“Overall nice hotel...but be sure to ask about details!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The location of the hotel was great. Only a few miles from the mall and shopping and only about 15 minutes from downtown. There were also a lot of restaurants on the same road as the hotel, which was nice. We travel a lot, but have never stayed at a drury inn, so wasn't really sure how everything worked. When we checked in, the employee just gave us our room keys and sent us on our way. We left for dinner and when we came back, we saw several people eating in the foyer and wondered what was going on. We found out that they offer a hot meal every night and free drinks, but we missed out on that because we had no clue. Our room was in the open foyer area. At first we thought this location was nice, but it ended up being pretty loud. Also, beware that this is a pet friendly hotel, so you may have to listen to a dog bark all night long, like we did. Other than that, the hotel was clean and updated and we felt safe. However, for the price we paid, we wish we would have stayed somewhere a little nicer. We really didn't feel like it was that great of a value.

I was in town for the Bluegrass volleyball tournament on March 8-9. The staff at check-in was very friendly and helpful. Check in was quick and all our needs were attended to. Hotel is a little older , but clean. The breakfast was the usual standard , but the hot food served at 5.30 to 7 pm was an added plus. There was salad, meatballs, nachos, pasta, hot dogs and soup! can't forget the 53 cent draft beer! The suite i had was clean and large with 2 tvs. You can't go wrong at this hotel. I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in town.

We checked in after traveling all day and were very pleased with everything from the clean, soft beds to the breakfast the following morning. Great rate and very attentive staff. The pool area was very nice and a great way to get a little exercise. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

Staying in a nice hotel with a (big) dog can be tricky. Drury Inn does it right! I have stayed at the Drury 3 times now on cross-country trips between the Midwest and the East Coast. Each time, the front desk staff is ridiculously nice. So nice it almost hurts. There is a dinner AND a breakfast buffet to please most palates! For no extra fee, you can graze on the baked potato bar, salad bar, fresh veggies, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs or chicken nuggets, a nacho station, and chips, pretzels, and popcorn. (Great deal for anyone who has been on the road for 8 hours and just doesn't want to get back in the car.) There is a soda fountain, coffee bar, and milk/juice for slurping. You can even get alcoholic drinks for .53 cents at this Drury in Kentucky. (Hotels in other states do it for free-- ie: Drury Inns, Indiana). Breakfast is expansive: hot and cold cereal, eggs, sausage, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, waffles, and muffins/bagels/toast. You won't go hungry at the Drury!

Rooms are very comfortable and clean: microwave and fridge in every one. Not a very noisy place. I got a Friday night deal for $85 once (a steal), but another time had to pay $140. Deals on the Drury website are a bit random. Still, this is a safe, clean, comfortable, nice place for an affordable price... and you don't have to sneak your dog in the back door after midnight and/or bring your own vacuum! Drury staff will welcome your pup with open paws.

Indoor and outdoor pools open all year. Bring your suit.

Location in East Louisville was convenient. The foyer was a beauty of stone and glass several stories high. Our room was on the second floor in the open foyer area. The room was very nice and roomy. We were so excited until we tried to retire for the evening. Even on the second floor we heard every whisper at the check in desk, every scrape of a chair in the café area, and every family as they settled into their room.

The staff was friendly and the next morning they were able to find us a room a little further from the foyer. Sadly it was a much smaller room and not quite as comfy.

Breakfast was the usual Drury fare, but they were pretty busy and scraping the bottom of many of the bowls. We were able to get breakfast, but is was pretty frustrating.

I would stay again, but the challenge is finding a room that is a compromise from the noise of the foyer and the bare brick walls of the small room.

Hotel is on the outskirts of Louisville, approx 10 minute drive into the downtown area. Hotel appears to be very busy, but is well maintained. We arrived around 5.00pm to find they they put on complimentary hot food and drinks from 5.00pm to 7.00pm and the next morning a good hot breakfast was also provided. Staff were friendly and willing to assist with guidance of sites to see etc..don't miss the Kentucky Derby Museum well worth a visit.

We stayed over a long weekend, in a 2-room suite with our dog. Very comfortable; looked clean (the dog found lots to sniff at).

The suite is equipped with dorm-sized fridge and small microwave. Sleeper-sofa & chair with end lamps & coffee table, desk & chair were in the living room; beds, night table & lamp, dresser in the bedroom. The bathroom is off the living room, so if you're sharing, you may want a robe.

Free breakfast and supper items were average motel-quality, and plentiful. Beverage station was available all hours.

The indoor/outdoor pool looked appealing, but Louisville requires a pool attendant whenever guests are in the area, so it was not available during all posted hours. The one day we wanted to swim in the morning, the pool wasn't going to open until 2pm. Another day, we just wanted to sit in the warmth, not use the pool: the motel rustled up a man in a business suit to watch over us. We felt so silly about it, we moved to another room.

All staff was friendly and accommodating, and met our every request, except for the morning swim mentioned above. We are very pleased, and likely to return if ever we are in the area.

The parking lot was behind brick walls and gated, and all side doors were locked at all times, so we felt secure.

Room Tip: Our first-floor room near the pool was very quiet: we rarely heard any noise once in our room. Once...
