Seems like a lovely hotel but is under construction.

Place is under construction. They told me they didn’t have any king rooms and stuck me in a double room... I paid for king and balcony. They said sorry and asked if I’d still like to stay with them.

This place is a hot mess. Plenty of other better options in the area.

The hotel is currently under renovation to a much more modernization style. Best hotel in town

The room was nice, but didn’t have a fridge and microwave which would have been nice. Due to Covid no pool or hot tub. The tub was billed as a deep soaking tub, and although it was a better tub than the hotel average, it was not a soaking tub.

Friendly service. Clean room. Comfortable bed!! Followed Covid guidelines.

It looks deserted and somewhat unkept outside. When I drove up, I thought they had gone out of business.

Rude Nathan front desk. It's a resort be he doesn't want to tell you anything about it. You know the nice pics of rooms on Orbitz? Doesn't matter what you book because Nathan is going to give you any room he pleases. Then when you show your booking information he has an attitude. That was the first impression. Finally I got the room I booked and it is very dated with old furniture and a musty mold balcony. This place is like an old rusty ship that was probably really cool once but not now.....

Bourbon testing was good. Property is aging. Valet service was slow and absent on one occasion.

The service was great. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. The hotel was clean, and the spa was fantastic.

Property was clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly.

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.
