My kids and I wanted to stay at a decent hotel ($51/night) while visiting Louisville this June. With the inexpensive price and mixed reviews, I agree it was not great. The staff was very friendly, the rooms needed updating (paint cracking, leaking bathtub faucet, and old beds). The beds were very uncomfortable and the rooms are small. We were able to get a roll away bed but barely had room to fit it. When we asked for more towels, they sent them right down. The rooms also had a strange smell when you walk in.
The thing I found the strangest was the locals (apartments are almost in the same parking lot) were allowed to buy memberships to the pool. When we arrived there was water aerobics going on in the outside pool. We had to wait to swim. The locals also would show up with coolers and cigarettes to get their sun from about 9AM until 10PM. One group even had a party at the pool that we had to walk around to return to our room. It was very odd and brought in a lot of strangers which were not all friendly. In the inside pool, people were swimming laps. The hot tub jets were broken. The lifeguards on duty were always pleasant but some were there to chat it up with their friends instead of doing their jobs.
The continental breakfast was fine and included cereal, juice, coffee, bagels, muffins, etc. Nothing fancy but enough to feed the kids.
