Stearns, KY is a very poor area without much shopping, hotels, or industry for jobs. They do have the Scenic Railroad, which draws a lot of visitors, and it is gorgeous-high recommend you take the train ride! This hotel is a small locally owned and operated non-chain business. It reminds me of staying with family! The lady answered the phone... More

I stayed at this motel recently while in Stearns with family members. The motel is adequate but don't expect any frills. It provides basic accommodations and is reasonably priced. My room was clean but the sheets were somewhat dingy and the place could use some sprucing up. An unexpected feature is the homemade treats for guests to enjoy each day.... More

Enjoyed our stay very much! Owners were very friendly and helped with finding things to do. They have homemade treats for you to have at night. I highly recommend the carrot cake! We rode the Big South Fork Railway and enjoyed it very much.

A clean room and the staff going the extra mile made our stay memorable. The motel had recently suffered a lighting hit that made the cable tv unreliable, but the staff did everything in their power to make up for that, including offering to move us to another room or to give us a refund. The pool area was inviting... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and the owner made sure we had everything we needed. The first night we came in from eating and the owner had left a treat on our bedside table for a night snack. The pool is beautiful with a full outdoor kitchen along side of it.
