Was there for two nights for LU's Graduation. The elevator was down all three days. The shower water leaked out on to the floor after every shower. One of the days the bath was not cleaned, had to call service. Made the reservations 9 months in advance for two rooms. Confirmed them again n January. I requested and promised ground... More

I brought 3 young kids to Lynchburg to celebrate the end of the school year (ages 8, 5, 22 months), with the idea of giving them memories that they'll cherish when they are older. This was the perfect place for that. The giant shoes on the outside of the hotel, the friendly dog in the lobby, the big wooden shoebox... More

I traveled to Lynchburg with my family to visit a school that my son will be attending. We loved the hotel immediately when we drove up. We were welcomed warmly by the hotel manager and the resident dog, Buster Brown. My daughter loves dogs and enjoyed playing with him as we were checking in. Everything is decorated in a cute...

I've traveled to Lynchburg from the west coast often for business, and stay at the normal business hotels (Courtyard, Holiday Inn Select), and after getting a recommendation for this hotel for my visit in May, I booked a room. I pulled in, walked up, and just started saying "Wow!". Amazing setting among the trees, on the railroad tracks and James... More

We stayed here for one night en route to Williamsburg, and chose the hotel based on tripadvisor reviews. Unfortunately we didn't see the review which mentioned the train horns, and if there was any disclosure on the hotel website which would have alerted us to the possibility, we missed that too. We were put in the separate building which was... More

My husband and I visited the Craddock Terry for one night. Boy was I impressed. For one thing, the hotel is so interesting from a design perspective. It used to be an old shoe warehouse. They have taken the shoe theme and done some very creative things to the rooms, hallways and lobby. For instance, on each door is a... More

My wife and I love to travel--have visited 8 foreign countries and many of America's hot spots. This hotel, surprisingly only 10 minutes from our house,had the coolest atmosphere and poshest accommodations we've experienced in domestic travel--rivaling some of the high-end destinations we've enjoyed abroad. The shoe theme is expressed in a classy and creative way. The fixtures and details... More

Great room, comfortable bed, nice bath. Be sure that you book a room in the front building - away from the train and away from the pizza restaurant. Our first room's floor was the ceiling of the pizza place - the music was unbelievably loud and intrusive. Once we moved to the front building, we had a nice stay at... More

Do not book this hotel if you intend to sleep. The trains run at all hours and they blast the airhorn directly behind the hotel where there is a crossing. Upon checkout, the clerk addressed my complaint by saying "that's funny, a gentelman who just checked out said he enjoyed the trains." I took this characterization to be as false... More
