The design of the local roadways makes it difficult to get to this hotel from the expressway (be sure to review Google Maps carefully before you go). Leaving the hotel and getting back on the Watterson Expressway is no problem and is easy. The hotel is older (built before the roads were expanded and the left turn was eliminated from... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was basic but good. The pool is outdoors, so was not available during our April stay. Some of the decorating is a bit dated, but I don't care about that.

The only reason you should ever go to this hotel is to eat at the restaurant that is attached to it. It is pretty much the only place to eat around there anyways but the food was great. Beds comfortable but is pointless due to all the noise from highway and hallways and other rooms and old old old elevator... More

Arrived in Louisville on a red eye flight, needed a place to sleep. Chose this place because it was near the airport and offered a free shuttle. What they did not tell us was the shuttle stops at midnight. A $15 cab ride brought us to a sad, dreary looking building. Of the three towels provided, the first was smeared... More

The hotel is older but well kept. It was close to everything we were interested in, Within 5 miles of several awesome restaurants, downtown, & the Zoo. The only issue we had was at the lounge. We ended our day at the lounge and wanting to try a local bourbon we ordered a Manhattan. The bartender's response was "What's a... More

I used the Priceline "Name your own price" feature to book a room at this hotel. I selected a 3 star hotel and this is what was chosen for me. When I arrived the lobby looked nice, a little dated, but not bad. The lady at the counter was extremely pleasant! That was all that was good... When you walk... More

The Best Western Airport East/Expo is an older hotel that has had some remodeling but shows its age a bit. Its location is great for the zoo and other surrounding attractions. Newer traffic patterns create a bit of a nuisance accessing their entrance/parking area. Overall was pretty good for $72. The free breakfast was better than most and the attached... More

The hotel lobby is very nice and I found the staff to be pleasant. The room was ok. I thought very clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower could be better. There was not a lot of pressure plus there was a hot and cold knob that needed to be adjusted. It's an older hotel, but really much cleaner... More

Got ripped off at $119 a night - hallways smelled like mold - Stayed in 143 and there is nothing nice about this hotel. Avoid it if you can. I found $64 rates online and the front desk told me there was no such thing. It appears they were at capacity so they raised the rates to rip off traveler... More
