Hotel suggestion for campus visit to Univ of KY

Looking for hotel suggestions for an upcoming campus tour of University of KY.

Is there a hotel on campus, or within walking distance to campus? Any local food places that are a must? Thank you!

There is not a hotel right on campus but there are a few that are in walking distance. The two that come to mind are Holiday inn express-university and the University inn.

There are a few restaurants within walking distance to your hotel. DQ and Sonic are in the same parking lot. Right around the corner is Gumbo yaya, BW3, penn station, and a sushi place.

Gumbo Yaya is one we want to try. We like to try the local places, but DQ is always good for dessert :-)
