Well, for your needs I wouldn't consider the Jeffersonville or the Shepherdsville locations - both are outside of the city of Louisville and probably the farthest, unless the Jeffersonville location is closer to the river than I remember. I think both are "traveler's" motels - right off the interstate. Also, if the Microtel is the one I'm thinking of, it is pretty far out also (almost at the eastern county line at I-64 and Blankenbaker).

The Red Roof Inn - Fairgrounds isn't in the most fun or interesting location - it is basically an airport hotel. The fairgrounds and amusement park are right there, as well as some light industry and some older, smaller homes. However, it is right off of I-65, so you will have good access to downtown and the area around campus. Also, maybe an easier time finding a taxi due to the airport proximity.

Both ESA's are in pretty standard suburban areas. Near shopping, malls, chain restaurants, etc, but not as close to the more interesting nightspots that you are considering.

The rest I'm not familiar with. As a whole, Louisville's taxi's are less common and more expensive than in other, larger cities, but you can have one pick you up at almost any location. Also, some hotels have shuttle services that might be able to drop you off at a specific place.

How much will you be spoending at one of those? if it is over 60 dollars a night, you might as well try and stay at a nice hotel downtown like the marriott or hyatt. If you bid on priceline, you can get the Hyatt for under 80, and believe me it will be worth the extra 20 bucks. It is also centrally located and within walking distcance to some nice bars.
