I booked 5-rooms for a motorcycle tour group. I was not expecting the Ritz in Slade, KY, however, we were comfortable, the rooms were clean and the desk clerk was kind and helpful. Overall, we were very pleased with the accommodations, but a nearby, open, restaurant would had been good. We would stay again.

Positives: good price, clean, friendly, close to Natural Bridge, refrigerator and microwave. Negatives: Our nonsmoking room reeked of cigarette smoke. They have a big sign on the counter that there would be a $250 fine if smoking in nonsmoking room. Apparently you have to be caught in the act. There was also a burn hole in the bedspread, so obviously... More

For a hotel of this age, it was really quite amazing to have such a positive experience. The room was spotless & smelled good. The bathroom was recently remodeled & had a fantastic shower head & water pressure (much appreciated after all the hiking & sweating!). The beds were nothing fancy, but were comfortable & the blankets were new. I... More

Lil Abner was in a great location where you could easily get to Red River Gorge and Natural Bridges State Park. We stayed in the two room suites Unit 50 and 51. The beds were comfy, there was a comfy recliner, two TV's and microwave and refrigerator. We had some nice hikes in Red River Gorge to Gray's Arch, Hidden... More

This is an older roadside, well kept motel. The place is family owned, and very accomodating. The pool looked great for kids, but I didn't use it. The rooms are clean and comfortable. This is a great place for an overnight in the area. Would also be a great place after a long day of hiking, etc. Also very reasonable.

Clean, friendly, nothing fancy, but Felt safe enough to leave the door unlocked. Very nice pool! Room had a little odor, but for a roadside motel, was very nice. Stayed in MUCH worse for more money! Great location, right outside natural bridge park.

A group of about 15 of us descended on L'il Abners for the weekend. We booked several rooms and the top half of a house. Unfortunately, it was a bit rainy for the weekend but we had fun anyway. The rooms were clean and very servicable. The staff was very friendly and responsive. We spent many hours sitting ouside in... More

Stayed one night on a motorcycle trip. Shared a room with a friend. Several other friends rented rooms too. We sat on the front walk and talked for hours. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, the cost was low. I definitely recommend. It has a pool, but I did not use it.

Always clean, always affordable, and close to anything and everything you'd want to do in the area! There are a few shops in walking distance. They also have cottages which are extremely nice and spacious. Love the pool as well!

My husband and I visited the area the day after Thanksgiving. We like to go to Natural Bridge State Park and The Red River Gorge. We had stayed at the state park inn before and another nice motel in the area. We decided to check out the Li'l Abner Motel because we had passed before on our way to the... More
