“Comfortable & Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Easy off & on from I81. Room was very clean. Comfortable bed. Had both hot & cold food for breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was just right. There are lots of restaurants within 10 minutes. Found a Olive Garden just 7 miles away.

Nice place with friendly staff. All was clean and the breakfast was on the upper end of the free hotel breakfast spectrum. My only criticisms would be that the exercise room is rather limited (no elliptical) and that the room has a unit AC/heat rather than a thermostatically controlled central unit - I prefer the central unit as they are quieter. Another plus is that, unlike some other hotel chains, the building is not washed by flood lights at night time that force you to close the blackout curtains in order to sleep at the expense of missing morning sun.
I'd stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us and also taking the time to review our hotel. We all appreciate the nice comments about our staff as well as our breakfast. I am happy that you had a good experience overall however I do apologize for the absence of our elliptical; It had a maintenance problem and we had parts on order. It has now been repaired though, and it's ready for your next trip to Kingsport. Thanks again for staying with us!

Holiday Inn Express is a favorite Hotel chain of mine, but this location was a knockout! We were expecting the usual HIE room/suite and were shocked at what we found. The room was VERY spacious, and had a separate living room with TV, mini-frig and microwave. There was a door that closed off the bedroom from the living room. We didn't need to close it off, but it was a very nice perk, to remember for the future! The beds were very comfortable, the room was quite, and it was very, very clean. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed the last night of our journey in total bliss! Breakfast was nice and the room was spacious and open. Only downside, there were 2 restaurants nearby that had closed up. So if you like to walk to dinner, this wouldn't be the place to stay. But, the upside, no restaurants means no noise either!! Will definitely be back to this hotel!!

This is not your regular Holiday Inn Express and Suites it is an upscale Holiday Inn Express & Suites. The moment you enter the lobby you can tell that they owner/staff members take pride in this property. The breakfast is the same as all the others.
Instead of taking a change at the Holiday Inn Express around I-81/77 conjunction near Bristol VA that they would have a room available we stopped at Kingsport TN. Be warn when you arrive at night fall you do need to paid close attention to the turn off, the turn is on a crest of a hill and it is very easy to miss. What a surprise as we drove up to the entrance to see that the owner/staff took the time to put out Christmas lights and it didn't stop there. As you walked into the entrance we felt like we were walking into someone home at Christmas time. Very cozy lobby that was all deck out for Christmas with wing back chairs around the fire in the fireplace. In the dining area there were three decorated Christmas trees, in the glass show cases-Christmas tea pots/coffee cups, cookie jars, in other words Christmas decorations everywhere. Very tasteful done.
When you are on the road about 200 days out of the year for decades you appreciated the extra effect that hotel staff members do. From all of the Holiday Inn's, Express, that we stayed in not one when out of their way to decorate for Christmas or in fact other Holidays like Kingsport Holiday Inn Express & Suites.
If my battery didn't die on me there would have been more pictures posted.
Will stay here again.

My wife and I stay at this inn when we come to visit family. We've stayed here several times, once with our 3 grandchildren. The property is clean, the staff in courteous and friendly, and the amenities are numerous and welcomed. Among those amenities are a great breakfast bar, other free snacks throughout the day as you are in and out the door, and a great heated area indoor pool. If you are coming to Kingsport to stay a while or just overnight, the inn is convenient to everything and only about 5-10 minutes from the interstate (worth the drive).

Room Tip: All the rooms we've stayed in are spilt suites; they offer two queen beds and a couch that makes...

We booked a last minute trip to Kingsport to visit a friend in a hospital stay. We were very happy with our King Suite for a very good <$100 price. Room was spacious and comfortable, A/C a little loud but not to keep us awake at night, and B'fast adequate ane what you would expect. What we likeed most about our vist was the helpfulness and personality of Piper, our guest host when we checked in. She made us feel at home, told us of where to get good restaurant selection, and how to get to the hospital more quickly. Her real estate background certainly helped in her new career.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express - Kingsport - Meadowview I-26 for a family reunion. All in all there were about 13 of us from out of town who chose to stay at the hotel. The hotel was nice enough to put all of our family members on the same floor and at the same end of the hallway. The staff at this hotel were amazing. They greeted us every time we walked by the desk or passed one of them in the hallway. The best part of this hotel has got to be the gazebo out front. After the family reunion those of us who did not want the party to end, sat outside at the gazebo under the fan catching up on old times and telling stories. All in all it made for a great vacation!
