“What a great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We travel for Agility Trials which means traveling with dogs. This is the nicest motel. Very dog friendly. Large rooms w/ fridge - comfortable beds. Nice hot breakfast. Staff outstanding & friendly - very accommodating. Let us checking early

Room Tip: Get a room on front side of building for beautiful view of mountains & sunset. King rooms great

This hotel is an anomaly for the HoJo chain. We're told it's the oldest hotel in Lexington, which might lead one to believe it's a dog, but whoever owns this one has done--in our view--a super job of keeping it up. The rooms are large and clean, the beds are comfortable, and the view is amazing. This place sits at the top of a hill, with sweeping views of the countryside, and this is horse country, so it has a rural feel. Friendly staff, and the usual continental breakfast (waffles, cereal, fruit, biscuits, sometimes gravy, toast, coffee, juice) served by a lady who's actually happy to help you and happy to be working there. We adjusted our route back to NM from the east coast just to stay at this hotel again...and we'll be back. An added benefit: a mile up the road is the TA Lee Hi truck stop and Berky's Restaurant. Good menu, good food and--if you're hungry--check out the buffet. No wonder there are so many truck drivers there. Bottom line, this is a great, bargain hotel in a beautiful part of Virginia. If they ever close down, we'll be sad.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in front, on an upper floor, and enjoy the view. You can open the door to the balcon...

This hotel was a little scary -- top of the hill, creepy statues in the lobby, but we needed a safe place to spend the night on a long trip. Honestly, I had high hopes. But our key wouldn't work in the exterior door -- a major pain when you are carrying a kid and a Pack'n'Play. Then our room reeked of smoke -- even though I don't think there's been smoking rooms in a long time. The worst was that there were people in the room next to us, totally unnecessary in a nearly vacant hotel. We needed a quiet night and didn't get that.

I will say that breakfast was fine and the hotel served its purpose. But I won't be doing HoJo again.

Friendly staff, hot water...beat up room with a giant bug on the wall. Entrance is so dark outside the closed restaurant you'll be scared to enter...with so many same-priced hotels nearby that were so nice, I really picked a bad one!
