Hotel is located right off I-75 exit close to downtown Lexington and minutes to Keeneland Race track. Room was clean and comfortable. Wedding at Keeneland and had shuttle service to and from the racetrack compliments of the Bride and Groom.

This resort lives up to most of the reviews I read before traveling. The staff is friendly; the food is good; the decor and furnishings are tired and need attention. With that said, the hotel is beginning a major update/upgrade of its facilities with the golf areas being improved and finished this past May. The grounds are rolling and beautiful,...

Thank you for your thoughtful review of our Resort! We are placing a few additional signs throughout our property to let our guest know about the wonderful Legacy recreational trail, located directly across the street. This asphalt-paved trail heads to downtown Lexington, and in the other direction, to the Kentucky Horse Park. It is a wonderful, scenic trail for walk,...

Great location, close to downtown Lexington, very clean and a beautiful hotel. The beds are Tempur-pedic and the rooms are very comfortable and smell very fresh. There are indoor and outdoor pools and an 18 hole golf course. The staff is always very nice recommending different restaurants and things to do in Lexington.

With a 15 minute drive to downtown Lexington and its brewhouses and fine restaurants, this is a great location just off I-75. As a runner, I found the proximity to the 12-mile Legends Trail appealing (a paved running and cycling path through the Cane Watershed). As a conference center, the hotel was wonderful and affordable. We booked an extra night...

Stayed here for a wedding. We were pleasantly surprised that they had just replaced all mattresses with tempurpedic mattresses. Super comfy. You can tell the hotel is older but they did a nice job with the remodel. Our suggestions for improvement would be a microwave and an in room safe. The staff was exceptional.
