We arrived to check in at close to midnight and there was a note on the front desk informing guests the hotel was full and to call an 800 number for help. Stood there for a minute deciding what to do and the front desk clerk came from the dining area to check me in. Very pleasant and friendly. The... More

Several of us stayed while on the worlds longest yard sale. This is a great place to stay!!! Rooms was very clean and smelled good. The staff was very helpful. Several nice places to eat around them. Can walk to most. Breakfast was fresh and good. Will be staying here again.

Convenient place to stay if doing the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Close to Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve and Wild Turkey. The hotel is clean and staff super friendly. Mattresses need to be replaced. Restaurants within walking distance (don't go to Longhorn's - it was lousy). We'd stay here again, for a better price.

Spent the night here on the way home. Will NEVER be back. Rooms smelled horrible and were dirty (used qtips in the garbage can, hair on the 'clean' towels). Dead bugs in hallway. Pool size was fine, but unbearable for parents to sit in pool area to watch kids because it was like a sauna. Truly felt as if they... More

Came down for a long weekend to hit the Bourbon Trail once again. After trying to find a decent place in Louisville, Lexington or Bardstown which wouldn't break the bank I settled on the HIEX in Frankfort. I was a little worried based on some of the previous reviews but I know some people like to complain. The place is... More

We stayed there this month, our second time to stay there. Staff very friendly. We had a fine breakfast variety. The room was comfortable, quiet and temperature convenient to adjust, everything was very clean. Plenty of parking, fine restaurants in walking distance and shopping center near by. Frankfort is the capitol city of Kentucky.

I stay in hotels approximately 250+ nights per year. I prefer staying at Holiday Inns because I'm an IHG Platinum Elite Rewards member. I checked in to the Holiday Inn Frankfort KY on Tuesday, 5/12. I was supposed to checkout on Wednesday but extended my stay. At approximately 10:00PM Wednesday night I got up to use the bathroom. I caught... More

Visiting the horse park for rolex Ky, this was the closet we could get to the park. Beds comfy, shower hot, and fridge a plus! Very near any eatery or basic store. I didn't eat the breakfast, but the coffee was good. Rooms are pretty spacious and quiet. If I'm in Frankfort again, I will stay here.

The room was great, spacious and comfortable. I know breakfast is free but............selection was terrible. Both mornings they only had a couple of yougurts and milks out. The pancake machine was broken also, so it was definitely lacking. So they definately improve the breakfast.

Our first room's heater was broken so they moved us to a former smoking room. You could tell from the smell. The shower didn't work so well and the pool had some disrepair as well. Also, lighting in our room seemed constantly dark despite all the lamps being on. It was kind of depressing.
