Positive Reviews

Front Desk Staff Is on the Ball

Several people remarked that they really had great staff interactions. Not only is the front desk knowledgeable about the area they were also able to provide directions to locations around the hotel.

Location Convenient for Louisville Airport

Perfect Budget Hotel

According to visitors, based on what they paid, they felt the value was pretty decent. Being a budget hotel, they didn't have huge expectations so for those people just looking for a place to rest, this no frills hotel is ideal.

Negative Reviews

Small Sums It Up

A few guests remarked that the rooms here aren't very large. So if you're expecting to spread out, you'll be sadly mistaken. Others point out that even the breakfast offerings are small. You won't find a lot of options available aside from breakfast cereal and a pastry or two.

Rundown Feeling with Poor Housekeeping

Visitors remarked that the hotel could use some sprucing up. They cite issues such as bloodstains on sheets, cigarette burns in comforters and musty odors. In short, the hotel simply isn't as cleanly as it possibly could be according to travelers.

Maintenance Needed for Malfunctions

A few guests remarked that there are a number of maintenance issues in the rooms. A few problems included TV that didn't work, toilets that leak and toilets that continued to run after being flushed. Essentially, the hotel could use a real refurbishing.
