“Commendation Of Employee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I would like to commend one of the employees for excellent service given to me and my family. Mr. Anthony Slaughter was superb in his professionalism and hospitality. He is truly a valuable asset!!!!!

Clean Rooms, Excellent Service and great location. This hotel was perfect for a weekend trip to Lynchburg. Bar, Restaurant on site with great food. Walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants and the waterfront park. Waterfront has great trails, bike rentals and ties into the Hertitage Trail that is the rail to trail program.

Room Tip: Our room was non smoking and we had a microwave and refrigerator. Great water pressure in shower.

I stayed here while I was in town for a medical school interview. I am overall pleased. I got a great deal on priceline so I am definitely happy with the quality of room I got for the price paid. The front desk attendant was very friendly and made sure I had everything I need to have a great stay. They happily brought me up an extra comforter. My room was clean and the house keeping staff I encountered was more than happy to answer my questions. The rooms are a little dark as far as lighting but no major complaints! I would recommend this property and return if I am in Lynchburg again. There is a train that goes by for those that are light sleepers.

This is an older property that needs updating, but as far as hotels within walking distance of good restaurants, bars, and the river, this is one of the only ones in Lynchburg.
The hotel, itself, if passable: there is covered parking within a few yards of the hotel (great for winter), and there is a restaurant/bar within the hotel, which is pretty decent, the rooms are a little dated, but not too bad -- most notably in the bathroom.
I will stay here again (I have already stayed here twice), mostly for the location. There are unique restaurants and drinking holes within a short walk from the hotel, which for me is a must when I travel for business.
If you want to eat at the Olive Garden or at Applebees, the HI Express or Hilton Garden Inn would probably be preferable, but if you want something authentic from Lynchburg, stay downtown.

Stayed one night for a music event held off site (Mangia). Check in was fast and easy. Room was clean, mattress comfy and heating system was excellent....very cold night! Had drinks at bar and the lobby was busy with a Bridal Expo. Front desk recommended Taxi to Limo and they provided round trip door to door service to Mangia (fabulous Italian meal)at a reasonable fare. We walked 2 blocks to Market on Main for excellent breakfast.

Room Tip: 406 has view of pool..covered in snow

Stayed one night in February (thank God). Tired and in desperate need of an entire facelift. And I mean a gutting. Hallways are musty, lobby had no heat, rooms are well worn, grout in bathroom was multi-coloured from grime.
Staff was grat on check in but that's the only dealing I had with them. Too bad the owners don't revitalize this old hotel like the area around it is trying to do.
Good luck.

I had to work in the Lynchburg area this past week. I searched for a decent hotel, at a decent price. You can find a decent hotel but not a decent price. Or a decent price but not a decent hotel. I think that the whole city is way overpriced for what you get. Anyway, I found this hotel. It was ok, and I will stay here again when I am in the area. The problem was you have to pay for one room when you book non refundable. That is ok, but sometimes my schedule changes on a daily basis.(As I am sure many others do also) . If you don't book online, and walk in the rate for the first night is $30.00 more. Which I think is not right. The room was clean and very comfortable. It is what you expect form a Holiday Inn. There is a pool but closed due to the time of year. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant/ bar in the lobby, therefore there is no continental breakfast. You can get breakfast in the restaurant. There are lots of good local (not chains) places close by to eat. a lot you can walk to. The parking is in the city parking deck, which is included in the room price. They do allow pets, if that is an issue. Not the greatest place I have stayed, but by far not the worse either. I got a room on the top floor, it was very quite. I always try and get a higher floor so there is no one above you making noise. The elevator was fast, so you didn't have a long wait. Overall it was a nice place.
