Griffin's Modern Hotel was the perfect place for my week-long stay in Lexington. It was spacious, private and had all of the amenities I needed. Up on the 3rd floor, I felt very safe and had a beautiful view of trees. The hosts were very responsive and happy to help during my stay. Whoever wrote that this was a hidden gem is right on! Will definitely stay there again next time.

We were so fascinated by this beautiful building! The room is large, spotlessly clean (especially for an older building), well appointed, and comfortable. Jordan provided excellent communication and recommendations and made sure everything was ready (with some great bonus touches like coffee and some cold beverages). There's a bit of street noise (but we loved the convenience of the location and the neighborhood was safe) and there's a lot of stairs, but the building itself is SO charming! Barely needed any communication because we had NO needs that weren't met (beyond our expectations!) but anytime I so much as let Jordan know what we were up to, he responded within minutes. I'm not the easiest to please...and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Just know...there is no TV...but we were there for Rolex and didn't miss it at all.

We loved that Griffin and Jordan are renting this place out to help with the financials to restore this home. What they have done up to this point is great! The woodwork and stained glass are beautiful!! I would love to see it once they are finally done restoring!! I believe another review called this home a diamond in the rough,and I agree!! There is lots of revitalization going on in this area… Beautiful homes!!! The guys were very good about communication with us, and giving recommendations of places to go in the area. Everything was as it looked in the pictures. Very centrally located. We stayed in the one bedroom and it was adorable! Clean, good AC, hot water, cozy bed, and fully loaded kitchen. They even go above and beyond by putting some things in the refrigerator to get you started. Very hospitable!! We only had one issue and that was not anything that Jordan or Griffin could control. There is another space they rent out on the 3rd floor along with ours. That space sleeps six. There was a group of women staying while we were there. The group got a little loud with their partying. So, that was a bit frustrating. Again this is not something they could control, and a risk you take renting a shared space. Overall for the price we paid, the location, and how cute it was… It was still worth it!! We cut our trip short due to bad weather, but would definitely go back!!

Easy check in and check out. The place was clean and spacious. The location was good as well, we easily biked and walked all around the city.

Very unique and great value. The house itself is very old and creates an Adams Family like atmoshpere. The room itself is fully functional and could act as a stand alone apartment. This is not for the elderly or anybody who has challenges with stairs. The whole place only seemed marginally clean.

I'm from and involved in a never ending relationship with Lexington, KY. I'm hitched to a filmmaker, artist, and teacher named Sarah Wylie, and we two wild boys named Otis and Homer.
I'm a neighborhood man, and know everything about the NOLI Neighborhood, and a good deal about Lexington.
I like to explore cities, hang out, and tube on the Elkhorn creek. I love Kentucky, but I love other places too.
If it's got ice cream I want it.
