4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights over the holidays. It was quiet and comfortable, and the cleaning staff was amazing. My daughter had accidentally made a mess of the bathroom (an experiment - don't ask), and I was ready to pay for some ruined items, but they were able to salvage all but one towel.

The woman working the front desk on the evenings on Dec 26-29 was especially friendly and helpful. She even got me a cup of tea while I was waiting in the lobby for a relative.

Breakfast was plentiful and often restocked. There was some sort of youth convention or meeting during our last couple of days there, and most rooms had 4 or more people in them. The staff was well prepared with extra food, waffle machines, etc. They also had lots of signs out at the lobby, elevator, etc. outlining the rules - e.g. no more than 6 people to a room, remember to respect other guests, do not prop doors open with locks as this makes things loud, etc. All this prep seemed to work, as we were not bothered by excessive noise at all. (Certain Lake Placid Hotels during the Can Am hockey season, take note!!)

The indoor pool is fairly large and was very warm while we were there, maybe even too warm. The towels at the pool were tiny, so you may want to bring your own. We didn't need large towels, though, because the pool area was so warm.

The only area where we had some problems was the hotel shuttle. We were given different information about the hours of the shuttle by different staff people. Luckily, the driver was willing to take us even though we were told by the front desk person that day that it was too late. We would have arranged something else, but the driver the previous day had told us that it went until 10 pm.

I think the hotel has some sort of connection with Liberty (besides being next to campus). It looks like Liberty runs their vending machines at least. However, there is no obvious advertising of the school and its tenets, and non-Christians will feel welcome here.

Room Tip: The slightly more expensive rooms have a view of the mountains and Liberty University.

Thank you for your excellent observations during your stay with us at the Wingate by Wyndham in Lynchburg, Virginia. You actually stayed with us on one of our busiest times of the year during WINTERFEST and I am glad that we were prepared to handle the extra crowds and provide excellent customer service at the same time. We are happy to provide complimentary shuttle service to/from the Lynchburg Regional Airport and the Kemper Street Train Station from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. (In addition, during the semester, the Liberty University Shuttle System is available to our guests.) We appreciate your suggestion and will make sure that everyone on our staff has the most updated shuttle schedule.

This is a 1st rate Hotel owned by Liberty University.
Rooms are Great and Clean. Heated indoor pool and hot tub. Hot Breakfast !!!
Great Wi-Fi !!!
Customer service is Paramount.
This Hotel is Located at the Top of a fairly steep hill,
which would normally not be a problem.
When 12" of snow hit the area, vehicles without 4-wheel drive
couldn't make it up the hill to the Hotel.
So, How many Hotels do you think would send a crew out the
next day to dig vehicles out of a Hardee's Parking Lot with 3 foot drifts
left from snow plowing the main roads ?
That's Right...This Hotels General Manager and a Crew spent 1hr & 45 min with
shovels and brawn to get these vehicles back up to their parking lot.
Clearly this establishment knows what it takes to ensure the safety and
security of it's guests. Very Impressive !!!

We actually have a theme verse for the Wingate Lynchburg which is Matthew 5: 14-15: “You are the world’s light – a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light!” Donato Nosce, our General Manager, empowers our staff to “make a difference” in the lives of our guests each day and this is an ideal example of his leadership. We have an incredible team here at the Wingate Lynchburg and each of our staff members is willing to share their gifts of hospitality with our guests.
