We stayed in this Holiday Inn Express for one night while passing through. We normally are very pleased with this chain but this one was not quite up to par. The room had a mildew / wet smell to it. My wife noticed it even more than I did since she is more sensitive to odors. After we went out for dinner we went to a local Wal-Mart and purchased a couple of scented candles. This took care of the problem for us. If we were staying more than one night I would not have stayed in this room. However, after carrying all of our luggage up to the room, I thought we would be OK for a night.
The room was clean and the reception at the front desk was pleasant.
Breakfast the next morning was good, not great. Don't expect a breakfast that's up to a restaurant standard and you'll do fine.
We reported the smell the next morning when checking out and was surprised that the front desk was not too concerned about it. We were told that it was probably from the AC needing a filter change and that they would check it out. No big deal from them.
If staying in Rocky Mount, VA again I probably would see what other options were there for a motel. I expect higher standards from Holiday Inn Express.
