Reserved room for two nights. Ended up checking out after one. We got the suite that holds up to 6 people. Ended up sleeping on floor instead of pullout couch. Will not be staying here again.

walking into the lobby I knew it was old, cracked tiles, dated appearance. however, it looked clean. It was mid-night. we had been traveling since 7 a.m. We asked for a non-smoking room. I guess it was non-smoking because there were no ashtrays, but the lingering smell of past smokers still reside in the carpet and drapes. peeee uuuuu! Bed... More

Apologies to this guest. The vast majority of our rooms are very clean, comfortable and spacious. However the hotel has not been updated or remodeled in several years and has been heavily used. There are a few rooms that are not as nice as they should be. It is for this reason as well as the new owner's efforts to... More

Nothing over the top, but it was a place to rest our heads with the baby and the dog. No breakfast, and the rooms were pretty tight. There was hair in/on our tub upon checking in but we just washed it away.

We are just beginning a remodeling of the hotel. We will have all new beds and bedding, new carpets and furniture and lots of additional amenities. When finished our hotel will be an even more incredible bargain for the money. This will be the first remodeling of the hotel in several years and is an effort on the part of... More

Nice hotel room. Clean and up to date. Only concern was parking due to wedding at hotel. Bathroom fan was a little noise but nothing that would keep me from staying there again. Close to restaurants and store for shopping.

Our hotel is a very nice place to stay and on behalf of the hotel I appreciate this guest's comments. In addition to being a clean safe place we have a wonderful, helpful front desk staff and we're right off the interstate, midway between Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio etc. and Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Alabama. A perfect stopping place!... More

OK - so we have stayed here before and found it a nice hotel for the money. Not this time. We had booked a two night stay for UK Family weekend. We stayed in room 132 and it had an outdoor entrance. I DO NOT DO hotels like that. But I sucked it up and said what the heck it's... More

I apologize for any inconveniences experienced by this guest during her stay with us. It is amazing to read the vast differences in reviews from guest to guest. One guest gives the hotel 5 stars and describes it as very clean, nice with a very friendly helpful staff. The next one says it's the worst hotel they've ever stayed in.... More

Howard Johnson hotels had gone downhill in the past years in my opinion, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The room was quite spacious with plenty of room for the desk, easy chair, dresser, fridge, night stands and a small table beside the chair. I am in a wheel chair and didn't have problems navigating. The bathroom accommodated... More

Our hotel is very nice. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. For the money we think this is great bargain and we will look forward to serving this guest's hospitality needs whenever he is in the Lexington area. FYI we are beginning a remodeling of the hotel that will include new carpets, new... More
