Stayed here for a quick overnight after a later arrival into the LEX airport.
The hotel was very clean and updated. The front desk folks were very friendly and accommodating. There was a nice continental breakfast as well.
The one negative was parking. Due to the late arrival in town, by the time we arrived at the hotel, the parking lot was jammed. We had a difficult time finding a spot, but eventually we did find one near the back of the hotel. It was a relatively well lit parking lot, but could use a bit more lighting in those area.
The hotel is in a good location, close to UK and downtown. Also has easy access to several main roads in Lexington if you need to get to another part of town.
