HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This hotel is attractive, clean, and very comfortable. The front desk staff were very accommodating and very quickly took care of a minor problem that we experienced. The room was attractive and homey, though not overly spacious. It included a refrigerator, microwave oven, and a mini Keurig coffee maker with several k-cups. The bathroom was comfortably large and contemporary and...

My room was a suite that was an upgrade because I am a member. It was spacious, clean, and convenient for navigation. The hall lights were amazing...lit above the door, but also aimed to the place where you slide the key for entry. The staff were friendly and very helpful upon check-in and as I departed. The breakfast was good,...

My family and I are on the hotel snobby side. We usually stay in Hyatt or better high-rises, but we were coming to Lexington for a high school event, and we needed to stay near the University and with the team. I must say, this hotel ticked all of the boxes. Great staff (thanks Kayla), clean rooms, outstandingly diverse breakfast,...

This makes several times we have stayed at this hotel and have never been disappointed. The hotel has always been clean, great breakfast, friendly staff. We are so happy we joined the awards program. We were offered an upgrade to suite if we wanted. Great location. Grocery store, DQ, and numerous restaurants in walking distance. The only noise was from...

Reasonably priced, clean, and convenient to all the places we wanted to see in Lexington, this Holiday Inn was just perfect for our needs. Fairly quiet given its location next to a busy street too. Definitely recommend it!

Nice hotel near UK campus close to near by shopping center and restaurants within walking distance. Across the street from popular off campus housing perfect for visiting my daughter for parents weekend. Free breakfast was nice and priced right. DownFALL Located near train tracks

Very clean, staff was terrific, decent breakfast, a little noisy with the doors slamming, but the bed was the WORST, gets a MINUS 10!! Like sleeping on cement. Most important part of the stay, why remodel and not replace mattresses!? I will stick with Marriott.

Excellent one-night stay. Check-in was easy, staff was friendly and accommodating. Lobby nicely decorated - free cookies! We were pleasantly surprised by an upgrade in room and a gift in our room for my husband's birthday. Great touch! Everything in the room was clean and spacious.

The property has been recently updated, is extremely clean, and the staff is outgoing and wonderful. Small touch, but one I love is that there's a nightlight built into the bathroom outlet so if you like a bit of light at night, you don't have to leave any other lights on. We have stayed here multiple times and there are...
