Overnight or 4-6 hour rest in KY

Looking for suggestions of a place to rest and or short night between Elizabethtown and Bowling green KY. This area would put me in my daily travel distance. We would be heading south. This would be the end of March, as far as time frame. Thank you in advance for any info

If it doesn't bother you, there are several Pilot Travel Centers along the I65 corridor. Having driven over the road in a former life, the travel centers don't really bother me. Mammoth Cave National Park is nice though it is about 5-7 miles from the I65 exit and costs about $20 (no hookups). Visit the caves while you're there.

overnight in KY

Thank you for the info. The Travel centers don't bother me either, had not really considered that, but good idea. Also like the Caves idea.

Thanks again

Cracker Barrel, Elizabethtown, or else where.

they offer maps.. of all of there restaurants , and the ones that do allow overnights...
they close at 10, open at 6... so if parked in the rear. little noise.
, patronage is welcome, but not required.
