Worst Hotel ever

When I went to check in, the hotel was so filthy that I couldn't stay there. When I made the complaint, the manager wasn't worried about my experience, he just wanted to argue about my payment.

Good Value for Expensive Weekends

We stayed here during Parents Weekend at VMI when all the hotels in Lexington jack the rates way up. We stayed here because nothing else was available but were very pleasantly surprised. The rate for this weekend of $64 a night was high but far lower than almost anything else in town. The beds were firm, the room had a small fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board, and hair dryer. The fridge worked well and kept our stuff very cold, TV and WiFi were fine, shower had decent water pressure. The room was comfortable, not fancy (cinderblock walls, no paintings, but who cares?). It doesn't look like much but we were very satisfied and recommend this place if you're trying to save money on a weekend visit. Location is great - it's less than 5 minutes to anywhere in Lexington and right on the Hwy 11 bypass. Only real drawback was dim interior lighting.

It is what it is.

Hotel is what you pay for. Beds were clean but hotel probably hasn't had any work on it since it was built circa 1970. Quick and easy to get to.

W&L Parents weekend

This was my stay as I visited my son at school. The manager and staff were pleasant and nice to deal with. The facility was fairly well maintained and clean. Overall comfortable room. Location is not bad, not too far removed from everything. For the level of accomodation, this was overall a good experience.

Just behind the hotel up on the hill is Kenny's Burgers a quaint local burger joint. Not fancy, but a local tradition and good food, cheap.

Not bad for the price

We needed a last minute place to sleep and there were no vacancies at any of the higher rated hotels in the area. The room was a little shabby but the bedding was clean. For $40 you can't expect much more. If you're a bargain traveler this place is worth a look. If you need more than basic amenities, you'll want to look elsewhere.

If you need a cheap place to stay...

this is it. Nice couple runs the place. Hotel is old and in need of renovation. Pretty clean, nothing fancy. Some rooms are better than others. Inexpensive and one gets exactly what they pay for. If you don't mind a fixer-upper...I dig the price and location.

Only stay as a last resort.

The check-in process was pretty easy. They had put me in the incorrect room concerning the bed. Went back to advise them of this....and it was corrected without issue. When I got my correct room, the hear was not on.....to the point that the floor was even cold. I turned the heat on and it took about 1.5 hours to get the room somewhat comfortable. The bed was dressed well however the mattress was very hard. Due to the original room temperature , under the covers was even freezing cold. I actually left this motel even though I was really tires. The price definitely match the quality of this motel. It really sucked.
