Came up to go hunting and needed a place to stay. Didn't make reservations, but found this hotel on Google. I loved it! Everyone was helpful and nice. Rooms were clean and up to date. If your in town, stay here. Good rates and rooms!

This is as good as it gets for this category of motel. Personnel are accommadating and pleasant. Rooms are clean and exterior is well kept. Restaurants and entertainment areas is only a short walk. I visit Louisville at least twice a year and I will be returning here for all my future stays!

This was our third stay at econolodge downtown. It is pretty much the perfect spot to base yourself for Louisville. It's two blocks from 4th street live entertainment precinct and the visitors centre. Also within walking distance, (cab, bus or free trolley) to so many great bars and restaurants. It is motel style accommodations but it is clean and spacious.... More

Everything exceeded my expectations. Service was excellent. Pete was extremely helpful. Room was very clean. Only the internet was kind of slow and sometimes cuts you off. Excellent value. Breakfast was great.

If you just need a place to sleep on the cheap, this will work. It is not exactly a nice place, room was on first floor near stairs so we mostly had the curtains shut, otherwise everyone would walk by and look in. It was nice to have the fridge in the room. The bathroom could use a good deep... More

I stayed at Econo Lodge in Downtown Louisville, Kentucky. I was a little wary when I booked, but I was quite pleasantly surprised. The hotel is located just a few short blocks from the 4th street eateries, so it was easy to dine at a number of wonderful restaurants. Also, for those who like eating in their rooms, there's a...
