“great location/ food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

The Best Western Airport East/Expo is an older hotel that has had some remodeling but shows its age a bit. Its location is great for the zoo and other surrounding attractions. Newer traffic patterns create a bit of a nuisance accessing their entrance/parking area. Overall was pretty good for $72. The free breakfast was better than most and the attached "Mango's Bar & Grill" had great food at good prices.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

The hotel lobby is very nice and I found the staff to be pleasant. The room was ok. I thought very clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower could be better. There was not a lot of pressure plus there was a hot and cold knob that needed to be adjusted. It's an older hotel, but really much cleaner than many. The maid service was very good and very pleasant.
Breakfast on the other hand was severely lacking. No fruit and the eggs were a strange shape. I am not a biscuit and gravy eater. I ended up with cereal and yogurt. Ok, but not up to par with other hotels.
Mango's restaurant was pleasant for an evening adult beverage.
My biggest problem is the fact that there is absolutely nothing around the hotel and I do mean nothing. You have to drive to find a place to eat, there is no shopping. The expo center is close, but not really that close and it's a $20 taxi ride to go downtown, so keep that in mind when booking this hotel.

Got ripped off at $119 a night - hallways smelled like mold - Stayed in 143 and there is nothing nice about this hotel. Avoid it if you can. I found $64 rates online and the front desk told me there was no such thing. It appears they were at capacity so they raised the rates to rip off traveler of the girls volley ball event.

Very clean and friendly, internet price is very reasonable and like the restaurant attached to the hotel. The staff were very nice and helpful. But the breakfast was slacking, no fruit which I like in the mornings, and the gravy taste like paste, The waffles were good and coffee was great! Overall satisfying ,

Room needed repairs that should have been done BEFORE we checked in. Not very likely to recommend this hotel to fellow business associates. The food in the restaurant was very limited with a Mexican style menu.

21st time in Louisville for RVIA Show, 1st time at this hotel. Was clean, employees friendly and helpful. 10 minute ride to Expo Center by cab.



Mexican Grill/Bar next door was convenient and food was fine.

Would book there next year.

I was in town for the National Quartet Convention being held at Freedom Hall. This hotel was great. The room was more than adequate and beds were very comfortable. The free breakfast was more than enough. Hotel extended a late check-out when asked. Will stay here again.
