    « Is a gem -- much better than even expected »

    Although on some sites the overall average of reviews put it just above average, we decided to try this place based on the positive recent reviews. And we were very pleasantly surprised for our one-night stay between Keeneland and Claiborne Farm. Check-in on late Saturday afternoon was easy. When we opened the door to our room were were very pleased -- it appears the place has been revamped since we were here years ago. Not only was it spotless, everything in the room including decor was very updated, with nice high beds, plenty of fluffy pillows plus large mini-fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, lots of outlets and plenty of towels. Heat/AC unit worked great, good TV and lots of channels and location was quiet but near shopping/eating. Definitely will stay here again!!!

    « Paris, KY »

    While in Paris we got to visit the old court house (the courtroom reminded us of the movie To Kill a Mockingbird). Just outside town we discovered an old Covered Bridge. And last but not least, we stopped by the Farmers Market. Met some wonderful towns people. They were very friendly and cordial. Got to taste plenty of delicious foods and took some goodies back home with us. Plenty of horse farms to visit, the burial spot for the great race horse Secretariat is there as well.

    « Clean, comfortable and quiet »

    We spent six nights here. We requested a ground floor room and had a room that we could drive right up to the door. Very convenient. Our room, the breakfast room and front office were very clean and comfortable. The staff was always courteous and friendly. We would definitely come back.

    « Secretariat Festival »

    This was a nice hotel. Convenient for our stay. Close to the downtown area. Staff was very nice and helpful in giving us directions for the festival. Breakfast ok, but not great. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

    « Perfect overnight stay »

    We stayed at the Best Western Paris Inn as a stop over on the way to Dallas. It was a great resting spot. After a little confusion about our room, the woman at the front desk ( I am so sorry, I didn't catch your name) helped settle us in. She was fantastic , really the heart of he operation! We unloaded the car and drove a quick 20 minutes to Lexington for dinner. Easy ride back. It's in a safe area and you can not beat the price. We continued on our journey after a hearty, delicious breakfast at the hotel. The food was hot , the area was clean , and the attendant was super friendly and helpful. Thanks for having us!

    « Don't bother spending time here »

    We stayed one night. The room smelled like heavy odor spray was sprayed to cover up something. The carpeting is very old, the shower nozzle was too high to reach, the shower curtain wouldn't close & seemed very old & appeared not to be clean. The clerk who checked us in was honest, thankfully, that the,eggs at breakfast were not real, so we did not have breakfast there. The coffee was not very good. Overall, very disappointing stay. Usually B W is much better than this one was.

    « Great Exoerience »

    The gal who checked us in was very cheerful and accommodating. It was late and we were road weary from motorcycles and it was a very appreciated. I didn't catch her name but she gets a gold star in our book. There was a problem with our reservation (my fault) and she was very help getting it squared away.

    « Functional, Clean and Optimally Located. »

    Easy to get to and from. Rooms are clean and well furnished. I'm a stickler about hotels never having good pillows. Theirs are probably the most comfortable I've ever encountered. A bit pricey until you factor in their included breakfast which is a lot more than your typical motel continental breakfast. Scrambled eggs, meats, make your own waffles, etc.

    « Clean, comfortable and great price »

    Stayed there last night and had a very clean room, bed was comfortable. Breakfast was sausage, eggs, biscuits,gravy, cereal, juice, granola, coffee, tea,and more Staff was very helpful, friendly, and nearly dressed.

    Clean, comfortable and affordable. There is no elevator so if you need first floor be sure to let them know when you make your reservation. The bathroom was kinda small but would stay again if in the area.

    « Very nice »

    Came down for a last minute trip. Check in was quick and pleasant. Clerk was proactive in asking me about AAA discount. Rooms were clean, pool area was nice. Awesome diner right across the street. The only other thing I could have asked for was that the A/C be turned on prior to check in.

    « Will stay again »

    We have stayed here before and will no doubt stay again. The staff is so friendly and nice. Marilyn, at the front desk, was a pleasure to talk to and Paul, the maintenance guy, was very nice and quick to take care of a problem we encountered. The ladies that took care of the breakfast area were great. It is very convenient for us when we are visiting family.

    « Surprisingly enjoyable »

    We were traveling all "back roads" to give our grand daughters an experience. This was an added bonus to the trip because we felt so welcomed and relaxed here. The hotel was quiet, clean and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Only hotel in town »

    Paris, Ky is just east of Lexington. Since we were traveling further east the next day it looked like a great place to stop. This is the only hotel which was very good. Clean and helpful staff. We found a list of eating places downtown in the lobby. Very quaint downtown. An annual car show was going on. Not crowded at all. Very good value. It's not on the main road so you can pass it up.

    « A short stay for the Bourbon Derby Half Marathon »

    Very clean room. We only stayed one night, as we were in town for the half marathon. Marilyn at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. She allowed us to have late check out so we could shower after our race which we were soooo thankful for!! The building was in good shape, and only 5 minutes from our race. No complaints!

    « helpful, accommodating staff »

    In town for a half marathon. We picked this hotel because it was close to the start line. It was very clean and comfortable. Marilyn at the front desk is awesome and so helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Mom's vacation of a life time »

    Marilyn and staff were the friendliest and most helpful. Probably the best experience I have had with a motel. Very grateful to them. They made my moms vacation a dream come to. The town of Paris and people there were very friendly and helpful. I can not say enough about the experience we had. It was simply awesome!!

    « Paris Ky Hotel Stay »

    The hotel was almost hidden, but once you found the entrance, it was ok. The wife was surprised that she had a good clean room. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was ok, not much variety and the eggs were runny.

    « Fun for family »

    The front desk lady Marilyn is very helpful an accommodating. Ms. Marilyn, help us booked reservations at Claiborne Farms, a Very delightful lady.The blonde lady in breakfast was very sweet an informative about the events in the surrounding area. The breakfast area was very clean and well taken care of so many options. Really enjoyed the chocolate chip waffles. We really appreciated, the hospitality of this hotel. The staff go out of their way to help you with all your needs.The room was extremely comfortable, very clean and bright would recommend this to friends and family an everyone.

    « Stayed for the Rolex »

    Although an older style hotel on the outside, the inside was totally redone and comfortable. The friendly staff was helpful and breakfast was good. Location was convenient to shopping, food and Kentucky Horse Park. Recommend requesting a first floor if you are unable to do stairs while carrying your luggage. Overall, for the price we were happy.

    « Accomodating »

    The front desk was very polite and went out of the way when checking in and out. Good breakfast choices. Room was clean and neat Sheets and pillows and mattress were comfortable.Cant say the same for other hotels we stayed at.

    « For the hotel snob in you... »

    I have to say that our family usually stays in hotels. But we were very pleasantly surprised by this Best Western. It is a Hotel/motel combo, so they have both interior and exterior entry rooms. Rooms were very clean and nice! Only 15 mi. from Horse Park, but it does take about 20-25 mins to get there and the drive is beautiful! The rooms were very nice! Only improvement I would like to see are security key entrances on the Hotel section. Anyone can come and go as they please w/o any security key required. Pillows are a little too fluffy for my preference. Overall, we'll be looking up Best Westerns from now on! Great value for the price!

    « no sleep »

    Not only was the bed extremely hard, there is no noise insolation. We heard every conversation in anointing rooms, and hallways as if they were in our room. when the people above us walked is sounded like the roof was going to came down. worst nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel.

    « In town for softball game. »

    Our daughter was playing in a softball tournament in the area. We have stayed at this Best Western hotel before. The rooms were clean and service was good. We were only there for one night. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions. We had no problems during our stay and would not hesitate to stay at this Best Western again.

    « Good choice »

    Clean and conveniently located. Room was adequate for my needs. There were not enough covers on the bed for my taste but, I turned the heater up which compensated for it. Also, the bathroom heater did not work and if the door stays closed it gets cold in the bathroom.

    « They went out of their way for us »

    We dropped off horses at a couple of the local farms and needed an overnight stay before heading back home. Checked in at the BW and they were expecting us. The sign in the lobby say's breakfast starts at 6am. We told the clerk we hoped to be on the road at 6 so he asked what time we would be checking out and I said 5:30am. He said he'd leave a note for the night shift and ask them to have breakfast set up a little early, maybe just coffee and pastries. We were in the lobby at 5:30am and she had the full breakfast buffet set up for us. She could not have been nicer. We had a choice of eggs, waffels, cereals etc. All the usual. Coffee was hot, hot water for Jean's tea (extra points for offering Lipton tea. Many places now only offer "specialty" teas which is not her cup of tea if you know what I mean). A good nights sleep in a comfortable bed, a hot shower (The tub is a very slow drainer hence I only rated this "very good") and best of all the early breakfast was ready to go. They may be the only place in town but they don't take customers for granted. I'll be back.

    « impressive for a small town best western »

    Breakfast was decent, good coffee. The rooms were cozy and loved the list of channels and TV guide that was available. I also loved the "clean TV remote". Overall, one of the better best westerns I've been to

    « Warm, comfortable, clean..... »

    But the walls between rooms in our wing, Room 128, are paper thin. The thinnest in 13 hotels in the 17 nights of our east coast US road trip so far. We could hear the discussion going on next door. Otherwise very happy with the hotel. Front desk service was very helpful.

    « Another wonderful visit at Best Western, Paris Inn »

    I've been here many times before, but this time I feel like it was exceptional. Whitney at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. We were there over Thanksgiving and she called me at home before our arrival to give me Thanksgiving dinner options, then made the reservation for us. Marilyn at the desk was also very nice and asking if we needed anything. Several people were being trained and I could see the care that was being taken. The room was clean. The breakfast was fine. Everyone was friendly. Great trip to Paris!

    Courteous helpful staff upon check in, recommending places to eat dinner. Excellent accommodations. Great breakfast variety. Hot items were hot and cold items were cold. We would go here again if in the area. Many restaurants and amenities close by also.

    « Phil Warner experience »

    Thanks for the great experience at your hotel, great staff, helpful, friendly and prepared to assist in every way to make my stay comfortable. If possible, I think the breakfast could consider a healthier style of food. International travelers prefer fruit and natural products over highly processed products. Other than that it is a great place to stay.

    « Good Place to stay »

    In the heart of horse county this motel is outstanding with warm welcome and a good breakfast. Eggs, sausage, waffles and bisquits and gravy to mane a few breakfast items, This is in a off the normal interstate but close to Lexington. Nice and quite off the main roads. Very good place to rest up. Highly recommend this motel, great value for the money.

    « Super staff »

    This hotel is clean and comfy - the beds are great. But the staff really sets this apart from your normal Best Western. They were just plain friendly! Both day and evening shifts kept asking us if there was anything they could do for us, and when we had questions they went out of their way to make sure we got them answered. So my recommendation is if you are in the area, stay here.

    « Nice hotel »

    Stephanie at the front desk could not have been nicer or more helpful. She helped with directions and recommendations for dinner. Its an old hotel with the doors opening to the outside.The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Nice breakfast. More than just waffles and cereal. I would stay here again.

    « Very Impressed »

    While staying at the Best Western Paris Inn I had excellent service from the fr4ont desk and also from housekeeping. I would gladly stay there again. Very impressed with the value also. I have stayed at several Best Westerns and I would have to say this is one of the best!!

    « maintenance issues »

    The rear doors to the outside were left unlocked at night. The Lavatory drain linkage was found disconnected. There was a mildly unpleasant odor in the room. Although 200 characters are required for this review I don't have much to say. The highway sign identifying the hotel location was small and we overlooked it on first pass by, causing a detour of many miles before we circled back to this location, and the motel is not identifiable from the arterial road leading to its vicinity. I have found unlocked and unguarded doors a night to be a fairly common defect in our travels and always appreciate it when the lock mechanism works properly. Sink drains are often problematic, but this one was fixable and should have been addressed before our arrival

    « Once again, the BW Paris Inn does not disappoint! »

    This is my second year staying here for the Secretariat Festival. Yes it is a little older building although the one wing is fairly new but it is very neat & clean and the staff is just outstanding. I want to thank Kerry who went above & beyond to make sure I got the best location for me! I also wish to thank Lisa & Stephanie for being so darn nice and helpful. The breakfast is pretty good too. I just like staying here and it is convenient to everything including shopping & eating establishments. I will be back next year. Thank you.

    Nice clean room and friendly service. Very close to Secretariat Festival and Our Mims Retirement Haven, also has a real wooden covered Bridge down the road from the Haven. The drive to Paris, KY is breathtaking, Paris itself is a very beautiful place & Best Western is the best place to stay when visiting.

    « Very Pleasant Staff »

    Close to anything you need in the Paris, Kentucky area. And the staff if very help and friendly. We arrived very late around 1:00 in the morning and our room was waiting on us. The hotels show a little wear but so do many out there today. Wouldn't mind staying there again if needed.

    « Very Clean and great staff! »

    My family and I stayed here while visiting an area college the next morning. It was just a quickly planned decision to stay near the college rather than drive from home the next morning. This motel has recently been renovated and was very clean and comfortable not to mention quiet. Upon checking in we were met by Stephanie who started the experience off right with attention to detail and a friendly face. Our room was very comfortable with great water pressure and a shower head that was actually high enough to not have to stoop over. We had plenty of towels and our girls swam in the pool which was very clean with nice seating around it. The WIFI was also quite good and did reach to the pool area as well. The only thing that was bad about this property would have to be the breakfast, while providing a hot breakfast the food left much to be desired. The biscuits were hard and the sausage patties were greasy and seemed old, this along with the cool gravy over the biscuits made for a pretty bad start to the morning. All in all a good deal for the money but maybe plan for breakfast at the Huddle House across the street.
