King Size Bed

I actually expected less from something named ECONO. Although it was $5 to park each day, they let us park for free for the check-out afternoon while we were about town. Satff was friendly and helpful. Made effort to have our 3 rooms close to each other. Appreciated the hair blower.

Downtown Louisville concert

The picture did more justice then what the room looked like. The bath had a shower that was patched around it's perimeter because of decay. The wash basin was in the outer bedroom area. The baseboard moldings were patched and painted over without sanding. There were fly's buzzing around in the room when we checked in. We had to pay $5.00 for daily parking which was not stated before checking in.

DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL !!!

This hotel is frightening. We lost our entire investment because we refused to stay there. The paint is peeling off the building. All of the room doors open to the outside, and one door looked like it had been ripped off its hinges and propped up while another looked like it had had a gang tag blasted off it. . As we pulled up to the hotel, the police were making some sort of "bust" right in front of the hotel. We expressed our concerns to the staff. He simply said, "This is a prepaid room. "

Bourbon Trail Trip

This hotel's location could not be better. It is a few blocks' walk from essentially any restaurant/nightlife you could think of. The room was appropriately appointed for the price, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
