Courtyard Louisville East

Reviewed 18 July 2013

I have to say I was impressed by the fact there were equipment by the pool and whirlpool to enable guests to enjoy the facilities. I don't know the proper name but it allows someone physically challenged to safely enter the pool or whirlpool. It was easy to get into the hotel and main areas. The entrance to the pool and whirlpool were located far from the front of the building but that was the only downfall. Also the icemaker was all the way in the back. I think a central location would be more ideal. Otherwise, great hotel for any traveler.

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor room close to the entrance if you have any physical limitations. With children...

When we tried to check in to this hotel at 6:30 pm on a Friday, we were told our suite wasn't available, that they were sold out and could give us two regular rooms for half price, I explained this was unacceptable as we have a 4 year old and 1 year old. Then I was told after a few minutes, that we could still have a suite, but it would be a double/double, not the king we had reserved and that it wasn't ready yet. We came back at 10 pm, our room was ready and we were told we would get a discount of some sort for our trouble. The room itself was quite large, plenty of room for two adults and two kids. The bathtub didn't drain well, but overall a very nice suite. The pillows and bed were wonderful. We got a package that included breakfast, the lobby area where breakfast was served was updated and very modern. Breakfast was a good value, you order off a menu.
Now to the worst part, when I got the checkout info under the door the morning we were to check out, I found that not only did I not get the discount promised, but they actually over charged us by 19 dollars a night!.. When I went down to have this fixed, they did fix this, but actually only offered a total of a 12 dollar discount, I never complain, but this seems low for what we went through and all of the mistakes. For this reason, we wouldn't stay again, too bad, as this overall is a nice looking hotel and great location.

I can certainly understand how disappointing this must have been and I apologize for the trouble this caused you. I assure you that issues such as this, are far from typical. Your comments are very important to us and we will use this value feedback to improve upon our service and communication.

My husband and I are from Florida, and we recently stayed here for the Kentucky Derby and although not luxurious, this hotel exceeded our expectations. My only "issues" were with the size of the bathroom (small in comparison to newer hotels) and the in-room AC, which was just a tad noisy. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean which are the most important things I expect. Front desk service was good considering how busy they were and I particularly liked the lobby cafe which offered a simple, but satisfying menu. We would stay here again, although, next time we go to the Derby we may splurge on a hotel closer to the venue. For that reason, I feel this hotel was a good choice even though its location (proximity to the Derby) was not prime. All in all, they did a great job making this our Kentucky Derby "home away from home!"

Our family recently stayed here while my son was playing soccer in the area. It had been recently renovated, and was very clean. Beds were very comfortable with great pillows. Room size was perfect. Nice exercise room made keeping up with work out routine possible. Will stay here again!

Very nice hotel. Very clean rooms / lobby, staff friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Four couples came for the weekend. We all were very happy with this hotel.
Front desk, food service, bar staff, housekeeping are all most friendly & helpful.
Nice location - plenty of restaurants nearby, easy access to Interstate.

I'll stay here again.

Our family of 5 often has trouble finding hotels that will either allow 5 people (2 adults and 3 young children) to stay in one room, or that can accommodate us comfortably. The Courtyard was able to do both! We stayed in a double bed suite with a pull out sofa bed. The room with the double beds had a tv and was separated by a door to the sitting room that had the pull out sofa bed, another tv, desk, and a lot of space. It was all spacious. I loved the bathroom. It was not huge, but it had a mirror and countertop so I could get up earlier than the rest of my crew and get ready while everyone else remained asleep. The sofa was not very comfortable to sit on, but our son slept fine on the sofa bed. I wish the beds were queen instead of doubles, but that was the only real negative part of the room. If the rooms were the only thing to consider, we would definitely stay here again. My only reservation about booking here again has to do with the Bistro.
The food was fine but the service was very slow. If you have time to leisurely eat breakfast, do not let the Bistro deter you from staying here! If you are in need of eating quickly, you may want to consider the Waffle House across the street or planning to spend an hour waiting and eating. Our family was the only people there for breakfast and it took an hour for the food to be prepared and for us to eat. We had the time to spare this weekend, but usually when we are staying at a hotel (we stay at about 20 a year) we need to be somewhere early in the morning and a slow breakfast will not work. Again, there was nothing wrong with the food, which was "Starbucks" style, it just too awhile for us to get it.

We stayed here because our children were competing in an event at the MidAmerica Sports Center. The location was excellent! It was a 5 minute easy drive. It was also nice that Olive Garden was right by the hotel.

Thank you for the comments about your recent stay. I am glad to hear the extra large size of our double suite was a good fit for your family.

I apologize for the delay during breakfast. We typically are able to serve our Bistro food much more quickly and should have these food orders out within 8 to 10 min of your order.

I am happy to hear that you were pleased with the easy drive from our location to the MidAmerica Sports Center. We would love to have you back for another event and hope that the good nights rest allowed them to play their very best! Thanks again.

Regards,

Larry C
