“Would stay again and recommend!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Very clean, easy to get to. In a part of town that seems business based but not as bad as others seem to think. Beds were comfortable, service was great. The front desk gal even made a huge effort to get us a floor room, since it was after midnight and we had a toddler to carry in, she did so without us asking. All in all a great experience!

Thank you so much for the very good review. It is nice to hear that my Guest Service Representative anticipated your needs and was able to provide the first floor room for you. Traveling with a toddler can be a challenge with all of the stuff that they need. The next time you come back to visit you may want to check out the Louisville Zoo which is only 1.5 miles from the hotel. My grandkids have a great time when they go especially since they had a splash park to play in on those hot summer days. We have added The Disney Chanel and Nickelodeon to our TV line-up to make us a much better value for guest with children. I hope to see you soon.

The area where the hotel itself does not look the best, but it was very quiet and not bad at all. The staff was very friendly and I was actually really impressed by the room (I've never stayed at a hotel with hardwood floors). I would definitely stay again next time I'm in town.

Thank you so much for the very nice review. We love the new flooring as do most of our guest. The room has a much more modern look. I hope you were able to enjoy some of the attractions that the city has to offer like the Louisville Zoo and the underground zip line that is only 1.5 miles from the hotel. Kentucky Kingdom amusement park opens May 24th. We are only 15 minutes from downtown Louisville where you could enjoy a ride on the Belle Of Louisville or go to the Louisville Slugger Museum and take a tour of the factory where the baseball bats are made. Please come back and visit soon.

My wife and I stayed here on 4/8/14 after a bad experience at a Red Roof Inn in another city the night before.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the room we had at this Red Roof was ten times nicer and didn't stink of smoke. It actually seemed like it had a lot of new aspects to it, as the banner on the front advertised.

We had a king size deluxe room which looked like it had new(er) flooring, a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and a nice desk with plenty of room.

Kudos to the management and staff here for keeping things nice and thanks for letting us experience a good stay with Red Roof.

Thank you for the very nice review. I am glad that we were able to show you how great Red Roof Inns are. We take pride in our job and have a heart for service. I hope you enjoyed some of the great restaurants and attraction Louisville has to offer. The next time you come to visit you should try Kentucky Kingdom our new amusement park that opens May 24th which is only a few miles from the hotel or the Louisville Zoo that is only about 1.5 miles from the hotel. Thanks again for the great review and I hope to see you soon.

When I pulled into the parking lot, I have to admit, I was a little concerned about the area, especially as a woman staying here alone. I was expecting to be right next to the Fair & Expo Center, but that isn't really the case (my fault for not looking at the map). It's actually a couple of miles down the highway. But my stay ended up being very pleasant. The room was comfortable, clean, and quiet - that's all I needed. It was obvious the description about the recently renovated rooms was accurate. The refrigerator makes a bit too much noise when it's cycling, but I didn't hear the highway nearby, nor the other guests, which all seemed to be construction workers and truckers. Everyone I encountered at the front desk was very nice and helpful, and they offer free coffee in the lobby as well as a coffee maker in the "deluxe" rooms. Again, the neighborhood may put you off at first sight, but it turned out to be convenient, with a gas station and restaurants right next door and down the street, and easy access to the highway. For the price, I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for the very nice review. As a woman traveling alone I know that feeling comfortable in your surroundings is very important. I have worked here for over 25 years and I always feel safe and comfortable. It is good to know that my staff was very friendly and made you feel at ease. You are right we are not next door to the fairgrounds but an easy commute of less than 2.5 miles. I hope you were able to enjoy some of the great restaurants and attractions that Louisville has to offer. Spring is a great time to be in Louisville. The spring meet at Churchill Downs begins on April 28th and The Kentucky Derby is May 3rd this year. We are only 6 miles from the track. You should come back and see us soon.

Great place to stay! Large very clean rooms. Our king room came with microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot, blow dryer, ironing board and iron. Plus it had a nice size area with an L shaped computer desk. I was amazed at how clean and comfortable the room was. Front desk workers were very friendly and helpful... especially Kimberly L. She assisted us with all of our directions, told us about local events and generally made our stay pleasant!

Thank you so much for the very nice review. I will be sure to tell Kimberle that you appreciated her service. I hope she directed you to some fun activities like the underground zip line or Fourth Street live. We have some pretty awesome restaurants too. One of my favorites is Ramsi's.

Our Superior King rooms are very nice and well equipped with every amenity that you mentioned at a reasonable rates. The housekeeping and maintenance staff take pride in keeping the property clean and well maintained.

I hope to see you soon!

The staff are really friendly. My pet rabbits love it here too! I'm looking forward to my stay next year when I am again in Louisville. You should stay here too! Two rabbit ears up!!

It is always a pleasure to welcome you and your bunny home for the antique military show. It is always nice to hear when our guest enjoy their stay and like the service that we provide. I hope you were able to go out and enjoy some of the sights that the city has to offer like The Kentucky Derby Museum or The Frazier Historical Arms Museum. When you come back you might want to try the new barbeque restaurant out from. I am looking forward to seeing you soon.
