Stayed here Friday and Saturday to celebrate our anniversary. It's an older hotel but seems well maintained. Rooms are small because they're older but they're clean. We were disappointed that our room didn't have a refrigerator. It looked like there was space for one in the dresser but there wasn't one there. When we checked in, the person at the...

Room booked for a conference. The room itself was just fine. The beds here are actually VERY comfortable. However, there was some confusion about the room and the payment through the conference I attended and it took over three business days to get a refund for the room charges. Yikes.

I stayed at the resort for business. I realized a couple of days after I was home that I could not find my Beats wireless headphones. I called on a Saturday, was immediately connected with lost and found and they located my headphones. I followed up and they sent them out to me free of charge. I had no hope...

The hotel overall has a lot to offer, a Starbucks in the lobby, a spa, a nice restaurant in the lobby, lots of space, a pool and hot tub (although not very clean or well kept), lots of outdoor space, golf, well situated in Lexington (not too long of a drive to most places).

We were guests for 3 nights.

I spent a good deal of time in Lexington on business and stayed at many area hotels. The Griffin Gate was by far, my favorite. The facility, staff and rooms are great. The gym is a good size. The golf course was also a lot of fun. Great place for business or pleasure.

Husband and I stayed for one night for a wedding. This is a very nice property, though a little outdated. The room was very long and while it was nice to have the extra room near the window, the TV stand/dresser was very clunky and didn't leave a whole lot of space to walk between it and the bed. I...
