We were here for our anniversary weekend and they had construction going on could not even hear our television so we had to go find something to do. I was trying to relax so my back would stop hurting but that was out of question

Don't let the "chain name" & good rates trick you into staying here. Hotel seems to be the meeting spot for all the scums, drug dealers,and hookers! The rooms are musky and outdated. Our room was a non smoking room but looked & smelled like a smokers room. Bedding was full of burn holes, room smelled of smoke, no toiletries...

Room was decent, beds were nice, better then most motel6. Great customer service. Quiet, good place to stay if you need a place in Lexington ky. to stay. Restaurant everywhere in walking distance as well as gas stations.

For a real bargain of a price, this place has plenty. The rooms are somewhat out of date on style and decor but it still is warm, has nice warm water, and clean sheets/towels. Nothing real bad to say about this place, I'm sure in warmer times the pool would be a nice option to enjoy.

We used this for a quick 2 night getaway, but we spent most of our time with friends away from the motel. Staff was friendly, room was clean except for some scuffed up furniture. Beds were comfortable for the price, and the AC worked well. There is no breakfast, but there are vending machines, but they weren't very stocked. No...

Asked the desk clerk if it was a safe area and he said "yes, we work collaborativley with the police. We pulled up in front of our door and the old clunky cars that pulled up...

Non-smoking room smelled musty. Multiple burn marks in the bed spread indicated perhaps not always a non-smoking room. Multiple stains on the carpet. Poor water pressure in the sink. Antiquated tv, no tissues in the rooms. Everthing had a very "run-down but with a fresh coat of paint to cover-it up" feel to it. Was concerned about no "Do Not...

This place is beyond help. The rooms, which were "non-smoking" reeked of cigarette smoke. There were burn marks on the bathtub and on both bedspreads. The beds had no support, were ripped,. The rugs were very worn and dirty. Exterior had cobwebs, termites on the stairs, broken cement on the walkways, cigarette butts all over the place. The only thing...

We arrived early (12:30) and were told we couldn't get in a room until 3:00 or 4:00. We asked if we could pay then and come back at 3:00 and were told, no,...

We had been driving for 14 hours and after trying a couple of other hotels, and no luck on availability because of a college football game , had no choice but to take the available room.
