First of all, every staff member was extremely friendly and helpful. They were great! The rooms were simple, but clean and inviting. You can tell the owners care about cleanliness. There were a few touches that really stood out like the table, cozy wallpaper, hair dryer/ironing board and the good shampoo. It's the little things that make a big difference....

We stayed a night in late December. The room was clean and beds average. However, there was no hot water! I tried to get a rate reduction, and was told to call the manager. I called the hotel three times, and the manager never called back.

We traveled from Las Vegas, NV (by way of Greenville SC) to visit the Ark. We needed a place for multiple families that was close to the Ark. Sunrise Inn was PERFECT! Really close to the Ark (we walked and didn't have to pay to park; after a recommendation from the front desk staff), room was clean and the new...

The Sunrise Inn staff went out of their way to help us check in early, make us feel welcome and make sure we enjoyed our stay. We were a church group with 9 rooms and it was a very pleasant experience. They worked hard for us all to have a full breakfast and overall, we were incredibly happy. The rooms...

We visited the Ark across the road and stayed at the Sunrise Inn, very convenient. Sunrise is a little older but very clean. Wonderful staff; knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend this motel while visiting all Kentucky has to offer.
