This motel was very close to Louisville Slugger Museum and other downtown attractions. It appeared to have been recently updated and clean. There was quite a bit of noise from neighboring rooms in the middle of the night which was a bit unnerving.

Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Stayed at this hotel with my fiancee for a trip to Louisville. The location is great and staff were friendly. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. We found a great price, and we were happy with our stay. I would stay there again if I was in Louisville.

If you are looking for just a place close to the Yum center to sleep and don't need any extras, this is the place. It was clean and comfy but nothing fancy. Breakfast had enough variety to get you by for a quick free bite to eat in the morning. Employees were nice and accommodating .... One thing to keep...

My biggest issue was that the room reeked of smoke. I should have insisted on a different room but I was so tired I just made it work. Note to reader, INSIST on non-smoking if you want it. Right in the heart of downtown Louisville. Lots of restaurants and pubs a short walk away as well as the YMCA, which...

My sister and I were traveling an hour to Louisville for a concert at the KFC Yum Center and wanted to make a day of it. We also wanted to eat at Guy Fieris Smokehouse beforehand and this Econolodge is in the perfect location for both. Fourth Street Live is a hot spot for good restaurants and nightlife in Louisville...

Friendly staff, gave me options for floor levels while checking in and offered to call a taxi while checking out. Rooms are nice and cozy. AC/heater is old, have to turn it on/off manually. But other than that, it was a quiet nice stay. Unrelated, but Louisville water tastes great btw.

Very clean. While my pictures show a room with carpeting, most rooms actually have a fake wood floor. Bed and pillow were very comfortable. Good TV selection. Internet was slow for my first two nights, but very speedy the next two. Sometimes a hiccup with the connection. The front desk staff was very pleasant. Location is very good if you...

Would stay here again. I'm typically hesitant staying at hotel chains that are lower priced. This place was fine. It is clean, which is always my biggest concern. It's not perfect, you'll find chipped furniture or something broken (my bathroom door was cracked and the vent on the heater was broken for example) but theses things are not deal breakers....
