“Priority Club Un-Friendly!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Fairly clean property. Upon checking in I was not greated as a Priority Club member or offered an upgrade despite having suites available. There was artwork missing from the walls in the room that I checked into. It seems as though they are getting comfortable with the business they automaticly get from Ford or GE that they don't really care about the guest who stays less frequently. The room was fairly clean, but the housekeepers need help. The wall need some paint touch up and the entire 4th floor has a smokey smell. Probably will not stay here again. For a $145 per night I am really let down!!

This is probably the nicest holiday Inn if ever stayed in . I think this property is new as the lobby , hallways and my room were impeccably clean . Location is convenient as it is close to the airport and a number of fast food restaurant . Hotel has a nice indoor pool and outdoor basketball court . The staff are not very friendly but overall I enjoyed my stay at this Holiday Inn .

Room Tip: HUGE King size Beds !!!

I was not expecting this hotel to be in a lower/poor area. It's near the airport and we kept the AC fan on all night to block the airplane noise. The staff was ghetto (white girl at checkin counter had cornrows). Restaurant attached had locals that we're a little sketchy. Wish I would have paid more and stayed at a different Holiday Inn.

Due to a delayed flight, we didn't arrive in Louisville until 3:30am. We called the hotel during our layover in Baltimore to cancel the reservation that we had made an hour earlier. We were told to call back in the morning. Once we called back the next morning, we were directed to June, who is the rudest Although we weren't in town for the Derby, we were charged $450 for a room. They were very rude when we asked for a refund since we didn't use the room at all. We never even checked in. The Manager hung up on me, even though I never raised my voice or got ugly. My family and I will NEVER stay at a Holiday Inn, again.

Ok. It was Kentucky derby week which was why the price was sky high. But the fact remains that the hotel was disgusting. When we first got to the room, there was an overpowering smell of raw sewage that kept getting stronger and stronger. We let them know at the front desk and to their credit, they fixed it right away. I had a hair dryer on day 1 that I never saw again. The carpet was disgusting, the room was dark and dingy, the front desk was incompetent at best. The only professionalism to be found was from the wait staff at the sports bar attached to the hotel. There were several folks who were so friendly, helpful and sincere that they didn't seem to belong in that frightful place!
The bottom line was I didn't feel smarter after staying at THAT Holiday Inn.

The hotel in of itself is fine but the staff appears to be disinterested and could barely get them to attend to me at the front desk. They appear to be there just to collect a paycheck. When I checked out early the woman at the front desk ignored me while she seemed to be having some sort of personal argument on the phone.
On a side note, the sportsbar attached to the property has cheap drinks but dont eat the food.
