Paint is peeling on bathroom walls. There is an obvious smoke smell in the room. The hall floors are dirty. The bathtub has no strainer in drain. This is an old motel. The room seems clean, but it is not worth the money.

We stayed here for one night on our way back to GA. We were hauling a big horse trailer so the size of the parking lot mattered. It was perfect for our needs. The adjoining rooms we reserved were fine. Clean linens, good pillows and nice beds. We had dinner in the pub attached to the hotel. It was such... More

I want to preface this review by stating that I was attending as a board member of a statewide organization. I was involved with the setup for the annual convention and arrived at the hotel early in the morning the day prior to the event to set up for it.

We had a great time the 4 days we stayed. Friendly helpful staff made sure we were comfortable. We plan to return anytime we are in Lexington. We had a chance to visit with a couple horse farms which we very much enjoyed. We really enjoyed visiting with old friends and making several new friends.

The 2014 Southern Cruisers National Rally was held at the Clarion in Lexington, KY and it was fantastic! Every member of the Clarion staff responded perfectly! Everything we needed was provided right up to the last detail. I would definately recommend the Clarion to any group looking for a place in Lexington to hold their event!

This is an older hotel but it's very clean inside and out. We were made welcome from the time we walked in until we left. The employees were exceptional. I never had a problem asking for directions. There was always someone close to ask I never had to hunt someone down. And they always seemed pleased to help.

All the staff and especially Jack went out of their way to make my family including our dog extremely welcome. The hot breakfast was very good. The establishment was exceptionally friendly to dogs with an out side restaurant patio. The dog exercise area was complete with bags and conveniently placed trash can.
