Bluegrass Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here based on reviews found online. The staff is friendly and considerate. Nothing fancy but a clean, comfortable place with a reasonable price. The room has a refrigerator and a microwave oven.

Things were fairly clean. My main issue is that I was asked for $50 cash as a damage deposit. I'd never heard of that before & was skeptical, but I had already booked and did not have the energy to look for another hotel. I was given my money back, after they verified that the room was ok. Not sure why that happened or if they ask this of everyone. It was quite unexpected & offensive. What's normal is a credit card for incidentals, not cash for if you destroy the room!!!

I really liked the night staff--very friendly and accommo-dating. I stayed alone for 4 days, and my room key card quit working twice and she was quick to reactivate it. However, once at night when I returned from a long day, I was very tired so it was inconvenient and creepy to have to go back from my room's front door and have her unlock the motel office door to fix the card. The parking area behind the building was too dark for my comfort as well. For the rating of 3.1, I didn't expect a freshly updated room but the bathroom certainly could use it. The bed was comfy, the linens were fresh, and the carpet seemed relatively new so I was happy. I felt safe in my room and going out to the ice machine at night--nice and quiet with no rowdy people there. There are lots of places to gas up, get food and shop nearby.

Old, not fancy but good enough for price. Only in room to sleep, out all day. Other tenants came for pool but was not open due to lack of annual pool inspection.

The hotel was wonderful. Clean, cheap, and in a perfect location. The lady at the front desk was extremely helpful and kind. WILL stay here again whenever I travel to Louisville. Highly recommend.

Very clean room and friendly staff. I would definitely stay there again.

I was visiting Frankfort for an event and really just needed a reasonably priced, secure, and clean place to sleep. Bluegrass Inn staff was very friendly and the Rooms were clean. I will try to stay there next year!

The value is great but if you are looking for a clean bathroom this isn't your spot.

quit and comfortable. The price was reasonable. the room was clean

Perfect for overnight business trip, small but comfortable rooms, clean and fresh. check in was great and any concerns were quickly resolved . check out was a disappointment- Since reservations were not made thru them - I couldn't get my receipt at that time. This wasn't due to the Inn or their staff it was due to me going thru a 3rd party.

Bath tub dirty, smells bad, horible pillows, horrible coffe, hair dryer didn't work, and the bed WAS NOT a queen size even the the receptionist assured me that it was.

The staff was very friendly and informative and went the extra mile. The room was clean and what you would expect from a hotel room at that rate. The Cable wasn't working but I didn't complain to the front desk since I was mainly there to sleep (not watch TV). As I was washing my hands one of the plastic light covers fell off and covered the sink. I placed it back in its holder. As far as I could tell there was no elevator so lugging my suitcase up the narrow metal stairs was a pain. However the beds were comfortable, the room was a great price, I liked the location, and the staff was very friendly.

My family had to travel to Frankfort unexpectedly. We arrived late and tired and were pleased to find everything so clean and convenient. The rooms were well equipped, the grounds well lit and neat, and the staff was efficient and friendly. An all around good experience.

Room's furniture was well worn, one lamp didn't work, and TV reception was horrible. This motel appears to cater to labors that sat outside their rooms in motel chairs and walked back and forth between rooms to visit. Single women would not feel safe at this motel. Bathroom was okay as was the bed. All though I never felt threatened, I'm not staying here again.

We enjoyed a quiet and peaceful night. Was glad the air was in good working order because of the extreme heat.

We only wanted a place to sleep and rest between daytime visits with relatives. The room was quiet and cool and the beds were comfortable. We watched TV, and I enjoyed the free high speed wireless internet service. The only negative portion of our stay was the continental breakfast. The donuts and rolls were stale.

I traveled to work in Frankfort KY.

I stayed here overnight on a road trip. It was convenient to the highway, had shops and grocery store a mile up the road. Love the free in room wifi. Pet-friendly - with a fee. The staff were nice and friendly, the pool looked refreshing, but it's exposed to the main road. Room was clean and fair sized, AC worked well.

I stayed at the Bluegrass Inn because it was a cheap price and close to my meeting. However, I don't plan to stay there again. My room must have had NO sound insulation. I could hear everything - people passing on the sidewalk, neighbors talking in the next room, banging upstairs and cars on the street out front. The bathroom smelled musty and the shower was moldy. Black mold grew up the wall in each corner and across the top and bottom of the shower stall. Also, the cable wasn't working. When I called the desk, the manager said he would call the cable company. I only stayed one night, so I don't know if it was fixed or not. On the other hand, check-in was quick and easy, and the staff were friendly.

Ate at nearby restaurant and slept. Just stopped for the night to rest before continuing on with our trip.

asked for cash in advance to cover damages!?!

Everyone

Things were fairly clean. My main issue is that I was asked for $50 cash as a damage deposit. I'd never heard of that before & was skeptical, but I had already booked and did not have the energy to look for another hotel. I was given my money back, after they verified that the room was ok. Not sure why that happened or if they ask this of everyone. It was quite unexpected & offensive. What's normal is a credit card for incidentals, not cash for if you destroy the room!!!

dear sir the reason for the $50.00 cash deposit is that we charge all local guest a room deposit, due to the damages done by our local guest, it was only for security, and like you said it is refunded to each guest at check out (as long as there are no damages done to our room). as per your comment our rooms are maintained clean and up to date because we charge a safety deposit. thank you for you business management,
