I enjoyed my stay here. The staff are great and all the amenities are equally great, also. However....the WiFi on the third floor is the worse. IF....you stay there.....ask for a room on the 1st or 2nd floor. Otherwise, it is great!

Room was very clean and actually very new. Staff was extremely helpful and professional. Breakfast was always good except the cheese omelets. Didn't care for them, but wasn't really there for taste testing! Would definitely recommend.

Good stay at the holiday inn express. Very friendly host and easy check in. Some drawbacks included hard water that smelled like bleach. In all the stay was nice, very convenient location and the host added the stay onto my IHG rewards card which was helpful.

Everything was fine to begin with but during the night, other residents seemed to be having fun slamming doors on our floor. In addition to that, the third floor residents did a lot of running back and forth and yelling. This went on until about 1:30 a.m. or so. We should have called the desk at that time, but did...

Our room was a king size bed/whirlpool suite. The only down side for me was the rather loud fan for the heat/ac. The clerk, Matthew, at the desk was most friendly and accommodating. The breakfast nook was stocked with great coffee, ample choices for breakfast. Convenience to the highway, town amenities (stores, gas, etc.), another plus. I'm sure you won't... More

Stayed only one night on our way towards DC. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Quiet. Only a double bed instead of queens made it an interesting sleep. Haven't done that for years. Close to many restaurants.
