Positive Reviews

Location is a winner!

It’s fair to say that you really are spoilt for choice in terms of shopping and eating when you stay here as there are a number of malls (including Fayette) very close by as well as all manner of dining options, many of which are within an easy walk. Needless to say, horse racing fans will love the hotel’s proximity to Keeneland!

Courteous staff members are full of endeavor

Warm, welcoming and keen to impress; the team here are the kind of people who go out of their way for you not because they’re expected to but because they want to. Front desk agents and housekeeping staff are particular stars!

There’s an elevator

And that’s a lot more than can be said for a lot other three-story hotel’s operating in this price range…

Negative Reviews

Water pressure isn’t so great

Many visitors have been left distinctly under-whelmed by the rather puny displays of water pressure they experienced while trying to have a shower. Something to keep in mind if you’re someone who needs a full-on jet blast when you wake up in the morning.

Area sometimes feels a little sketchy after dark

It has to be said that, at times, the area around this hotel can feel a little intimidating once the sun has gone down. Non-guests hanging around the car park and long-term residents throwing socials do little to improve matters.

Smoke free property...?

Numerous guests have drawn attention to the fact that many of the rooms here retain an unmistakable smoke-like odor, and have bed sheets with cigarette burn holes in. Despite this, the Red Roof Inn Lexington South maintains that its rooms are all 100% smoke-free. Hmmm…
