Nice hotel. Stayed here for a weekend for a Louisville Cardinals vs. Florida State football game. Excellent location from stadium. Room was nice for a weekend stay. They did not clean our room, and did find a stain on the carpet. TV remote did not work. We called and they did not come, so I fixed myself, no big deal.... More

Walked in room and immediately noticed stained carpet. T.V. did not work. While shuttle driver was trying to fix t.v., I saw a bug drop from the can light onto the floor. Bug will not be a witness.This is all happening at midnight. Very disappointed in Holiday Inn. And no breakfast!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Airport & Fair/Expo Center hotel for two night while we were going to Kentucky Kingdom. The location of the hotel is great as it was a 2 min. drive from the hotel to the park. The parking lot of the hotel is on the small side but we were always able to find a... More

Thank you very much for staying with us and for the 4-Star review. I am so sorry if there was confusion on the breakfast. Our hotel is a full service Holiday Inn, which buffet breakfast is not an amenity that is included. Holiday Inn Expresses all include breakfast with their rate.

Was wonderful stay on the top floor with a corner window to see the planes coming in, but had an evacuation, due to someone smoking on our floor..Was handled very well...It was full and parking was a little small, but the bartenders made up for that. They girls were wonderful. Would stay there again for sure...

Booked three nights in this hotel mainly because of the good location being close to the airport and the fair price. Checked into the hotel which was fine even though my rate was supposed to include breakfast, but I was told that breakfast wasn't part of the price.

I stayed here two nights while on a business trip to the area. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I had no problems or issues. The only reason I didn't give a higher rating was due to the condition of the carpet in one area that needed repair or replacement. Overall it's a... More
