We can't understand the negative feedback. Maybe we were lucky with which room we got. It was clean and everything worked and the receptionist was friendly. OK we don't have a lot of experience of Stateside motels, but this was the best of the half a dozen we used on our trip, definitely better than the two chains we used.... More

First of all, I am not a person that easily complains and goes back to management and asks for my money back. But after my stay at this hotel recently, I need to tell you what happened. Our shower cold faucet did not work - was a loose faucet; so we couldn't take a shower. My husband went to find... More

We travel lots for business and were nervous about the quality of a motel offered for $35 per night in the coupon book. We were pleased to find clean rooms with new beds, fluffy towels, great internet speed and even digital cable with on demand in our room. We stayed 3 nights and while not fancy at all, we lacked...

We stay here every year for the local bluegrass festival, and usually are impressed with the down homey throwback atmosphere of this little hotel. Not so this year. The bedspread was frayed, the walls were dented and dirty, and the advertised wifi was originally nonfunctional. When I went to the front desk to mention that the wifi was not working... More

I have always utilized TripAdvisor reviews when hunting for hotel options. They are almost always accurate. In light of the reviews I have read about the little Buena Vista Motel, I have to respond! People! Buena Vista is a sleepy little university town right off the main road of the Shenandoah Blue Ridge Parkway. The motel never intended to be... More

Hotels around lexington are varied and tend to get way over priced when the schools have events. This place is minutes away, clean, cozy, with decent beds and very large rooms. It has become our preferred stay when visiting VMI.

Crisp clean sheets, but whole room needs a good dusting in corners for spiders and their webs. An older motel, like previous reviews, management was friendly and brought extra towel and washcloth for third person. Offered ice for cooler. All in all, not totally bad but I can't really recommend it either.

I expected an older "motel" style and that's what we got. No $45 rooms as on the website - everything was $60. Yes, room was reasonably large with 2 queen beds, a mini frig and microwave, plus tv and table. Bathroom fixture and plumbing appear to be all original; clean but steady water drips. Microwave looked brand new. The picture... More

I'm sorry to say that I would not stay here again or recommend this motel to anyone else. We had been on the road for approx. 10 hrs. and needed to find a place to sleep so we left the highway and found this motel. We arrived at approx. 10:30 p.m. to find the office locked and had to call... More
