The pictures on TripAdvisor showd hot tub but no hot tub. Rooms are fine, a/c was off when got to room so little musty and very warm. A/C barely kept room cool all night. We used reward night. Not sure if that why we got placed right next to elevator. Heard the motor and ding when elevator came to floor.

Very friendly staff and clean rooms. Stopped here traveling between Maryland and Georgia with my family. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay passing through! Short distance from many restaurants also.

The beds weren't great, its your standard holiday inn express, nothing special, a good stop between NY and FL. If you need to stop, its fine but nothing to write home about. If I had a choice, I probably would have went to Smithfield in NC.

Easy to find just off the freeway, staff very friendly, room was clean plenty of space. A few places to eat nearby, but a bit limited, we ended up at Applebee's - OK by me. Standard breakfast, basic but Ok. Plenty of space of space for parking, Wi-Fi OK. Would stay again for an overnight stop.

I stayed 1 night as I traveled from Florida to New England. I Have stayed in Emporia at least 8 times now. This was my first at this hotel. The hotel was priced right so I booked, and I was not disappointed. Friendly staff, good location, safe, and very clean. The breakfast was small, but good. Check in and out... More

Just needed a room while driving up 95. Always stay at HIE since they offer comfortable rooms and free breakfast for the kids and adults. had to ask for a water at the front desk. As a club member a goody bag with water was once given after checking in. No longer!? Or just this HIE?

Stopped here for the night on the way home with my husband and daughter. Had to wait forever to check in because the girl at the desk was on the phone with another customer. When we finally got into the room the first thing we noticed was a strong chlorine smell, which went away after turning the AC on. The... More

Basically a clean good mid range hotel with good free breakfast and wifi. That's all we are looking for when traveling and there were no surprises. Breakfast was probably better than most hotels in this category. Side note: At the time of our visit they had an "on demand" pancake making machine which we had never seen before. While mildly...

I looked on the IHG website to search hotels in Emporia and liked the Holiday Inn Express. The website says pet policy is no pets allowed, no kennels. I thought that's great since I don't want pets where I stay. When walking in I thought I detected a " dog" smell , but thought it can't be. The next morning... More
