We stayed two nights here in a king executive room. it was clean and good-sized. It was nice that they had regular full-size toilets instead of the lower height ones that some have. Breakfast was at 6:30 AM and was typical for a HIE. This hotel did not offer snacks in the afternoons or evenings.

BigTXN, Thanks for your review; glad to hear your affirmations but sorry to hear you weren't offered snacks, which I gather you were expecting? While it is not a brand standard Holiday Inn Expresses offer, you sound like you would've enjoyed a late afternoon nibble. Come stay with us again and let me know you are here - I'll hook...

This was a very clean, well-run hotel. There was a disconnect between what we had requested during the online reservation process and what was presented to us upon arrival. The front desk made it right immediately without any hassle. As an aside, for those who are familiar with the HI express pancake machine, this location managed to keep it running...

LOL, Jared K2! The Holiday Inn Express' pancake machine has a reputation? I am sorry to hear that our other hotel's pancakes don't "stack up" to ours but - we are in Williamsburg, a major tourist destination and mecca for pancake houses - we gotta stay on our toes! Can't only offer a free, full hot breakfast with our clean,...

My wife and I were really disappointed with this hotel. We stayed over Memorial Day weekend 2016 while we visited local attractions. First, I thought the price of the room was a little steep - understanding that it is a popular area and a holiday weekend, we bit the bullet and paid up - but in hindsight we probably should...

This hotel was excellent. Very modern and clean throughout. This hotel offers a indoor pool and exercise room. The free breakfast contains what you would expect plus a nice selection of hot foods.

We had a perfect stay! The room was beautiful and clean! There is a great pool and the breakfast (& coffee) was amazing!! The front desk staff was friendly and polite and we're prompt in assisting us when we needed additional supplies. 5 stars!! ✨

Well, BIOMAJORHAZARD, Aside from having the coolest online user name EVER; you also gave us the coolest 5 star review which we are so thankful for!!!

This is the 4th time we have stayed at this hotel.The people that work there are very nice and the hotel has always been very clean every time.

New construction. Smaller food area than some Express sites. Good value in this area. Nikka and Sherri were great at the breakfast area. Quiet ac is a real benefit. Ability to Set fan on constant run was a real plus for sleeping. A short distance from town but the savings is is worth it at no loss in quality.
