Unfortunately Hairy
January 06, 2019

Originally we were pleased; although we prefer carpeting the room seemed clean at first and the price of the room was great! Plus they were pet-friendly and we had our yellow lab with us. Then we checked the beds, as is our habit. And on both beds, under the comforters and blankets and on top of the fitted sheets, we found a lot of black hair. We pulled the blankets down further and the sheets were actually a bit rumpled. Obviously the sheets had not been changed since the last occupant! That made us wary of the cleanliness of the rest of the room. A call to the night clerk at the front desk revealed that there were no other ground floor rooms available and no staff to change the sheets, but our dog cannot climb stairs (he's too big to carry up a flight) and it was very late, so we settled for a fresh set of sheets that we changed ourselves. The next morning, when we were checking out, the new front desk clerk, Windy, asked how our stay was. My husband told her everything that had happened, and she was very apologetic and gracious. She actually compensated us for the price of the room.

Very clean
December 29, 2018

I’m not a fan of motels, mostly because they are hit or miss. Especially regarding cleanliness. The grounds were fine. However, we noted during our stay last night that the room was spotless. A shout out to Laura who cleaned our room is in order. A clean room after a week on the road is a blessing and much appreciated.

Great Place To Stay
December 05, 2018

I was recently at this hotel and was very impressed. The desk person Windy was very helpful in places to eat and visit while in Lexington. I was greeted with a sincere smile and wonderful personality. I will be back.

Only place we stay in Lexington

Rooms are clean, price is right, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Easy on and off main roads, close to food, mall, and hospitals. Upgraded WiFi is now awesome! Thank you Windy for all you do.

Stayed here for the 3rd time. Not so sure about it now...
November 05, 2018

We stayed here for the 3rd time (in 6 years) for the Georgia vs. Kentucky football game. Although the room we had (standard King) was very small, it was clean and we had not problems with it at all. We travel with a fan, so didn't hear any outside noise at night. Since our last visit, hotel is starting to look sort of old and dingy from the outside. If you had not read a review, or stayed here, you probably would not stay here because of what it looks like outside. (not dirty, just old and worn looking) Microwaves and refrigerators are not standard in all rooms. (ours didn't have them) There is no breakfast provided. I noticed that the management had made a response to my last review noting the same thing two years ago, saying that coffee was provided in the lobby 24/7. We arrived back at the hotel after the game at around 8 p.m. and the lobby was locked, with a sign asking people to use the night window. So, coffee was not accessible. We needed some extra towels on Friday evening, and found a maid outside with her cart. Asked her for extra towels, which she gladly gave us, but first she replied very loudly, "This is your frickin lucky day". She looked drugged out! The location is convenient as far as on and off the street, and is a quick, straight drive down to the UK stadium. There is a Red Lobster, a local pizza/pasta buffet and game room, and a Chik-Fil-A within walking distance, as well as a Starbucks. However, within equal walking distance is also a large purple building, which I think is a strip club! With all that being said, we really enjoyed staying here for the last several years while in Lexington for the game. However, not sure if we will return. The room was clean, and fine...however the outside was starting to look rundown, and the maids looked and acted shady!
