The staff was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and the hotel was nice. It’s an old hotel but has been nicely upgraded.

It was very clean, the matresses were very comfortable. We liked the separate building for the complementary breakfast. The bathroom was too small and the shower head not tall enough fir my 6 ft height..

The property was convenient to downtown Bardstown. Nice property with a clean pool. Nice breakfast served in a separate carriage house. Enjoyed outdoors seating areas.

Facility was quaint and delightful. Families were grilling and swimming. Staff was polite and room appears to be recently updated. I would stay here again if passed back through.

The only "good thing" about the stay was the breakfast and the staff in the breakfast area. The room smelled and it was very loud. I would not recommend it to anyone, but there isn't any other places to stay near downtown area except very old Jailers Inn and Talbott Inn. Not my style. I hate to drive all the way back out to Hampton but it is the only "nice" hotel close enough to uber/taxi.

Bardstown, Ky

Pros: Convenience to attractions.
Cons: Room air was stale, just needed a good airing.
Location: My old Ky Home state park, Stephen Foster story just a short way down the road. Decent restaurant next door.
The room was clean with the exception that it needed airing out. Breakfast area was next to pool and was clean, food was hot. I would stay again. Staff was pleasant.
