Clean, friendly, nothing fancy, but Felt safe enough to leave the door unlocked. Very nice pool! Room had a little odor, but for a roadside motel, was very nice. Stayed in MUCH worse for more money! Great location, right outside natural bridge park.

A group of about 15 of us descended on L'il Abners for the weekend. We booked several rooms and the top half of a house. Unfortunately, it was a bit rainy for the weekend but we had fun anyway. The rooms were clean and very servicable. The staff was very friendly and responsive. We spent many hours sitting ouside in...

Stayed one night on a motorcycle trip. Shared a room with a friend. Several other friends rented rooms too. We sat on the front walk and talked for hours. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, the cost was low. I definitely recommend. It has a pool, but I did not use it.

Always clean, always affordable, and close to anything and everything you'd want to do in the area! There are a few shops in walking distance. They also have cottages which are extremely nice and spacious. Love the pool as well!

My husband and I visited the area the day after Thanksgiving. We like to go to Natural Bridge State Park and The Red River Gorge. We had stayed at the state park inn before and another nice motel in the area. We decided to check out the Li'l Abner Motel because we had passed before on our way to the...

Amid seasonal changes, a nearby fall festival, and an array of local activities, hotel accommodations were difficult to find for my family for my aunt's funeral recently. We were afforded two rooms at the Li'l Abner #2 location; one smoking, one non-smoking. As a former smoker I figured I would fare better in the smoking room than my sister who...

Li'l Abner Motel is a Great place to stay. The front desk ladies were nice. The pool was fun. The rooms were very clean not a spec of dust anywhere. They have a front and back door with front and back parking which I liked actually. You can sit on the chairs out front your room and see the stars...

Great location if you are going to do any of the fun adventurous activities in the area. This room has two doors (front and back) and you can park on either side (reserved spot). Open to the outside. Everything in the room was good! It was clean! It felt 'homey' and safe! The woman at the front desk counter was...

Although their website is sketchy, and the overall look of the hotel looks rundown, Lil Abner was very nice. It feels safe, which it did not seem at first sight. Stay in a suite, as they are nice and homely. Bring shampoo/comb, as they are not provided and not sold
