This is my second stay at the Lexington Country inn for another timber framing project, this time at the Habitat for Humanity site in Lexington.
Carlson Inns are my favorite place to stay and this one is great with their home style atmosphere, friendly staff, great location and wonderful breakfast included in the price.
April is a busy time of year in this area and I did not book soon enough. When I tried to book online all standard rooms were sold out so I decided to call and after Googling found a 1 800 number and thought I was talking to Carlson and booked the only option given which was a king suite for $175 per night. After booking with a credit card and receiving a confirmation email I was surprised to see it was hotel.now. On arrival at the hotel I found I could have only booked the king for one night and then the other four at the regular price of $100 per night with considerable savings but as I was prepaid could not change. Call your local Carlson and they will give you their 1 800 number and many more options.
The room is well laid out with separate sitting and bedroom with the bathroom in between. The heating/ air conditioning is located in a closet and very quiet. Each area has a large digital TV.
I ask for a room facing the back as the highway is close and can be busy if you face the front. It is very close to restaurants, gas, and a monster Wallmart. It is about ten minute drive to downtown Lexington and VMI.
I was surprised, after turning all the lights on, that the carpet in my third floor room was quite old and badly stained in many areas.
I was also not impressed, per my last report, to find that the cups and glasses were still PAPER. Coming from Ontario. Canada where they are glass. I was also disappointed that at 6 am on a Monday morning the daily papers were all taken. There are not papers delivered to rooms.
Wireless Internet is excellent and free. I believe they also have a computer with keyboard in the lobby for customer use.
