This is my first time staying at a motel in the US (usually B&B or hotels), so it's not the easiest one to review as I have nothing to compare with. We chose this place as it was one of few available places in the area, and were in general happy with the stay. I think is mostly used by...

Going to Natural Bridge/Red River Gorge? Exit 33 Slade is the closest spot. The 'Lil Abner is the only show in town for a motel. Simple place, late 60's motel, decent bed, clean. Pitfalls/Pleasures: This is a dry county, had to drive 6 mi south to "The Beer Store." Yes, that is what the sign on the business said. Then...

This is your old fashion motel to stay at and we enjoyed our stay. The staff very very friendly and helpful. It is located within minutes of the Natural Bridge and Red River Scenic Drive so you can go back at the end of the day to enjoy a beautiful sunset. It does have a pool and stays open until...

We stayed one night due to its location at Natural Bridge State Park. The staff was very friendly and helpful with a map of the park and must sees. The room was clean, but had a musty smell, walls are thin, as we heard the conversation in the room next to us, but for an inexpensive quick stay, it did...

The hotel is older, quite plain, no amenities, except an outdoor pool, which is actually nice. If you are looking for bare-bones, economical, & close to Natural Bridge, this will do. Very small, one level, all rooms lead to parking directly in front of room, so it's easy access to your vehicle. Within walking distance to local shops.

First of all I would like to say we were very happy with the hospitality of the owners when we arrived. They allowed us to check in a few hours early and were just super nice:) Although the room was very clean, it could use some updating and maybe a couple more pillows (since there was only two on the...
