What a hotel. When they say "Louisville Airport," they mean it. It probably took no more than 3 minutes to make it from the hotel to the passenger terminal.
Pros: Friendly staff; nice enough rooms (kind of small, but not bad). Free high-speed internet (had my own wireless card for the laptop, so not sure if it's very good or not). A mini-convenience store with drinks, frozen meals, medicines, etc. Prices weren't unreasonable (probably on par with a Walgreen's or CVS, but maybe a tad cheaper). Cold refrigerator in the room (think dorm-style, not what's in your kitchen). Separate living and bedroom, though open-concept. The whole hotel is non-smoking, so you didn't have that ever-present nicotine aroma throughout the property. Free breakfast wasn't anything to write home about, but was decent.
Cons: Furniture in living quarters was tightly fitted. I had a hard time backing the desk chair up because of the chair in the living room. Only one TV for both rooms; it swivels back and forth. That swivel action caused the cable cord to come out twice during my stay. (And it's not convenient to plug it back in; I have a similar model TV at home, so I knew the layout - it was still difficult). I never could get the a/c to work right. And the location is too far from the Kentucky Exposition Center to walk; in fact, *nothing* is in walking distance. You'll have to rent a car to get around Louisville. That said, there are a ton of really good restaurants in a short drive.
You're also near a Six Flags park and have easy access to downtown (we went from the hotel to the Louisville Slugger museum in less than 20 minutes, and that included getting turned around downtown!).
Would I stay here again? Well, truthfully, I hope I never need to step foot in Louisville, KY, again (not on my Bucket List), but if fate brings me back this way, I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
