Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Smells like smoke The halls and our room definitely smelled like smoke. i even called the front desk to ask if we were in a nonsmoking room. They replied all of the hotel is nonsmoking. Also the room felt dirty because the carpet looked so bad, Our family was not pleased with the accomodations. July 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Close-To-Campus Hotel No problems experienced in our stay here. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Best part is that it is literally on the UK campus near the Medical School. Great value for your money. July 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Overall The hotel looks as if it has undergone some renovations, and both the exterior and interior are beautiful. Beds are nice and comfortable, and the staff was very courteous and helpful. The full, hot breakfast was great! I am a parent of a toddler who needed to have medications/foods refrigerated, so I had to leave the hotel after one night due to the lack of refrigerator and/or microwave in the guest room. If you don't require either of these, this will be a great choice of a hotel for your stay in Lexington, especially if you need to be close to UK. July 15, 2014
