Hey guys, new to the forum. Will be separating from the military and moving to Lexington. Curious though if there are places to stay in like long term hotels or maybe even apartments that can rent for a few months? There is a place in NC (ValuePlace) that was $169/wk rather new too. There are none in Lex though.

You guys have any suggestions of places to stay until we completely lock down jobs and a have a house chosen?

There is an extended stay on Tates Creek..??..If it's still there. Also, I used to live at the Grand Reserve and they used to rent out certain apartments for situations such as this/by the week, don't know for sure about either.

I had a met a military friend once about a year ago that lived at the Holiday Inn North for about six months. There is a service in Lexington that helps executives during relocation and I am sorry to say I can't think of what the name of it is, but they have relationships with a lot of apartment complexes in Lexington. I'm sure since its military they would help. If I think of the name I will let you know.

And most importantly. Thank you for your service!

Thanks for the quick info!

I checked out that link. It did seem very helpful but... after calling and talking to a sales rep the cheapest they had was about $1900/mo for a one bedroom fully furnished apartment.

I'm not extremely cheap (ok maybe a little) but that is way out of my price range

Can anyone else help me out?

Many local apartment complexes will do short term leases with a monthly premium (usually $30-50/month or so). But they aren't usually furnished, so not sure if that is an issue.

There are several of the Extended Stay brand hotels in the area, and they usually come out to about $35/night.

Thanks I'll look into short term leases. Im curious though to how it would work setting up electric, water and cable etc if it is only two months or so?

Also, I called extended stay and they came out to much more than 35 a night. Actually, it was almost double. Do different extended stays have different prices?

On an off topic... Seeing Lexington first hand was awesome. This site is great but the pics really dont do it justice. Everything looked so new from the malls to the downtown area. I was impressed!

That is a good point about the utilities, although I guess there are some that do have all utilities included.

When we relocated here, we were lucky to find a small privately owned home that included all utilities for three months until our house was ready. We only paid about $500/month. It was pretty basic, but it worked for us for a few months. I think we actually found it in the college newspaper for UK: KY Kernel or maybe Ace Weekly? ACE Weekly Newspaper - Your newsweekly for Lexington Kentucky - Front Page / Home

Also, I looked up the Extended Stay online and if you put in a long-term stay (I put it in for two months), it came up with a range from about $35-40/night for the three properties in Lexington. The Nicholasville Rd location was the cheapest of the three. When you talked with them on the phone, did you mention that it was long-term? If you just get a generic nightly rate from their website, they are almost $70/night, but if you put in long dates it gives a much cheaper rate.
