Howard Johnson - Lexington

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Comfortable and clean. Good choices for breakfast. I would stay here again.

The Howard Johnson is very nice when you just want a clean, comfortable place to spend a night or two. It's nothing opulent or luxurious, but it is clean and comfortable and entirely sufficient..

have stayed there before,nice motel.lots of places to eat and shopping close by.

Clean room. Beds were a little more stiff then I prefer. Fridge was not turned on so I had to wait before I could place food inside.

The floors on the rooms were dirty. Bathrooms had lint in the corners on the floor. Towels were scratchy. Food in the morning was fair but bad coffee.

Typical cheap motel type hotel. My fault for trying to save money. Should've turned around when I pulled in and all the lights were out. Looked as if people were living there as well. Carpet stained and bed hard as a rock. Didn't stay for breakfast for fear of what it might be like.

This was definitely not worth the money. It was a remodeled Best Western but some things were definitely old. The carpet in our room had a ton of stains, and it had a strange, musty odor. The bathroom looked old and dingy and the light above the sink did not work at all. The TV had a huge spot in the middle of the screen as well. The occupant in the next room left a dog alone for several hours, that kept on barking, but the front desk said they couldn't do anything about it. Next time I will stay in a hotel that does not allow pets.

We only stayed one night traveling back home. The check in/ check out was seamless. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, and decor was nice. I will stay there again.

We took an overnight trip and out was ok. Not sure if w would stay there again. Or tell anyone else to either.

Clean, comfortable, and friendly staff. Convenient location and liked the open door to outside though some may see this as a security issue...

Liked the cleaning lady and maintenance man. They took care of us. Had to make too many trips to office because of problems.

Needed a hotel on the way home a long trip and this suited us well. Clean and quiet.

We stayed in Lexington Kentucky for a surgery at the VA Medical Center and have stayed here before which when we need to stay in Lexington this will be our hotel/motel of choice

My stay was very nice. The manager at the front desk made the visit. Could not have been more friendly and outgoing. He was the face of the hotel and he made the visit. He was on duty when we got in at 7pm.

Room was great and clean. A big plus.. Continental breakfast, nothing too fancy.. Overall, I'd stay here again and recommend it to others.. Good value for the money...

Hotel was nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast was beyond amazing!!!

Hotel was recently refurbished. Clean rooms and decent beds. Very good breakfast. Lobby was nice. Girls enjoyed hot tub. Great value for price. Would definitely stay again

Stayed here for sons baseball tournament and rained the whole time.hotel was fine looked like rooms had recently been updated bed was like a rock and toilet broke.front staff was accommodating with a toothbrush need check in was painfully slow until manager stepped in was told had a first floor room but was put in 2nd floor room with no directions to where room was

I just needed a place to crash for the night. It was perfect for that purpose: inexpensive fairly clean decent shower.

It was as good as I could expect for the money. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms smelled musty. The wifi wouldn't connect the first night and was in and out the second night. Didn't use the pool or spa. The location was easy to get on two Interstates and a straight shot to downtown Lexington.
