“Nice, clean, affordable place to stay while visiting Red River Gorge area”
Reviewed May 23, 2011

Me and my wife typically camp while visiting Red River Gorge, but because of the time of year and with 2 year old daughter in tow thought we would be best to check out the local hotels. There is not many in the immediate area with close proximately to Gorge. We were going to stay at the Natural Bridge State Park Resort, but at the time they did not have pet-friendly rooms. All the resort are in the process of adding them this year. So I googled hotels near the Gorge and came across this one. The feedback was very positive, and they do permit pets with extra surcharge. The hotel is nothing fancy, your basic 50's era motor lodge. The rooms were dated, but very clean and comfortable. We stayed in what I believe was the suite, which was roomier with mini-fridge and couch. I do not believe they internet, but did have cable TV. Just a heads up, the restaurants in the area is limited. You have your choice of fast foods, but we were looking for something healthier and local. The front Desk recommended the family restaurant up the road. It was a step on from fast foods, but still nothing great. Lots of smokers. I believe there was a chinese and/or mexican restaurant in town. If we stay here again, next time we will bring our own food.

Our room had Tv, microwave, refrigerator,and WiFi. The bed was very comfortable. There are no extras like shampoo, toothpaste, room coffee pot, or hair dryer, but we didn't need it. Coffee was available in the office. We were very well pleased with the motel and the staff!

My family was looking for a room near Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge. We chose this motel because of the good ratings on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. We rented two rooms, one a non-smoking and one smoking room. Both rooms were exceptionally clean. Both rooms contained a mini fridge, but the non-smoking room also contained a microwave and small kitchenette with a sink. The beds were clean and comfortable and all the furniture was in good repair. The wireless internet was quick and easy to connect to. The location isn't bad. It's fairly close to a food court, a Dairy Queen and McDonald's. The biggest downside to this motel is the t.v. The non-smoking room t.v. had several channels but some of them didn't play very well, and the smoking room t.v. only had one viewable channel. Other than this, we had no complaints. The t.v.'s weren't really a problem, because we spent most of our time enjoying the Red River/Natural Bridge area. Also, this location has no pool, but if you want to swim, they give you a pass to their other hotel, Lil' Abner, which has a pool but is located about 12 miles away at Natural Bridge. We would highly recommend this motel to anyone staying in the area and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Nice little motel with big rooms. Ended up here because State Park lodge and Lil' Abners hotels at the next exit (10 miles) were full on the nights we needed them. This motel was VERY clean, smelled good and people were friendly in person and on the phone when we made reservations. We were very comfortable. We stayed in a newer unit with refrigerator, toaster, microwave and sink which was very handy. Restaurants at the exit were just fast food no little diners or anything. Grocery store nearby. Visited Natural Bridge State Park and Torrent Falls Climbing Adventure while we stayed here. Would HIGHLY recommend Torrent Falls Climbing Adventure our whole family loved it.

While visiting the Red River gorge area, we stayed 2 nights at Abner's in Stanton, the beginning of the scenic driving tour of this area. We had a queen bed, mini fridge, microwave, telephone, Dish tv, free wireless internet, (coffee in the office),. for $55 per night. The room was comfortable, very clean, and the staff friendly. Would absolutely stay again. If you have kids and NEED a pool, try Lil' Abner' Motel right down the road in Slade, KY.

I stayed at the Abner Motel for three nights this past October of 2009. The motel was very clean and has been kept up and updated throughout the years. Our room had a nice size refrigerator. Free wireless internet was included. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rates were reasonable.
