My husband and I booked a three-night stay here because we were in town for a funeral. We almost always choose a Red Roof Inn as we travel with our mini-poodle. While there were some good things at the Lexington South Red Roof Inn, there were also some issues. On the positive side, this hotel is an easy exit off...

It was adequate, clean, fairly priced, though far off I-75. A hair dryer and coffee in the room would have been hits. The motel was very close to a Red Lobster and a K-Mart, however long that may remain open.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I wanted to let you know about our Superior King. These rooms have hairdryers, inn room coffee, irons, and ironing boards. For a small additional fee you can upgrade to this room type instead of our standard room. You are correct, we are several miles from I-75, but we are...

The hotel is located in a congested area, but once the door was closed I did not hear the traffic. Even though I stayed in a smoke-free room, the first thing I noticed was that it smelled like smoke. After investigating, I found cigarette butts in one of the drawers. Everything else was clean.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am truly sorry that the housekeeper did not get the drawer cleaned out. There are times that guests do not always honor our smoke free policy. However, it was our fault for not catching it. I'm glad that everything else in the room was clean for you. We hope...
