“Great value and convience”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

We recently stayed at this hotel while in town visiting family during the holidays. Room was clean and fairly sizable. I am not one to complain much about hotels but do have a few complaints here. The breakfast was not much to talk about. 2 types of cereal, milk, juice and Little Debbie type honey buns and donut sticks. Onion flavor bagel and raisin bread were the only options for bread. Banana for fruit. They no longer have "make your own waffles" which I was looking for. I was disappointed with the breakfast as this is my favorite meal of the day. There are no irons or ironing boards in the rooms or laundry area. They do have one washer and dryer guest can pay and use. I think there living quarters for staff were above our room where a lot of heavy walkers were. I think maybe kids were up there running in the room as well. All in all it was a good value, clean and convienent location, much better than staying with the in-laws !! We like our privacy and own bath when we travel. We would stay here again in the future and recommend it for a good place to sleep. Waffle House is in walking distance, across the street is McDonalds and Arby's, Hardee's is within a few miles all where you can get a good breakfast. We have stayed at all the top 5 hotels in Shelbyville through the years and this one was okay. Cracker Barrel restaurant is off the next exit going east towards Frankfort, KY (approx. 3 miles for hotel.)

Room Tip: I would suggest staying on the top floor so you do not have people walking above you all the time...

Wanting to go through Louisville on our way home from Savannah, we opted to lay over in Shelbyville one evening. We found this little gem, the Country Hearth Inn. The location is great, just a skip from I-64 and mere feet from a Waffle House. The gentleman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful, both when we checked in and when we checked out. The room was clean and comfortable, if a little small, and the price was as good as it gets in the area. We did miss breakfast, but it didn't look like we missed much. Coffee and donuts were still up, though, so we grabbed some for the road--other reviewers are right, good coffee. Highly recommended. As good as you can do in this price range.

Room Tip: Always stop at a gas station or rest area and get a hotel coupon book. Makes cheap cheaper in a hur...

Room was very clean and a good value. Sleep quality was so-so for 2 reasons: plastic mattress liners and thin walls.

The highest quality hotel for the lowest price. Staff very helpful and friendly, Rooms appear to be new and well maintained. Just off the highway - but just far enough for sleeping in silence. I have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and the world ... this place is definately worth every penny ... NAMASTE.

Reviewed 29 September 2009

The hotel was clean and rooms were reasonably furnished for an overnight stay. The bed was a little too firm for my taste and obviously not the best quality. Management is friendly and very helpful. The best part of the stay is the breakfast in the morning. "Make your own" waffles, good coffee and juice among other things on the continental breakfast menu. WiFi worked but then we weren't far from the front desk either.

Overall, a good hotel if you want to save a few bucks.
