Great location. Everything as expected, except for noise from ambulance sirens all night and check out . Very close to UK hospital so I guess this was expected. Also, could not give me a bill when I checked out. They said to get it through my booking source, which was a travel agency. They said they couldn't even give me... More

We were booked at University Inn by the doctor's office for the night before a surgery and did not have to pay out of pocket, so I can't rate the value. However, the room was very nice. Everything was neat and clean. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows and a fluffy duvet. The Samsung TV was crystal... More

This hotel is situated across the street from UK. It was extremely convenient to walk or get a ride (due to snow - just a California girl here). Coffee was great in the morning. Rooms are large with a refrigerator and microwave but not a "kitchenette." Staff are really nice and helpful. Slept pretty well in the non-feather environment!

Love staying here when we visit Lexington! It only takes us three minutes to get to our son's dorm room. We stay here every time we come to Lexington. The rooms are large, have all the necessary accommodations such as microwave, refrigerator, cable TV, free Wi-Fi, decent complimentary breakfast, small work out facility. The entire facility is always clean and... More

University Inn Hotel was recommended to my father for a pre-admission stay before his admission the next day. Reading previous reviews and knowing I would be close to where my dad was a patient, I called the hotel and spoke to the front desk about accommodations. I stayed in a king room with refrigerator, bar sink, and microwave, within a... More

The location was very convenient for our visit and close to so many restaurants and bars. We went for a racing weekend at Keeneland and highly recommend if the price is right. I found an amazing deal on Hotwire and only paid $60. It's two smaller buildings that are right next to each other and share a parking lot. We... More

The location is on the campus of the University of KY. The UK hospital is close by and some campus housing, but the area was surprisingly quiet. The room offered a microwave and mini fridge, which were nice touches for the price. The beds are comfortable. The bathroom is nice, but the sink is very small with no counter space.... More

Pleasantly surprised ! Although the hotel was a little dated, I found it to be all that I needed. It was very quiet and calm. The room was clean and spacious with a little kitchenette. The bed was sooo comfy! The breakfast buffet was fine. The location was perfect since my brother was in Baptist Hospital less than a mile... More
