Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tinsley1111 Excellent Hotel
Having stayed at this facility no fewer than twice each year for three years, if nothing else one thing can be said for this establishement: consistency. From walking into this Holiday Inn's foyer to departure, a guest can expect great staff attitudes, clean rooms and decent proximity (within minutes for each# to University of Louisville, Kentucky Exposition Center, SDF #aka, Standiford Field or Louisville International Airport), multile major federal highways and restaurants as well as courteous and round-the-clock airport pickup and drop off. With the world's ninth-largest commercial "airline" fleet (UPS) based in Louisville, one can either experience that lesson during the early morning hours as tens of UPS jet-airplanes begin "rounds" or sleep peacefully, as is the case here. The smallest guest rooms are more than spacious for the average businesman, providing a desk, ergonomic desk chair and having excellent Internet access. And only hotel by airport with a great basketball court.

I have been staying there since it was new. The bathtubs have designed rough areas on the bottom of the tub to minimize slipping. These are now black from accumulated dirt and the tub is white. All the tubs in the rooms I stayed are dirty. They need cleaning.

Reserved a non-smoking room, got put into a smoking room. Asked the front desk why and was told the manager moved some people around and there was nothing they could do. Didn't offer anything.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigBoredieselguy Excellent service, even during the busiest times.
I work for a company that has reserved a block of rooms with this Holiday Inn for the last 3 years. We journey down to Louisville for our industry's largest trade show, the Mid America Truck Show. This event draws in thousands of people and all the hotels in the area are booked solid. The Holiday Inn Airport South is no exception, but the hotel continues to provide excellent customer service, even during this challenging time for them.
We had the opportunity to move a bit closer to our trade show exhibit hall this year but chose to stay with the Holiday Inn because of the way they take care of their customers. They also have a great restaurant attached to the hotel. The food is great, reasonably priced and makes quick dining a breeze.
Our team also utitlized their conference room amenities this year and were provided great service when the meeting went longer than we thought, and the restaurant served us in our conference room! THANKS MUCH.
I would like to give a shout out to June, the general manager and Dawn, restaurant manager. They both went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and my team was well fed!!
I would highly recommend this hotel/restaurant to anyone staying in the area.

I travel here to work at the UPS world port often and I always use this hotel. Great place and it was built with quality because you can barely hear those in the other rooms. Nothing worse then being in a hotel and you can hear someone's low speaking phone conversation because the walls are paper thin. Always a great state. Rooms are A1

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by samson914 Great location, lousy late night experience
Hotel is in fantastic location near airport with many food options around. However, checking out late at night is complicated as lobby is frequently abandoned and quiet. On several occasions I have waited in excess of 10 minutes only to be greeted by an employee that has just awoken from the back office. Very nice employees, but poorly staffed in terms of numbers.
Never any recognition for Priority club membership.

Enjoyed every minute of the visit, from the walk up to the desk, the host was very pleasant and gracious, the ride up to my assigned room, the room was well prepaired. The restaurant staff and food was GREAT!!!. Most pleasant stay here in Louisville, period. Thank you to all your staff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cmmct21 Won't go back
Stay was for 3 nights. Requested non-smoking room, but was given a smoking room. Attempt had been made to mask the odor, but this had not been successful. The room colors were such that they showed every nick and scrape on the walls and there were many. Day 1 was OK. Day 2, the room key had not been programmed correctly. After discovering that it didn't work, the desk reprogrammed the key without apology or any other comment. It felt as if it were an imposition for the clerk to correct the problem. Houskeeping removed the used towels, but did not replace them. The room was not vacuumed. Day 3, same sheets, bathroom was not cleaned, wastebasket was not emptied, no vacuuming, used towels and bath mat were removed, but not replaced, leaving me with a hand towel and a wash cloth. The service in the restaurant was good, but the food was less than average. Tried their best wine, which tasted like cough syrup. At least their scotch was much better. The staff acted as if they just didn't care about the guests as they were very indifferent. Upon leaving leaving, there wasn't even a thank you. This ranks as my worst stay at a HI and I have had many.

My wife and I have beening staying once or sometimes twice a month at your facility since last June. We've continued to stay there only since we found the place.
Yeah the elevators are a bit slow as someone mentioned, but it's not really a deal breaker. It always very clean in the lobby and in the rooms also. It is a bit pricy for a weekend night sometimes, in my opinion. That's why I didn't give an excellent on the value rating.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sumaguru Holiday Inn Louisville Kentucky
It is one of the ordinary Holiday Inn property at best. There was no recognition of being a gold priority member. The staff did not look motivated. Even cursory good morning was often not reciprocated. Any ways it matches up with rather low standards of customer service which is the norm in most American hotels in comparision with Asia / Middle East.

As a Platinum Priority Club member, I was not given the same level service I received at most other locations in the Louisville area. I only stay here when the other locations do not have space. The elevators are very slow for what looks like a newer hotel and when on the 6th or 5th floor I can walk up and down faster than the elevators move.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HBomb Apathetic Front Desk
I have stayed at this hotel about 10 times as our company gets great rates and we have quarterly meetings here. Rooms are clean and updated and the grill next door has average food but great service (Dawn takes awesome care of us!)
One thing that is always consistent is the poor service from the front desk employees. I am a Platinum member and stay at Holiday Inn properties between 75 - 100 nights per year. The service I get from the front desk evey time I am at this hotel is terrible. Always have to ask for breakfast coupons and it seems when I check in they are more interested in watching the TV in the lounge or eating than, taking care of their customers. It just seems like they do not care.
I would not stay at this hotel if I did not have to.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dwe6666 Bill Dispute
I had several issues with my stay at this Holiday Inn, I am a Platinum member and stay over 150 nights a year at Holiday Inn's typically. When I checked out the desk clerk, who took several minutes to come out from behind the wall even though it was 6am, was unable to give me a receipt or any other indication of the amount of my bill, he threw his hands up and said " i DON'T KNOW WHATS GOING ON, SOMEBODY ELSE WILL HAVE TO FIGURE THIS OUT". When I was billed, I was charged three days for one night, since they did not check me out due to the previously mentioned desk clerk they charged me for three days even though I stayed ONE day. This amounted to a charge of over $ 400 for ONE day. I left several voice mails and e mails with no repy other than finally receiving an e mail with the word " folio" typed in and the receipt attached. No greeting, no how ya doin , no contact information , nothing at all other than the receipt indicating I stayed three days which was in fact not true, I stayed ONE day, I repeat ONE day.
PS- I left a review earlier and it was deleted somehow, this hotel is the absolute worst hospitality I have ever received in over 15 years as a business traveller.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by yama1102 Not really friendly
I stay various hotels in the Priority Club group throughout a year. And, this hotel offered me the least enjoyable stay so far.
1) A receptionist was not really friendly when I checked in.
2) I am a platinum member of the Priority Club; but, she did not recognize me as a Priory Club member.
3) She did not explain anything about amenities at the hotel not even a location of an elevator.
4) The hotel website has a wrong direction. My friend was supposed to pick me up when I checked out and he was directed to the different Holiday Inn near this hotel.
I would stay some place else next time if I have a chance to stay in Louisville area.

I discovered this hotel several years ago as an alternative to the Jamison. This place, while not "new" still looks and smells new. The wireless internet works all the time and is free. Transportation to and from either the airport terminal or Edgewood is very reliable 24/7. Free hot breakfast included with the price. Restaurant and bar are very good and reasonably priced. It's about $20 more per night than the Jamison, but way more than worth its price.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MRB12345 Nice & New but Cold & Uninviting
Hotel was clean and nice but the decor was cold and uninviting (maybe a little too modern for my taste). The front desk employees (women) were not so friendly. Almost felt like I was bothering them if I asked them anything. The breakfast buffet (which was for a price) was less than what other hotels offer as their continental breakfast. Another person in our group booked a non-smoking room but was put in a smoking room on the smoking floor. Front desk was not accomodating so they actually had to call customer care to get moved to another room... which was past midnight before this was done. For all that the price was too high.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DLenn Lovely rooms!
We really enjoyed our stay here! The rooms were very clean and nice! Quiet hotel, not loud at all. The only downfall was their sportsbar and grill. We went there one night for dinner. We seated ourselves and waited for someone to come to our table with menus. It was 7pm on a Monday and there were other customers there. We waited for 10 min and saw no employee in the entire dining room! That's when I noticed that others appeared to be waiting for their food. That's when we decided to leave. But there are other food options close by so it wasn't too inconvenient. Otherwise, the hotel staff was very accomodating and our experience was great! We would return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by clubmember Nice newer hotel
I love this hotel because they are a newer hotel, but have smoking rooms. I understand many people do not smoke and can not tolerate it. This hotel has many rooms and they reserve some for smokers. The lounge/restaurant is very nice with a friendly staff and good food.
My only criticism is the desk staff does not greet platinum members any different than walk ins.
Overall a great hotel

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cheesemonger Check-In Staff is Very Lacking
The staff did not greet me as a Priority Member, although my paperwork was ready.
Every time I came to the desk, the staff was always in the back and I had to wait.
They were not very engaging and didn't smile.
I had an early day one morning and was at the desk at 430am asking a question. When the man came out from the back, he obviously had been asleep and was wearing a dirty shirt with tears in it. He didn't have on a name tag; no way to be sure he was even an employee.
And another thing, get a new mouse pad for the front desk. The one there now is filthy!!!
The staff in the adjacent restaurant was the opposite, very engaging; however, the food was sub-par.
