Let me address first the two positives: A. right next to walmart and within walking distance to cracker barrel. B. Free wi-fi. Now with that being said, I would NEVER stay here again. I stayed at this hotel this weekend because I was running a half marathon in Central City and didnt want to spend much on a hotel. I... More

We were in the area looking at real estate and decided to stay overnight. We prayed about where to stay, called numerous places and even drove to Central City, but were sorely disappointed in the available and affordable accommodations. We returned to Big Spring Inn, having booked a room online, and were happy with the rest we got in the... More

We were in Madisonville yesterday due to driving my boyfriend home. I wanted a place close to home and he suggested this hotel as best hotel in town for the money. On the way we picked up a coupon book. They have a special rate of 43.95 for a double room. We thought great deal. So we arrived at the... More

During our last annual visit to Madisonville, we decided to try the Big Spring Inn. I had high hopes having seen the pictures here and on a few other sites. Well, this place has quite a reputation with the locals. We were told horrific stories of roaches, doors that don't lock, and other things which I won't go into. My... More
