not bad. but could be better

My wife and I came to Louisville to see a concert at the Expo Five. The hotel was only about 15 minutes from the venue which was nice after a night of drinking and listening to music. We checked in to the hotel around 12:30am. The staff was helpful and friendly. They referred a local pizza place that delivered until 5am (Spinnelies). We booked a single king bed room. It was supposed to be non smoking, but of course we were stuck with a smoking room. The room had no refrigerator or microwave which was disappointing. I think the bed was the best part of the stay. Overall I felt it was a little overpriced, but it was in a convenient location which is a.plus.

Low cost - good location w/ easy parking

The room was recently renovated and exceeded expectations, but don't expect a cozy lobby or any amenities. Location is good and price is almost half the hotels accross the street. As expected amenities were spartan at best (breakfast was poor and not a lot of immediate options in the area & fitness equipment was dated and not working.) A good easy option if you need to stay downtown and price is a major consideration.

Not a bad stay at all

Me and the fiancee used this trip just to get away for the 4th of July weekend. We were just 2 blocks away from 4th Street Live which was an awesome time! Room was clean and price wasn't bad for the location compared to other hotels around.

It was comfortable and convenient. The rooms were clean and we were in walking distance of everything we were going to do downtown.
