Great location off the interstate and within minutes to many shopping places, food and attractions. CLEAN!! Due to the virtual check-in we didn't talk to a single staff member the two nights we stayed there. Very odd to us but honestly kind of nice. Breakfast was great, hot sandwiches individually wrapped, oatmeal, yogurts, fruit, many choices along with juice and coffee. Only glitch was 8 AM housekeeping staff in the next room talking very loudly. I know 8 isn't early but common courtesy would be to speak quietly and try not to disturb other guests.

I’ve stayed here a couple of times while passing though Kentucky on ax extended road trip. I like staying at this hotel for the following reasons:
1) The location is convenient, with shops, restaurants and a gas station all close by
2) The rooms are nice and I’ve had relatively no issues (once the AC unit was loud but that happens)
3) The staff is very helpful and friendly and I’ve noticed the same people working here which is a positive sign about the hotel management
4) The lobby area is very nice and spacious, with a variety of food and drinks to choose from
5) The complimentary breakfast is very nice
6) If you forget toiletries (I forgot my toothbrush once) the hotel staff has complimentary replacements
7) The ice maker is on the first floor which is convenient for refilling a cooler

Other things people may like:
- There are restaurants within walking distance
- Pets are allowed and there’s a dog walking area with grass and trees

Regarding the rooms, I’ve found them very quiet due to the location being away from the main roads and highways. Once the AC unit was loud, but I wear earplugs and it wasn’t an issue. Overall I like this hotel when I’m just passing through for the night, and would recommend it for anyone looking for a nice hotel in a convenient location.

We stayed in this hotel in Louisville- first time we stayed at a Tru by Hilton before. It was very modern and trendy. In the lobby, they had snacks, coffee, pool table, air hockey table, board games, etc. It was nice to have some fun things to do if you didn’t want to go out. They also had a fitness room.

Our room was very nice and clean. I liked the wood flooring instead of carpet; it just seemed cleaner. The beds were so comfortable we got a great night sleep.

Their breakfast was good and they had a cool setup for seating. You served yourself but they did have scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, oatmeal, cereal, etc. - plenty to eat.

The only thing I did not like was that they did not have any lamps by the beds just overhead lights. I like to read at night so that was a little inconvenient.

There were a few restaurants that were close by and a Main Event if you have kids with you. We ate El Nopel and it was delicious.

Overall, it was a great hotel and I would definitely stay there again.

This is brand new hotel. As all Tru properties are, it is a hip, joyful, and a fun hotel. I saw another review for this place complaining about the lack of coffee machines or carpet etc. in the room. Complaining about those kind of things for Tru is not much different from buying a Yugo (if you don't know what it is, look it up) and then complaining about the car not having Bose speakers, in-dashboard nav system, and heated leather seats. Tru hotels are designed with budget travelers in mind for short stays. I would not recommend them for large families (large as in number of family members, not weight of family members). Families with multiple kids or poly families traveling with all of their spouses together should look into staying at other hotels that provide carpets and coffee machines.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel! After booking the room over the phone I was emailed like any other hotel with my reservation...then things went from typical to fantastic! We received a text of all things just as we had arrived in Louisville (an check in wasn't until upon arrival and they meant it) we decided to go ahead an see if it was possible to check in early before heading out to sight seeing for the day. When we arrived the staff at the front desk were wonderful and so helpful they had our room ready an greatest us with bottled water an popcorn. The hotel lobby area is bright, clean and a lot of FUN! They front desk isn't the normal front desk an either is the lobby there is tons of fun seating along with a pool table, fooze table, board games and a popcorn bar an hot beverages. The room was just as nice clean, bright with incredibly comfy beds an the walk in shower was perfect. The next morning the breakfast was awesome with tons to choose from an everything tasted great!! We plan to look for Tru Hotels where we go thank you for the amazing stay!!

I am a Hilton Honors member and stay normally at Hamptons or Homewoods. This was my first stay at a Tru. The rooms are very utilitarian. Everything was very clean. The shower was a walk-in with great hot water. The best thing was breakfast! I’m an “oatmeal eater”. Usually the Hamptons have raisins and sugar. This place has a virtual buffet of goodies to add to your oats—almonds, cranberries, fresh pineapple, brown sugar. The in-house convenient store was very attractive and convenient, too. I will be back.

The common areas on this hotel were amazing. Breakfast area was spacious with lots of food options and seating. I liked the counter drink/snack availability. The pool table, TVs, games, etc in the lobby were great for those just wanting to hang out.

The room itself was contemporary and very simple...which is the design of Tru. I found it a bit too bare for my tastes, but many like that style. I DID like the dispensers of soap/shampoo/conditioner. Just made it easier to use as much as you needed and not have to ask for more. And the bed was very comfortable.

My only hangup with the stay was that I did a pre-pay deal which went awry. (I was charged 2x.) It took me 10 days and multiple phone calls to get it straightened out. The discount for pre-paying the room wasn't worth the hassle in my opinion.
