French Quarter Inn-

I stayed here during the triathlon weekend and picked this hotel since it served as race headquarters for packet pick up.   The transition area was also set up just in front of the hotel which was very convienant.  The hotel itself is fairly nice, appeared to be clean, and the staff was pleasant.  There were some animals but I don't think you would have noticed if you hadn't seen them. The walls throughout the hotel are very thin and you can easily hear the occupants in the other rooms which wasn't a big problem for me. Breakfast is an extra eight bucks and the dining room doesn't open till 8am.   I was really surprised by this, since a lot of hotels are including breakfast in their nightly rates now.   But the 8am opening time really surprised me.   The hotel was full of triathletes who were up early for the race which made a 8am breakfast too late.  It seems that the owner would have recognized this and had made arrangements for the dining room to open early,   After the race I overheard another triathlete ask the front desk if she could extend her checkout 30 mins past the normal checkout time of noon.   The clerk immediately refused the request and stated the the owner was very adamant that there would be no late check outs.   Additionally, the pool was not in service during my stay.   Despite the temperatures in the 90's during memorial day weekend, they had not opened it for the summer yet.  Overall, I was left a bit disappointed by my stay,  the room was just average, and a bit noisy   The hotel could easily make up for its shortcomings by being more accommodating.    As it was, I never felt welcome at this hotel and it seemed that the owner simply tolerates the triathlon crowd rather than embracing us customers.   The French Quarter definitely has potential but next time I'll probably stay somewhere else.

This was a nice change from staying at normal hotel/motel. Staff was very nice, room was very clean. Will stay there again & recommend to anyone wanting to get away from the norm at a price the same as hotels out of the downtown area. There is a lot of history in the downtown area.

A lovely boutique hotel situated in the Historic Distric of Maysville. The staff goes out of their way to be accommodating and can be trusted to recommend not only good food but also places to visit. Don't miss the Miniature Museum on Sutton. The Pub is also a good place to spend an evening.

Room Tip: The suites are worth the cost.

Stayed one night while traveling though KY. This is a very nicely refurbished old hotel that is right downtown. My room had a nice view of the river and was clean and very well cared for. Railroad tracks run right behind the hotel, but I only heard one train and it was not loud. The staff is friendly and customer focused. Don't even think about the chain motels out on the AA.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view

We don't live far from the French Quarter but for a quick weekend away...it's our first choice. Everyone is super friendly and the hotel is very clean. Chandlers is a short walk away as well as a few other bars, shops etc. We always have a great time whenever we visit.

Good value. Very Clean. Not much around the hotel as far as dining.

Not bad (it's not like your in NY city), but we went for a couples type weekend (even tho the reason we went was business), and noted they had jacuzzi's/hot tubs, and liked the rustic on the river atmosphere we thought it would evoke. The main reason we went was hot tub, even w/o the hanky/panky, she likes a good soak regardless and I was determined to see that she got one. Was told upon arrival (should've bolted then) that the tub only works for 15 mins. Total. Decided to stay anyway. The clerk was right. My beef was that they should advertise that. I would've at least like for her to have spent 16 mins in there. Aside from the false advertising (Yeah, we have a hot tub, but for just a little bit. A real little bit), it was a nice place in a great location. Very nice riverside park adjacent to the property, along w/a couple of lively restaurant/bars nearby, all walking distance. Does have some quirks (animals abound), but hey, the city code inspector keeps a low profile in this country. Overall, decent place, just wish they would explain more about there amenities and not try to get you in. I had called a newer place up on the hill away from the river w/perfectly fine hot tubs, but wanted the atmosphere. It does deliver atmosphere. Overall, it's probably what you're expecting, unless it's a long soak in the tub.

Room Tip: Not sure about pets, but if they don't allow them, it would shock me. We refer to this place af...
