Auburn Game Weekend

This was the only hotel available. Sink in room backed up during the night bringing up nasty water. If its the only hotel available then its not the worst place I have ever stayed, but only stay here as a last resort.

fine for a quick visit to Auburn University

Needed a hotel room while on business at Auburn University. Hotels closer to campus were already booked, but Auburn is pretty small so it was not far from Clarion Inn to campus. The hotel is conveniently located next to a shopping center with a Winn-Dixie in case you need a late-night snack. Rooms are breezeway-style with all doors opening to the outside walkways. Unfortunately the walkways are also the smoking area for smokers staying in a nonsmoking room, so when you leave your room you might find yourself in a cloud of your next-door-neighbors' cigarette smoke (as I did). Very basic, no-frills breakfast. Not bad if this is the only option in town, but I have a feeling that some other properties in Auburn would be nicer. Very friendly staff.

Well below standard

First, this is a motel with room access only from the outside; not a hotel as I was expecting. This was troubling to realize upon arrive especially since it is located is an unsafe area with little reason to feel secure. Crowd and people active right outside my door until well after mid-night. TV was below standard but workable. I did not take a shower the next morning since there was no soap anywhere in the bathroom - non in the shower area and non at the sink. Worst and most unsafe place I've stayed in 30 years. Way overpriced for so little value.

Not bad

Just stayed one night. Very convenient to Auburn campus, but not too expensive. The free breakfast was pretty good for being free. It was a hot breakfast, at least, and not just pure continental style.

Stay if its the only option otherwise look again

Didn't expect too much knowing it was a 2 star. But have experienced other 2 stars that give the property more detail. The grounds could use some renovation. The pathways are dirty and dark. The room was dingy. Could use new furniture and carpet. There was an old liquid stain dried up in the carpet and felt icky as you stepped on it barefoot so only did that once; wore shoes thereafter. The beds were comfortable though. And there was your usual breakfast included with the hotel. I would only stay here again if it was only option for overnight stay. More nights than that and I would go out of my way to find better accommodation.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Crepe Myrtle Cafe is a short drive or walk from this hotel and has a good selection of pastries besides crepes for breakfast or lunch located within the grounds of a nursery.

Decent Football Game Hotel

A five plus minute cab ride to campus (a little too far to walk). But probably the best part of the hotel was the shuttle / taxi service they use. There was always a van waiting to take us to campus (stadium, restaurants and bars) and they were there within 5 minutes when we called for a ride back. As for the hotel itself, it had 4 walls a roof, a tv, bathroom and two beds...

Basic hotel

Overall good experience for the price and availability on a crowded weekend. Bathroom had peeling paint and was not as clean as it could have been.

Great Educational Oportunity

My Granddaughter plans to to to Auburn University School of Veterninary Medicine. We attended Vet day sponcered by the school for future students. The Lexington Hotel Was very nice. I was somewhat disapointed with the room as it has been awhile since the last update. It was clean. The front desk people were very forthcoming with information we inquired about. We were made to feel welcome from the first time we walked through the door. I would have liked to have had something besides Chineese dinning. 1. The food was not very good 2. VERY expensive. Also the waitress did not appear to be experienced. We had to ask for everything from napkins to the bill. I will stay at the Lexington again when I go back to Auburn. The price was right. The next time, I will ask for ground floor. I have a heart condition and the second fllor was almost more than I could handle.

Good hotel for partying not much else

Room was dank and musty smelling. Key CArd to unlock door did not work most of the time. Had to use cleaning ladies. Interior of room was ok but paint was pealing off the in the tub and shower area. Bathroom had a light fragrant smell of sewer. Personnel at the front desk were pleasant and kind. Room had no insulation from sound. If one was in the bath room you could hear the conversation of the room next door quite clearly. The door to the outside was not sealed and one could hear most everything going on outside and even across the court.

This is not one that I would recommend to a casual person. Good for College age kids but not much more.
