“Always an Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We have stayed at the University Inn on multiple occasions over the past 4 years. Each visit has lasted several nights. Every experience has been outstanding, from the friendliness and helpfulness of the front desk staff, to the time spent checking in and out, to the cleanliness of the hotel, to the quality of the complementary breakfast, and to the proximity to the University of Kentucky and the UK hospital complex. The only negative I can think of is the lack of eating establishments within walking distance. I would not hesitate to recommend the University Inn to anyone.

The staff was so welcoming and helpful and my room was clean, comfy and quiet.
I loved the location and the price! Free internet, parking and breakfast are all included in the room rate. Will stay here again when I return to Lexington!

We stayed several nights there while my grandfather was in UK hospital. Although we were just wanting a place to shower and sleep this place was far more.
The beds are incredible and not because I had slept on a cot at the hospital. These beds were some of the best beds I have ever slept on. The linens are crisp clean and all white. I love that they put solid white duvet covers over their alternative down comforter. I wish I would of had time to really enjoy this place more. It is awesome! The breakfast is great. If your going back and forth to the hospital it is well worth the price. The hospital shuttle will take you back and forth if you are not able to walk the 2 blocks. I was so tired I had to use the shuttle. Just call the front desk and they will call for you. It is across the street from the emergency entrance. The free breakfast would cost you $15 to $20 dollars at the hospital cafeteria. The price was more than we were prepared for but it was worth every penny.
The staff is very accommodating in every way, especially when helping you work around the hospital schedule. The rooms stay very booked so feel privileged if they have availabity. The cost is that of a five star resort and worth every cent.

Room Tip: If you want easy access to breakfast stay in the main building. If you want peace and quiet even to...

I have stayed here multiple times and have had no problems. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff are friendly. The location is perfect for UK events or if one needs place to stay near the hospital. I would definitely recommend that you stay here when you visit Lexington.

Paid $130 for a $75 value.

Rooms were Days Inn quality and located across from some off campus party houses. We heard trains and sirens often. I learned the next morning that the hospital was in sight.

There are much better places to stay near the UK campus.
