Holiday Inn Express Lynchburg
Ranked #12 of 23 Hotels in Lynchburg
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

The jelly: ( sweet) : every employee was sweet, accommodating and wanted your stay to be primo! Everyone welcomed you, offered to be assistance. We were given extra towels by the housekeeper upon arrival to the room, as she noticed we were checking in with 4, but rooms had only 3 towels. Had choices of pillows- hard or soft. Linens and towels were clean, neatly placed. The room was neat, and the housekeeper seemed to take pride in what she had control over-

Breakfast was good, hot, Many choices-

The sticky peanut butter: upon entering the building- the looming smell if stale smoke was noticeable, very noticeable-

The room: water was inconsistent running hot and cold - mostly cold- brrr! Room had 2 queen beds.. (The following observations were not due to basic housekeeping.)The room must have had a dog ( or a few dogs) stay there. The room smelled like damp dog, and there were stains in the carpet- the stairwell carpet was worn, the rubber edging was stretched on the end of stair. I was worried about catching the heel of my shoe, while taking the stairs. The outside pool was across the parking lot. It was small! Since you have to cross the parking lot to access it, didn't really appear too kid friendly.
Beds were very hard. You could hear the people through walls. Hotel was similar in price ( actually 10.00 more) as other hotels, got good reviews, offered queen beds- thought it would be good for an overnight. Owner needs to put money in cleaning or replacing carpets, better mattresses, updating the overall look, etc.. If pet friendly, should designate those rooms for pet owners- just as smoking/ non designated.
The staff really deserve kudos for being so awesome- they definitely outshine the owner and the owner's interest/ investment in the hotel. (Like... you can't blame the waitress for the cook's lack of abilities)

We recently stayed at this hotel while in Lynchburg to visit Liberty University. It was challenging to find, but once we did, it worked out very well. The price was reasonable for the area, breakfast was quite fine, and it was more convenient to lots of places than we realized. Staff was very friendly; room was fine (bed a bit uncomfortable/hard, but otherwise fine); all seemed clean. We'd stay again if the price is still the same. We weren't the only ones who had some trouble finding the hotel at first, so you might call ahead for tips on how to find them. Once we knew the best places to turn in town, it was easy!

I traveled to Lynchburg recently for a family reunion. My room was clean, quiet, and very comfortable. The staff was courteous and friendly. HIE was convenient to tourist attractions, restaurants, and shopping. The complimentary breakfast was great--plenty of choices, fresh, and the friendly staff kept all the dishes full and the counters clean. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Traveled to Lynchburg for my nephew's wedding in April of 2014. The hotel was clean and well kept although could use some updating. The staff was helpful except when the wifi wasn't working. They appeared fairly clueless and said they would get someone on it and call me when they either had an answer or it was resolved. I never got that call. All in all through the hotel was fairly quiet. We had bus loads of college baseball players on our floor, boys will be boys, but the noise level in the wall was pretty acceptable. Had breakfast in the reastaurant that was very good and felt home cooked. Free parking was convenient and located right next door.

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. The hotel is very, very clean and the bed was comfortable. A hot breakfast is provided every day with a staff that is pleasant and eager to accommodate everyone. The location is convenient to local sites that we were visiting... Appomattox Courthouse, Poplar Forest, and The D-Day Memorial. It's also convenient for shopping and local restaurants.

We stayed at this hotel on a graduation weekend. It was a factory, but the staff get a good job. Because it was a graduation weekend, the prices were astronomical. Prices were good, breakfast was basic, rooms were clean but a little small. It would not be my first choice, but I would stay again in a pinch.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor if you want a quiet room.

As a disclaimer, every hotel in Lynchburg was booked due to graduations. We got the last room at this HI Express.

The EMPLOYEES WERE GREAT! However, this HI Express facility was not up to par. It is in need of renovations; at least in the room we were assigned on the first floor near the lobby. There was an odor in the hall and in the room. However, this could be because the halls and lobby were crowded due to graduation celebrations. The sheets were clean; however, the blanket and cover did not appear to be freshly laundered; the a/c was noisy; the mini-refrig. rattled continuously; and, the carpets need to be cleaned or replaced. The complimentary breakfast was mediocre.

There was a major concern concerning guests not using the tongs and touching the food with their fingers and replacing the item on the tray and selecting another. I reported this and the manager will be making changes.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room above first floor and mid-way down the hall which will be more quiet as it wil...
