We had our floors redone in our home and we stayed at the Red Roof Inn. We had a great day at the Red Roof Inn South in Lexington KY. Great Staff. Windy the Manager treated us like family. Home away from home.

First vacation in 20 years

Stayed here 6 nights in early October. Requested/received a very nice room on ground floor next door to the couple we traveled with. Rooms were clean, staff excellent & very helpful. Received a great rate due to the length of our stay. Close to busy highway, but couldn't hear anything inside the room. Micro & fridge worked great. Will be back next year for sure!

Outstanding staff!

Our stay at Red Roof in Lexington was definitely more than I expected! The room was comfortable, quiet and clean, but the staff at this location is beyond wonderful! Not only friendly and courteous at check-in, but the customer service after our stay was remarkable. I had emailed the hotel to see if a sentimental piece of jewelry I had forgetten there was turned in. The general manager, Johnny, immediately called me to say not only had the cleaning person found it, she had already sealed it up and turned it in - He then offered to ship it back to me! Thank you, Red Roof, Johnny Hart, and your outstanding staff for your superior service and integrity!!

Not directly off I 75

We pick Red Roof Inns because we already know they accept pets, and we stop when we are tired--and don't spend a lot of time to researching or making reservations. However, we made a reservation for this one while in Florida, and knew we would stop at 14 hrs on the way home. Therefore, didn't realize this is a tiny drive off the highway. Not a big deal, just not a quick off and on- like when we usually see a billboard, ask if we are "done", and stop for the night. This is an "open to the street" motel, unlike a different "hotel-like" RR we stayed at in Atlanta. It is very clean, and while upgraded removing carpet, it is not "spa-like" as a more recently upgraded one where we stayed. That's ok. I just want clean and comfortable. It is. I would stay again.

You get what you pay for, and it isn't much

Who ever heard of a hair dryer being part of an upgrade? That was just the beginning. The heating-cooling system didn't work right, the tub wouldn't drain, someone clearly on drugs showed up at our door at 1:30 a.m., and we saw two people casing the parking lot when we left for the airport before dawn. I usually like Red Roof Inns, but not this one.
