A little off the beaten path but overall, not bad. The only person I dealt with during my one night stay was very friendly. A good place to get some rest while passing through. I didn't stop in the lobby for their breakfast. It appeared to be a very simple setup for breakfast.

For $50 a night, you can't expect luxury, but you can expect this place to be clean and updated. The fact that there were no carpet was great. The beds were comfy and I had no issues with the temperature. If you want a breakfast, stay somewhere that has more traffic. This hotel is not right off the interstate, so...

Our room with a king size bed appeared to be recently totally redone with a very nice bathroom. It was very clean and had a microwave and small refrigerator which we didn't get to use. The price was fantastic!

I can't really understand the previous reviewers concerns, as considering the price and the proximity to Lexington itself, this place is a pretty good deal! The decor is quite old fashioned, as is the bathroom- but I don't really know how that is a problem and gives the place a certain charm. The beds were clean and comfortable, the bathroom...

Paid $50 for the night so didn't expect too much. Wasn't disappointed with the room. Air Conditioner worked, beds were clean as well as floors. The Wifi worked. There was a microwave and refer but didn't use them. The bathroom was ancient and I wouldn't use the shower. Management was polite and helpful. Their rooms are undergoing a facelift, ours...

I got off the exit and I actually could find only the Hampton Inn that was listed on the Highway sign. After driving around I found this place. The check in was quite an adventure as I did not understand a single word he said. The room was filthy, and the inside wall and the inside of the door looked...

Booked rooms for an overnight pit stop on our way south. The check in experience was truly, truly bizarre. One of the rooms had only 2 channels. "Breakfast" was white bread, mini muffins, and coffee. But the coffee was decent. And the refrigerators were big. Mere hours after check out, we were called and told that we never arrived at...

Tiny room, TV did NOT work, the manager was evil and he would NOT provide adequate toilet paper or towels. "FREE CONTINENTAL breakfast consisted of wheat bread and fake orange juice. It was disgusting and an abject waste of money at $73/night plus tax!!

We stayed here one night. Bed was clean but bathroom was awful. Rooms were very musty and the window was so dirty you could not see out. If you have a choice as we did not go anywhere else.LClean but drains in tub and sink were so slow they took hours to drain. Staff friendly but not keeping up with...
