"Newly Renovated and Very Clean Rooms"

"I don't usually stay at Red Roof Inns, but was pleasantly surprised at the Louisville Airport Red Roof Inn being newly renovated and very clean inside. I [...] was impressed by the number of positive reviews. I really liked the wood floors which made the room feel very clean. The bed was comfortable, bedding white and clean. Actually, this was one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed at in the Louisville area. The price was lower than most too, which for me was an added plus. ... All in all, I would definitely stay at this hotel again."
