Rooms older yet clean. Pillows not comfortable. Front desk staff very nice and efficient. Breakfast Lame for the price of the room. Embassy suites are head over heels above this place. Noisy!!! Can hear everything in nearby rooms so wear earplugs and that MIGHT help.

University Inn was my first taste of not only Kentucky, but the USA and I loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the room spotlessly clean and very comfortable with a decent Continental breakfast. Spent my first 5 nights here before travelling around Kentucky and have re-booked twice.

I booked my room on priceline, which can sometimes be scary since you do not know where you are staying until after you have paid, but I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised! I had read some of the other rooms before making the trip and I was a little worried. Our room was exactly as pictured with the... More

This is not even motel 6 material and what makes it worse is the pictures depict this updated room with comfy beds BUT what we were given was a below average bed with thin pillows, worn blankets and a paper thin bed spread...yes bed spread...not comforter. Don't be fooled by the pictures. Also wifi internet access did not work.

Continental breakfast terrible: white sliced bread`, boiled eggs, cereal of some sort, and dry as stone pastry, sour oj, coffee. Think twice before booking here. Near... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way home from Tennessee. We hadn't visited Lexington before and this hotel seemed close to sites we wanted to visit. The hotel was very easy to find and has plenty of free parking. Check-in and check-out was very efficient. The room was larger than I expected for the price... More

I having been staying at U Inn many times, mostly overnight, when working at Kentucky Children's Hospital and Chandler Hospital. This inn is the closest, within easy walking distance, friendly and considerate and reasonable priced. (you need to drive to get to the "attractions of Lexington, however). Comfortable and quiet rooms, nice breakfast available even earlier that the stated 6am.

I was skeptical when my colleague booked the University Inn for our conference stay in Lexington. It was a great price, but I was worried that it wouldn't be a great value. However, I was completely proven wrong. The Inn looks like it has recently been renovated, everything looks fresh and clean. Our room, on the second floor, was a... More

Stayed at the University Inn because it was the closest to UK, however I would never recommend the hotel. Checked in late in the evening and went in the room and the TV was on which was strange enough and then to find food wrappers in the trash can. The air conditioning settings did not work so the temperature in... More
