We always stay at this hotel, when we come in for ballgame. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, price is reasonable. Close to everything, mall, restaurants, and Rupp arena. We are always pleased with the service.

The hotel is located in a congested area, but once the door was closed I did not hear the traffic. Even though I stayed in a smoke-free room, the first thing I noticed was that it smelled like smoke. After investigating, I found cigarette butts in one of the drawers. Everything else was clean.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am truly sorry that the housekeeper did not get the drawer cleaned out. There are times that guests do not always honor our smoke free policy. However, it was our fault for not catching it. I'm glad that everything else in the room was clean for you. We hope...

Very good value! A place where you can bring your pet at no additional charge! Comfortable bed! Good use of space. Had microwave and fridge in room. Study desk. Looked like it had been remodeled within the past few years. Good location for food and shopping. Right off the route 4 circle.

I booked this room on Priceline for about $45 with tax. The room wasn't very big but was clean. The two ladies I interacted with at the front desk were nice. The shower did not drain well, though, and they did not provide enough towels. Overall, the hotel was pretty quiet. It isn't anything fancy, but we were satisfied for...
