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

After reading some of the reviews, we were hesitant to stay here, but we found it to be the perfect place for a couple of nights while we were hiking in the area. The rooms seemed to be newley painted and the carpet was new. We had a coffee maker, small frig, hair dryer, and wi fi access. The office... More

I was a little leery after reading other reviews, but we had a good experience. The room was large with two queen size beds, clean crisp sheets, new blankets, very comfortable bed. We had a coffee machine w/coffee, iron + board, hair dryer, microwave and small refrigerator. Decor was dated, but bedroom and bathroom were very clean. Friendly reception at... More

We're currently at the motel right now, and to be honest, not quite the best accommodations. It looks as though we have the high speed internet that was promised, which of course enables me to write this splendid review. However, it's not a reliable connection. There were ragged blankets on the beds (two beds) and one had hair follicles on... More

I've stayed at this establishment two different times a year apart. Both times I received a good rate due to coupons from the rest area ads. The first time was quite interesting. The woman in the office was extremely sweet and talkative. Very interesting character. We had 5 in our family so she gave us a rather large room w/... More

This is a very old hotel with worn lines, and poor management. If you have any problems or need additional items, you have to wait until the manager comes onto the property, which is almost never. Our room smelled of cat urine. Horrible!!
