“Good night's sleep at friendly hotel in need of more maintenance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

Like some other reviewers, I chose this hotel because the less expensive ones had awful reviews. This choice yielded a decent night's sleep on a comfortable, very clean bed in a large room. Had to reject first room because balcony door did not lock, dirt on balcony, and bulbs missing from lamps. Second room was very clean overall and in better shape, except I discovered that the bathtub faucet dribbled continuously and what appeared to be black mold (but it didn't stink) covered one corner of tub. By this time I was very tired so put up with the room, but obviously not pleased about the problem. My sense is that cleaning staff did great, but maintenance not so much. The air conditioners worked, but both rooms had large dust and debris deposits on vent. Good, quiet and scrupulously clean refrigerator in my room was very handy. Breakfast was plentiful but standard "inexpensive motel" fare, fine coffee. The staff I met were extremely friendly and helpful as much as possible. Note: hotel is a few miles north of the town of Lexington.

Room Tip: Ask for mountain view if possible, also a higher floor and no adjoining door as walls and ceilings n...

The view is beautiful but the rooms and hotel as a whole needs to be updated. Air conditioning units are old and need to be replaced. The vents in the bathrooms are in need of replacement. They are dirty and loud because the bearings are bad.
The disperser for tosses was falling off the wall. The bathtub had black edges in the bottom where a bath mat use to be.

The hallways had unfinished work and there were no ice machines on the floor any more. Looks like they just capped off what use to be there and the area was dirty and in need of repair.

The clerk at the front desk was more interested in her IPad than be nice or interested in anything we had to ask her about. Oh she answered the questions but would have preferred we hadn't bothered her.

The true cycle of online reviews is certainly present as I chose this destination after determining based on other Trip Advisor reviews that this hotel offered all the needed amenities at an affordable price. This wasn't the cheapest hotel being offered in the Lexington area nor was it even close to being the most expensive but pound for pound, or in this case dollar for dollar this was an excellent motel. It was just off the Interstate and a little tricky to find as it sits off the Lee Hwy high on top of a hill. Check in was without a hitch and our room was roomy, clean and comfortable. Getting online was without a problem and we were freely able to exit and enter our ground floor room off a sliding patio door which makes it convenient if your traveling with a smoker but don't opt for a smoking room. Breakfast in the morning was included in the price and was well presented offering the typical continental fare including two waffle makers, eggs, juice and so forth. Other than obviously being situated just below a traveling family as there seemed to be a constant tapping of not so little feet above us I really can't find anything that I was unhappy with our stay so feel free to book a room here.

We needed an inexpensive stopover motel on a long, late-night trip from DC to South Carolina. The unit was very comfortable and the staff extremely friendly. The breakfast was good. The mountain was great. We were just passing through, but it would be a wonderful location if you were visiting the area for the parks. Note that it is a Wyndham motel, but the link to Tripadvisor in the Wyndham survey email did not work.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view. We got one at the same rate as other rooms.
