We recently stayed for one night. As we requested to be on the top floor, away from the elevator shaft, ice machine, and stairs, we had a quiet night. Unfortunately the A/C was not operating properly - the compressor was not coming on to cool and dehumidify the room. Because the outdoor temp was fairly cool, we didn't realize the...

Dear TedB8083, Thank you for staying with us and leaving feedback about your stay. Our goal is to provide excellent guest experiences but it is unfortunate to see that we weren't able to do so on this occasion due to the condition of the air conditioning systems in your room.

I booked this hotel from the app off my iPhone b/c I didn't have a computer on me while traveling, and realized this hotel was closer to where we needed to stay on our road trip than the one I had originally booked. I had no problems at check-in. The hotel is located right off I-95. The room was huge...

Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Petersburg-Fort Lee was very enjoyable. We stayed in a suite and it had everything that we could want. The rooms were clean and quite large.

Friendly staff, spacious rooms, very clean. Offers the free breakfast in a large dining room. We had a suite with sofa bed and separate bedroom. Refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed for a nice evening. If you stay here, don't miss out on Nanny's restaurant across the street. Fabulous southern cooking....

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the past few years and have found the people at the front desk were always friendly and professional. Hotel is always clean as are the rooms. Breakfast and the coffee always good.

The wife and I reserved a room using Trip Advisor and when we arrived the desk clerk said we had two reservations. Thankfully she canceled one them and offered dining advice for an Italian restaurant in town which was really good. The Suite was very nice, clean and had 2 large TVs. The furniture had some minor wear and tear...

I stayed at this hotel over Labor Day weekend while on a business trip. I'm a IHG/Holiday Inn rewards club member and was sadly disappointed by my stay at this property. I had planned to stay for 6 nights for a business trip, but cut it short and found another hotel due to staff not doing anything about excessively noisy...

Dear raydmak, Thank for your comments on your recent stay with us here in Petersburg. I appreciate you sharing your comments without guests to share their experience we would not be able to improve. I have spoken with the front office manager about the person using her cell phone and the noise complaint. This will not happen again and we...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn on my way to Florida after visiting some family in Boston. I thought the place was great for the price and the location. The breakfast was good wish there was a little more variety but for what was there it was hot and plenty of it.

Checked in very late. The bathroom still had pee in the toilet with a broken toilet seat. Used soap in the sink. TV remote did not work. So if you like to wake up to an infomercial it is guaranteed to occur, and it did. On the plus side it was two massive rooms with a somewhat comfortable bed for...

After driving from massachusetts in terrible traffic, we arrived at HIE at 1:00 A.m. I received a standard text confirming our reservation which I paid in full for.
