5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We arrived and were greeted by a friendly front desk clerk. She was very professional and accommodating. The room was huge with a King size bed that was comfortable and well lit room. After spending the last 16 days in other hotels with rooms alot smaller it was a welcome change with all the space. It seemed like you had to travel to another room to get to the wash-room. Room was priced reasonably since we booked it like 4 to 6 months ahead of time. Will definitely stay here the next time we are in Lexington.

Room Tip: room was centrally located and very quiet.

Spent uneventful 3 nights here, typical motel, carpets could be cleaner, broken security doors. Nothing too offensive for someone who travels, until on my last night I saw a MOUSE run out from under the bed. I don't expect perfection for $60 a night. I do expect to have a room to myself and not share it with critters and crawlers. AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!

Thanks for taking time to comment on your recent stay at Howard Johnson's Lexington. We are very sorry to hear that your stay was anything less than excellent. Please know that your comments have been noted and are being addressed.

We are under new ownership and management and working very hard to make all the necessary changes and updates to make our great hotel an excellent hotel.

Give us a chance to have you leave saying wow.
