TripAdvisor Ratings

Great value if it has what you need.
November 08, 2019

Great value for a basic night's stay: clean, comfortable, and convenient. We didn't need a pool nor lite breakfast for this particular occasion. Also important, my wedding band was inadvertently left in the room and the staff sent it as quickly and efficiently as was the check-in. Thanks.

You can hear everything! Room are not soundproof.

You can hear everything! Room are not soundproof. We could hear road noise, the neighbor in the next room talking & and anything or anyone outside our door. Big gap under entrance door to room where weather stripping should be.We had to put one of the towel under it. I would not recommend staying here.

An excellent staff makes ALL the difference! AAA+++

Easily accessible. No frills but very friendly staff. Sue from the front desk night shift was excellent (11/1/19). She provided information of the area and was very nice. That was very welcomed after a long drive! The room was clean and everything worked just right. The location is very convenient. It even has a Starbucks right next to it. Thank you!

A Cut Above

We have been coming here for 20+ years for the Keeneland horse racing meet and will come here for another 20 years God willing. Everything about this place is first rate. It starts with the location, close to Keeneland and a stone’s throw to a number of nice restaurants. The facility is very well maintained, from the grounds to the rooms themselves. Then there is the price, quite a deal for all of these benefits. While all these are big plusses, the most important piece of all is the service. Windy, Marla and Sue have been here for years and have always displayed a great attitude and willingness to go above and beyond to ensure that our stay is most enjoyable. When planning our twice annual trip to the races, one thing is for sure and that is that we will be staying here at this Red Roof!!

One night stay
September 26, 2019

Very reasonable - nothing fancy but CLEAN! The owner/manager walked around outside which made me feel very safe. Our pets were welcome. Nice grassy area for the dogs and a pet station with bags and a place to put your used bags. Coffee which was very good was in the office. No breakfast but easy access to eating close by. Room doors lead directly outside. Highly recommend.
