“Nice hotel with convenient location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

The Holiday Inn Express in Burlington is located just off I-40 and is easy to access from the road. It's located right next door to Outback and a short drive from Alamance Crossing, a newer shopping facility that has nice places to eat and a movie theater.

Breakfast at the hotel is good, better than similar hotels in this price range. The workout room is large and has multiple televisions, one of the nicer eliptical machines I've seen in a hotel and even boasts some free weights.

The pool is outdoors (no hot tub) and has nice sitting area. It's a nice place to sit and relax whether you are swimming or not.

Overall I think you'll enjoy the hotel. I did have multiple problems with my magnetic key; you may want to get a new one every time you head to your room - that's a recommendation from the receptionist.

Great Hotel! Clean. nice bathroom. Flat screen TV. Full buffet breakfast with eggs, bagels, potatoes. Only had bacon one morning. Very friendly staff. I was traveling with my basketball team and we were very happy for the self service laundry room. We took full advantage of being able to wash and dry the uniforms right there in the hotel.Lots to eat near by.. IHOP right across the parking lot. Also Outback. Down the street you have Golden Corral, chick fila. panda express and Cook out restaurants. About 20 min drive to Greensboro. VERY SATISFIED!! Would definately stay again.

Nice hotel been recently refurbished. Quiet rooms with great new breakfast area lounge and good selection for breakfast. Close to shopping and many other local shopping areas. 2 queen beds is a bonus in rooms with microwaves and mini-fridge . 2 free computers in lobby as well as hotel wi-fi in rooms. Did not use outdoor pool but looked good. Could get coffee/juices and oatmeal in breakfast area late at night which was added value.

We stayed here the weekend of April 20-21, for an event at Elon, where our son attends college. This is the first time that we have stayed here - having stayed at the Hampton Inn and other places. This was by far the best accomodations in the area. I received the government employee rate which was a very good deal for the caliber of room. The room was very quiet although we were on the first floor. It was very clean and well situated (we had a King). Bathroom was modern and the carpeting was new. You could tell it had recently been remodeled.

Breakfast was satisfactory, with scrambled eggs, pastries, cereal, pancakes and yogurts to choose from - coffee and juices were plentiful. There was also biscuits and gravy. No bacon or sausage was offered. Overall I was very pleased with the accomodations and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. The front desk was pleasant and accomodating. Housekeeping was present and helpful.

As other posters said, it's obvious that this was an older hotel which has been renovated, but overall, they did a very nice job. Our room was clean, beds were comfortable, internet service was good, and the flat screen tv was nice. The hotel is located in a very commercial area with many well-known restaurants and shopping destinations nearby (some within walking distance). Our check-in and check-out were quick and hassle-free. The only minor disappointment we experienced was that the water pressure in the shower was very low -- both in the evening and the following morning. Still, with everything else being extremely nice for the price, we would definitely stay at this hotel again.

GREAT place. I've been to places more expensive that weren't as nice. It was either new or freshly remodeled, and they did a great job. Very nice towels, beds, counters, etc. Staff was very friendly. Full hot breakfast included, along with workout room, free wi-fi, and INDOOR pool, which we had to ourselves. This great location is just out of town far enough to not be busy, but has plenty of restaraunts and stores close-by for whatever you may need.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, request a room away from the pool, as the sound tends to carry quite a bit.

The poor lady at the front desk was overwhelmed. She kept trying to over compensate to placate everyone in line, just making check-in for each person take that much longer. A second employee was needed-badly.
After waiting at least 10 minutes to check in, we went to our room and everything was perfect. The executive king room was large, clean and nicely decorated. Nice mattress and nice bathroom amenities. Breakfast was good.

My husband and I stayed in 3 motels northbound and southbound on a vacation in FL. Burlington was the only city where we encountered rude, impatient people. What happened to southern charm?

Room Tip: Don't eat at the nearby seafood restaurant-bad service, bad food
