What they said!

There's another one very near it...don't remember the name...it's no doubt cheaper...but it just plain smelled bad the last time I was there, tried two different rooms...and went to the HI.

Stay at the castle!!! No for real, there's a castle that you can stay at. I've always wanted to stay there, but it's probably expensive?

I like it! A bit cheap though. You can't even get double beds until you get up in the $600 range geez...

You may want to consider staying in Ashland or somewhere else near to but not in Lexington if there's a horse race that weekend. If you stay a little ways out from the race bs the prices of rooms shouldn't be any different than any other time of the year.

If you wanted to stay a little further away, there are several hotels near the airport in Erlanger, KY. There's also a Hampton Inn on Turfway right off I75. These are both probably between 60-90 minutes from the range. I live in Hebron and will be driving down that morning if anybody wants to carpool.
