If you have kids, this is the place to stay. They have an indoor pool, basketball court, shuffelboard and a game room. Check in was quick even though they were handling a flight from the airport that was cancelled. Our room was older, but the bed was SO comfy. Breakfast had alot to pick from. I will stay at this...

I would like to personally thanks Stephon of the one-man maintenance nite crew at Clarion Hotel, in Lexington, KY. He was very responsive and technically proficient while solving a problem with our bathroom shower. However, beyond that, I would like to thank him for his wiliness to provide great customer service. Clarion Hotel is lucky to have an individual of... More

Got a room for about $70 off a priceline flash sale...it wasn't great. The lady at the front desk was nice and the dinner/ drinks we had in the bar were good ...but I can't think of much else to say positive. It's old and outdated and doesn't feel clean. Pic attached is the bathtub BEFORE we ever used it... More

I believe that you posted your comments on the wrong hotel. From your description, I can tell that you stayed at the Clarion Hotel on Newtown Pike at exit 115, not with us. I will contact the Trip Advisor and ask them to move your posting to the correct hotel. Thank you for your loyalty to the Clarion brand. If... More

Rooms and fun dome are a little dated. The hotel is next to a construction site or junkyard. Sounds of machinery woke us up every morning. Fire alarm went off and staff didn't clearly direct us as to what was going on. Overall okay experience. And breakfast was good.

Room was nice and clean. Was a good location. If you didn't want to eat at the hotel, there is a Denny's next door, but the food was good. The staff was good and met my needs. I would recommend this to everyone.

Just want to tell the world that 'PAULA' the bartender at the Lexington Clarion Hotel is the best I've seen. She is so attentive, asks your name and remembers it all week. A bouncy, peppy, will do whatever she can to make your stay/sitting at the Sports Bar. Unlike the first bartender there on a Sunday night who had no... More
