Feedback like this is what helps keep our award winning staff on top of their work. The award winning housekeeping staff would love to know that they are doing a great job keeping our rooms spotless. Its always good to hear praise when so much work and effort is put forth into making sure every single guest has an excellant stay. We try to keep our prices at a resonable one so that people can afford to stay here when they are travelling on the road. We hope that you had a chance to take advantage of everything that our hotel has to offer. Everything from the free wifi throughout the hotel, the indoor heated pool, the fittness room, and also our free hot buffet style breakfast we have every morning. Ask part of giving every guest that lexington feel if you didnt see the new award winning horse statue we have painted out front please take pictures in front of it as it make a great memorabilia. We look forward to seeing you in the future and hope that your next stay is just as wondefull as this one.

Have stayed at many Holiday Inns but this beats them all. Newer and lovely, spacious room (ask for a corner room), whole property is meticulously cared for. Staff very friendly, professional and hekpful. Hotel is in a great location - just off ring highway so easy to find. In a newer development with several restaurants and services. Only 5 min drive straightbdown the road to city downtown and easy accessbto all area attractions. Highly recommend.

Thank you for such kind words about our award winning Holiday Inn Express. As we are creeping up on the 4 year mark we try to stay and look as if we first opened. A lot of guest do enjoy the corner rooms as you listed in your compliment about our hotel. It is a standard room but being on the corner make it quieter and much more spacious than the rest. One of the best things in my opinion is the many eating places that are right out our front door. Everything from american food to mexican food and even frozen desert. Im glad to see that the location was also great for you as we are 10 minutes from I-75 and I-64; 2 miles from downtown, and 15 mins ether way to most of the shopping places in lexington. Next time you are in town please stop by and visit us and let our award winning staff take care of your accommodations. We look forward to seeing you in the future.

If you're looking for a great hotel on the outskirts of Lexington, this is a perfect choice.

Very comfortable, clean, large room and great soundproofing! Breakfast was superb - cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, fresh pancakes, pastries, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy - what more could you ask for?

Didn't use the pool it was a quick stop.

Thank you for stopping to stay with us during your trip from Tennessee to Maryland. Hopefully we made such an impresson that you will stop each time you make this trip or any other one where we are convienant for you to stay. Location as you mentioned are great for a lot of people. We are on the west side of lexington convenient to many locations. We are only 10 minutes to I-75 or I-64, 2 miles from downtown, and located next to roughly 7 great eating locations all withen walking distance from the hotel. I am also glad to see you take part and enjoy our award winning breakfast service. As you saw we have a very wide variety of things to eat. Many hot and cold items to satisfy your morning hunger. We know how important it is to have a great and fulfilling start to your morning so we try to help get that started. I'm sorry you did not get to use our pool. It is extremely wonderful this time of year. In door heated pool could be just the thing to help a long stressful day turn into a relaxing one. We look forward to hopefully seeing you in the future.

My job requires me to travel around the nation alot. I've seen some really bad ones. But this hotel has a very nice look and feel from outside and inside. The room was very clean and neat. I was very pleased with the breakfast area: clean and well organized. The rate I got was a steal for the service and friendliness I received. The staff were courteous and well informed. Two thumbs up to the staff and the manager...they knew how to do their job and do it well.

Thank you for such kind words about our hotel. We know that traveling on busienss keep a lot of guest away from home quite a bit of the time. When you come here to our award winning hotel we want you to feel at home the minute you pull up on our property. We take pride in keeping everything up to date and apealing to our guest. The house keeping staff is one of the biggest back bones of our hotel just because without a clean room then you will not have a great stay at all. Breakfast is the last place you see before you leave our lovely property and we want to leave you with a full stomach, a happy smile, and a very freindly fairwell. Our team of award winners are here to turn your stay from good to great! We try to work with each guest on rate by trying to honor discount rates and by giving local negoiated rates to different companys that each customer works for. The end goal at the end of the day is make sure you are not 90 percent satasfied and not even 99.9, but to make sure you are 100% satasfied with our hotel. Please come back to see us sir and we will try to deliver the best that we know how to each and every time. Have a great future and if anything else we can do please let us know.

I stayed at this hotel while I was on my business trip. This is the first time I stayed at this hotel because the one I stayed at was sold out. I am glad I came here because this is my new place to stay when I come to Lexington. The staff was AWESOME!!! Room spotless. Overall, everything was great at the hotel. Love the way they welcomed me with name on the board, since i am Gold PC member.

Thank you for such kind words. All comments will be forwarded on to all staff members to let them know that you were enthusiastic about their performance. What ever the case may be my team members and I are all glad you chose us to stay at during your time in the horse capital of the world, Lexington Kentucky. Also very excited about this being your new place to stay and hopefully we can live up to your expectations every time you are here. Our award winning house keeping staff are great at keeping the new hotel feel every time you walk into a room, because they take pride and making every guest happy. I see you noticed our Priority Club Recognition board for Platinum and Gold members. In the near future we hope to go digital with the board so that all Gold and Platinum elite members will have their name displayed across a 40 plus inch LCD screen. We know you worked hard for the status of Gold and we want you to know we appreciate you staying with our brand and with our hotel. We look forward to seeing you in the future.

This was by far the best stay I have ever experienced on an out of town trip. This is a very nice and very clean hotel. For the great price at which we stayed we did not expect the level of service and ammenities that we had received. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were bright. The location was very convenient to everything, which is a plus. The staff was very friendly and well informed. The lobby and the exterior were very well maintained and the attractive look to it all made the stay very pleasant indeed. We will be sure to stay here every time we go back to Lexington.

Room Tip: The rooms that have the big windows are nice and bright. You get a lot of good daylight without sac...

Thank you very much for your words of kindness. We appreciate you and every guest that stays with us and holds our hotel so very highly. Having a clean, uncluttered, and well kept lobby is one of the things we put first and for most . It is the first thing you see when you walk in the door so we want you to feel the presence of our Award winning staff right from the start. We also try to think of as many things as possible that would make the guest feel at home so that when they are here they can relax without any worries. Having a Refrigerator, Microwave, Iron, Ironing Boards, Blow Dryers, and 32 inch screen LG TVs in every room to make sure our guest have everything they need to be stress free. We also appreciate the comments about the level of service you got from the Holiday Inn Express. We put our level of Customer Service very high up as it and our wonderful guest are what made us 2 year running for 2010 and 2011 Torch Bearer Award Winners. If there is anything we can do for you in the future please do not hesitate to ask us. We would feel honored to have you back staying at our award property.

Parking free and not a problem.Stayed in Lex.once before at the Lexington Hotel and Convention Center downtown near Rupp this was a much better $$ value.Driving to downtown from here was maybe 5-10 minutes tops.No bar avaialble but not a problem their is an appleblees in the lot next door.Keeneland race course is nearby and a great day is always had there!! Close to freeeways and the Bourbon Trail is maybe 1/2 hour tops,also a good stop! Free breakfast isn't great but completely serviceable.Leaving to go home was also good because of the freeway being right there! Swimming pool also clean.Would try here again.

We always like to see another happy guest come from our Award Winning Holiday Inn Express. It warms me to know that guest like you are finding our hotel to be in a great location for many different opportunities. If you did not know also next to the Applebees right next door is many other selections for restaurants so that if you ever come back to see us, as we hope you will, you will have some variety. Zaxby's(Chicken) , Taco bell, Wendys, El Mariachi's(Mexican) , Happy Panda(Chinese), Orange Leaf (Frozen Yogurt), and Fire house subs are all just a few minutes walk away. I also see you took advantage of some of Lexington's top trills. Being so greatly placed in Lexington make our hotel a perfect spot to rest while quickly running over to Keeneland Race Coarse which is just about 5 miles away, Downtown which as mentioned roughly 5 minutes or so, The bourbon trail, and also all major highways are close such as I-64 and I-75. Please think of us on your next trip through to see your family in Lexington as guest like you are who made us 2010 and 2011 Torch Bearer Award Winners!
