We enjoyed our stay so much. The beds were awesome and the front desk personnel were really nice! It was close to UK campus and near a lot of great eating places. The pool and hot tub was a added nice touch!

Our room was really clean and bright, the beds comfortable, very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast could use some more healthy options. I tried the decaf coffee, which was unfortunately a disappointment - tasted more like lukewarm acid. Overall we were very satisfied.

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!
