The question in the header is serious - how can anybody in their right mind give this hotel even an average review?
We were there on the last weekend of October 2009, two couples, for one night. We thought "well let's go for something other than the usual chains (they have a Days Inn in Bardstown)". WRONG.
Rooms were last updated - NEVER. All furniture, appliances (oh yes, b/c we had a "suite"...), carpets, etc were from the early 1960's, approximately. Everything was old and had a very bad smell to it. To tell you the truth three of us were so disgusted by the bathroom (equally old and raggedy) that we skipped the morning shower altogether... The so-called continental breakfast consisted of toast, cheerios, coffee, milk (which would be borderline acceptable), all served in one of the rooms turned into a "breakfast room". The fridges were all completely unsanitary. You guessed, we skipped "breakfast" as well.
Why am I giving it even 2 stars? First, the price was decent ($48 per room) and second the lady operating it was nice. But that is not enough. This place needs to be entirely rehabbed and gutted before you can call it a motel!
