Sleep Inn & Suites

Reviewed January 7, 2013

We stayed here to visit the mammoth cave national park and the national corvette museum in bowling green.

The entire facility is clean and very up to date as it's almost new. Room was nice and clean with a comfortable mattress. TV was nice flat screen. Pool is small but it gets the job done to relax at the end of a long day in the caves. Breakfast is typical hotel fare with muffins, toast, waffles, etc... however they have cinnamon maple waffles now which are incredible. Staff was friendly and kept up on things.

Game room is lame but that's on the company that owns and operates the machines, not the hotel.

Room Tip: check out Jolly's Smokehouse in cave city just a short drive from the hotel to get some real BBQ...

The hotel is very nice with large, clean rooms and the standard morning breakfast buffet and free wi-fi at a great price. The only downside was the noise. The room heating/air conditioning units in the rooms are very loud - loud enough to wake me up when it turned on in the middle of the night. However, all-in-all, a very good value and good place to saty when visiting Mammoth Cave.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the value in our hotel. In addition, thank you for letting us know that their was a problem with your stay, specifically the room heater. We'll get maintenance to take a look at it and see if we can't get it to operate more quietly.

We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were big, clean and the beds were comfy. Staff was very nice. Breakfast was good. We liked the game room. Note the pool is very small- with 6 boys under 10, it was crowded, but this was not a major problem as swimming was not a focus.

Room Tip: with 3 kids, we chose a room with 2 queen beds and a rollout couch. Perfect for our needs and we di...

We checked out another hotel near this one and decided to check the rates at the Sleep Inn and glad we did. We feel we got an excellent value for our money. The room was awesome-the hotel is new and everything was very clean, worked well, the decor is bright and cheery, the public areas wonderful. Everything you need is here. The bathrooms were a good size and the towels were large and thick. The bed extremely comfortable. Near restaurants and tourist attractions.

Why the 4 rating? Service. They were efficient, no doubt. Check in-the person barely spoke to us except out of necessity. We thought she was having a bad day. Almost the same treatment in the morning-though a different person, who was speaking with a fellow employee. Both were NOT interested in customer communication. I was taken aback by the customer service. I even mentioned how much we liked the hotel, room, location and they nodded! OK, then...!

Recommend anyway. Who needs the front desk help? ;)

This was our second stay at this motel. The first time was a year ago when they really were new. We stayed on 2nd floor that time and the first floor this time. Used the Coupon Rate- $59.99. Room was large with 2 queen beds. Has "double door closet." On ground floor and looks outside to yard space. Large bathroom. Interestingly enough, the cold water was very warm. Usually the complaints are that there wasn't any hot water, but in this case, there was no cold water at the sink faucet. Breakfast bar offered blueberry waffles, as well as the regular waffles batter. Bananas were extremely ripe (as in very mushy), so was disappointed. All-in-all a good night's sleep at this motel for a reasonable $$.

We stayed here to be close to Mammoth Caves which we were visiting. It is a short, easy 10 minute drive to the caves so it is convenient. Cave City looks like it is only there to support the tourism created by the caves as its a small town of mostly hotels and fast food restaurants. I am not sure if there are hotels up or down I-65 but it might be worth looking if you want something more plush. This was clean and safe so we found it sufficient.

From the outside, the hotel is painted an ugly color so it is not appealing. The inside is newer and stylish. The rooms look like they were decorated with IKEA furniture so it's a cheaper feeling, but decent. Our room had a king size bed then a huge empty space that looked like they forgot to put something in there...a little weird. They have showers, no tubs, arranged so they do not need a door which is a cool design and helps make it feel cleaner since there are not shower curtains. There is a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker in the room so nice conveniences.

On the down side, I really disliked the soaps the hotel provided, and the thin towels. Mostly I disliked the noise. Very thin walls and doors so with lots of families staying there, it gets very noisy. You can also hear the people in the rooms above yours. Like other travelers, we found the breakfast unedible. Very few choices and high on fat and grease. We went down the street to get an egg mcmuffin.

Bottom line is we paid $60 for a Sunday night stay and it was appropriately priced, clean and safe so we were happy.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 3rd floor at the end of the hallway to avoid the noise.
