Recent guest reviews

Was old and just all around not pleasant . Counters and furniture was sticky and the shower was decrepit

Nice budget hotel with friendly staff. Allowed us to leave our vehicle for the 8 days we would be traveling and it was safe and sound upon return. The staff set up a cab to pick us up fir a very early flight, and cab company did not show up ( no fault of the hotel). Called the company and they sent a regular cab that we barely crammed ourselves and the luggage into, but got to our gate on time. Again, no reflection on the hotel. The beds were comfortable and room clean . Would stay there again. Simpler to get there if you used I-65, as Mapquest tells you to than I-264 S that we took to avoid downtown traffic.

While I did not have high expectations for this facility, I was quite disappointed when I arrived at the hotel to check in that the extra rollaway bed was not available, both because they had none left and because the room I had selected had no room for such a bed. This is despite the room description very clearly stating that rollaway beds were available. I had been counting on the availability of this bed and I was sorely tempted to find another hotel that could accommodate us. But given the lateness of the hour and because I had children I needed to get to sleep, I pushed on. As expected, the room did not exceed my expectations. It was small and clearly only minimally kept up. The kids did not want to use the bathroom, for example. Luckily we were there just one night, needing a place to stay when bad traffic conditions forced us to stay overnight in Louisville.

Very old and run down needs a total redo Staff was friendly enough but the hotel needs a total remodel even the curtains we once white are now black.

Worst hotel to stay in , rugs are stained, ceiling is stained, curtains are filthy, bed is junk, cockroach running up the wall did it for me. Had 2 rooms for 2 nights and left after the first night, could not do it for 2 nights it was the worst stay ever. I believe I should be refunded for both nights and both rooms, just the worst stay ever.

I had a very clean room at a very low price. The staff was very helpful and overall this was a good value. Great lighting in the parking lot meant my car was safe. Somewhat basic accomodation but it was a low cost stay.

good location for fairground activities. Airport activities early in the morning can be heard in the room.

Very old, dirty, hasn't been updated in years, staff was unprofessional. Stayed for derby and the price was not worth it.

I expect a little more from a Days Inn. Attending a big show at the Expo center so the location was convenient. The room was tiny and dated, clean enough, but well used. The door opened up to the parking lot and the cold breeze made it hard to keep the room warm. The breakfast was less than average. Luckily I did not spend a lot of time as I was working and only needed the place to sleep.

The worst! Fleas . stinks. Dirty. Noisy. Bad.horrible

Basic hotel, room was a little dated but was clean. Good location, right of the exit of interstate 65. Can be almost anywhere in Louisville in 10 minutes.

My wife and I only stayed one night. It was a little small, but it didn't matter to us.

We booked this motel based on a three star rating. In reality it should have been a one star at best. The first non-smoking room smelled like cigarettes, maybe from the cigarette burn hole in the blanket. The tv did not work.So they gave us the room next door. This room was better, but I did find a cockroach on the wall the next mourning. This motel is old and in need of an upgrade or a thorough steam cleaning at least. Upond checking out, I noticed the day clerk was wearing a well worn tee shirt with several holes. You shoul avoid this one.

The hotel is in a nice location off the highway, with a wonderfully friendly staff. However, the room was dirty and the bed and pillows were horribly uncomfortable. Just pay a little more and go elsewhere.

At first I was concerned about the outside appearance, however the accommodations were okay. The exterior of the hotel was worn and could use updating or refreshing. The room was clean but worn. It has seen better days. We did not utilize any of the amenities, like the continental breakfast. Parking was good. The location of the hotel was close to I-65 and the Expo Center for convenient access and there were a variety of restaurants and gas stations close by, some a short walk across the parking lot. Overall, I was satisfied with the stay.

room was not anything special, the front desk clerk was very nice and helpful. however since there was a convention in town they raised the rates up on other guests, I would have never paid $79 for that room.

Overall we were very disappointed with this Days Inn location. The room had water damage and stains on the walls and furniture. The non-smoking room still smelled of smoke. There was a bug hanging out in the mirror by the sink. The bedding was thin. Plus, At 4am we were woken up by people yelling in the parking lot and pounding on room doors. We didn't check out the breakfast because we just wanted to get out of there! We've stayed at several discount motels before, but this one didn't even meet minimum standards.

CLEAN ENOUGH, BUT ROOM NEEDS LOTS OF IMPROVEMENT. REALLY OLD, SOFT MATTRESS ALMOST SITS ON THE FLOOR. ROOMS NEED UPDATED. PAINT JOB REPAIRS DON'T MATCH. TV REMOTE NOT WORKING. FOR $75 WITH TAXES, DO NOT HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS.

suppose to be a non smoking room, strong stale cigarette smoke smell. continental breakfast was coffee. paper thin walls and ceilings heard everything, stomping, slamming doors, oh yes and must mention the yapping dog in room 135 that was left un-attended at 12:30 am till about little after 2am. Was not happy with my stay and the picture they post looks real nice and cozy. WRONG, must be a picture of when they first opened. I was deceived and Im sure I wont be the last.

Ok value A little hard to get to from north. Staff was friendly Safe clean place
