4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I just love this hotel. The staff sets a calm pleasant atmosphere. They are engaging and helpful and professional. They set the bar very high that other hotels would be hard pressed to match. I had a LG box to be shipped and ran late for s flight. They took care of it We needed suggestions about the local area. They have tons of helpful information. Room service was quick and delicious choc cake in massive slices enjoyed by all I returned home and told a friend we I was and she said " Griffin Gate is one if her favorite hotels as well". Great stay. We will be. Back again next summer.

Beds were very comfortable, room was clean and the hotel grounds were very nice. It was close to the airport, and Kentucky horse park. We enjoyed our stay! Good at restaurant was just ok but there is Starbucks on premises.

Nice clean hotel spent the weekend with the wife didn't have to leave once between the restaurant the bar and the spa. Will definitely be back.

Terrible view moldy dirty building need power wash and repainted no mini bar or refrigerator.

We had a 5 inch centipede on our ceiling the first night.

The room location was horrible, the room itself was far from handicap accessible and the cleanliness was disgusting. I had left message for manager to get back to me on all my issues and it's been 2 days and I've heard nothing!

Hotel needs MAJOR room updates. Lobby etc are good. Room cleaning terrible. Staff good to excellent. Golf course okay but repair 100s of divots on some tee boxes, bare earth holes everywhere. Not truly a resort hotel. Is it a franchise hotel? I bet it is!

Everything was clean and the staff was really nice. It seemed that they were understaffed at the pool snack shop and since it was a holiday weekend they probably should have had an extra person working there. Overall everything was great and they were very accommodating.

Awesome Beds, linens, pillows - was like sleeping at home. Had a first floor room with a walk out patio right next to the pool. Gorgeous rooms with granite counters, love the bathroom light, clean. Service was amazing. Spa was beyond amazing. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

A great place to stay; enjoy, pretty, and a great Pub and staff (all). Yes, will be back next year for Horse Show thanks! Have wonderful year!

This was a great hotel and resort. Excellent facility, location, and atmosphere. One of the nicest places I 've stayed at in a long time. Definitely reccomend.

Great and in a safe location! Nice indoor pool as well.

STAFF was excellent,rooms were clean, FOOD was great @ JW's & room service. Had a great weekend,lost the game but the stay was great !

The hotel is well run and clean. It is conveniently located, not too far from the Horse Park and easily accessible to/from the highway. It was nice to have the golf clubs stored at the proshop just like a country club. The only negative is that there is a charge for internet access - not acceptable in this day and age.

We had the best room which included a bar and full suite. The room service was perfect and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the extras like the spa and golf course! Thanks for a wonderful time. Monique James.

They did not have a double room for us, so we had to sleep 3 in a king bed and 1 on a rollaway, + the crib. Made for a very crowded room and the bathroom was very small. However, the complex was very nice, personnel where very nice, pool was warm, hot tub large--no complaints there.

Nice hotel, great service, easy to find with ample parking.

Beautiful hotel, the rooms were clean and comfortable beds. The bathroom was very small. I had a room next to the atrium and it was very noisy every night until midnight. Also, they had some type of dog convention going on and dogs barked during the night.

We went to Lexington to visit the Horse Park. The hotel was within 5 minutes from the Park. The hotel was surprisingly affordable as to the amenities that were offered. Clean and comfortable rooms and a super breakfast buffet was included. The rooms weren't very sound proof. I heard someone in the room next to us using the toilet in the middle of the night.

I came on business and brought my husband along for us to enjoy a mini get-away. Our room was so comfortable! The Staff were exceptional. It was great!
