Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 96 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good Service But Way Too Expensive Have stayed at this location for a number of years. Consistently nice hotel and staff. However this location has gone from expensive to ridiculously expensive so I'm moving on. July 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No problems I stayed here prior to an early flight out at LEX. This was not the closest IHG hotel, but it was a little lower priced than the closest one, and it only took about 10 minutes to get to the airport. The double queen rooms don't have an office chair with the desk (as displayed in the photos). The TV remote didn't turn the TV on, but it changed the channels fine after I turned the TV on using the button on the set. July 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Express Lexington, KY First trip to this property and it was over all very good. Greeted by two very customer service oriented agents. They were both very nice, kind and wanted to make sure I got what I needed while at the hotel. The room was large and clean, the in room air conditioning system worked great and was very responsive. The TV set up was excellent as well. Only negative is that the WIFI was out near room 322 where I stayed. I went to the lobby and connected easily, but it was disappointing that I could not get the wifi to work in my room. I spoke with the agents and they said they would pass the message on. It was a Sunday at 4 PM so I guess the management wasn't available to reset the modem--but I would guess that the desk agents would be knowledgeable about how to do a reset. Other than that, it was a very good stay. I will stay there again in the future. July 3, 2014
