“nice enough for value”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

First, I want to say that the staff was extremely warm and the entire facility immaculate. My biggest complaints are with the room set up. We try to get "suites" when traveling with kids to make sure we have enough space for the teens and that those who get up early don't bother the late sleepers. This room's bathroom is in the middle of the bedroom area. You can't shield the lights from the sink area from those sleeping in the beds. Also there is no dresser in the room, only 2 closets. As others have commented, the pool picture on the website is misleading. There is actually a sign stating "no more than five people in the pool at any time." Breakfast was fine, nothing too fancy, but nice selection of hot and cold foods. Exercise equiptment has TVs attached to them, so each person can watch what they want--this room was always busy between 7 and 8 am. I was told I had a view of The Red Mile, but my view was totally obstructd by trees. I am glad I didn't pay for the upgraded room with the "better" view. The hotel wasn't far from downtown (less than a mile from many historical sites, attractions and great dining options) but you wouldn't want to walk. You can't ever make a left turn out of the lot. I might return with only my spouse, not with the kids.

Room Tip: check view before accepting room

I LOVED this hotel! The rooms were amazing: very large, with ample room around the beds, a separate 'foyer' area with a coffee bar area that was about 5-6 feet long, and a large bathroom.

The beds were extremely comfortable!!! I sank right in and they had the best pillows.

The breakfast was hot and delicious, as was the coffee.

It was hard to imagine that behind that abandoned gas station was this amazing hotel. Don't let that put you off, its worth it inside.

It's Marriott's Motel product and as such Springhill Suites is nothing to write home about in terms of luxury or added extras: breakfast is strictly plastic cutlery and polystyrene plates; rooms lack even a mini safe let alone a mini bar. That said, this version of the product acquits itself very well with spotless rooms, helpful staff on reception, and reasonably priced accommodation - especially if you choose to multiple occupy your room using the sofa bed provided. It's not the Ritz, but it serves it's purpose well.

Stayed here for 3 nights for a family high school graduation. Rooms are spacious, with lots of closet space and a wet bar/fridge in room. Large bathroom, very clean. Pool area is small, but still nice- they kept it open later so teenagers could swim. Hot tub nice, but water was tepid. Breakfast has a nice selection of both hot & cold foods as well as fresh muffins and fruit. Good location, was near the places we needed to be. Would stay again if back down in the area.

Room Tip: We did request a 1st floor room due to my mom being with us, but there are elevators.

I had a wonderful visit staying at this property. If you are driving it's back from the road and hidden behind a mexican restaurant, but has a tall sign to prompt you to turn from Broadway. The staff was very accomodating. My room had a faulty air conditioning. I contacted the front desk and within minutes a clerk came to my room and delivered a new room key and helped me relocate to another room. Great personal service. I wish I had gotten her name. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed are stay! The buffet was quite crowded as a school group was present, but the buffet staff kept the food coming. Also, if you are driving be careful turning left on to Broadway when leaving the property. The traffic coming from downtown comes from a curve at a fast pace.

I had a 2 bed suite holding 5 people. Plenty of closet space, frig, sink, couch, microwave and desk. The housekeeping team was great and the location from UK was awesome. Not far from shopping or downtown.

We stop at the Springhill Suites in Lexington as we drive through to Ohio from Florida. The rooms here are very nice. The ones we typically stay in are King size suites and it has a pull out sofa & mini fridge. We choose this location as it is close to a bar we like (Al's Bar) that has great local food & bourbon. The hotel is in a pretty part of town & far enough away from the interstate that it is nice & quiet, yet still conveniently located. They also have free hot breakfast in the mornings! I highly recommend staying here! Have done it twice and will do it again!

Room Tip: We chose a king suite and were very happy. No particular location- the whole area is quiet

Green Features: We only stayed one night, so can't really answer this question
