3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Hotel seemed new - yet it lacked the simple things that you don't think about until you go to use them. Room was huge (Room 314), but it had poor lighting and not enough outlets. We had to unplug the clock radio to plug in our laptop to use while sitting on the bed. Ok, there was an area in... More

No complaints here! Nice hotel and staff! I will definitely stay there again! The room was clean, it was quiet, staff was very polite. It we in the middle of everything, practically walking distance to local stores and eateries.

Compared to the many other Holiday Inn's we've stayed, this one was very disappointing. After checking in (around 4pm) I asked if there was coffee available. (Typically, coffee is always available during the day at HIE.) Front desk attendant quickly told me she had been very busy, had not had time to do coffee and would do it if she... More

Recent business trip gave me the opportunity to spend several nights- it was a great stay - front desk personnel so courteous and attentive. The breakfast was good with several choices. Room was clean & roomy. One of the best hotel stays I have had.

I spent 2 nights here while looking at property in the surrounding area. Pros: Very clean. Staff very pleasant and efficient. The location is central, between Roanoke and Smith Mountain Lake, on a main road. Easy access. Parking seemed sufficient. Quiet during the week, busier on weekends. Cons: Older and needs updates - especially in heating/air. No safe in the... More

We stayed for 2 nights during an event in a nearby town. The staff was very friendly and helpful with information or things for the room. The lobby and rooms were clean and inviting. The beds were comfortable (though the fold out sofa had visible springs through the fabric, luckily my child isn't too fussy). Breakfast was plentiful, had some... More

I am always comfortable staying at this hotel, which I've had to do periodically over the years. I stayed there many times in 2008 when we were renovating some property on Smith Mountain Lake and stayed there again a couple of weeks ago in September. It's not a place I would vacation, but it's great if you need to stay... More

I took the time to write a review when Holiday Inn sent me the feedback link...they rejected it due to "irrelevant and/or inappropriate" content...what does that mean?? CONS: overpriced for a rural area, only one other hotel in this small town and feel like they take advantage of customers because of that...$119 and up! HK knocked on door before 10... More

We have stayed here numerous times throughout the years to travel to and from Smith Mountain Lake. It is approximately 30 minutes away and a very nice drive. There are numerous places to eat in immediate area, as well as any type of store you may need/want to stop by. We have never been disappointed. Staff is always friendly, rooms... More
