Located just of the interstate, and at one end of the main street of town, the Holiday Inn Express is a great place to overnight when visiting Abingdon. The staff is friendly, the lobby and rooms are clean, and the beds are comfortable. An all 'round winning combination.

This is a well-priced hotel, very nicely located for just about anything in Abingdon. We stayed here 2 years in a row while attending plays at the Barter Theatre. Employees are nice and helpful, and the location great. We will be there next year, allso!

This is a very comfortable, basic place to stay just off Interstate 81 in Abingdon, VA. you'll need a car to reach the downtown area which is worth the short drive. Beds are super comfy, room is quiet, A/C & Heater work very well. Room was fresh, clean and bed was divine.

The folks who work here are the best feature. The exterior is boxy, as are the rooms. We had a lot of noise from an adjacent room, which was disappointing. The man next door was just making phone calls, but we could hear every word...and every belch...and so on. Breakfast options were standard fare, and Jane provided friendly, courteous service,...
