    « Not the best experience »

    Noise from the air conditioner and the toilet prevented us from getting a good night's sleep. To be fair, we did not notify the staff until the following morning due to the late hour and the fact that we were so tired.

    « Smoke Smell »

    Stayed in smoking room. I do not smoke but my wife does. I understand their will be some smell of smoke however, I believe the smoke smell could be removed better. Smell was very strong as soon as hallway door was opened.

    We brought a school group of fifth and sixth graders. The receptionist as well as every worker we encountered was superior! Beds were comfy and clean. Breakfast was great! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    « Wonderful stay »

    Wonderful and attentive staff. Very clean hotel and very comfortable beds. Will stay here every time we travel through. Had one issue, excessive noise from room above us. The management attended to the situation immediately and made us whole on our bill. The breakfast was great and the staff kept the room tidy and replenished the items regularly. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who is staying over in Shelbyville, KY.

    « Nice hotel in Shelbyville »

    This is a nice hotel located near the interstate but not right next to it. We stayed in a non smoking suite which was very clean and spacious. Because smoking is allowed in some rooms and areas of the hotel, you can smell the odor or people smoking.

    « everything was great »

    i stayed 2 nights Saturday night til Monday morning. i stayed by myself and it was nice , you can barely hear anything through the walls, the cleaning ladies always had a smile on their face and are willing to do just about anything you ask, and i got checked in within minutes and checked out within seconds. For the county it is the best and cheapest hotel you could go to . lastly front desk takes care of you and makes sure you make the most out of your stay. 04/17/2018

    « Nice hotel for the price »

    My daughter was asked to fill in for a volleyball tourney going on in Louisville. Because we were asked last minute, there wasn't any good options close to the venue. While searching for nearby I found a great deal on the Best Western in Shelbyville. It was about a 25 minute drive to the venue, so not too bad. When we arrived at the hotel, the woman working the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We had requested a non smoking room, and while that is what we got, the room had been smoked in previously. Not a huge deal as it wasn't too bad, but it might be a big deal for someone else. The room size was good. The only negative of the room was we never had hot water. Warm, enough for maybe one quick shower, but that was it. The breakfast was better than I expected. A lot of different choices. Overall the hotel, and staff were great. I would book there again.

    « Blood on the mattress covers »

    I booked my room through Expedia and when I was checking in I was told that they had booked me in a smoking room because they were completely sold ou. I didn't complain because that was expedia's fault. When I got to the room the room smelled like an ash tray and I looked around to make sure there were no bed bugs because it didn't look super clean. When I pulled the sheets up, the mattress cover had blood stains all on the side and they were very obvious. The staff were very nice and they got me new fitted sheet and febreeze, but that doesn't change the fact that I was so grossed out I had to go get pillows and blankets because I didn't feel safe sleeping on the ones that were on the bed. It was not worth $120 a night and it was the worse hotel I have ever stayed at.

    « It was just ok. »

    The room was clean. That's about all I have to say positive about the place. The hotel needs rehab. My key wouldn't work every time I went back to the hotel. They did have free dinner on Tuesday nights which was a plus. Just an ok place to stay.

    I was pleased with the cleanliness and quiet atmosphere of this hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the popcorn and coffee in the lobby was appreciated. The girl and the front desk was polite and friendly. We will definitely stay at this Best Western the next time we pass through this area.

    « BED BUGS!!! »

    My reservation, I specifically asked for Non-smoking; they gave me smoking room, told me that's all they had so I had no choice but to deal with it. Woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, came back and the room was a little warm so turned the TV on and grabbed my laptop. Few minutes later, visitors came crawling toward me from under the covers! At 2:00 am, I packed everything up and checked out!! I had to miss my conference, the sole purpose of my visit there. Now back home, I'm having to combat my house and car and have had to toss out several personal items I didn't want to risk bringing in the house! The guy on duty didn't seem to act like he believed me when I told him and showed him a picture (My company will foot the bill so not like I was looking for a handout.). Well hopefully the bed bugs were still running amuck when he went to check the room out and that I didn't bring them all home with me. For me, short visit will turn into a long-term problem! Also, extremely poor lighting in the room...I guess they don't want you to see the buggies!

    « Best Western don't stay at this one in Shelbyville KY »

    Don't stay here. Very dirty.Pictures of rooms are deceiving. Mold in tubs. Dust all over floor. Under beds well don't look they are disgusting. They don't leave clean towels you have to go get your own. Lamps without light bulbs. Sheets was inside out on beds. Makes you wonder if they was even changed.

    « Surprised »

    We needed a pet friendly hotel on our route home from Nashville to Rochester NY. Haven't stayed at a Best Western before but it seems like they are improving; based on what we noticed of new construction on our route. Pics looked good. Reasonable pet charge $20. We were surprised by overall experience. Very presentable exterior. Lobby very nice. Receptionist at desk very welcoming. Room large, clean and comfortable. Bed was kinda soft, but we are used to a Tempurpedic, so, we're spoiled. Parking lot was busy but no sounds from other rooms.Good shower, lots of pressure and hot water. Would stay again.

    we were passing through and stayed a night at this hotel and the only real problem was the bathroom was not clean as the floor was was very dirty! Otherwise it was ok for a night. We really stayed one night going to and another night on the way back and would have let the first night bathroom issue go but we had the same issue with a non clean bathroom the second stay.

    « Not Like The Pictures »

    The reviews for this Lodge were extremely good. Not sure where these people stayed but the rooms were not as described. Very disappointed for the price. We were there overnight to go to a funeral and thankful we only had to stay one night. The room was clean but the lamp between the beds was a fire hazard. The lampshade was loose so you couldn't make it stay in place. It also had a small burn hole where the shade must have been laying on the bulb. That was the good part of this review. . . the bathroom was a disgrace. When you closed the bathroom door there were black handprints on the back of the door. Corners of the room were filthy and when I went to use the dryer it had long black hairs on the handle. The only good thing about the Lodge were the employees who were very courteous. Also the breakfast room was very nice and had many breakfast items to choose from. Would not recommend this Lodge for those reasons.

    I really get up set when I can't pay cash. At other Best Western we stayed at we paid when we checked in. You have all our info. The clerk wanted to put the charge on our card until we paid and wouldn't let us pay until the next morning. I was not happy

    « Great! »

    After having a difficult time finding a hotel room we finally stumbled across Best Western. It was pouring rain last night, my father-in-law was on a motorcycle, and we were exhausted. Camden was the young gentleman at the desk when we arrived after 1am, he offered to get us anything we needed and was extraordinarily polite. I highly recommend this hotel. Clean room, comfortable beds, and the breakfast was great! Definitely worth the money.

    « Clean, comfortable hotel »

    « Nice stop »

    We decided to stop here on our way to Gatlinburg. Check-in was simple, and the desk person was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, but the entrance to the hotel was the congregation area for smokers...and it stunk. The breakfast area is nice and clean and has plenty of choices. We will probably book again on our way home, just hold our breath on our way in! PS: Arbys is right next door.

    If you are looking for a nice, clean, spacious hotel room with nice amenities, look no farther. This is a great hotel at a great price. Staff is friendly and check-in/check-out was a breeze. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're in the vicinity of Louisville/Shelbyville/Simpsonville/Frankfort.

    « Old hotel »

    The room was old and didn't smell fresh. The sheets of the bed were old and didn't feel fresh. What made it worse that it were 2 sheets with an old thin blanket in between. And there was no extra blanket so it was cold. The room had a chouch and a chair, the last one had a lot of stains on it. The bathroom was clean but needed it an update, again it looked old. One positiv thing was breakfast, there was a good choice.

    « Oh the beds »

    After 10 days on the road in pretty much a different hotel every night, this is hands down the most comfortable bed of this trip. Front desk staff was very nice and helpful, even moving my room so I could be close to the guest laundry as I needed to do some. The room was clean, the bathroom also very clean, and good water pressure and temperature. My only complaint is that sound from the pool carried to my room, but having a room near the pool was the price to be paid for being near the laundry. I recommend this hotel and will stay again if work brings me back through.

    « Great hotel, suite was very nice »

    Stayed there the night before the solar eclipse, hotel was full so I upgraded to the suite, was nice a roomy with a western flavor. Had a nice sitting area with comfy couch and easy chair. The bed was one of the best I have slept on, not sure if same in all rooms, but was in this one.

    This is a nice hotel, well worth the cost. The staff are informed and helpful and very pleasant.

    « Stopped for a good night's rest. »

    I have stayed here before. I liked the renovations they had done. We had a quick check in at the desk. The room looked nice. The bathroom toilet had not been cleaned well under the toilet seat. I was disappointed to see that. We went to go swimming the pool was cold so I can only guess it is not heated. One area of concern was the pool deck. It was painted and I felt it would be easy for someone to slip and fall. I feel it should have more texture to it for guest safety.

    « Nice place to stay on a long trip home from Alaska »

    I should have looked into more BW on our trip to Alaska and back. The place was very reasonably price and very clean. The only drawback was the lack of restaurants in walking distance, only fast food choices.

    « maybe we got a lemon room »

    Too bad our room had a broken a/c. which put temp at 85. Plus the toilet leaked and ran constantly. Staff transferred us to another room but we had to haul all our luggage down a flight of steps. No elevator in this hotel. That room also had leaky toilet so hard to sleep with running toilet. Overall - a pretty bad experience.

    3
    « Decent but far from great »

    The room is fine, price is reasonable, employees are cordial. The problem lies in the service and the cleaning staff. We were checked in and given a key to a room that hadn't been cleaned yet and had to wait over an hour for the room to be cleaned. The second day of our four day stay, our room was not cleaned at all. This was our second annual trip to the area and our second four night stay and, unfortunately, we have had issues with the cleaning staff both years.

    « Under new ownership »

    The room I reserved was given to another guest. I was overcharged for my stay. Switched credit cards upon arrival and both were charged. My room wasn't cleaned once during my 3 day stay. They ran out of coffee at breakfast.

    « Would not stay again, would not recommend »

    The motel was generally okay but the room cleaning service was inadequate. The internet was not secured so couldn't use it. The roof leaked. The breakfast was awful. Only ate it once, tried a second time but, had to skip once I saw the dinning area conditions and food on buffet. Pool area was not cleaned while we were there for three days.

    « Visiting family in area »

    Was not pleased with our experience. There hallways on upper levels were not air conditioned. The air also did not work in our room. We made management aware of the issue and they said to adjust the thermostat. We did this and upon our return from visiting family, it was still hot. Called front desk around 11 pm and asked for another room. Never received a phone call back and had to call them back an hour later. Switched us to a smoking room with one less bed (3 of us). The room was cool but the smell was horrible and the pullout couch was as well.

    « Hotel is Ok, Given Time Staff will be too. »

    I stayed at this hotel for a family reunion, we reserved 25 rooms, all to be on the first floor, since they do not have an elevator. By choice, we ultimately only needed 11 rooms, but 2 were put on the 2nd floor. We had a total of 43 individuals, adults and children; One of the guest services employees was extremely friendly and helpful; one was somewhat helpful, one was rude, one was on the verge of being rude due to his lack of training; and one was extremely rude, fortunately for any new guests going to this hotel he will not be there; so you will have a chance at having a good experience with the guest services staff. The breakfast was okay. The kitchen staff was very nice and helpful and she tried her best to accommodate the hotel guests needs. The overall appearance of the hotel is .in need of some serious upgrades. The washing machine was broken most of the week we were there, due to some previous guests and was not repaired while we were there, so we hand washed and then dried our clothes in the dryer. The pool decking is extremely slippery when wet, our small children fell numerous times trying to walk around the pool, adults had to walk gingerly around the pool area also. The pool was kept clean at all times, but it needs to be refaced and repaired too. there was a gazebo type area in the pool area, but the covering did not do it any justice, did not keep the rain away, and did not completely cover it. We used their grill on a daily basis, but the grill is in serious need of an upgrade. One grill was totally broken, the other was in desperate need of repair or replacement. It worked, but barely, they did provide a pair of tongs and a scrubby brush for the grills, no other utensils were available (we asked). Some rooms had a smell that was undefinable and my relatives had to be moved to other rooms, others were ok. the staff is not very good at enforcing quiet rules in general. Since this seems to be a destination spot for travelling teams (basketball girls team; boys baseball team, etc), it seemed that the chaperones did not control what their kids did or how late they were running up and down the hallways, when we called the front desk, it fell on deaf ears. Since the overall rudest guest services individual is no longer going to be there, his attitude towards my family will not be addressed here. It was brought to the attention of the new owner and he is aware. Overall given time, the new owner will have this hotel up to par with BW standards, but for now, just know that it is in a transitional state. Oh, must say that the cleaning staff were very good, although a few of them spoke no English at all, so take your chances with trying to get things. Overall, My family said that it was in a great location for everything that we wanted to do, and they were overall happy, so that is all that matters to me.

    « Almost There »

    The bw is almost a great place to stay. They need to do a little work though. The rooms need seem stale, need some attention. They are clean, just seem to feel incomplete. Pool area needs some help also. Over all, I would stay their again. The price point is right on, staff was great and the breakfast has a verity.

    « Disappointed & dated.... »

    We chose to stay here on short notice based on the TA reviews.... I'm not sure what hotel the people that are giving 5 stars to this hotel are staying.. but I don't see how it is this one. We called to make the reservation and specifically asked for a King sized bed. We confirmed that at the front desk when we checked in. Get to our room... and only had a queen. To make it funny... it looks like they made the bed with king sized sheets! Putting king size sheets on a queen sized bed doesn't make it a king. Hallways were very warm, there was no elevator, which they didn't tell us. The hotel is dated... maybe the lobby has been updated but I don't see how they would consider the rooms updated.

    « pool looks great, room disappointing »

    Lobby nice, pool looked great. Front desk attendant was nice, but multiple piercings was distracting. Questioned room cleanliness since Maid left dirty gloves on top of refrig. Towels not in room, I had to go to front desk to get them. No washcloths available. Felt maid was half way done, does that mean our bathroom wasnt clean or what? Floor didnt appear vacuumed. Door to bathroom wouldn't close. Chair arm all torn up. AC door kept falling off, AC leaking onto floor and luggage. Noone at desk when I left for me to give feedback. I called out, but after a minute of no response, I just left my keycards.

    « A little outdated, but decent »

    I've used this hotel for many years now, but I have to say age is starting to get the best of it. The staff is very friendly, but the rooms themselves need work. During my first visit this past month, our toilet seat wasn't even attached to the toilet and the bathroom fan was broken. During the return trip back home, the lamp in our room was busted. Maintenance seems to be an issue nowadays. Furthermore, on some halls, non-smoking rooms are placed right next to smoking rooms so you still smell cigarettes all the time. The continental breakfast was decent, but the staff description of it upon check-in was a little overhyped. On a related note, we were told the hotel doesn't have elevators because it is a historical building, which doesn't seem to be the case, but that doesn't really matter to us anyway. Be aware, however, that if you get a second floor room, you'll be hauling your luggage up steps.

    Staff was most helpful and pleasant. Room was nice not the best, could use upgrades. Pool was a bit dirty but it was the end of the day it seemed like the pump and filter were not working. Breakfast items were limited but the staff that worked in the kitchen and served the food was outstanding. The room rate was a very good value. We had a good night sleep.

    « My 6th 'glowing-review' of this particular BW hotel »

    Well., I can now say that I've had the pleasure of staying at this particular Best Western hotel for more than 2 dozen times over the past 4 years (to attend the 6 consecutive weekend long 'Kentucky Renaissance Faire' in nearby Eminence, KY) with each occasion for a 3-night stay, as I need to travel approximately 6 hours (1-way) from north-central West Virginia for each weekend that I decide to attend the 'Ren-Faire'. The cleanliness and maintenance of this hotel is GREAT., and so too is the building lay-out, which has GREAT accessibility, with multiple access doors (5.!) around the building, which is GREAT for those like myself who have a bit of a 'mobility' / walking problem.! Also, the maintenance of everything., from the parking lot, the quality (and care of) the swimming pool, breakfast room, exercise room, Wi-Fi internet system, vending & ice machines, etc., AND the quality of the 'staff'., from those at the 'front-desk' to the cleaning & maintenance staff., has NEVER failed to disappoint me..!! As far as the rooms are concerned (at least the ones that I've stayed in) are GREAT.! They've always been very clean, spacious, comfortable, and even well decorated.!, with GREAT amenities, from fast internet, quiet air conditioning / heating units, comfortable / firm beds, spacious bathrooms, etc.. What else good can I say., especially when compared with the more-than-reasonable prices charged.! And I'd also like to give a special THANKS., to Luke and Melissa at the 'front desk' on this particular occasion., for being quite helpful with the 'checking-in' process for our (my wife & I) room.!! With much appreciation, Eric Klein

    « Always Clean and Quiet »

    This is my fourth time staying at this Best Western, and it always meets expectations for a clean and quiet stay. I will say that in the past (about two years back) there have been some issues accommodating a request for an early check in, which has been difficult considering that several times I've arrived after a 15 hour drive, completely exhausted. However this visit and the previous one have been stellar. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel is near several fast food restaurants for ease of access. They have free breakfast every morning which is pretty standard fare, and to my surprise they also have dinner every Tuesday and Thursday! (I've yet to try it). The outdoor pool has always been very well kept and seems to be a nice area to relax and enjoy a book as well as swim. Definitely a recommended place to stay in the Shelbyville area!

    The crew at this hotel is outstanding. They were helpful and accomodating. We had someone with small children and they let us use the empty breakfast room to have pizza and drinks for the family when the kids arrived. they made very good suggestions for things for us to do while there and we did a couple of them.

    « It was fine... »

    We've stayed here a few times. Always friendly staff. This time was a bit different. We always get a handicap room, as one of us is disabled. We asked for the same room as before, if available. The gal said she remembered me but then asked, "umm, do you need that type of room?" This was a turn off. I understand people ask for these rooms to get first floor (no elevator), but if you in fact remember us and you know what room we're asking for that we've been in twice before (101).....yes, we need a handicap room! We were put in a different handicap room (123) which was fine, however this room must not be used often. It was at the very end of the hall by an emergency exit. The door was surrounded by cobwebs! Upon entering and closing the door we saw a large gap along the left side of the door, in which you could see out into the hallway. The room was very spacious as was the bathroom. WiFi was good, as always. Plenty of good, thick towels in the bathroom and many grab rails. However, there were cobwebs all over in the bathroom....and along the ceiling in the room....and two spider bites happened. Everything else in the room was great! Comfy beds, good linens, nice sized TV (chanel selection is a bit small, but doable), good HVAC unit. Fridge/Micro in room as well. The front desk wasn't as friendly as usual...we will pass it off as a bad day. We will be back and hope things will be excellent like prior visits.

    « One night stay »

    After a long day we decided to get a room and sleep a few hours. This hotel looks clean and the reviews wasn't real bad so we reserved. When walking into the room it felt to be zero degrees. We turned the heat on and it didn't seem to be getting warm at all. Turns out the window was wide open! Closed the window and finally by 2am it was warm enough to take a shower ( heat lamp in bathroom doesn't put out heat). I notice the trash can is running over ( I'm tired and assume the house keeper just forgot it no biggie). I go to shower......only 2 wash clothes. ( what will we do in the a.m.) I decide I don't care I'll use the small towel tomorrow morning. We get in bed 2:30 am. Car alarm goes off at 3:00am I'm up. Ugh! Reach for the lamp to go see what's going on it don't work. I go to my window and the alarm is off. Go back to the bed check the lamp, it's unplugged and there is no clock for light either, I plug it up and nothing so I further investigate, no light bulb! I move the bulb out of my husbands side lamp to mine and finally light. It's 4am now so I finally lay back down after all check out is at 11 no problem I'll sleep till 10 then grab a shower and head out. Just before my clock ( on my phone) goes off I hear knock knock housekeeping...... Before I can get awake enough to say just a minute she's in my room! Thankfully I was able to speak and she apologized and closed the door. OMG! I go get my small towel get a shower and I'm gone before 11. What was suppose to be a rest ended up being more tiresome than if I'd have drove the 4 hours home since I could have been there by 4am. I didn't complain because I don't like doing that and I was to tired to change rooms and it was clean other than the trash. The beds are comfortable but the sheets don't fit and they flip off all night long. Feeling this was just bad luck and a bad night I would return if I had to have a place to stay in the area at midnight.

    They have renovated most of this hotel. When they used the shower in the room above me it sounded as though they were jackhammering the floor the entire time. I can also hear every word anyone said in the hallway. Smoking is allowed upstairs, however when I entered the hotel near my room downstairs, the smoke smell was terrible. There are better options nearby for a little more money.

    « Adequate accomodations »

    Adequate accommodations, but staff was unable to process our $50 coupon we had earned through rewards program. Management had not given them password to process coupons creating problems for the employees and the guests. Had to discuss upon checkin and again at checkout as it had not been addressed overnight as promised. Breakfast shut down precisely at 9:00am, not even allowing us to sit and finish our coffee while planning our day and watching the news. (TV's were shut off, I suspect they were on a timer) The door was slammed behind us by a staff member. Combined, this all created a very unwelcoming feeling. Mattress as comfortable, but the pad was too small for the mattress, causing both the pad and the bottom sheet to pop off the corners.

    We did not have a reservation when we stopped here on a Sunday night. The front desk check-in woman (did not get her name) was very helpful. She made sure we got a room on the first floor and also told us about a great local place for dinner; Claudia Sanders Dinner House (which was built by Colonel Sanders for his wife, Claudia). Very nice place and generous homestyle cooking. We would have stayed here again but we did not go through Shelbyville, KY on the return trip home.

    « Third room was not a charm »

    When we entered the room we were given it was not the king bed that was confirmed on booking. They then moved us to a king room..the light in the bathroom was either burned out or a problem with the flourescent fixture. After waiting for about 30 minutes to have it fixed we were told there was no one to fix it. They finally moved us to the third room. The flourescent light inside the door didn't work, the table lamp on the desk didn't work ( maybe needed bulb replacement) and the toilet took 3 flushes to actually flush. When we told them in the morning about the room's issues they asked if we told the night staff......we had already been told there were no more rooms avilable and truthfully we were just tired of moving rooms...This is not a reflection on the staff who did apologize.They are adverising for a maintenance man on the front motel sign.The breakfast room was also very small and had seating for about 24 people(and there were more than that number there looking for places to sit. There was a long bar on one side of the room.....perhaps a good idea would be to add stools to that area.....

    The people at this place do care about guest comfort. They have a clean, modern place and their care of it is a reflection of the comfort they want guests to feel.

A lot of nice extras that you will not find elsewhere, even at a higher price.

    Stayed here one night. The facility is very clean and well-maintained. The only drawback is the lack of an elevator for guests. If that is a problem, be sure to ask for a ground floor room. Breakfast is nothing special at all, just the usual make-your-own waffle, bagels, cereal, etc, but the breakfast room is very clean and pleasant (lots of space). Pool area is quite attractive. Perhaps the best part of this place is the exceptionally friendly staff, both at check-in and check-out. Probably the nicest welcome I have ever had at a place like this.

The place was very clean and quite for the most part. I'm sure it was just a bad night for us but someone kept running up and down the steps all night for several hours, not sure why. We called the front desk and it did stop for about a half hour but then continued after that until about 4 AM. All in all the location is close to the interstate and this area is beautiful. Rates are affordable and they do take discounts. Just don't take a room near he steps.

In the morning, they gave us a full refund, so we ended up being happy about that; however VERY tired the next day. Probably wouldn't stay there again, as a construction worker who was staying there all month said this happened earlier on in his stay as well.

    Just spent one night and it was ok. The hotel did have smoking rooms and the area I was in smelled like smoke. The wifi was not working and breakfast closed at 9 so we missed out on the free breakfast. It was an ok hotel but not a place I would choose again.

    The property was attractive and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was also clean, spacious and attractively decorated. Beds very comfortable. Great pool and good breakfast.

    you simply can't find a more caring and accommodating staff! Neat, clean , and comfortable rooms. Great place to stay with an outdoor pool. Staff arranged a pizza party in the breakfast room for our boys. They ordered the pizzas then went to the store to pickup the pop/soda we requested and provided plates, cups, ice, and napkins at no charge. We were very surprised as we were playing in a tournament all day and didn't have time to do all this. Simply Awesome for a mid-size hotel.

    We stayed at Best Western for 3 nights and it was totally awesome! From the time we checked in until we checked out, we were very satisfied! The front desk employees welcomed us and explained all we needed to know for our stay. The breakfast they provided was wonderful! Special kudos to Sharon who really went out of her way to make us happy & provided special delicious food. Great way to start the day!

    « Great place to stay »

    Just returned from a mother-daughter getaway to the Louisville area. We wanted to go to the Horseshoe Casino in Indiana and to the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass in Simpsonville, KY. I read TripAdvisor reviews and chose this hotel. SO glad we did. The employees (from the desk to the maids) were all friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean, the beds comfortable, and our double queen room was spacious. The hotel seemed fully booked and I was amazed at how quiet the rooms were. The free breakfast had plenty of good choices, and we were told that free spaghetti and meatballs were offered for dinner. (We had already eaten) We booked our reservation through TripAdvisor and found that to be quite convenient. The hotel served as an excellent "home base". We will definitely go back to this hotel the next time we "run away from home" for some fun. :)

    « My 5th 'glowing review' of this wonderful hotel AND staff..!! »

    Well., I've now had the pleasurable experience of staying at this particular Best Western hotel on almost two (2) dozen occasions over the past 3 years (mainly for the use of attending the local 'Kentucky Renaissance Faire' in nearby Eminence, KY), with each time for a 3-night stay..!! And so far., the quality, cleanliness, maintenance, etc. of the building lay-out / accessibility, the parking lot, the rooms, the swimming pool, the internal facilities (breakfast room, Wi-Fi internet, vending & ice machines, etc.)., AND the quality of the 'staff'., from those at the 'front-desk' to the cleaning-staff., has NEVER failed to disappoint me..!! Especially when compared the VERY reasonable prices charged., though of course, I wouldn't want them to raise their prices, just because of those like myself that have given them such great reviews of their establishment, and would hope that a continued increase in their 'occupancy-rate' would make-up for any increases in their continued 'cost of operations'..!! And I'd like to give a special THANKS., to Miss. Jeri at the 'front desk' this time., for helping to get my room number changed, to a location that better met my needs as a 'semi-handicapped'., Renaissance Faire attendee..!! Cheers, Eric

    « Clean, friendly staff, convenient »

    This hotel was great and I would recommend it to anyone. Couple of disappointments though. When I put the contents of the hotel tube (provided in the shower) in my hair, I discovered it was body lotion. So I had to get out of the shower and get in my suitcase to grab my emergency bottle of shampoo. Since all the floors are tile, this could have had dire consequences for my 68 year old body. My only other complaint (minor) was breakfast. I saw "hot" in the description and assumed - incorrectly - there would be meat & eggs. There was a nice variety though - biscuits & gravy, diced potatoes, waffles, oatmeal & cereal. But the bed was amazing - really comfortable. The room was clean. The pool looked clean also. We also appreciated the easy access to I-64. We will come back here if we travel this was again.

    We stopped here for the night on our way back from Chicago. It was a very nice, spacious, and clean room. We had the complementary breakfast which consisted of a waffle and pancake maker, eggs, sausage and gravy, and a lot more. The pool area looked really nice and was recently renovated, wish we had more time for the kids to enjoy it. The hotel staff was nice and courteous. Next time visiting the Simpsonville Outlets or needing a stop when passing through we will stay here again.

    Overall, good. There was only one available outlet in our room, so bring a power strip if you have several electronics. Breakfast ends at 9 am and there is only one waffle maker so if you like waffles, get there with plenty of time to eat. Rooms were clean. Staff friendly.

    « Feels like home! »

    Been staying there over a year, 6 days per week, due to work. The staff goes over and above. They feel more like family now. They figured out I leave early and even though the breakfast room wasn't open yet, they always made sure I had a good breakfast. Coffee was always hot and fresh and ready to go. They put me in a room that I liked that was quiet and somewhat private. They were very accommodating, putting me in that same room each week. The rooms have microwaves and refrigerators and my room had a rocking recliner. The pool is great after a workout in the fitness room. Anyone who is going to be staying long term, this is the place!

    « Unlikely to stay here again »

    Although the staff is very pleasant and helpful, the hotel isn't quite as nice and relaxing as we would've liked. Our toilet didn't function properly. The problem was eventually solved because we were able to change rooms, but the initial solution was to give us a plunger so we could plunge the toilet ourselves! The hallway had an unpleasant cigarette smoke/musty smell. It was very noisy early in the mornings on the weekend we were there. Men who seemed to be construction workers staying in the hotel were talking quite loudly in the hallway on both mornings which woke us up earlier than we would've liked. The area around the hotel isn't very pleasant - not much to do and not really a family area.

    We booked a hotel room with another place and the lady was so rude and disrespectful. We found best western after eating dinner and wow is all I can say! They were amazing. We came down to Kentucky because my uncle had passed away and we were all so emotional and needed to rest before we traveled home to northern Illinois. Thanks for treating us with so much respect. Food was delicious. Room was very spacious and beds were comfy. Service was great. The front desk lady even gave us a "to go bag" that had a bottle of wAter , fruit and a granola bar in a cute little gift bag. Only downfall was the pool wasn't open yet for the season. But that was our fault for not asking. The pool opens next month lol

    The smell of just made popcorn and smiling faces greeted me as I walked in. The property is older but nicely kept up and renovated. There were good sitting areas both inside and out. The people were really pleasant and it had your typical free breakfast buffet with some hot items. The room was fine but I do wish they had makeup mirrors for us people who can't see our face anymore. If you prefer pancake type flat pillows- bring your own. Theirs were fluffy, but I liked them.

    This is a decent, but average hotel. This was our second stay here and we will stay here again in the future. Our first stay was very nice and we got a great night's sleep. This time there were several rude guests who were talking loudly in the hallway and woke us up. We encountered no problems during our first stay; this time the bathroom door in our room required some significant maintenance, but it was not enough to report until we checked out. We will stay here again in the future.

    We stayed one night at this location and were pleased with the experience. The room was nice sized with 2 queens. The room had a flat screen tv, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The complimentary breakfast was good. Waffles and biscuits and gravy being the hot items, cold cereal, oatmeal , yogurt, bagels and muffins also available. There is also a McDonalds across the street if desired. Only negatives were the hairdryer, hardly any airflow even on high, and if your room faces the road, you'll hear the traffic. We will stay here again because the price was right!

    We are on a road trip across America. We are also traveling with a dog. Based on recommendations from Cesar Millan (The Dog Whisperer), he suggests Best Western.

    « avoid the noise »

    This hotel was in general average at best. The bed was comfortable, and there was fresh popcorn at the entrance. However, the noise was obnoxious. We had a room facing the pool, and the pool party noise went on until the wee hours of the morning. Across the hall was a party, that was almost as loud. To make it worse the room itself was loud. The plumbing sounded like a vibrating bed! Overall, it's a lot of money for little sleep. The hotel staff are powerless to control the problem noise, so do yourself a favor and pick some place else.

    « Filthy! »

    The first room we were assigned to was filthy. I immediately noticed that the floors had not been vacuumed since the last guest had left. I then looked under the beds for bed bugs (I do this in every hotel I stay in). I did not find any, but it was disgusting under them. There was mold growing on the base of the bed along with trash, dead bugs and some unidentifiable brown blob underneath. I then looked in the bathroom and realized that not only had the tub not been cleaned, the last person to use it must have been covered in mud because the tub was absolutely filthy! At that point I requested a room change. The man at the front desk was apologetic and gave us a different room. The 2nd one was marginally better. It had not been vacuumed well and there was still a lot of debris under the beds, but at least the tub was clean and I did not see any obvious signs of mold under the beds. By that point we were exhausted and just wanted to sleep, so we decided just to stay in that room. We also noticed that there was furniture in the 2nd room that was missing in the 1st (a table and chairs), which explained the huge empty space we noticed in the 1st room. When we checked out in the morning, I mentioned that the 2nd room was still not clean and she promised to have a manager call me, but they never did. Cleanliness is obviously not a priority at this hotel. Besides the above issues, the hall smelled musty and looked dirty. I will definitely never stay in this hotel again and would be reluctant to stay in another Best Western. Breakfast was also marginal. Certainly one of the least appetizing spreads I have seen at a hotel in a long time. Coffee was burnt, waffle tasted funny and the biscuits & gravy looked pretty bad. There were no eggs or breakfast meats. The one positive thing I will say is that the two people at the front desk I spoke with were extremely friendly.

    « In the Rain »

    Traveling on a cool, rainy night, we phoned the Best Western to check on room availability.It was great to be greeted with a happy, friendly desk clerk. She was very helpful when we spoke about the AARP discount, plus having a Best Western Gift Card we needed to use. In addition to having coffee for us in the lobby , the popcorn was an added bonus.

    We stayed here on 10/9/15. The room was dirty and smelled like urine. I went to desk and showed them an example of the dirt that we spied from floor with wash cloth. Also told them the room had a urine smell and loose dirt on floor. He told me he would call and discuss with manager. Next morning I went back to desk and the lady said she had spoken with manager and they would reduce the charges some. I then told her that we had just pulled mattress cover off and found a large stain on our bed, and assumed it was urine and where smell was coming from. She would have manager call us on our way home. Two later and no call. I would not recommend this place.

    « The Staff Is Incredibly Kind »

    I had made the mistake of reserving the room for Oct 2 instead of the first, which was when we arrived. Melissa, the clerk on duty, found us a room and cancelled out the other reservation quickly and graciously. She explained things well and was anxious to see that we had everything we needed, including wi-fi directions. The young man who was also a clerk (sorry that I can't remember his name) was also a lovely, gracious host. On Tuesday and Thursday evenings he provides a choice of pinto beans/cornbread or spaghetti/French bread for guests. What a great cook he is. I had driven all day in pouring rain, so having something warm and comforting to eat without having to go back out into the rain was really appreciated. I never tasted better pinto beans in my life.

    We did not have a reservation and found the towns in the area were booked due to a convention. The two front desk attendants worked diligently to find us a room at another hotel to no avail. One of the attendants suggested we take a room that was reserved for someone who was arriving at 1:00 a.m. and they would ready another room for when he arrived. We had a spacious and very clean, comfortable room for the night with breakfast in the a.m. The breakfast room is clean and a nice selection of items for breakfast. We were only sorry we weren't staying longer.
