Extremely friendly staff from front desk to restaurant. The room was clean, bed comfortable and towels were large and fluffy. I would absolutely stay again if I found myself in the area next year for the same event!

This hotel has been around for years, as I've stayed here since I was 9 yrs.' old. It has been known by different names, but every time we drive through Kentucky this is where we stop. Pool is great, close to great restaurants.

Just wanted to say that I recently reserved a room at the Clarion for the weekend of my friend's wedding (#Bridesmaid). Spoke to both Melodie and Adrianne who were absolutely sweet and helpful with answering all the questions I had. You two rock!!

This is an older property, but that is okay, I've stayed in newer hotels that were horrible. It appears that at some point it used to be separate buildings and the pool was outside. That's the thought I had as soon as we went in the room and there was a 2nd door that went to the outside on the... More

The Clarion Hotel in Lexington is really big and spread out on several wings. We were staying for a wedding in the hotel and were not all together which would have been nice. There for two nights and had the same free breakfast with no fresh fruit except an apple or orange (it's summer!) Rooms were really outdated but the... More

Three star ratings are different in different locations! Thus Clarion is at best 1 1/2 stars. Pet friendly and smells that way. Too tired to go on so stayed. Too tired to complain. Old and needs a lot of updating. Room appeared to be clean but!! Drive on if you can.

We are just leaving tired and disappointed. We didn't even stay for breakfast because the room was disgusting. There were water stains and holes in bedding. It felt like bugs were crawling on us. It was so musty our beds felt wet. As well as my sons books looked crinkled by the moisture. Absolutely disappointed thought it would be like... More

My family and I had the most wonderful dinner this evening. It was nice to be able to relax where we were staying. Our waiter Larry couldn't have been more pleasant and accommodating. We loved the rooms and adored the dinner! Thank you Larry:)

The hotel is very large with a great game room, exercise room, hot tub and heated indoor pool. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was great with a large area for guests to seat and enjoy their food. Check in and check out was easy and fast.
