We staying in the suite. Hopefully with the remodel there will be new sofa beds as the ones there now are pretty bad. We weren't even sure there were clean sheets on them and after going down for some were given some extra bedding. The breakfast was just OK but did the trick. The staff were all very friendly and...

We have just begun an extensive remodeling project that is scheduled to run for the next few months. When completed we will have new carpet, new beds and bedding, new furniture, new 40" flat screen TVs and lots of updated amenities. I am not sure what plans we have for the suite in particular but I believe there will be... More

Here 1 night, in town for Garth Brooks. Booked on line for $50, king bed. Well worth it, large clean room ground floor. Staff nice and friendly, soda's only $1 from the machines, parking right there, decent breakfast included as well. fuel and restaurants close by. Well worth the $, don't shy away from Ho-Jo's at least not this one.

We have an indoor Jacuzzi/hot tub that is open year-round and we are conveniently located just off I-75 at exit 110 close to shopping, Walmart and numerous wonderful restaurants.

I stayed here on 11/15 and it was my 2nd visit at this particular hotel. Had a good visit the first stay, so I decided to try it again. The location is absolutely great, with a Cracker Barrel in walking distance, gas stations and a Walmart less than a mile away. As for the actual hotel, great staff!! Rooms were... More

The regency suite was spacious but not as updated as the pictures suggested. The beds were clean and neat w nice linens but the bathroom had black marble and brass fixtures that were corrode from the 80s. The floor in the bathroom could have been cleaner and the shower looked like it had soap scum on it near the bottom.... More

Stayed here again for the Georgia v. Kentucky game. The rooms were remodeled a few years ago and are clean, comfortable, and up-to-date, the location by the interstate is convenient, the continental breakfast is solid, and the price is right. I recommend this property for a value oriented stay. It is also an easy drive to downtown Lexington and local... More

My only problem this time was bathroom light was out and although I did speak with a maintenance man apparently I did not tell him which light so therefore he did not replace I think he could have checked them and figured it out. On the whole the... More
