The University Inn offers unique amenities without loading up on services that most travelers do not use but cost extra elsewhere.You will find that the University Inn is value priced in comparison to other hotels or motels with comparable amenities.We offer corporate and AAA rates.We hope you will consider us for your next Lexington visit. . University Inn has three floors and two buildings with elevators and oversized room and bath accomodations as well. Choose from beautifully decorated single and double and king bedrooms. Handicapped rooms are available. . Some amentities include a continental breakfast-wireless internet-parking-in room refrigerators-free local calls-iron and ironingboard-blowdryers and more. . Our management is understandably proud of our facility as we aim for big hotel refinements but at prices that rival discount motels. And our caring staff will treat you like family.That is why we say University Inn offers all the comforts of home ... and then some.

Traffic in Lexington is terrible. I'd suggest booking a hotel as close to where you're going as possible so can just walk!

Excellent, affordable, centrally located hotel

I was more than satisfied with this hotel and very impressed with its continental breakfast. I ate there almost every morning. The room was fairly quiet (I was in 102, in the building to the right, which was near the elevator and an outside door that slammed), but that took a back seat to the good things. My sisters who live in Lexington said that they will recommend it to other visiting relatives. My only complaint was that they provided no hair conditioner (shampoo had conditioner in it, which was not enough for my unruly hair).

Dining tip: In Hotel

You can eat a big breakfast around 10:00, which is the latest they serve the breakfast, and make it last until dinner time. That way, you only have to buy one meal a day!

Find another place

We needed a refrigerator. That was #1. Advertised refrig. The refrig that was there had a sign in it "not a refrigerator temp is 50". The halls had an order, the bathtub was dirty, the breakfast was awful, hard boiled eggs that were old, pastry that was bad even the coffee tasted like warm water. Will not stay here agsin

Close to UK Medical Center

Hotel was OK..We were in the second building. There was a funny smell in the hallways and the room. Beds were good..Breakfast was rather plain.

Short visit

We visited Lexington for just one night and were attending a concert. We were in the room really just to sleep. Nothing was extraordinary about our experience. One thing to note is that we were charged $5 for a roll away bed that we had specified we needed when booking online. I don't think there was ever any fine print that said this, but I could have missed it.

Great Location for Football Fans

I was really impress with this hotel. I was worried since it was a little older that it would be old and moldy. Wow it was like a new hotel!! Great Location for tailgaiting and short walk to UK football stadium. I will definitely stay here again !!!
