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...

Dear Glen&Isobel, Thank you for your nice comments. I am glad you were pleased with the efficiency of checking in and out as well as the breakfast. We just rolled out a new bolder coffee selection this month. I hope it is more to your liking. Tom Osella, General Manager

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...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. You gave a couple of nice tips to other travelers regarding our convenience and the nice selection of restaurants in the downtown area. Yes, we surely are convenient to both the interstate and to the downtown area and 2 colleges. You are also right that there are many nice locally...

Dear Batia K, I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. I am sorry that we did not have bell service available upon check in, but being a limited service hotel, this is something we do not offer. If you would like to express your concerns personally with me feel free to call me at 540-463-7351 or email...

All the staff were friendly. Our bed was soft and I felt like there was a divot on one side. I greatly appreciate the paper being at my door in the am. That custom has gone by the way side at most other places.

Have stayed here twice, won't be back. Loud hotel that is overpriced for a holiday inn express way out here. The Hampton inn down the street is about the same price and a better option.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am sorry that your stay was not up to your expectations. I am sorry that you have characterized your stays as loud.

Dear Prstreck, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am sorry that you found the bed uncomfortable. I am not sure why you would be unable to get hot water in the sink at 3 A.M.? Our hot water system is engineered so that hot water circulates constantly through the building so it should be instantaneously hot. Since...

Stayed here on June 23 returning to SC from Rockville MD. No complaints about the physical property. The room was large and very clean, but this place is a pretty ordinary HIE.

I recently was in the Lexington area traveling on business and was unable to get into the Hampton Inn as they were booked and the only Hilton property I'm aware of in the area.

Thanks for staying with us and for the review. Ms. Grace is a sweetheart and loved by everyone. We are quite fortunate to have her a part of our family.
