Guest Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 314 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly Recommend Stayed here for 5 nights and all 5 nights were great. All staff I encountered did a great job of helping and accommodating me, but Ciara (I hope I spelled that correctly), was just AWESOME! She had so many restaurant recommendations, printed out maps for us, and was so helpful. Breakfast was pretty good; choices could've had a better variety throughout the week, but overall it was good and the location was great. Once again, highly recommend this hotel. August 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect plact to stay when visiting UK Everytime we visit Lexington and our child that attends UK we stay at this hotel. Have stayed here numerous times, and will continue to for the years to come. Staff is awesome, hotel and rooms are always clean, and it's walking distance to campus and medical center. I highy encourage people to stay here when visiting The University of Kentucky! August 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff Holiday Inn Express and Suites Lexington-Downtown/University has very friendly staff. The hotel was clean and convenient to the University of Kentucky. The continental breakfast was good and there were plenty of choices with several tables so you could sit and eat. Great visit. August 20, 2015
