This was my second time staying at this place and will be my last. I received a call from the hotel management saying that they will charge my card for a lost A/C remote. I called the management back explaining that my husband adjusted the A/C manually and did not use the remote. I even checked our bags to make... More

The room was ok, paid more than the advertised price and the breakfast was a dozen donuts on a table and a banana. No one at the front desk spoke clear English, we left and stayed at another place for the second night we were in town.

Booked 2 nights for the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. Cost was $139/night for a room that smelled like an ashtray and a bed that felt like a rock. (Not even worth the regular rate of $65/night.) Mold in the shower and the lobby smelled like bleach. I would have cancelled a day or two before arriving and stayed elsewhere, but they... More

First, a language barrier had caused the reservation to be incorrect, so our party had no reservation. But they said they had rooms available. My business partner had been walking around while I was sorting this out and he called me over prior to signing for rooms. He wanted to see a room first. We saw two. Both smelled strongly... More

Room musty smelling, carpet nasty, objects protruding up from floor. It is one step above rustic camping. Had to pay in advance. They keep your charge card information in a book with all of your information. I would not recommend this place to anyone and will not stay there again.

The second worse hotel I've ever stayed in. The bathroom was dirty--pee on the toilet, brown dirt around tub, hair in the bathtub and greasy feeling floor. The bedspread had cigarette burns in it. The bed was hard and you could feel the springs through it. Regulars at the hotel sat on a bench outside our room to smoke so... More

We stayed here while visiting the Kentucky Railway Museum for the day with Thomas the train. It is located fairly close to this event. Our stay here was pleasant. It's an old motel with no frills, but it was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the pool while we were there. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Would stay... More

I've stayed here many times over the years and have always had a good stay. Not the fanciest place in town, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is nothing to write home about, but that isn't a problem for me.

You get what you pay for. It was very inexpensive yet the room was very clean. It was old and tired although with a nice HDTV. There were seedy looking people hanging out on the second floor. And the office smelled of cat urine. Skip the free breakfast.
