The hotel was on the perfect area in downtown Lynchburg. The Farmers Market, coffee shop and a few restaurants and stores were within walking distance. The view included the James river, bridge and lush hills plus people riding bikes and walking. The hotel itself was rustic with old brick walls, comfortable beds and bedding and huge old windows. It used... More

We loved it, when my son was visiting Liberty no other hotel would let him check in because he was not 21 but the Craddock they picked him up from the airport and they took him to the school. They were wonderful, my son who traveled alone for the first time was very complimentary. When we stayed for move in... More

My family and I recently stayed at the CTH while moving our daughter to the dorms at Liberty University. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, not overly stuffy but very casual and elegant. The only improvement I would recommend is to have brighter lighting in the bathroom vanity area as it is difficult to curl hair/apply make-up in the existing light.... More

WOW, the smell of the sewage nearby was a bit much and the VERY thin walls within the hotel rooms left nothing to the imagination. The trains went by every 2 to 3 hours not allowing much time for solid sleep.

Our son, who travels a lot, recommended this hotel. Strange name, which it got from the shoe company whose building it now occupies. Completely renovated but retaining subtle reminders of its past. Room service breakfast served in a shoe cleaning box. Large rooms with high ceilings in a riverside setting. Right downtown in Lynchburg but in an area that's dying:... More

My husband and I went here for the weekend and didn't want to leave! Jay at check in was so welcoming and accommodating. Gave us great recommendations and a map for the James River Heritage Bike Trail. (The reason we were in town.) The Craddock Terry is the perfect hotel for riding the trail. It is right out the back... More

This is a gorgeously renovated and maintained property! A first class experience! Close to the river paths for running, walking and biking. Staff is friendly and helpful and of course there is Buster Brown, the hotel dog! Loved our visit. Just wish we had an excuse to return!

The Craddock Terry Hotel is one of my favorite places to stay. Representing the shoe industry they have plaques of different shoes on your door. The first time we stayed we had a baby shoe on our door.....almost asked for another room...lol. This past weekend we were upgraded to a suite with a sitting room. It was so nice because... More

Everything about this hotel is first class,service great,Very personal service and the quaintness of the rooms was wonderful.if in Lynchburg this is the place to stay.the only slight detail that should be fixed,if you don't have a key you can't get to room from restaurant without a long walk climbing stairs.

Tis hotel has retained many of the stunning architectural details of the original building including towering windows and exposed brick walls. Evidence of the building's former use as a shoe factory are interestingly incorporated throughout the property. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Their casual restaurant is excellent. We enjoyed sitting outside on the deck under the string lights... More
