We loved the big king suite we got. The room was awesome. The staff were very nice, especially the lady who worked front desk at night. The pool room was humid, but looked very nice. Overall we had a very lovely stay.

The hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly.The hostess in the breakfast area was especially customer service oriented. Our complaint was the large, crumbling, water stained area in the ceiling by the beds. Something I'd expect in a one star -- not Country Inn & Suites.

I booked two rooms for the evening of a wedding. I fould everything as expected - no surprises. That's what I like when I travel. The breakfast was a little better than most in this mid-priced type of hotel.

Stayed there for the Rolex. It is a good location near the highway. The room was clean, comfortable bed. We had a room facing the road and it was very noisy. If you are a light sleeper, don't stay unless you get a room on the back side. Breakfast was good for continental items.

Spent 4 nights. Stayed in one of the suites. Very nice staff with Southern hospitality. Housekeeping exceptionally good. We stayed on the back side of the hotel to avoid noise, but we did hear the voom, voom, voom of motors up and down old HWY 60 through the night. The hotel itself is modest as is the room redecorating. Our room had mud (plaster, that is) on one of the drapery panels. the tile edging in the bathroom had gaps, stained ceiling over the shower faucet and caulking needed around the tub. Having said that, the price was also reasonable by comparison. Cookies in the lobby were a nice touch. The buffet was only so-so with pre-cooked eggs and cereals. Again, delightful staff. We were only 8 miles from Kentucky Horse Park and pretty close to Keenland so the overall location was wonderful, even though the site itself was old and not in the greatest area. On the other side of Hwy 60, there is lots of growth...blocks and blocks of stores and chain-type restaurants. Malone's was good.
