Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Smithfield-Selma I-95
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Smithfield
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Smithfield Holiday Inn Express was a nice stay, we didn't arrive until late and check in was very quick which made us happy because we were weary from travelling all day. Harmon and Jennifer at the front desk were so pleasant that you can't help but smile no matter how tired you are. The rooms were spotless and the beds were so comfy. Nice and restful...morning breakfast was fine, nothing spectacular but good...would stay here again! This was a stop on our way to Florida and wanted to go to the Ava Gardner Museum, which we also enjoyed. Would recommend this hotel.

Dear Travelbug325,

Thank you so much for your recent stay and high remarks on our hotel & team. We know how important it is to have a quick and nice person waiting for you after a very long trip. I am so excited to see that both Harmony & Jenn were one of your many highlights of your stay, they are both very valuable assets to our team. A smile does not cost a thing but does go a very long way ... making a not so nice day into a delight. I love hearing that you also enjoyed our spotless and comfy rooms. Excellant Customer Service & Cleanliness are always most important to us and guests like yourself. We are excited to be your new "home away from home" while in the area. Please come back and see our team ... Smithfield has so many wonderful things to do while in the area. Hope all is well and have a blessed day!

This is one of the best Holiday Inn Express facilities. Great staff from the front desk to the housekeeping.
As we were checking out we had the pleasure of meeting the GM who was most gracious. We certainly will make this our overnight stop as we travel south. The location is perfect for shopping the outlets and dining.
Star quality!!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Hotel was great! Clean and fairly new. "Free" breakfast could have been better. Hotel was right off the highway. Lots of restaurants and gas stations close by. Carolina Premium Outlet Mall is less than 5 min away.

The front desk staff were quite friendly and made you feel very welcomed. The pool was nice and clean. Gym states no children under 16 without an adult , unfortunately, not followed by parents or enforced by anyone. Breakfast was less than mediocre, we arrived at 9am (ends at 10 on weekends), most choices were empty and not being restocked. Our room was very large, beds were comfy, but as noted by others you could hear your neighbors and those in the hallway. Disappointed that our bathroom items/soap were not replenished during our stay.

Room Tip: Upper floor not directly in front - due to movie theater traffic and lights from main entrance

I will be looking into your concerns further to ensure this does not happen again. We know in a world of choices, we want to be your number 1 ... and try to strive to be better and better each day.

This hotel is obviously pretty new. The lobby and staff were great. The pool was nice. Breakfast was pretty mediocre but standard fare for this chain, i think. The coffee was good - very nice! While our room was pretty large, and the bathroom was very nice (including lemony products), the walls were way too thin. Falling asleep, we could hear people TALKING in the room next door, we could hear people talking in the hallway and doors opening/shutting on our floor, and we could hear noises from floor above. Everything was going well for this place until we went to fall asleep - it's right off the highway, there are several restaurant choices and some outlets nearby, even a cinema across the street. But, my three stars are for the noise factor, which i think is simply unacceptable for a new hotel.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, get a room on the top floor so at least you won't hear noise from above.

Was travelling up the dreaded I-95 from SC and needed a place to crash. Checked a couple places and the HI Express had availability. The price was a little steep but the front desk staff were great and the room was very nice.

Don't look for a healthy breakfast as the free benefit is the typical lousy food but for kids it is a great value. Also, did not use all the amenities but the hotel was well maintained.

Look no further for a great stop when heading south on I-95! Especially if you're road weary from traffic delays through VA. Worth plugging on to get to this spot. Staff was extremely friendly, hotel is fresh and clean. If you arrive early enough, there's shopping, restaurants even a movie theater on your doorstep. Room was great, no complaints. Would definitely choose this hotel again!
