Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked here because were were meeting friends who were traveling with a dog. When they arrived they found out the charge for the dog was going to be $100. They did some quick calling around and found two other hotels of a similar class (or better) that would only charge 1/3 to 1/2 as much. When they told the assistant manager this, he said he could waive the cancellation fee but not the pet service fee so our friends went to the other hotel. The way this was handled seems ridiculous. Springfield Suites lost a customer. Probably forever. If they could waive one fee, why not the other? We did not know what had happened until after we checked in or we would have canceled as well. When we followed up with the assistant manager later, he was more concerned with explaining why the fee needed to be charged than with acknowledging that this could have been handled better. We liked the room as it was clean and comfortable. The mobile key worked well so we could minimize contact during this pandemic. However, we were extremely disappointed in the breakfast. We realized that there would be no buffet but we were provided with a paper bag with a Nutrigrain bar, a banana and a bottle of water. Ridiculous! For a hotel of this class, charging the rates it does, that is unacceptable. If a true breakfast could not be offered than a discount on the room or points credit should have been given. Despite the fact that the room is fine, we will not book here again and Spring Hill Suites did not impress us. There are too many other hotels in Lexington that offer better customer service and amenities than here.

Cleanest hotel I've ever been in. Good location - close to everything. I really liked the built in USB ports on the bedside lamps & desk. Breakfast food was good. Parking lot was well lit and safe. The beds and pillow were cozy. There was some occasional noise in the hallway (kids) and out in the parking lot (people talking), but I found if I turned the thermostat fan on, I could not hear any of that. The pool was small, so if you want to swim laps, you need to swim in a circle around the pool - the water was just the right temp for swimming and pool was clean. The staff was very helpful in giving directions to other locations and there were plenty of places to dine nearby. They also had a small selection of entrees for purchase in their snack store to make in your room kitchenette. I would definitely stay there again next time I am in the area.

I stayed in a 2 queen suite for 1 night while on a campus tour of the University of Kentucky. This hotel is very close to campus and downtown. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. The thermostat allows for fan to be in the on position, which I prefer to keep it from going on/off all night. The hotel was quiet, however there is a train close by and could hear the horn. Only complaint about the room was the shower water pressure was poor.

Breakfast was typical Spring Hill Suites. Love the fresh strawberries.

Would definitely stay here again if the need arises.

We are Bonvoy Marriot members so we opt for their hotels. This hotel was our second choice but I am glad we stayed here. It’s a few blocks from Downtown but outside the hustle and bustle. Ample parking and walking distance to a few restaurants. Starbucks across the street. The hotel was nice for the level brand of SpringHill Suites. Furnishing were modern and fun. Bed was comfortable and water pressure good. It was neat to have a few of the Red Mile Racetrack from our room. It was also convenient to have a sofa and kitchenette. Convenient for take out. The complimentary breakfast was your standard hotel buffet breakfast with hot coffee, eggs, meat, cereal, bagels, etc. See pics.

Between barking dogs in this (surprise!) dog-friendly hotel and the 6 a.m. long-lasting train noise, it was hard to log a good night's sleep. The staff was friendly. The location (tucked between a strip mall and Red Mile) is peculiar but is convenient to downtown.

Room smells musty, hallway has a different weird smell, trash cans in driveway overflowing, rust on bath fixtures. Needs a good deep cleaning or refresh. Room is good sized and well-equipped and the location is okay.

This was a nice visit for me and my son. He was going for a tour of University of Kentucky. Ms. Jeannette, Ms. Stella and Ms. Shakira were really nice people who answered my questions and were very patient and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. I will stay there when I visit if he decides that school is for him and we get scholarships. 😏

Overall the hotel is clean, and comfortable. What you would expect of a Marriot hotel. Comfortable beds, Continental breakfast. No complaints there. However, We were traveling with three 13 year old boys. They were so excited to swim. But the pool is the smallest indoor pool I've ever seen at a hotel 🤣 It was so small. Perfect for little kids I guess. But our boys felt crowded in it. So I guess if you don't have plans to enjoy the indoor pool, this hotel is great. We probably won't be back though

This is a great hotel in Lexington, Ky. I was in town for business and also attended a UK basketball game. The Assistant GM (Alexis Signore) was one of the most pleasant and helpful Marriott employees that I have met during my travels as a Bonvoy Titanium Elite traveler. I highly recommend this property.

This hotel was awesome! The room was very nice, and breakfast was great. There was on employee named Madelon. Her service was AMAZING. She had positive energy that lifted everyone’s mood! Madelon was telling jokes and stories at breakfast. She gave us some water without us asking, and gifted our younger daughter some toys. Her personality was unique and amazing.
We really appreciate her bubbly and fun attitude!

We are located 1 mile from Rupp Arena, which is in the heart of downtown Lexington. Depending on weather conditions, it is definitely walkable. If not, our desk clerks will be more than happy to arrange transportation. Thanks for considering us!
