“Absolutely horrendous”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This hotel is disgusting. Our soccer team stayed here, and we opted to stay elsewhere. My son, however, came here to hang out with his friends for a few hours. During his short time here his cell phone, money and many other belongings were stolen. The doors locks don't work properly. The staff did not care, and did not cooperate with the police when they asked to speak with them regarding their maintenance man as well as their surveillance videos. They refused to return phone calls, and were incredibly rude.

I've stayed here before, and booked a night this trip as well. I like that it's an independent hotel and quaint compared to the big chain hotels. It has that southern plantation feel to it. It's an older hotel, with a slight musty smell, but nothing overwhelming. The rooms are spacious, look fairly recently updated. An awesome indoor pool with warm water! It's easy access to the highway, and there are many choices of restaurants less than a half-mile down the street. Continental breakfast was pretty sparse, not even waffles, so we had to go out to eat. My only complaint on this stay was that there was a party going on in several rooms around us, which spilled into the hallway as well and people were yelling and banging on doors and talking loud and laughing all night until about 4:00am. Mangement quieted them down once, but they started back up again after about a half hour. The soundproofing between rooms is good at this hotel, but there is almost no soundproofing on the hallway side of the room, so any hallway noise is enough to keep a person awake. I will definitely stay here again though, just maybe not near the pool.

Room Tip: Try to avoid staying in the wing where the pool is, it seems that's the 'party' wing/eas...

I stayed one night at Breckinridge Inn. It was wonderful. The huge indoor pool was heated to a very comfortable temperature. The exercise room was spacious and well equipped. The large king size bedroom was extremely comfortable with lots of soft pillows on the just-right-amount of-firmness mattress. There was plenty of hot water in the shower which had a nice, adjustable nozzle. The staff was attentive and friendly. If I'm ever in Louisville again this is where I will be.

Took a chance and booked a room for my wife and I while traveling through Louisville on our way to Cleveland Oh, and glad we did. While this may be an older property, the charm and ambience offered were way above other hotels in the area offering the same rates. The rooms were very clean, and tastefully decorated, and the bed was very comfortable. The only negatives we would comment on were, 1. no elevator near our entrance, and 2. The morning breakfast could have been a little better. But overall, we would still recommend this to those who are on a budget, and are looking for an alternative to your traditional budget hotels.

My boyfriend decided to book the Breckinridge Inn based on reviews from other travelers and this is now the only place we'll stay when we're in town. The location is PERFECT, right off 264 (Watterson). The room was spacious, clean and reminded me of a southern plantation home. I still can't believe how inexpensive the room was for the value. We heard the pool is amazing but since we only stayed for one night we didn't get a chance to check it out, so it's on our list for next time. Louisville has so many GREAT restaurants and beautiful outdoor attractions (i.e. trails and hiking: Jefferson Memorial Forest, Seneca Park, etc)...I can't wait until our next visit so that we can stay here again.

Was not expecting to like this hotel, but I was so wrong! Large clean rooms. Pool was very nice.Check in was quick-no hassles. Hotel is close to everything. It was quiet and we all slept great in very comfortable beds. Everything was clean and the staff was so nice and helpful -we will stay here again.

I wasn't expecting too much from this hotel. It was off the outer belt of Louisville and in a residential neighborhood. We arrived around 8pm after a long day if driving from NOLA. We checked in immediately. The lobby was huge very clean and had an enormous tv. Our room was kind of trippy. We walked in the TV was on and the heat was blasting. The room itself was enormous with a king bed and a large screen TV. The faucet in the bathtub was leaking but other than that the room was great. The bed was clean and comfy and the room was quiet. Breakfast was good and plenty. Someone must have forgotten the gravy because it was late getting out. But that was ok. The pool was in another building across the way, but the grounds are very well kept and clean from what we could tell.
I would definitely stay here if I ever pass thru Louisville again!!
