Priceline bidding went awry, and I ended up with the Holiday Inn Express in Springfield. I had passed this place many times when it was still a bonafide Holiday Inn. I expected the worst, but was pleasantly surprised! I arrived at midnight to a cheerful, friendly, and helpful Ericka at the front desk. She efficiently checked me in to a nonsmoking room with 2 double beds. The facility itself is old; the hallways to the rooms were dark and a bit dingy (on the second floor). The room was clean and orderly, decorated as one would expect. The bed was clean and comfortable. The pillows, a little thin. The deluxe continental breakfast room was an unexpected pleasure; the staff kept it well-stocked even with a lobby jammed with high schoolers! The 100% guarantee is a nice feature; there was nothing I could complain about!
If you're in the Springfield area, or looking for a decent place within 9 miles of Washington, then this would be the place. All in all, not a bad stay!
