My wife & I stayed here for two evenings on our way home from Florida. We wanted to explore Lexington a little and this was a good location to do that. Close to the University and downtown. We will stay here again.

Everything was great. After checking out from my first night's stay, I found out I needed to stay another night. Staff put me back in my same (nice) room and made everything easy. Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hcab71 favorite digs in Lexington
My favorite place to stay in Lexington. My most recent stay was disturbed by someone's barking dog----didn't realize they allowed pets but saw it the next day be walking through the lobby---this is no fault if the hotels just inconsiderate guests not controlling their Maltese. Breakfast is usually eggs sausage/bacon gravy waffles juices cereal and fresh fruit. Pool looks good but haven't used it. Book early!!!! Is Close to campus and fills up fast!!!! Price is fine. II just hate thee prices if all hotels as if late. I wish there was a better rewards program say if you're visiting somewhere frequently and book three stays in a yearat once you'd get a discount.

I truly enjoyed staying at the Lexington-Downtown/University Holiday Inn Express. The service by the staff was great, the registration was done quick and efficiently. The room was clean and comfortable, bathroom was clean and the amenities at the room where great.
Thanks for the service

We stayed close to the pool area. We owned the pool and spa during our stay since we are the only one using it the whole night. It was Awesome.

Carpet needs to be replaced and some furniture is getting a little threadbare. Price seemed a little high for mid-week with school out of session. Overall still a good place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JeffD Recommend this hotel. Would definitely stay there again!
My son and I stayed at this hotel while in Lexington for a UK football game. We were very pleased with the hotel and our experience there. The hotel is very convenient to the medical centers on the north end of the UK campus. The stadium is across campus from the hotel, so it's about a 1 mile walk, but still was much easier than fighting the traffic to and from of the game. You are on campus almost as soon as you leave the hotel, so the walk is safe.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great, and the room was clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and will stay there again if I visit Lexington.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mugsy47 I love this place.
The staff calls me by name when I walk in the door. I am Greeted with the biggest smiles and how are you doing today and they welcome me like I was family! The Lobby is always so clean and fresh! The Fireplace is so warm and Beautiful. I have to come to Lexington a lot due to having My Doctors here and I would never think of staying anywhere else and it is so close to My Dr. what could be better than that! I would recommend this place to everyone!

This is a very clean HIE. Everything in the room was great. The location is only a couple mins drive to downtown Lex. Around the hotel are a few places to eat within walking distance but a ton of places if you have a car.

My stay at the inn was wonderful. The whirlpool was amazing after a long night of traveling and the staff was friendly and flexible about check-in/check-out time. The only downside is weren't given much information about places to do and things to see in Lexington. But overall great experience!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Reina123 PILLOWS NO GOOD
Enjoyed stay over the weekend, however it seemed a little pricey considering the pillows provided. They were small and lumpy.
They did not go along with the reminder of the room. Bathroom
was clean and plenty of hot water in shower.
There seemed to be frequent sirens and trains running when I was there. Did not provide for a good nights rest, not counting the
I would stay there again, however hope someone does something about the pillows.

Nice job! After a long drive from Michigan for UKY Family Weekend, it was nice to have a clean and quiet retreat for 48 hours. Perfect space for the two of us and great proximity for visiting our son. Superb shower with soft water, too. We'll be back in 2014!

This is a very nice hotel. I stay in hotels about 50+ night a year. Clean and comfortable. The staff were very nice. Front Desk staff were very polite and friendly. Thought it was just a little on the pricey end. But still enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel

I am a priority platinum member. I was not welcomed, given an upgrade or treated well at all. I stay in alot of Holiday Inns and do not expect to be treated like royalty, but do expect a little recognition for all I spend there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trip14 Great Service and clean rooms
I did not have a reservation, due to the fact that I was unsure if I would make it to Lexington that evening. I arrived at 3:30 am and the gentleman working the desk did a wonderful job finding me a room and making sure I got the best deal for my money. Unfortunately, all that was available was a smoking room, but the gentleman at the desk made sure to let me know that the next day they would switch my room. The next morning when I came down the people at the desk took care of swapping my room and the manager even came up to make sure everything was good in my new room. Anytime during my stay the front desk was very helpful with any questions that I had. You have a wonderful staff at the downtown Lexington location. Thank you for making my first visit to Lexington a great experience. :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UKMom97 Very recommended
The ladies at check in were phenomenal. Helped me to get a first floor room so I wouldn't have to fight doors/elevators bringing college student's chaos into our room. Upon check out mentioned a necessary maintenance issue with shower curtain bar to clerk. He didn't seem concerned; didn't write down issue---just said OK.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MWTC In a pinch
DO not splurge for the king "suite" with jacuzzi tub! NO microwave or refrigerator! The jest on the tub were dirty and would not use it. The hot tub was only warm and jets did not work. The pool was cloudy. Also I requested when reservations made to have ac turned on so when we arrived it was a cool room as we were ridding and new we would be extremely hot. This was not done. No cold water bottles or snacks of any sort when check in. Good point was the breakfast lady was a hoot and made the morning super fun!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jd3192 Poor customer service
Reserved a 3 night stay and checked in and left the next morning for work. Came back after working 14 hours and just wanted to eat my pizza I had bought and get to bed. Went to my room the key didn't work, set everything down and found the second key, it didn't work either. Picked everything up walked down to the lobby desk as 2 people were waiting to check in. Stood there for about 10 minutes getting agitated as the clerk tried to do his best working alone. He finally got to me handed him my room cards told him they did not work he took my name looked it up and apologized and gave me two new keys. Went back up to my room and the keys worked fine but there someone else in my room. Went back down talked to the desk got put up in a different room. clerk called said he talked to the manager and since I didn't leave anything in my room (I only travel with my scrubs in a small bag and take it to work) she took it upon herself to check me out. said she called my cell phone which I gave them at check in but no call or voicemail ever came through. they didn't upgrade my room only an offer of rewards points that never was told how many and they didn't come through anyways. Stayed 2 more nights and did not receive a phone call or a personal apology from the hotel manager. Very disappointed at how things were handled more so then the act but that was wrong as well. Looks like my 3 nights a week and my coworkers will be spent at a competitors hotel that knows the value of a guest and how to act when mistakes happen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chain86 Excellent hotel w/ minor problems
The room was outstanding as was the staff. The minor issues dealt with the pool area, the Spa was non functional as was the pool shower. There was also a shortage of pool towels which was quickly corrected upon informing the staff. These are minor issues at best.
There was an issue with the iron in the room which was prompty dealt with.
The staff was superb making excellent dining suggestions and interacting well with the children.
All in all an excellent Hotel of the kind that set the standards for the IHG chain.

We always enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown Lexington. It's comfortable, close to everything around UK, and the people who work there are all very nice. It's clean and roomy, and we also enjoyed having the "mini kitchen" as part of the room.

I was after a very long 11 hours drive and the only thing I had in mind is eat, takes a shower and go to sleep. There is a variety of different restaurant near by. Walked 5 minutes had dinner and came back to the hotel. Took a shower and right into bed. The morning hot breakfast was perfect. Very satisfied. Will come again if I am in the area. All the stuff very friendly and cooperative.
Special thanks to Chad the hotel's GM, to Joe, the evening shift clerk, Kyle, the morning shift clerk and to the kitchen employ.
All the stuff very friendly and cooperative.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Timot Great option to stay in this part of Lexington
Bottom line, I would stay here again. Beds comfortable, room very clean, and breakfast was very good. Only opportunity for improvement: My room had two, large upholstered "sitting chairs", neither of which would fit under the room's desk, making the desk unusable for computer work or writing. Recommend replacing one of these sitting chairs with a hydraulic lift "office-like" chair appropriate for the use of the adjacent desk.
