Good for the price

For the money it was an okay stay. We were only there one night and didn't have to stay in the hotel much. When we entered there was a STRONG smell of smoke in the lobby. The decor is very dated, but our room was clean. The pool is VERY small so it's not great for kids. While we were in the pool we read the rules and it stated "no more than 5 (Yes, five) people in the pool at one time. The hot tub is even smaller. The staff was efficient and friendly. Breakfast was a hot buffet, but very limited on choices. Overall, it fit our needs for this trip, but I wouldn't want to vacation there.

Nice little secret

Very pleased with the hotel, room was VERY cool and that was nice to walk into on a hot summer day. Smelled clean and the bed was very comfortable with comfortable pillows. Breakfast was good. Restaurant needed help. They were not able to keep up at all. It wasn't even that busy at the time we were there. Just while we were there, they ran out potatoes, sausage, hash, fruit, coffee, creamer and cups for juice. Staff very nice and helpful, would go again!!!

Super Smokey

Hotel wasn't too bad. It was extremely smokey when we got off of the hotel elevator and the hall was supposed to be non-smoking. It's supposed to be 3 star but more like 2. There was hair in the bathroom floor and the fridge made lots of noise.

Quick Overnight

We only stayed at the hotel for one night but it definitely met our needs. Positives: huge room, plenty of room for 5 people. Nice beds. Swimming pool, although small worked well for my 3 and 5 year olds. Good location. Negatives: bathroom was run down. Generally speaking the hotel showed a lot of wear and tear. Would definitely stay there again!

Good value, yet slightly grungy

While it's a solid value and location, they could do well to fix numerous details that are slipping on this property. For exanple the dim lighting in the bathroom and hallways(is dingy dark the new green?. My room had older towels more gray than white, and the new TV box did not match the provided channel info sheet. Yet this explains the great price.

great room for the price

Good location about 15 min from the airport. Couldn't find any restaurants nearby but the hotel restaurant was OK although the fryer was broken so we couldn't get any french fries. Hot tub was WAY too hot.

Quality Experience

I was in Louisville for the Breeder's Cup horse races. The hotel was conveniently located from the airport and Churchill Downs was accessible by freeway from the hotel. However, a rental car was necessary. No shuttle from the motel was available to access the airport. The restaurant was more than adequate and the hours convenient. A complimentary eggs and bacon (etc.) breakfast was also a bonus. My room was large and comfortable with the usual amenities. It was clean and the bed had a lovely duvet and sheets covered the blanket.....a huge plus!! Staff was friendly but seemed overwhelmed with a full house which affected their demeanor. All in all, my experience at the Envoy was comfortable and in all ways a fine operation.
