We stayed here when we were visiting Washington D.C. for a weekend. The two nights we spent here were quiet and comfortable. We arrived to find an accommodating hotel clerk (despite the late hour of our arrival) and when we got to our rooms we were pleasantly surprised to find a spotless room where we were able to get plenty...

Smaller hotel. The room is modern and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The air conditioning system is a bit dated but works well. Sufficient breakfast included. There was a small high pitched noise from my bathroom about 11am which stopped by its own accord after 15 mins.

When we are traveling, we are seeking cleanliness, comfort, friendly helpfulness, and convenient breakfast (with a little extra time given with no fuss). For this kind of travel, this was our 5 star. The king bedrooms was a bit small, but we found it well designed for comfort with the space given... and we travel with extra gear, finding spaces... More

We stayed here as a family on the way home from vacation. We arrived late at night. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful with local information. Our first room was not ready so they upgraded us and refunded some of our rewards points which was not necessary but shows great customer service. The room was very clean... More

First off, this was what I'd expect for a Holiday Inn: quiet, fairly clean, courteous staff. They didn't do anything to blow me away, but it wasn't horrible either. The room was comfortable and it was fairly easy to get to (I did drive by a few times but that's because it's a building on a very crowded street). There... More

Customer service was great but this certainly isn't one of the newer properties that you'll stay at. Cleanliness wasn't necessarily the issue but it seems that it needs to be updated. Wall unit for the A/C was very loud and the temperature control was broken so I was up several times during the night to turn the air on and... More

As far as the facility, this is your usual Holiday Inn Express. However, what makes it special is the service. Both people I talked with at the front desk were extremely friendly and very helpful. It seemed that whatever you needed to do or to know was no problem. The same was true at the breakfast buffet. The lady that... More

Great staff, very clean hotel, very clean rooms. Bed was newer and I had a good sleep. But the rooms are very tiny and the bathroom is one of the smallest I've seen in a Holiday Inn. I would not recommend this hotel to a family but it is fine for a business trip.

I was displaced from my home for about a week because of flooding. Barbara, at the front desk, was awesome! She was so kind to me and my family. She would greet me and my family each day. I was nervous about repairs made to my home and Barbara would let me talk with her. It really calmed me down.... More
