“Beautifully restored B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at this restored B&B. The rooms were large, very clean, nice linens and comfortable beds. The husband and wife owners were very friendly and provided information on Lexington and the surrounding area. The property has an attached restaurant that serves full meals (breakfast is included for guests) that are delicious and reasonably prices. We ate dinner at the B&B and the scallops were delicious. After touring the area I believe the Sheridan has the best food at the most reasonable price plus there is a very nice outdoor covered dining area that is private from the public streets. Yes, we would stay here again.

Traveling from Massachusetts to Florida wanted to stay around Lexington VA; made reservations in advance for a good hotel. The directions to the hotel somehow wrongly sent us to the door Sheridan Livery and it was good fate! Nice big broom, mattress and bedding was over-the-top for the price paid, free continental breakfast and a quaint, wonderful dining room - great great chef!

This Inn has the look of a bed and breakfast, but the privacy and convenience of a very nice hotel. For us it was just the right mix. The room we stayed in (#10) was spacious and very comfortable. We wanted to stay in the historic area of Lexington, and the rate was comporable to chain hotels near the interstate. Check in was painless, and the reserved parking for each unit, was a nice touch. Without hesitation, will stay here again. Lovely, lovely building, and very nice owners.

We stayed for one night whilst travelling down the skyline/blue ridge parkway. We found the inn after the recommended one in our guide book was closed, and were given a very large room. It was clean, had wifi, free breakfast, good shower and a good location close to the nice restaurants in town. The only negative for us was that the heater was very loud. It was a bit dated but still very comfortable.

My family and I stayed here for Thanksgiving. It was just what we wanted! The inn was clean and the staff friendly. Our bed was one of the most comfortable beds on which I have ever slept and the location of the hotel was perfect, right in downtown Lexington!
This might not be as "fancy" as some of the bed and breakfasts around town, but it still has its own charm and one can not beat the price.
We will tell our friends good things about the Sheridan Livery Inn and we hope to stay here again!

We stayed here 1 night on a road trip. It's a great location, right downtown Lexington. Parking is free, and they include a free continental breakfast. Our room had a small refrigertor, which was nice. As long as your expectations are such that this is an old-school B&B, then this place fits the bill. The prorprietors are very welcoming and kind. The decor is more in keeping with the times of the building. Don't expect modernity here, but it's clean, spacious, and has everything you need for a good stay. In my opinion, it was a good value (the price was right for what you get). Note: there is no elevator, so you'll need to carry your bags up the stairs (fortunately, the staircase is very wide).

I stayed at Sheridan Livery Inn in the Fall 1999, and I'm please to report that nothing has changed upon my return in the Fall of 2013! Needless to say the Sheridan has a great location, though it is in desperate need of an interior and exterior renovation.

It lacks a dedicated reception area along with front desk personal, and an archaic method of requiring the room paid in full upon check-in. Additionally, my biggest complaint is that of the use of a "actual" room key not card, mind you I was in Romania a month before and did not have to use a "actual" key once. Disclaimer, I did lose my key and was subsequently charged $20 for the infraction.

You are paying for Location that' why I stayed, and obviously not the outdated rooms, lack of service, brass keys, cones in the parking space, mini fridge on the floor, and a horribly mislabeled continental breakfast. Overall, the Sheridan could be so much more, but it's not.
