We stayed here so that we could walk to an event at the KFC Yum Center. For that purpose it was fine. The room was a standard discount room, but clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. The hotel staff was not friendly at all- no Hello, Welcome or Thank you. The breakfast was so-so. We had booked an accessible... More

It's an Econo Lodge, you know what you're going to get with it really. It's never going to be a high end experience in an Econo Lodge but the location and price set this place apart as there are very few budget options in Louisville. The location - it's just a couple of blocks from the 4th Street area which... More

Hotel was clean, and bed comfortable and very conveniently located for the ironman Louisville. Walking distance to lots of area restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was only $5 compared to other area hotels. Would definitely stay again. Loved the fact that I did not hear any noise from outside when trying to sleep and that the air conditioner... More

This hotel is 2 blocks away from Fourth Street Live! Room was on 2nd floor, was not expecting a 4 star hotel so my expectations were low but room felt clean and had no issues. Very inexpensive hotel compaired to others in the area. $5 for parking. Room felt recently painted or updated.

We (two couples) decided to take a one night trip to Louisville to see the Bats play. All the dowtown hotels that I usually use were booked so we finally booked at the Econo Lodge downtown. The room we stayed in (215) was fine. Bed was comfortable and clean, had a fridge and microwave, coffee pot (with coffee) and flat... More

I understand that we were in a smoking room (it was all that was left when we booked), but the smell was disgusting (I expected a little bit of smoke smell but this was terrible) as was the room. There was red stuff in the sink (my husband thought I threw up in it at first...maybe nail polish?), the refrigerator... More

As the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for". For my needs, this hotel worked well, as I was happy to spend one-half the cost of the fancier hotels just a block or so away. For others who are more sensitive to cleanliness and extra services, there are perhaps better choices. On the plus side, this hotel's location... More

I stayed at the Econo Lodge in downtown Louisville for 2 nights and found it to be the best value around. My room was clean and quiet, the bed was comfortable, and the towels were excellent.
