I noticed, before our trip, that there were reviews claiming the hotel had bed bugs. First off, I want to say that I'm actually sitting on the bed after the first night here and nothing! No bed bugs! Also, I've yet to come in contact with any of the rude staff members. Some are friendlier than others, but I haven't met any who are downright rude. The hotel is, in fact, a little dated; however, what do you expect at this price? The rooms are clean! The beds are comfortable! The air conditioner works! No problem with the internet access ... obviously! It was pretty quiet last night and I noticed that there were, in fact, a lot of guests. There are a few locals who come to the pool/gym, but I haven't noticed any yahoos that scare me. And, in fact, the indoor heated pool is awesome! After a day of walking downtown and in the Old Louisville neighborhood, it was a great way to relax. I haven't made it to breakfast yet ... actually, I planned to spend some time in the hot tub first. My only complaint is that the electronic lock for the door seems a bit delayed ... the batteries probably need changed. But things like that are to be expected, and we will advise the front desk staff of this ... they probably aren't even aware.
I've come to the conclusion that you just can't please some people. Working with the public myself, I understand that there are some people who just enjoy complaining or are confrontational and enjoy the "high" of starting an argument. My experience with this particular hotel is that it's clean, cheap, comfortable, and it seems to be in a safe area. I'm staying again tonight! And if I were to come back to this area at a later time, I would, more than likely, stay here again.
If you want a clean, cheap, basic room (along with a pool and hot tub ... not EVERY hotel offers that!), this is definitely a place to consider.
