No it isn’t a national chain and exterior is a little dated, but you will not find a cleaner room anywhere. Fridge, microwave, free internet and an extremely comfortable bed. Walking distance to the downtown square!

This little gem is located within blocks of downtown Bardstown and central to many distilleries. The price was very good. Rooms are clean, comfortable bed, coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Important to note that I have a "thing" for old, one-off motels and have long wanted to stay in a place like this but never seem to have an opportunity. This review is based on the expectation that I would be staying in one of those place and NOT in some huge corporate chain motel. If you want to stay in a room like you'll find at a Holiday Inn Express or Fairfield Inn, etc., read no further and keep driving. But, if you're looking for a trip into the past where motels were run by the owners and you can park in front of your own clean, comfortable room and use a real key to open the door, then you'll love this place. From what I could tell, the only thing missing was the paper strip across the toilet seat that says "Sanitized for Your Protection." And, it was all real - not decorated to simulate an old, roadside motel for your nostalgia experience. An actual old, road-side motel. Late check-in does require summoning the desk manager by ringing a bell outside the office, but the manager showed up quickly and got us checked in without any glitches or delays. (Which was good because it was a little cool outside for my taste.) He handed us our room KEYS (yes, actual keys on those old elongated diamond-shaped key rings with your room number on them!) and told us the direction to our rooms. We had three rooms. Not much else to say except that all three rooms were clean and comfortable with updated climate control and flat screen TVs (so not 100% authentic, but good luck finding an old tube TV that still works). And, this motel is in the heart of Bardstown so every convenient to everything in the area. I do not recall seeing a guest laundry or ice machine - we were only there for one night, but those may have been tucked away down the hall next to the office where the vending machines were located. No breakfast. In fact, there's no food service on the premises, but there is a restaurant right across the street. This motel is not for everybody (which is good because I hate it when I place that I like gets over-run) but if you're looking for an old-fashioned motel which is still reputable and clean, this is for you.

Booked this online because we are traveling for the holidays with our cat we didn’t want to leave home alone. It reads on internet they are pet friendly but when we arrived to check in they only allow dogs so they canceled our reservation when I told them we had a cat! So be aware, it’s our first trip with an animal and I won’t make this mistake again, we are now staying at Hamilton,much nicer room and $50 pet fee but they have us a discount on our room plus a free breakfast. I will stay at Hampton Hotels from now on.
