This was a good hotel and in a good location. The staff was very polite and the room was clean. I recommend this hotel if u are in the area. It has a restaurant and bar and u don't have t o leave the hotel.

The front desk staff was friendly. That's the most positive thing I can say. The rooms do not have a microwave, and some do not have a refrigerator. The halls of the hotel had clutter. I walked by a glass cup for 4 days. No staff bothered to pick it up. The hotel is in a great location but it... More

We checked into a "Non Smoking room" 10/31/14. The smell of smoke inside the room was very strong. Fresh smoke, like the maid just walked out with a cigarette. Desk clerk gave us new room, and at 11:00PM another guest tried to open the door with a key card. The desk clerk called a few minutes later, and very rudely... More

This hotel is disgusting. We stayed there in October and found the hotel staff and services to be subpar, if that. We were served from the bar in plastic cheap dollar store cups. Everything we drank from wine to top shelf cognac's was given to us in these cheap, flimsy, plastic cups. The bar had no table or chairs to... More

I stayed here for a wedding. The hotel is very comfortable. The front desk staff was super friendly and very accommodating. It could use some updates but overall the room was clean and comfortable. I had a corner room on the eighth floor and it was very spacious. It was walking distance to restaurants which was nice. Overall a nice... More

My husband was speaking in Frankfort, and we chose this hotel for convenience as to the location. The price was reasonable and the room acceptable. The hotel has seen better days, and you definitely get that impression of the area, too, with vacant shops in adjacent buildings.

I pretty much agree with the other Trip Advisors, reviews. However, I look for 3 things when I travel. 1)safety, 2) cleanliness,3)quiet,(so I can get rest). This lovely, old hotel gave me all three. Front desk ladies were nice, and we had room 717, that over looked a large lot where there were beautiful fountains, and a view of the... More

This hotel has four things going for it. Nice staff, location, free wifi, and free covered parking in downtown. The hotel room had been given some fresh paint and carpet. The in-room air conditioner couldn't keep up with the humidity. The bedding was a bit tired. Not a place to celebrate a special occasion or to have a romantic weekend.... More

The Hotel itself is older and you can tell. The decor is nice, and reminds you of other older hotels in larger cities. It has a lobby with a small bar, kind of quaint actually. It all has a decent look. The access from the parking garage to the lobby and then to your room is not the most convenient.... More

My husband and I stayed here after a wedding at nearby Buffalo Trace. It was only a mile away and fine for what we needed. We usually stay at Hampton Inns and I would say that this place is a step down from that. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. I did kill a pretty big spider... More
