This was an excellent Hampton Inn (clean, quiet, courteous staff) with the unexpected bonus of being part of a historic property preservation. While I find it unfortunate that a historic home ended-up as part of a hotel chain property, I understand that preserving the property was a challenge for the local economic reality, so give credit to Hampton for at...

We like the hotel and find it to be very comfortable, but $230 per night for a king bed and sleep sofa is pretty steep for Lexington, Va., even on law school graduation weekend. But it was pretty obvious many families of graduates had concluded, like we did, that the location and quality of the accommodations outweighed the extra cost.... More

This is not the typical Hampton Inn. It is in the Historic District of Lexington with in walking distance to VMI were we attended the commissioning ceremony of our grand son. as a retired Navy Master Chief I was able to give him his first salute.

Col Alto is a Historic property, with expansive grounds that include a Georgian style manor house, a cabin and barn as well as horse trails and "Parking" for carriages. It’s a bit of a walk from some areas of the hotel addition via a lovely covered walkway to the breakfast room in the house but if you have a physical... More

Lexington, VA, home of Virginia Military Institute and Washington and Lee University, tries to preserve its appearance a a small town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with houses clinging to steep hillsides on the road into town and with a downtown full of mid - 18th century buildings. To this end, most national chains are located on the outskirts... More

We have stayed here before and think this is one of the nicest of the Hampton Inns. The rooms are huge and the staff is very friendly. We were in town for a reunion at Washington & Lee, and the hotel is nicely arranged for such an event, with living room spaces so we could easily visit in a public... More

I had stayed at this hotel in the past & had a fantastic experience- it really could not have been improved, so I was actually excited about heading back. However, this visit left a little to be desired!!! The E-check-in room I requested was given to another guest, and the options were facing the parking lot (as in having cars... More

What a unique repurposing of a very old mansion. It was really well kept, the room was in good condition, and the grounds of the hotel were gorgeous. I hardly heard anyone when in my room at night. Breakfast was as expected in terms of Hampton Inn fare, and there was plenty of seating. The staff were especially courteous...they even... More

Good location for me but I was put in a room that was in the very back of the hotel. Far from the main lobby and a long walk with my luggage. I state that it was average because I usually stay in nicer places. Sp, I guess everything is relative.

Thank you for taking the time to write a TripAdvisor review. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of the location of your room. Our property is unlike most Hampton Inns, with our lobby being in a historic Manor House that was built in 1827. Unfortunately it does require a walk under a breezeway to get to the hotel rooms from... More

We stayed here two years ago and went back again this month. Rooms are immaculate, service is excellent, food is fine, and location is perfect - no trains, planes, or highway noise. The lobby and dining area are in what was originally the Governor's mansion over a hundred years ago, and it has been period restored. The grounds are beautiful... More
