Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lexington Dtwn Area-Keenland
Ranked #15 of 71 Hotels in Lexington
Reviewed 11 October 2017

This is a newer HIE (a couple of years old if I had to guess). Check in was easy and we were welcomed with a couple of bottles of cold water, which was appreciated. Wonderful, helpful people behind the front desk who recommended restaurants. The room was large, clean and the shower had a high shower head (even for tall people like my 6’4” husband) with great water pressure. They had freshly baked cookies and an assortment of daily snacks (nuts, candy, chips) in the late afternoon. Plus they had a manager’s welcome appetizer hour with meatballs, crudités, chips, potato and green salad, soft drinks and beer for $1 one evening. They no longer were able to give beer away, so they charged each beer to your room. My only negative comment is that there was only 1 chair in the room, a desk chair would have been so nice in addition to the comfy chair. Because this is a newer hotel, great Southern hospitality, wonderful people behind the front desk, manager’s welcome appetizer hour and snacks, I would say that this is the best HIE that we’ve ever stayed at. I would give it more than 5 stars if given the opportunity.

Great location per my destination in Lexington.
Front desk personnel was wonderful and the snacks provided at night were awesome! Breakfast was more than adequate with many choices! Had never seen a pancake maker but was afraid to try it!
Thank you.

Room Tip: Make sure you find the curtain to close the shades at night! Parking lot is bright!

This Inn is conveniently located near an Applebee's restaurant and a Shell gas station and just off the New Circle Road, which makes it easy to travel elsewhere in the Lexington area or to the Interstates leaving the area. The Inn has an ample breakfast eating area. Checking in and out was a breeze. The room was pretty much standard Holiday Inn Express, meaning very good.

Large quiet room, well appointed, near University of Kentucky and easy access to interstate travel including the Ark Encounter. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous--especially the breakfast staff. Great breakfast in a living room atmosphere.

We checked in promptly since we reserved a room online. The lobby was attractive and the desk associates were welcoming and friendly. Were given a couple bottles of water that were appreciated. Our room was neat and clean and the bathroom spotless. Toiletries and towels were plentiful. The next morning’s breakfast and hot coffee were wonderful.
