I booked 4 rooms, 2 were to be king beds and 2 with 2 queen beds (1 with a cot). Was told that requests would be met and had confirmation numbers. On arrival all rooms were with 2 queen beds and no cot. Also our bathroom found hair and other dirt.

We spent the night here on a trip to Nashville in order to hit some bourbon distilleries the next day. The hotel is right off of the interstate and is great anyone passing through Lexington. The room was clean and the staff was conscientious. It's not the most update hotel, but it's a great bargain for the price! The continental... More

This hotel is easy to get too from the I75 and is not far from Downtown, Lexington, KY. It is clean and has a Cracker Barrel across the road. It's a decent place to stay if you're passing through. We have stayed there 2 times recently. We were on the side of the hotel that faced Cracker Barrel and had... More

We are conveniently located right off the interstate next to Cracker Barrel and I feel we are a terrific bargain for the money. I am... More

The motel had no elevators so everything had to be hauled in via stairs. The beds when you set on them squeaked bad. Could use some interior cleaning of the carpets.

We are well aware that the hotel could use some updating and are in the process of addressing those concerns. It will take time. In the meantime we are still an incredibly good bargain for the money which is why this guest stopped here. We have a terrific staff, clean comfortable rooms, free wifi, a good breakfast, beautiful indoor hot... More

Apologies to this guest for the problems she experienced during her stay with us. We have addressed the issue raised in this review with our staff. I am very sorry that the keycard she used wasn't working when she returned late at night. It sounds as thought the keycard was demagnetized at some point during her busy day which could... More

-THE GOOD- The bed was pretty comfortable and the pillows were a decent size and firm. Not really pillow top quality but comfortable. The TV in my room was a flat screen television mounted on the wall and it worked very well, didn't really watch the cable much since i brought my computer to watch movies and tv shows with.... More

We feel that we are an incredibly good bargain for the money. Contrary to the reviewer's claim we are not in a sketchy neighborhood and can do nothing about other businesses in our area. The Hustler's store mentioned in the review sells lingerie like Frederick's of Hollywood and has nothing to do with prostitution or the selling of pornography. It... More

Great basic stay. Room 150 is a king/smoking room. It is in the 2nd building and parking is right outside the door. Good work area. Decent internet (streaming was not bad at all). Friendly front desk staff. Toilet worked but the tank top is cracked. A cigarette hole in the carpet (it is a smoking room!). Has micro/fridge. Fridge kept... More
