“The highest recommendation for this Gem !”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Clean and well appointed with an indoor-outdoor pool, you can't beat it for convenience to Lexington and Louisville. On the outskirts and set well off the beaten path it is peaceful yet convenient to shopping if you so choose. As motorcyclists, we prefer to have direct access to our bikes which is not a problem at this property AND as smokers, we like direct access to outside - a preference is choosing older yet updated properties. This one offered access to the interior hallway as well which was great ! I can't say enough about the cleanliness of this property - and I believe it helps that the owners live right in the area, not far from the property at all. A great value and great location to see all the sights in the Lexington/Louisville area.
Adequate breakfast with enough choices to satisfy all but the most picky. Special thanks to our breakfast hostess who found a way to cut a couple of apples for me and allowed me to take peanut butter so that I could keep my blood sugar level throughout the day.
A definite recommend !!!

Room Tip: I don't think there are any bad rooms here !

We were traveling down to Florida and stayed here between Louisville and Lexington to go to a Bourbon Distillery and Horse Park the following day. It was a pretty property, close to the highway and felt safe and clean. Also there is a higher end property just below it (it sits on a hill) and though they didn't have a hot tub in this best western you could use your hotel key to get into the nicer property's hot tub down the hill....we appreciated that). Breakfast was good in this hotel with good fruit, well maintained and clean, TV with news on and bright and sunny. Sausage and biscuits in a heated contained (a little more than continental). Service was good, rooms were clean, updated and beds were good. Overall a good stay - nice pool inside especially if you had kids (I don't but my 32 year old kids who act like kids anyway got a kick out of it - it's partially inside and partially outside). We were comfortable and happy with our stay here.

Room Tip: We got a room on the ground floor to the left of the front and this made an easy little walk down th...

If you are doing the Bourbon Trail I highly recommend staying here and hitting all the distilleries. Great hotel experience. Nice pool and we loved the cookies at night! It was comfortable room and we slept well while we were there. It was the best hotel we stayed at during our trip.

This Best western hotel in Frankfurt, KY is neat, clean. Staff is polite and friendly. But breakfast room is small and crowded. The general experience is wonderful. This Best Western is good compared to the other Best Western I lived before in Newark Airport in New Jersey. It is an awful hotel. I didn't want to go back and will not recommend. But this Frankfurt one I would recommend.

Motorcycle trip, Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Pulled off the highway and was pleasantly surprised. Love the Best Western Hotels! Always nice when checking in! The room was clean and neat as a pin (I was once a maid in a hotel. I'm VERY picky!) Bonus: pull right up to your door! Bonus: another door from your room into the hotel interior. Lovely pool area too. I would send my parents to this hotel. The "Kids" at check in and out were friendly, helpful and we never had to wait at the desk. All I can say is, really nice property, great price, stay here when you're touring the area. I will again.
