Extended Stay America - Lexington - Tates Creek

Not too shabby...

Interior is a little dated, but it was a decent place for a 12 day visit. We had a fully equipped kitchen should we have needed it, stove with an oven included, full size fridge/freezer, etc. All the basics you'd need for a couple weeks are here.

Ramada Lexington North Hotel and Conference Center

Hotel Really Tries

This hotel really tries their best with what they're working with. The lobby area is really inviting. Joshua at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming. The room was a good size with spacious lay out. Cleanliness could use some work but I've seen much worse. Free breakfast buffet was outstanding. Huge variety of foods and large eating area. Outside area of hotel was a little sketchy. Couldn't really tell who was an employee, a guest or just hanging out. Hotel is dated but I do feel they make up for it in other ways. For the price I paid I would stay at this hotel again.
