Based on others reviews, we recently stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Select over Spring Break. The moment you walk into the Lobby you realize that this hotel should not be compared to the average Holiday Inn. Very spacious, light and airy with a most professional (but not stuffy)staff. We got a deserved feeling of pride in the hotel from the Front Desk staff. The hallways and rooms were very clean & fresh. The beds were comfortable with duvets and the double sheeting that is now the standard in the more upscale hotels. Pillows were plentiful but only standard in quality.
We had dinner & breakfast in the restaurant and were able to take advantage of the "Kids eat Free" both times. Again, nice service & ambience and we enjoyed both meals. I considered the breakfast buffet in the morning but it lacked eggs or other hot entree the day I was there. So I ordered off the menu and was pleased as the breakfasts were reasonably priced and very tasty. Again, the wait staff was both professional and friendly.
Exercise room was only disappointment, 2 threadmills but neither was working. Other equipment seemed a little worn but was still able to use the universal and life cycle. Rooftoop pool isn't open until May or June (kids were sad about this.)
We got an excellent rate but I'd gladly pay in the $120-150 for this level of hotel in a small city like Lynchburg & would probably pay nearly twice that much in larger cities. We would definately stay again if ever in Lynchburg.
