It’s a nice hotel, the staff are really friendly and Liza is a gem if you get to meet with her! The gym is fantastic The treadmill has Bluetooth connectivity to headphones and watches I was able to watch stuff on YouTube on the treadmill which was nice

The sunset and sunrise views are on point I caught a glimpse of the sunrise but most definitely, you can’t miss the sunset from the parking lot of the hotel It’s also close to some nice restaurants and all in all, it’s a nice place to be

Samantha Saunders

We had a quick overnight stay while driving through Quick check in, clean The beds were comfortable but the hallways were loud

There was loud music outside in or near the parking lot after midnight so I put on my phone’s sound machine app The cracks around the door let a lot of sound and light through I was surprised the breakfast isn’t complimentary like comparable hotels I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to stay here

John Flynn

The location was fantastic for convenience, only reason for giving 4 stars instead of 5 was that I heard the traffic from a nearby major road quite a bit It didn’t bother me much and for me the convenience of nearby gas and restaurants far outweighed any road noise but thought it bared mentionBeyond that the hotel was modern and clean and the staff was friendly

Excellent hotel for my purposes and I will stay here again next time

My room here was very nice and I loved that there was no carpet on the floors The bed was very comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful I really appreciated that they had bottled water at the front desk

I was here for a conference and the food served during our meetings was very good I had the opportunity to use the spa and they were fantastic! One of the best massages I’ve ever had The only negative I had was there were a couple of paths that didn’t have handrails and one that wasn’t lit very well at night I would stay here again

Allison Timm

We stayed for a family wedding Room rate is way over priced There was a view of the room and there are hardly any drawers in the rooms to put clothes in

Bed sheets had holes in them My moms room was so dusty there was writing on the window My brothers room had left over hair in the tub They messed up the wedding block so we were not together The restaurant takes FOREVER no matter how big your party size is I understand being short staffed for wait times but the 2 days I got breakfast there my order was wrong and it had to be fixed Short staff doesn’t create an excuse for wrong orders The only thing I can say good about this hotel was a comfy bed, thank god there was Starbucks coffee, and free water in the lobby

Sarah Peterson

Enjoyed the room and the outdoor pool on our recent stay There was also a great bike trail across the road and the hotel provided bikes and helmets and had them ready for us But the best part was Laura who we encountered at the front desk

We were celebrating my 40th birthday and on our last night we returned to a super thoughtful card from staff and a slice of cake and wine Really meant a lot and this is why we always stay with Marriott! Thanks Laura!!

This is the second time I stayed in this hotel and because it was within a 2 week period, I was given a discount The room was clean and the king size bed was amazing The bathroom had been updated and the shower was wonderful

They offered a full hot breakfast, which was tasty The assistants were very friendly and helpful The only negative is the bathroom is smallI definitely will make this my go to hotel when traveling from Michigan to South Carolina


I 100% recommend this hotel! During our weekend trip to Lexington we originally booked a different hotel about 10 miles away from downtown, but when when we got there it ended up being a disaster I was recommended the Best Western Lexington Inn and they were able to get us a room within minutes and saved us from the nightmare hotel that we originally bookedDavid at the front desk is by far the sweetest and most helpful person I’ve ever associated with at a hotel, that man deserves a raise!The room was super clean, beds and pillows were very comfortable, and the bathroom came prepared with a lot of necessities just in case you forget something

The breakfast was top notch, and the location of the hotel is great no matter where in Lexington you’ll be heading toYou will not regret booking here! This will definitely be my #1 hotel choice in Lexington for any future Conventions I will be attending

Becky Staton

Very nice clean rooms and helpful staff! Nice breakfast with the best pancakes ever! I had booked a room at another hotel for the weekend and it was atrocious to say the least! It was after 10PM when we staggered into this hotel desperate for a room fearing the worst but the gentleman working the night shift was so kind and got us a room! He even let us see the room first because we had just had such an awful experience elsewhere We’ll definitely be staying here next time we are in town!

Hayden Newport

Where do I begin Was given incorrect directions as to where our room was located so we could use the most convenient door for entry It was on the opposite side of the hotel as we were instructed

Outdoor key pad at that door didn’t even work after we had moved our vehicle once we found out we were on opposite side Elevators were not clean Went to check out pool and the entry door to the pool area was unlocked (key access not needed must have been broken) which was a safety issue The hot tub wasn’t working, it was taped and blocked off with pool chairs And there was literally 6 towels on the towel rack The bar was not open like advertised The ice machine on our floor did not work I would definitely not come back

A Google User

Room too cold No routine in room housekeeping services provided during guest stays, terrible considering the high rates Marriott quality is slipping

Room has some dirty soiled spots on the carpet and stains on the wall in the bathroom Service is very poor Overall the experience was disappointing Top dollar charged for less than satisfactory accommodations or service Complimentary breakfast was not provided Front desk clerk acted like she was doing us a favor at check-in Asked “why are you here?” which was none of her business TV programming selection stinks Body wash dispenser in the shower tub was empty, finished shower with their pre-packed soap slivers Hotel is outdated, even lacks USB ports to charge cell phones or other electronic equipment Heard guests on the floor above walking, bouncing or stomping on the floor all night, the noise made sleep very difficult Bed very uncomfortable A terrible stay overall! Did not feel like a valued customer or a welcome guest and checked out early

Marty Cassady

I’m surprised this hotel still gets so many stars That will be changing soon, I am sure I would not stay here again

It was a decent place to sleep with a lot of problems The hot tub was roped off closed with no explanation The fitness room was 89° and the air would not cool it down The fire pit was not turned on, and none of the cushions have been put on the outdoor furniture even though we are well into spring The security door to the courtyard area is completely missing, leaving it open to the back parking lot The shelves for the snack pantry were basically empty And the back door, which has a sign saying it requires a key for entry for the security of guests, was completely unlocked It really felt like nearly every little detail is going overlooked Maybe they are short staffed But this place is nothing special at the current time

Feedback From Real Customers


The Murder Mystery Dinner was an incredible experience! Our event was held inside as opposed to on the rooftop due to the hot weather, which was perfectly fine by me The room in which the event took place was finely decorated and well set up with 8 round tables and a bar in the corner First course of appetizers was brought out promptly at 7 and the other courses were perfectly delivered throughout the rest of the evening by the attentive and professional waitstaff

The food was outstanding, at times unique, and filling I would visit again to just try the restaurant As far as the theatrical part, I was blown away by the incredible acting of all those involved The actors were sure to put on a show and fully embodied their characters, it was most entertaining Overall, an absolute enjoyable experience- perfect for a date night, a night out solo, or with a group of friends!

Elizabeth Kerlick Rodriguez

Thank you for such a nice stay! Everyone was extremely friendly and check in was easy! Our room was great and enjoyed the sound machine for sleeping at night Love the personalization with a special card when we arrived and fresh flowers For dinner, we went to their restaurant, Castle Farm, and we started off with the ravioli and asparagus salad which were both great! Our entrees (braised short rib & black and blue strip) were delicious and cooked perfectly

We also had breakfast before we left the next morning, which was tasty and piping hotJordan made our visit extra special and was a great bartender with delicious cocktails!

Ryan Wellman

I booked the Grand King Deluxe for my wife’s special birthday and every element of our stay was exquisite The room was immaculate, it had everything we needed (thank you for the white-noise machine – not that we needed it; I just can’t sleep without it), the bed was comfortable, the staff was accommodating, etc and the next morning my wife and her friend’s enjoyed a wonderful brunch

I’m told all the plates were cleaned and all reports were very positive Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Sarah Barry

Highly recommended The most memorable part of my month long stay is the all night long restful comfort of the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in I was here, along with friends, for the month of July

Room was spotless and comfortable My room Attendant, Leaha, was efficient, friendly, unobtrusive, doing and excellent job The daily free breakfast bar included a healthy and wide variety of tasty foods and beverages The Attendant, Annie, kept all food items in sufficient supply as well keeping all tables sanitized and spotless during her shift On a side note: a man was on duty never wiped tables or spills on the counter surfaces and food frequently ran out by 9am during his shift The patio/courtyard area was comfortable and kept clean The only negative is the free wifi was very poor and unable to access unless I went to the dining area or the computer room

J. Lawrence

The fist time I stayed here there was an issue with a toilet that was always running and a shower door with chipped glass-not to mention some construction going on at the time (think of a cement truck running, then backing up seemingly every 15 minutes, starting at around 4am)The staff moved me to a different room without issue, really, and my subsequent stays were pretty goodMon-wed they do a social hour from 5-7, free dinner food and $1 beer- Not bad at all if you’re exhausted from a new job and are staying there until your family joins you in town There is a full sized refrigerator, a dishwasher, a two burner stove, and a microwave in the suites, which made it really convenient

As of June/July of ’22, there’s unfortunately some construction going on that is an unpleasant alarm clockBut really, I would recommend Staybridge to visitors I have, actually

Sundee Holliday

We spent one night here for our last night in town Really impressed with the size our 1 bedroom suiteLet me start with the kitchen: Full sized kitchen with a full size fridge

The kitchen has a counter top stove, a microwave that is bigger than the one in my home The cupboards were stocked with plates, bowls, cups, mixing bowls Yes there is even silverwareNice sized living room Same with the bedroom Both the living room and bedroom had tvs The beds were very comfortable too!Bathroom: Separate vanity from the toilet and showerBreakfast: Nice little buffet downstairs stocked with coffee, juices, milk, muffins, warm donuts, cheese omelets, cereals, toast, bagels, sausagesNighttime: I know they have a social hour downstairs and you could get drinks, we didn’t partake in this as my daughter wanted to swim in the poolPool: Nice temperature, indoors, large and cleanPatio: Seen several guys bbqing for their dinner, the patio is really set up nice!

We definitely picked this Hampton location vs others in Lexington based on price (including Marriott’s) of both room rate and pet feeComing north on I-75 and getting into town at 5:30p traffic was a nightmare and took a good 30 minutes from the interstateWe were greeted by a very nice young lady and check- in was fast

We found the same ancient and tiny room referenced by a previous guest For two people and a dog we were stepping all over each other in the 2 queen room, and it was a feat to close the bathroom door if you were actually in it – remodeling isn’t likely to fix that At first glance the room looked old but clean, but then the dog found stuff on the floor to try and eat, and going over surfaces (nightstand, bathroom counter, desk) with our Clorox wipes we found they had dried up stuff on them UghThere are pictures taped on the wall of the hallway of what may be future upgrades, but until that happens I would not return to or recommend this location There are 3 other hotels across the parking lot… pick one of those not the closet filled with furniture from your grandparents garage Sorry HI

Kevin O’Donnell

Pros: Staff is super friendly The ground floor common areas were nice Coffee was hot – even during the evening hours

They offered complimentary snacks with check-inCons: The AC/Heat was too loud Made for a cold night’s sleep The hallways looked tired – specifically the carpet The chairs in the room were a little threadbare

Elizabeth Walker

There is no pool There is no mention of this on the website and we were not told at check-in A check-in that took 20 minutes

The beds are also extremely hard I asked to speak to the Manager because we only chose this hotel for the pool and was told someone would call and have yet to receive a call or even an apology I would recommend a hotel that cares about customer service

My husband and I just spent a wonderful afternoon and evening at the Lyndon House We had never been to a bed and breakfast so we did not know what to expect I love old homes so I adored the original architectural details and it seems like the owners want to keep some of the 1800s charm, which I loved

You cannot compare this to a modern hotel but even so we had Wi-Fi and a smart tv Breakfast was a delicious frittata with bacon and several choices for drinks The innkeeper, Anton, was friendly and accommodating Parking was easy although I am not sure how more that a handful of cars could park in the space behind the house The only reason for 4 stars is that the room was 78 for most of the night and it was at least 80 with no airflow in our bathroom This may be because we booked the day of so there was not time to get it to temperature It took about 12 hrs to get the room to 70 But we would definitely book again… maybe with a little more notice

Donnella H

This was our first time here It was very nice ,upon entering and we enjoyed looking at the decor I was a little confused about our room, as I had requested the Belle when I made the reservation online, however we were given the Bluegrass suite,which was fine, just no communication regarding the change

The flowers, which I requested, and paid for, were there,very pretty We didn’t see or speak with the proprietor the first day,which was fine I don’t like hovering I had requested breakfast in bed, but didn’t receive any response I’m not sure if the owner was too busy, regardless, he did prepare breakfast when my boyfriend went downstairs and asked about breakfast Which was nice The gentleman then helped my boyfriend carry it up to the room Good food, tastefully decorated It was enjoyable The only downside was lack of communication between me and the host/ owner,as well as noticeable oversight with cleanliness in our suite Carpets which were not vacuumed, (clearly ) the extra blanket had been used by a previous guest and tossed in a drawer unfolded,and not clean I would have given 5 stars if not for this I also would have left a generous tip if housekeeping had done the basics,as far as cleanliness Food for thought We would go back Overall, good experienceJust received a response from the owner, on 3/8/2021, and his response is surprisingly petty and defensive EVERYTHING that I said is 100%accurate, and I did not leave stains on the carpet Ridiculous Also, if the housekeeping actually vacuumed, there would not be debris and dirt on the carpets Also, it is the job of housekeeping/ the owner to check all aspects of cleanliness and in drawers, not just leave it ,because “guests usually don’t do that” As for the lack of communication 😒regarding room changes and no breakfast in bed inquiries, I had no response Good luck 👍

Jennifer McEachern

We had a lovely 2 night visit Anton was very nice and breakfast was delightful The home is lovely and you can tell that Anton takes special care in ensuring his guests have a comfortable stay

The location is within walking distance to downtown though I would say we were disappointed with downtown Lexington’s offerings Instead, we took a three block stroll to a local brewery and really enjoyed our evening Our bed was comfortable and the room was quite spacious

If you don’t want to shower at your hotel, add three stars to this review If you plan on showering, subtract these twoThe room was pretty, the bed was comfy, and then the water was cold

The desk man came to feel it, after advising us to “give it a few minutes,” and claimed that the room-temp-at-best water was warm I said, “You’ve showered before, right? You can’t shower in that” I asked for a room with warm water He said maybe too many people had showered, and we could checkout at 12 instead of 11 This was a major disappointment after such a promising location and rest

Andrew Gipson

Do not let the 2 star fool you It’s a great hotel I have stayed at a lot of hotels across this country

And it’s hard to give a number one But this hotel and my experience with Shelly, is above and beyond The friendliness’s and the hospitality is above par The room was clean and even smelled nice No cleaner or chemical smells Bed felt amazing And even the other guest were seemed happy and smiling 10/10 one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at

Amelia Van Polanen

While traveling in Kentucky, my friends and I found ourself in a bind due to our previous hotel being unable to extend our stay So I had to find something available, and thankfully Guest House offered us the solution we needed While we only stayed for a day, we were treated nicely by the staff and had two fantastic rooms

I read many of the reviews prior to selecting this hotel, and most of them were good while a few were slightly alarming Some of the things I saw involved a rude desk employee, musty rooms, mold, and dirty floors-but my friends and I experienced none of this Our rooms were fantastic, especially considering how last minute of a reservation we made The tv had access to numerous channels, which made down time even more enjoyable Checking out was the easiest I’ve ever experienced too Love the horse-inspired designs of the rooms as well! All in all, a great hotel that won’t break the bank and helps any weary travelers in need of a place to park Thanks for a great stay!

The hotel staff was very nice and helpful The rooms were very nice and decorated modern

location was great, restaurants and shopping was nice Could walk everywhere The rooms and hall was very quite bathroom was large and well lit however there was no safety bars or a bamboo seat hard for a woman to shave her legs with out slipping pillows not good so bring your own or go to target and buy one bed was nice Restaurant food was good But not a large selection

Meagan Warfield

The hotel is beautiful I love the location It’s close to a bunch of little shops and restaurants, so you can walk around and not have to worry about more driving or finding parking

The room was exceptionally clean The beds are comfortable as well The TV offers cable channels but you can also sign into apps like Netflix or YouTube so you have more options for shows if you just want to spend time in your room The gym also has a variety of machines and equipment so you can keep up on your workout routine Overall, I was really impressed with the hotel and will be back

Courtney Farley

Loved the location Walking distance to an outdoor shopping mall and restaurants Playground/run around area for kids to get energy out and the hotel let us use it as a bathroom place for our dogs (cleaned up after them)

Lobby is great to hang out in No microwaves in rooms but does have Keurig Would definitely stay again Friendly staff at the front desk as well

From the outside and lobby it is a beautiful hotel The rooms are sub par for the price Old decor, not well cleaned, furniture missing, refrigerator not cooling

Bar closed early, way early before 8 Manager reception started late Restaurant was not open Shower door handle was broke and shower did not drain Was charged parking($12) because I did not use the group code, when called to use group code for reservations was told could not reserve a 2 bed room suite Online reservation did not have the parking fee in the reservation total Breakfast was limited for a Embassy Orange juice came out of the dispenser brown, we drank water Banquet service was great, food was goodWhen all was reported to front desk, no concern was expressed Actually made it out that we was being difficultNot the same standards of quality received at other Embassy Suites or Hilton establishments in the past

Me and my Children have a mini staycation here and they absolutely love it From the pool, to the rooms, and the great breakfast buffet in the am

Had to deal with ants the whole stay There were many times where staff told me the next day wasn’t booked and then it was after I paid Staff needs to worry about their gifts and not their puppy dogs

I was told no about a dog but the staff had dogs Made no sense to me Best part about that place was the housekeepers they really kept your room clean and the trash gone restocked towels without even asking and the breakfast I thought they had a great breakfast The hotel itself is cozy spacious rooms none of it is smoking I like that other than that they need to work on some things

THIS HOTEL IS NASTY!!! Had nasty stains on our sheets and bed skirt, bathroom FULL of mold, A/C had dirt caked on it like it hadn’t been cleaned in years, cobwebs on the walls and spiders and centipedes on the floor in our room and bathroom The staff looks extremely unprofessional This place is awful

They need to do the town a favor and bulldoze this hotel! DO NOT STAY HERE!!

The front desk and lobby were niceroom was actually disgusting

Im not a picky person when it comes to hotels (especially when im just traveling) but my room had black mold all over the bathroom, carpets were obviously not vacuumed (bugs, food crumbs, and toe nail clippings on the floor), had a blood stain on the comforter, walls are PAPER thin, brown stains on the walls, a loud toilet that keeps trying to refill itself without even touching it, and so many other gross stains on everything TRUST mejust go somewhere else

This location has restored my faith in Marriott and the hospitality industry as a whole New & modern facility Exceptionally clean, there was someone cleaning the public areas of the lobby at all hours of the day

Rooms were spacious, clean, and quiet Everything you could ask for Parking is very easy and reasonable Adjacent restaurant at the Residence Inn was very good with attentive service and reasonable prices M Club staff were extraordinary polite Every employee at this location was professional and engaging Breakfast had a reasonable assortment of options with, again, very friendly staff Everyone at this location worked as a team to ensure optimal guest experience I cannot imagine staying at another hotel in Lexington

This hotel is amazing A real remaking of space by Marriott in the best way possible Service from the moment we arrived was superb

The M lounge reduces waste by offering refillable drinks The breakfast buffet is a real value for the price point Bed was awesome The only thing Marriott needs to do in general at all of their hotels is redesign their showers so the water doesn’t overflow between the doors A chain-wide design issue Will stay here again if given the opportunity!

Great location! We enjoyed the modern aesthetics, the outdoor seating m, the cleanliness and the gummy bears in the M club (nice touch! Lol) The rooms were greatThe big misstep was the A/C stopped working around 2AM the first day we got there

Erica at the front desk was very accommodating and apologetic (definitely wasn’t her fault) She offered us a fan from the offices We were pretty upset that there were no maintenance employees called for the emergency Pretty odd… We were told it would be fixed at 7 AM It was as promised and we were comped the night Great customer service and we received a handwritten letter apologizing (very good touch) Overall, the front desk, security and valet were a pleasure This is definitely the best hotel to stay at in the downtown area

In all, would recommend[PROS] The lobby is really nice, and is perfect for lounging in There’s also a non-smoking policy (200$ charge if you smoke in hotel room), so no marijuana smell like a lot of other hotels

The room itself was clean and had all the amenities that a normal hotel would have I payed 142$ for a room that could fit a family of 5-6 people The bed was super comfy as well Location was near a lot of restaurants[CONS] The room had a pull out bed my other family members were going to sleep in, but it didn’t come with extra pillows or blankets, just a really thin sheet and the bed itself Tried calling hotel service but didn’t even pick up! Ended up having to go down there and get the extra necessities Breakfast was okay, don’t get the nasty eggs though, but it’s free so go for it[Conclusion] Overall would come to hotel again, everything spotless/clean, no old furniture, hot water, and affordable considering what your getting Free pool, WiFi, free gym, free food The only big cons is the okay service, but if you needed to contact them I would just go to the front desk than waste your time calling them Location is perfect

Traveled to Lexington, KY with family members to take care of funeral arrangements and attend to matters related to the death of our brother Hyatt Place staff–front desk, breakfast crew, and housekeeping were very gracious They acknowledged our situation, expressed condolences, and made us feel comfortable using the front lobby seating areas and business center

Whatever we requested–hot water for tea, extra coffee packs for the room, fresh towels, permission to eat dinner in the “breakfast room”, glasses for use in our room–the staff cheerfully accommodated Thank you so much for being the “bright spots” during our stay

Amanda Sanders

Hotel staff were all nice There was a breakfast and the room was a nice size I look for 3 things in a hotel: a pool, a breakfast, and water pressure

The pool was cold, swimable, though unpleasant for a length of time and I did not have a desire to go back The water pressure was terrible and went down periodically which makes me think it is attached to another room where someone else was showering Also, you’d better take housekeeping when you can get it because even with specifically requesting a visit they did not come Stayed for 6 days, no housekeeping Had to go down to request towels Also, the traffic noise from the freeway was very loud Will not stay again
