“Very pleasant stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We stayed here last weekend. The facility was clean, service good, breakfast was good, staff was pleasant and helpful, and the area was nice. Our check of Trip Advisor reviews prior to this visit had shown some concerns but we found none. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Nice size room with queen beds. Large bath with great shower.

My wife and I stopped here over night on a motorcycle trip. This is a very nice Holiday Inn Express, which like many of the brand has been recently updated.
We got caught in several down pours and were still quite wet when we pulled in. The receptionist invited us to keep the bike under the front entry out of the rain where they could keep an eye on it. This is always much appreciated.
My wife spent part of the evening drying out out wet riding gear using the guest laundry, which is conveniently located near the breakfast area.
Its inconvenient to walk anywhere from this property. We did cross the busy street (no cross walks) to get to Applebees for dinner though.

Thank you for the great comments you posted regarding our Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Rocky Mount, Virginia. As an experienced traveler, you understand how important a clean, comfortable room and friendly staff are. We take great pride in our hotel and are happy to hear that your stay was pleasant and that we met your expectations.

I am glad we had a place to store your bike during the heavy rains. Regarding our location, we are on the opposite side of the road but there is a stop light that was just put in for the safety of our guests. It is a short walk over to the mall area that features shopping, fast food and an Applebee’s.

Thanks again for the positive comments and if you are traveling through our area again in the future I hope you will choose our hotel for your stay.

The front desk folks were courteous and helpful. There was zero musty odor when I walked into my room. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and A/C worked perfectly, the bathroom was spacious and the shower was lovely. The breakfast--while it didn't have endless selections--was more than adequate, certainly everything I could have wanted. Their coffee was especially good. I liked the fact that the room doors open to an interior hallway instead outside. There was plenty of parking even though the hotel was full. I will definitely stay here again.

Comfortable and very clean. The furnishings are plain, but spotless. A great value for the money. The staff was friendly and helpful when asking for directions. The only negative was the morning supervisor seemed disorganized and flustered.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express May 3rd, 2013. This was our first stay at a Holiday Inn. We were down to see my brother graduate from Ferrum College, about 15 minutes away from this hotel. We had no peoblems with parking and it was free. The hotel staff was happy, pleasant, and helpful our whole trip. Our room was clean and our bed was super comfy. The hotel in general was quiet and peaceful. There are plenty of shops and a few food places to eat within walking distance, or a short drive. All in all we had a great stay, If I was ever going through that way again I would most def. be stopping here again. Thank You for the awesome stay!!

Stayed here a couple of times while at Smith Mountain Lake. Very easy to get to and close to 220 and great prices (king bed non smoking $100). Rooms have always been clean and beds comfortable. Close to a few places to eat, has an indoor pool that was nice. Breakfast in the morning has many choices. Will be staying again this summer!

Stayed one night during a recent power outage at our nearby home. Staff was friendly, room was VERY spacious, CLEAN and LARGE bathroom, 32" LCD tv, microwave, fridge and wet bar in room. COMFY beds/pillows - even the sleeper sofa slept comfortably. Stayed in one of the "big rooms" that has two queens and a sleeper sofa - plenty of room for our family of 6. Air conditioning and heat worked great. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and breakfast matron was continually putting out fresh food and cleaning counters. Hotel is right in the heart of EVERYTHING - Kroger grocery store, Walmart, Auto Zone, CVS pharmacy, Bojangle's, Quizno's, Cook Out, Applebee's, and more are all w/in feet!! THIS is the place to stay!
