“Clean and convinient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2011

This hotel is very close to many restaurants. Arby's, subway, Wendy's...This is an important factor to consider when travel in winter. The hotel is also very close to major highway and airport.

Thank you for taking the time to review or hotel. We appreciate your comments. We will pass these comments on to our staff. There's plenty to do and see while in Louisville - you can spend an afternoon exploring the Louisville Zoo or the Muhammad Ali Center. Churchill Downs is located a short five miles from us, so you can easily enjoy the excitement and history that surrounds the Kentucky Derby. Be sure to visit Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, one of the most popular Louisville attractions, or check out Speed Art Museum and Louisville Science Center.

Thanks again for your comments. We hope that you will come stay with us again.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

I booked 3 rooms for 6 nights - 18 total nights on Priceline. The morning we left I called twice to make sure the rooms were double queens and non-smoking. Both times the desk staff assured me that was correct and it was no problem. When we arrived however, we got king smoking (the whole top floor smells like an ashtray) rooms. They told me they were overbooked and had no other rooms. This was on a Sunday night and the hotel parking lot was empty. I realize I may have paid a little less on Priceline - but still I paid about $2000 for the week. I am not happy and will NEVER stay at a Holiday Inn again - if I ran my business like this - I'd expect the same reaction. What a joke.

I usually try and nick pick each hotel because I like perfection. I couldn’t find anything wrong here. Two year old hotel that was clean everywhere I went. Probably had the best shower of any hotel I have stayed in. Attached restaurant and bar with decent prices. This is the first one I have rated as 5 stars.

We stayed one night for an early flight out of Louisville the next morning. Hotel looks new; has a large, attractive lobby with a floor that shines/sparkles from the above lighting. Room was clean, beds were clean and comfortable with nice linens/pillows; bathroom was clean. There was a sports bar for eating/drinking with indoor/outdoor seating; there was also an indoor pool (didn't use it). FREE AIRPORT SHUTTLE to and from airport 24 hours - great service! Many fast food and sit down restaurants within a quarter mile radius; airport very close.

Nice, clean hotel that served our purpose. We didn't need any services from the staff other than their wake-up call service and they called us promptly at the exact time we requested. Would use this hotel again if the need arises.

Room Tip: My husband's place of employment allowed us to obtain a great rate for this hotel!

Since our hotel's near the Louisville, Kentucky airport, it's easy to make your flight with our free airport shuttle service. Our great location also places you just five miles from Churchill Downs and three miles from Six Flags!

Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon!!!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2011

a friend booked us a room w/ their 'perks' card- glad i didn't pay for it. it seemed nice at first nice lobby/staff seemed pleasant. once we got settled into the room we kept noticing more unclean things. we had already gotten comfortable and it was getting late so we didn't bother alerting staff or try to switch rooms. things noticed - DUST. there was dust on numerous surfaces. since this place is 'off the beaten track' a bit we had assumed the room just hadn't been used in awhile. then we noticed finger prints on the full length mirror and hand smudges all over the back of the door, a shirt sticker on the telephone/table (the clear stickers w/ L-L-L-L written down them) - just an overall lack of attention to detail by the cleaning staff. the drain cap was also missing in the bathroom sink. this wasn't a big deal as i didn't need to fill the sink up, but just tacky.
the next day the room did look a bit better - so i will give them that.
no free breakfast - bummer! - they have their own restraunt so they're not going to feed you for free :)
i didn't eat there but apparently someone enjoyed the ribs there as the next day i happened to park next to some rib bones in the parking lot...bleh..
on the plus side - the beds seemed clean/ were comfortable/ i didn't hear noise from other rooms or the hallway/the ac worked..

all-in-all...will stay elsewhere next time.
