My husband and I were doing the bourbon trail and wanted to stay in Bardstown for 2 nights (had stayed in Versailles for 2 as well). The Talbott Inn needs some serious updating, while still maintaining its historical roots. Fortunately, we were there mid-week so weren't bothered by the bar music. Our room, the Washington Irving Suite, is worn and needs a good cleaning. The bedroom is very small, no closet or armoire to hang clothing. The only hooks are behind the front door. The bathroom needs a good scrubbing. Breakfast is the same each morning: a selection of cereal and scrambled eggs. But the location is very central and easy to get in and out of town. The Visitors' Center is across the street and the people there are extremely helpful and accommodating. Don't waste your money on the Talbott, find another place to stay.
