I love working with Jodie Donahue. She is always so helpful and makes sure that all of our needs are met. She certainly takes pride in her work and the hotel itself. She has always gone the extra mile for us.

We spent one night at the Holiday Inn. It was fantastic, the staff was so helpful in restaurant suggestions, activities, and general promotion of Louisville. They shuttled us to Churchill Downs and then picked us up hours later. Nice clean rooms and friendly staff.

We stayed here only one night before flying out early the next morning. My only disappointment was that we were in a room with 'queen' beds. We had requested a king but weren't able to get it. The room was very spacious and clean on the plus side! I have no complaints as it was clean, big and had all... More

Unable to retrieve my reservation although I have All the papers and numbers with me. Because of that they got me waiting for 40 minutes or more instead of giving me the room and do whatever they need to fix their problems. Plenty of hotels near by. Do not go to them and being treated like that

This hotel was in a great location. We were close to Churchill, Megacaverns and Wagners (our Louisville, Kentucky favorites). Parking was a little tough in early evening. Rooms were clean, pool was very small, but I would still recommend this hotel.

Hotel is just off the main road that goes by there. Very easy to miss the turn, because it sits behind another hotel and you can't see it very well. Check in was excellent, staff... More
