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

Amid seasonal changes, a nearby fall festival, and an array of local activities, hotel accommodations were difficult to find for my family for my aunt's funeral recently. We were afforded two rooms at the Li'l Abner #2 location; one smoking, one non-smoking. As a former smoker I figured I would fare better in the smoking room than my sister who... More

Li'l Abner Motel is a Great place to stay. The front desk ladies were nice. The pool was fun. The rooms were very clean not a spec of dust anywhere. They have a front and back door with front and back parking which I liked actually. You can sit on the chairs out front your room and see the stars... More

Great location if you are going to do any of the fun adventurous activities in the area. This room has two doors (front and back) and you can park on either side (reserved spot). Open to the outside. Everything in the room was good! It was clean! It felt 'homey' and safe! The woman at the front desk counter was... More

Although their website is sketchy, and the overall look of the hotel looks rundown, Lil Abner was very nice. It feels safe, which it did not seem at first sight. Stay in a suite, as they are nice and homely. Bring shampoo/comb, as they are not provided and not sold

This is my first time staying at a motel in the US (usually B&B or hotels), so it's not the easiest one to review as I have nothing to compare with. We chose this place as it was one of few available places in the area, and were in general happy with the stay. I think is mostly used by... More

Going to Natural Bridge/Red River Gorge? Exit 33 Slade is the closest spot. The 'Lil Abner is the only show in town for a motel. Simple place, late 60's motel, decent bed, clean. Pitfalls/Pleasures: This is a dry county, had to drive 6 mi south to "The Beer Store." Yes, that is what the sign on the business said. Then... More
