At the last minute, we booked a room at this hotel and cancelled our reservations at a much more expensive hotel just down the street. For a savings of nearly $100 a night, we decided to give it a try. Like others here have said, the room was clean but no frills. The worst thing about this hotel was the... More

We stayed at this location from 9/15/14 to 9/21/14 and really loved the proximity to 4th street live where you can find some really exciting mix of good restaurants and lounges. We have toddler who loved the short walk to the riverfront and the parks. The rooms were spacious and clean for an econolodge. If I were to give a... More

Clean linens, comfy bed, hot shower with good pressure. Only downside: The (free) wifi was intolerably slow. I ended up going to a Starbucks on the next block to surf the web. Also, breakfast was kinda lame, but I guess predictably so—the classic Continental.

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.
