My husband and I stayed at this Hotel for 2 nights. We were so pleased with our stay that I will be planning on bringing my grandchildren back for a few days. This hotel is older than most but cleaner and nicer than newer ones. Our room was so nice and the beds were great! The free breakfast was wonderful.... More

I stayed here during Lexicon (and some horse event and a softball tournament) so there were lots of people but everything went smoothly and all the staff were super nice even with all the chaos. The breakfast was good too.

We stopped in at the restaurant on our way home from Keeneland. Our friends said this was the place to stop. We just figured, food and drink ad we'd be on our way.

I travel with my family and I have three kids under 12. The youngest had enough being in a car for 8 hours, so we stopped here and stayed and ate at the bar/restaurant in the Clarion. Larry was our server and he was courteous, friendly, and helpful with my rambunctious little one. Thanks Larry, we appreciate it!

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.
