"This was a last minute reservation."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We needed a place to stay that was pet friendly, we travel to Florida for the winter every year pulling a small trailer and taking our "pittie" Sophie with us. I forgot to make a reservation before we left home so got on a website that helped find pet friendly hotels and it came up with this Holiday Inn Express in Berea Kentucky. The room was beautiful, clean, smelled clean and close to the elevator (my husband has a broken leg at this time so that was important!) The people were very friendly and extremely helpful, even offered to help me get all our stuff needed to our room for the night! The free breakfast we enjoyed in the morning was excellent also and coffee was SUPER! We will DEFINATELY stay here again! (only hiccup. .the person who made the reservation on the phone did not add the pet charge of 25.00 when quoting the final price so when we arrived at the hotel it was 25.00 more than quoted but so worth it to have a clean really nice place to stay with our Sophie) Sandy and Larry Knierim.
