“Great Front Desk, Room and Food Offerings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

The hotel was super clean and the front desk friendly and helpful. We were provided with vouchers for breakfast at the restruant and discounts for dinner. This hotel is close to the airport but not on top. It is also right off the interstate. However, there is nothing within walking distance to view. So great for one night!

Room Tip: When checking on price ask if this includes breakfast vouchers. We were not aware that it did but q...

Overall the hotel was clean, but found the free Wi Fi was not very cooperative in connecting or allowing me to complete my work. As for the Restaurant and Lounge, was clean but staff was hit and miss. Sunday evening the staff was great, last night the staff made us feel as though we were wasting their time as patrons.

Stayed at the holiday inn south during a trip to louisville for university orientation. The rooms are clean and relatively spacious. Staff were prompt and friendly. However, the ups planes started taking off about 4:30 AM and kept doing so for an hour. Made it hard to sleep and made for a long day of orientation.

The hotel is new, the beds are comfortable and the AC is great. Your room includes a good full breakfast and the hotel restaurant has good food. Rooms are quieter on the east side away from the airport.

I stayed here for a quiet weekend get-away to visit friends in the area. I used the pool upon arrival. When I walked into the pool area, there were three younger gentlemen in the pool area with glasses and beer bottles. They also had the lifesaving equipment in the pool. I didn't see any cameras in the pool area so it makes me wonder how the staff can watch the pool area--doesn't seem very safe at all. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff was indifferent. I did take advantage of the free breakfast coupon for "Sporting News"--the hotel on-site restaurant. The waitress was very friendly and pleasant. It seemed understaffed however because she was quite busy and I believe there was only a cook other than her. The breakfast bar needed attending. Overall, it was a nice stay. I would stay here again.

My wife and I chose this location for its convenient location near Churchill Downs and the Shepherdsville area wineries. The check-in process was quick and easy, though the desk clerk seemed rather indifferent to our presence. I wasn't expecting her to bubble over with cheeriness, but a bit of eye contact and a smile go along way. Just a minor gripe, of course. We had booked a whirlpool room (in which to enjoy our wine purchases) and found our accommodations to be very clean and - even though our room faced the airport - extremely quiet. While some reviewers have mentioned choosing the East side of the building for a quieter stay, we were very pleased with the low amount of noise and enjoyed the added benefit of a wonderful sunset. The whirlpool was spotless and in good working order with plenty of hot water available. I had a bit of an issue with the drain refusing to remain closed, but after a bit of monkeying everything worked as designed. The bed itself was quite comfortable, but the pillows (labeled either "firm" or "soft") were a bit hard to get just right. Your best bet is to bring your own, if possible. Although we received coupons for free breakfast and $4 off dinner at the attached Sporting News Grill, we chose to skip the offer. Nothing on the menu indicated that they had gluten free items or could accommodate those with gluten intolerance so, for my wife's sake, we stopped in at the very nearby Big Boy restaurant. Overall, our stay was pleasant, comfortable, and convenient.

Room Tip: West side rooms offer beautiful sunset views. Bring your own pillows, if possible.

Dear KY_Explorer,

We were so happy to see that you found our little place in the universe worthy of a four star review! It is very rewarding to know that you liked your stay at our hotel so well and took the time to tell everyone about it. Even more important was receiving info on how to make it better. This allows us to fine tune our service for future guests, hopefully including yourself.

We stayed here while travelling south through Louisville. Very warm and welcoming place. They had a "Sorting News" bar/restaurant on site that had a great happy hour. We split a huge blackened chicken salad, had two pint microbrew beers and a glass of wine for a total bill of $21.00. Room is near the airport so some plane noise but not really objectionable. AAA rate of 109.00 plus taxes was very fair as they also gave us coupons for the buffet breakfast. We would drive out of our way to stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side of the hotel away from the airport. May be quieter
