Hotel is located right off I-75 exit close to downtown Lexington and minutes to Keeneland Race track. Room was clean and comfortable. Wedding at Keeneland and had shuttle service to and from the racetrack compliments of the Bride and Groom.

This resort lives up to most of the reviews I read before traveling. The staff is friendly; the food is good; the decor and furnishings are tired and need attention. With that said, the hotel is beginning a major update/upgrade of its facilities with the golf areas being improved and finished this past May. The grounds are rolling and beautiful,... More

Thank you for your thoughtful review of our Resort! We are placing a few additional signs throughout our property to let our guest know about the wonderful Legacy recreational trail, located directly across the street. This asphalt-paved trail heads to downtown Lexington, and in the other direction, to the Kentucky Horse Park. It is a wonderful, scenic trail for walk,... More

We love this hotel. The staff is always friendly and courteous. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. The beds are the best. We love the thick fluffy towels. Food is very good. And the bar lots of fun. We always enjoy the pool. We stay here for a week every June, probably... More

This was our first stay but we had been here for dinner before and we were not disappointed. The wedding reception was a lot of fun and the staff were all very kind and professional. Our room was a first floor room with a pool view but it was still quiet and comfortable. If you are looking for a beautiful... More

Great location, close to downtown Lexington, very clean and a beautiful hotel. The beds are Tempur-pedic and the rooms are very comfortable and smell very fresh. There are indoor and outdoor pools and an 18 hole golf course. The staff is always very nice recommending different restaurants and things to do in Lexington.

Great location, super clean and quiet, great breakfast and the bed was something else! I slept so well. Solid 24-7 gym facilities and complimentary citrus water at the front! So refreshing. I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Lexington. The staff is also very friendly and helpful!

With a 15 minute drive to downtown Lexington and its brewhouses and fine restaurants, this is a great location just off I-75. As a runner, I found the proximity to the 12-mile Legends Trail appealing (a paved running and cycling path through the Cane Watershed). As a conference center, the hotel was wonderful and affordable. We booked an extra night... More

Stayed here for a wedding. We were pleasantly surprised that they had just replaced all mattresses with tempurpedic mattresses. Super comfy. You can tell the hotel is older but they did a nice job with the remodel. Our suggestions for improvement would be a microwave and an in room safe. The staff was exceptional. Our cab was really late to... More

Absolutely first rate stay. The room was comfortable and it was one of the best hotel beds I have ever slept on. HAVC was great, shower was great, TV selection was great. Great selection of morning papers.Can't think of anything at all that was sub-par.
