Charging for a mediocre breakfast, silly.

I ordered chicken wings and they tasted like they were taken out of the microwave, even tough the menu said they are crispy...

All amenities were very nice; the breakfast buffet was particularly good, and the waitress was very friendly and personable. The room was clean and comfortable, and we actually had a good night's sleep; something that you don't always get away from home. The best part of the stay was the complimentary shuttle service between the H.I. and Freedom Hall at the fairgrounds, where we attended a show. NOT having to drive over and fight the traffic was worth its weight in gold!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buddy61 Room clean and service excellent
Location is excellent. Hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. Air conditioning in friends room did not work well but ours was very good. Parking was adequate and felt safe. Room was very quit even though we were very close to airport. I would recommend this hotel and will definitely try to stay at this location in the future.

When I lost my mother's ring in the pillow on the bed the staff went above and beyond to find if for me. I could not believe I could not find it but they had it for me when I came back later that evening. This meant a great deal to me and I will definitely return to this hotel in the future. The only downside I found in the hotel is that the exerise equipment could use a little attention.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elizabeth811 Very attentive staff!
From the time I arrived, until the time I left, I was very impressed with the staff at this Holiday Inn! Garret, at the front desk, was very helpful with all aspects of my stay,(questions about area, shuttle service,etc.). The wait staff, Tina, Brandy, Connie, and Renata, greeted me warmly every time I was in the restaurant. As a female traveling alone, this was very important to me. I stayed for one week and every day was made easier because they made me feel welcome. Yes, the bed was extremely comfortable, the sunset view from the room was great, and my room was nice and clean too! Thanks to all of you!!

Hotel was okay. Could hear the neighbors and aircraft, combined with an uncomfortable bed made it unpleasant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Robt32 No wi-fi service in our room.
Staff and service were fine but there was no wi-fi service in our room due to inadequate wi-fi signal. When we advised the front desk of our problem they offered to send a technician to our room to help us access the Internet and check email. We had four different devices, none of which could pick up the wi-fi signal. The problem was inadequate signal strength not a problem with our devices or our ability to use them to access the Internet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by robmar Facility was great and the staff were friendly and helpful.
We picked this location because it was close to the Louisville airport but found that it was very convenient for getting to downtown and other nearby attractions. It was near the highway but we couldn't hear the highway noise, or even the airliner noise. Having breakfast in the hotel cafe was nice and the breakfast buffet had a good variety of food. The night we arrived we were tired from traveling so we ate dinner in the cafe; the service and the food were excellent. Our room was a nice size and the bedroom and bathroom were well maintained. The king size bed was comfortable. If in the area we would stay at the hotel again. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

Loved staying at this hotel have stayed there several times. The last time they gave me a room that was already pre occupied. It looked like it belonged to a Military person. Grateful his backpack was the only thing in the room. I really felt uncomfortable and now I am paranoid when I get rooms at motels. U walk in on the wrong person and things might not go well. Other then that the staff and cleanliness of the hotel was wonderful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Valdale Rooms were fine but food service wasn't.
When we arrived we were told the breakfast buffet (included in our package) was open until 11. We got there at 9 and discovered it would close at 10, but we had time. The second day we arrived at 9:45 and they said the buffet was closed. We had to order off the menu. I asked for the fruit of the day and the waitress stated they would have to cut it up and was annoyed that I still wanted it, which happened to be blueberries and strawberries - not that much work. Then when my son wanted another OJ she said we would have to pay extra for it. But if the buffet was open as it should have been he could have had it - again not very cooperative. Also the UPS jets flew very close over the hotel all night and they were pretty loud, we were on the top floor so that didn't help. The pool was also very small. The wifi was so slow that you couldn't use it.

I have been staying at the Holiday Inn - Fair/Expo Center in Louisville, KY 3+ nights per week since February 2013 for a job that I am on. I will be here through September. As a business traveler for 10+ years, I will say that this is by far the best hotel that I have stayed in from an overall standpoint. I have gotten to know the staff very well over the past few months and they have all gone out of their way to make sure that my stay is nothing but the best. They know that it is hard to be away from your family for such an extended period of time and have become essentially my extended family. The General Manager, Jeff, goes out of his way each and every day to greet me and make sure there is nothing that I need. When Jeff is not there, Denise, the Assistant Manager, makes sure to do the same. I spend most of my evenings in the hotel restaurant/bar catching up on emails and having a cocktail or two. Amanda, who is typically behind the bar, is by far the best bartender that I have ever come across. Not only does she pour a great drink, but she is friendly and more than pleasant to be around as well. The waitress, Ashley, is always cheerful and fun to be around. She always takes time to stop and ask me how I am and how my family is, and begs me to bring my wife and son with me for a stay. I believe that the chef, Amber, should be working at a 5 star restaurant. She has never served a bad meal, and has even made special dishes to suit my taste considering I've probably eaten everything on the menu now many times. I have also gotten to know Jennifer and Garrett over the past few weeks, as they are newer additions to the hotel staff, and both have been more than friendly and helpful. This is a hotel that I will come to again and again as business calls, and have recommended several of my colleagues to stay at. They set the bar that I hope other hotels will strive to reach. Jeff and his staff should be commended for the job that they do on a daily basis.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WorkTD Where is the front desk personnel when you need them
While the property is quite nice the personnel is lacking. On the morning we were to check out there was no bill under our door and no personnel to be found at the front desk. Ultimately I had to go into the dining area to see if they could find someone - but believe me they made nsure I know they would not be providng breakfast that moring. i thought checking out was supposed to be the easy part of the trip. Not at this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Nice place;Restaurant left a lot to be desired
The place was nice and the location was great. The restaurant was out of a lot of food for a Saturday night. The place was pretty busy, so there should have been more food for the menu offerings on hand. On Sunday for the buffet, it was stated that it was open until 11 AM. We went down about 10:10 to be told they were closing up the buffet early, but we could take some of the leftover food for a reduced price!! What!!?? There wasn't even that much left to choose from, so we had to walk and find another place to eat. Seems the restaurant needs better managing!!

Hotel was very clean and service was excellent, but TV reception was poor, very hard to figure out where my favorite channels were and many times when I found the my channels the digital quality of the video was constantly breaking up with macorblocking. Also I discovered fridge was unplugged after the drinks I put in the night before were warm in the morning. When I plugged fridge in it ran for awhile and then the fan started making noise in middle of the night. appears fan bearings are going bad..
The only other thing it seemed the thermostat did not always turn off AC and it would get cold.

If you don't upgrade your room you are stuck with basic kitchen table style chairs, even though the rooms are large and there is an obvious place for a nice large chair. Nice hotel, just needs decent furniture.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JGH49 Not worth the price
Limited parking....I travel the southeast and this is the first motel I have stayed in that do not offer anything extra to make you feel welcome....breakfast...popcorn...cookie...nothing. A piece of toast was $3.00.
The first day the room was not ready...then the commode didn't work so maintance stayed for a while ..finally left and I tried turning on the TV. Well, that didn't work so I had to have them back up to replace the cable box. It was 7:35 before I had the room all to myself. Next morning the air/heat unit started making a loud noise and had to have the repairmen back.
Most people that travel allot appreciate the little things and this motel fell short.
I stay in Louisville at least twice a year but do not plan on staying here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin1979 Staff was very accomodating and friendly.
My family and I stayed at this hotel before leaving for our Disney trip and they made some special arrangements so we would be able to ride the hotel shuttle to the airport in time to catch our flight. The staff was very friendly and upon our return, even asked us how the vacation was. I will stay in this hotel again and would recommend you do the same.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Your business is not needed
On the way to Louisville I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express about 90 miles away the night before. That location provided a free breakfast and a free bottle of water and snacks with the water and snacks a function of my being a Priority Club Member. I asked at this venue about free water or free breakfast and I was told that I would have to be a Platinum Priority Club Member to get free breakfast and my friend commented that if I got up to that level that then Holiday Inn would come up with a "Double" Platinum Priority Club level. I will not be staying here again, nor will my companions who travel with me on business as there are better values in the immediate area and one gets the feel of being nickel and dimed at this venue with being charged for a buffet style breakfast that was free at a franchise less than two hours away. I have stayed here before but this will be it for me and you can make your money on the captive college crowd that comes to town as there are more choices than ever before.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jjbaker Didn't provide the service I was promised
Made reservations well in advance and selected this hotel because it was close to the airport. Prior to departing for Louisville I contacted the hotel to check on a shuttle and was told that they had one and it started running at 6:00 am. I explained that I had a 6 am flight and would need to leave at around 4:30 – 5:00 am. The young lady I spoke to said that wasn’t a problem and that because the shuttle wasn't running at that time the hotel would pay for the taxi.
However that story changed after I arrived. Once I arrived and tried to set up a ride to the airport the next morning I was told by the desk manager that if needed to depart at 4:45 am I would have to pay for the taxi. Although the cab ride was only $10.00 it's a matter principle that I was told one thing prior to arrival and then something entirely different after I arrived.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by slvrhntr Don't eat the breakfast!
The hotel, the room, and the front desk staff were all wonderful! I really was enjoying the hotel until I got to breakfast and ran into the breakfast staff. There were two people attending the dining room, a male (Erick) and a female.
Both were glued to the back of the bar, and very grudginly provided any service whatsoever to the diners. In fact, the female was either reading a paper or on her phone messaging, and never left the back of the bar once while I ate. That left Erick to serve those of us eating breakfast. While trying to signal for more coffee, I observed this "gentleman" sticking his finger in his mouth and he seemed to be "picking" his back teeth. This is the guy who brought the silverwaqre, the juice, and the coffee. He did NOT wash his hands!
