I just posted a review to the wrong hotel. Stayed here over the weekend it was great! Had a sleep over the girls enjoyed themselves and the hotel was accommodating. The continental breakfast was the best I've had in a while. The attendant was better friendly as well. It also saved me a TON of money!!

We had an excellent stay at this hotel while in Lexington for a family reunion. Everyone at the front desk was personable and helpful. The breakfast was very good with a wide selection of item to choose form. Teresa was very personable, checked on us often to see if there was anything we needed, and got to know us by... More

Very nice facility, clean and orderly, despite the renovations and repair work during our stay. Disappointed that the jacuzzi was not working. Robert at the front desk was very helpful, friendly, and courteous in assisting with those items we had forgotten and making sure there were plenty of pool towels. The breakfast staff also did a fine job keeping up... More

Think this may have been the worst mattress I've slept on in years. To make matters worse, the A/C sounded like a jet engine. One positive, just around the corner from Starbucks so I could load up on caffeine this morning.

My family and I had an excellent stay and a wonderful breakfast, thanks to the friendly and courteous staff, such as Ken at the front desk and Teresa in the kitchen/dining area. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times and will continue to book rooms here.

Booked three nights -- stayed five (at this writing). Ha! The staff is great -- big shout out to Becca for her especially pleasing personality and friendliness. The room was very, very nice. We needed a refrigerator for medicine so ended up with a king suite and it was a great room. It had a fridge, a bar sink, microwave... More

Was in Lexington for business and stayed 4 nights at this HIE. We usually stay at HIE and this hotel was located downtown to better see the sites after my meetings. After being spoiled in a newer HIE in Ohio, this one at first glance was not up to par, no fridge or microwave, so-so beds and very thin walls.... More

Location was great. We were able to get downtown quickly. The room was clean. The breakfast staff was fantastic. She was overly friendly and made sure we had everything we needed and even went out of her way to make sure everyone was comfortable. The entire staff was friendly from check-in to check-out. I would highly recommend this hotel and... More
