Good location, but too close to UofL

The hotel itself was very old, but clean. there were a lot of college students. they were loud but the hoel room was sound proof (sort of). So, the overall experience wasn't bad. I would stay again bases in the location and price.

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.

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.

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

Worst EVER!!!!

I wish I could post pictures of how nasty this hotel is!!! I was expecting a nice clean place but instead I SAW PLASTER FALLING FROM THE CEILING IN THE BATHROOM, DIRTY TUB, BROKEN PLASTER COVERED UP BY CARPET, AND A BLOOD STAINED MATTRESS/BOX SPRING (ROOMM 106). MOVED FROM ONE ROOM TO ANOTHER BECAUSE THE TUB AND BATHROOM SINK WERE PLUGGING UP AND ANTS.

Good, basic lodging for the night.

Nothing fancy about this location, but it is located right off of I65, just a few miles south of downtown. Room was clean, and desk staff was friendly. I only needed a basic room for the night, and this location met my expectations. Would stay again.

Just Ok

As a single female, I was very upset that they put me right next to the stairs and the elevator. I was quit uncomfertable. I made it through.
