From Stephen in maintenance, Jack in administration, Paula manager of Page's Sports Bar, Destiny a waitress in the sports bar to the front desk and maid service all were pleasant, courteous and eager to please. Rooms and BR were small but freshly refurbished. Breakfast bar was great. The Hotel was packed with guests. I would opt to stay there again.

Short weekend trip to explore Lexington and enjoyed our stay. Currently remodeling and it's needed but for the price we were happy with our stay. We will certainly stay again if in Lexington. Very enjoyable breakfast included. Did not use FunDome but it was very busy when we looked in and looked like fun.

I had a great experience, people friendly, polite, and very helpful. I had great meals, and I have an excellent room. I highly recommend this hotel and its mama gem entry and all supporting staff. Thanks to Larry for his service.

The staff dont know there own policies for choice members and wont stand behind their mistakes. I gave an average because it is old and run down. The only good draw is the fun zone. Lexington is long overdue a quality hotel with a fun zone/water park.

Note that I traditionally reserve 5-star ratings to non-budget hotels where you might expect such quality. That said, I could have ranked this Clarion a solid 4, but it was so close to a 5 that I set that level. Just down a few miles down side roads from the Kentucky Horse Park, it is also a convenient practical straight... More

My husband and I arrived at the hotel at about 5:30 p.m. 2 days ago, after 9 hours of driving. The lady at the check-in desk was very pleasant, and our room was clean and very comfortable. We headed for the restaurant for dinner, and found the food very good, and the service we received from Larry was superb! He... More

I remember this hotel from when I was a kid; the pool was always so spacious, great hot tub, huge arcade and a mock deck as if you were really at a nice resort. The amenities definitely out weighed their uncontrollable cons. THE con was the over abundance of children, oh my goodness there were so many. The pool area... More

The area certainly attracts kids and families and we do our best to ensure it does not get overly crowded by allowing only registered guest to use this area. Once again we appreciate your business and look forward... More

Mu husband and I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights recently with our dog. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jack, who was very friendly. He helped us with our luggage. They gave Eli, our dog a biscuit- he was very happy about that. The hotel is undergoing construction, so the elevators were out of service. Luckily, we were... More
