I thought the staff was great, check in and check out was easy. The complimentary breakfast was nice. My only complaint was our room was not that clean. The floor wasn’t vacuumed when we got there and not for the rest of the 2 days we stayed. Also the tub wouldn’t drain so taking a shower was a little gross with the water on the bottom. If they cleaned the room a little better, and the tub drained, I would not have any complaints. Overall, everyone was friendly and accommodating.

My family has stayed at this Holiday Inn Express several times. The property is always clean, the beds are very comfy, and the staff is friendly - especially the breakfast attendant. My only complaint is that apparently Travelocity continued to let people book rooms with 2 double beds even after none were available for this date. As a result, I wound up with a room with one king bed and a sleep sofa instead of the two doubles I had reserved. The hotel staff was apologetic and provided a small discount for the inconvenience. Apparently this has happened before.

Expensive for the quality

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, suite
Cons: Noisy, a/c smelled, rundown, expensive!!1
I stayed at this hotel with my mom. It was horrible!! the evaluator was broke. It took them 30 minutes to check us in when we were the only one there. The room was run down for the money. It was a suite but the tiles were coming off near the tub. The air conditioner smelled like mold and my mom ended up getting sick from this. I was very disappoint. The pool was ok still run down for the money. They need to remodel before I would ever stay at this hotel ever again.

Great value, location and service

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was very convenient to VA Tech. Suite was not large but adequate and comfortable for 3 women to share. Combined with evening snacks and pleasant breakfast, the value was truly excellent.
