“A nice, decent hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for a night while driving down from Chicago to Charlotte. Had a decent stay and a good breakfast the next morning. Overall, a good and a neat place to stay in Louisville.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Hampton Inn for the weekend and we had such a great experience. The staff was so helpful and friendly! They suggested places for us to go to dinner and even printed out directions for us. When we asked for more towels the staff brought us more towels with two bottles of water and two packs of Oreos with them. I have never been to a hotel with such helpful and friendly staff!!

Overall a very good experience at the downtown Louisville Hampton Inn. These guys do a good consistent job. Always clean, reasonably priced and a decent breakfast (which is included in your price). The only negative would be the location. It was fine but if it was closer to 4th street that would be better. I would definitely stay there again.

Another great Hampton Inn. Clean, comfortable. Free WiFi. Free parking (some downtown hotels charge for parking). Standard free breakfast. Some repairs going on in the breakfast serving room. No waffle machine. Don't think I've ever been to a Hampton that didn't have one. Small fitness room. No weights or weight equipment. Another poster said there was constant sirens on the streets below the hotel. I did hear sirens a few times. I think there is a hospital nearby and the sirens are ambulances. Could be annoying to some, but didn't bother me.

Within walking distance of the Louisville Slugger Field, Museum/Factory, YUM Center and the river walk. Lots of great restaurants.

Thanks for writing such a great review following your recent stay at our hotel. I'm glad that our hotel, downtown location and the services provided met your expectations. We normally do have a waffle machine but it was removed that day due to the emergency repair work being done. We had waffles available in a chafing dish with our other hot foods. Thanks again for your input and we hope to see you again real soon.

I've stayed at the downtown Hampton Inn in Louisville several times now. It's a great location! The YUM Center (basketball stadium for U of L) is only a couple blocks away. There are also several good restaraunts, bars, pubs, etc. within walking distance. You can also walk to the "4th street live" area, Louisville's prime nightlife spot. The rooms are what you expect from Hampton Inn's. Very clean, modern, great beds with down comforters, updated with flat panel TV's. The hotel staff in Louisville is also really friendly and helpful, all of them, not just the front desk folks. I was there most recently for business and will be returning soon, it's my preferred hotel for business in Lousiville and the rates are in line with Hampton's in other areas excepting you're in town on game night it run higher then. Great place to stay overall, definitely recommend.

The pros:
Check in easy and friendly
We used the hotel shuttle to take us to and from 4th St Live to eat
Easy to get to from the Interstate
Free parking
Free wifi

The cons:
Pillow had bloodstains on it
Shower in handicapped room was filthy with hair stuck to walls
Medication had been left in the bathroom from a previous guest
Breakfast poor for a Hampton Inn - canned fruit, and 'bagel topper' was truly disgusting
Did not receive a bill under the door
Located close to numerous hospitals so sirens all night long

I would not choose to stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on the night of 2/18/12.

The location is perfect for spending an evening in downtown Louisville or an event at the Yum Center because everything is within a reasonable walking distance.

We found the hotel room to be clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

The lobby/bar/breakfast area was one of the most spacious and nicely decorated that I've seen.
