The room we stayed in was fairly recently updated, complete with fridge and microwave. They were in the process of updating the exterior as well. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast includes cereal (just 2 choices), fruit, bagels, juices, milk, and muffins/danish. The location is 3-4 blocks from the river and 2 blocks from "4th Street Live" restaurant district. There is a gas station/convenience store 1/2 block away. The downtown trolley (25 cents) stops about one block to the north (near 2nd St. and Jefferson).
Unfortunately, there is a dance club directly across the street which does not close until 4 A.M.!! Wednesday night is college night and the crowd spills out onto the sidewalk. (Thurs. and Fri. weren't as busy.) The motel is L-shaped and makes a perfect reflecting wall for the sound. But wait, there's more. In addition to the dance club, they advertise "The world's only drive-in motorcycle bar". By turning the fan on we could mask out most of crowd and music noise, but the cyclists revved up as they entered and exited the area. According to the desk staff, Louisville doesn't have a downtown noise ordinance. If you can sleep through the noise of a thunderstorm, this place may be just the ticket for you.
