Your basic economy place. The location is good and that was a huge plus for us as we were traveling. The room was clean and the bathroom clean and newish. The guy at the front desk was knowledgeable and friendly. My only beef -- you pay for parking in their lot. What???

Needed a place to stay for the night while travelling from Rochester New York to Waco Texas. Booked this hotel while in-route. We mistakenly booked a smoking room and when we found out when we got there, they were more than accommodating and got us into a non-smoking room! We found the it to be clean with a friendly staff...

Good hotel for a good price when all other places in the area were going for at least twice the price and usually more. Clean comfortable rooms with great amenities including fridge and free on demand tv. Only drawback was a bit of noise where you can hear everything going on outside your room. Papa John's in the parking area...

When we arrived, I was a little hesitant because we usually stay in "nicer" hotels but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. We met so many nice people. Check in was easy and friendly. Our third floor room was clean and new. I liked that we had a frig/microwave combo. The location was in easy walking distance of...

The bed was amazing. I even slept through my alarms in the morning which I never do. The room was clean and the location of this hotel was fantastic. Parking costs $5, but it's worth it since you can walk to most places from the hotel and you would likely have to pay more for parking elsewhere in the city...

If you are looking for a basic room within walking distance of 4th street and other downtown areas this will do. It seemed like a safe area for walking as well. The parking is inexpensive but get there early as it will fill up on busy weekends. The room seemed clean but could use some updating. Our room had big...

I have stayed here on my 2 most recent trips to Louisville --- one time for 3 nights, and the other for a single night. I read several reviews prior to booking, but I have never had any issues with a "rough crowd". To me this is a decent (although could use some updating) price for a room if you...

We came in locally and was just looking for a getaway from the normal world. We were welcomed by a nice smiling front desk girl, she asked many questions to make sure we were comfortable.
