“NO EXTRA towels - hassled by owner because I wanted extra towels”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had a formal dinner to attend, so we took a shower. We wanted fresh towels for in the morning before checking out, so I asked the owner for more. She refused, telling me "I put two towels and washcloths, why more?" so I had to explain my intentions. She then questioned me as to whether my daughter, who attends WKU and had come to visit us at the motel, was actually staying there or not. She finally gave me one set after sending me to my room to get the dirty ones to give her.

The beds are also very hard, and they won't give you extra pillows either.

I have NEVER had such a hassle to get extra towels. Although the rooms are very clean, I won't stay here again (total of two stays in the last year) because I shouldn't have to be interrogated over towels!

The time I was their I had a lousy experience. I rented a room for a week and was harassed by the people who ran the place because our heat was on, I had turned it on so my children would not be cold after their shower....some nerve. I also found bed bugs after three days in the room. Needless to say I could not get a refund. The internet was spotty at best and customer service needs drastic improvement. I would not recommend my worst enemy to the Cardinal Motel.
