“Same as the rest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Great value. Quiet, comfortable rooms. the strange "cleaning" odor that other people have mentioned does exist, but after 15 mins or so, we didn't notice it any more. Current local road construction made is about 15 minutes to downtown Louisville. I am sure it would be quicker when the construction is done.

My wife and I stayed one night here and enjoyed our overall stay. The Staff at the front desk were polite courteous and friendly. The room was plenty large enough and the bed was comfortable but there was a strange odor in the room. There is an on site restaurant that serves a pretty good breakfast that I would recommend.

First the positives and there are some. The room was affordable, the room was not unattractive and the bed was comfortable. The pool looked nice although we did not try it.

But the negatives outweighed the positives: As other reviewers have said, the room smelled bad (especially for a no-smoking hotel), the internet was glacially slow in the evening (I would say how slow but could not get speedtest.net to finish loading), and the we had no hot water. No do not disturb sign so housekeeping knocked on the door early.

I spent one night at the Clarion when in Louisville for the golf tournament. This is an ok place to stay and a pretty good value. The hotel itself is not all that nice, pretty average, but I did not have any problems with the room. The lobby was pretty nice, and they had a big indoor pool as well as an outdoor pool and both appeared clean and nice. Considering the price and location I would stay here again if I was planning another short stay in the area.

I honestly don't even know where to start. We stayed at this hotel only b/c of an event we were attending, it wouldn't have been my personal pick. From the time we checked in, we were just very unimpressed. The lobby itself is nice and the indoor pool is beautifully decorated but the positive stops there. The staff at the desk was very to the point, no smiles, no warm greeting. The hotel itself is very old and you can tell they have just added more and more "wings" through the years to accommodate more guests instead of doing a major overhaul like they need to. Hotel is like a maze, very confusing and easy to get lost. The wings only connect on the L1 floor. There are only ice machines on the 1st 4th and 8th floors and the 4th floor one was broken. No fridge or microwave in the room either. The rooms are tiny and the hallways reek of mildew. My allergies were going crazy the whole time and I'm sure it is due to the mold or the fact that the hotel is "pet friendly" and not properly cleaning after. Double room has full beds instead of queens and the whole room is very cramped. Neither our iron or hair dryer worked properly. On our 2nd night our air conditioner leaked out and soaked that entire side of the room. My suitcase got wet and some of my clothes. We requested a room change and this was granted with no apologies at all for the trouble. Luckily the AC didn't leak in the new room, but it barely worked. And on the morning of our checkout we were greeted by a knock on the door from housekeeping at 8 AM!!! No apologies for that one either.
The restaurant was another thumbs down. B/c of being so short on time due to the event we attended, we ate breakfast one morning at the hotel. The buffet was nearly out of food the whole time and they never bothered to replace anything. We got very little to eat and almost no service from the waitress either. Against our better judgement, we tried to go back for dinner that night as we were in a hurry again. Even though the restaurant was only half full we were told they could not seat us for 45 minutes regardless of whether we were ordering food or eating the buffet b/c their kitchen staff could not keep up. So we left. We had some friends that waited around and said once they were finally seated it was like a fight to get any food off the buffet b/c again it was not being properly stocked.
When we checked out, we were not given a thank you for coming nor did they ask us how our stay was so I didn't bother telling them b/c they obviously didn't care. Leaving this review to warn others to stay FAR away from this hotel!!! You will be disappointed!!!

the staff was nice the lobby was nice, but the hallway was dirty, smelly and the room was old not to dirty. gum on the headboard. would not stay here again. The only reason we stayed was because it was late. They need to spend more money on the rooms instead of the lobby.

They have all the potential in the world. Huge Place, plenty of parking. It would be great for a family as a halfway point to Florida. Their pool looked fun, the lobby was very nice, their's a restaurant on site, and the staff was very helpful. However we were located in building K, which was not up to par. We stayed Saturday night for the PGA event at Valhalla Golf Club August 9th, 2014. The bathroom was tight, and in rough shape. Not very much counter space. The pillows we had were Half-size pillows, and were broken down pretty bad. The stairwell, and the elevator to get in and out of the building were in need of a good pressure wash, and a coat of paint. The room needs updating as well. I was not impressed with this place at all. To be clear, I was not horrified by this place, and if in a pinch I would stay there, but at 140 per night, I would definitely be looking elsewhere.

Room Tip: Avoid Building K.
