I'm going to be down in louisville this coming weekend for a couple nights and i wanted to know if there are any cheap hotels in the downtown area. I don't need anything fancy at all, but i do want to be in the downtown area near all the action. I need to be in an area that is gonna give me a good feel for the city, as this is my first time there, and i may be moving for good in the near future. Thanks in advance.

Theres a Hampton Inn on East Jefferson St. and a Courtyard on South 2nd Street. Both are within walking distance of 4th Street Live and the waterfront.

Any of the Marriot Brand hotels are cheap downtown as well as Hampton Inn. Honestly though, some of the nicer hotels can be had on priceline for around 100 a night if you name your own price, so they may be worth it. This includes the Marriot downtown, 21C (a must see even if you don't stay there) , Hyatt, Seelbach Hilton, and Brown.

I wouldn't base my sole impression of the city on downtown. Parts are walkable and vibrant...parts are not. Search my posts for more info. Make sure you thouroughly explore frankfort Avenue and bardstown road and most their cross streets. also explore the intersection of lexington road and breckenridge and shelbyville in st matthews and all around there.

what nights are you here? let me know if you want nightlife or dining recs.
