Howard Johnson Inn Lexington
Ranked #45 of 71 Hotels in Lexington
Reviewed October 21, 2012

My sons and I stayed here for 1 night, while visiting UK campus, a day at the track and a Uk football game. We really wasnt in the room that much, a short rest and then a nights sleep. The room was fairly clean and beds were fine. There were numerous places to eat near by, and access to the interstate was easy. The free breakfast in the morning was fine with donuts, waffles, etc. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I did get a little aggravaited when arriving back late at night, our room key would not unlock the door and I had to go to the desk and deal with this. Overall it was a decent place to stay the night for a reasonable price.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while visiting family. The room was clean and the bed was fairly comfortable. Staff was friendly and we weren't bothered by noise. Breakfast was good with a lot of selections. The hot option was prepared french toast which you then heated up in a toaster. My husband said it was ok. There weren't any eggs. I opted for cereal (4 choices) and they also had a selection of danish and donuts. Nothing fancy, but not bad. Unfortunately, the free internet was slow and unreliable. Cracker Barrel is right across the street. Overall, the hotel was good especially considering the price, and was a good location for access to the interstate.

Formerly the Best Western Regency Inn, I didn't know what to expect with the name change, but I was pleasantly surprised. Nice, clean rooms, good breakfast choices. Convenient to I-75. Very friendly & helpful staff. No elevator.

Room Tip: No elevator, so choose a lower floor if you have a lot of luggage. Upper rooms are quieter.

My daughter and I stayed here during our trip to Lexington and we were very surprised and pleased by the hotel.
The room was very large and extremely clean. We heard no noise emanating from outside or other rooms. The air conditioning was wonderful.
Breakfast was the standard fare but very ample.
There was no refrigerator in the room but the ice machine sufficed.
There were a lot more cable channels than I've seen at any other hotel.
There is continual night time security making rounds.
Very close proximity to major highways.
Rebecca at the front desk was really friendly and outgoing. Jim at the main desk seemed annoyed to have to cram in work which disturbed his continual smoking break.
The swimming pool is large and will need repairs in the future. Only three of the jets in the hot tub worked.

All in all, the hotel was super which made our trip to Lexington even better. Thanks!
