Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 111 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average hotel, but top notch staff! Was in Lexington for business and stayed 4 nights at this HIE. We usually stay at HIE and this hotel was located downtown to better see the sites after my meetings. After being spoiled in a newer HIE in Ohio, this one at first glance was not up to par, no fridge or microwave, so-so beds and very thin walls. We were woken up the second night by people upstairs at 2am, called the front the desk and they immediately called the room (heard phone ring) and the noise eventually subsided. This HIE has you sign a quiet policy agreement which i liked, but had to be a result of the many young college kids (mostly sports teams) who stay here to play the Univ of Kentucky. But don't let any of this dissuade you from staying here, great staff (we will miss Becca) and her bubbly personality. The breakfast area is large (Theresa is great) and the food is free and plentiful, free USA Today and local papers and the hotel is in a good location to many restaurants and downtown. I gave it 3-1/2 stars as the hotel is a little run down and the rooms/beds in comparison with the other 20+ HIE we have stayed need some upgraded. All in all a good stay, but their staff and sightseeing recommendations made it great. August 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Continued use I usually stay at this Holiday Inn Express when in Lexington on business. I don't think that I have ever had a negative experience here. The staff has always been good and the facilities in good condition. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by looking forward to our return in September! We enjoy this hotel very much. We stay here whenever we come to Lexington. My husband and I have never found a hotel desk equipped with tape/glue. At least that they are willing to share! Last Thursday I stayed at the Holiday Inn with my two grandsons. My little grandson needed an airplane repair. Becca so cheerfully produced a tape dispenser. Amazing! Becca is excellent for the front desk--very warm and welcoming. She shows an interest in each guest she greets. Theresa was a whirlwind at breakfast, a hard worker. She is friendly and pays special attention to children. Guests feel they are in good hands with Theresa, she will take care of them. Charles has such a kind and stabilizing personality. He really enjoys children. He is a hotel fixture and must work many hours. Our stay wouldn't be complete without a visit with Charles! We would recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone who needs a place to stay when in Lexington. I don't think you will be disappointed. August 14, 2014
