We arrived late in the evening, after a long trip. We contacted them enroute and confirmed a room. This is a new hotel, and it is extremely nice. We have used HI Express frequently, but this site is above all others. Clean, fresh, and wonderfully staffed.

Room was fine, no issues. Only problem I encountered was with the staff. When checking in, I was required to swipe a personal credit card even though it was a direct bill. I've stayed at many other Holiday Inn Express, no one else has asked for that. Also, the clerk checking me in could not give me my IHG club...

Holiday Express North is very nice. We checked in after spending one night at Great Wolf Lodge. It was a nice change - so quiet, very clean. The kids enjoyed the pool, all to themselves. Beds are comfortable. Staff were very nice. We'll definitely be back.

I stayed at the hotel during Christmas season. We had a great experience. The staff was always helpful. I would come back to this location. We travel to Bush Gardens at least once a year. The hotel is new and management want to offer the best possible experience.

I was traveling with my kids and stayed for 3 nights. We had a great experience. Front desk was helpful and polite on check in. Room was clean and modern. The pool was a great temperature and enjoyable. We enjoyed the free breakfast. There were lots of choices, including more healthy options. If we go to Williamsburg again, we would...

My husband and I were traveling for the holidays and needed a one night stay mid way through our travels. We did a google maps search and found this hotel. We called and there was availability so we checked in 10 minutes later. It was late at night so there was only one person at the front desk. My husband...

Stayed here for a soccer tournament this November. The rooms were a nice size, clean, and well appointed. Friendly staff. Breakfast was good and there were a lot of choices. Just wish the breakfast area was a bit larger or laid out better? Because of the volume it was tough to get to the coffee.

The location is on a side road, short drive to restaurants and sights , it could be busy in the summer because there is a large camper park across the road. The hotel looks new inside and out.

We like to stay at Holiday Inn's. They are consistent and provide the basics that we like for a reasonable price. Those basics include indoor pool, workout facility, and breakfast. This location is not too far from activities in the Williamsburg area, but there are a couple HI's that are closer. The pool heater was broken so it was not...
