I was on my way up I-95 when I stopped at the Holiday Inn (NOT the Holiday Inn Express, but another hotel in Winchester) for a night's rest. That hotel was an old motel with outside doors. The clerk was taking forever to check in a Canadian couple, so I took out my notebook and borrowed their wifi to find that there was a HI Express just down the road. I didn't stay there. Instead, after dinner at the Cracker Barrel, I drove down the bypass to the Holiday Inn Express. I'm glad I did.
The people at the HI Express were wonderful. When they found out that I was a Priority Rewards member, they upgraded my room to a beautiful suite. The only downside was that it faced the back of the hotel where there was an exit ramp from the Winchester bypass. There was a lot of truck traffic during the night. If you can, ask for a room facing the front of the hotel and you should be fine.
The bathroom was immaculate and the hot shower felt great. Breakfast in the morning with a cup of coffee to go was just what I needed to get me going. I would definitely stay here agin.
