Unbeatable price for location
It had the best price for the downtown location, which is walking distance to everything I need. I especially appreciate the free parking and breakfast.

Overall happy with hotel.rooms were clean and beds comfortable. One of our friend's room had a significant amount of mold on the ceiling in the bathroom like the roof was leaking. Free parking and close the bars.
Joanna, us1 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Not too bad
The location is incredibly convenient to downtown activities. 10 minutes from the airport, Churchill Downs and other non-Downtown activities. The room itself was decent, clean but there were weird instances in the bathroom of molding not attached or cracks along the backsplash. The construction right outside my room made nights very noisy. Not because they were doing construction but from the metal plates cars were driving over. Sounded like hammering going on. The wifi wasn't very strong either. I would give this place one more try before giving a final verdict. The location and price were amazing and the staff was very nice. The gas station and restaurants across the street also were a perk. Maybe just bring ear plugs to be on the safe side!

Fair 4.0
Location good but that’s it.
The location is good, the condition of the room was very poor. Room was extremely dusty, it smelled, the plaster on the bathroom ceiling was peeling off. The caulking around the vanity was dirty and coming off in chunks.

I would not recommend staying
The floors were filthy. The bathroom floor still had stuff on the on the floor. The rooms needs to be updated terribly. So out dated. Even the bed sheets did not smell very clean.
