maintained very well. The gallery room was prepared accordingly on a timely basis.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have the easiest access to everything.

We stayed in a suite with a kitchenette at the Holiday Inn Express in Lexington, VA. The room and bathroom were very clean. The beds are comfortable, but double sized and the pull out sofa bed is twin size so if you have six family members stay in the suite, I highly recommend a rollaway bed as well. There were two flat screen TVs in the suite which was great and the channels were easy to navigate. The breakfast was good. All of the staff that I encountered at the Holiday Inn Express were professional, accommodating and welcoming. We had a medical issue with smokers smoking on our floor at the *Nonsmoking* Wingate by Wyndham down the street the night before. At the Holiday Inn Express, there was not smoke on our floor and we had no issues, even though I think their 4th floor has smoking rooms. We were not affected by it on the 2nd floor. We did not have loud higway noise in our room like how we did at the Wingate and the air conditioning in our suite at the Holiday Inn Express worked superbly compared to the ineffective a/c unit we had in our room at the Wingate down the street. The room down the street also smelled of mildew and was not cleaned properly. We had a quiet, comfortable and restful nights sleep at the Holiday Inn Express and it was well worth the slightly higher room rate. The breakfast is the usual free hotel breakfast fare...it it is filling enough especially since it is free! We had plenty of hot water. We appreciated the free newspaper delivered outside of our room in the morning. The negatives I can think of are that there isn't a safe in the room and that the double size beds aren't queen sized. Some of the wall paper is outdated and the elevator small and the halls cozy, but this is all fine when we were able to sleep so well. I will definitely book here again.

Norma Jean kept the breakfast bar completely stocked at all times. Never ran out of cinnamon rolls, which is quite an accomplishment considering how popular they are. The area was always clean, and many items were available before and after the published hours. The rest of the stay was absolutely up to standards, but the breakfast bar was exceptional.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express overnight and it is a nice hotel. There was only one complaint that I had. When we got up for our shower the next morning the hot water was pretty much non existent. I had the hot water in the shower fully turned on and the water was just luke- warm. Other than that, it was a nice stay. The front desk clerk, Wanda, was very nice and always a smile on her face. the room was nice and clean and the beds were comfortable.

We were very pleased with our visit . We rented the suite which worked perfectly for 3 women going to a show at the Virginia horse center. (They could improve the sofa bed.). The staff was very friendly and helpful. Norma Jean at the breakfast bar could not have been more attentive and friendly. The breakfast of scrambled eggs was very good. Can't say that about the omelets... (I'd quit serving them.) However, there were many other choices so we didn't go hungry! (Boiled eggs, toast, cereal, etc.). We were surprised to find a kitchen and fridge in the suite. That was perfect! We were close to restaurants and the horse center so that was another plus. Overall, a very good experience..

This HI Express is in a good location and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast was good and fresh and the lady working there was very helpful and nice. Our room was nice; however, could have been a little cleaner. The biggest issue we had was the noisy heater unit in the room. It's one of those that turns on/off again throughout the night and is very noisy. Obviously we were disappointed to not get a better nights sleep; otherwise, the hotel is very pleasant.

This a nice inside hotel at an affordable price. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. It is close to the interstate and next to a quick mart for fueling and snacks. The breakfast was filling with a great variety to choose from. I will definitely stay here again on our travels to see the grand kids.
