My wife and I were away and visiting the area for the NASCAR event in Martinsville. Our check in for Friday was interesting. The first 2 rooms were totally unacceptable. Very musty smell along with a thick tobacco smoke odor. There was no way the we'd be able to stay there if those were our only options. We are non... More

Stayed at Holiday Inn Express at Rocky Mount, VA Sunday, Dec 14th in a pre-paid room and Holiday Inn Express charged me a second time for the room. The desk clerk told me she didn't charge me again but that was not the case. Now I'm in limbo trying to get my money back. Is this considered theft? The room... More

Nice hotel, clean with lots of nice little touches. Friendly and accommodating staff. Very good breakfast selection with hot options and a one button - fresh pancake machine. Beds might be a little too soft for some, but just right for others.

We spent two nights here on Oct. 21 & 22, 2014 and this hotel does not compare to other Holiday Inn Express hotels we have stayed at. The building exterior is bland, the interior needs updating, the furniture in the rooms looks real cheap. The room I stayed in smelled, the carpet had a trail of blood stains on it,... More

Fantastic check in experience, friendly staff in the afternoon. Good breakfast with many options...cereal, sausage, bacon, bagels, etc. Very well situated amongst shopping and dining options. The room was good, a/c was great, mattresses were a little too soft for my liking but comfortable. All in all a very good experience. If you are from the north, be sure to... More

Great staff and good hotel location. Easy to get to the college from there and not to far away. Convenient to all types of restaurants. The staff is very knowledgeable about all of the locations you might be looking for and seems to be the hub for all Ferrum College parents!

The room was fairly average. Just your typical chain hotel room. Complimentary breakfast was good. Plenty of options in terms of both hot and cold food. Never got a chance to check out the pool or other facilities, as I was only there for one night.

This was one of the worst hotels. the AC didn't work, the room smelled and they really need to upgrade the rooms. the bed was horrible. The lady in the breakfast area wouldn't even greet you and seemed angry. I will never stay in this hotel again. You are better off staying in Roanoke than this place. It's really bad.

We stayed at this hotel for the Virginia Tech graduation in May 2014 (We didn't book a room until it was too late to get one closer). It was a 1 hr 15 minute trip to Blacksburg which was not a bad trip (plus we saved a lot of money - graduation rates are super high around Blacksburg/Roanoke!) This hotel... More

I am traveling with my children. When I called the national reservation number I specifically told the agent I needed a room with two queen size beds. The agent promised the room.
