“Very nice hotel, remote, but well-situated”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We stayed at this hotel while visiting "cave country" sites in Kentucky, and it is a very nice property. As expected, staff were very nice, and the rooms were clean and nice. The breakfast was very good, and you will be very happy with their quality. Likewise, the pool was clean and large, and kids had a ball. This hotel is near the Interstate, but there isn't much at this exit. A couple convenience stores on the west side with the hotel, and on the east side there's a Love's Truck Stop with McDonald's. The best part is that on the west side - maybe a mile or two from the hotel - is Kentucky Underground. I'll review that park separately, but it is a neat place. McDonald's is about your only dining option at this exit, but in 10 minutes you'll be down the Interstate with several dining options - Mexican, fast food, home cooking, and etc. Also within 10 minutes is Dinosaur World and 20 minutes to Mammoth Cave. So, this place is a very nice property, and even though a bit remote, I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel, which will have you on the opposite side of the Interstate...

I've stayed in this hotel several times and have never been disappointed. There are cheaper options in Cave City but they are not nearly as nice. Rooms are clean, Breakfast is good and staff is very nice.

I didn't have a reservation, but when I stopped there the lady at the front desk was very helpful. Not only did she help with the check-in, but she gave me a lot of helpful information about the community. The breakfast food were very good. Location was quite. Directly off I65. Very close to Kentucky Down Under.

I like staying at Hampton Inn's and enjoyed my stay. But it was an average stay. Nobody really went out of their way to provide that special customer service that would have set them apart. The outside was very clean as was my room and the main lobby and breakfast area. But the hotel is right in front of a truck stop and the trucks are very noisy and woke me up numerous times throughout my stay. Breakfast could be improved. But I would stay again without hesitation.

Hotel sits just off the Horse Cave interchange and is a bright spot on that side of the highway amidst an older hotel, gas station, etc. The Hampton Inn hotel sits back from the roadway and is nicely landscaped with plenty of available parking. The front desk clerk was friendly and though I had arrived without a reservation, very quickly took my information and assigned a nice room, a comfortable bed with sparkling white Duvet sheets and comforter. The hotel sports a large heated indoor pool with doors to an outdoor patio. A fitness room adjoins the pool area also. The Lobby is huge and where the complimentary breakfast is available. Various table heights and chairs are available as well as wide screen TV. A full breakfast was enjoyed with coffee to go.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel, facing the parking lot, are quieter.

We chose this location due to proximity to our daughter's wedding, and to be honest, weren't expecting much. In fact, we were (okay, mostly I was) prepared to grin and bear it for two nights. Front desk staff (wish I had taken their names) were very friendly, and check-in was very quick and easy. The room was very clean and the furniture was in very good condition. The air conditioner was very quiet. There was a Post-It note on the bed letting us know that the sheets and duvet covers are changed every day (what a concept!). There were plenty of towels for the two of us (some hotels skimp on this). The free breakfast had the usual choices, and there were several different coffee choices available. Checkout was a breeze, and we were offered coffee to take with us on our way out. We will definitely stay there again when we visit the newlyweds!

The hotel itself was fine, but it was not the friendliest staff ever. Breakfast was okay but not as good as some Hamptons. Because of its proximity to Mammoth Cave National Park, the location was good.
