We spent a night in Louisville on route to Nashville. The place was clean and in a good location and we felt safe to overnight there. Good bang for the buck. Louisville is charming and we would've spent a couple of nights at this Econo Lodge without issues.

Nice and clean rooms with all basic ammonites. Staff is great. The water river front is waking distance and also Walking distance from 4th street live. All the restaurants at the 4th street are great options for food. I had great time there and i would recommend everyone who is traveling with budget.

Stayed for 3 nights last weekend. It your standard hotel. Nothing fancy. The continental breakfast was good. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The location is GREAT. There are many attractions within walking distance and if you are driving, there is close access to I-65. Very clean. Very reasonably priced.

I booked this hotel for a two-night stay for me and two of my friends. We're pretty easy to please. We want a clean and relatively quiet room with air conditioning and a television that works with a few decent channels. We got that and more from this hotel. The beds were comfortable and the pillows extra soft. The air... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and found it a good alternative to more expensive places. My room was clean and the bed was quite comfortable, two must-haves. A small microwave and fridge were also there. The breakfast was pretty spartan but hey, you could get more breakfast variety elsewhere and have to pay more. It would be... More
