We were on our way home from a cruise in New Orleans and got stuck across the street at McDonald's in a very unexpected late-year snow storm. I looked across the street and saw what appeared to be a run down old motel. I dreaded that it might be our only choice besides sleeping at McDonalds. I called over and... More

We stayed at the Bryce Inn for 2 nights while visiting the Mammoth Caves. The room as clean- the beds clean & bug free. A fantastic way to cool off at the end of a day of hiking- the pool was awesome. I only have one complaint- the toilet was absolutely filthy. There was no possible chance that that the... More

Rooms were very clean and the staff was very accommodating. Looks a little sketch on the outside, but don't let that deter you. For $68 a night, this place is great and located right between Mammoth Cave and Bowling Green. Worth noting, the town is a dry, so you'll have to go to another town for alcohol if you stay... More

Don't know where to start. Everything was superb. The cleanliness, the service. Etc. All we had to do is tell them what we needed. And it was there. Location was great for our needs. It was close to everything. If I were to go back there in that area again, that is where I would stay. It was that great.... More

We ended up getting stranded when our car broke down on I65N, and someone stopped to pick us up and our 3 year old Princess. They brought us here to Bryce Inn. At first I was wondering because the outside looked a bit bare. The price was awesome and we ended up getting the best service possible. The staff at... More

Love this place. We stayed here not knowing what it was like. Pulling in it is small. The lady at front desk was very friendly. Got to the room and will have to say we were surprised. It was as clean as could be and felt very comfortable. We will for sure be back.

For the overall price, I would say that the motel was average. The room was relatively clean, the mattresses were clean, and the room was nicely made up. The room was damp and slightly moldy smelling. The bathroom was super small, with only the place to stand being where the door swung open. Just a tub and toilet. The sink... More

We always welcome any guest to look at the room before renting, to make sure it is suitable for their needs. Thanks for the suggestion of a curtain between the bath areas. We will certainly consider that. We recommend no more than four people per room. More

We stopped here over spring break with our 10 yr old. Our room was SO CLEAN, bathroom included! Very convenient location and so glad we chose here instead of a chain hotel in Bowling Green! The owners were very hospitable and recommended two great places to eat, both local, one for dinner, one for breakfast. Would highly recommend staying here... More

Stay here if you can get a room. The room is exceptionally clean and roomy. Beds were comfy, room was cool. Its a basic room, and the best part is that it was clean and did not smell like a chain motel. It is a very convenient place to stay at a reasonable price. McDonalds, Wendy's, gas stations all on...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We would like to welcome you to Bryce Inn. Centrally located between Mammoth Cave National Park and the National Corvette Museum, Bryce Inn has been featured in many TV spots and newspaper articles for its unique style and hospitality, and for the many Corvette clubs and reunions we've hosted over the years. Just off of interstate 65, (at exit 38), in the quaint little town of Smiths Grove, Ky, enjoy the relaxed country atmosphere of our "white glove clean" rooms. Bryce Inn is a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city. ... more   less
