Room was clean. used a coupon from the travel books. Decent price. Staff was so so. I had asked if there was anything in the afternoon, like a snack and was told no. Was a little disappointed to find out there were cookies. They were gone went I saw the container, which was not there earlier. When I mentioned it... More

This Holiday Inn Express lies at the upper end of the brand. It has friendly, efficient service folks at the front desk, large, well-equipped rooms, a good breakfast and decent fitness center with an indoor pool. The neighborhood is a bit on the isolated side, located near I-95 and I-295 south of Petersburg with not much around it except a... More

Staff was great. Hotel was very clean. Room was large and slept like a baby! Not much around in the area but it was worth the little extra drive ( 5 minutes). Nice breakfast with clean and up tp date dinning area.

We stopped this Holiday Inn Express to take a break from our long drive home from Florida. We got a great deal on the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable, it looked maybe recently redone. It was close to 95 and close to lots of different places for dinner. I would... More

We stayed here in route to South Carolina. Being very familiar with the HIE brand, this location was probably average for the chain. We checked in early to our two queen bed suite which reminded me a lot of the Embassy Suites room layout. Walked into a large living room with pull out bed, large flat TV and wet bar... More
