Days Inn Louisville Central University & Expo Center
Ranked #89 of 98 Hotels in Louisville
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We had booked thru the days inn 800 number because we were having difficulty finding a room on interstate 65 all the way from nashville TN. We were exhausted when we arrived at 1am. Getting on and off 65 to the hotel is awkward if you are arriving from the south. The lobby looked decent but dated and the man at the desk was polite. When we were instructed to pull around the side and park in back I should have just left.

There were people hanging out on the walkways, the lighting was poor and it looked like the ghetto. If I were looking to score a prostitute or some other illegal activity Im sure you could find it at this hotel. Our room ended up being in a corner section which was away from the noise and loitering. I noticed that unoccupied rooms had dirty floors when i walked past the windows. We got to the non smoking room and were greeted by a stale smoke smell. The carpet was free of debris. The chairs were stained and looked gross and we did not set anything on them except the gross looking bedspreads. The blanket, sheets and pillows were clean although the skirts were torn. We inspected the beds for bugs and did not find anything. We must have had an updated room because tub and shower were fiberglass and the toilet looked newer. I will give them compliments on the bathroom because it was clean as well.

Breakfast was fair considering it was continental and it served its purpose. The staff was friendly and polite.

Almost forgot, the Liquor store and gas station that share the parking lot and the commotion that comes with that at 1am. That with Jake brakes from trucks and the blasting sounds of train horns makes this an awful place. I would never stay here alone or with my family not at any price.

Room Tip: choose a different HOTEL!!! unless you are looking for Drugs, booze or prostitution!

Thank you for taking time out to fill out a survey on us. While the survey was not what I wanted to hear it does help me on what I need to do to improve our guest stay. We do have security on property and he walks the property continuously and responds to guest rooms when they call. As for prostitution If I find out it is going on I will call the police and have them arrested. The noise from the expressway is hard to control and if your from a small town or the country the noise will bother you. I'm from the city and I really don't hear it, but I'm sure that's partly because I have grown accustom to it. I do want to thank you for your kind comments about the rooms being clean and the breakfast bar employees.

The room was filthy. We were too exhausted to look for another hotel. The sheets were stained on one of the beds. the upholstered chair was so extremely stained we would not even set something on top of it, let alone sit on it! There were several unoccupied rooms in corner areas with the doors wide open!! Very scary in the dark! It made us wonder if there was prostitution going on, especially when we constantly noticed creepy men hanging around the parking lot. The dog walking area was full of broken glass and insulation scraps, definitely not suitable for a dog. We barely slept wondering if we were safe.
But the bathroom was clean.
