Stayed for 2 nights at this very historic Inn. We stayed in the King suite. If you like old buildings, rich in history, you will like this hotel. Old building, but rooms are modern and comfortable, with keeping historic material and feel.

Stayed at the Craddock Terry when travelling on business. The most remarkable thing was SERVICE!!!! The staff was extremely nice and bent over backward to make sure everything was perfect. The hotel is a renovated shoe warehouse, and offers views of the James River. The renovation is exquisite. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay!!!

My husband and I took a mini staycation here. I've heard about the amazing rooms and service. Our room was on the second floor and had a beautiful king bed, a very comfy sofa and chair, plus a desk and sort of "sideboard" food service cabinet, with frige and Keurig, but no microwave (the lack of microwave was an issue...

We've now stayed at the Craddock Terry numerous times and it is always a joy. The hotel itself is beautiful -- it's an old shoe factory with amazingly high ceilings and huge wood beams. The staff is so welcoming and even helped me find an incredible local cake baker for a recent birthday party. There's a great restaurant within the...

The right pair of shoes can change your whole attitude. So can the right hotel. No matter how many times we stay at the Craddock Terry, we always vow to return again -- soon. The main building of the hotel was built as an annex to the Craddock Terry Shoe factory. By keeping the exposed wood beam ceilings, brick and...

Our stay here was such a treat! Everything seemed very clean which is most important to me. We were able to eat downstairs while there in the attached restaurant. Breakfast was served in a special bag right to our room in a wooden shoe box. This hotel also overlooks the river, so it adds a lot of character. Would definitely...

Love downtown Lynchburg and the Craddock Terry Hotel for a great dinner and night away from home! Fabulous service, delicious restaurants and bars and comfy beds make for a wonderful stay. I love all the pretty decor and the unique homage to the history of the shoe factory. Can't wait to stay again soon!!

We for only one night as we were in town for a quick business trip. The hotel was amazing and the history of the hotel itself just added to the experience.
