I picked this place because of the price, proximity to my daughter's summer apartment, and rating. Pricing on Expedia was pretty good--about $50/night plus taxes.
Based on some of the reviews here, I wasn't expecting much, what with horror stories of burnt holes in carpets and soiled sheets. But I was very much impressed by the quality of the particular room I was given. Clean, relatively recent renovations, nice carpet, nice bathroom, decent bed. There WAS a trace of cigarette smell in the hallway, but the room itself was totally odor-free, and the A/C worked great. Decent TV picture quality, too, though the set was a tube.
This is the first night of a 3-night stay, but I wanted to write this because the reality (at least in my case) was quite different from some of the reviews here. I wonder if there is a lot of bad-mouthing between competitors going on in Lexington?
Now it's day 3. Found out from one of the managers a couple of useful bits of information. First, the carpet is going to be replaced in July 2010 throughout the entire property. This is really the only appearance issue I had during my stay. Secondly, that cigarette odor in the hallway? He said the hotel was going smoke-free this summer. So that takes care of that. Continental breakfast nothing to write home about; coffee, juice, cold cereals and cheap plastic-wrapped sticky buns.
I hadn't realized that the hotel shared the use of an olympic-sized pool at the hotel across the parking lot. Should have packed my swimwear.
Now I guess the question is how much the rates will increase. If they stay the same, I'd see this as a terrific bargain for the next few years if you're visiting Lexington. I've boosted my ratings accordingly.
