Quick trip to Louisville to see the Mega Cavern lights on Christmas Eve. We hadn't stayed at a Red Roof Inn for a long time, so we weren't sure what to expect. Reviews looked good, and location was good, so we made the reservations. Price was very good for the area. Reservation process was easy. With help from Google Maps,...

The price was right. The room was clean, and the bed was comfy. The Red Roof Inn is super convenient to the interstate & the Highlands district of Louisville. If you're looking for simplicity & a place to sleep, I recommend it. If you want to get pampered, maybe not. My only recommendation is that they offer maybe some fruit...

This property is not in the best part of town. When I arrived there were many "Shady" characters walking around the parking lot.

Hotel was very clean. Easy to check in. Wasn't loud at all. No frills, just a good place to lay your head down, rest and then continue on your travels. Only negative I can mention is that no "free water" given as should be to redicard member.
