Holiday Inn Airport & Fair/Expo Center
Ranked #58 of 98 Hotels in Louisville
Reviewed 26 April 2010

Both mornings I was awakened by a defective CO2 detector. The staff was great, but this followed a terrible experience with Holiday Inn company reservations. For the high price of the hotel, skip it. The details (like not being awakened by a CO2 detector) matter! I travel a lot, and never again on this hotel. The staff is wonderful though, without exception.

Check in was very easy and the lady at the front desk was very nice. She gave us keys to a room that was on the 2nd floor. When we got to the room there was someone already in the room. I went back to the receptionist and told her someone was already occupying that room, and she just said oh I gave you the wrong room number. It made me wonder the rest of the weekend who was given keys to my room.

We went to the bar and the bartender was very frazzled and not in a good mood to say the least, made us feel like we were not welcome there at all. She warmed up a little later. I think she was trying to do to much, she was the only staff other than the cook in the restaurant/bar.

This motel is not a convenient walk to the fairgrounds, if you wanted to drive it would be fine, but if you're walking don't stay here.

The simming pool is indoors, and was very tiny, but we never saw anyone in it.

All in all the hotel room was fine, and very clean.

We thought the rooms were small for the $160.00 and the bathroom door would not stay open. Bathroom was quite small. I discovered the morning we left, I was missing 2 containers of eyeshadow from my makeup bag. I reported it to the desk, but was never notified if they had pursued this issue.
It is very hard to find when looking for it the first time. We much prefer Holiday Inn Express for the value and all the extras, especially the large rooms.

The hotel was nice: clean, comfortable and convenient to the Expo Center and close to the airport. It sits back off the main highway and is a little hard to find. The scenery is dreary but the convenient location made up for that. Help at the front desk (Melissa) went above and beyond with exceptional service. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are attending something in the vicinity of the Expo Center.

I am really enjoying my stay here. I got a $75 weekend rate in Feb '09. There's a small heated pool and a restaurant right off the lobby area. It was convenient on a day like today with bad weather. Prices are reasonable and the food is tasty. The building is only 1 year old and everything is in good shape. Furnishings are modern. The bed is comfortable. I'll definitely stay here again when I return. It's a great deal and close to the airport and Churchill Downs. It's hard to find the entrance, esp in the dark. Otherwise, not much else to complain about.
