Absolutely great stay at the Jailer’s Inn. Paul the owner was very gracious, gave us a tour of the jail, served us breakfast each morning, and was frequently available for any suggestions for tours or places to eat. We had two couples and stayed in the adjoining rooms eight and nine close to the road it was very private yet we had ample space in the middle for all of us to congregate and relax. We would highly recommend this location as it is convenient to the tourist sites and other eating establishments. If we ever return to Bardstown from Florida we will Definitely stay at this location again
We’ve stayed at the Jailer’s Inn multiple times (and according to the owner, Paul) that makes us “repeat offenders” since we keep landing in “jail”. The Jailer’s Inn is a wonderful experience all around! Paul, Sylvia, and Debbie are terrific and attentive to your needs. Breakfast is always amazing and with those think jail walls - you don’t hear a sound at night..even though you are in the HEART of downtown Bardstown. Everything is an easy walk - restaurants, shops, pubs, and even the Museum of Whiskey History. Several bourbon distilleries are close by too! The Jailer’s Inn has it all and we’ll be back soon!
Old, old former jail with accommodations. Each room full of history and antiques. Breakfast in the courtyard was excellent and a tour of the jail followed. As we traveled with another couple, we opted for the adjoining suites which included a conference type room great for group gathering. Updated bathrooms. Hosts were fabulous and took such great pride in their facility.
This is a tired place. It needs LOTS of maintenance. In town, across from Mammy's Kitchen so there's that. We will never go back. We were leaving early and requested something to go, but breakfast was set at 9am.
This was a very cool historic jail turned B&B. We stayed in the garden room. It was very clean and pretty comfortable. My biggest complaint was that because of the age of the building each room doesn't have its own thermostat. We were very cold. There was a thermometer on the wall in the hall and it was only reading like 63 degrees. We went down and rang the bell and the lady had it set on 65 degrees I think but only turned it up to 67 degrees. There was some kind of base heating in our room that we couldn't get to work either. Breakfast was very nice! Would have gave more stars if they would have heated the place better. Also they charged an additional $25 a night for our son to stay in a room that has 2 queen beds. If he was an adult I could see that but he is under 18. It was a bit over priced. We payed like $211.00 for one night!…
If you are looking for something different with a great location and breakfast, Jailers Inn Bed and Breakfast is the place! We stayed for a long weekend while touring the Bourbon trail for my husbands 50th Birthday Celebration! First time in Kentucky and we loved it! The location of the Inn in Bardstown is perfect with restaurants and bars close by. The rooms were very comfortable…we were 3 couples with the 2nd floor all to ourselves. Breakfast was served right outside our room and it was delicious! Paul and the staff were very nice and accommodating and even served us a little earlier on the last day so that we could make it to the airport on time. Paul made our visit extra special by talking to us every morning with great suggestions and taking fun photos of our group. The Jailers Inn is a very nice family owned Inn and we hope to be repeat offenders some day!…
I’m sure plenty of people like quaint and history and if that is what you’re looking for, this had that appeal. Disappointments were the noise in our bedroom from room above us, the lack of shower curtain around the tub which just made things weird getting a shower in the morning and breakfast was served at one time, 9am which did not fit with our full day of touring, so we did not have breakfast. Updated from the 1800’s (but so is our B&B near Louisville) and Jailers Inn could still use some updating.
We stayed 3 nights and did not want to leave. Big clean room. delicious breakfast provided and you must take a tour. it is fun and informative. Paul and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We will be back and I can't wait. The location is perfect.
What a nice B and B. Paul in his staff did an excellent job of making us comfortable and at home. Great southern hospitality. Delicious breakfast both mornings and good conversations. We stayed in the jail room and had fun and unique experience. Made a new friend in Max the bunny, the resident pet. He was entertaining to pet and feed. Look forward to visiting again. Thank you Paul and staff for a fun Halloween weekend.
We stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great breakfasts and even a bunny named Max that came out to visit every morning. The beds were comfortable and the tour of the jail was fun. I highly recommend this B&B.
