Not Too Bad

Overall this motel was clean, neat and orderly. The staff was very friendly and anxious to take care of things w/o delay. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. A few prolbems did exist that should not have been there w/ a motel as young as this one. The tub drain was very slow. On the first time of showering the bottom was covered by the time I was half way rinsed. By the end of 2 days it was 2 inches of water in the bottom of tub by the time you finished showering. The water pressure wasn't that strong so that meant the drain was even slower. The plug in the toilet tank was rotten and falling apart. At 3 am in the morning I had to do minor surgery on the toilet to get it to stop running at full blast in order to keep from waking my 21 month old baby. The recliner had a piece missing, exposing a very dangerous piece of metal framework. Not good for a nosey 21 month old. Considering how young this motel is and how well staffed they seemed to be I didn't feel I should have to be constantly reporting to front desk, nor performing maintenance in the middle of the night just to have a comfortable stay. Despite the few inconveniences I would recommend this motel for anyone in the Ashland, Ky area. There was plenty of room in the unit, lots of furniture for any purpose (including business), and good amenities. Have a wonderful stay.

Visiting Family

As my husband says if you want something nice you have to pay for it ... At 1st we had decided to downgrade our stay while we came into visit family and it was an absolute horror and we are totally embarrassed to mention it - so we immediately called the Best Western and reserved a room ... As for the Best Western the only thing was the stay wasn't long enough ... we always enjoy the staff, and even the guests are very friendly!!! VERY CLEAN ... love to smell CLEAN!!! My kids especially love the breakfast bar and the evening snack bar ... which I think is pretty near ... you can make it almost like an evening of fellowship ... We have mae made this hotel our permanent hotel choice when are traveling back to the area to visit family.

family weekend

This is the 2nd or 3rd time staying in this facility. And we have always enjoyed it ... The only downside is they have an outdoor pool which means the kids have nothing to do when they bored.

Ashland visit.

Friendly personnel, but not very knowledgeable about their jobs or the amenities provided by the facility. Training would help a great deal.
