Love this hotel, it is so clean, the employees were wonderful! Every one of them from the manager, to David the maintainance person but especially Nancy in the dining room.

Holiday Inn Express and Suites is located a little further from the DC and Old Town Alexandria area than we wished but this establishment was quickly to be found a jewel and ideal place to stay.

The family, wife and two boys (ages 6 and 7), stayed at this location for three nights at the end of east coast two week family vacation. The low cost, free breakfast and shuttle, and use of the neighboring hotel's (managed by the same company not associated with either hotel) pool quickly attracted me to this Holiday Inn Express.

About half-way through our stay and while touring the local DC national attractions my wife looked at me and commented about how wonderful the hotel and staff were. Those were my thoughts exactly!

This hotel offers almost everything that a traveler would wish for. The room was one of the cleanest that I have encountered in any hotel. There is no restaurant or bar but the hotel does offer a free shuttle, not only to the DC metro stop (about four blocks away) but to Old Town Alexandria's (King Str) area where there is variety of restaurants and shops that would offer even the season traveler a pause in making their choice. Despite the lack of restaurant the hotel offers a free full breakfast each morning from 630 am to 930. Entries include but not limited to scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon and sausages, variety of muffins, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, coffee, juice, cereal, and milk.

Even with the free shuttle, clean rooms, and free breakfast the true jewel of this trip were the staff. Every member of the staff were professional, friendly, courteous, and had a desire to make your stay at their hotel the most pleasant experience you ever encountered. Phill, Corey, Kelvin, and Aesmesen were the four front desk and drivers that we experienced the most during our trip and everyone one of these four made our stay extra special. These four, along with their co-workers, went beyond what was expected of them to ensure we were experiencing the best experience possible while at their hotel. Their everyday smiles and comments showed the pride they have in their job.

My only negative comment would be the heating/cooling system used. The air conditioner is a wall based unit located at the base of the window that is controlled by a separate wall based thermostat. The air conditioner would blast out the cold air until the desired temperature was reached. It would turn off when the temperature is reached only to be triggered again when not. This blast would be full and load blast of air across the room. This would make the room sometimes unbearable.

If and when I visit DC again I will definitely make this my place to stay. Outstanding job by the staff and great economic value for any stay in DC.

We had a party of 7 travelling from Chicago to DC. We stayed at this hotel, which was just a few minutes away from the Huntington Station Metro stop. The hotel provided a free shuttle to the Metro from 7am-10pm. This was a sparkly clean and very friendly hotel. The staff was excellent, especially Fred, David, Corey, Nancy and Phillip. There were school tour buses staying there while we were there, but you wouldn't know it! The hallways had a monitor that kept the kids quiet which was much appreciated! The breakfast was yummy and plentiful! Very pleased!!

I was a little skeptical about this place as I had never stayed here but it is just perfect. The rooms are beautiful and large, the parking lot is huge, and it's not far from dc. If I could choose a place that's outside of the city this would be it.

I was very pleased to have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. It is one of the nicer budget motels that I have stayed at. All of the amenities are great and appreciated.

The best part of my motel experience was the staff! Very helpful and very friendly and very accomodating. Phillip, Corey, and Fred stand out as assets to the property.

The first time I stayed was after their sister property next door wouldnt extend my stay, but
Phillip was excellent in accomodating me.

By using our Priority Rewards Points, we earned one of the worst rooms in the place. The other guests were loud and noisy late at night. The worst feature was the lack of blackout curtains that would close out the bright lights and heavy traffic from Highway 1. Even though we asked for a quieter room, we stayed ground level, facing the road.

The service was very good in spite if the poorly located room. The staff was courteous and friendly. The hotel was clean and updated with a nice, open breakfast room. Breakfast was average with paper thin bacon and so-so scrambled eggs but plenty of it. The facility is quite nice so the right room with curtains that close or a higher floor in the back could change the whole experience.
