Unable TO USE CELL PHONES IN ROOMS AND ALSO COMPUTER SO SLOW BECAUSE THE OWNERS CHANGED COMPANIES DUE TO PRICES. I WOULD NOT STEP FOOT BACK ON THAT PROPERTY.
EMPLOYEES WERE WONDERFUL, BUT THEY ANSWER TO MANAGEMENT AND MANAGEMENT IS AWFUL.

I stayed here 76 days and the staff did its best to make it feel like home. A great little hotel next to a vineyard. Very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BarbaraK Clean and comfortable but requires a more professional staff
The room was clean and spacious; the bathroom amenities were very nice. The front desk staff were pleasant especially due to the number of guests that were there when I checked in. Weddings and baby showers made for many guests. Although the room was nice and the wireless internet was very good, the breakfast offerings were between poor and fair. I rated it fair as a gift. I went to breakfast at 9AM and the breakfast area was a mob scene. They did have the usual powdered eggs, sausage, biscuits, breads, yogurts and beverages. The eggs were not good. I opted for the packaged hard boiled eggs. Sausages were fine as was the biscuit. The next morning I went down at 9:30AM and everything was virtually gone. I had packaged hard boiled eggs out of necessity and a hard, sticky cinnamon bun. There were no other foods available other than dry cereals. Apparently they stop preparing breakfast after a certain time, despite the huge crowd jockeying for anything to eat. I got coffee and left. I thought it was odd that the hotel staff had assembled in the reception area and was partaking of the breakfast. I think hotel staff shouldn't be appearing as guests in reception, nor having breakfast intended for guests. Otherwise, a clean and attractive hotel in a beautiful setting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steven85 Great experience!
We stayed at the Vineyard recently for a wedding and had a great time. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They did not hesitate to answer questions and make sure that we were comfortable. We felt right at home. Just a short walk to Childress Vineyard for the wedding and to tour the vineyard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jtj911 Beautiful hotel with vineyard views
This is a Holiday Inn Express with the finest appointments of any HI Express I have ever stayed in. The only complaints I have are that the breakfast area and outdoor patio areas were not maintained as well as they should be. Overflowing trash bins and ashtrays were the norm. Also, I was a bit surprised at the number of construction workers staying at the hotel during my three week stay. Business travelers staying at a more upscale hotel with ties to a beautiful winery and vineyard don't expect big construction trucks in the parking lot and muddy boots in the lobby. The staff was great and the room was always cleaned properly except for the inside of the windows in my room that had the same smudges for the entire 3 weeks of my stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by swappedpaint Wonderful locale with great amenities deserves a great staff
I attended a wedding just walking distance from the Vineyard Holiday Inn Express, and the wedding was certainly made perfect by this hotel. The pool, patios, beds & bathrooms were all very clean, very comfortable, up to date and an asset to the hotel. What was disappointing was the seeming lack of concern that some of the breakfast staff had on the morning that we left. Given, they had a large number of guests from the wedding slam the breakfast area at once, but it was still disconcerting to see people reluctant to immediately refill breakfast foods, or to try to close up before the end of the breakfast period. I just didn't get the feeling they were working hard to make the end of our stay a great one. That being said, everything else was wonderful, and much of the staff was very accommodating of our wedding party.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Johnson48 HIE at the Vineyards
we stay at this hotel 3 weeks out of the year each year for business. the hotel is decent hotel but this year we all could tell that the hotel hasn't been managed properly. the outside areas have not been cleaned once in the 3 weeks we were there. there were cigarette butts all around the hotel. the table and chairs on the deck over looking the vineyards were in constant disarray... trash cans over flowing. the window in the rooms had not been cleaned the entire time we stayed (we checked out and checked back in each week to the same room). overall it's a really nice place to stay but this visit there were a lot of construction workers staying in the hotel and it just seemed that the hotel was slipping in standards from last year. the elevators were constantly dirty. the public bathrooms were rarely cleaned. truly hate to see this hotel downgraded. it was one of the nicer holiday inn express... one of the nicest ones we stay in. rooms were nice and comfortable. view is great and the vineyard is great... just hope management doesn't let this hotel slip to a 1 star hotel.

We booked a king suite with balcony which for reason did not have a chair on the balcony. There was not much of a selection for breakfast .The pails by the coffee station were never cleaned .Someone spilled soda in the elevator it was never cleaned along with the smudged walls.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chihuahuamom56 non recommendable ammenities
would not recommend this facility most mornings the breakfast items were cold and no fruit offered, indoor pool was so cold you could not swim, the idea of having indoor pools for your guests Is so they can swim was not able to do so on either times we stayed even though we complained and were told they turned water temp up,, this was not the case. No close by amenities and had to drive a distance to get meals.

My husband and I stayed here last week. We loved it!! Breakfast was great! The only downfall was the amount of noise in the hallway. The housekeeping staff was very loud in the morning. Would not keep us from staying here again..

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DDDMSD86 Surprisingly Dissapointed
I have never been dissaponted in a stay at a Holiday Inn Express until this visit. We left our room around 9:30 in the morning and didn't return until around 9:00 that evening. When I walked into the room I was very surprised to find that houskeeping had not cleaned my room.
I called the front desk and she brought me up towels and washcloths for the next day. She apologized and said she had noted my account.
When I checked out the next morning, I informed the staff about the situation. They just shook their head and said "I'm sorry".
The room beside me that I also paid for was cleaned but mine wasn't.
As we were driving into the parking lot to return to the hotel that evening, I told my husband that I had never been dissapointed with my stays at the Holiday Inn and that the Vineyard was one of the best. I'm not sure what I really expected them to do, but I was expecting them to act like it concened them more than it did. I got the impression it happens frequently and they are immuned to people complaining about it.

Nice Hotel and great staff, but don't show up before check in time, your room will never be ready. This is the only hotel that I've stayed where you can never go to your room before check in time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravelenJack Don't get next to the ice machine
I really like this hotel, I really like the staff, what I don't like is getting a room next to the ice machine.
Dozing off in a wine induced haze (Childress vinyard is next door a real treaat) at all hours to be woken to the grinding sounds of people filling ice buckets is no treat.
Otherwise, like always, I really enjoyed my stay.

Friendly staff and clean and comfortable room. Morning breakfast at a Holiday Inn Express is usually mediocre but here it was a bit tastier to the degree I had breakfast instead of going out. Hooray for HIE in Lexington!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PapaDoc great setting
My firm is working with a local hospital so the days are long and I rely on relaxation when I am off site. This particular setting is superb, set in the context of a vineyard. I enjoyed sitting on my porch which overlooks the vineyard. Very relaxing. Staff was friendly and helpful, notably George who is on during the night. Room was very clean, fresh, restful. Enjoyed the stay. My second time there.

If you are in the area, this Holiday Inn Express is a great place to stay. It is adjacent to the Childress Vineyards with wonderful views from your room. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. The complimentary breakfast offers a wide variety. Staff is always warm & welcoming. We stay everytime we attend a dinner event at the Vineyard.

All the cereal was generic, low quality sugar coated junk. Swimming pool not open until 9am which doesn't cater well to adults, particularly business travelers trying to some exercise after indulging in a barbecue lunch.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron66 No morning hot water.
I have stayed at this property many times in the past but this last stay resulted in a cold morning shower. The breakfast lady said it was because too many people showered at the same time but the front desk lady acted like this was the first time she had heard this comment - which was hard to believe. Otherwise a good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1pkraft Great Place
I brought a group of 18 to tour the Childress Winery and booked this hotel as it was close the Winery. Upon check in we found the front desk folks to be friendly and most helpful.
After check in we inquired about places to eat and since we rode motorcycles also asked about taxi service. They provided a large list and asked if we had a preference for any type of food. After we decided on a place to go they offered to call for reservations for the resturant and taxi. Wow, what great service.
Just walking through the lobby we always got a "Hi are are you" and "is there anything we can do?"
I will recommend this facility to all my friends and if we have an opportunity to come back to the area will not consider staying anywhere else.
