“Great hotel for the price”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in May 2012 while I visited Louisville for work. The room was spacious with a work desk, king sized bed, a mini fridge, and a microwave. The room smelled clean and looked clean with no noticeable cracks, peeling paint, or stains on the walls or carpet. The free internet had decent speed. Also, the hotel was right off the I-264 with easy access to downtown Louisville. The only drawback to this hotel was it was in a sketchy area with lots of abandoned buildings and shut-down businesses. I would recommend this hotel If you just need a reasonably priced place to stay for a couple of nights in Louisville.

Having a hard time believing everyone loved this place so much! People were nice but that's about it. Room had been updated but we found bugs in the room. Spent all day out on a Sunday( nearly 15 hours), when we got back the room was NOT cleaned. Then when I went to ask for towels, she gave them to us but couldn't find wash rags.. Had to drive at least 2 exits away to find food or gas or anything. Overall, very disappointed based on the reviews here. We would never have stayed at a Red Roof Inn except it was rated so highly on Trip Advisor. It was NOT the best experience. Won't be back!

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that we did not exceed your expectations. We have 5 restaurants directly in front of the hotel but you are right most full service unique restaurants are one exit east of us on Bardstown Road. You would just go north off of the exit and will find a restaurant on every block. We also have maps and a listing of our favorite places at the front desk.
In the fall we will start renovation the hotel. I think you will be amazed at how different the rooms will look. Please come back and give us a try again.

Again, Iam sorry that we did not exceed your expectations.

Thank you,
Debbie

We stayed at this hotel during the Derby. We shopped around and found this hotel to be reasonably priced and the reviews were good. Our room looked liked it was brand new. The girl at the desk was nice and helped us find transportation. We will definetly be staying herre again when we are in Louisville.

Room Tip: King room has a small microwave and fridge.

I by chance was in Louisville the weekend of the Sweet 16 games, and the largest dog show in North America. I stayed on the side nearest the highway and there was noise but not too bad. The rooms were clean, and updated. Dogs stay for free at Red Roof, and thats nice! They have microwaves and a frig. I'm a fan of Red Roof but I could have possibly had a quieter room. Really tho I was quiet comfy and happy with the choice.

Room Tip: All rooms are accessed from outside and I would suggest peps with pets stay on the lower level.

Was traveling through Louisville on the way to the East Coast. Extremely clean room and everything seemed new in the room. Probably the best RRI I've stayed at. Not in the best neighborhood as far as something to eat, but easy access to the highway. Very friendly employees. Well worth the money to stay here.

We stayed here for 4 nights during the dog show at the Fairgrounds. The place was packed and despite this, rooms were seriously clean and well maintained during our stay. Total kudos to the staff for their friendliness, patience in dealing with those patrons who didn't bother to follow instructions on scooping poop, littered and were generally pigs (as an aside they make it really difficult for us dog owners who take care of our dogs and pick up after them). There was a security guard who patrolled the parking lot at night (we really appreciated that!), a laundry room and plenty of ice. It was a pleasant stay. My only criticism would be the seriously worn and terribly warped dolly which needs to be replaced (we were on the second floor and it came in handy). We would definitely stay here again.

The rooms were clean and reasonably up to date. We had a bit of trouble with the A/C, but it was an unusually hot day in March so I don't know if it wasn't totally turned on. It worked, just had to keep the fan on hi to make cooling progress. As people have already mentioned, the staff seem very friendly.

Plus - pet friendly, 5-10 minutes from fairgrounds.

Only complaint - the tub/toilet area was really small. Had to move by the tub to close the door.

Room Tip: If you have a dog, first floor rooms are great.
