TripAdvisor Ratings

solid basics for a "Lower Tier" hotel
October 15, 2018

This property has a lot of first time reviewers which is certainly a sign that one should consider. We stayed here with reasoned expectations considering the fact that this is a property in the lower tier of hotels. It is located just off exit 19 on East Circle. Good location for access to dining, shopping or the University of Kentucky. Check-in was quick and it was here we were advised that all rooms are open for pets. We were aware that the hotel states that it is a pet friendly property but expected that there would be pet free rooms as well. There are no pet free rooms. Upon arrival to our room, the room clearly had been well sprayed to mask the smell of pets. This was a welcome scent but once a room has a pet smell it is questionable at best to be able to ever overcome pet smells. Eventually later that evening the pet smell overtook the heavy scent. Not too bad but certainly noticeable. Room had a nice flat screen television, a desk top with a chair and a second chair. The wall unit cooled the room fairly well. The bathroom was very small and tight. The water pressure was very weak. Towels were not the bottom tier thin towels often offered guests. The room floor had a hard floor surface with carpet around the beds. The floor was clean enough to wear your socks around the room. However I would not consider going barefoot or permitting a toddler to have access to the floor. The sheets were clean and the bed not uncomfortable. There was some utilities work (or so it appeared) that closed a section of the parking lot drive around. In summary, this Red Roof Inn would be a good choice if you are traveling with pets. We did note both days that indeed a lot of guests did indeed have pets with them. Not so much a consideration if you have any allergies. I would be hesitant to stay here if you have infants or young children. The area around the hotel seemed fairly safe all things considered.

Return visit this year did not disappoint!

Clean rooms, comfortable beds and excellent desk people & maids. Very friendly & helpful. One of the few hotels we stay in that you can walk around in your bare feet and they don't get black. Will stay here again next year.

Great service

I absolutely love this place. Windy makes great hot coffee and great with customers. Dylan makes great ice coffee and is also great with customers. The rooms are always very clean. Johnny is a great manager he always asks how my day is.

We had a wonderful stay the hotel was very clean an customer service was excellent. I left something there an didn’t realize it until I got home. So I called an spoke with the desk clerk an they were so polite an assured me that the manager would get back with me. An they have an I told them I would pay the shipping price for it but they are sending it to me with out cost. I would recommend this place if you’re staying in Lexington. Plus your close to shopping hospitals.
