Comparing apples to apples on this class of hotel I would rate the best in have been to. We always look forward to attending the Rolex Three Day event at the KY Horse Park.

This H.I. really does a nice job. Seems to be a newer location and it nice to have a H.I. in the area of Berea for traveling purposes. I did not have a reservation and hit a weekend that had a local festival in the area - my bad! But they made us welcome and gave us a great room...

We were traveling through Berea, Ky on the way to a funeral further south. We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Our room was clean, odorless and had updated features. The indoor pool was actually heated which made it nice for a quick swim. The breakfast buffet was hot and had a good variety. Very friendly staff.

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry to hear about this miscommunication! We're on the ball to make sure that our reservation department now knows that, while we do accept cash, we also do always require a credit card to be swiped and authorized at checkin. This does result the in the bank associated with the card holding that authorization...

We were lucky to get one of the last rooms during the Jonas storm of January 2016. We stayed two nights and all of the staff were amazing. Kathy at the front desk was so welcoming. Friday night she put out pancakes so we all had something to eat. Most were stranded with little food and there was no place...

We are so happy to have helped out as many people as we could fit in the hotel! I'm glad you enjoyed the pancakes - Kathy had the idea and we just thought that'd be a perfect snowstorm treat with delivery times being so crazy. We hope to be a destination for your future travels so you can enjoy some...

This place is great. The staff was very helpful. The room was very clean and large. The pool was fantastic. The breakfast was so good that we had to wait for a table because everybody staying there was eating there.

Glad to hear everything was up to par! Tip for overcrowded breakfast: ask the breakfast attendant or front desk clerk if the meeting room is available for extra seating. Sometimes we get so busy we forget to open that up!

Great stay in a new place with clean room, comfy bed , friendly staff, healthy breakfast choices, and great windows to block sound. Loved the convenience off the highway and just a few miles to town. Pet friendly with a small fee.
