Very helpful staff meet Oh my expectations ! Easy access

The area around the hotel looked sketchy, over all it was a great hotel!!!

excellant hotel to stay at, and very close to all activites

Decent place to stay. They charge extra for the standard hotel breakfast buffet ($9) but someone said they are trying to be more upscale.

I am a petite female business woman and booked the Holiday Inn at $321.44 a night because it was in a good area. I prepaid and had a confirmation number. I did not get to stay at the hotel because they were overbooked. They rebooked me at a Best Western in a bad neighborhood. I couldn't believe they were turning me away. I cried in the lobby. I stressed to them I was by myself and they did not care. It was total disbelief that they turned me away. Then, when I got to the Best Western they had cancelled my reservation there. I would have kept looking for a reservation had they not given me a confirmation. Everything in the good area was booked when I got there expecting to have a room at the Holiday Inn. Unbelievable. How can they do this to people?

Everything was very nice. However, when I checked pricing for the following weekend, the per day rate was $100.00 higher the weekend that I stayed. I have a hard time understanding why the rates can change that much from weekend to weekend.

The location was great for us. The room was clean and comfortable. Nothing going on in the lounge / restaurant.....Price was a little high for what it was, but sometimes you have to pay a little more for CLEAN.

Great spot all in order. Only problem is finding it from airport; otherwise nothing was less than superb. e3

There wasn't anything beyond what I expected, but for the most part, the hotel did meet all expectations. The staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were very clean and well arranged, very close to airport and Churchill Downs. I wish there were more food options, or that the hotel restaurant at least opened for lunch.

The hotel was very clean. the room was nicely decorated. The pool was a bit small. (The plaque on the wall said the max # of people allowed in the pool at one time was 5!!) Breakfast is not included and pricey.

The heating unit in our room sounded like a helicopter was landing on the nightstand. We had to be moved at 3AM. The staff was very apologetic and offered free breakfast (which I already had) but could not offer room credit or any other comps for the ruined night of sleep since we booked on [...]

This Holiday Inn is new and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Location is pretty central, with quick access to 65 and local attractions as well. The bed was comfortable and I liked the digital thermostat for temperature control. A microwave and refrigerator in the room was an added bonus that was very convenient. The only negatives I would submit: There was a chair in the room that I wish had been a more comfortable style and the bathroom door had to be propped open (closed automatically or on a spring of some sort).

The new Airport Holiday Inn had about as many smiling and hard working employees as I have seen in a while. Someone was always polishing something, and I believe the room quality was the best I've seen in a Holiday Inn. The desk staff was exceptional. Probably the only negative thing I had to say is that they seemed a bit short on room cleaning staff. It wasn't that the room wasn't always done right, but on my five night stay it wasn't cleaned a couple of times until five in the afternoon, and I was always out of the room by nine in the morning so the room was available for cleaning. But overall, a pleasant experience.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with the charge for breakfast. We are a full service Holiday Inn and complimentary breakfast is not an amenity we provide. Holiday Inn Express does include breakfast with their stay. My apologies for any confusion. Thanks for writing a review. Kindest Regards, Brooke Potter, Director of Sales
