I stopped there in my way to DC. They quoted a rate of 300 per night. When I asked why so much I was told by the nighttime receptionist that I didn’t like it to leave. She said if I wouldn’t pay the 300 to hit the door or she would call cops. Really???
I stayed the next exit at

I am sorry that you were disappointed with your experience. Despite your insinuation that we were not being truthful about the rate we quoted, this was our published rate during this special event weekend. After this situation was reported to me, I did go back and observe the security camera footage. What I observed was, at 2 AM, a man yelling and pointing his finger in an aggressive and threatening manner at our female desk clerk.. Our team has permission that if at anytime a guest or potential guest makes them feel unsafe to call our local law enforcement for backup. Perhaps your tiredness may have affected your actions, but in these times, we must take threatening postures by strangers seriously. Otherwise, I am glad that you were able to find a place for the night that met your budget requirements. Tom Osella, General Manager

I generally don't like HIE Properties but this one was great. Linens, towels both super plush. Service was amazing and they did the "usual" HIE breakfast, but the quality was way better than normal. Staff went out of their way with every detail!!

Was very surprised that the breakfast was not the normal fluffy tasteless powdered egg stuff most express hotels (sometimes the high end ones too) use and the bacon and turkey sausages were really tasty too. The egg white veg omelet was tasty and really good. Pleased to get a goo

Thanks for staying with us. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and our hot breakfast selections. I'm sorry about the fruit. I'll speak to the breakfast staff about inspecting it better before it is places out for guests. Our rate fluctuates with events in the areas such as football games or reunions at the two nearby universities or horse shows at the nearby Virginia Horse Center. We try very hard to keep our rates in line with our fellow hotels in the surrounding area. The taxes are as follows, 7% Local Lodging Tax and 5.3% Virginia State Sales Tax for a total of 12.3%. I hope you will stay with us again when in the Lexington area. Gary Purvis VP of Operations Dominion Lodging,Inc.

"Yes", we love to stay there and "No" we are not getting compensated for our strong recommendations/reviews.

All three, Lewisburg Hotel and Suites, Lexington and Charlotte Airport are relatively new or newly renovated so they all appear to have that fresh, wholesome look and f

We had a room near the lobby on the first floor, and we were awakened several times late at night. Once we heard kids screaming down the hall, and the second time, it was actually the staff at the front desk talking loudly on the phone (laughing, screaming).

Hi gjxx, Thank you for you review. I am happy you chose us for your lodging needs and acknowledged the hotel proximity through the rating your have provided. I am happy you were able to take advantage of our hotel location to the fullest. I can understand any frustrations that you must have felt due to the noise levels from our guests and hotel staff. I am sorry for the disturbance caused. We understand that providing tranquil accommodation is important and we feel your dismay. Please know that this is not the typical experience from our hotel, as such, I forwarded your feedback to our upper management for upgrades on sound insulation. Again, thank you for making us aware as we value your visit. I hope that we will have the honor to welcome you again one day and provide you a more relaxing stay. Best, Zel N. Case Manager IHGService
