Econo Lodge Downtown Louisville, Louisville
Great value and location
Third time staying at the downtown econo lodge and would come back for sure. Good free breakfast. Rooms are nice and location is perfect. When we come back to Louisville this is where we stay.

All the vents full of dust. Cigarette butts all over property. Women knocking on door at night. Omni hotel 5 4 star across street only 60.00 more.

Great price point
Pleasantly surprised to say the least-but to elaborate-a friend and I came into town for a concert and have never stayed downtown-when I booked I priced all hotels in walking distance to the KFC Yum center and Economic Lodge beat the others out of the water-and usually there would be a reason-but luckily it was a wonderful deal all around!-to find anything to complain about at this point feels petty-so I will just leave it!-Just make sure u get ur bearings correct before taking off on foot because like any inner city if u wander too far in the wrong direction ur level of safety can change-(we did not have any problems at all by the way)-

Not worth the money!
The rates were outrageous for how small the rooms are. There was blood on our sheets. Front desk hardly ever answers the phone. They messed our bill up and charged my card when they weren’t suppose to. The WiFi didn’t work and the tv quit working twice.

Stay only to save money...
This hotel served as an inexpensive overnight stay in the downtown area. Carpet in poor condition, clipped toenails on the carpet, toilet seat broken and loose, deadbolt would not lock and the outside access rooms were very noisy throughout the night. We didn't attempt to breakfast.
