The location is on the campus of the University of KY. The UK hospital is close by and some campus housing, but the area was surprisingly quiet. The room offered a microwave and mini fridge, which were nice touches for the price. The beds are comfortable. The bathroom is nice, but the sink is very small with no counter space.... More

Pleasantly surprised ! Although the hotel was a little dated, I found it to be all that I needed. It was very quiet and calm. The room was clean and spacious with a little kitchenette. The bed was sooo comfy! The breakfast buffet was fine. The location was perfect since my brother was in Baptist Hospital less than a mile... More

Hotel is very nice and clean. Location is pretty far away form the interstates, but is within walking distance of UK campus and Hospital. Breakfast consists of bagels, toast, cereal, muffins, yogurt and fruit. No "hot items", FYI. Wifi seemed to be VERY slow and inconsistent. Would stay here again.

Stayed here for a professional development at the University of Kentucky. -clean room -well stocked -nice staff -sad (free) breakfast Located close to campus & the Mall area. I still had to drive to UK's campus for my PD, but I could have walked (but fear of rain would make me take an umbrella or rain gear).

You couldn't tell from the outside that this was nice hotel inside. Stayed here for a basketball tournament and was quite pleased with our stay. This hotel is located minutes from downtown and right in the thick of UK campus. The properties are separated into two buildings with the main building holding the front desk. Hotel was quiet and the... More

I was pleasantly surprised! My daughter and son-in-law stay there every time he is at UK for business. My daughter said the rooms were not fancy but clean. Well, the room was perfect to me. Upon entering, my room was noticeably clean and fresh. I was there alone to prep for surgery the next day. The hospital put me up... More

Rooms are clean and decent size, bedding OK. Baths are really small and minimal toiletries are provided. Provided breakfast is the most basic continental out there. No food service on site - and nothing close by. Only plus is it's location to U of K medical center - but that's also a disadvantage when the sirens come rolling in during... More
