I was attending training in Reston, so I needed a hotel to stay in. The Holiday Inn Express was a great, low cost hotel. The elevator is slow, but that was the only downside of the hotel. The staff at the front desk were friendly, the room was comfortable, and the breakfast was plentiful.

Front desk attendant was very nice and helpful. Hotel was very nice except when we went to go to the breakfast in the morning. The elevator repairman rode down in the elevator with us. The elevator made strange grinding sounds. He claimed it was okay. When we rode the elevator back up to our room, it thumped and made a...

I had just come off of several weeks of staying at boutique hotels in San Diego and other large cities and was amazed at how I had been nickeled and dimed with fees for everything from internet access to coffee to local phone calls. I stayed at this hotel because the big boys I normally stay in at Dulles were...

The first room I got put in was super tiny and smelled of smoke, but was supposed to be non-smoking. That wasn't the worst. The pillows looked like they were wrinkled from someone sleeping on them so I pulled down the sheets just to check....I swear there were pubic hairs in the bed! Someone didn't feel like changing the sheets...

Hello, I’m so sorry you had such a bad experience while you were with us. Our housekeeping staff is usually quite diligent in making sure our rooms are in perfect condition for new guests. Unfortunately, the first room you were assigned was supposed to be occupied for another two nights by the previous guest, who had a last minute change...

Stayed here for 5 days. Great value for money. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast is decent. Location is quite good. The shopping area directly opposite the hotel offers you enough eating options to choose from.

A very good Holiday Inn Express. Friendly, efficient staff. Clean rooms. Adjacent to a Safeway supermarket and across the street from restaurants and an organic food store ("Mom's'). Don't be misled by the very old Google Maps street view you might see --- the adjoining area has changed a lot since the street view I saw. Very close to the...

Less than 30 minutes from Washington, DC. Not a bad drive considering the price you would pay if staying by the National Mall. Close to lots of eateries and the breakfast was superb. The place was clean though some reviews says otherwise. We traveled all over the world and we meticulously search for hotels that are clean, no pets allowed...

I stayed her for 6 days while attending a training class at Oracle for work. The hotel was nice and close to a lot of eating places. The breakfast buffet was absolutely wonderful! They had it all, biscuits, pancakes, sausage, eggs, bacon, fruit, cereal, cinnamon rolls, etc... The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The night before leaving, a storm...

This was a fine stay...nothing great (except the service) and nothing terrrible. This hotel is a little outdated and could use a facelift. My room wasn't dirty by any means, but could use a little work. For the price it was a fine stay. The location was great for my needs and they have a shuttle service.

I have followed Tripadvisor's ratings and reviews all over the country. This is the first time I strongly question the reviews. I have been put here with a group of five coworkers and we are all in agreement. One coworker moved her room due to bugs. So on the Seven Dwarfs theme... Sheets = sandpaper.

I’m so sorry to hear you were unhappy with your experience at our hotel. When your company decided to house you with us instead of the Hyatt Regency we knew we had big shoes to fill. As you and many others noted in your review, we really do have a great staff that does everything possible to make sure you...
