“Great Free Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

While we usually stay at the Hilton Garden Inn while traveling to Lynchburg, we decided to try the La Quinta this time. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The lobby area is large and contemporary and the free breakfast offers many choices including fresh Belgian Waffles, hot entrees, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and pastries among other options. If I had to complain about anything, it would be the lack of good strong lighting and no ottoman with the easy chair. However, the bed was very comfortable and the room had a refrigerator. The monetary savings between La Quinta and the Hilton is definitely worth the smaller bathroom, lower lighting and lack of a foot stool. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Hotel is pet friendly and it seems that most pets are on the Lower Level near the laundry. I would...

Passing through Lynchburg on a recent road trip. Not too many hotel options in the area so opted for La Quinta. I have stayed at other locations which have always proved good value for the money. 1 room single person at $116.00 on a Tuesday in mid-April seemed to me a bit expensive. There is nothing particularly extravagant about this hotel or Lynchburg in general so I don't understand the price. I wouldn't choose to stay here again and would have kept driving if I wasn't already exhausted. If you are a business traveler they have nice facilities catering to you and fast internet. Hotel would be good for families. Just a bit too high priced for single traveler.

After driving four hours from Maryland to attend funeral services the next day, I was very happy to have reservations at the La Quinta Inn & Suites Lynchburg at Liberty Univ. ALL of the staff were very welcoming and pleasant & my check in was very quick and painless. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It was clean, quit, the staff was very professional and accommodating to my needs.

We stayed at La Quinta for four nights while we attended the 150 Anniversary Ceremony of Lee's Surrender at Appomattox. The hotel was immaculate, beds were comfortable, and rooms were spacious. Although the hotel was full, it was pin-drop quiet -- no noise through the walls here. Breakfast was excellent, with a wide variety of choices. Josephine, the staff member who presided, made me look forward to breakfast. She was amazingly efficient, and always charming and helpful. She is a gem --management needs to be sure no one steals her away!! If there was one negative, it is that bathrooms are tiny. But that is beyond the control of the helpful people who made our stay the pleasant experience it was.

We participated in the National Park Service observation of the 150th anniversary of R.E. Lee's surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia to Union Gen. U.S. Grant. Various personal health issues precluded me from camping in the field with our artillery unit. I chose this hotel because of its relative proximity to Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. The hotel staff was, without exception, very accommodating and pleasant. I believe many of their staff are students at Liberty University...literally just across the street! For a "bargain" hotel this inn was pleasant, safe & clean.

It has been years since I have stayed at a La Quinta Inn. If all of their properties are like this one I will have to consider them more often. The entire grounds, lobby and room were well maintained, clean and nicely appointed. The bed was comfortable. TV was great. The widest array of channels that I've seen in a motel. The Wi-fi was free and fast. I got down stairs too late for the free breakfast but judging by the faces of the guests that ate, it was ok. My only complaint has nothing to do with the motel but the area, the price. I felt $130 was a little steep for a motel but it was in the same ball park as other motels in the area.

The staff was amazing
breakfast was fantastic

Location is very central to everything. I grew up in this town and didn't realize this is so central to everywhere.

The staff really cares and goes well above and beyond.

Bathrooms are a little small, but that is the only minor thing I had any issue with.
