Request rooms on bottom floor on South side. Stairways and N side of motel not well lit. Complimentary bfast only available if you're up by 6:30am; nothing left by 7:30am although it's available until 9:00am.
When I pulled the sheets back on one of the beds old dried food fell out. There was mold on the sheets and blanket from that food. One of the chairs had lots of mold on the seat. Absolutely no excuse for this. We will never stay at a Lexington Inn again.
Drove over 800 miles to this rural town to pick up a puppy from a breeder. She suggested this place.Thank God her breeding skills are better than hotel picking skills. We arrived early evening, was told by the desk clerk (Sristi) that she had no ground floor rooms because a large party had recently booked. So we climbed the stairs to our room, number 211. Now, I have travelled 2/3 of this country and the world. I do not expect 5 star accomodations at low cost places. All I really expect is cleanliness and hot water and in the USA, I expect air conditioning that works properly or heat if it is cold. So, the only good news is that Sristi (you will know her immediately as she is tiny but strong), is really kind and efficient. Bad news is, she may be the only thing in the hotel working properly. Worst news is the place is not clean. Either you are clean or you are dirty.The tub had encrusted drops of soap and shampoo on the inside that wouldn't even come off when scrubbed.(how long has it been on there?) When you took some toilet paper and bent over and rubbed the white tiles, the paper turned brown. My wife stepped on the edge of the carpet where the bathroom area tile meets the carpet and the tackless that holds the carpet down was coming through to puncture her toes. Thats a nice infectious trap given the condition of the tile. The air conditioning thermostat is a joke. Forget setting a temperature. The air came on for 15 or so minutes then off for the same amount of time. The place got warm then it got cold. My wife woke up twice, once sweating and once freezing. All this and the fragrant smell of mildew too! We reported it but nothing could be done. Since the parking lot never got more than 40% full, I guess the big party either was fiction or came, saw the rooms and left, smarter than us. I am quite sure this is the worst review I have ever written, but I promised Sristi I was going to do it, as dirtiness is unforgivable in that business as well as the food business. And no, because of the dirt, we did not want to try the free breakfast buffet, can't imagine how the germ count was on those surfaces. Turns out there are lots of other hotels in the area that are a few bucks more. I would have gladly paid it for a clean, air conditioned safe place.
The entire Hammond staff was friendly and courteous. A special mention to Sristi at the front desk who greeted me at check in, she was friendly, engaging, courteous and helpful. After a long drive from NJ to Hammond it was nice to be greeted by such friendly folks. The buffet breakfast was excellent. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
Hotel room was clean and accommodating. Staff was polite and quick to answer questions. Only issues were the breakfast tasted like cardboard. (Square eggs) and the pool was filled with leads and other debris and was not skimmed or cleaned at all through my 4night stay
Our room was clean and on the first floor as we requested. I only had breakfast once. By the time I arrived in the dining area at 850, everything was being put away, and the waffle iron turned off. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and sweet, and so were the maids.
We had reservations with a confirmation number for the 18 of march. Upon arriving this motel had neither the rooms are confirmation number. Tried to give us what was left and it was not good. Don t stay here.
I stayed here two nights within 8 days, at the beginning and near the end of a trip. Both times I had a great room, that was very clean and everything worked. The internet worked well also. The staff was quite pleasant both times I was there and willing to accommodate a couple of reasonable requests cheerfully. The breakfast was better than most on my trip. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!
Room 112 has neither a lock nor a smoke alarm. The doors appear never to have been wiped down; they are grubby with fingerprints. The breakfast is from 6-9, with a waffle maker, pastries, cereal and eggs, but the eggs are oddly square. The furniture is falling apart. In all, I was very disappointed and will not stay here again. The beds were adequate and the staff was friendly.
I left a fair review but since learned our credit card was charged, our daughters credit card was charged and fema was charged. They took an additional $ 750.00 and say they did not. They took $420 and 135 also. The room was perfect and clean and we got our deposite back when we left for our yorkies. These charges came a week after we left. The banks have processed our refused use. Do not trust them with your credit card, they are dishonest and told us to drive there 75 miles if we want to discuss it . Really!!! Shame on you! Do not use your credit cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are allowing drunks and smokers to hang outside the door of a non smoking room, I am sick with my heart and they could not move us downstairs.
