Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an old (maybe very old?) property and some details do look very dated. But the owners have made every effort to spruce up, clean up, improve and paint. Decor is "old time farm country"--imaginative and clever. Extra-nice features-- a good-sized chest of drawers, a mini-kitchen area which included mini-fridge, microwave, small bar sink and small counter, and an adequate number of electric outlets--something many older properties lack. Everything was clean and comfortable. And the owner/managers were extremely nice and accommodating. Thank you!

We are reporting your review as false and defamatory to our business. We use professional services and have a well trained staff and we do Not have bed bugs. This was never reported to us even as a complaint and you bouncing around on the internet making false accusations is wrong!

This place was a smaller location but everything worked well. Check in lady was friendly. Rooms were clean and cute. Nice touch with the personal thank you card. Rare was reasonable. We stayed in a room with two doubles. Mattress were in the firm side…only a few miles from the ark encounter and maybe 15 minutes to a Walmart super center if things are needed.

Very dusty, dirty-will try to attach photos. Dead bugs, in windowsills. EXtremely rock hard mattress that is higher in feet than head. AND Bed flips up if you sit on the end (we are not big people). AWFUL TO SLEEP ON. We did not sleep even 15 min all night. Crummy nasty breakfast, and THEY take their time getting you ONE cup of coffee from behind the counter. Staff Told my handicapped friend to get her own creamer when she nicely asked if there was any.. Dry old bagels, dried up hard oranges,in a bowl with a black banana, no drinks offered for breakfast at all. We had to ask multiple times for ONE coffee.. ZERO protein-all crappy low quality junk food carbs. Doughnuts are prebought tiny packages (like from gas station). Old musty smell in room. Heater is not adjustable and AC utterly FILTHY,so no way would you want to risk Legionairres disease! Swamp is behind hotel. Codes to doors were wrong, door has daylight and truck highway noise constantly coming in. VERY SLOW staff who do not seem to know what theyre doing except to take your money. Wrong rooms and codes took TWENTY minutes after a very long trip I reserved, paid for the room myself but they gave a note to my husband that said his name & "GUEST" ( talk about offensive and super dumb!!) And thanked him for getting a room with his GUEST. (Really???!!??) Asked if they had a mattress pad or extra blanket to put on the hard mattresss-she said take the dusty decorative hanging off the wall to use!!(nope). Microwave is all eaten up with rust inside-CANNOT BE SAFE TO USE. fridge is barely cold at all and leaking something gross in the inside. FIND A DIFFERENT PLACE, THIS WAS TERRIBLE!!!!!!

I'm going to address future visitors in this comment section, and ask that you look at our reviews as a whole. We are an older well maintained property, think of us a Route 66 style motel. We use the term " and guest" when writing welcome cards as we are not presumptuous as to know who else is staying in the room with the person who booked. Is it a friend? A relative? A sister? A brother? We have no idea who the plus 1 is! There is no " swamp" behind the hotel. Here in a Kentucky we call it a " pond" and all the woodland creatures use the pond as a drinking hole. You may see some! The heaters do adjust by turning the knob. The refrigerator have thermostats you can adjust up and down as well to your preference. The decorative hanging is also know here in Kentucky as a "quilt" very popular in our area and is washed between uses. Our mattresses are Sealy, and we realize guests have different preference, unfortunately we cannot accommodate every preference and have perfectly medium softened bed which accommodates most customers. The rest .. we will look into and fix. Our FREE Continental breakfast includes: coffee, apple and orange juice. Hot tea, hot chocolate, a bagel and toast station, a variety of cereals, packaged oatmeal's, donuts and muffins, fresh whole fruits. If you have an issue with any food quality, please let us know while you are there... instead of waiting to rant anonymously on the internet, so we can fix it for you. If you desire a full hot breakfast, the truck stop down the street is open early and is reasonably priced. With us you get an affordable stay.. and our goal is clean. Comfortable and friendly! Dawn

Staff I met was extremely nice. Room was clean but could use some updates. Beds & pillows comfy, television small, room was able to maintain a steady temperature not dropping way down then shooting the other way. Pay attention to signage to location of the office-signage is deceptive IMO

We stayed at this small motel because we went to the ARK Encounter in Williamstown, KY. where there are few places to stay. So, we thought we'd take a chance. Great gamble. While the rooms are small, they are clean, have a small kitchenette, nice firm mattresses, good towels and sheets, and plenty of hot water. When we checked in, there was 2 bottles of water, 2 energy bars and a personalized, handwritten note thanking us for our patronage. When was the last time you got that? Check in was a breeze. they also offer a simple continental breakfast, but since we let in the very wee hours of the morning, we were unable to partake so I can't comment on it. Nothing fancy here but a great choice for a one or two nighter.

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights. The location was a central point for us as we visited both the Ark Encounter and the creation museum. The room was comfortable, clean and quite affordable compared to chain hotels in neighboring cities. The staff and guests were all very friendly. Overall it was an enjoyable stay:-)

Everyone we met for a two night stay were super friendly! We had a continental breakfast with bagels and toast along with some fresh fruit. The girl was always there to provide coffee and hot water. If you want a full breakfast you will have to search elsewhere. There are upper and lower rooms. We had the lower rooms. Our room was a little bit damp but not too bad. Our bed was too close to the air conditioner. It’s a little hard to sleep with cold air blowing on your back! I hung a towel in front of the blower which diffused the airflow. The rooms were quite clean and the bedding was clean and comfortable.
