We stayed for a week room 114 non-smoking. In town for cow show at expo center, just down the road. You can you the main gate or go around and use the side gates which we do. The hotel is older and rooms are dated but clean, no funny smell either. The outside was neat and well kept, yard was... More

Checked in late and was quickly processed, unfortunately I received a smoking room, I called the front desk and was told, no problem. So went back down and they quickly changed my room. The only issue I really had is that the non-smoking rooms are on the highway side and windows and walls seem to be pretty thin so it... More

Late night check-in was okay. Awkward taking 5 pieces of luggage upstairs to 2nd floor. Room was okay, but the smell of stale/old cigarette smoke was quite evident. Bathroom floor (max. 12sq.ft.) was not thoroughly cleaned, but I was overly tired after midnight to notify the front desk. Bed would've been comfortable w/out the waterproof mattress pad. Morning front desk... More

Apprehensive at first but pleasantly surprised. It's definitely not a new motel but we couldn't have asked for any kinder employees. Our aunt is 85 but still very independent and had booked her frist ever cruise as well as all the hotels and flights. She booked one night at the Rodeway Inn because it was closer to the airport and... More

Not the worst, not the best. The location is not great, close to the airport and on a busy highway. However, anyone staying here could figure this out before choosing this hotel. The property is not very well maintained. The room was OK but not great. It was a non-smoking room but there was a smell of stale cigarette smoke.... More

I travel for a living, and I stay in hotels all across the country. I stay in expensive ones, and inexpensive ones, budget priced ones, and four star, depending on the business that I have and the location. Truthfully, this is one of the worst, if not THE worst, I have stayed in. While it is true that it IS... More

Very basic hotel that was recently updated. We were surprised that we did not hear the airplanes, being so close to the airport. Although this hotel was overpriced due to everything being sold out due to so many tournaments in town, we still slept better than in most hotels. There were issues with our room smelling like smoke, and since... More

I stayed over Thursday through Saturday nights over Memorial Day. Total price was around $69 per night, including all taxes. I didn't have any problems at all with the room- everything was very clean and everything worked. The room didn't have a refrigerator/microwave, but the TV worked fine, and the Internet wi-fi worked well. Two of us stayed in this... More

I never like to read reviews because you just don't know what to believe. This is my first, only because I felt I owed it to the next guy looking to book a room in the Rodeway Inn in Louisville Ky. There was a convention in town and we were looking to see our son's baseball game. We live far... More

Sure I was down in Louisville for the Derby. Of course I know that everything is expensive here during this weekend of excess. But 450 bucks for a room that costs 60 bucks on any other night? THAT's HIGHWAY ROBBERY! And they didn't realize that I have a voice and I'm really ticked off. Something has to be done about... More

We are sorrry that you fill that way, but most of the people who comes for a national events are aware that what to expect to pay for Derby. Every person has a choice . They could sat 5star hotel and pay $2000.00 or they could stay at a hotel like hours 2star and pay400 to 800 dollar. More
