Place looked very cleaned. Bottom of toilet bowl was dirty only saw when I was getting out of the shower. Hot breakfast was nice. During COVID I’ve been receiving a bag of H20, muffin I didn’t like, apple or granola bar. So hot breakfast was nice. I do wish they’d give milk for tea outside of breakfast. Not everyone is a coffee drinker.

Traveling south from Frederick,Maryland, I decided I was getting a bit tired despite the late start and pulled off the road to get a decent meal and some rest. On a whim I decided to get a room at the Hampton Inn adjacent to Lexington's historic district so I could stretch my legs with a nice walk to an array of restaurants. I was quite pleased with what I saw driving in despite the detour caused by road work. The lobby and dining room are housed in an Antebellum Period mansion. It appears the grounds and room annexes were built in the 1960s due to their scale and layout; possibly a privately owned "mom and pop" establishment early on. The property has been upgraded with brick veneers and new interiors. The quality of the rooms are top notch despite the old-school exterior access. The grounds are well maintained and feel very safe. There is a small pool (no diving), with an adjacent kiddy pool which is another tell-tale sign of the "motel's" early beginning. When do you ever see a shallow kiddy pool anymore? The walk to the restaurant took a mere 9 minutes through a safe and well maintained area adjacent to the college's fraternity row. See the write up of my dining experience in another post. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet. I had a great night's sleep. The next morning I made it to breakfast around 7:30. Despite the variety of offerings, I went with the scrambled eggs and hickory smoked sausage with the biscuts and sawmill gravy on the side. The coffee was great...but you have to search for it (hint: exit the dining room into the lobby area). The attendant was really nice and very helpful, which got her a $5 tip. The only hangup was the cost of the room....$218. Online I was seeing rates at $108. I inquired about this at the desk upon arrival and was told by the attendant that Travelocity and Hotels.com were posting misinformation and that online reservations were typically canceled. This shocked me a bit and I would have debated heavily but I was tired and really needed to go to the bathroom...so I dropped it and conceded. I do think the attendant was new and did not realize she was blatantly ripping me off. On my way back through Lexington I will attempt a third-party reservation and see what happens. All in all, my experience was fine and I would be willing to make this hotel a regular stop when in town.

Clean, convenient check in and check out. Large tv. Everything worked! Awesome proximity to colleges (VMI). Loved the virtual check in and virtual key from my phone. Beds were comfortable. Four pillows in each bed.

I have stayed at this hotel twice before, the last time being two years ago. The room left things to be resolved, Stick on molding coming off wall, the air diverter cracked in two and the room just wasn't up to par. Except for service animals this hotel bills itself as "no pets allowed". This is not the case and I saw several dogs coming into the hotel which were not service animals. I don't sleep in hotels where animals are permitted and this was a big turn-off for me. I will not stay here again. Many individuals did not wear masks, a big turn-off for me.

This is the most beautiful Hampton Inn we have ever seen. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this former Governor’s Mansion. The location is great. There are many room options available. Due to the snowy weather we could not fully enjoy the experience, but we hope to return at some point. My only suggestion would be to replace the mattresses that have become saggy.
