As we looked up reviews and values we knew that we could have confidence in the Holiday Inn Express experience. This location did not disappoint. We got a Saturday night room on short notice and it was a spacious room with very little outside noise. Comfortable and clean and relaxing after a long day on the road. Breakfast was nice,...

We went to Abingdon to ride the VA Creeper Trail and to see a show at the Barter Theater in October 2016. We chose this hotel since it had good ratings and was close to all our activities.

Thank you for your recent review and feedback of your stay at our hotel. We certainly apologize for the issue you had.

Traveling for work and I had a 5 hour drive to get to this hotel. Very tired and stiff from sitting so long. I asked if I could get the upgrade to one of the jacuzzi rooms and was lucky. The jacuzzi did the trick. Be careful, because it does get a little slick around the tub. Great friendly staff...

We typically drive from Nashville TN to right outside Baltimore Md. We have 4 kids so we have to split the drive up. Found this Holiday Inn Express cheap so decided to give it a try. Clean rooms, friendly staff and location made this a perfect stay for us. Would definitely stay here again
