The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was delightful, with several options to choose from including eggs and sausage. It was close to downtown and offered free parking. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay close to the city.

UK hoops

Was in town for the UK/Tenn game and was looking for a hotel close to Rupp. 1.1 mile away and I casually walked it in 20 minutes. Safe, secure location; easy to find. UK campus is right there! Everything was first rate and great from the staff, room comfort, breakfast bar was stocked full and one of the best I've ever seen. 5-stars all the way!!!
