Unfortunately we stumbled across this hotel late at night, we were passing through and didn't have the energy to go elsewhere. This hotel earns the distinction of worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Dirty, dusty carpets; stained upholstered chairs & curtains; dirty, scuffed walls and floorboards, bathroom last remodeled approximately 50 years ago; no batteries in smoke detectors ( I... More

We had to stay in this hotel because of a power outage at home. There are no amenities whatsoever. Its basically a cheap "roadside" motel, only intended for very small stays (3 days or less). If their is any other hotel available in Lexington, choose that one.

First I will tell you the positves; cheap, good location to town, fridge & microwave and comfortabe beds. Now for the negatives and reasons I would advise you stay anywhere else; old and not kept up, wooden beams holding up ceiling tiles, old electric fixtures not working, got locked out of our room and was told once they finally got...

For a single person, $55 per night for a room with two full-size beds. Friendly staff. Good fridge. Decent internet (can watch streaming movie). No coffee maker. Marginal towels. A little off the beaten path. The location works well for me, but I would stay elsewhere otherwise.

Not only did the staff charge $20 more than advertised ($60 for a room as opposed to $40), but the room was beyond dirty and the shower curtain was covered in mold. They refused to offer a refund and were very rude when confronted with the conditions of the room. One of the beds was broken and was on a... More

Stayed 3 nights. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Nice older motel with real tile bathroom. Not fancy. The staff remade my bed and placed the extra pillow I took from the other bed on top - a nice touch.

This place was pretty bad. I travel ALOT and know what to expect from a hotel. I've stayed in worse places, but not many. The place was expensive. The room I had was meant for 2 beds. At some point, they had removed one of the beds leaving the headboard still attached to the wall. The paneling was coming off... More

Woke up this morning to see a bedbug crawling away from my pillow!!! Apart from the critters the rooms are large, the walls could use some paint. There is wifi and a large TV. But.... Bugs are not acceptable!!!!!

The room was clean for the most part, but the walls are thin and the neighbors noisy. The bathroom sink water ran brown for 10 minutes. The whole place needs an updating, including the staff who barely speak English except to say "Yes Please" every two minutes. Had I not been tired from my SC drive up, I would have... More

This hotel is cheap and clean. Allows pets for $10.00 extra per pet. Owners are very friendly and nice local resturant next door. Easy to get to using bypass 11 outside of downtown Lexington. Only 5 minutes to center of Lexington. This is the place to stay if you are only interested in a place to sleep, nothing fancy just... More
