  • Nice history...

    by Kathy L on 2017-12-01 11:46 am

    The hotel staff was very nice and the lobbys were charming and comfortable. One of the wait staff was very good. Others were so so. I am sorry, but I really hate being called a guy---the breakfast server called us" guys" over 30 times...just her way of ending a sentence. She/they might need more training as the coffee cups were placed on the left; there was nothing in the menu disclosing a split plate extra fee. At lunch we were charged twice because, as the manager said, we had 2 courses. No. I ordered one thing and my husband ordered another. Two things Two plates One course.We share most of the time and have only one time had a fee to split. Which is not a problem; it just should be on the menu.
    Room was OK...Towel warming was dirty and did not work. No place in the bath for toiletries, save for a 3" x 10" shelf above the sink. Nice beds and pillows. Very nice information about the hotel and the town. We loved walking around the town, shops, the college.
    Had some Internet issues, but the IT was able to fix it rather quickly. (the whole hotel was out 3 times during our stay.)

    Thank you for visiting. We really appreciate you choosing to stay in one of our guestrooms and dine in our restaurant for breakfast and lunch. I'm sorry to hear about the confusion during your dining experience. Thank you for your suggestion regarding menu information. I will inform the restaurant manager. I let maintenance know about the towel warmer as well. I'm glad you had a restful night and I hope you visit again next time you are in the area.

  • An Absolute Treasure

    by Janet V on 2017-11-22 10:03 am

    This historic hotel, run by Berea College, is simply wonderful. From the friendly and efficient staff, to the spotlessly clean rooms, to the fabulous restaurant. It's even pet friendly (although for a rather high cleaning fee). If you're looking for a place to stop in Berea, KY, this is it, especially if you have the time to browse at the KY Artisan Center just off I-75 (the northernmost exit for Berea) or the Arts District which has a collection of various craft/gift shops (from the southernmost exit from I-75 -- both on the way to the hotel. I've stayed here many times and have no qualms whatsoever in highly recommending it.

  • Old Fashioned Charm

    by Mariellen-Exeter on 2017-11-21 06:04 am

    The building in which the Boone Tavern Hotel resides is beautiful and meticulously maintained. The rooms are not fussy but elegant; the handcrafted furniture, made by students of Berea College, adds to the feeling of being in someone's guest room. Living in New England much of my life, I don't find a building constructed in 1909 to be very old when compared to a favorite of mine in NH, the Hancock Inn, operating continuously for 227 years. Nevertheless, the Boone Tavern Hotel has distinguished itself as a "green" property, so while retaining old fashioned charm, they are evolving to forge ahead of many other hotels and bed and breakfast inns. The staff seem proud and happy to be employed there, which generally makes for excellent service. The dining room is lovely and service there is also old fashioned: warm and personable (though can be a bit slow - particularly at breakfast). The food is excellent with many of the ingredients grown/raised locally. My only disappointment was that the towels used during our first day were not removed (probably because I folded them in half and left them on the edge of the tub); there were plenty of clean towels available. I would most definitely recommend this property!

  • Wonderful Stay in a Historic Hotel

    by Richard G on 2017-11-12 09:05 am

    A beautiful historic hotel, with modern amenities and recent earth friendly upgrades. The staff was attentive and welcoming, and all are students at nearby Berea College. Our room, a Junior King Suite was nicely appointed, complete with bathrobes and slippers. I was pleasantly surprised how moderately priced it is. We have paid much more at other hotels that provide far less for the traveler. This hotel provides good value for the money. We very much enjoyed out stay, and definitely would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Berea.

  • On the way to Florida from Ohio on 75 we stopped at the Boon Tavern Restaurant

    by tizs0 on 2017-11-09 04:36 pm

    We stopped for resting on the way to Florida at the Boone Tavern Restaurant in Berea, Kentucky. It takes about 15 minutes to get there from 75. "Boone Tavern has a long tradition of welcoming guests from across the nation and around the world" quoted from the Tavern Brosure.
    We spent about one and half hour there which was really good relaxing and we had very good lunch. Students are cooking and serving there. That is an important part of Boone Tavern. The only weak point of my way was the serving. I asked the waiter to give little ice to my Coke but he brought the usual quantity what is the normal way to most of the Americans.
    We can strongly recommend this place.
