The Hampton Inn Lexington South is in a great location for visiting Lexington. It is very close to Man O War Blvd which connects much of Lexington. Man O War also passes the airport and connects directly to the Keenland racing facility.
The hotel is slightly confusing to initially find - it is in an office park just off Harrodsburg Rd, and there is no hotel sign visible from Harrodsburg. If coming from New Circle Rd, take Beaumont Center Pkwy to the north (right), then first right, then left and look for the sign. There are both a Texas Road House and a Waffle House in the general vicinity, so their signs might help. We were surprised that the hotel directions from the airport did not use the Man O War route.
Room rates were decent for Lexington in April, especially for something so convenient to Keenland. Most area hotels were completely booked the weekend we stayed.
Check-in and -out were flawless with no issues at all and the desk staff were very pleasant.
Our room was very quiet - even with the hotel completely full. We rarely heard anything from other rooms or the hallway. The room had two queen beds and was very clean. Towels were changed after the second day even though we had not indicated that they needed to be changed. The room contained a flat-panel television and coffeemaker (though the coffee available in reception was superior to what it made). The room air conditioner/heater worked very well (we needed both cooling and heating during our stay near the end of April - it was 34 degrees one morning).
The Hampton provided a very nice breakfast buffet and did include some hot items as well as cold. There certainly should be enough to satisfy most anyone. During the week, they provide 'grab and go' breakfast bags for those who do not have time for a 'sit down' meal.
Overall, it was a very pleasant stay and we would recommend this Hampton Inn without question.
