Default Tax on hotels

I think somewhere I read it is high. I'm going to be able to come down and will be staying in Lexington for 7 days. Can anyone tell me that kind of info??

Sales and Hotel Taxes
Kentucky state sales tax is 6 percent. Groceries are exempt. There is a hotel tax of 6 percent and a state fee of 1%, bringing the total tax on hotel rooms to 13.4%.
A better rate than Orlando, and you will actually enjoy visiting here

Every city puts extra taxes on the hotel industry. The visitor's don't vote. At least Lexington hasn't tacked on a 'arena recoupment fee' like most larger cities have done (especially on rental cars too).

I still find it difficult writing this - trying to justify a 13% tax as being 'nice and friendly'.

Well, during the ice storm, something like $110 became $130 (or something like that) after taxes, etc. - but we really just needed a warm place to stay! Now, the real issue is the motel which probably average $39 every other night!
