Historic and beautiful, the Boone Tavern at Berea College is so unique and storied. Husband went to school at BC so we have always wanted to stay there. It is an old hotel and almost impossible to not hear everyone who is talking or running in the hallway but the room itself was clean and comfortable. Great to head right down to the dining room for breakfast. Hope to come back soon!

This is a Historic Inn and the hallways are a bit hilly. I was traveling with my 86 year old mother and she had a bit of a time walking in the halls going to our room having to hang on to the walls. I had called ahead to make sure there was an elevator, so she didn't have to access our room by stairs as climbing stairs is difficult for her. The rooms were comfortable and clean, nice bathroom. Had to figure out that you have to turn on a main switch in order to get lights to work in the room. It would have been nice to know that at the front desk, but after looking around a bit there were notes on wall near the door.
