I loved the early 1900's feel of this place you can clearly see that it is a historic place to behold.The basment area was a bit drab and cold as I walked around to find a bathroom but I was warmly greeted by hotel staff and was givin info on future restoration projects this place feels homy and has a old NY feel to it.I saw no Gold plates or any bad smells of any kind only huge mirrors an epic size painting of Daniel boone and warm faces.
the resturaunt next door looked Beautiful however was not open at the time.I will be staying thier on my next visit.
When you approach the outside of the hotel you wouldn't guess that it was the second oldest hotel in Kentucky. Even as the tallest building in the area, its not at all impressive. Surrounded by empty stores with for rent signs and a strip club, its not an impressive location either. Upon entering the building, you will see a small setup with trinkets for sale, most of them looking like yardsale items. There are old, dull brass plates that line the walls, tons of them. The lobby isn't air conditioned, so besides the stuffy sticky feeling you get you also smell a combination of must and sewage near the stairwell to the upper levels. Many of the halls look like they haven't been vacumed in ages. The rooms are decent enough, considering you can pay as low as 35 dollars a night (or 158 weekly) and get a living room, kitchen and bath with their own separate rooms. Walking down the halls on the west wing, I saw much nicer halls with large wooden doors accompanied by curtained windows. I didn't stay in one of those rooms, or even take a look, but I would assume the price would be much higher. Overall, the hotel isn't impressive if you are the average tourist who is wanting to get a good comfortable room for the night. However, if you're the adventure seeker or an author, the place seems perfect. There is also a decent wi-fi connection, although not the hotel's. Cable is included of course. I myself, being a writer and a fan of Silent Hill love the place. And I suppose the romantic might be quite charmed with all of the noble paintings and suits of armor sort-a decor. So really it depends on why you need to rent a room. Exhausted and hot from the road, not for you. An aspiring film maker or author, perfect.
