Excellent choice in my opinion for a short stay. Easy drive to airport and U of L and great rate. There are several restaurants very close; 2 Chinese and 1 Mexican are within a 1 minute walk and there's a great Korean place just 1 minute down the road by car; walking might be 20 minutes. Room was clean excluding...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a nice review. The restaurants out front are very good. When they start cooking we all get hungry. Most of our guest really like the wood floors. They are much more sanitary than carpet. Our superior king room is the largest that we offer with a large work area, microfridge,...

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend visit to Louisville. We were blown away by the customer service and the quality of the room. Both ladies at the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean, attractive, smelled nice, and the shower was roomy and clean. We'll definitely stay here again when we come...

Despite the neighborhood seeming kind of icky, and a smell of rotten meat in the air, this motel was very nice. Looked very freshly renovated, rooms were very nice and smelled good.

Thank you for writing a nice review however I am a bit concerned. We never charge for extra supplies. There is an optional safe in the room and if it is not used we will gladly reverse the $1.59 fee.

I have stayed in this hotel several times in the past. As always, clean and well managed. The front desk people are always friendly and I recommend others to consider staying at this location. It is conveniently located within a short drive to Bardstown Rd where there are several great restaurants.

If you aren't fussy and need to stay close to the fairgrounds, airport, event center this is the most reasonable priced property. Rooms have all been upgraded, grounds are very well cared for and staff is very friendly. Very good beds if you like a firm mattress. Let me be clear. This is an old well worn property.

Had an issue with my booking (my fault!) and Kimberle assisted in spectacular fashion to a resolution I'm very happy with. She even provided coffee! The room is clean and comfy. Would absolutely stay here again on my way through Louisville.

For the price, it was just right. Clean, simple and all the bare necessities: clean linen, internet, desk to work at, TV...a quiet place to get some sleep. Staff was very friendly. Okay for a business trip.
