Drury Inn & Suites Louisville East
Ranked #22 of 98 Hotels in Louisville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 September 2016

This hotel is located southeast of Louisville and is pretty easy to access from the city. There are several other hotels and restaurants nearby. These include Bob Evans, Waffle House (can walk to these) and IHOP (across the main street.) We also passed an Olive Garden and other familiar names as we entered the area. We were pleasantly surprised to have liked this hotel so much, since we had never stayed at a Drury Inn & Suites before. We chose it because it welcomes pets, has an indoor whirlpool in the swimming pool area, was reasonably priced, and received great reviews on a pet website. The pool is partially indoor and partially outside, which is great for when the weather changes. This hotel brand offers a morning breakfast with a pretty good variety of choices. It also offers complimentary snacks (hot foods!) and beverages in the late afternoon if you need a little something to hold you until dinner. The service throughout the hotel was excellent. I can't think of another recent hotel stay where the staff was as helpful or courteous. Our room/suite was very large and had a mini-fridge. It may have had a microwave too but I didn't use it so I don't remember. The beds were very comfortable. The A/C had a continuous fan that masked other sounds in the hotel. This is a plus when you travel with a dog that hears every little thing. She did bark one time, and I think it was the cleaning people pushing their cart in the morning. Other than that, it was incredibly peaceful in our room despite sharing it with our normally yappy dog. The bathroom was clean and roomy. The shower offers dispensers of shampoo, conditioner and body wash, so you don't have to fiddle with little bottles. The drapes kept out the light on the morning that we were able to sleep in. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Though most of our travel is in the State of PA where there's only one Drury Inn, we will definitely use Drury Inns again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms near the elevator are easy to access with a dog.

People - could not have been nicer and really truly tried to do everything in our power to make the stay better
Room - room was bad. I don't ever complain but I did this time. I have stayed in some pretty crappy rooms but this was just a little much. It smelled so bad even with lysol air deordizer. The HVAC in bedroom didn't work - which I think is why it smelled bad. The carpet and walls were just gross. Stains, grim and the sink and bathtub drains didn't work - there was still water in the morning from where we brushed our teeth the night before.
Food - bad. The evening kickback was bland. If you blind folded me I wouldn't be able to tell if I was eating pasta or whatever else was there. Breakfast - the biscuts were so hard, the eggs were chewy, and the coffee tasted like it was old.
Everyone at the Drury Inn works very hard you could tell and everyone is nice. It's time the corporate people come and make updates, remodels, and overall so these people that work there can have something to work with and get the credit they deserve. I am really really surprised by the number of good reviews......

We visited Drury/Louisville East on Aug. 26. We were welcomed by a very nice gentleman that answered all our questions. He was very kind and always had a smile on his face. We approached him several times and he couldn't have been nicer. Everyone in the food area't was friendly, helpful and sweet. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and the pool was refreshing considering the outside temperature.

Husband and I just stayed one night at this Drury and we were very satisfied. Check in was easy and quick. Great room, clean, clean, clean! Everything we needed was available. Only drawback was the noise level of the AC.

Breakfast was good, hot and plenty available.

Would definitely stay again!

Nice facilities, quiet room, good breakfast, good price. We were there for a family event and this facility had a great online price and everything that we needed. We would stay there again. Stuff was friendly and helpful.
