Travelers' Choice
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.

Stayed here while passing thru to Florida. The grounds were beautiful, not your typical Hampton Inn. It was close to shops and restaurants. Room was very clean. Checkin and checkout was great with the Hilton app. Especially with COVID. Would stay here again. Really liked area.

Hotel's Favorite
I stayed at this Hampton Inn on a recent getaway weekend to Lexington VA and surrounding area. Because of COVID, the place was empty but it was a really unique facility, having been incorporated an historic home built in the 1830s as the lobby and there’s a log cabin adjacent to the hotel which can be used for events (presumably in non pandemic times). The rooms are large and clean and many overlook a courtyard and pool. Hotel is just a 10 minute walk from a cute downtown area with restaurants and shops and short drive to Natural Bridge. If you like the dependability of a chain hotel but want one that’s a little unique, this is would be the place.

We love staying at the Hampton Inn as it's not your normal motel/hotel. The lobby is in a Victorian style house with grand sitting rooms and hardwood floors. There is a 250+ year old tree in the garden along with a log cabin on the back of the property. The rooms are very nice.

Almost everything about this hotel was great. The location was a short walk to downtown. The ground were immaculate and very quiet. The small balcony was delightful (though a second chair would be nice). The old preserved cabin was nice to visit (outside anyway). The staff were friendly. The price was right. BUT, why try and fit queen sheets on a king bed?

What a great place to stay for one or two nights when visiting VMI. So very close to the school, free wifi and free breakfast. The rooms are clean and the grounds are beautiful. We saw several deer when we walked at dusk
