Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    It was a non-smoking room yet smelled like smoke and stale beer, the room was cramped, (the door wouldn't open all the way without hitting the desk) the room was noisy, the bed uncomfortable and to top it off, they charge you an additional fee for parking for the privilege of staying there. By the time we got to town all other surrounding hotels were booked or way out of our price range by hundreds of dollars. Even here our 75.00 room ended up 95.00 with all the fees, taxes and parking.

  • Older travelers

    Clean, quiet, equipped with a/c, tv, coffee maker, fridge, microwave oven, complimentary Wi-Fi and continental breakfast, near to conference hotels, historical Main Street, and opera and theaters, a grocery store and a bus stop to/from airport round the corner.

    It was a bit damp in the room, there could have been some ventilation, on return we had to open the door for a while.

  • Single

    Okay breakfast. Free Wifi. Nice size rooms. Within walking distance of most major points of interest in Louisville, including restaurants.

    Due to its location and its motel-like layout (the doors of the rooms open directly to the outside or to balconies overlooking the parking lot), there can be some street noise. But this is beyond the control of the hotel itself, so no complaints.

  • Single

    Cheap and cheerful - exactly what we wanted. And a great location for downtown.

    The staff were pretty unfriendly - very unusual for Americans to be so grumpy and unhelpful.

  • Single

    The Clerks where outstanding.

    Sheets were soiled. I had to request clean sheets.

  • Older travelers

    the staff is not the best ..they seem to not like there jobs rooms seem unclean..sorry stayed 2 times to see if it was me but both times were bad ...the staff not friendly the rooms felt dirty sorry

    said above

  • Couple

    De manager refused to give us the room we booked, with a kingsizebed. instead we had to take a double queenbed and had to pay 15$ extra. The beds were very bad.The room old and decrepit. Althought we were staying in Luisville for 2 more nights, we changed to the Ramada limited. Waht a nice hotel and nice people!

  • Older travelers

    just for one night, good location near centre and friendly staff

    no complaints, normal motel room, nothing fancy, but just what we needed

  • Family with children

    It was just around the corner from the facility that I needed to go to.

  • Single

    Stayed for sightseeing of Louisville. City center location is very convenient and room was clean. My stay was fairly pleasant. Breakfast was good to me.

    Limited number of front staff might cause you a trouble.

  • Single

    Very well located, clean and nice staff. I was a bit afraid as I read some comments but it really satisfied all my expectations. Has a very convenient iron, microwave and fridge in the room.

    Th fridge did not work.

  • Group of friends

    It was close to my weekend plans.

    I did not like my check in experience.

  • Family with children

    Awesome Location. Near the Convention Center and walking distance to most places. Fourth Street night life only 2 blocks away! Absolutely loved it. Easy access to room. Nice to stay in a smaller hotel and not a huge high rise that takes a while to get around.

  • Single

    The facility has a run down feel to it. The blanket had a burn hole in it, in a non smoking room. The iron in my room didn't work. I took it to the front desk and he went away for a few minutes and replaced it with a working iron. I suspect the non heating one is in another room. I did not feel safe leaving my room after dark because of guys hanging around in the stairwells. I don't know if they were guests or not. Maids changed towels and made bed, thats all. I was in my room and they did not clean toilet, sink, or vacuum the floor. I would not stay here again.
