This little hotel is a great value with a location convenient for shopping and restaurants. Lydia and Mary are two of the best Holiday Inn employees I've ever met. They really made our stay wonderful for myself and the kids. We will be coming back again the next time we are in the area. Another note the breakfast is actually... More

Clean room and bathroom with decent space. With microwave and fridge. Old TV. Entrance is being renewed. Relatively good breakfast (fruits (apples), cereals, cinnamon rolls, omelet, yogurt, pancake (was empty at the moment but it should usually work), bacon, biscuits, coffee/tea, sausage). Many food options and drugstore at short walking distance (sidewalk available). Good deal for this location. Old style... More

Place needs upgrade everywhere. Is closing end of Oct for total redo and will open under different brand. Bath fan sounded like airplane and TV didn't work at first. Not the friendliest staff either. Maybe after change and new brand.

Nothing wrong with the hotel. The shuttle was never on time. Waited almost an hour and 2 phone calls to get the shuttle to come. Good location for flying out of Dulles. Restaurants, liquor store, supermarket less than 5 minute walk.

We stayed here for 2 days visiting family, so we did not benefit from the proximity to Dulles. That would be the only reason to stay here. The hotel had several annoyances, but they are somewhat "built-in" to the venue. 1) we had an "accessible" room, but it was barely large enough to allow a wheelchair to maneuver. 2) one... More

We've been here before, and as in the past the accommodations are very nice, the location is good, the breakfast is free, hot and good. But (don't you hate it when that word gets inserted), if the place is FULL, there are some limitations. There is only one elevator, so, especially in the morning when checking out many people, and...

Close to Dulles with free hotel transfer plus transportation to local stops. Superb service at front desk. Very accommodating, courteous and sincere. Room comfortable, very clean. Nice breakfast although typical. Would recommend and definitely return. King room ran around $100..
