“A Good Night's Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We were traveling through the area and stopped for 1 night. It was clean and in a safe location right off I-75. The staff was friendly and helpful. We went into town and ate at the Historic Boone Tavern Restaurant. It was casual eligance dining. The best thing was the service by the local Berea College students that work 15 hours a week to off set their college tuition. Driving around the college and the small town was interesting.

Dear Jimmy30263,
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience here at our hotel! Many of our guests love the fact that our hotel is right off of Interstate 75, which makes it very easy to spot. Our staff here at the hotel are very dedicated to their jobs and committed to bringing a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee to all our guests that come through Berea. I am glad you were able to eat at Boone Tavern, one of our local restaurants. They have a wonderful selection of food choices and it can be also a romantic restaurant as well. When I travel, I love to try different local restaurants instead of sticking with a chain restaurant. Next time you come to Berea, be sure to visit some of the craft shops near the college as well as visit the Kentucky Artisan Center. All of the crafts are made by Kentucky artists; some even live in Berea. Thank you again for your excellent comments about our hotel and we look forward to accommodating your lodging needs again in the future if your travel plans bring you back to Berea.

I have stayed at this hotel 4 or 5 times now and have always had a positive experience. It is neat, clean and spacious. It is very convenient to the college and the staff is always friendly. There is always plenty of breakfast choices available but it is a bit blah like most hotel breakfasts. :)

Dear Wendy J,
Thank you for the wonderful compliments about our hotel! Our staff members are committed to making sure every guest is satisfied with their guest experience from the time they clock in to the time they clock out. I am happy you found our rooms neat, clean, and spacious! As a traveler myself, I am always looking for a room with lots of space and that is super clean as well as having that fresh clean smell when you first walk into a room. Our hotel always tries to provide a variety of breakfast items that pleases our guests. We appreciate your business and compliments. We look forward seeing you again soon when your travels bring you back to our beautiful town of Berea!

Dear BlackCatLady,
Thank you for your compliments about our hotel! Our staff always strives to bring good, quality service to our guests. The king suites are very spacious where you have extra room...its one of the qualities I like about a hotel room. The whirlpool most generally fits up to two people comfortably. When it comes to Berea being a dry town, you can bring your own drinks to the hotel to enjoy in your room. If you are coming from the North, Richmond would be a great stopping point or if your coming from the south, London would be a good stopping point. Even though Berea is a dry town, the town is filled with so many beautiful places to see and attractions that can not be missed. Plus the wonderful local restaurants are a plus! Again than you for rating our hotel and we look forward to seeing you again if your travel plans bring you back to Berea.

We stayed one night and were pleased with our stay. Our room had 2 queen beds with a sofa in a sitting area. The room was clean and had easy access from I-75 which is a plus. we didn't get a chance to try the breakfast.

A friend & I just returned from an overnight in Berea, KY. The Comfort Inn was conveniently located right off I-75 & easy to access. The accommodations were very nice - we had a fairly large room with 2 queen sized beds & also a small sofa & work desk & chair. The room & bathroom were clean, & although our room was right across from the elevator, it was very quiet. Breakfast was included in our room rate, & it was a typical hotel breakfast. I liked that hard boiled eggs & fresh apples, oranges & bananas were available (for those of us on low-carb, gluten free diets).
My friend is a swimmer & she used the indoor pool twice over our stay. Both times (in the evening around 9 p.m. & in the morning around 7:30 a.m.) the pool was not crowded & she had plenty of room to swim laps. Everyone we encountered that worked at this hotel was very friendly, from the front desk staff to the maids. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here just one night on our way to Gatlinburg, TN. I was very impressed with the overall room size and the fact that our regular room had a mini-fridge (which was helpful in keeping our food cold that we brought from home for vacation.) The location is also great being that it is just off the exit.
The breakfast in the morning was better than your average hot hotel breakfast; complete with bagels, toast, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, grits, oatmeal, omelets, sausage, and make your own waffles.

Room Tip: Our room faced the highway so there was a little more noise than some people would want but I didn...

Recommended by tripadvisor in 2011, this hotel which was formerly Best Western is located off I-75 at exit 76. From its location you can access many chain restaurants, local restaurants and gas stations. It also features an indoor swimming pool for your relaxation/exercise and free local calls. It is a short drive away from Kentucky Horse Park and Renfro Valley Entertainment Centre.
