Very new hotel, close to the freeway, but no road noise. Close to Colonial Williamsburg and the Historic Triangle area. Restaurants close by. Breakfast had many options, and was refreshed quickly though out the morning. Eggs, sausages, breads, muffins, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, yogurt, 4 kids of oatmeal, and cereals. Large pool that was very clean and the water was the...

The hotel is conveniently located close to I45 and onle a very short trip from the Williamsburg Historical district. The hotel also has an indoor swimming pool and a well equipped exerciser room. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Family of five, one room, king size bed with a pull out couch. Accommodations somewhat tight for our family, but again it was a quick getaway.

My wife and I stayed this past week for 4 nights. The staff was very friendly, esp Andrea & Lauren. Those were only 2 desk personnel I dealt with. Even the other staff always greeted with a smile.

I rarely stay at holiday inn express hotels. This property is well located for easy access; is new' clean and has value for the dollar. Free parking, free wifi, free breakfast. The staff seems to be trying hard to get things right. Visiting colonial Williamsburg and other historical sites from here is very easy with lots to see and do.
