Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chief 2 Great service
This is my fourth stay at this location. Great location right off of New Circle Road, but no road noise. Several places to eat within walking distance. Well lit parking lot. Close to downtown and UK but feels like a safe place. I have another stay scheduled at the end of the month. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Friendly helpful staff. This is my place to stay in Lexington.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KKRR Great hotel!
This hotel is perfect for your stay in Lexington. The staff are all warm and hospitable. Everyone's willing to help! The room was spotless; the microwave and mini-fridge were a wonderful bonus! The in-house breakfast was delicious: omelettes, bacon, sausage, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, oatmeal, yogurt, bagels, fruit, coffee, and juice!
The hotel's location in Lexington is top notch too. You're close enough to the hustle and bustle of downtown, but no need to deal with all that traffic!

Stayed in the suite with my father and brother in law. The room was large and the beds comfortable, with the pull out couch we all had our own bed. Two flat screens a fridge, microwave and a small table with a couple of chairs. Plenty of room for all of us to relax. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was good and plentiful. We will stay here again when were in Lexington.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trust me Luxury like home. Very clean and friendly staff.
This hotel has to be the cleanest most friendliest place I stayed on my 12 day vacation. I was really taken back by the helpful friendly staff,and the fresh clean rooms. I wish every hotel chain was like this. Boy they can sure use some pointers from this location. It's the small thing like cleanliness that make being away from home on the holidays like being at home. If you don't believe me go see it for yourself. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by G&G23 Well worth traveling to...
Our children and grandchildren came from various States to meet
for a family "Christmas Visit". This Holiday Inn Express property exceeded our expectations in every way possible. The Staff was fantastic..(our special thanks to Sandra and Will).....but everyone from the housekeeping staff to the breakfast staff and the front desk personnel were so warm and friendly, we felt like we were at someone's home !!
No other HIE has ever provided us with this level of personal attention and Customer Service, and we have stayed at many
HIE properties over the years.
If your travels take you to Lexington Area, choose this hotel--you
will not be disappointed ! We are already planning a return trip.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by West6thfans The good, the bad and the.....why is the trash still here?
My partner and I went to Lexington for a post-holiday trip. First, the good. The suite was large; we like having two separate rooms, a fridge and a microwave and the feeling that we're not tripping over each other with every move. So that was the good. The bad: the beds ARE hard. Too hard. I read that in another review and I thought maybe that traveler was just picky. Nope. Thursday night, it was fairly quiet; Friday night the room under us was occupied by screaming, running and seemingly ball bouncing children. Why didn't we complain? We took medication to sleep in the hard beds. But first thing Saturday morning, the screamers were back at it. I've stayed in places that informed you upon check in that there's a "quiet time" usually beginning around 10. Just sayin'.
Now the trash. We left for a few hours in the morning and came back about 2. The beds were made. The towel and bathmat that were left in the floor were taken but not replaced. The trash hadn't been touched, and I had thrown away my rather inedible sausage gravy from breakfast, so that needed to go. I took the trash bags out to the housekeeper. She asked if the room had been cleaned and I told her yes, because my partner was trying to nap and the trash problem had been rectified. The same woman who followed me to my room with trash bags came back 20 minutes later and knocked to ask if our room had been cleaned. That wasn't the worst part, I suppose. The entire housekeeping staff on the third floor from the time we got back about 2 until after 3 were practically screaming at each other and kept breaking out in loud, raucous laughter. They went so far as to talk over the vacuum cleaners that ran every three minutes. The hall wasn't that long.... Seems like if we wanted to hang out at the room in the afternoon, housekeepers shouldn't make it unbearable.
Bottom line: The room was a nice size. Based on the loud housekeepers and the noise levels from guests' children and uncomfortable beds, it turned out to be not such a great value. The people who work there, loud or not, were all very pleasant. I do think, however, that for our next trip, we'll check out a different hotel chain.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JT1254 Great service and nice rooms, but...
This holiday inn is extremely nice and the room was very clean. The only negative parts of the room were 1) the bed and 2) the tv. The bed was very firm and not as comfortable as expected. The pillows were nice. The tv turned itself on both mornings at precisely 6am. When the tv turned on it was on a grey screen and very loud.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RaceWeather New favorite place to stay in Lexington
I found this hotel thru Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. This was the first time I stayed here because my hotel kept slipping down the rankings and it was definitely noted on my last stay at that other hotel.
We checked in late and it was a smooth and easy process. The staff was friendly and this was a trend we noted through the whole trip. The room was clean, always cleaned well and on time. The breakfast were generally good and about as I expect. The one big plus was the cinnamon rolls that they've become known for.
This is my new hotel when visiting the Lexington, Kentucky area and would recommend it for travelers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by herdmac Too Expensive
Even though there were signs for me to rate my stay as "excellent" which by the way I found insulting to my intelligence, the main problem I had with my stay was that it was over a holiday weekend and there were literally like 25 people that stayed in the establishment. I felt the room was overpriced by at least $40 a night. This was a Holiday Inn Express but it charged Holiday Inn rates. In addition, the room was very small, hence the "Express" tag and that also led me to my conclusion that the room was way overpriced. I did think the rest that was offered was good to excellent but the high price soured my experience. If I was going to pay the amount I did for a room, it should have been much bigger and there should have been more "perks" for the money I spent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 The best Holiday Inn or Express in USA
This hotel and its staff and offerings are the best I have ever experienced in the US.
I travel a lot and stay at 12 or more Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels.
This is by far the cleanest, frendliest and most comfortable experience I have ever had.
I would choose this hotel over any other in the whole country.

Overall nice large room. Did have an issue with the fridge, it stopped working and our beverages were all warm then next day. The remote for the spare TV did not work. And no coffee cups were left, and the coffee packet left was sticky. Breakfast on the weekend closed at 9:30am, would like to have it stay open until at least 10:30, as it was a GREAT breakfast.

Bed was comfortable, everything was clean, plenty of light, everything worked. Nice to have a coffee pot, fridge and microwave, though we didn't need them. Elevator is a little slow, and no fan in bathroom, if I'm trying to find something to criticize, but overall this is an excellent property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GMJim77 Very pleased
When I first checked in, I was a little disappointed because there was no one at the desk for what seemed a long time. Later the next morning there was no hot water. Apparently over the night an issue happened with the electrical system that no one could have predicted.
I sent a email to Customer Care. I was VERY surprised to how quickly I received a response. It was almost immediate! THEN the Hotel manager called me directly to address my concerns and he made every effort to make certain I was a satisfied customer.
Situations can happen, sometimes an employee may not be as attentive as they should be. It is how a company responds to a mistake is what earns my business and lets me know that they appreciate my patronage. When I travel in Lexington (this will be 3 to 4 times a year) I will stay at this hotel and I would recommend to anyone who reads this that they do the same!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scharp great staff
When we reached our room we found it only had one chair. We called the front desk and Will immediately found us a room with two chairs. The room was spotless, the beds and pillows were just right. Every time we went by the front desk, Will remembered us and asked if we needed anything.
The first day at breakfast Peggy was the hostess. We told her our plans for the day. The following morning she asked us how our trip to Shaker Village had been. When a hotel has staff which interacts with its guests the way Will ansd Peggy do, we are sure we and others will make this Holiday Inn Express the place to stay..
