I expected more. Rooms were definitely clean which is very important. But bathroom had ordinary plastic tub... not a nice shower. Check in staff not helpful or all. One of them could not even manage Complementary breakfast was good. Coffee also very good. Not a bad place..but not really worth the price.

Hampton Inn has restored the previous Governors mansion, Col Alto- a beautiful, elegant federal treasure. In addition to regular rooms you may be lucky enough to stay in one of the historic rooms. I recommend paying the slightly higher rate to do this. The mansion has a wonderful group of staff that know how to take care of the weary traveller. This hotel is on the outskirts of Lexington, a cute town just off highway 81.

Main building was quaint but not particularly functional. This is the price one pays for staying in an historical building. The front desk staff was slow and despite arriving at 5PM for a reservation made months ago, our room wasn't ready.

Lexington, Virginia is a wonderful town. There is a lot of history. In an easy walk to downtown is the Hampton Inn. The centerpiece is an antebellum house that serves as the reception area and breakfast area. It is like stepping back in time. The rooms are not in the home but attached. The rooms are good sized and clean. I highly recommend the Hampton Inn in Lexington

We stayed for one night in Lexington. Nice hotel and friendly staff. Room was clean and comfy. Wish there was more seating available for breakfast as I saw people having to stand and eat. Otherwise, no other negatives. The registration building and where breakfast is served is very beautiful and not typical of a Hampton Inn. Worth the stay if you are visiting the Natural Bridge attractions.

This hotel is a gem -- built around a brick mansion from early 1800s, only 3 blocks from downtown Lexington. Reception, breakfast, and some guest rooms are in original house, with most rooms in a connected L (also brick). Our room was in the wing -- spacious, quiet, with a covered balcony overlooking the small pool and jacuzzi. We stay in Hampton Inns frequently, this is definitely the nicest we've seen. Great base for a visit to historic Lexington!

I was very hesitant to stay at any Hamton Hotels after a very unpleasant stay at the Hamton Hotel in Rhode Island. However, my trip became an unexpected last minute overnight trip and the Hamton was the first available hotel off the highway late at night. Luckily, I had a very pleasant stay at the Hampton in Virginia. The staff was very pleasant and welcoming. The hotel room was clean and comfortable.

This Hampton Inn is part of a historical landmark. The office, check in and breakfast areas are part of a mansion dating back to 1827.

Kind of unusual for a Hampton Inn being attached to an historic property. The rooms are fairly large and decently appointed. I found the mattress comfy. Breakfast was typical Hampton Inn but was served in the old section of the hotel which made it much nicer. My only beef is that the towels are pretty thin.

This is a beautiful hotel with a friendly staff and a great location to downtown Lexington. My daughter and I truly enjoyed our stay. I am not giving the full excellent rating because I felt the bathroom could have been a little cleaner where the tile and grout were. Additionally, the air conditioner was a little weird and kept cutting off in the middle of the night. We would wake up really hot, and then it would kick on and get really cold again. There was not a consistent temperature.

Most of the rooms are standard Hampton Inn rooms. Very nice, very predictable, very clean, you know what you are getting. The rooms in the old plantation house (there are maybe 6-7) are Hampton Inn rooms, too, but with the charm of the historic home they're in. Additionally, the service I received making the reservation and during the stay was excellent. The General Manager went out of his way to help me wash off my family's bicycles after getting muddy. Will return again, without a doubt.

Stayed here during a recent fraternity reunion and found it much to my liking. It is cater-corner across the street from my old fraternity house, so I might be biased regarding the location. It's five or six blocks from downtown, so it's a good option if you want to walk to town. The office is in the original 1827 house, which is just great. I like it much better than staying out north of town on U.S. 11.

Interesting Hampton Inn: An historical manor house with authentic rooms and a modern hotel situated on a beautiful site. No problems at all. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The town center with many shops and some dining is one half mile down the hill.

A great gem of a hotel! We would definitely stay here again. Not your average Hsmpton Inn. Beautiful grounds, within walks distance to town. Helpful staff, and winderful rooms. We come to Lexington often, and thus is now our #1 spot!

Nice quaint hotel close to downtown Lexington. Rooms are spacious an nice. Breakfast is good and served in a cozy room. The whole hotel has kept its feeling of a old colonial house but still modern with good technological features.

This was a nice experience in a handsome classic mansion. We will definitely plan to stay here on our next trip to the Lexington VA area and have told others about our experience at this Hampton Inn facility.

We make a special stop to visit Lexington on our trip from Florida to Rochester,NY and have stayed at this Hampton several times. We have found the service and facilities to be consistently well above average. The good news - the rates were less this year. It is not a typical Hampton design but done as a historic home and addition.

I highly recommend the Hampton Inn in Lexington. It feels like an historic home in the main part of the building, but has the excellent amenities of a brand new Hampton Inn. The service is top notch, and it is just a minute or two from W&L. Very convenient for visiting campus.

Stayed one night and it was perfect. The room was clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Breakfast was great (omelettes and seasoned potatoes). The front desk staff was very courteous and helpful. The best part of the stay was that the curtains blocked all outside light at night.

Helpful friendly staff went out of their way to accomodate the VMI parents. Great facilities and location to VMI Post. Love the outdoor balconies and porches that were available to allow socializing with our Cadet, Brother Rats and other families. Great Breakfast and nice welcome package for VMI Parents. I also love the emails we received before our stay and the emailed receipt.

Have stayed at this beautiful and unusual Hampton a number of times. Even though we stayed in the hotel rooms in the modern wing, you are able to experience the elegant old house at breakfast and for just relaxing in a parlor anytime. The house sits on an acre or two on a hill amid the trees yet is within blocks of Lexington's charming downtown. There is even a log cabin at the back of the property! Rooms are clean and well maintained and there is an attractive canopied walk to the big house fro... Read more

Stayed there Oct 12-13 while returning home from the northeast. Was blown away by this Hampton Inn. It is set on beautiful grounds in the historic section of Lexington. The rooms are clean, roomy and quiet. I would highly recommend this hotel. Not only is it beautiful, it is moderately priced too!

Great location for a couples retreat or a families getaway. We enjoyed a peaceful morning walk of the estate while drinking coffee and watched the light fog rise toward the mountains. The staff was fantastic and we enjoyed relaxing on the balcony while winding down our evenings.

We had a wonderful visit to Lexington, VA. This hotel is conveniently located to the center of town, Washington & Lee and VMI. It was clean, comfortable and the staff very accommodating. The coffee and complimentary breakfast were very good. The property is very unique. It's main building is not a typical home and a cabin sits on the property.

Usually staff was well attired and neat. Rooms were above the standard for the chain. No longer On recent visits including two within this month poorly dressed staff gave a... Read more

We were in Virginia to check out colleges for my granddaughter. We booked ahead of time finding the facility thru HHonors website. After booking, we received confirmation and hen from the actual facility we received a welcoming letter from the manager. We absolutely loved the hotel with all the historical information that went with it. The staff was helpful and continued to check in us throughout the time we were there. Wonderful breakfast and just a wonderful time while we are there.

As frequent Hampton Inn clients I have to say that this is perhaps their finest property. The location is a short 5-7 minute walk to downtown Lexington with shopping, fine dining, VMI and Washington & Lee University. Right down the street is a supermarket and some fast food restaurants if that is what you are looking for. The hotel itself is built off an early 1800??s manor house that now houses the front desk and the breakfast area. The hotel addition is a 3 level beautiful brick structure a... Read more

I was placed in a room with an exterior entranced and the noise outside my room was loud. Late at night people ran up and down the hallway. In the morning, housekeeping was slamming doors. The breakfast was lacking and poorly stocked. My bathroom was dirty. I did not expect to pay so much for a motel room with cereal for breakfast.

This was a pleasant surprise. The charm at this Inn is very good. First we received a beautiful welcome letter from Beth Keen Assistant General Manager. We did not expect this. However the Inn is the best that I have ever stayed at. The rooms are better than normal. Very clean. Good Breakfast especially the fruit. Nice and fresh. The most interesting for me was the grounds. Simply beautiful and relaxing just to walk the grounds. I took a lot of pictures. We will come back to stay again. The roo... Read more

as always the hampton had comfy beds, good flat screen, fridge microwave, 24 hour decent coffee and nice selection for breakfast (free). Wireless was a little tricky to get and stay on. also my room did not get cleaned until after 2 pm on sunday which was a drag and while cleaning was good twice, that day it was not so great, I think because cleaning staff were too rushed and busy with a full house

This is a very unique property. The main building is an historic mansion that has been converted into a Hampton Inn. The rooms are in a separate building with a covered path to the main building where the breakfast is.

What a delightful building to greet us late at night. The room was "up the ramp" which was easy to manage. very comfortable and the CUBS WON. Know that Hazleton, PA where we stopped on our way south was celebrating for the manager! Oh I digress - the breakfast was great for the starving husband and my cereal needs. I think he had waffles, eggs, two meats and a sticky bun! This was a perfect last stop before HOME!!

This is an usually nice Hampton Inn. The property is gorgeous, and the hotel itself is attached to an historic house. I had a small issue with a dusty room, but it wasn't serious enough to report--just shared it with housekeeping. If you come to Lexington, VA, this is the place to stay.

We decided to stop in this hotel, not just once but twice. We were driving down south and our little one was getting tired. The hotel is clean and decent. The continental breakfast isn't bad either. This place is a lot better than I expected. I will use this hotel from now on when we travel. The bathrooms and beds are clean. It's sad when you have to comment on those items when it should be the norm. This hotel is nice and it's pretty decently priced.

Second time staying here. It's nice, like the location, being close to downtown Lexinton. Have family in Lexington and this location is convenient. Had to wait for the price to come down a bit. Holiday Inn Express has nicer rooms, however, has worse breakfast offerings.

The lexington Hampton is in a great location and the staff is great. The rooms are average for the price. We requested for a room away from the elevators and got a room next to the stairs and the utility room. The Hampton rented a room or rooms to a work crew who went to work every morning at 6 am running up and down the stairs to the outside. The utility room had a noise coming from it at times. In all fairness to the Hampton we did not report the problem to the staff. We did request a room awa... Read more
