We stayed at the hotel with our 220 member marching band in preparation for KMEA state championship competition at Papa Johns. The staff were all so nice to us! They somehow kept the breakfast bar stocked and all our kids were able to eat with no problems. The hotel has been remodeled and I have no complaints about the facility....

Where to begin. Was it the fact it was very old and needed remodeling. Or the fact the rugs in the room and the hall were filthy. The sheets were the only thing that was clean. The room darkening shades had holes in them. The sheers were filthy dirty. The air conditioner was set to 63 and it wouldn't come...

This was a Holiday Inn previously and a pretty worn down one at that. They have done some tidying and it looks like some remodel is on the way but they have a ways to go. The staff was terrific! Very friendly and accommodating. The wifi works but is a little sleepy at times. Continental breakfast but a nice spread...

My son, father and I stayed here for one night on Friday, July 29th. I don't have any complaints. Our room was clean, parking was good and staff was very friendly. The beds were very comfortable.

My room smelled heavily of mildew as did the main lobby. The things in my room, including sheets, were damp. My phone notified me that it had moisture (didn't know there was such a notification). The front desk gal agreed there was a moisture issue. Could be an okay place if they fix this issue.

Thank nevera

Service staff was friendly, but the room was not worth the price paid. Very dated, musty rooms. Cleaned each day but just didn't feel "clean". Small bathrooms. Sub par breakfast. Nothing hot unless you made oatmeal. Not a great part of town. Images online much nicer than in person. Noticed there were no images of rooms. We just stayed at...

Very friendly place. Quite dated with carpet stains and carpets that have debris and are unkept. Only advantage is that it is close to Churchhill Downs racetrack which is a big plus. Standard hotel breakfast included. Close to freeway. Rooms are adequate.
