We stay in the Red Roof Inn South every visit we make to Lexington because of Julie and Wendy the check in girls and Mary Supervisor of house keeping.Our rooms are always clean the beds are comfortable the employees are wonderful.Choice of restaurants are great.We always have our dog with us and there is no charge for pets.We have been staying there for years and are always treated wonderful. I would recommend this location in Lexington for anyone wanting a clean friendly hotel, it is close to Baptist Hospital and you get a discounted rate if you qualify.

Over night stay

Picked this hotel due to the closeness of the airport. We had an early morning flight (5am) the following morning and drove from Louisville. Booked through Price was great. Checked in 10-5-17, around 7ish. Friendly check in clerk (wish I got her name), greeted with a “hello” and a smile when we walked in, she spoke and joked with us. Good appearance and very professional. She’s definitely deserves recognition. Check in was quick and smooth. Second floor room on the backside of the hotel. Room was very small, king bed just about took up the room. But for one night it was perfect. Bed was comfortable and clean. No smoke smell. Room was very clean and smelled clean. Small bathroom but it was decent and Clean. Would I stay again, absolutely. First impressions are everything and that falls back on the check in clerk, she made a wonderful first impression. Close to the interstate and good parking areas, well lit. No noise, felt safe.

Location touts it's 100% smoke free. It has to be a recent change because the place smelled like a dirty ashtray. My sinuses have been a mess for a week since. Doesn't help when other guests stand in their doorways and smoke.

Great Stay!!

I travel every day over an hour for work! Not only do they greet me each time with great personalities, they make sure. I have everything I need! They even recognized that I staying frequently and set me up on the rewards membership! Everyone is very friendly and the rooms are always clean and functioning! I recommend staying here if you're looking for something nice yet affordable!

Another Awesome Experience
September 22, 2017

Traveling to Lexington for the Thoroughbred sales at Keeneland and Fasig Tipton, I have for the last several years stayed at Red Roof Inn, and I have never been unsatisfied. I feel at home, the staff are all just great folks, I especially thank Windy & Marla for above and beyond customer service and kindness, always helpful, always smiling. I could stay anywhere in Lexington honestly, but it is the human factor that for me, makes my time at Red Roof Inn, second to none. I always look forward to my return and I wouldn't think of staying with anyone else.
