Nothing Special

This hotel is comfortable but nothing special. The staff was friendly and we have no complaints. The continental breakfast was ok, no waffle iron. We would stay here again, a good value.

Weekend Getaway

It was a great experience with service & front desk staff. I only wanted to state Regency Hotel on the front of the building was a little confusing for the hotel name. I thought I was in the wrong hotel with many others near by, Please consider removing or updating for guest. Will visit again soon.

Miss use of Bonus Bucks

So we picked this hotel for the price, past experience and current reviews. I've always been told you get what you pay for. This wasn't even worth the money I spent. I feel like this was the worst represented hotel... maybe they are working on upgrading the rooms - but the room we stayed at should not have been rented out based on the reviews. We booked a two night stay and I could not stay there more than the first night (to be honest I wanted to leave after the first night). Check in was very slow - no fault of his but they had one person on during a sold out hotel. Waiting 15-20 minutes to check in was not good. The carpet had stains, toilets, showers and fridges in the back entrance way, We had an outdoor entrance which I would not have booked here had I known that. Dust, spider webs in the room. This place was so bad.

outdated and unattractive

I will not be staying here again. The hallways had old dirty torn out toilets in them and gutted refrigerators sitting out side on the stairwell. The beds are very old and had springs popping in them. I guess you get what you pay for I won't be staying at a HJ again.

NICE PLACE

Everything was good here, only a couple of minor problems such as the message light on the phone flashed all night and the girl at the front desk did not know how to turn it off. She was very helpfull other than that. Clean, comfortable and priced right, will definitely stay here if I get back to Lexington.

Horrible Beds

This would be a great hotel if sleeping on a granite counter top wasn't more comfortable that sleeping on their beds.
