“Lots of great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We recently booked our soccer team at this hotel for a Labor Day tournament. The place was packed but it didn't phase the staff...they were consistently present and very friendly. The front desk attendant quickly offered to make sure my points were transferred to my account (I didn't have the number handy). The breakfast was really nice and they had a number of ladies that would ask how we were doing, offer to get us something or clear our plates. Super nice and friendly! The rooms were what you expect: clean, updated and with digital wall thermostats. It is close to the mall and has a drive-thru Chik-fil-A next door - all good stuff. Overall, exactly what I expect from the HIE brand!

I choose HIE because the chain is pet friendly. However recently we found more and more are not. This is a big mistake. The Downtown Lynchburg, VA hotel is not only pet friendly, but all employees seem to be extra friendly. We had help with parking (I drive a big dually truck), lugggage, room service, and directions. As our girls attended college in the city, we have made this hotel our home away from home. Many thanks to the fine folks at HIE, Lynchburg, VA.

Room Tip: Even tho the hotel is in the old downtown area, it is easy to get anywhere in the city you need. We...

We had to go to Lynchburg for an emergency visit, and had no hotel reservation. We generally stay at one of the higher end hotels, but none of them had rooms available. We stopped at the Holiday Inn Express and fortunately they had a king room available for us. It had a pull-out sofa about the size of a love seat, and it was the perfect size for our daughter. The room wasn't huge, but it was the right size for us under the circumstances. There was a nice size TV in the room and refrigerator. The room was clean. The mattresses were comfortable. The bathroom was clean with granite countertops. There was also a breakfast buffet available that included all of the basics including sausage and gravy, juice, fruit, cereal, toast, omelets, and sausage. We would definitely stay there again for a short visit. We would probably want a larger room for a longer stay, but Holiday Inn Express is perfect for a weekend stay where you probably would not be in the room for long.

My family and I were in town for a baseball tournament this past weekend and we had a wonderful stay. Our group had 9 rooms in the hotel and all were clean when we arrived. The check in process was great and the gentleman that checked us in was was very very friendly. The breakfeast staff was wonderful and they went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming in the area.

Room Tip: Groupd are always welcomed.

Having stayed here before, it was a no brainer. This is one of the nicest Holiday Inn express properties you'll find anywhere. Very clean, decent location and priced modestly.
Room A/C worked very well. Could have hung slabs of meat in there if you wanted.
Breakfast is typical Holiday Inn fare which isn't bad just typical.

I was in town for two days on business and stayed at this property. This hotel is very central for most of the Lynchburg area, adjacent to key highways and the mall area. The property is probally 15+ years old, but over all in good shape. I found my room on the small size, but it was clean, the bed in good shape, quiet and the HVAC worked well, with a fan on mode. The front desk staff was busy on check in, but recognized me as a Priority Club member. My biggest disappointment with this property was the breakfast/ dining area. The breakfast was the ususal HIE grub, and I found the breakfast area very small, crowded and difficult to navigate (a remodel is needed!). Although not a stellar property, I found this HIE okay for a short stay.

Room Tip: The front side away from the highway may help with a room without possible road noise

A renovated hotel ... not really my style. It was clean, the service was friendly yet it was and felt very crowded. Particularly the reception area ... never mind the dining area.

The room just wasn't welcoming ( broken arms on the desk chair ) ... not much care given to how the bed was presented. The b'fast food was acceptable ... only bananas for fresh fruit. HIE has stepped back from prior offerings. The small dining area was surprising.
