Hotel's Favourite

Hotel is very hard to find. It’s near US-421 but off a side street which leads into a giant strip mall. I eventually found it- next to a car wash.

In the lobby, my status was recognized by the front desk as well as on a white board. That was nice.

Room was clean and quiet. Good night’s sleep. Unfortunately the water pressure in the shower was week. The pool was very relaxing and needed after a long drive.

Breakfast was typical HIE.

It’s not far to downtown Lexington, however the road in is very narrow and congested. You can’t blame the hotel for that though.

We hadn't planned on staying at this hotel, but we were glad we did! Our room at the Towneplace Suites in the same area of town had to be canceled due to burst water pipes. That hotel's assistant manager set us up with the same type of room and same rate at the Holiday Inn Express. We had a very spacious studio king room with a pull-out couch. The bed was very comfortable - on the firm side, but I like that. Everything in the hotel was extremely clean and it was obvious they were following Covid protocols. There were even little wipes on the remote and phone to clean them off before using. We didn't eat the breakfast, but it smelled delicious - it seemed like it was a hot breakfast that you would get in a tray/bag and then take to your room.

One small complaint would be that it was hard to get the room to cool down overnight. We were on the first floor and the ceilings were very high, so that may have had something to do with it. Not a huge problem but a bit annoying.

Overall, the hotel was very nicely decorated and attractive on the inside and outside. We would stay here again when we're in Lexington, especially if we can get a good rate.

We stayed Aug 25th for one night. Dee at the desk checked us in. She was extremely professional and helpful. All precautions for Covid were in use. Masks, hand sanitizer through the property, limited breakfast but option for hot food by menu, etc. Location extremely convenient for return to interstate and also to the legacy trail. Room was comfortable and quiet. Area appeared to be very safe.

Location: good, centrally located for most attractions

Cleanliness: great, so extremely clean you almost feel like you’re in a sterile environment

Service: okay, front desk staff not very friendly, nor is the breakfast staff

Food: good, coffee is hot and brewed perfectly, breakfast food was cold.

Atmosphere: Noisy, constantly hearing doors slamming, pounding of footsteps from room above.
A lot of money ($400-2 nights stay) to not get a good nights sleep at all.

We were very pleased that we ended up staying here for a couple nights while visiting Lexington. This hotel is very convenient to many of the places we wanted to see but not in the congestion of downtown Lexington. There are many places to eat within walking distance...we enjoyed the Firehouse Subs right across the street for one meal and then drove into Lexington to eat at the Columbia Steak House for the other...both were great. The king suites that we got were large, clean and very comfortable! There is a nice work area with internet connection via wifi or Ethernet cable and a comfortable sofa as well. The black out curtains worked great and we heard very little noise...and our room was even directly across the hall from the elevator. The hot complimentary breakfast was very good and the staff was very attentive and courteous. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again if we are in the area.

Our room and bathroom were very clean. We were on the top floor (3rd) and so no noise from above, but I do agree with others that the doors closing in the hall were loud. The breakfast was very good with many options. The staff were all very friendly. One thing, they only clean your room every three days unless you request them to clean the night before, so keep that in mind if you need clean towels or coffee pods replaced.

From the warm, friendly greeting to the delicious breakfast, to the professional checkout the staff and facilities were excellent. We chose this Holiday Inn Express hoping for a better breakfast than disappointing one we'd had a Fairfield Inn last October. There was a good variety of tasty options and the area was well organized and maintained; staff seemed to care. The cinnamon rolls were surprisingly good. We liked the way people were directed to form a line instead of the "scramble service" elsewhere. And we appreciate the use of "compostable" paperware instead of plastic. We appreciate posting "Quiet Hours" in the lobby. Our room WAS quiet and comfortable and clean. The room and bathroom offered everything we needed for a comfortable stay; tastefully designed and equipped with microwave and fridge. Most of all, in this era of poor service, all the staff we encountered were friendly, professional and seemed to care about customer service.

We just stayed at this property over the weekend with my daughter's soccer team. While the property is beautiful and the rooms are great I would not recommend blocking rooms here for any kind of large group. They had very strict quiet hour policies, were watching their cameras the entire evening and reporting everything our girls were doing. They entered one of the rooms at one point told the girls to call one of the parents and then asked for the phone from the child, who was 13, and started questioning the mom. The girls were in a room where could hear them and a parent had been in and out of through out the evening, they were not acting out in anyway or doing any damage to the room of any kind. They were accusing our girls of running in the halls and confronting us and making us walk to our rooms, where the girls they accused of doing this were in bed . When asked to see the video they were referring to of our children running in the halls they could not provide it. I have stayed at properties before with groups like this and have never experienced treatment like this. While the property was very nice they were not prepared to handle sports teams or any group with younger children. I would highly recommend not booking this hotel for any large groups!!

The staff was quite accommodating. The room was large and clean. Even though housekeeping did not come in every day, whenever we asked for something, our needs were met immediately. Also, there were quite a few restaurants within walking distance. We would would stay here again if we are ever in the area..

This is a very nice hotel. We use it a lot when traveling to Ohio. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfy. The bathrooms are a bit tired with tubs instead of the newer step-in showers and the toilets are very low to the ground. The front desk staff are always polite and very helpful. We ask for specifics when staying, and they are always so accommodating.

They don't have a hot tub, but the pool is open. You just have to sign in for a time to use it, as they are limiting people in the pool area.
