Location is great for University Of Ky. events, less so for interstate travelers. It was clean and modern. The collegiate location was less than peaceful, though. Comfortable, with a nice staff and good breakfast. Good choice if you want to be near campus.

Hi Yvette! Unfortunately, this location does not have an airport shuttle. However, taking a taxi or uber from the Bluegrass Airport shouldn't cost you any more than $10-$15. Thank you!
