First, let me say, this is NOT really walking distance to the Univ of Kentucky -- maybe for a college kid -- maybe -- but not for anyone else. The lobby is nice, but there is no pool, which at this price is disappointing. The rooms seem somewhat old and smelled kind of funny, especially when we first got there.... More

Very tired looking rooms with poor beds. Worst place I've stayed in Lexington and many at a similar price far better. Lexington offers many other choice with great locations. This place is great for being near the University of Kentucky if that is the goal. The street noise is impossible being near the major hospital.

We have stayed at the University Inn on multiple occasions over the past 4 years. Each visit has lasted several nights. Every experience has been outstanding, from the friendliness and helpfulness of the front desk staff, to the time spent checking in and out, to the cleanliness of the hotel, to the quality of the complementary breakfast, and to the...

The staff was so welcoming and helpful and my room was clean, comfy and quiet. I loved the location and the price! Free internet, parking and breakfast are all included in the room rate. Will stay here again when I return to Lexington!

We stayed several nights there while my grandfather was in UK hospital. Although we were just wanting a place to shower and sleep this place was far more. The beds are incredible and not because I had slept on a cot at the hospital. These beds were some of the best beds I have ever slept on. The linens are... More

I have stayed here multiple times and have had no problems. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff are friendly. The location is perfect for UK events or if one needs place to stay near the hospital. I would definitely recommend that you stay here when you visit Lexington.

Paid $130 for a $75 value. Rooms were Days Inn quality and located across from some off campus party houses. We heard trains and sirens often. I learned the next morning that the hospital was in sight. There are much better places to stay near the UK campus.

We had a room there for nine weeks while my Dad was in the ICU at UK. They were always very helpful. They kept our room clean even though we were not there but on the weekends. They knew us by first name when we would check in. When My dad did pass away they sent my family a sympathy... More
