“Perfect Location for a trip into DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We had a party of 7 travelling from Chicago to DC. We stayed at this hotel, which was just a few minutes away from the Huntington Station Metro stop. The hotel provided a free shuttle to the Metro from 7am-10pm. This was a sparkly clean and very friendly hotel. The staff was excellent, especially Fred, David, Corey, Nancy and Phillip. There were school tour buses staying there while we were there, but you wouldn't know it! The hallways had a monitor that kept the kids quiet which was much appreciated! The breakfast was yummy and plentiful! Very pleased!!

I was a little skeptical about this place as I had never stayed here but it is just perfect. The rooms are beautiful and large, the parking lot is huge, and it's not far from dc. If I could choose a place that's outside of the city this would be it.

I was very pleased to have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. It is one of the nicer budget motels that I have stayed at. All of the amenities are great and appreciated.

The best part of my motel experience was the staff! Very helpful and very friendly and very accomodating. Phillip, Corey, and Fred stand out as assets to the property.

The first time I stayed was after their sister property next door wouldnt extend my stay, but
Phillip was excellent in accomodating me.

By using our Priority Rewards Points, we earned one of the worst rooms in the place. The other guests were loud and noisy late at night. The worst feature was the lack of blackout curtains that would close out the bright lights and heavy traffic from Highway 1. Even though we asked for a quieter room, we stayed ground level, facing the road.

The service was very good in spite if the poorly located room. The staff was courteous and friendly. The hotel was clean and updated with a nice, open breakfast room. Breakfast was average with paper thin bacon and so-so scrambled eggs but plenty of it. The facility is quite nice so the right room with curtains that close or a higher floor in the back could change the whole experience.

Thank you so much for complimenting the staff. Have a wonderful summer and please come back and see us the next time you are in Washington D.C.

I gave this hotel 4 stars because of a few small things that I didn't like. First, there is no safe in the room, so I had to take my valuables with me. Most places I've been to lately have all had safes, so for a major hotel chain to not have them in the room was a bit off putting to me. Second, the hotel is next to a really shady motel area where there were a few people driving in and out of. My wife watched some people who looked like they were making drug deals and driving away. Now to the positives. The room we stayed at was a king suite. It was HUGE. There was a nice living area that had a pretty comfy couch and even a small eating table. There is a small kitchenette area that had a microwave, refrigerator, and sink. The TV channel selection was actually quite good, considering hotels usually only provide a handful of channels. The room was clean, the maid service was prompt and thorough.

Thank you for taking time to write a great review on Trip Advisor. I do apologize about the safe, we do have safes behind the front desk where our guests receive a key and can place their belongings. We hope that the next time you are visiting the Washington D.C. area you will stay with us again.

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for three nights while we visited near-by Mount Vernon and Washington, DC. Our room was very clean and spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. The complementary breakfast had a good selection of items from which to choose, and the staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. The staff members with whom we had contact and who were very friendly and helpful were Kelvin and Paul at the front desk, Nancy who made sure that everything was available at breakfast, and Phil, Fred and David who were helpful when we took the complementary shuttle to and from the Metro station. I would definitely stay at this place again.

Room Tip: Very convenient for visiting Mount Vernon and Washington, DC.
