Don't book through Expedia - paid $10 more per night with AAA discount than my sister did for the same room with no discount. Otherwise the room was nice, great location, breakfast no better or worse than expected, staff was pleasant.

too expensive for Ashland kentucky. If you think $80.00 is reasonable, then you are very wrong. most hotels run around $50-60 here.

I have stayed here before and it has gone downhill quickly. It is a new hotel but seems like they chenged owners or managers and quality and service have suffered. Rooms are dirty now, hair everywhere, staff is extremely non-friendly, like you are bothering them just if you need a wake-up call. Do not stay here, also prices have gone up to over $80.00, not worth it in Ashland, KY.

I stayed at the Best Western River Cities in Russell, KY Dec. 18-20, 2003. It's a new hotel, clean rooms, free continental b-fast. If you're familiar with the Ashland/Ironton area, this is pretty much the best hotel in those parts. I paid $75 per night for a king non-smoking room.
There are other older, less expensive hotels in the area, but for cleanliness and convenience, this is the place.
