Howard Johnson Express Inn / Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Living in the town, 45 miles from Louisville airport, we often see accidents on I-65 and in the worst case, we may miss flight. The best option is stay there and relax night before departure after dining out. This is our second stay. No more early morning drive, no other facility. We don't require gorgeous hotel for 10-12 hour stay.

The Hojo was ok and they had all the amneties except a fridge no microwave is no big deal but if i'm gonna stay more than 2 nights i expect a fridge. breakfast should have been replenished better than it was . i have no plans to stay at any more Hojo's in the future

Worn out hotel. Minimal breakfast choices--pastries and dry cereal. Weak coffee. Good location near airport. $ too much for the cigarette-burn on the old bedspread, dated carpeting, bad patch job in bathroom. But good tv, wireless, and air conditioner. Quiet.

what I can say is that for my experience with the hotel it was really good for one night stay 'cause I was there for the youth camp and it was amazing that i could meet some of our campers there too but the only negative thing i had was just about the cigarette smell but I'm not sure if we didn't picked the right one

I can't believe I have to enter 50 characters! met expectations. met expectations. met expectations. met expectations. met expectations. met expectations. met expectations.

It was quite perfect for what I needed. My daughter and grandbaby would have liked a little bit more, like a pool.

Decent stay but tried to up charge me the following week

It Was Greatttttttttt,,,, we had a early FLIGHT out an the STAFF was GREAT!!! the LOCATION great for early flights ! we stay here each time the family comes to Louisville the rooms are great everything about this hotel is the best for our family we would not stay anywhere else Thank You very much for making our HOLIDAYS BETTER!!!!!

There was a sign that said "If your room is not acceptable, tell us immediately and we will move you or give you a refund". I should have taken this more seriously. There are many other hotels in this area, choose one of them.

Could have been cleaner. For staying almost a week no clean sheets. Towels were very thin.

There was continual noise from the hallway, the room was dirty and poorly kept. The free breakfast was not available until 8:00 well after I had to leave at 7:00 and then it would have been cereal and coffee.

This is by far the best value for the location! If you are flying-in, just call the front desk when you are ready to step out of the airport, and a shuttle will come pick you up within minutes! Breakfast is simple, yet enough to get you started. One thing to be aware of is that the hotel is within reasonable walking distance to restaurants, but sidewalks are not always present in this rather active traffic area. Buy you always have the option to have your food delivered.

Fine for business travel. Clean room. Breakfast was very sparse, but the price was right.

The staff was Very nice, friendly and willing to please. Almost like being at home. In spite of distance from where I needed to go, if I had my car I would stay again if I got a better rate. I would prefer a 3 or 4 star hotel for the price paid.

The staff was very nice. We loved the availability of shuttle service to and from hotel and that we could leave our care there for free.

This hotel was Great, However, a couple of small items can make it over the top. For example, an outlet to charge cell phones and tablets on the desk would have been nice. In addition, a small refrigerator in the room would also help. This hotel has a Great location it just needs to move up a step into the modern generation. I had a Great Stay, Crissty

This was a nice room located in a perfect area. Not real close to resturaunts but they are only a few miles away

kind of have to worry about a hotel that has a sign posting the penalty for armed robbery at the entrance. A half a cup of coffee sitting in the room when we first entered after check-in. Dog droppings in a laundry room by the elevator. Walls so thin that you could hear every word being said next door. The worst "breakfast" ever - donuts, white bread and sugary cerials; except for a few pieces of fruit, no nutrition.

Good hotel on a budget and very close to the Louisville Expo Center.

Check in went fine. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I had a room on the first floor a mere few steps from the lobby. The room was clean and had all the usual amenities. I found out that night my room backed up to the mini dining area and at 0500 the tv was turned on and a steady chorus of banging noises kept me awake. The bed was VERY comfortable and made watching the 10 channels of tv pleasant. The breakfast was a huge disappointment with what seemed like stale bread,
