The hotel didn't have that freshly updated looked nor did the room. It was clean but didn't have that "fresh, clean feeling". It was really dated. Personally, it just felt less than fresh but after thoroughly checking the bed & room, we stayed because we had been driving for 12 hours. The upside was that the staff was very friendly...

Dear JeriWinstead, Thank you for your honest comments. I am sorry that you were disappointed. My honest response is that yes, we do need updating. We should be starting our renovation this winter. We look forward to adding the new design elements that Holiday Inn Express has been developing. We are excited that we will be able to offer an...

Wife and I took a fall overnight trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains to explore and see the fall leaves. Stayed here and found the place clean, bed comfy, and breakfast filling. We had stopped at a State of VA rest area and had picked up some guide/info pamphlets and used a coupon for a cheaper stay. All in all...

Good service, clean room and clean laundry room, too, Basic self-serve breakfast, and that’s OK. Nearby to restaurants and we arrived in town late, so that was handy. We learned that if there is a big function at nearby VMI the hotel can fill up, so the good advice is, plan ahead.

This is a really nice hotel, though I didn't have a good start at the front desk. Told that I had no reservation, I produced my confirmation. "You do have a reservation," she told me, "At the HIE in Lexington, Nebraska." Apparently, it happens quite a lot. But she found us a good large room looking out over lawns and...

Wonderful stay at this hotel. Thanks to front desk person Shavon, when an online booker messed up our booking and all the rooms in town were full, she somehow made a special arrangement to accommodate us. She was very friendly, professional, concerned for our needs and worked everything out. We were so thankful and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The other...

Only stayed for one night. Check-in and check-out were both easy and friendly. The room was comfortable, clean and generally quiet. The free breakfast was fine. Nothing stunning but there was a good selection of pastries and bread. Hot selection wasn't bad. Coffee wasn't stunning but better than some up market hotels. Saves time looking for a place to eat...

So there aren't many hotels right downtown in Lexington, and those that are tend to be expensive. This HIE is just fine and really only 2-3 minutes from town. The room was clean and it was quiet. Breakfast was adequate though nothing to write home about. There is an Applebee's in the parking lot if you really don't want to...
