We arrived to our room conveniently on the 1st floor since we have a baby and we're tired. The room was neat and clean but a bit warm. We called the front desk and someone came but he didn't seem to know what to do to turn the ac on and was gonna have us change rooms which I wasn't... More

During a brief layover on our way back to Virginia Beach, we stopped at this hotel because of its location and appearance. There were several other options available; however, this property appeared to be more attractive and the price was reasonable. The service is very friendly, outgoing and attentive-we were made to immediately feel at home. Included is free wi-fi... More

We pulled off I-95 and made a last minute stop here while breaking up a long drive home. I believe the front desk person's name when we checked in was Hardy. (That's what I was told the next morning.) Anyway, staff both that first evening and the next day were very nice and helpful - and it was busy with... More

Don't even know where to begin. Checked in on our way to Savannah for a one night stay. Couldn't wait to take a soak in the hot tub cause we were stiff and sore from the long drive. But that wouldn't be possible cause the hot tub "was broken." Elevator floor was all wet and slippery. The floor from the... More

Great place to stay. We had a warm, clean room, with 2 big screen tv's. Very clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful. This place made us feel comfortable from the moment we entered the lobby. We will stay at a holiday inn express again.

The hotel is Partially renovated. Appears nice enough. Room looks nice, new bathroom fixtures and new linens on beds. Thin walls, can hear every flush, cough, cry from rooms all around. Also the room smells like a whole can of Lysol. Wondering what happened that Lysol was needed in the first place. Very unhappy.
