Good, average motel. Room was in good order and comfortable. Motel had very good free wifi (excellent strength and speed). We had some issues when we checked in when we were given a room that wasn't made up but this was sorted very quickly and we were given a new room. Staff were friendly and helpful.

I don't know why but the elderly lady at the desk told us that she did not have any rooms available. There were no automobiles in the parking lot. We politely left but felt disappointed as we would has to keep driving. I feel they had rooms but for some reason the person at the desk did not choose to...

I apologize if you felt we refused service to you. We do have several rooms out of order. Also, we have mostly contractors who stay 4-5 nights at a time per week and they had not returned from work. It would be a loss for my Inn to refuse to rent to guests so why would we do that??? The...

We stopped to stay the night coming from Chicago to our home. The hotel looked very shady when we pulled up. I was going to check in, but you couldn't go into the lobby because it after midnight. I had to check in through a small window. I finally was checked in and went to the room. I went to...

When we arrived, the door to our room was standing open, the lights were on and it looked like someone had been laying on the bed with the tv remote. But we were tired and the room was superficially clean so we took it. All the furnishings were worn, stained and rather gross. Parking lot was full of low-life bangers...

The rooms here were very nice, as was the staff. The beds, especially the pillows, were super comfortable. Even the showers had great water pressure! Staff was really awesome and gave ideas on where to have a meal off the beaten path. Super easy to access off the interstate.

My partner and I were on our way to Prestonsburg, KY, to visit my sister and her family. We had been driving for about 12 hours when we arrived into the outskirts of Louisville, KY.

This is a terrible hotel. Room we stayed in was in terrible shape. Room was way over priced. I'm pretty sure they took advantage of the snow storm we were driving in to gouge the price of the rooms. Gives red roof in a bad name, we will never again entertain the idea of even staying at another red roof...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts...I sincerely apologize for the terrible experience you had at my Inn. I am working closely with housekeeping to clean rooms better. I know my Inn is old and we are renovating rooms in phases. We did not raise the rates due to weather. The rates are higher due to demand in our area. Please...
