Need hotel and local transportation help

Flying into Lex airport arriving 11:30 pm, then going to University the next day. I'm worried about car rentals being closed if we arrive late. I only found one hotel with airport shuttle, but it doesn't run past 10 pm, so was thinking I might need to take a taxi to hotel when we arrive. I would then need a way to get to/from the campus from the hotel the next day. Do any hotels have local shuttle that would work for this? Any other ideas welcome! THanks.

You would probably need to take a taxi from the airport to your hotel at that hour. There are almost always taxis waiting outside of baggage claim. Maybe you could check into some of the hotels that are within walking distance to uk. Parking around uk is a real pain and is near to impossible without a permit so might be able to walk or taxi anyhow.

Are you going to UK or Transylvania and which building are you going to?

Call your hotel and check on their shuttle service. I have been fortunate to get shuttle service late and you might too.

Also, check on having a rental car delivered to your hotel in the morning.

It never hurts to ask.

If you stay at University Inn you can walk to UK. It's across the street. If you stay there just get a cab from the airport
