“Another great Holiday Inn Express!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I really enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn Express chain because of the nice breakfast that's included with your stay, and the choices available at this location was wonderful! This was the first time that I saw a pancake machine, and there were all types of fresh muffins, flavored coffees and juices.

My room was great; spacious and very clean, the bed was really comfortable, and it was nice to have a selection of pillows to choose from; firm or soft.

The staff was great - I had to check in a bit later than I planned, almost 8:30pm and the young lady who helped me (Nadyia?) was cordial and welcoming, and was most accommodating when I requested a later checkout because I am Priority Club member.

The next morning I met the front desk manager, Dan Eisenmann, and he was so very helpful. I went to load some things in my car and my card key had expired; he was kind enough to cheerfully re-key it for me so that I could finish loading up and out.

All in all, this was a very pleasant stay and I will definitely stay again when I'm in the area.

Room Tip: I had a King Leisure and it was spacious and comfortable.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I was always under the assumption that Holiday Inn's were "cheap" hotels and not very nice. I booked this because relatives that live nearby recommended it. The minute I walked in the lobby I was impressed. It is tastefully decorated and clean. A theme I noticed throughout my entire stay. The man checking me in was named Dan. I forgot my Priority Club number so he looked it up for me. He then wrote it down and gave it to me so I would have it without me asking him to. I mentioned it is hard to keep track of all the account numbers and passwords these days. He took out his personal iPhone and showed me an app he had found to store all this info. He even helped me find it and download it. Who goes out of their way like this anymore??? I appreciated it immensely!! Everytime we left or arrived we were always greeted in a very friendly manner. The cost was more than fair, the beds very comfortable, the bathroom and room very clean, the Wifi and breakfast was included. I just can't say enough good things about this hotel. Checking out, I had the pleasure of dealing with John. I made sure he knew how happy I was. I wouldn't think about staying anywhere else on my return visits! Thank you so much.

This hotel is located just a bit away from BWI with easy access to I-95 and I-70. Amenities include a nice, clean indoor pool, fitness center, business center, free WiFi, and a free hot breakfast.

Stayed here while attending a family event in the area. The suite we had for our family was very nice, two queen beds and a roll-out. The bathroom was spacious. The hotel was quiet and clean. Breakfast was OK, nothing wonderful. There was a snack pantry that did make it easy to give my kids a boost before dinner. The big disappointment was the pool - it is indoor but not heated. That was a huge bummer for me and my kids! I guess I should've asked if it was heated, but it seems odd to me to have an indoor pool that isn't heated. I did use the exercise room, too, and it could use a fan to keep the air circulating but other than that it was fine. Very convenient to Columbia.

We statyed at the Holiday Inn Express in Elkridge, Md on 2-8-13. I must say i've never wrote a review on a hotel but this time I must. My co-workers and I wanted to plan a weekend get away for the girls in the office. We contacted the hotel and spoke to Dan. He was very nice, polite, friendly and helpful. He even helped me look up the restaurants in the area were we may go to get something to eat. When we got to the hotel, we found the rooms to be very very clean, we could even smell the fresh sheets on the bed. The hotel was very quiet but yet busy in the lobby. As I checked in i was witness to many customers checking in and getting the same great customer service from John who was at the front desk. Its wonderful to see a hotel still has great service. In the morning we had breakfest in the hotel with the girls and felt as if we were home eating a home cooked meal. Food was very fresh and well cooked, five stars! I will stay at this hotel any day and recommend the Holiday Inn express in Elkridge to every one. Thanks so much to Dan for all his help and extraordinary service.

This is by far the cleanest hotel I have stayed in. My husband and I travel quite often and have stayed in various hotels. This was our 1st time here and will not be the last. From check in to check out it was a great experience. The manager on duty Dan Eisenmann was more than willing to answer any questions we had about our stay and very informing of the surrounding area attractions and restaurants. We did have our complementary breakfast in the hotel which offered more of a selection (hot and cold) than any hotel we have stayed in. This will be my hotel of choice when visiting the Baltimore/Annapolis area! Definitely scored excellent in every aspect in our opinion.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor so there were rooms over us and under us. If they were occupied we never...
