We stayed at this property on our 30 Anniversary. Not being from Lynchburg we had trouble finding the hotel using online directions, but GPS brought us to their door. During check-in they upgraded us to a suite for our Anniversary at no charge. Also made recommendations for dinner. During the night they even slipped an Anniversary Card under the door of our room. Complementary parking in the connected garage was a plus for a downtown location. The staff made our stay extra special and we cannot say Thank-you enough for the wonder memory!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Deeds38 Rude!
We stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks ago during a holiday to the US. On the way to the hotel, we were involved in an autowreck so by the time we got to the hotel we were bruised and battered and visibly shaken.
We were checked in by a very abrupt female. When we were asked if we had a vehicle. We explained no, we have just been in a terrible crash. The female who checked us in contiunued to talk at us, telling us the floor we were on without even enquiring as to our wellbeing. We weren't even offered assistance with our luggage when it was so clear we were struggling.
The room itself was big and clean enough, however we were very put off by how curt and rude the staff were.
Considering some of the other hotels we stayed in during our US trip, I found it overpriced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reno61 Top location and great staff
Hotel continues to be the best location in a slowly reemerging downtown area. Great access to Randolph College, hiking and sightseeing along the Blackwater trail and the James River, wonderful local farmers market and several good dining options. Hotel is pushing rates much higher recently which is unfortunate. Location is only so valuable when better prices are only 10 minutes away and HI Lynchburg is right on the edge of pricing themselves out of favor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by teacheramh bar experience - roll away bed.
bartender needs to be more accommodating. his customer service was very poor. the roll away bed needs a new mattress.
Other than these 2 problems, it was a very clean and friendly hotel and staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hokiehal A Gem in Downtown Lynchburg!
My wife and I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown Lynchburg on three occasions now, and we have thoroughly enjoyed all three visits! The location is easy to access from the expressway, the staff is courteous and professional, the room (a King Executive Suite) was spaceous and comfortable, and the parking was in an adjoining deck...and free. We will return to stay again in the future!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quick Visitor A little overpriced
This is a very nice hotel, convenient to downtown. It is also, for the area, relatively expensive. We were happy with the overall experience and found the staff to be exceptional, both at the front desk and in the restaurant at breakfast. The whole place is clean, and the climate control in our room was (thank goodness) not set to Arctic temperatures. However, we were a little disappointed with the comfort of the room, specifically the toilet paper and the sheets. For the price, I was expecting less scratchiness (in both departments).

I enjoyed my stay at the Hotel, never could get my tablet to connect to the Internet, but I am not blaming that on the hotel, could have been my tablet. I was basically in the hotel for Sleep and that was about it

When visiting our daughter we normally stay at the HI Express closer to the university. This time we wanted to experience downtown Lynchburg and were very pleased with the accommodations and the breakfast in the onsite restaurant. Parking was also convenient in the onsite garage. We will be back.

Our son attends college close to the hotel. He is also on one of the sports teams so we are in Lynchburg almost every weekend. Sharon at the front desk is so wonderful and always looks after us! The rooms are always nice and comfortable. We will always stay there when in Lynchburg!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by momthom Quiet and comfortable
Stayed here before, 3 years ago and it was nice, quiet, and comfortable. Still either seems well used or a little out dated. Elevator floor is worn down and buttons broken so the appearance needs a little sprucing up. Having the frig and microwave in the room was nice and the rest was clean. Toiletries from Bath and Body works nice, too. Pretty disappointed the pool was not open it was in the 80s when we got there, but already closed for the season, and treadmill broken. It is right in the heart of downtown, where they are renovating buildings quickly so there are lots of nice restaurants and shops around. Liked being able to have a "sit down" breakfast in the restaurant but would have also liked a "fast" option such as yogurt, bagel, hard-boiled egg or fruit. We went down one morning and all the players from a football team came down at the same time so we decided to grab something from a fast food place.

This was our 2nd stay at this location, and once again we experienced a pleasant stay in a comfortable room with no problems. Was able to enjoy the pool this visit, and was impressed to find it handicapped accessible. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Hotel is quiet even with a big convention of ball players in the hotel. Hotel staff managed placement of guests/rooms to make sure weary travelers and college ball players did not disturb one another with routine activities. Staff was eager to help ensuring quality service received. Able to work and rest peacefully as it was peaceful and quiet.

Very new and clean and all updated. The surrounding area is an upcoming area of Lynchburg. Don't underestimate it. It is in the artsy area and a lot of construction is going on to make the area more accessible, and to enhance the art community. There us in awesome chocolate shop near by called Cao. It is very good and I recommend you go there for desert. They are open until 8:00. We noticed more going on in the area than during the day. There are more restaurants than you realize so check the area out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mountain Woman Great service
I was staying at this hotel to be closer to the hospital where my husband died during my 6 day stay. The staff showed so much compassion. We shared hugs, notes, tears, laughter...........conversations of shared experiences. Every staff member at this hotel went above and beyond what is required of them to serve a guest and to comfort me. Survey numbers do not go high enough to rate these folks!

I've stayed here before and didn't have the issue with the bed being not so comfortable as I did this time. Unluck of the draw I guess. Overall, I've always had a nice experience staying here from upon greeting at the lobby, service, room, and breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jess108 Weekend getaway
We decided on this hotel mostly on location. It's downtown location was convenient to family we were visiting in the area. Overall the hotel was comfortable and clean and those are the things I find most important in a hotel that we weren't spending a great deal of time in. The hotel looks drab from the outside and inside the lobby and common areas show obvious wear and are outdated. The staff was friendly, quick, and helpful upon checking in though.
The room was clean and exactly what you'd expect from a hotel of this class as far as amenities in the room. The bathroom door wouldn't latch and the bathtub drained slowly, but we also didn't say anything to staff to give them the opportunity to fix it. They had wifi available which was pretty quick and decent connection, but they changed the access code without informing us that it would be changed during our stay and so we had to call to find out why we couldn't log in.
Overall the hotel was comfortable and in a great downtown location. It needs some updating overall, but it doesn't detract from the value of the hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mbALEX TV did not work and homeless wanderers
I stay at this Holiday Inn often for business. This trip they were able to accomodate me with a 2nd floor room close to the elevator which was great. The TV did not work well in the room, only the local stations came in; the cable stations kept blinking out. I told the front desk staff person this when I checked-out and she said "oh must be the reception." Every other room I have had in the past always had good reception.
I saw several (what appeared to be homeless) men hanging out in the lobby of the hotel and one followed me outside and asked for a cigarette. I was uncomfortable with him following me.
The breakfast was good as usual, except NO Grits anymore - bring them back HInn please!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vinniecap Holiday Inn Lynchburg VA
Located steps from historic downtown Lynchburg VA, this was a wonderful HI that I enjoyed my stay at. I was in town for business training, and stayed for a little over a week. Spacious room with very nice bed, desk, fridge etc. Marble lobby with working fountain was a nice touch upon entering the hotel. Staff was superb for my entire stay. Nice roof top pool with LED lighting at night, and a decent exercise room. There didn't seem to be too many other hotels in the area, but that is fine by me. This property is a winner, and was priced right for it's location. Highly recommend. If you are hesitant, don't be. It's a nice place to lay your head, get some work done and relax as well.

Went to Lynchburg for a wedding and they had a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Downtown. Check-in was quick and easy and everything went well. The rooms were nice and clean and they were helpful to get some extra towels and blankets for our boys. The internet connected easily and was fast enough. The only issue I ran into was that they change the internet code at midnight every night, so in the morning I couldn't connect to the internet. I had to get another code from the front desk to get it to work. That was awkward. Would have been better to change it at noon each day when people are changing out. Otherwise, nice location with great shops within walking distance.
