Called hotel direct to book a room. They were very efficient and immediately emailed me my confirmation. When we arrived a little tough at first to find the correct place to cross the road. A sign at the road would be helpful. The hotel is 4 stories and has great curb appeal. Check in was fast and we were thanked...

The service was great, with nice southern charm. The room was clean and very quiet. The free breakfast eggs were poor, most likely from a premade carton. If you stop in Lexington, Virginia this hotel is one of the better ones.

I think my title is too encompassing. It's all of that and then some. Each bed has 2 pillows, one soft and one firm. And tell me the little rubber ducky isn't a nice touch. If you know somebody at VMI, this is the place! (they could use an ice machine on second floor though)

The staff were friendly and pleasant. They greeted you with a smile and I felt welcomed. Rooms were very clean and spacious, even the bathroom. This hotel is a very short drive to attractions so the location is a plus. I did not eat the breakfast offered because we slept in, but I have no doubt it was good. For...

If you are a frequent Holiday Inn Express traveler, beware! This is NOT a HIE! This is an old hotel that Holiday Inn had purchased and has yet to update. I feel that the brand should maintain its brand by closing a hotel until has brought a hotel up to its standard. My room stank so badly that I almost...

Dear lovetoeatwithmyhubby, I am sorry that you were disappointed with your visit and thank you for sharing your thoughts. As your review has a couple of inaccurate suppositions I thought I would provide clarification. We have proudly been a Holiday Inn Express since 2005 when the property was built. We have not been purchased and are awaiting an update. As...

Stayed one night on my way to NYC. Have stayed in the Holiday Inn Express when my son attended Washington and Lee. It is near I-81 and is a reliable place to spend the night. The hotel is undergoing a renovation and I was not able to get an upgraded room. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast is...

After being on the road for 13 hours, we checked in to the pleasant hotel. The front desk service was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Our rooms are comfortable and clean, and the surprise of finding a rubber duckie in the bathrooms was fun.

All the single rooms were full, so got a suite. It was huge and would be great for a family. It was well appointed with amenities including the kitchen area in the room.
