SpringHill Suites Lexington Near the University of Kentucky
Ranked #36 of 71 Hotels in Lexington
Reviewed 26 September 2013

the internet service is extraordinarily slow. Last week, I stayed here for four days, and I'm staying here again for a night. My company has a pre-negotiated price, so I'm limited where I can stay when I'm in town. Every night I've stayed here was marred with painfully slow internet access, including today. I've spoken to the front desk, but nothing has improved. Overall, the hotel is nicely decorated, the breakfast is good, and the staff is polite, but it's like using a dial up modem to do anything on the web. If the internet was better, I would have given it a higher rating.

Location was not as expected...had to drive a considerable distance to find someplace to eat besides a small Mexican food place in the parking lot. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly, and the room was satisfactory....the air conditioner the room was kind of annoying as it sounded like an airplane landing in distress, but tried to ignore that. Just an "OK" for this room.

Room Tip: Plan on food delivery or driving a while...

This hotel is your typical SpringHill Suites; a good size bed area plus a sitting area, comfortable beds, sink outside the toilet/shower (this is important with the family), and free breakfast buffet. Overall, the hotel is well located if you are visiting UK or anywhere in downtown Lexington. The hotel seems fairly recently renovated, the place is clean, and my room was very nice. Also, the exercise room met my needs, the hotel is quiet, the staff was nice enough, and I had zero complaints. This is not a 5 star hotel, but it is a very good value for the money and I will definitely stay here again.

Have stayed in multiple Marriott properties over the past week and this by far was the most disappointing. Poor room layout. "King Size" room with a bed that is anything but - probably a queen. Poor television placement and mobility. And worst off it is 3 am and I am unable to get the room to cool off - set at lowest temp but still extremely hot. To managements defense I have not contacted them as I don't want to wake our child - but expected much more for the price and less than optimal location. Will not be returning.

There is nothing really bad about this property. The front desk personnel was friendly and helpful. Parts of it, such as the lobby, appear to have had a facelift. But the outside appears run-down and the room was awkward and not as clean as I would like. It was shaped strangely so moving around was tight and we had to move the T.V. to see it from the beds. The towels were tattered, thin and stringy. Breakfast was typical for this type of property but a little weak. Too use horse vernacular, since everything in Lexington is about horses, it seems like it was rode hard and put away wet.

Stayed here for 5 nights to attend a family function. Got a very early check in from the front desk. Sweet!! Rooms are a bit smaller than other Springhill Suites I've stayed in but beds just as comfy. Nice breakfast area kept well stocked. Busy hotel, behind a Mexican restaurant , around the parking lot...they tell you to "turn at the waffle house" and there you are! Fresh water bottle of water (although only 8oz.) in the room was a plus. Good TV cable selection. Nice size TV. They sometimes have front desk staff who don't usually work at that location and have trouble with directions and suggestions but it's not a big problem. Good stay and would stay again.

SpringHill is one of those very standardized chains which tends to be much newer than other similar chains, and this one is exactly that. Front desk staff was helpful, though they were understaffed for a rush of evening arrivals and people needing help of various kinds. Parking lot is sort of a pain to get in and out of off a busy road and really not too much within an easy walk (especially since I wouldn't want to cross that road on foot). The flip side of that is that it's just minutes from downtown and the university area. Construction nearby right now so things were a little dusty in the parking lot, this summer probably should park away from the work area.
