“Frequent Visitor, Excellent People”

"I want to send out a very sincere Thank You to Red Roof South in Lexington Kentucky. I stay very often for the horse business, and I could stay anywhere really, but I stay at this Red Roof because the rooms are cost conscious, the staff is top notch, and they always treat me very well. I especially want to thank Windy & Marla who I have gotten to know that the front desk for taking pride in their jobs and caring about the people who stay at their location. I will not stay anywhere else on any trip to Lexington."
