“Cheap, Clean, OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

It's an Econolodge...it's not a Drury Inn...it's not a Hampton Inn...keep that in mind and don't set expectations too high and your budget travel needs are met just fine. Other Cave City motels were offering the usual holiday weekend tourist rip-off rates...not this one! The non-smoking king room we were given was actually smoked in and we were moved right away; however, at the expense of having to listen to neighbors' yapping little dogs...quite rude and annoying! Breakfast was fine; toaster-variety hot food w/microwaveable eggs and sausage biscuits; doughnuts, bagels, and cereal; no fruit though. We were there primarily for the pool and actually had it to ourselves a couple times on a 4th of July weekend! Cheap and clean and OK for a night or two!

Room Tip: Rooms on the courtyard/pool side of the building aren't in direct afternoon sun. If you're n...

Great Hotel, Great Room, Great Service, Great Price! I have stayed at this hotel several times and I even stayed there on and off for a month on business. I travel for a living so I experience all types of hotels so I appreciate it when I find a great clean room and great hotel facility with fantastic service at such a low cost. Also both managers and the entire staff were awesome and made you feel safe and right at home. The room was extremely clean and modern and I wish all hotels were this clean friendly and comfortable at such a great price. Since I travel a lot in this area I have tried some of the other hotels and I found that this hotel has an equal or even better room than the higher priced hotels in this area, and their prices are much better. I will stay there every chance I get on business and exploring the caves and sites in the area. Make yourself happy and save yourself trouble by booking here!

The only positive thing about this place is the pool......The price for this hotel was expensive (188 dollars) for 2 nights (memorial weekend). It was dirty and everything was in poor shape. No extra pillows and the beds were very uncomfortable. If another place had a room we would of demanded our money back on this one!!

Room Tip: Dont stop here

I must say that although this hotel could use some cosmetic work we had a good stay. Our room was acceptably clean and although sheets were recently cleaned (bleached), they probably should be replaced soon due to some small stains. This is a great location I would love to see them do some upkeep. It doesnt need anything major. Breakfast was a very pleasant surprise. I have seen complaints in some reviews but the food was great. It was a little crowded in there waiting for the microwave, but they had sausage biscuits, bagels, egg patties, eggo waffles, cereal, etc. It was very filling and I enjoyed mine by the beautiful blue pool. We will probably stay here again and hope some of the minor things are updated next trip. This place has so much going for it, I hope they will not let it deteriorate. Check in girl Marcie was very nice as was the gentleman that checked us out. Thank you for a good night's sleep! I usually don't sleep well away from home. That is a plus.

I don't usually stay in EconoLodges, but ended up at this one after a long, tiring day on the road with my 90-year-old mother. The clerk at the front desk, Marcie, made sure we had a ground-floor room, gave us the AAA rate adjustment that had been missed when we called the corporate 800 number to reserve the room, and then fixed the in-room refrigerator (which actually wasn't broken; it was just new and exceptionally quiet, a big plus when I was sleeping later!)
I have allergies and sensitivities to scents, which is why I usually stay in "better" hotels. But this room was very, very clean, and there was no stuffiness or residual smells from room deodorizers, carpet-fresh, or anything else.
The continental breakfast was more than satisfactory, especially for the very low room rate, and check-out was quick and friendly. I don't often get to Kentucky, but if I am ever in that area again, I will definitely stay at this EconoLodge.

This is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at in my life. There's a reason it's the cheapest -- because it's dirty and, well, cheap -- don't let anyone con you into staying here due to the price. Hardest beds ever. I had to use spare pillows to sleep on to get three hours of sleep before being woke up by a lawnmower, cutting grass that looks like it is cut every day. I'm thinking it is their wake up call to guests that need to check out. Too bad I wasn't wanting to stay only one day in Cave City.
