We just randomly found this place while surfing the net. It looked inviting and had great reviews. Boy, were they right! The owner, Sandy, and her son have a fabulous little motel there. It was EXTREMELY clean and they were so friendly. The bathtub was so clean I felt comfortable bathing my toddler in it and I'm quite funny about... More

I found the motel to very quite, clean and very much like home. The staff went out of their way to ensure I have ice when the ice machine quit working. Excellent detail in room amenities. I have stayed there 2 time this year and 1 last year. This is my favorite place in southern KY to stay. I travel... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed here for 2 nights, taking 2 rooms. Prices were great. This motel suited us for what we need. This was our second stay here. We come to the area for fishing. Being a motel we can back up to our room doors. The staff was friendly, nothing needed to be repaired etc. They set pieces... More

We had reservations and arrived after 8 pm. We had 2 rooms side by side. This was the dirtiest hotel I have ever been in. They moved us to another room but was just as dirty and smelled so strong of cigarettes that I couldn't breathe. At 930pm they sent someone to clean the rooms with a bottle of cleaner... More

Very clean and sweet staff and owners. Can't beat the prices. It's convenient to the train and other awesome things to do. The Cumberland Falls State Park is very close as well. They make special treats each day for the guests. The pool is great when we visit in the summer.

Stearns, KY is a very poor area without much shopping, hotels, or industry for jobs. They do have the Scenic Railroad, which draws a lot of visitors, and it is gorgeous-high recommend you take the train ride! This hotel is a small locally owned and operated non-chain business. It reminds me of staying with family! The lady answered the phone... More

I stayed at this motel recently while in Stearns with family members. The motel is adequate but don't expect any frills. It provides basic accommodations and is reasonably priced. My room was clean but the sheets were somewhat dingy and the place could use some sprucing up. An unexpected feature is the homemade treats for guests to enjoy each day.... More

Enjoyed our stay very much! Owners were very friendly and helped with finding things to do. They have homemade treats for you to have at night. I highly recommend the carrot cake! We rode the Big South Fork Railway and enjoyed it very much.

My husband, son and I booked a local River and Rails tour so we picked this motor lodge because it was close to where we needed to be. We arrived later in the evening, and left early so I didn't see a pool or any other visitors. The staff was very nice and helpful at check in and the room... More
