The Kentucky Hotel is a historic hotel building located at Lynchburg, Virginia. It is one of Lynchburg's three remaining early 19th century ordinaries. It was probably built before 1800, and is a 2 12-story structure of brick laid in Flemish bond. In about 1814, two side bays were completed, converting the house to a center hall plan.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1] It is located in the Fifth Street Historic District.
