4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Nice clean place to stay,king suites are huge and very nice! whirlpool tubs could be a little larger,hard time fitting it it.Staff very friendly.Dry Town,so if you are looking for a bar or restaurant with alcohol close by ,look elsewhere.

Room Tip: King Suites are huge.Had 13 family members stop by to visit and had plenty of room!

BereaComfort, General Manager at Holiday Inn Express Berea, responded to this review, August 24, 2012
Dear BlackCatLady,
Thank you for your compliments about our hotel! Our staff always strives to bring good, quality service to our guests. The king suites are very spacious where you have extra room...its one of the qualities I like about a hotel room. The whirlpool most generally fits up to two people comfortably. When it comes to Berea being a dry town, you can bring your own drinks to the hotel to enjoy in your room. If you are coming from the North, Richmond would be a great stopping point or if your coming from the south, London would be a good stopping point. Even though Berea is a dry town, the town is filled with so many beautiful places to see and attractions that can not be missed. Plus the wonderful local restaurants are a plus! Again than you for rating our hotel and we look forward to seeing you again if your travel plans bring you back to Berea.

We stayed one night and were pleased with our stay. Our room had 2 queen beds with a sofa in a sitting area. The room was clean and had easy access from I-75 which is a plus. we didn't get a chance to try the breakfast.

A friend & I just returned from an overnight in Berea, KY. The Comfort Inn was conveniently located right off I-75 & easy to access. The accommodations were very nice - we had a fairly large room with 2 queen sized beds & also a small sofa & work desk & chair. The room & bathroom were clean, & although our room was right across from the elevator, it was very quiet. Breakfast was included in our room rate, & it was a typical hotel breakfast. I liked that hard boiled eggs & fresh apples, oranges & bananas were available (for those of us on low-carb, gluten free diets).
My friend is a swimmer & she used the indoor pool twice over our stay. Both times (in the evening around 9 p.m. & in the morning around 7:30 a.m.) the pool was not crowded & she had plenty of room to swim laps. Everyone we encountered that worked at this hotel was very friendly, from the front desk staff to the maids. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here just one night on our way to Gatlinburg, TN. I was very impressed with the overall room size and the fact that our regular room had a mini-fridge (which was helpful in keeping our food cold that we brought from home for vacation.) The location is also great being that it is just off the exit.
The breakfast in the morning was better than your average hot hotel breakfast; complete with bagels, toast, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, grits, oatmeal, omelets, sausage, and make your own waffles.

Room Tip: Our room faced the highway so there was a little more noise than some people would want but I didn...

Recommended by tripadvisor in 2011, this hotel which was formerly Best Western is located off I-75 at exit 76. From its location you can access many chain restaurants, local restaurants and gas stations. It also features an indoor swimming pool for your relaxation/exercise and free local calls. It is a short drive away from Kentucky Horse Park and Renfro Valley Entertainment Centre.

After the transition from a Best Western Executive Inn & Suites to the Comfort Inn & Suites in 2003, Comfort Inn & Suites has been able to host multifarious amount of people. Today, I was granted the opportunity to converse with the manager, Mr. Ahmad Reynolds. Through the conversation with him, I was shown the grave amount of hospitality that the customers receive when they are living at Comfort Inn.

The hospitality even spreads online. On the Comfort Inn & Suites Trip advisor page, if a customer is not satisfied with their stay, they are addressed. Also during my visit, I was able to tour a room. The room on the second floor was spacious. It had a couch at the entry way and two beds that sat in front of a flat screen television. I personally like the feel of the room and the color choice. The beds were comfortable and the fit for a king. I admired the space in the bathroom. It did not seem to be cluttered nor did it seem to be overbearing.

This Comfort Inn and Suites is tucked away amongst many fast food chains is the perfect spot to reside. I enjoy this place because the rooms are built like suites, some with a living/lounge area attached to them. This hotel has been praised for its well maintained suites due to excellent house-keeping services. Moreover, It's always nice to see smiles and greetings from the staff members who bring a sense of comfort to every visitor that walks through their doors. I enjoyed visiting this hotel, and plan on coming back in the future.
