We stayed here one night. Bed was clean but bathroom was awful. Rooms were very musty and the window was so dirty you could not see out. If you have a choice as we did not go anywhere else.LClean but drains in tub and sink were so slow they took hours to drain. Staff friendly but not keeping up with... More

We were coming off the Blue Ridge Parkway last weekend when a pickup trunk swerved into our lane and took off our rearview mirror and scratched our car. After waiting an hour for the police to arrive because the truck driver appeared to have no assurance of insurance coverage and another half hour for them to process it, we opted... More

Right after opening the door, a wave of a horrible scent hit our faces. Spider webs all over the walls and the walls were dirty. Beds were dirty and when I turned the shower on, the water was BLACK and we had to ask for our money back and ended up staying at the Super 8 which was about 1... More

Unfortunately we stumbled across this hotel late at night, we were passing through and didn't have the energy to go elsewhere. This hotel earns the distinction of worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Dirty, dusty carpets; stained upholstered chairs & curtains; dirty, scuffed walls and floorboards, bathroom last remodeled approximately 50 years ago; no batteries in smoke detectors ( I... More

We had to stay in this hotel because of a power outage at home. There are no amenities whatsoever. Its basically a cheap "roadside" motel, only intended for very small stays (3 days or less). If their is any other hotel available in Lexington, choose that one.

First I will tell you the positves; cheap, good location to town, fridge & microwave and comfortabe beds. Now for the negatives and reasons I would advise you stay anywhere else; old and not kept up, wooden beams holding up ceiling tiles, old electric fixtures not working, got locked out of our room and was told once they finally got...

For a single person, $55 per night for a room with two full-size beds. Friendly staff. Good fridge. Decent internet (can watch streaming movie). No coffee maker. Marginal towels. A little off the beaten path. The location works well for me, but I would stay elsewhere otherwise.

Not only did the staff charge $20 more than advertised ($60 for a room as opposed to $40), but the room was beyond dirty and the shower curtain was covered in mold. They refused to offer a refund and were very rude when confronted with the conditions of the room. One of the beds was broken and was on a... More

Stayed 3 nights. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Nice older motel with real tile bathroom. Not fancy. The staff remade my bed and placed the extra pillow I took from the other bed on top - a nice touch.

This place was pretty bad. I travel ALOT and know what to expect from a hotel. I've stayed in worse places, but not many. The place was expensive. The room I had was meant for 2 beds. At some point, they had removed one of the beds leaving the headboard still attached to the wall. The paneling was coming off... More
