Thanks to TripAdvisor reviews we booked a night here on our way towards DC. The hotel is very clean and looks freshly updated. The front desk staff was friendly and check in was swift. We had a double queen with a view of the back parking lot and woods past it. Refrigerator, Keurig machine in the room, amazing water pressure... More

While the lobby appeared freshly renovated, the rooms certainly could use some attention. Hallways and rooms seemed musty, tears and fraying stained carpeting. Cracked tiles and bathrooms in need of general updating. Room was clean and breakfast acceptable, but compared to other Holiday Inn Express locations this one falls short. Pool area also extremely small. We will look for another... More

This hotel is easy to reach from the interstate. It is well-appointed and clean. Our room was attractive, comfortable bed, pillows. Great shower, but shower curtain was hard to keep closed. Simple breakfast, but sufficient with varied offerings.

We lost power in a storm, and after two nights of suffering through the heat, we decided on this hotel. Room was extremely clean, beds were beautifully made & slept well. Large flat screen TV with all the channels, as well as a wall-controlled thermostat for the AC. In-room coffee had K-cup style coffee/teas. Bathroom was clean and well stocked... More

This hotel is right off the I-40 Highway jumbled amid half a dozen other hotels/motels and a bunch of chain eateries. This hotel was actually a pretty sensible choice. The front desk service was good, the breakfast was a step better than anticipated, with eggs to order and a pleasant staff to compliment the buffet. The hotel was clean and... More
