We went to the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, KY. The Convention was right next to the airport so it was very convenient. The hotel we stayed in was about 10 miles east of the airport, but the freeways are wonderful and so we were able to commute back and forth easily. The hotel was the Executive Inn and Suites... More

I was so appalled by the poor reviews of my favorite hotel that I felt obligated to write my own. I stayed at the Executive Inn during a recent trip to Louisville and haven't stopped talking about it since. I thought the layout was one of the most interesting of any hotel I have been to...I was told that the... More

Our stay was wonderful, but those bad prior reviews made me pause. when I booked a room. However, I should not have worried. I am so glad I stayed there . The hotel is closing soon and everything worked, the hotel was clean, the beds were comfy, and best of all the staff had great attitudes even though they knew... More

Got this on Priceline for $70/night for one night and I got HOSED! If I had used Hotwire, I would have been at the Country Inn and Suites (built in the last 3 years) for the same price -- just up the road. The only thing this place has going for it is that it's close to the airport and... More

We stayed at the Executive Inn as part of the Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup, during the Livestock Expo and Quarter Horse Show. The hotel is very convenient to the airport and fairgrounds, you could walk over, but rent a car if you fly in. The rooms were not great. The place is kind of a throw back to the... More

At first glance, it looked fine but as the night went on water leaking into tub never stopped running and beds felt like two by fours, restaurant too overpriced, as well as no ice in machine and sodas in hall too much anyway. Very disapointed! Only thing positive was location: right across from kentucky kingdom but should have stayed somewhere... More

It is not the Hilton, but it is certainly not the Bates Hotel either. We took our teens to Ky Kingdom and stayed two nights. We arrived, put the kids on the shuttle, and put ourselves in the lawn chairs by the beautiful pool for the next two days. How easy is that?! The pool is older, but very clean... More

I actually have stayed at worse hotels in my time, but never at this price point. Had I paid $30 a night I still would have been sorely disappointed. The non-smoking room that I had reserved stank deeply of ages-old cigarette smoke. (Maybe non-smoking only meant that I myself would not be smoking in it while I was there.) The... More

We originally made reservations at the Executive Inn West. We live less than two hours away, and were going to Ky. Kingdom on Saturday. We booked a room at Ex. West because they advertised an indoor, heated pool with poolside rooms. The only reason we came a night early was so our kids could swim. The pool is in a... More
