“Average at best especially if you like stink bugs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

my wife and stayed there last week, the week of oct 7. We had many stink bugs in our room and espcially near the balcony. I managed to kill them all which I would say there was 15. My wife was very upset though we were only staying one night so I managed to get her to stay. Ok, other then that the room was large. Outdated though the bathroom was not so bad. Breakfast was ok though no meat. Waffles were good though. I would not stay again. Spend the extra $20 and stay without bugs somewhere else.

Up grades need to made here. We stay here twice a year for many years and the only thing that has changed is the bed spreads.chairs need to be on the balcony so the beautiful view of the mtns., can be enjoyed.

View of hotel from the highway-impressive. View of the surrounds from the hotel-impressive.
The you move in--rooms were clean(then)but dingy. Beds OK-bathrooms newly redone, but on the cheap. Went across hall when called by another judge for horseshow we were in Lexington to judge--smelled moldy.
Sleep/shower, cosmetics all in place-coffee machine the cheapest-coffee(used two bags to get some flavor. Breakfast, cereal, fruit, egg structures(?), waffles. Gave girl $ 5 to geOFFICt hot sauce--took money, still no hot sauce.
Then the word from the rest of show group--stink bugs in the upper floors--
As days passed, threw pistachio shells on floor to get it vacuumed--no shampoo, no lotion, never changed bed sheets in 6 days I was there.
NO BUSINESS CENTER & CATHODE RAY TVS---impossible you say---bet me!
desk staff very polite & trying to help--easier to prevent a fire than put one out---!!!

Room Tip: Stay on ground floor--DO NOT ACCEPT upstairs rooms--stink bug infestation(apparently every Fall)
