I spent a couple weeks at this Holiday Inn in December 2012 and found it to be a very comfortable home-away-from-home. The front desk service was outstanding, accentuated by Debbie, who I had several good laughs with during my stay (in addition to answering questions about the local area). Her insistence that I looked like an actor on a TV commercial was the beginning of a fun back-and-forth between us. It felt like we were old friends immediately, which is a nice feeling when you are on the road for long stretches of time.
My room on the fourth floor was quite spacious with a desk, TV stand (and TV), a small armchair and a good-sized mini-fridge and microwave, with two queen beds. I never heard any of my neighbors during my two week stay. I'm not a big fan of the tiny pillows that seem to be a signature of Holiday Inn hotels, but there were 4 for each bed so I compensated for size with quantity.
My only complaint about the property is the tiny laundry room - a single washer and dryer for four floors of guests. I had to be a little creative with my laundry times in order to ensure I got in when it was open. There is a laundromat about 5-10 minutes away that was well reviewed online, and a dry cleaner/laundry service in the strip mall across the street that is very reasonably priced and efficient.
If you plan on driving/commuting on I-95 from here, be warned the morning traffic going northbound into DC is insane, starting near the Dumfries road exit. In the afternoon, the southbound I-95 lanes seem to become a parking lot starting as early as 1 or 2 pm some days and continuing until 7 or 8 pm. You have to be ready to sit in traffic if you are trying to get back to the hotel from the north in the evenings - regardless of the route you choose. Welcome to northern Virginia gridlock!
Highly recommend this hotel if you have business or other events in the immediate area!
