“Would definitely stay there again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We stayed there for a wedding. I traveled with my elderly mother and was hoping to check in early so she could rest before the evening wedding. The woman at the reservation counter tried very hard to get our room ready earlier or even to get another room in the same area, but none were available. We finally checked in right at 3:00. The room was clean and met our needs. Breakfast at their restaurant was very reasonable, unlike a lot of hotels, and was very good. The hostess, Pat(ricia) had a great sense of humor and made our meal an enjoyable one. The server, Ralph, was very polite and responsive to our needs as a large group -- a very good experience. The location is perfect for walking to lots of shops and restaurants, and was somewhat hilly depending on where you're headed. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at this hotel one night for local wedding being held downtown. Overall the hotel is good. The lobby is open and large, front desk friendly and the room was clean. It was large and had a small desk and lounging chair. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom is on the small side - you need to move to the side of the toilet to close the door. But it is updated and water pressure was wonderful. Parking is free and it is either a very small old lot outside or the parking garage next door. Currently the hotel is being renovated - there was black plastic taped to the ceiling in the hallways.
I was happy with the location only because it was walking distance to the event, but I would say this is not a lively downtown. I've lived in the area so I know some of the other hotels are in nicer areas that are closer to shopping and restaurants.

Dear Trav16,

Thank you for review!

We are glad that your stay was an enjoyable one.

Renovations on the 8th floor ceiling are almost complete, and will most certainly be done prior to your next visit with us.

I was very impressed with the Peruvian fare in the restaurant. Surprisingly, the restaurant is very unimposing and there were only a few folks dining on a Saturday evening. The first menu is the normaly burgers, steaks, etc. A second smaller menu is also provided and it was authentic Peruvian food (from the mountain areas). Having been to Peru, I was skeptical but the appetizer and dinner were amazing. The Chef came to see us afterwards and we were delighted to speak with her and discuss the foods of Peru. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Erica, the person at the front desk, was extremely pleasant and helpful. She was happy to do anything to make our stay there good and was always in a great mood. So appreciate the way we were treated, The hallways could use a cleaning but the room was very clean. The food service for breakfast was very good as well. They switched out anything we wanted to change for breakfast. All in all it was a very good place to stay and we will again

This hotel is nestled right into downtown Lynchburg, away from all the other hotels off of Candler's Mountain. This was my second time staying here and I came away impressed. I was upgraded to a suite and was given a coupon for breakfast. The best part of the hotel in my opinion is the fact that the hotel restaurant offers authentic Peruvian food, which blew me away. It was excellent! I will definitely stay here again the next time I am in Lynchburg.

Room Tip: Was upgraded to a suite due to my platinum status.

Calls to the head housekeeper went unanswered calls to the general manager went unanswered ask desk people for help they just tell you it is not there department so they can't help. That is why calls to head housekeeper and general manager become so important and those people ignore calls.Each morning was unique at breakfast, vouchers are given to some guests to use to purchase breakfast. The restaurant manager on our first day told us we could only have one particular breakfast with the voucher. Since we were booked for 5 weeks this was a concern , since everyone wants some choices. Again the front desk knew nothing and could not help,calls to find out some info went unanswered.About a week later a bus boy informed us we could order other breakfasts with our voucher. Well then it really became an adventure,one server charged for free coffee because she poured our first another server charged us 38 cents for our meal and then added full tax so the bill jumped to 1.76,petty agravation.Another server never charged any extra no matter what we ordered and no one would explain why. It turns out that a dollar value was assigned to these vouchers which no one would tell us. The dollar value was assigned at less than the breakfast we were told was the only one we could have,again no reason given.Each day was an adventure depending which server we had for breakfast. The room was old ,dirty, not cleaned well. Housekeepers were not friendly or helpful and quite lazy.We travel for work a lot and stay 30 days or more in each location and have yet to encounter a worse overall hotel. We would not send our worse enemy here.After 2 weeks there we left for another hotel and spent the next 3 weeks in peacful bliss.When you travel a lot you just want a plesant experience, therefore don't go to this Holiday Inn. This was our first stay at a Holiday Inn and it will be a long time before we ever try one again

I am so sorry to hear about your experience here. The restaurant voucher program could have, and should have been explained to you properly by your server. We are looking into why that was not accomplished. We certainly do not want our guests to encounter difficulties during any part of their visit with us. We would welcome the opportunity to make this up to you at a future date. My apologies.
