“Above Average hotel stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2011

We booked the L-shape suite with two queen beds and a pull out sofa. The suite had over 600 square feet and was a better option that booking two standard rooms to accomodate 3 adults and 2 kids. The room was very spacious, had a fridge and microwave and was very clean and updated with 2 tvs. Hotel staff was nice. Requested an extra pillow and towel at the front desk and she brought them right out to me. Coffee and hot cocoa were available 24/7. Pool was nice and not cold. Beds were comfy; room temp was well controlled. Breakfast was better than average with lots of choices. We would stay here again for a future visit to Lexington. It was about a 10 minute drive to the Kentucky Horse park.

Everything exceeded expectations. I was here for a one night business trip. Check-in was quick and friendly. Hotel was clean and every area was in like new condition. The room was spacious and comfortable. Have a small gym (cardio equipment) which was convenient and adequate. Complimenatary breakfast was the standard fare for this class of hotel - everything was good and appeared fresh. The location was OK - near strip mall with several restaurant chains. This was satisfactory for a business trip but may not be well suited for a vacation.

We stayed at this hotel based on its excellent ratings and were not disappointed. The room was very comfortable and roomy. Everything was very clean. The bathroom was large and the shower excellent. The bed was a little firm, but very comfortable. The hotel was quiet and so we got a good night's rest. The morning breakfast was the usual HIE fare. There was adequate seating in the breakfast area, although it might have been a little crowded if the hotel were full. Even though the hotel was not very full, the breakfast foods were well stocked and prepared.

This hotel is difficult to find using satellite navigation, but the receptionist 'Paul' is clearly used to explaining directions to struggling customers who call on their mobile phones. We found Paul highly competent and personable.

Our room w as at the rear of the hotel and my wife, who is disturbed by noise at night, was pleased to note the room's double galzing seemed to all but silence the noise from traffic on the nearby highway.

The hotel seems relatively new and although the corridor and carpets seemed dark it is clear that Holiday Inn have furnished the premises with good quality fittings. The room was spacious, comfortable and well furnished. The en suite bathroom was also well presented and like the bedroom lovely and clean.

We enjoyed the hotel's breakfast and it was a pleasure to be offered sausage and gravy with a biscuit as well as cereals, fruit, toast and drinks etc.

All in all a very pleasant stay at clean premises run by friendly competent staff.

This hotel has all the virtues of the best Holiday Inns. It is very comfortable and the staff are very helpful. It is also ideally located for the ring road (New Circle), and for getting to the main attractions in the area. Despite appearnces to the contrary there IS a guest laundry, $2 a time.
Downtown Lexington is an easy short drive away, but is not a particularly appealing place. We did find a couple of nice restaurants however - Alfalfa (partly vegetarian, cheap) and Portofino (Italian, bit pricey). There were chain restaurants (eg Applebees, Taco Bell etc next to the hotel).

This hotel was new when we first stayed there in 7/08, and is still in new condition in ’10. New hotels are always good, especially the nice new plush towels. Hotel was pleasant and staff was excellent, nothing special. Reservation was as requested. Very Good bed, lighting, seating and AC in room, but only fair plug placement; Poor shelf space, that is, room to place luggage, etc. Bathroom: shower Good, three sets of Very Good towels, and very Good lighting. Being a wheelchair-accessible room, however, bathroom counter space was terrible --- very small; however, the hand-held shower was correctly configured to minimize spray outside the shower area. Security, commons, parking, and location were all Very Good.
