The ”Insiders Guide” at msn.com states that there are many hotels throughout the US that cost less than $200 a night. Not only are these hotels affordable but they are highly rated on TripAdvisor.

The article, written by Sara Hendricks, went on to say that staying in a hotel can feel like the peak of luxury – and, often, there’s a hefty price tag to go along with the stay. She added, but this isn’t always the case.

Each state in the US has a selection of hotels you can stay in for a great price, without sacrificing comfort. Here are the top. hotels in each state that, according to TripAdvisor, at the time of publication, you can stay in for under $200 a night.

For the past three years, our COMFORT INN & SUITES in Lynchburg Virginia has been recognized with the “Platinum Award” and is currently ranked as the #1 Hotel in Lynchburg by TripAdvisor (out of 25 area hotels). We attribute our success to outstanding team members

HE IS REALLY MARVELOUS!

His mom, Wanda Hurt, could not have picked a better name for her son that she aptly named “Marvelous”.

Marvelous is one of our valued members of #TEAMCOMFORT and works in the Maintenance, Laundry, Housekeeping, Breakfast and will be training at the Front Desk this Summer.

But, what Marvelous did on Saturday, May 4th is even more AMAZING… he rushed to stop a truck just it was running over a piece of luggage that had accidentally been left behind it. He literally climbed underneath the car to retrieve it for our guest.

This is just one example of the exceptional service that our guests have come to expect at our COMFORT INN & SUITES in Lynchburg, Virginia – Lynchburg’s AWARD-WINNING Hotel! www.comfortiscaring.com

WHY WORK.

BRIAN’S BLOG – By Brian Knopp

“Wherever You Are Be There.” is one of our Core Values here at the COMFORT INN & SUITES in Lynchburg, Virginia.

To our team, this means that when you are at “Work” that your focus should be on our “Guests” and when you are at “Home” your focus should be “Family”.

Since the hotel business is a 24/7 operation this can be a challenge; especially as a General Manager. However, we are fortunate to have an incredible #TEAMCOMFORT here in Lynchburg.

It all starts with our owners, Dave & Susan Francis, who have been in the hotel business for 40 years here in Lynchburg. They have put together a great team that has a combined 276 years of experience in the hospitality industry. We are able to offer a “New Level of Comfort” to our guests and share that “Comfort Is Caring”.

I would also like to recognize our Management Team which includes: David Dudley, Assistant Manager; Jasmine Rivera, Executive Housekeeper; Lucille Scott, Assistant Executive Housekeeper; and Luther Hensley, Maintenance Chief who provide invaluable leadership to me, our entire team and our valued guests.

This week our hotel was recognized with the prestigious “Platinum Award” by Choice Hotels for being one of the Top Hotels in the nation within the Comfort brand. We are #15 out of 1,015 hotels… however, our goal next year is to be in the “Top 10” in the country.

Our success is due to #TEAMCOMFORT and I hope our entire team has a wonderful weekend with family and friends. www.comfortiscaring.com
