My husband has a job opportunity in Louisville. We live presently in north MS and have a mentally disabled child. I homeschool my teenagers. He needs an inexpensive place to stay Monday through Friday until we know this is going to be the right job and we can make the major move. What are expenses like and availability of safe, clean, reasonable accommodations?

You are in luck. This website is your best bet:

www.airbnb.com

I have reviewed most of the rentals on there and they seem to be mostly safe and well located.

This is your best located and cheapest option by far:

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/622295

Only 40 bucks a night. However, you will have a "roommate."

Should you like your own space, I like these places:

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/409205

This one is like a downtown hotel but better with a kitchen and 2 bedrooms and less than half the price:

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/723810

Should you prefer a hotel and a suburban location, Value Place is not bad but I have found these places tend to attract a lot of "transients" in any city, Louisville included.


Value Placemore info‎
10400 Brookridge Village Boulevard
Louisville, KY 40291
(502) 239-0044

But I would more strongly consider the options above. Welcome to Louisville. It is really on the rise. The advantage of the airbnb rentals is they are cheaper, better located, and you will have contact with a local who can give you some "insider info." Should you prefer a nice hotel, the 21C, Marriott, Seelbach, Brown, and Hyatt are IMO the best.

Also, I have stayed at the Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn and Hampton Inn downtown and enjoyed all three.

Lville, and especially KY, get a bad rap. I am here to defend that and change any stereotypes because if you find the right areas, Louisville is the best kept secret in America. But, it is easy to drive a Dixie or Preston Hwy, run into a couple "local yokels," and walk away thinking "this town sucks." But it is really an intricate city with a lot of nooks and crannies and if you really utilize the city, I firmly believe it to be the best all around mid sized city in America.

Lightbulb Too cold for some of the recommendations...

IF money wasn't an object, I still wouldn't stay at the Seelbach this time of year. Having stay there before during the winter months, woke up with ice (not frost) on the old windows and it was freezing in the room. The starbucks employees (on the corner, attached to the lobby) all had ski caps and winter jackets. I know the Rolling Stones stayed there but time and place. Keep the historic windows but wait for warmer temperatures.

My suggestion would simply stay outside of Jefferson county in a hotel chain. Depending on where he needs to go in Louisville, Shelby county (to the east), northern Bullitt county (to the south), or even across the river in New Albany, Indiana will result in daily room charges in the $50's and $60's and will include free breakfast and maybe even free complimentary dinners (thinking thrifty).
