OUTSTANDING HOTEL!!!! As a traveling healthcare worker (whose parents live in Winchester, KY) I have stayed at this hotel many, many times. They have never, ever disappointed me and the location has only gotten better with each stay.
It is centrally located right off the interstate and bypass in Winchester, KY where almost anything you might need from a hospital, auto repair, veterinarian services, fine dining, or shopping of any type is just a mile away.
This unassuming Best Western is very, very clean, extremely well lit, is patrolled by local law enforcement, is safe for families and single travelers. The friendly staff goes way above and beyond to make every aspect of the stay wonderful and tailored to your needs.
They are VERY PET FRIENDLY and don’t charge a ridiculous fee to allow your pet to stay there. The parking lot is very large with plenty of room for trailers and bigger vehicles (like work trucks). This is a two story hotel so if you need a ground room or need to park outside of your room....this is the place for you!!!
Above all, the breakfast bar is out of this world!!! FRESHLY cut fruit, a huge coffee/tea bar, many types of cereals, pastries, FRESHLY cooked scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, etc.
It should be noted that they FRESH GRIND the Starbucks whole bean coffee, use only FRESH eggs kept in their refrigerator (never fake egg substitutes) and personally slice the FRESH fruit. They even have an entire area of GLUTEN FREE FOODS!!!!
There was soooo much good food and drinks to choose from and every single thing is excellent name brands, and served at NO CHARGE.
Seriously, on my last visit in November 2019 (a three week stay) I had a friend visit who wanted fresh made waffles but was on a very strict gluten free diet. The owner, who is such a nice lady, overheard us talking and surprised us by personally making gluten free waffle batter for her AND then taking the time to cook them for her so we could sit and enjoy visiting with each other!!!
I mean, where else but in a FIVE STAR restaurant would you get service like that? And....take as much as you want to eat (great for road warriors and maybe construction crew guys). You can eat your breakfast in the very nice dining area while watching the morning news on the huge flat screen TV or sit at the huge computer desk, snack on breakfast, check your emails or surf the Internet on their high speed a WiFi. Or, take as much as you want back to your room so you can get ready for your day.
Just so you know....every room is large, is carpeted with clean and nice smelling floor covering, plenty of drawers/storage for clothing, has a new microwave, very nice refrigerator, steam iron, ironing board, coffeemaker, blow dryer, digital alarm clock, lots of USB charger ports, HBO, a selection of coffees and teas, and very nice toiletries. And, if you happen to run out...just call the front desk. They will get you more ASAP!!!!
Their rates are extremely reasonable and they honor the Best Western Rewards program. Also, and this is important....if your stay is going to be extended, go ahead and ask the owner if she has a price break that is available. When you are there, check out all of the Best Western and local community awards they have hanging on their wall. They are very impressive to say the least!
If you are having a family reunion, are in need of a place to stay during home remodeling, have a conference with visiting business associates, have a high school or college team that needs overnight accommodations, or run a big construction crew that is working a local project......or you just need to get away for a night or two for a “vacation”.....this is the place for you or your business!!!! You absolutely cannot go wrong here! less
