Hood hang out

The hotel was ok for the price... There was some remodeling or construction going on. Still plenty of updating that could be done. The worst part was the horrible marijuina smell that kept lingering into my room!!!

horse weekend

We stayed in the newly redone room? They slapped up paint on the walls and put in new carpet. the furniture was old and the bathroom vanity was old. the coffee pot did not work and the hair dryer did not work. The breakfast offered by the hotel was ok, but hot water for making tea was always gone. Used hotel computer to confirm and print out return flight boarding pass and the printer had no ink and the hotel had no extra ink cartridge available. Staff did offer the use of the computer and printer behind the desk. The staff was excellent.

nasty

My husband and i got a room here last night with our two kids only for the pool. When we got there it was filthy as soon as we pulled up i felt disgisting. There was trash all over the place outside dirty diapers laying all in parking lot. When you walk into door they had it rigged with a towel where any one can come in or out because the key thing didnt work. The whole entire place smelled like raw eggs. When we go to the third floor to our room all you could smell was marijuana and cigarettes as soon as we walked into our room i called front desk to get a refund and he tells me when you pay for cash there are no refunds but to call back in morning when manager is there and he is pretty positive will get refund back. So we i tell him i am leaving and will call in morning as we are walking out he comes up to room EXTREMELY rude calling me crazy and everything else. My husband goes back next morning to get refund and what a suprise they wouldnt give him one. But instead offered us an extra free night. Are you kidding me? Why would we want an extra night at that filthy disgusting place? Carpets stained smelled like smoke when supposed to be none smoking the cleaning lady was standing in hall way with door open smoking. Waist of money. Your renovation isnt gonna save it the whole place needs to be tore down. And im 99percent sure they have bed bugs because when we left my kid had red welps all over her....

Lexington stay

The staff were great. The room was clean. The pool and hot tub area were clean and well kept. It is easy access to all of Lexington. The only problem we encountered was a guest smoking in the non-smoking facility. Staff did everything they could but the smoker ignored all requests to stop.

Over night stay

I love staying in this area. This was our first stay here. The person at the desk when we checked in wasn't very pleasant. Our Non-smoking room turned out to reek of smoke. I did enjoy the pool time with my son.

great place

Hotel is under construction on the first floor, so the hallways were a bit messy, but it was a clean room and a comfortable stay. The staff was very nice and helpful with things to do in the area. I would refer a friend

Great for the price.

Needed a room while traveling across country. The staff was really nice. Average room, but clean and perfect for a one night stay. It's right off the highway making it easy to find.

Late nighters

When we go on a road trip, my husband likes to drive til the wee hours. We had a reservation and arrived bleary eyed and ready to fall asleep immediately. Our room was cool, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Best part of all, it was so quick to get there from the interstate. Would definitely recommend.
