We stay here for BF every year. Since Clarion has owned the motel it has become the #1 place to stay in our book over many hotels all over the country. New comfortable beds, great breakfast. The staff are like family. So very helpful to help you unpack your vehicles and get what you need. New carpets. I can't say... More

After a full day of travel, a quiet clean hotel with a sports bar just down the hall is so appreciated. We enjoyed some Lexington favorites - Hot Brown ( a yummy sandwich with mornay sauce), Kentucky Derby Pie and bread pudding. The fridge was noisy so unplugged that, but other than that no complaints about the room. Breakfast was... More

I stayed at this property for just over a week while participating in an event at the Kentucky Horse Park. It was a clean, comfortable room, but the aid my group received in organizing and planning logistics/meals/activities for our twelve young adults and their parent volunteers was wonderful and over-the-top helpful. And it wasn't just upper level management - it... More

This hotel was cute, cozy, and very welcoming. Everything from the warms smiles as we check in to the kindness of Larry's hospitality at Cortlands made me feel right at home! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lexington!

Called late and found an available room after midnight. We were tired and needed a place to stay. The staff were great checking in, organizing the breakfast, and checking out. Really appreciated the hospitality of the staff! Room was good for what we needed. No complaints.

We come down to Lexington every year for Breyerfest and am always amazed how better the hotel keeps getting. The breakfast bar could be a little better. (never any bacon) And coffee is from a machine not too fresh. "Bill" was a very help staff member. He got ice for our water cooler and helped load it into our truck.... More

This is a nice place but everything is so spread out. There is one laundry facility for a very large number of rooms. Only one washer and one dry worked. There was a line waiting to do laundry. This facility needs more than one laundry room for the size of it. The check in was also very chaotic. People were... More

This is a nice hotel for the price. Great location. About 15 minutes from downtown, 8 minutes from the Horse Park, and just off exit 115 on I-75. We had a king foam bed that was pretty comfortable, fresh coffee in the lobby 24/7, wifi worked great, breakfast in one of the two restaurants which was adequate ( the bagels... More

Clean and neat inside, but outside needs painting. Great location off interstate and easy access to downtown. Restaurant is closed on Sun. nights, but Sports Bar & Grill open for meals. Hot breakfast buffet. Friendly staff. Indoor pool with game room, etc. which good for families traveling to occupy the children.
