Dirty, but Memorable

I didn't expect much, but had I expected creepy, this hotel would have exceeded my expectations! Check-in was easy, staff was nice enough, though I didn't interact with them more than a minute. They forgot to include shampoo, etc in the room (and I know they provide it since friends in the other room had some), the floor was sticky and so I had to wear shoes, the comforter and blanket looked unwashed (I only slept with the sheets so had to turn off the air so as not to freeze and then the room was stuffy - the least of two evils in my opinion), bedding had cigarette burns, the non-smoking room smelled like stale smoke, there was an old condom wrapper left in the room, and curly hairs on the toilet and a couple of the towels (draw your own conclusions). The parking lot had old syringes, roaches scattered in the litter when walking outside, and groups of bikers were loud until the wee hours of the morning. Overall, we just laughed at how awful it was, but I would never stay there again and had I needed to say any longer than the night or had my kid with me I would have left right away.

A short drive away is the "NuLu" section of Louisville - a lot of shops and restaurants - great food and nightlife if that's your deal. The downtown sections wasn't as busy but afforded beautiful views of the bridges and river.

Stayed for the Marathon

I ran the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and stayed here the night before. I was put in a very quiet corner of the hotel and there was breakfast opened for the runners at 4:30. The staff was very friendly. And the beds were very comfy. It was a very quick drive to the start of the marathon.

Do not stay here if you want to sleep

The general experience was pretty terrible. There was a security guard stationed outside the hotel but it took quite a while for him to shut down the insanely loud motorcycle revving that went on for quite a while in the middle of the night. This happened both nights I stayed. The room wasn't horrible but the chairs were both stained and paint was peeling off the wall in the bathroom. The highlight was the breakfast. The biscuits and gravy were actually pretty tasty.

Caution!!

The hotel sits immediately off the highway. It looks a bit dingy from the outside. The lobby was not too bad. We were initially given a third floor room - fortunately I went upstairs to check it out before bringing my bags up. A scummy elevator took me up to a fairly disgusting hallway. The key they gave me would not open the door. I went back to the desk and they moved us to a first floor room - at least we didn't need to get on the elevator again. At first glance the room was not too bad given the price. It was reasonably clean and comfortable and we had a fairly restful night. In the morning I got up, took a shower and got mostly dressed when my room mate got up. She went into the bathroom to use the toilet. When she flushed it Immediately flowed over. She tried to contain it with towels but it ran hard and fast. We called the desk. The person at the desk said she was the only staff person there and could not help us. The water continued to run fast into the room. We literally threw on clothes, grabbed our belongings and got out as fast as we could, the water continuing to run quickly into the room. We suggested that the desk clerk might want to comp the room. She said she could not do that since you had sold us the tickets. So we left. How would you rate a place like that??

Clean Bed

What you see is what you get. Clean bed, shower and toilet. Room size OK. Ambiance was not important as I only was in the room to sleep.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buses are available to the downtown area and the airport. But you do have to do research to find the correct place to wait.
