I don’t have many complaints about my stay or service my room was clean upon arrival my towels fresh plenty of parking and I liked the breakfast I did find that my pull out bed was broken and there were no extra blankets for it and room service tried to rush me to check out she was very rude kept coming back 2 hours before checkout She never cleaned my room during my stay but wanted to rush me out The other things I think need improvement are the carpets in the halls and the pool

I chose not to use it because it’s small and looked cloudy An update is definitely needed there but everything else was great The staff was amazing for the most part and nothing happened to my car in the lot


The hotel has definitely seen better days My pillows were so flat they felt as though they had been used a million times ! The breakfast while plentiful was not tasty Something was just not right from the bacon, to the made to order omelettes, and even the oatmeal and this was expressed by everyone in my group

Much different taste than other Embassy suites I’ve visited The staff and everyone was nice but hotel needs a bit more renovations and updating Indoor pool is small and stayed crowded so I did not use

Brittany Kennedy

This is my 2nd time starting at this particular location It’s always clean and the staff has always had great customer service The manager went out of his way to help with our booking

And don’t let me forget the breakfast It was amazing once again We have not been disappointed yet I recommend the stay and we will definitely be staying again in the future

This place exceeded my expectations! Very nice location Very clean throughout Bed and pillows were very comfortable

Breakfast was great with a lot of options They do not have a pool anymore so I wish they would remove the photos but overall this is a great place to stay! We will definitely stay again in the future! Highly recommend!!!

Joshua Brown

The staff was very friendly! The rooms were super clean!! It’s right by a Mexican restaurant, a golden corral, and a Bob Evans Oh and Stake and shake and a Dollar tree is right across the street! I stayed 5 nights there, not 1 bad experience My only complaint is if there’s smokers smoking outside the room, then it affects the inner air quality, so double check your ac for buildup!

Jessica Ness

After checking in and going to our room, our door was open and the bathroom & sink area didn’t look like it was clean They did send someone over right away to clean it, but still not the way we wanted to start our stayThe breakfast was terrible

Whoever made the hot food did a good job, but everything else was a disaster No spoons, no napkins, 1 yogurt cup, a few cereal options, empty containers and the drink dispenser wasn’t turned on It was like they forgot to restock everythingThe lady working the front desk was also all over the place on her phone Overall terrible experience

Seelbach Hotel was a beautiful hotel with great history in a great spot in Louisville within a 10 minute drive of everything you want to see in the city except Churchill Downs which is a few minutes further While it was nice, there were a few things that will prevent me from returning and staying there again1) Parking is not free

Not a huge deal, but for the price you pay, parking should be included for guests2) Lack of house maid service I don’t need my room cleaned everyday but I stayed there 4 nights and never received it Heck, they could have at least emptied my trash cans and checked toiletries at the minimum Even on a day where I request maid service early and they said they would have them stop by, I did not get it3) Shower was gross and did not drain4) No Water in the rooms They have a cooler by the front desk and they charge you for them, but what is funny is you can ask them for water and they will give you some for free So when I grabbed a water, why didn’t you let me know as a guest in your hotel that they have free waters for guests?I was just disappointed in the service I got for the price I paid

Ryan Brothers

The building is beautiful, and old but well maintained and allergy friendly The bathroom in our room was tiny, but functional We told the front desk about my feather allergy and they made sure the room was cleaned, aired out, and the filter for the AC unit was swapped before our stay

While we were there it was difficult to get the attention of the front staff sometimes The phone key system needs to be more fluid It’s cool, and means you don’t have to have a physical key from the hotel, but it is just not there yet The physical key we had was much easier to use during our stayI would stay at this hotel again if I was in the area

Jerry Wukawitz

I stayed 4 nights during a National Volleyball Tournament (4/7/22 – 4/11/22) The room was spacious and well maintained for being an older hotel Everyone on staff was very polite and accommodating, and made sure everything was going well during the entire stay

Housekeeping also did an excellent job freshening up the room on a daily basisSaturday night, we did a “history of the hotel” tour with hotel security supervisor, Patrick He brought us to many “behind the scenes” areas and rooms of the hotel The Rathskeller room in the basement was one of the coolest rooms I’ve ever seen, and the stories of all the historical key players that have ties to it were amazing Never saw the ghosts who are claimed to haunt the hotel, but I was always looking! Very intriguing!Old Seelbach Bar was fantastic! Every kind of bourbon you could think of! It was an awesome ambience and service was excellent Several parents from our team came downtown to hang out and I brought them to the Old Seelbach Bar between venues were were visiting Their experience in the bar and the front lobby was enough to get their interest to stay there in the futureSpecial THANK YOU to: Alicia, Camrann & Patrick from hotel staff and Virginia & David from bell/valet service for being so kind and making my experience the best it could be! I will be back!

Hotel is nothing extremely fancy but it’s a great place to stay if you want to be downtown for a night or two but don’t want to spend $200-$400 a night! Room were very clean and no weird smells They provide free tampon and pads for women who need them It’s in walking distance of many restaurants, bars, and clubs

I don’t remember the front desk lady’s name but she was a black woman in her 20’s or 30’s and she seriously was the nicest hotel desk person I’ve ever met in my life Like she was so nice and sweet I would give her 10/10 if she had her own google review page There is a $15 a night parking fee but it’s downtown Louisville so you’re gonna have to pay to park anywhere

Cecelia Grotz

The rooms were small and in need of updating The bed frames were made from plywood and creaked with the slightest movement There was only 1 electrical outlet in the bathroom and only one on one side of the bed and none on the other

We ended up moving a lamp with an outlet in the base so we had an outlet on each side of the bedThe hotel is also about a block from a fire station, so if you’re looking for a nice, quiet stay, this is not the hotel for you The hotel even has a sign at the desk that states as muchThe upside is that the staff was very friendly and the room was clean

Michael and Tara Watts

Hotel was up to date, nice location and modern in style However the walls were paper thin and we could hear the conversation of our neighbors as if they were in our room A little annoying when you want to sleep

The cleanliness of the bathroom and room could use some improvement The linens were clean and shower and toliet, but you can tell it doesn’t get a thorough cleaning A used spoon was on the shelf in our closet There was splatter of something on the bathroom walls and door There was also a smear of something on the shelf under the sink with the hand towels Floor was a bit dirty Not the cleanest place, but unfortunately we have also stayed at places worse

Madison Wozniak

Close to the interstate but not close enough to get road noise, rooms are nice and have very high quality beds Staff were extremely polite and were helpful with any issue we had (Primarily an extremely minor issue with the business center) It’s beside a really nice shopping center so if you want something to do after you check in if you get there early, you can easily walk to the shops and enjoy

Breakfast & Dinner were fantastic, my only nitpick was the biscuits burnt a bit on the bottom but that’s not their fault at all, the warmer did that and there’s no way to prevent it while still keeping them warm


The staff here is exceptional! Everyone is friendly and helpful The building is modern and well laid out The room was clean and spacious

The breakfast was great with plenty of variety There are several restaurants within walking distance and lots of shopping The security detail for the shops was out all night and kept the parking lot secure

Katharine Nowlin

The staff is FANTASTIC, with exception of the super tall male manager who is an absolute jerk—we overheard him on the phone with someone providing ‘customer service’ and he told them to go book somewhere else if they didn’t like his rates…and the experience we had directly with him, he was very hands off ‘not my problem’ when we simply were inquiring about the difference in the rates quoted online vs when we checked in-it’s wasn’t a big deal we were simply just asking BUT outside of that jerk, the staff was amazing, especially the dining staff and the housekeeping staff…everyone is refreshingly friendly and seem to find joy in their jobs

The hotel was exactly like it is pictured The pool area is clean but heavily chlorinated (messes with your smell after spending much time in there) The rooms are very clean, and well stocked The breakfast was really good, typically we would eat out for all meals but this breakfast had a good selection and the quality was above standards so there was no need to search for edible food elsewhere The nightly dinner was pretty good…with as many young children staying at this hotel I had expected to see a few more options for kids other than a hot dog, but what they did have was good I would have rated the hotel a five, but that main male manager is the only reason I had to take it down to a four Would recommend staying here

A very nice hotel with plenty of rooms that are well kept The staff were all friendly and helpful, they answer the phone promptly and check in was easy We had a wonderful stay here for derby weekend and would absolutely stay again

we had three rooms and each one was clean The lobby is beautiful, and the hotel was easy to locate and is close to the lovely downtown area of Louisville

Jill & Greyson Kohrs

Was very pleased with the price and quality of this hotel Very clean and modern Staff was over the top amazing! Lamont took great pride and care in preparing the breakfast and keeping the cafe spotless even when it was busy

Give this man a raise! He’s amazing! If he can impress that upon me his dedication and care in 10 min You have someone special on your hands

Kristi U

Great location within walking distance of so many attractions The hotel is clean and the atmosphere is quite peaceful Our room was very clean and pretty spacious

Included a king bed, couch, refrigerator, microwave, and nice size shower The bed was incredibly comfy!The breakfast needs some help There was a good variety including bread, bagels, pancakes, eggs, potatoes, and sausage The eggs were not hot, the sausage patties were not cooked done, the sausage links were overcooked and greasy Good juice variety and there were a couple different Greek yogurt flavorsI will return, yet I will probably skip the breakfast

Desk staff was extremely courteousFacility location is great for the Expo Center!Limited WiFi in our third floor roomCounters clean

Floors swept Fridge clean inside Good AC Window also opened Nice TV Front desk staffed whenever we were in the lobbyDid not hear the planes at the airportSheets clean, but had multiple visible stains Accumulated dirt and grime in corners of bathroom and in cabinetry/closer Back security door isn’t consistently closed by guests despite sign requesting it be closedNot sure if I was informed in advance about 100 security deposit when I booked the room I was surprised by it at check-in, but I might have missed it in reservation detailsWill probably stay further out from the Expo Center next visit at another brand hotel because the price was high for the room quality This is a great location if you must be close and the people are great

Ebony Burks

I booked 2 rooms days for May 26-29 before my arrival I also called twice to let staff know that I would be arriving around 2am Friday morning I was driving from South Carolina

I was advised that everything will be fine upon my arrival I get to the property and was greeted unpleasant just to be told that they only had one of my rooms available We arrived around 1:40 am Friday morning so I was confused on why both of my rooms weren’t available I asked multiple times how and why did this happen I offered to go get my phone out of the car to show the front desk attendant my booking confirmation Initially I was told I don’t need to get my phone because they had no extra rooms to accommodate me and my other guest( I had a total of 3 people including myself) I asked if I could speak with a manager to sort this out I was told I could at 9am Then I was told I could go get my phone to show my confirmation But to no avail! Because the attendant calls the manger I assume and tells them I do have a confirmation for two rooms So she offers me a room for only one night After she ends the call and my mother and I are discussing amongst ourselves we will still have to figure out what we were going to do about the extra nights we needed the front desk attendant continues to yell and disrespect me and “says that’s what you get for booking online” I can’t magically make a room appear ” Not once was I rude until she decided she wanted to yell and curse at me The police were called on my mother and I all because I wanted an explanation My mother never had a conversation with the attendant yet when she called the police she stated that we both were aggressive and wanted us removed from her property We weren’t the aggressors She was And to conduct that type of behavior towards someone in your work establishment is unacceptable and very unprofessional Thank you for the example of how SureStay by Best Western in Louisville Ky treats certain customers!! I only gave 1 star because I could post without leaving a rating


Overall great stay We stayed in the king suite and it was clean The breakfast was a good spread

The reason for a 4 star is because the sofa bed mattress had some red stains and was not nice to see so the couple ended up sleep on just the couch and the floor Close to the Kentucky Derby, like a 10 min drive and if absolutely needed an hour walk

Jordan Yoshimine

Needed a little getaway and have enjoyed staying at Staybridge locations because of the larger suite-like rooms The price was right so I booked for 3 nights I had read some reviews that had me concerned, but had no complaints whatsoever with this hotel

Staff were very friendly–from the front desk staff to the housekeeping staff This looks like it was one of the first Staybridge properties built, but it has aged well and the rooms were clean, comfortable and roomy and seems updated This location is very centrally located and there are numerous restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive The outdoor pool was not yet open I would imagine it would be open for the summer months I had their breakfast which was pretty good Eggs, bacon, wafflesand the other normal hotel breakfast type items I would highly recommend this hotel

Aleena Dicken

This was an experience and just wait until you unfortunately meet the front desk lady that is supposed to be the GM She was very rude to me when I called to ask her questions on why she charged my friend a pet fee when he didn’t even have a pet, I did and I visited with my service dog that lives in Louisville On top of that she continued to lie to me over the phone and said she expressed to my friend that he was going to be charged extra which she didn’t

The only thing that was expressed to me was have him on a leash I would of just taken my dog home if I would have known my friend was going to be charged She also expressed there is signs all over the hotel saying you will be charged but again communication in this business is key and when I initially brought my dog in the first time and they said he just needs a lash that would have been a good time to tell us we were going to be charged The hotel was not very clean, bugs all over the place His refrigerator broke on him Also the A/C was not cold or didn’t work because it felt like a Sauna when you walked in I personally would not have anything negative to say but when I called to take to the GM she was very unhelpful and rude She clearly has no customer service Good luck if you plan on staying at this hotel

Summer Jeanine

Not Staybridge quality Only plus it was clean and bed was comfortable We are Diamond Spire Elites

They upgraded me day of to a King Suite Girl on phone was an absolute sweetheart Woman at desk this morning not so much None of rooms have 2 queen beds I was told which was fine for just myself and my little girl But bigger families may struggle with one bed Only Kings and pullout couch Only stayed one night Bathroom very run down Bottom of shower peeling so badly that sharp edges sticking up No hot water in sink Luke warm Toilet seat looks melted Horrible quality lighting in mirror area Air conditioning system is in closet in bedroom and very loud to point I had to wear my noise canceling earbuds Everytime it kicked on it woke us up I told frontdesk lady in morning and she was very ksera and said “Oh yes it is loud” Also didn’t apologize for shaddy bathroom or non Staybridge quality breakfast It is equal to an express breakfast Not Staybridge quality Honestly would have rather express because at least I would’ve gotten cinnabon rolls Not even cheese for powder eggs was available Waffle maker didn’t even have spray Note up they spray each morning Well her waffle was dry and stuck So maybe spray it more than once a morning Overall polite staff except older woman on checkout day She made my concerns feel invalidated Management is clearly skimping on quality for food and room maintenance Could be a decent property

From the easy and quick check in, to their standard 12pm check out time, Moxy was amazing! The first floor has everything you’d need, games, a fireplace, a gorgeous bar with fantastic drinks, and cute little taco place attached!! There’s also a clean fitness area, and a little snack/drink shop The entire hotel was clean, and felt fresh! The room was cozy, it had a great view, and walk in shower The staff were all friendly as well! 10/10 would stay here next time I’m in town!

Taylor Wisler

For me the place is 5 stars, but it comes with a couple asterisks Do you like the idea of having the check in desk being at the middle of a bar? Do you like the idea of bare concrete ceilings and funky decor (think a picture of two guys in horse masks playing ukuleles)? Do you like the restaurant option being a place called “Zombie Taco?” Do you like the idea of the elevators having walls that are chalkboards to draw on? If so, you’re going to love this place If you want a more “traditional” hotel experience this place will feel too wild for you

All that being said, it’s not like this place is odd enough to be uncomfortable, it’s just that they’re trying to be creative and unique The location is good, the rooms were comfortable and quiet (concrete floors and ceilings are not the best aesthetically in my opinion, but they do provide good sound insulation) and the service was friendly Honestly a great place, assuming you’re ok with the funky kind of atmosphere they’re going for

Brandt Callahan

The Moxy will be our Go-to whenever we stay in Louisville The staff is incredible and so kind Justin, the bartender, is cool

The vibe here is simply awesome Had we not just had dinner, we would have eaten at the zombie taco kitchen they have Heard their food is really good We will give that a try on our next visit And another plus is that it is walking distance to all things downtown

S Burton

We spent 8 nights at the Aloft Louisville East this past week The room and building were very clean and well appointed We got a great price compared to other hotels in the area, and the hotel is very well located near a lot of shopping and expressways

I only had a few minor issues, but they were small enough to not detract from my giving them 5 stars The minor issues I had were first that the water pressure in the shower is basically non existent It felt like someone was holding a plastic bag with a few holes in it over your head At first I thought this might just be an issue with my room, but we had family staying in another room and their shower’s pressure was the same The second (again very minor) issue was that you have to go to the lobby to find a garbage can So if you have pizza boxes, etc that you don’t want in your room, you have to go to the lobby to dispose of them There are no garbage cans on the room floors Neither of these things were deal breakers for us, and we enjoyed our stay If we had the need, we would stay here again if the price continues to be reasonable

Paul Jeffers

My daughter and I stayed 2 nights at Aloft Louisville East The location is perfect Right off the bypass and Westport Rd

You have everything you need close by Plus, easy to get into the city too Service was great, but we don’t need much Their snacks in the lobby are overpriced, but it’s a hotel My only gripethe pocket door that separates the toilet and shower from the vanity was hard to pull close It was binding Room number 435 Also, the comforters are light I just prefer a heavier comforter Beds are very comfortable I love the decor It’s fun and different

Matthew Glover

Great hotel, super clean, friendly staff, accommodatingNeeds:Basic microwave in all roomsIce machine on main floorBad:If you are work nights or get in late, the North West rooms stay away from, it’s close to the freeway on ramp and you can practically hear every vehicle as it climaxes it’s motor and grabs another gear to get onto the freeway Sounds like window is open It’s loud

Highly recommend the opposite side of the building

Amanda Guzik

Service has been better this stay! Our room has been cleaned and tidied up too Rooms are recently renovated with more modern decor Food options are limited and the walkway snack shop closes way too early which forces everyone to use the bar which isn’t feasible for everyone especially teens

Meeting spaces were well kept and easy to use for the most part but the rooms were either ice cold or hot Which it was summer but… over much more pleased this time around Glad they fixed issues of last year

Amy Davis

Very friendly staff, easy check in, rooms was clean and comfortable Access to the Yum Center was great Valet service was fast and friendly

Close to “whiskey row”Cons:In room safe on the top shelf of bedroom closet, terrible access for a short person (I’m 5’2” and had trouble)Room service is non-existent Ordering take-out from restaurant in the hotel wasn’t an option either, they wouldn’t even answer the phoneAll in all a pleasant experience We’d stay here again

Debbie Payne

The newly remodeled room was VERY nice Comfortable, spacious bathroom, but NO MICROWAVE Sitting area was very nice, large sofa, desk and work area

Needs a more easily accessible charging station for electronic devices Check-in lines were 30 people deep More stations should have been opened Lines did move fairly quickly and personal were efficient and personable Each employee I asked for help was helpful and friendlyWe ate lunch in Walkers Exchange I ordered a Caesar Salad for $9 I got a plate of chopped Romaine lettuce with a little cheese sprinkled on top Very disappointing and way overpriced The fried green tomatoes were excellent chicken and dumplings was lunch special Dumplings were pretty good, but no chicken and the “sauce/gravy/gruel” seemed to be only cream of chicken soup Really? If I’m paying chef meal prices, I expect above average dishes We did not get them

Feedback From Real Customers

Our stay at the hotel was wonderful The room was clean and comfortable The staff was very friendly and helpful

I wished we had looked into the evening food option a little more because that would have saved us money and time on going out, but we did enjoy the affordable cocktails We had such a nice time that we stayed at a Drury Inn the next week in a different city and will definitely do so again in the future

Had a great week at the Drury Inn and Suites Louisville East for the National Speech and Debate tournament! Check-in was easy for my group, and we arrived in time for the 5:30 kickback (which was excellent) Rooms were well-done, and while there was a little wear in the bathrooms, by and large they were excellent with plenty of space and a high standard of cleanliness Staff were very polite and professional

Being from the West Coast, I hadn’t heard of the Drury brand before After my experience here, I plan to use them as one of my preferred options when I’m traveling with groups to points East! Thanks for a great stay!


Nice hotel Clean, comfortable room Loved the presence of a fridge and microwave

Indoor/outdoor pool is very nice Great experiences with the staff Plenty of breakfast options Location is decent Pain in the butt getting in and out of the side street it is located on, however, this lends itself to being a quieter area Plenty of restaurants within walking distance
