We actually drove past the hotel initially as we hadn't realised quite how close it was to I-24. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful when we checked in, making sure we knew where our room was. The rooms have recently been remodeled, lovely neutral colour scheme and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The reception staff were also very helpful pointing out places we might want to visit on a map for us as we arrived.

The hotel really does have a great location, peaceful down before you get to Paducah, Kentucky- definitely somewhere we'd go back to.

My parents and I went hiking in Shawnee, and I booked this because it was the nearest hotel that would also accept my dog at reasonable prices. I was wary because of reading the bad reviews, but it seems management has changed, and with it a total renovation of everything. Don't be fooled because it is a roadside inn - it's one of those hotels you see on the blue sign near the highway and you can see the Limited Inn sign way up high from the road. The lobby and building looks a bit oldish, but when we entered our room we were really surprised to see a new and modern hotel room. Everything was new and sparkling clean - bathroom, sink, dressers, everything. My mom was grumbling and wanted to go to a campground when we saw the building, but quickly changed her mind once we entered the room. Also, their continental breakfast is decent - cereal, bagels, juice, milk, fruit, that kind of thing. My parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and so did our pup! It is also a good place to stay if visiting the Shawnee Forest (you have to be extra careful for ticks but it is beautiful!)

My boyfriend and I had checked all over for a hotel with a good rate as one that does not charge you up front: sometimes you do not always get the service and quality that you pay for. This is not the case with The Limited Inn.

We are from Chicago, IL and expected this hotel to be a small mom and pop establishment. This is something we enjoy about living in the Midwest. Not only did we discover that the hotel used to be run by a mom and pop couple, the hotel was gifted to their daughter as a wedding present. The daughter combined partnerships with Motel 7 (smart choice) and our room looked just the picture above; immaculate in cleanliness, excellent service from the whole staff, new flatscreen televisions (tons of channels to choose from), our room was serviced (cleaned) each day,the pool was clean and inviting, and just a very pleasant and enjoyable visit.

I am a firm believer in customer service; one who works in hospitality should always go above and beyond to ensure their customer not only has a good experience, but will return. That is what the staff emulated throughout our entire weekend.

The only suggestions I would make is to update the food and coffee condiments. Instead of packaged creamer, use fresh creamer or the individual creamer servings. Upgrade to Splenda instead of the generic non calorie sweetener and the fruit should look fresh. Also, if you see that the soap dispenser is low, put a new dispenser out. Costs 99 cents. This is a hotel discrepancy and does not reflect upon the staff, as they do not have the responsibility of what the purchaser buys for the hotel.

Overall, we will return next year and look forward our next visit. Excellent job, Limited Inn!
