“OK but not the greatest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

This was our first night stop on a cross country trip. Breakfast was excellent. Room was clean. The main complaint was that the people next door were smokers and smoked directly outside our room. I wouldn't complain typically but they smoked ALL night long --several times I woke up with an overwhelming nasty cigarette smell throughout our room. Our 2nd and 3rd night Best Western experience in other cities were much better.

Thank you so much for your review. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed our breakfast and the clean room. I am sorry for the smoke that came into your room. We are a smoke friendly hotel and do allow our guests to smoke. We try our very best to make sure all guests are happy and enjoy their stay with us. Anytime this happens please let the front desk know so we can come up with a solution that works for both you and them. I would like to thank you for still having faith in the Best Western Brand and continuing to stay with us. If you come through again on your way home we hope you stay with us.

We recently stayed at 3 different Best Western on a trip to The Outer Banks through Lexington, VA. We ranked this hotel #2 of the three. It was very clean and surprisingly quiet with the exterior entrances and its location near a fairly busy highway during our Saturday, May 26 stay. With its location in a town with two colleges, we checked their calendars to see if prices would likely be raised for a graduation, etc. We have stayed just up the freeway in Staunton several times so that is an option if the Lexington hotels have upped their prices or are booked. I also have a review of the other Best Western which is located really close to this one so check it out, too.

This hotel is amazingly clean and I really checked. I finally found just a little dust on the chair rungs under the chairs in the nice breakfast space where you can enjoy a good free breakfast which included nicely cooked scrambled eggs as a choice. The ladies in the breakfast area were very friendly and kept everything stocked.

The hotel"s location right beside Applebees and a Dairy Queen and gas station make it very easy to take care of business and get back on the road. Don't miss the mockingbird that perches in a light on the parking lot. It really adds to the otherwise typical road trip environment.

Overall, we probably will stay here again and will recommend it to friends and family. Be aware of the rather strict cancellation policy though.

Near the beginning of the Blue Ridge Parkway, but Lexington is a college town so you have to watch for local events and maybe the price is a little higher because of this. Hotel is located among other hotels and restaurants. Outside doors, but no problem with noise. Everything inside the room was quite adequate and the breakfast was good. Lovely birds singing in the trees and there was a little outdoor sitting area alongside the building.

My wife and I have been on a week long driving trip and this was the most expensive place we stayed by far. Maybe it's fact that it was a Friday night, or it's a college town, or their were weddings, but for whatever reason the rates seemed to be raised compared to other places we've stayed at. Otherwise, a decent place, nice rooms, Applebee's restaurant right next door, good internet connection.

From reading the reviews, I expected much better. I'm surprised it carries the best western brand name, rooms are old, paint is bad, etc. etc. Really needs a total renovation
