I chose to stay at this hotel because of its location to downtown and the better restaurants while in Lynchburg on business. The lobby is extremely nice and the staff during check in were wonderful - polite, helpful and fast. There is a small bar and restaurant just off the lobby which is convenient for business travelers.
The room was quite and overlooked the parking garage which was fine for me. I prefer to be off the road and avoid traffic noise. The bathroom needed some serious attention but it served my purpose of only staying overnight. There was major rust in the bottom of the tub so taking a bath is out. Also, the ceiling was sagging and cracking from the moisture as there was no extractor fan.
The parking garage seems very dodgy when you park - no parking attendant even though there is a booth and it was dark and damp. However, my car was fine and parking was free which is always a bonus.
I got breakfast in the morning at the restaurant in the lobby and the service was great and quick. The menu was extremely fair priced - especially for being located within a hotel! I had eggs, ham and potatoes with toast and coffee for $7.99! Awesome!
Overall the hotel was a hit for me if I was only staying one night. It does need some attention as far as the carpets and bathrooms but worth the money for overnight. I would stay there again.
