We stayed here on a night that turned into a blizzard, we couldn't get out, but the Bistro was awesome and the staff were very courteous. The room was very clean and very comfortable. Will definitely stay again.

Thank you Richard for leaving such wonderful comments and praise of our Ramada @ the KY Speedway. That snow storm was quite a time- wasn't it? I am pleased that the staff was able to accommodate you and that the Bistro was able to feed you too. We look forward to seeing you again- rain, snow or shine! Thank you again for taking the time to let others know of your experiences with us. Jeff H/GM

On etering my room I was greeted with a layer of dust on everything. There was scraps of paper, and change (money) on the floor - I assume from the previous guest. The room was also freezing - the heat was turned completely off and it was almost as cold as the temps outside. At least the bathroom was clean and the room was odor free.

The gym was falling apart: the gears on the bike were so rusty the carpet was stained with rust; the elipical did not work, if you moved the arm pieces they came off the body of the equipment; and the treadmill could not maintain a consistant speed.

I drove up the driveway behind the gas station to the hotel, being careful not to slip on the ice in the parking lot, entered the lobby and meet the front desk clerk. She was very nice, easy to talk to, and offered advice. Upon entering my room, everything looked, smell nice and was clean. The heater worked great, blinds covered the windows, bathroom was very clean, and the usual complimentary shampoo, conditioner, and lotion was better than most. There's a bar in the lobby stocked with a attendant and the morning breakfast was nice.

If you're looking for a hotel near the Kentucky Speedway or Belterra, I'd recommend this one.

Oh...they had a very nice enclosed pool.
