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.

This is an excellent choice if being on the UK campus is your number one priority. The location is right on campus. However, this drives the price up a little to a whole lot depending on University activities. The rooms are clean but somewhat dated, the beds are comfortable, the lobby is very nice and there is convenient parking. The... More

We stayed 3 nights, originally booked for 4 nights. Found the hotel to be average in quaility, room was large, staff was pleasant except for the owner who we found to be a jerk when we discussed an issue with him. Breakfast was below average. Bottom line the owner told us "we are not a chain and cannot give things... More

We had a power outage one night and someone smoked in a room the next night and the smoke alarm went off….The next morning the couple ask about a refund. Bottom line is they wanted a room for free.
