I was pleasantly surprised! My daughter and son-in-law stay there every time he is at UK for business. My daughter said the rooms were not fancy but clean. Well, the room was perfect to me. Upon entering, my room was noticeably clean and fresh. I was there alone to prep for surgery the next day. The hospital put me up... More

Room was very clean. Beds were comfortable and staff very friendly!!! Breakfast bar the next morning had a great variety of items!! Free Wifi. Very accomodating to people that are needing to be at hospital very early in the morning.

Rooms are clean and decent size, bedding OK. Baths are really small and minimal toiletries are provided. Provided breakfast is the most basic continental out there. No food service on site - and nothing close by. Only plus is it's location to U of K medical center - but that's also a disadvantage when the sirens come rolling in during... More

Our room was standard sized with the normal amenities of TV, hair dryer, iron, coffee maker, fridge, etc. There's a vanity mirror outside the bathroom, which made it easier to get ready in the morning. The carpet near the bathroom smelled moldy though. Our room couldn't seem to warm up despite setting the thermostat up higher. But the bed was... More

Landing after a horrible trip through snow and delays, I was additionally LOST in the city in a rental car with no heat. The trip from a horror movie. KEVIN was at the front desk. He calmed me on my call and directed me to the hotel, gave me a room (even though I was a day early...), and comforted... More

We stayed here for one night on a long trip. I booked this through a third-party site, so I would have preferred something closer to the interstate. That said, if you have business downtown or at UK, this would be an ideal location! The property itself was just average. It's showing its age a bit, but it is far from... More

This is a good hotel with nice and friendly staff at a reasonable price. Excellent location, in UK campus and close to keeneland. Breakfast options can be improved. Overall, it was a good experience and I would certainly consider staying here again.

The location to campus is great. Can't say lot about the facility, but it is clean. Due to the location it's a bit noisy. The staff are pleasant and efficient. If I was booking my own accommodations to Lexington this would not be on my list. The physical separation of the two buildings is a hindrance.
