“Charming Historic Building in Good Location”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

You can easily walk to all the wonderful shops and restaurants in the old historic part of town from here. We road the Katy Trail and stayed here our last night. The trail is just down the hill, as is the Lewis and Clark Boathouse and Nature Center and Frontier Park.

The building itself is great if you love staying in historic places. The dining area is decorated well and breakfast was delicious. If you are just looking for a modern hotel, this isn't it, but we liked the character of the place.

The only reason I didn't say GREAT location is the noise. It is on a busy corner and they don't hide that when you make the reservations, but the noise tapered off around 11 p.m. (Friday night) and we slept well - until the brewery restaurant across the street decided to power wash at 6:15 a.m. Surely, that doesn't happen all the time, though.

We stayed in room #5 - very cute, great bed/mattress/linens, a decent shower and antique marble sink in the bedroom. Bathroom wasn't fancy, but was fine. Coffee pot and fixings provided as well as a small flat screen tv and they give you access to the fridge and ice in the dining room.

Overall, very comfortable and charming (as long as you are aware of the noise and willing to overlook that - maybe earplugs?)

Additional note - Hendrick's BBQ two blocks up the street has terrific food.

The Inn was at the end of main street across from the Trailhead Brewery. Very old home and we chose the loft for the king size bed. Had no idea we'd be so tired after 40 miles of biking on the trail so the 2 sets of steps was narrow and exhausting. Nothing wrong with this, we chose it and still enjoyed the stay. Very rustic, creaky bed, cracks between the floorboards kind of home. We were surprised there was no bottle of water, soda or snack to greet us like all other B & Bs we've been to. Hospitality I've come to expect of B & Bs, my bad. Breakfast was delicious but as we and the others at the table were talking it sounds like some of the items came from church bake sales and such. Linda was very accomodating and helpful. We enjoyed her conversation and helpfullness. Never met the owners which is another thing we've come to experience with B & Bs the owners are usually around. Thought the price of $195 was steep so my rating on value is low because of price but not accomodations.

Charming old refurbished historic building decorated with antiques. If you like the charm of creaking floors, old building and simplicity, then you'll love this place! If you are into modern luxuries, then I'd look somewhere else. The rooms are exceptionally clean, the porches and patio needed attention. The breakfasts were wonderful! If you like a chatty, entertaining innkeeper, Linda is for you! If you like a quiet breakfast and a peaceful cup of coffee in the sitting room, you need to look else where. The beds are harder than what we are accustomed, If you like convenience of leaving your car parked and walking everywhere, great place. If you are a light sleeper and traffic at night bothers you, you might want to take a sound machine, ear plugs or go somewhere else. This is a wonderful place if it fits your personality!

Very nice place with excellent service! I had to check in early in order to drop off some things in my room before heading out on Main Street that morning. Although the staff wasn't set to arrive until later, they went out of their way to accommodate my needs and left a key for me in a dropbox so I could get in my room that morning. I highly recommend the Boone's Lick Trail Inn and will definitely be a repeat customer!

Enjoyed our stay at this charming Bed & Breakfast! We stayed in Room #3 which was cozy and comfortable, although the shower was a bit tight. Breakfast was delicious ~ from the Cheese-Stuffed French Toast with Strawberry Sauce, to the amazing Lemon Biscuits, to the Cottage Cheese which was Linda's Grandmother's recipe! Our stay was during Oktoberfest, so while it was a bit noisy, we were still able to get a good night's rest. We are looking forward to another visit!

This was our second stay at Boone's Lick. This time we stayed in a room on the second floor. It is a basic room, but clean. The weather was nice enough we were able to make use of the table on the verdana. It is on the corner of two busy streets, so if you are a light sleeper you may have trouble sleeping. We're not so we didn't have any trouble. We were the only guests the night we were there. The breakfast was good, nice and hot. The innkeeper is very friendly and full of information.
