15 years ago I stayed at this hotel and was not happy, but I sure am glad I returned. I was greeted by a friendly desk clerk who made feel like I was entering her home. She recommended I upgrade to a deluxe king for a nominal fee, so I could have a refrigerator and microwave. I was impressed with... More

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel twice per week over the last few weeks, due to a major bathroom remodel. We have had nothing but first class service every time. The rooms have been in excellent condition. One of the rooms was missing a hair dryer. The front desk immediately furnished one to us, and the maintenance... More

We stayed here a few nights while daughter was at volleyball at UK. Basic digs (no pool and such) but location was great-little over 2 miles from UK plenty of places to eat nearby and close to shopping and near local attractions. Our room was a superior king (firm) which was nicely layed out and clean at a good price.... More

Our first room had a broken TV remote control. The front desk promptly sent up a gentleman to replace it. Then we turned on the AC and found it extraordinarily loud (my phone app indicated it was 90 decibels when cooling on high). Another staff member came up promptly and advised us that we should change rooms. Fortunately, we had... More

No breakfast, sticky floors, poor lighting. Super 8 has rooms with the same price with a better inn experience. I would not recommend, unless you are able to get a great deal on a room. Not worth $65.

The room was very neat and clean and the staff was friendly. I enjoyed my stay and would likely chose for one of my top hotel choices. It's a good place to stay when you are looking for a reasonable price especially for those who travel quite a bit.

Recently renovated hotel. I stayed in room 307..room was very nice and clean. Bed wasn't too hard, water pressure was great and water got hot quickly. There's only 1 elevator to get to 2-3 floors and it was a bit slow so I took the stairs a few times, no big deal. All staff I encountered was friendly. The grounds... More
