I and several colleagues stay here two or three times a year for work reasons as it is the best hotel in the area (not that that's saying much!), and while it is a perfectly fine hotel in terms of the rooms, amenities etc, there is a major issue. I have now had cash taken from the room on two... More

Stayed at the Griffin Gate for work and it was wonderful all around. Gorgeous property and was all decorated for the holidays. Ate in their JW restaurant a few times and it was delicious. Also had a company function in a private room that was delightful. The staff went above and beyond. First, I was in the shower when my... More

We arrived after 10 hours on the road - driving from Ontario . Heavy rains , construction , traffic & accidents . A typical Monday on I-75 . We were greeted by a very hospitable young lady who recognized we were tired & somewhat frazzled . W/out checking with anyone else , she upgraded us to a very nice room... More

Stayed there a few nights ago and it was a nice Marriott, the staff were friendly, and it had a nice bar. The one downside is the tiny bathroom where you almost have to sit on the toilet to use the sink. No free internet either which I find really annoying. I think I will stay at the Embassy Suites...

The hotel and its propery is very nice (my wife said pretty). I was impressed when i received an email from a staff member a few days prior and letting me know i could contact him or an alternate if i needed anything at all. Our whole plan of getting there in time to enjoy the pool and other offerings... More

We checked into the Griffin Gate Marriott to celebrate our 32nd Wedding Anniversary. Our stay was wonderful. The facility staff was friendly from check in to check out. The room was clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. Food in the restaurant was a bit pricy, but excelent and well worth it. The breakfast was amazing. (Great omlet chef). The bar... More

We were there for my daughter's conference. I took care of her 4-mo. old baby while she attended presentations. At check in we requested a crib for the baby and it had been delivered before we could park and bring in the bags! The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast bar was fresh and delicious as were the... More

We stayed at this hotel for a business trip and the check in was somewhat of a breeze. The rooms are nice, however, I am not sure I like the memory foam mattress. When you got into the bed, you could feel yourself sinking into the mattress. And trying to get out was like getting out of a water bed... More

We stayed for a few nights as part of a trip to take part in Run The Bluegrass Half Marathon. This was the host hotel for the race so we opted to stay here. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. The hotel itself was clean and nice as hotels go. They were in the midst of a lobby upgrade... More

Had to find a hotel that was pet friendly along my route from Georgia to Ohio. Griffin Gate is a beautiful property with average rooms. Great location in relation to the major highways and restaurants. The Griffin Gate Mansion, on property is beautiful. Over 150 years old .. see pics. It served it's purpose but other than the property I... More

In addition to our Mansion, we have beautiful trees and bushes, and plush grass - 250 acres in all. Hopefully you found some of our complimentary pet treats at our front entrance. Thank you... More
