Lovely old main building and grounds, and well maintained. Most of the rooms in the motel section are rather ordinary- but clean and very satisfactory... What you would expect from a Hampton Inn. Not upscale, but reliable, peaceful (unless it's a reunion weekend at W&L or VMI)! Nice walk to town.

I've missed this gem many times over the past two years, just stopping at other Hampton Inns because they fit my itinerary better. I am a Hilton Honors participant and have absolutely no problem with bringing shortcomings to the attention of leadership. There were simply NO shortcomings at this facility. It is a converted residence, with period furniture, a dining... More

Above excellent--finest Hampton Inn I've ever stayed in--the impressive setting on a hill, sorta "U-shaped " layout and grounds expanse is impressive only found in more expensive hotels--rooms are great --staff is most helpful and hospitable-- would stay there again in a second.

This Hampton Inn is in a lovely brick Colonial style historic building. They have kept some of the old features which the staff are happy to tell you about from earlier days while updating the systems so you will be comfortable. There is a small indoor pool which was refreshing after a long day of traveling. Definitely more charming than... More

This is a nice hotel with a friendly staff. The free breakfast is good and the menu changed daily during my 4-night stay. The location is close to the downtown but not within walking distance for most people. The free wifi signal was not sufficient in August 2016. Maybe it just needed to be reset. Overall, this hotel is a... More

I left an article of clothing in the room, and called to ask about it. The staff was very helpful in retrieving the item and shipping it back to me. I felt that Executive Housekeeper went beyond their duties to help, and it's much appreciated.

We were attending a family wedding west of Lexington and this is our favorite place to stay. Easy walk to some good restaurants and bars. A very short walk to an ABC and grocery store to fix a nice evening cocktail in our room. The only disappointment is there were no glasses in the room. Only paper cups. The weather... More

We had a very nice experience in this historic setting. This Hampton Inn includes a beautiful mansion atop a hill on landscaped grounds. You get the standard quality of a Hampton Inn with lots of added charm. The staff was friendly but not too knowledgeable about the local area.

A nice hotel, and out second visit, but we choose the manor house again, not knowing the rooms were so different, and we didn't feel the walk up the stairs only were worth the extra money, for the room available, the one lady who checked us in, told me the downstairs room was available for one night, and when we...

This is a Hampton the likes of which I have not encountered before, it is lovely! We had rooms in the historic house and not the main new block and both rooms were well worthy of a top flight boutique hotel, very spacious, great furnishings and aircon that you had to look for to see where it 'blowed', cunningly hidden...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In June of 1997 the tradition of Col Alto was reborn as it opened its doors once again to welcome visitors to the City of Lexington. Step onto the beautiful grounds of the Hampton Inn Lexington-Historic District hotel and be mesmerized. You'll find our breathtaking historic manor house-the Col Alto Mansion-nestled on seven acres. Stay in one of the 76 rooms featuring contemporary touches or one of the 10 restored manor rooms offering a glimpse into the past. Take a short walk and you'll discover Washington and Lee University. While there, be sure to see the historic landmark Lee Chapel and Museum. Pay respects at the cemetery named for 'Stonewall' Jackson, a Confederate general during the Civil War. Visit Virginia Military Institute, one of six senior military colleges in the United States. Hungry or in need of some retail therapy? Take a stroll down to Main Street to find lots of wonderful, locally-owned restaurants and unique shops. Or if you prefer, take a scenic drive down the road and you'll discover the beauty of nature at Natural Bridge, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Enjoy your stay in our Historic Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, VMI or the Washington and Lee Rooms featuring period décor within the Manor House with wine and hors d'oeuvres served upon arrival, breakfast served in-room, evening turndown service, and terrycloth robes or relax in our contemporary guest rooms and accessible rooms featuring a refrigerator and microwave. All rooms feature a 37-inch LCD HDTV with cable channels, lap desk and free Wi-Fi, and many rooms offer a wet or dry bar. Enjoy complementary hot breakfast in the manor house overlooking the grounds or perhaps a dip in the outdoor pool or whirlpool spa on a beautiful day. Get lost in time when you stay at the Historic Hampton Inn Col Alto. Located 8 miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Within walking distance to Historic Downtown Lexington, Washington & Lee University, Virginia Military Institute and minutes from Natural Bridge, Goshen Pass and McCormick Farm. ... more   less
