A typical well done Red Roof. Room was updated. Get the side of the hotel away from the road for assured quiet. Nice, helpful staff. Quick, accurate reservation. Many nearby restaurants. Close to a major mall.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It always pleases me when I hear the positive experiences from our guests. Many of our guests compliment us on our location. We are conveniently located to many area restaurants, shopping centers, major hospitals, the University of Kentucky, as well as Downtown Lexington. We love taking care of our guests...

The hubby and our girls stayed here for one night while passing through. The front desk clerk who checked us in just before midnight was kind. There were some cleanliness issues but nothing we couldn't handle. Only two sets of towels for a family of four which became an issue during our morning routines but overall not the worst place...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I value your feedback and I will be taking time to address your concerns.

We heard sirens most of the night. Only one set of towels were available and they were not clean. But the staff was extremely nice and provided fresh clean towels. Previous occupant left a tourist shirt they purchased in the room. Looks like it may have fallen off the chair onto the floor, but the cleaning staff should have found...

I am truly sorry that we you did not have a good experience. The housekeeper should have discovered an item left in the room. I apologize for any inconvenience you had because the right number of towels were left in the room. It is my hope that you will give us another chance to better serve you in the near...

RedRoof Inn's by default are usually great deals for quick, inexpensive stays. This hotel met that expectation. However failed at most everything else. Riddled with suspected drug activity outside, the rooms smell of smoke-although it's a smoke free hotel. I left the door open to cool the room but people congregate out side smoking so the room quickly smells of...

I was here for one night with my family. I took out my ring over night on the TV table then we had to leave early in the morning so I completely forgot to take it back on my finger before we left. In the afternoon of that day, I finally realized I forgot to take my ring, so I...

Everything inside my room was as expected, but there were a few issues with the rest of the property. For one, there was only one person on staff behind the counter for check in and she was getting slammed when I walked in. The ice vending machine on my floor was out of order and the elevator smelled like a...

I'm truly sorry for the trouble you experienced during your stay. I will look into the issues you addressed. Unfortunatley, it is very hard to make a left turn on to Highway 27. However, if you go through the adjoining business parking lot there is a stop light which will allow you to turn left. It is our hope that...

Paid extra for a delux room. It was nasty. Stains, burn joles and trash. Only stayed here because of other hotel being booked. I understand you get what you pay for but a room should never be dirty. That's unsanitary.

I am truly disappointed that we did not deliver for you during your stay. You are 100% correct. Clean rooms should be the basic standard for any establishment and I'm truly sorry that we did not deliver on this promise. You can reach me at the contact information below. I would love to have the opportunity to make this right...

My husband and I booked a three-night stay here because we were in town for a funeral. We almost always choose a Red Roof Inn as we travel with our mini-poodle.

It was adequate, clean, fairly priced, though far off I-75. A hair dryer and coffee in the room would have been hits. The motel was very close to a Red Lobster and a K-Mart, however long that may remain open.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I wanted to let you know about our Superior King. These rooms have hairdryers, inn room coffee, irons, and ironing boards. For a small additional fee you can upgrade to this room type instead of our standard room. You are correct, we are several miles from I-75, but we are...
