We were visiting University of Kentucky, so this was a great location. We only stayed one night, but this is a very comfortable hotel. Large room, even with two adults and two kids. Two queen beds were quite comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was tasty. Extremely clean, great front desk staff. Check in/out was easy. Can't ask for more than that!

We stayed here because we came to Lexington for a family reunion. We did a blind deal online and it gave us this hotel. It was advertised as a 3 star hotel, it is not at all. This hotel is very average. The female staff at the front desk was friendly, and I thought the lobby was nice. The actual... More

Stayed here one night on a college tour. Nice clean room. Price was little more then other places we had stayed but not out of this world. Walked to campus (UK campus is a bit bigger then others we had seen) but not that far. Some people complain about hospital noise but I heard nothing. People at check in were... More

The rooms are comfortable and clean. Hotel staff are friendly and very accommodating . We arrived a little before check-in and waited in the lobby. They let us know promptly as soon as a room was ready. Decent breakfast, nothing special but the staff kept it clean and stocked . Good location, I would recommend a stay here.

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
