When I go home to visit my family I stay with the folks at holiday inn... Why?... because they treat you like family. The morning before I was schedule to leave, I was in the lobby getting coffee. Tiffany the night desk clerk saw what I was doing and said wait... I will make a fresh pot of coffee for... More

They have cookies in the afternoon in the lobby, a nice indoor pool and hot tub. Tiffany at the front desk was nice and accommodating. I stood at the desk and watched her help a customer with a difficult problem, she solved it without a hiccup. The regular rooms didn't have a mini refrigerator so I planned ahead and didn't... More

Wow! I have never had such check in service! Even in 5star hotels in Europe we have never had such friendly and helpful service. I really wasn't expecting this from a Holiday Inn Express. Kudos to Tiffany. She had information we didn't even know we needed but would have had to ask about later- wi-fi, where to go for dinner,... More

Came in late Sunday night after 1am at the airport and the Holiday Inn Express was a short cab ride away. Tiffany was friendly and efficient at the front desk. Room was clean, breakfast good, but best of all was location, which was really only 5 minutes away from where I needed to be for business.

I had a great experience at this hotel. I stay at Holiday Inn Express a lot and this was one of the friendliest. We had a late arrival and Tiffany was so hospitable. It was a great breakfast the next morning as well. When I am back in town this is where I will be staying. Thank you for a... More

I have never had a bad experience at a holiday inn and this place was no exception. Great service and a very beautiful clean hotel. The girls at the desk were attentive and very friendly. The breakfast was so fresh and delicious! We requested towels and got them right away. There was nothing left to be desired from my stay... More

In town on business with the Ohio State University Medical Department. We booked multiple rooms early but, we had numerous changes to make upon arrival. Becca, (the sweet southern girl us Northerner's aren't used to seeing) who made our earlier reservations, made everything seamless and accommodated our changes very easily. I have no qualms recommending this hotel to anyone needing... More

I have stayed many nights in Lexington, this is the first time staying at this location and downtown. Liked the location and it had a great restaurant in walking distance, believe it was called Thai & Mighty. Staff recommended it to us, and we had a great meal and ice cream.

Not much to add really, you get what you pay for with a holiday Inn express. Service was good, efficient and welcoming! Rooms, clean, tidy but nothing special. Breakfast - the standard, hot and cold food. Only thing to note, is the hotel states "DownTown", it is NOT downtown though. It cost us $4 for an UBER too downtown. Its... More
