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.

I made sure to video the room upon checking out. So no deposit would be kept unknowingly. Upon receiving alerts on my credit card..the hotel has 3 pending charges on my credit card for the same amount. I have a check out receipt. I'm in the process of ( waiting for the actual charged about to post.) I didn't have this problem with CHOICE hotels. Will keep all informed as to the outcome....

A few things derailed a higher rating; First, there was some small debris on the floor that the vacuum missed (crumbs, wrappers). Secondly, the woman serving breakfast had ear buds plugged into her personal cell phone and was talking loudly and incessantly whenever she was not speaking directly to guests. When I returned to my room at the far end of the ground floor, I could still hear her talking. Granted, it is probably more difficult than ever, in light of the (manufactured) Covid economic downturn, to find good front line people, but this is a management and training issue and the blame lies with her supervisors who do not correct such unprofessional (and just plain ignorant) behavior. The rooms themselves are not the least bit soundproof. You could hear the people in adjoining rooms talking, and footsteps from the floor above. Every door slam was audible. Aside from those glitches, the gentleman working the front desk made an extra effort to have my room ready for early check in and was very friendly, helpful and professional. The room was spacious and the bathroom was bright and clean. I chose this hotel because of the very positive ratings on Tripadvisor. My expectations, having been raised by those reviews, we’re not met. I would try a competitor if I were to stay in the area again.

My wife and I stayed here with our bicycles to do some riding and attend an evening show at the Burl, which is very nearby. Very clean and nice hotel with exceptionally friendly staff at the front desk. Breakfast during COVID time was handled nicely as a grab and go with a menu of hot items available. We think this can be our new go-to place for future visits to Lexington area. Well done!!

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.
