3rd overnight

A travel blog entry by aprils331

Yay! A flight without any drama! We boarded and headed on our way to Louisville with no problems. We got in about midnight. It had been snowing and the roads were bad on the way to the hotel. We were going to go to the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and Museum but with the roads the way they were. It would just depend on what the roads are like in the ...

The Adventure Has Begun

Today, we moved our motor home to Camp Carlson in order to warm it up, ie; thaw it out, charge the batteries, and get the heat pumps running. Most of the day was spent packing everything we need in order to live away from home for the next two months. It's amazing how much "stuff" you need! Pattie and I will sleep at the house tonight since we still have much to move to the coach tomorrow. Getting excited! We leave Saturday ...

I had fun today, saw a lot of history which is what I enjoy. I love American History. And it was a beautiful day. The wind was cold though but the sun was out. I'm just glad I didn't have rain because they had it the day before and the day after it was supposed to ...

2nd overnight

A travel blog entry by aprils331

This hasn't been my favorite hotel or overnight that we stay in but the location isn't bad. There's a lot of restaurants around and stores. Up until this trip, the highlight of my trip was walking to Walmart and Hancock Fabrics. But after I picked up a tourist book on Louisville, I realized there is a lot to do in and ...

Churchill Downs

... that did not matter because there we ten races on the card. We took up our position in a box close to the finishing line and in front of the enclosure where the winners salute. - prime viewing spot. Churchill Downs has two tracks, a dirt track and an inner turf track. We saw races on both surfaces. Churchill Downs has world class recognition but in our opinion is not a patch on Flemington or Royal Randwick. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Louisville

    Great Hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Clarion Hotel last weekend and had a great time. Our room was very nice and clean. The staff was helpful and freindly, and the food in the restaurant was really good.

    Several of the employees really went out of their way to insure we had a good stay, which says a lot for the hotel. I like to stay where I know the people care about the guests.

    We recommend it highly.

    The terrible reviews are dead on

    from

    We stayed at this hotel in connection with an Irish Dance competition in March 2004. Our room was prepaid for $89 per night, unfortunately, so we felt stuck at this hotel. Asked for non-smoking- when got to room, it REEKED of smoke, and had a small portable sign that said no-smoking- HA! A dirty roomservice tray sat outside our neighbors door for nearly 24 hours. The yellow and gold tile in the bathroom was mildewy -- we slept that night and asked to be moved the next day. We were moved to another room that at least had painted over the yellow tile and had less mold in bathroom - still the furnishings were broken and room not too clean. We travel frequently and think this was one of the worst places we have ever stayed. Amazing they can sell this property - perhaps the "tower" rooms are nicer, but the common areas even smell bad. I would think Clarion would have a better property.

    Great Hotel !

    from

    I stayed at this hotel last week for a convention and had a great experience. I usually do not take time to fill out these questionaires, but thought I would this time. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel, although maybe too large overall, has so many features compared to other hotels I have stayed in for the same price. I did not use the indoor pool area, but it looked really nice. The bar and restaurant looked like it was recently renovated and was georgeous. I would definitely recommend this hotel for the money .

    Neat Place

    from

    We stayed at the Clarion for the weekend because they have such a great indoor pool area. My family really loved it. The kids could not get enough of the pool ( it is huge ) . The staff was really freindly and helpful. They also liked the DQ that was right next door. It was like being on vacation. We will be back again I am sure.

    Nice Hotel

    from

    I stayed at the hotel recently on business and thought it was nice. My room was fairly new and nicely appointed. The restaurant and bar was very nice, kind of a bistro concept. They have a huge pool area and even a billiards room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone, especially families, with all the extra's there. Also, the area was nice, plenty of restaurants and things to do.The only thing missing was high speed internet access, but other than that, I will stay there again.

    Disgusting

    from

    Do yourself a favor and stay CLEAR AWAY FROM THIS NIGHTMARE! My cousin was getting married on 10/18/03 her friend recommended that my family members (32 of us total) should stay at this HELL HOLE! Upon my arrival, the heating system did not work in my room, it was 11:30 p.m. and there is someone on the floor fixing the unit. Wait let me just list the things2. My aunt had ants in her room3. My cousin had no hot water in her room4. My other cousin who happens to be 8 months pregnant had the toilet backup in her room at 1:30 a.m.5. My sister had boards up under her mattress to be used as a box spring6. In my dad's room, there was dried up vomit under the mattress7. The lighting fixture fell on my uncle's head in the bathroom.8. There was mold in another cousin's room in the bathroom.They offered to move us to different rooms and the ones that did move the accomodations was no better.I videotaped all of the rooms that we had and if I have to send it to the Mayor's office I will do just that. The hotel should be SHUTDOWN!DO NOT PLEASE DO NOT STAY at this hotel.

    Nice Pool Area

    from

    My daughters and I stayed here June 20-22, 2003 in connection with the Louisville Feis (Irish Dance Competition). Upon arrival we were greeted with a line for checkin that extended out the front door and then some.

    Needs work

    from

    Found the hotel to be in need of repair in many areas. Understand that they have had a recent upgrade throughout the hotel, but not sure that got their moneys worth. Rooms continue to be dark and musty smelling. Pool was not open when I visited. Cafe is overpriced and too small for the size of the hotel. Front desk service is very slow and many of the clerks have no idea what is going on....lots of new people. Must have a turnover problem. But convenient to good resteraunts in the area and interstate system.

    Very Nice Hotel

    from

    I don't know the person who stayed in October is talking about. This is a wonderful hotel. I was in Louisville on business and I had remarkable stay. The front desk, houskeeping and resturant staff were friendly, the rooms were clean and nice. If you are visiting Louisville, I highly recommend this hotel. Ask about the Excecutive or Jacuzzi Suites, they are very nice.

    Horrible Experience

    from

    We had a small group of about 132 people at Hurstbourne Hotel on Oct 12, 2002 for a halloween dance. The experience there was a nightmare.

    The staff was extremely rude, several rooms had roaches, some rooms had shot bulbs or no bulbs in the bathrooms, a dead bat hung above one of the rooms outside the window, our room had a coffee-maker but no coffee pot for the coffee to drip in, one room had bugs in the heater and you could smell them burning when the heat was turned on.

    On a scale from 1-10, Hurstbourne wouldn't even be on it...a rating of zero would be more than sufficient for the motel.
