“Reasonable - If high quality matters, pay more and go elsewhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

The old lady in the kitchen who oversees the breakfast is friendly and warm. It feels as if you are in someone's home and she is taking care of you. That experience more than the quality of food is memorable. Coffee was a disaster. So diluted! This hotel is located right next to two other motels (quality inn and days inn). So if you want to just crash for the night and want the cheapest room, price should be your criteria. But if you arrive early and want to enjoy the view from up the hill in the evening or morning, then this hotel should be worth your time. Every room has a microwave and fridge.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

The breakfast was very limited, ended up eating at McDonald's. The room felt dingy and we couldn't get the balcony door to open. The Wi-Fi was excruciatingly slow and the signal was very weak so the tablets had a hard time connecting. It was a road trip stop for us and for that purpose it was just fine, can't complain about the quality of sleep. The bed was comfortable but the comforter was very thin.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Our stay was October 25th. It is up on a hill with a great view if you stay on the front of building. Property was seasonably clean and check in went well. It was the first place of four hotels in five nights that gave us a room with a sliding door off the rear parking lot to walk our dog. Huge area for dog walking! Room was roomy and clean. We are not too picky on how worn room is, as much as how clean it is. We were happy happy here. As with most hotels we stayed at, they did not charge us a dog fee even though we let them know on check-in that we had a dog. I would definitely stay here again!

The Lexington VA Howard Johnsons is a good value. Location is convenient to US 81 with a modest drive to VMI or W&L universities. Given its high hill setting, the view from the front is scenic. Rooms are clean and breakfast is well done. It could use some modest updates (elevator moulding) and the workout room is the standard small room with a treadmill and a ping-pong table. This hotel has an outdoor pool and a mini-golf area that we have not yet utilized. Staff is friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front side of the hotel for the view. The back side can get some truck noise f...
