Villa Hills, Kentucky
Reviewed 19 July 2015

Our room was so clean and the beds were so comfy. The shower was roomy and the shower head was great. The breakfast was good and staff was very friendly. I highly recommend it. We were about 2 miles from campus and close to a Krispy Kreme Donut store!

This is an amazing hotel. Me and my fiancé stayed here after a very long trip & I don't have one complaint. The shower was absolutely. The shower pressure was awesome. The bed was so soft and comfort. The breakfast was wonderful also. FYi- the hotel was so clean and smelled like bleach.
