I've stayed at this hotel several times over the years back when it was still a Days Inn and still spend the night here whenever I'm passing through. The motel is currently under new ownership and they are doing still renovations, but all of the things I liked about it before are still the same. It may not look like a whole lot on the outside (it is a small two-story motel located across from a truck stop), but it is a good value for those looking for a place to stop for the night and not expecting anything real fancy.
The rooms and furnishings are clean and somewhat outdated, but at least the bed is comfortable and the linens were all clean. They also provide a free coffeemaker with coffee in the room. The only drawback on my recent visit was that the wi-fi wasn't working and the phones were not yet installed by the new owners, but that didn't bother me too much since I was just staying for one night. The TV selection is limited to just a few channels (some local stations from Louisville along with FX, CNN and the Weather Channel) but I don't watch much during overnight stops except for news and weather so that was fine by me. The area around the hotel is mainly used as an overnight stop for OTR truck drivers (who usually sleep in their cabs) but I wasn't bothered by that either as I still got a good night's rest.
There is also a restaurant downstairs (only open during the day) and an upstairs lounge which was still closed on my last visit. However, there is a Pilot travel plaza across the road that has a Subway inside and there is a Country Style restaurant next door to it. There is also the Overlook Restaurant a few miles down the road which is worth checking out for the incredible view of the Ohio River.
This may not seem like an ideal stay for most people, but this will fit the bill for solo traveler's looking for an inexpensive place to spend the night. The best part is being located right off of I-64. Hopefully on my next visit the new owners will have finished the renovations and have the phones and wi-fi working again. But I'd still rather stay here than anyplace else in the area just for the value and location.
