Thoughtfulness and Courtesy Rules
April 22, 2018

Always met with a smile by Marla and/or Wendy. Have stayed at this property each and every time I am in town.( over 16 years of great service ) Their service is excellent, timely and always friendly. I feel like I am at home when I stay at Red Roof Lexington South especially because of Marla and Wendy. I consider them friends forever. Thank You Wendy and Marla for another great stay. Be seeing you on my return visit. Mark.

Well kept, clean, modern, allows pets, near Fayette Mall, near UK campus/sports complexes and hospitals. All kinds of eating places near. Recommend without hesitation. Manager Johnny Hart, Marla at front desk, and Mary in laundry/housekeeping dear friends. 😃😃😃

Arrived late and left early
April 16, 2018

We knew we would be arriving late at night, so I thought we would save a little money. Bad idea... First, the front desk wasn’t the most personable. Then, the elevator smelled like smoke (supposed to be smoke free rooms, so nothing really stated no smoking in the elevator). Made it to the room, upon the first appearance realized it wasn’t the nicest place, but thought it would do. After tearing the covers down to check the sheets and bed, noticed that the sheets were covered in hairs! Not one or two, but many hairs. So, that wasn’t bad enough, after taking a shower, I felt dirtier then I did prior. There were thick, really thick, hairs on the towels. Couldn’t imagine what might have came out once the lights went off... Just kidding, slept with the lights on. Actually, woke up half-an-hour before the alarm went off. Picture on the website was very deceiving. Oh yeah, the floors were also very sticky for no apparent reason. I wouldn’t have booked knowing what I do now.

Decent place for the money

The room was clean and the facility itself was in ok for the price point. We did not have many options to choose from during the time we were there. No issues with the room we stayed in. Beds were comfortable but the pillow were extremely lacking.

Wouldn’t be staying ever again
April 06, 2018

Stopped in Lexington as a halfway point to our destination. We chose redroof in for its decent price point as we were just looking for a place to sleep then get up and get back on the road. It was about 10pm when we checked in, had to use the night window to check in because the lobby was closed. The vending room/night window room reeked of marijuana. I got a key and looked at the room before finishing my check in. We all agreed it wasn’t great but we needed to rest. I finished my check in and headed upstairs to the third floor. None of my keys worked, I made three trips to get it remedied, still not sure if it was the keys or the door that was messed up, however at after 10pm in the cold and rain with three other people waiting to get in our room and luggage in hand it wasn’t fun at all. Once we got in the room our bedspreads had stains and there was stuff on the floor. The Cleaning leaves a lot to be desired. The beds are super loud, springing noises just from sitting down or turning over and very uncomfortable. Everything is loud, it took forever to go to sleep because of sirens and traffic. Once everyone finally got to sleep we were woke up just a little after 4am to a trash truck backup beeper and it dumping the dumpsters which sounded like huge booms! Needless to say we all got up by 5 and got ourself together and went on our way. I wish we would have stayed somewhere else, felt like a waste of my money for sure.
