3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This Days Inn was exactly as expected for the weekend of the Kentucky Derby.

The price of the hotel was less than most others we looked into. And since we booked a little late for the occasion, we were lucky to get a room. However, you get what you pay for. It is a place to stay during the Derby weekend, with no frills... Which suited us just fine.

The hotel offers a continental breakfast in the morning including biscuits and gravy in case you wanted a southern experience with your morning muffin.

The hotel was older, but clean. And suited for our needs for this particular trip. It wasn't a five star hotel by any means but the staff was very friendly and they exhibited that southern hospitality that seems to come naturally with the people of Kentucky.

We were told at the end of our visit that they would be renovating over the next year which is a good idea. Like I said, the hotel was older but again, very clean! It is situated right off the highway next to a liquor store and a gas station. There are other places in the city that may provide more creature comforts than this Days Inn but it was a perfect spot for our needs and quite affordable for Kentucky Derby weekend.

It is only a few miles up the highway to Churchill Downs. So for convenience and for hotel staff friendliness I give my experience a thumbs up.

Stayed May 2014, traveled with friends
