Upon check in we were informed there were over 40 dogs in the hotel, and that the pool "was very cold" due to the heater being broken. The beds were hard and sloped to the middle. It was extremely loud during our stay. When we contacted the from desk we were told "there are alot of cheerleaders in the hotel...

10 cars in the parking lot at 3 pm on Sunday should've been my clue that this was not the place to stay. The staff at the front desk was nice. The carper and the wallpaper in the room and bathroom were old and stained. The bad sheets were stained. They were washed, but should have never been put back...

This hotel was very clean and quiet in a great location to get to anywhere in Louisville. Staff was friendly and helpful. Best beds I ever slept on. Definitely will come back again. Had a continental breakfast that was terrific. Hot coffee 24 hours.

We stayed at the hotel with our 220 member marching band in preparation for KMEA state championship competition at Papa Johns. The staff were all so nice to us! They somehow kept the breakfast bar stocked and all our kids were able to eat with no problems. The hotel has been remodeled and I have no complaints about the facility....

Where to begin. Was it the fact it was very old and needed remodeling. Or the fact the rugs in the room and the hall were filthy. The sheets were the only thing that was clean. The room darkening shades had holes in them. The sheers were filthy dirty. The air conditioner was set to 63 and it wouldn't come...

This was a Holiday Inn previously and a pretty worn down one at that. They have done some tidying and it looks like some remodel is on the way but they have a ways to go. The staff was terrific! Very friendly and accommodating. The wifi works but is a little sleepy at times. Continental breakfast but a nice spread...

My room smelled heavily of mildew as did the main lobby. The things in my room, including sheets, were damp. My phone notified me that it had moisture (didn't know there was such a notification). The front desk gal agreed there was a moisture issue. Could be an okay place if they fix this issue.

Service staff was friendly, but the room was not worth the price paid. Very dated, musty rooms. Cleaned each day but just didn't feel "clean". Small bathrooms. Sub par breakfast.
