“Need new maids”
Reviewed November 17, 2010

I stayed at this hotel because of past positive experiences with Hampton Inn, but this one was at the low end of quality. The hallways were dirty; I was a single female and not happy that they placed me in a ground floor room by the parking lot; the bed covering appeared quite "used". I really didn't want it close to me at night. Mostly though I had an issue with how the bed was made. The sheets were on sideways from best I could tell, and within a few minutes came right off the corners of the mattress. I had to tear the bed apart and remake it. Towels were thin...over all I would not stay here again. It seems to be a rundown hotel...

We stayed here to attend the World Equestrian Games at Kentucky Horse Park. After reading the reviews I was really worried that it was going to be awful, but It was fine. The room was not spotless, but it was adequate. It is an older Hampton Inn, but the staff was all very friendly, the beds were very comfortable, and the breakfast was just what I needed for my hungry teen.

A shout out to Patrick who went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and always had a smile!

On the way from California to NYC we stayed overnight in Lexington. We decided to stay close to the Interstate and were trying to find a decent Hotel.
Online feedbacks on this one were just ok. But other places around did look worse. And other Hotels we looked for were just too far away.

So we checked in here. The front desk staff was friendly and the Hotel and the room clean. Everything here is a little on the older side, so there could be some improvement. But the place was quiet and good for one night and the neighbourhood seemed safe.

The room is pretty standard, has a flatscreen but no microwave or fridge. The rest of the room was ok, but all in all overpriced for what it offers.

Still, it's an ok place for one night. And lacking other good options it's still decent enough to spend a night. If we come back, it still might be an option.

Rooms were dirty with mystery splatter on the TV, the door frames, and the carpet. The doorknob in the bathroom was broken/missing pieces, the shower curtain rod was falling out of the wall and sagging in the center. The bathroom was too small to accomodate the granite vanity that is an apparent attempt to update an obviously OLD property. Inadequate parking under normal circumstances, but the fact that the Fairfield Inn that shares the parking lot was being re-roofed and had equipment and materials occupying about 1/4 of the spaces made a bad situation worse. I slept in my vehicle, which I had to park off of the property. The town was booked for a high school basketball tourney, so we couldn't find another room -- checked out a day early, however.

I read some of the old reviews, but have always been pleased with Hilton properties and decided to give it a try. Location is easy access to New Circle Rd and convenient to the South side of UK's campus. Bed was comfy, bathroom clean, and the staff was very nice. Just right for my weekend trip.

Quiet simply, the rooms are extremely dirty and the furniture and fixtures are run down and not well maintained.

The bathrooms are horrible and not sanitary at all. The desk chair was so stained and dirty that I sat on towels. The carpet appears to have never been cleaned since it was put down. The smoke smell in my non-smoking room penetrated my clothes and my luggage.

As mentioned by another reviewer, the breakfast is the cheapest quality of any hotels that I have stayed.

If you choose Hampton for a quality product at a fair price, then don't stay here. If you want to pay a premium price for a less than budget quality room, then.......

The room itself was just OK. The chair was comfortable, there was adequate lighting. The bed was GREAT and they gave me a choice of pillows (I like the small, flat one the best). The breakfast was crummy-- don't count it in as a perk. The coffee in the room (and at breakfast) was weak and cheap. The "free" apples were soft and old. Lots of smoke (first floor is the smoking floor, so you have to wade though the haze to get to the pool and work-out room). The Fitness Center (!) has a treadmill, a bike, and an elliptical machine. Oh, and a TV and some towels. So, not a terrible place, but not a particularly good value.

  • Liked — Free high (sort-of) speed internet
  • Disliked — Terrible breakfast.
