We love this place. The hotel has a wonderful connection to Berea college and you learn about the history just staying in the place. The rooms are cozy and nice. The price is low compared to what you get... well-worth the cost. The staff are very helpful. There is an in-house restaurant, but also a local coffee shop in the...

This historic hotel is located in the heart of Berea. It's a wonderful place for a romantic weekend and the packages are well worth the money. Friendly staff, comfortable beds/pillows and location for enjoying the arts/craft stores nearby create a pleasant experience.

Can't think of a better place to break up a road trip. Very cozy and relaxing. We enjoyed our dinner. Our servers were very informative. They explained the role of the students at Berra College. Highly recommend.

I really like this sweet hotel. So much so that I've stayed here twice this month on my way to/home from the south. But my stay last night really was off. My queen size room was very small and the carpeting had several visible stains. The bathroom shelves and moldings were dust covered. There were only 2 very small, flat...

Thank you for choosing to stay with us both times during your travels. I'm very sorry to hear your second visit wasn't as enjoyable as your first. The manner in which your room was, as you described, is not our usual standard and I really appreciate you bringing this to my attention. I will discuss this with our housekeeping staff....

We had often heard of Boone Tavern and its restaurant, but just hadn't taken the time to overnight. We changed that on January 31 and surely enjoyed our visit to this historic hotel. From the moment you enter the driveway, past years of history seep through the doorways. Splendid accommodations and very comfortable, nice amenities and a safe, inviting environment....

Boone Tavern is a very comfortable historic hotel with large sitting rooms on each floor near the elevator. Bedding is comfortable and the bathroom is large. very reasonably priced. There was not a refrigerator or microwave, so if you are accustomed to having those, you will not at Boone Tavern. What you will have is a nice hotel within walking...

First class service in a Historic hotel. People were friendly and very helpful. Just a very nice feel to the inn. It is a place to take your time and enjoy for a while. College campus adjacent is beautiful. Take your time and enjoy the special place this historic inn truly is.

Rainy Kentucky weekend, my husband and I decided to take a trip to Berea to take in the art atmosphere. The Boone Tavern was highly recommended by locals. Expecting a Tavern, we were surprised at the beautiful dining experience. The spoonbread to start with was delectable. I had the Ruben and it was the best ride I've ever had. The...

Great service, good price, quiet. All of the staff in all areas were very professional and gave us great service. Food was good we had a very pleasant waitress. The history of Boone Tavern and the college was also interesting. Thank you

Very nice classic building convenient for visiting the college campus but the rooms are small. The shower in our room did not work properly. The temperature could not be adjusted above barely warm. We reported the problem but were offered no adjustment. The dining room food was mediocre. The staff was uniformly very pleasant.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your recent tour of Berea College. Since Boone Tavern was originally built in 1909 as a rather large guesthouse for Berea College some of the rooms are quaint which is reminiscent of that time period. I will talk to the frond desk staff about your situation. Thank you for your comments...
