“Good Value for Horse Center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I love the breakfast here when I know I have to get up and go feed my horse- but this trip, the breakfast was bare. Out of coffee, out of pastries, out of breads, out of milk, etc.

The room was large and clean. I was on the end of floor 1, which was a little noisey.

I was disappointed with the cleanliness of the hotel room. The reservation process was wonderful, the woman who checked us in was great and extermely helpful, however as we approached the door to enter the hotel, there was food on the ground covered in ants and had been there for a while according to the way it looked. The hall was clean enough, nothing outstanding but completely acceptable. When we entered our room though we were a bit disappointed. There was a musty smell and the bathroom needed a lot of attention. the non-skid shower mat was discusting and curled up and dirty. I was fearful to step in the shower or onto the carpet. There were things on the walls in the shower and small holes in the wall along with horrible water pressure.

The carpet was a bit sticky also. However, the bed was very clean and comfortable. The pillows were nice and fluffy and if this rating were off the bed only it would be an outstanding rating, but the tv was dirty, the remote was gross and the airconditioner needed to be cleaned.
Further when we left on Saturday the same food was still on the ground outside of the door. Someone should have been able to clean it up by then.

Before visiting H.J. on I-81 near Lexington, VA., I read reports on-line which stated that it was rated second best hotel in Lex. That must have been an election year advertisement..."doesn't have to be true." The followup seach about H.J. spoke of an exercise room and an outdoor pool. Because I am a divemaster candidate and need regular exercise, I decided H.J. would do just fine. Due to high altitude cool nights, the pool was closed, so the workout room would have to provide my conditioning. The workout room was both useless and out of service. The room safe did not work and they couldn't fix it. If you are attending horse show functions or one of the local college functions, drive on past H.J. I did get a long hot shower while pretending to dive the tropics!

Room Tip: lack experience

The room was great. Cozy & comfortable. Good selection of tv channels. Breakfast just was not up to par.
