    Really enjoyed my stay here... Great location and awesome staff. It is getting a little old and needs a referb (which I believe is imminent) but still clean and pleasant. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Hi, We are planning a visit for 3 days next week. Flying in to KRS. Does it pay to rent a car, or just use taxi's? We are not going far. I know the hotel does not have free parking. Is there a car hire next to hotel? Thanks
