This is a fantastic condo above The Tribeca restaurant in a beautiful restored building in the center of Paducah's historic district. As a group of seven ladies, we rented both floors which consist of three bedrooms, two kitchens and two living areas with a great outside deck. Plenty of room for all and we would definitely stay here again. Because... More

The rooms are unique and quite stunning, very comfortable, and very reasonably priced. Near restaurants- all within a few blocks walking distance, it also adjoins a very cool bar with live entertainment. Loved the place... More

This place is awesome! We ended up staying 2x (once in June and once in July) and our son and his pregnant wife 1x during 2 trips to North Carolina! My pregnant daughter-in-law loved the room with the soaking tub!!! The inn keepers are SO friendly and so accommodating with special requests. What a stopping point for a 20 hour... More

We had planned this trip since May and were unfortunately not able to stay the night. Paul was very understanding and we left without complaint. Hope to be able to return one day as the rooms seemed spacious and beautiful.

With the renovation and opening of this unique property; you can enjoy even more convenience and culture of downtown Paducah. The building is old but the conversion from "Old" to "New" is very well done. This is the perfect venue for your private celebration/party . Lots of room for band, dancing and mingling and the bar is most attractive. You... More

I stayed here for 1 night while in Paducah for business. The hotel was great. The room was VERY spacious and had a comfortable bed. The hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have a nice bar area that is well stocked.
