“Worth the stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

First let me say that I always look for the suite hotels so have stayed in many..Always get the 1 bedroom so we have plenty of room. Full kitchen, living room and bedroom usually come with all. Got the 1st floor as requested, nice warm cookies at the desk when we arrived, pleasant staff and the hotel had lots of TV stations and was in a good location...safe area. The only things that did not measure up: The evening 'food' was not more than vegetable snacks and some chicken wings - usually there is more substantial food - but the breakfast was decent and of course both are free. I might search another suite hotel in the area if we were there again but this one was decent.

I stayed here for about 20 days in Dec 2011 and loved it. The staff are very courteous and helpful and make you feel welcome. The rooms are very nice and clean and the Wifi Internet connection is not the usual slow connections found at other hotels. They have a wired and wireless option for Internet. The breakfast in the morning is an added advantage with a varying menu most days. They also have complimentary dinner on some nights which is a nice touch. The onsite gym is probably the worst thing about this hotel, but they do have a fantastic deal with a hook up with an Urban Active fitness gym about 3 miles away. No charge for washers and dryers etc and they also have a small mini-mart at the hotel.

We just spent a week here after having to move out of our house the day after Christmas. We chose this place,first, just to have a nice place to stay while we decompressed after a stressful move. After a day or so, we realized that this is where we were going to stay for at least another month while we continue to look for a house. What more could we want, a nice, bright, clean room with a comfortable bed, a living area, a desk for the computer with free wi-fi, a small kitchen with the basics to cook with if you choose to, a great breakfast every morning, some items are the same, some are different each day. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays there are evening meals. Coffee/tea are available 24/7, along with cookies at the desk. Washer/dryers available, no charge and you can workout while you do your laundry. Its great to have housekeeping too! So sad its January and we have to settle for spending time around the cozy fireplace instead of sitting around the pool and chomping on the crushed ice. With all of these great amenities, they would be nothing without a friendly staff to go with them!! Chelcey, the little ray of sunshine at the front desk, has been so very helpful in so many ways!!!! The staff also helped us to make an informative decision to be able to stay here for an extended stay. This is a great value for all of the amenities that are included. We are thrilled to have such a wonderful place to hibernate and look for our new home.

The one thing I hate about staying here just one night is that I wish I could enjoy the clean spacious nights with my family for a week. This is just a great property. As I said, the rooms are clean and spacious, the staff is warm and helpful (although the wireless password expires at 5 a.m. so you have to call the front desk to get another password if you want to check e-mail in the morning). Staybridge is one of my favorite choices for a hotel when I am on the road.

We stayed here for a week with five rooms total. The staff, specifically Zach and Chelsea made us all feel at home. The rooms were spacious and the property was kept up well. The location was close to the highway but quiet with not much else around. You do need a rental car to stay there, but there is a nice gas station for late night ice cream runs you can walk to.

Hello BigD420,

Thank you so much for your great review of the Staybridge Suites! We are glad that you and the other travelers with you had a positive experience. It is always nice to hear that you enjoy not only the rooms, but are also pleased with the location. We do have a very nice gas station close by...and our market is all stocked up with some great ice cream choices too! My personal favorite from next door is Nachos and Cheese! Yummy!

Please come back and stay with us the next time your travels bring you to Louisville! We would love to have you again.

Thanks again,

This is a great property - clean, attractive, safe - and dog friendly for extra fee. Staybridge Suites has become my new favorite choice for lodging.

We stayed here for one night. The staff on our check-in was super nice and full of energy. We were in the room right off the lobby and the elevators - I would request a different room next time. The room was average sized but toilet seemed very small. Not enough mirrors in my opinion.
Although it had a complimentary breakfast...at 9:00AM it was out of many things. There was cold cereal but no spoons. There was cold oatmeal. We were able to pour half a cup of coffee.
It seemed the front desk person was also covering the buffet. There wasn't anyone at the front desk when we went to check-out.
Value was great but I wouldn't coulnt on breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from lobby and elevator
