I had mixed feelings about booking this hotel, but the reviews swayed me toward it. We had originally planned to stay at a swanky downtown hotel, but it was going to cost well over $3000 for 3 nights. We paid over $300 a night for this hotel, but it was far less expensive so we could actually enjoy ourselves at the racetrack. Location was great, staff was helpful, and the rooms were updated and immaculate! We were so close to Churchill Downs that we didn't pay a ton for cab fare, either. This Red Roof was my one winning pick of the racing weekend!
