Very nice hotel! We booked a suite and it was bigger than most we've stayed in. Breakfast buffet was great. Location next to highway so hard to fall asleep at first....noise

This inn meets the standards I have come to expect from the Holiday Inn Express -- a clean, comfortable, stylish room and public areas, efficient and polite check in, excellent bed and bedding, lots of good variety for breakfast, etc. Though I believe this is a new hotel, it is already beginning to show some wear and tear -- there were rips in the curtains in our room (but sort of hard to see at first given the fabric pattern, which may explain why no repairs had been done) and the bathroom tile grout is cracking. But believe me, this outstanding a property on I 95 is a FIND!! We will stay again on our next trip south.

I was totally shocked by the EXCELLENT decor of the room. I had a king room suite. Bedding was outstanding. Room was very clean and neat. The suite layout was outstanding. I've seen other Holiday Inn Express and this is HEAD and SHOULDERS above the rest.

Recently spent a night at the Holiday Inn Express in Petersburg/Ft. Lee, VA. This place was wonderful -- the room we were given exceeded our expectations -- jacuzzi and all -- great bedding. We reserved a standard room and got upgraded to a suite. Complimentary breakfast was great also. Easy access off I-95. I can't say enough about this place. We were on our way to Myrtle Beach and will stop there again. Staff was excellent also.

We went to this hotel after leaving the Sleep Inn Roanoke Rapids, NC. We did not have a reservation and did not mind paying extra money. The hotel was really modern, nice and clean. If you are driving back north from Myrtle Beach this is a nice place to stop.

  • Liked — The welcoming lobby and the room was very nice. The bed linnens were great.
  • Disliked — nothing

This is a great new place with a very attractive modern decor. The pool was not large, but not small and had a small hot tub. The room was spacious and CLEAN. The breakfast was tasty and the server kept the buffett well stocked. There was a hot option and make your own waffles. This place seems stuck with a bunch of other hotels off the interstate ramp. However if you drive just a mile or so up the highway you will come to a mall with fast food and chain dining establishments. As we didn't arrive until 9 pm we ate at the most hip Arby's I've ever seen. (Bet you never expected to see those 2 words together but if you go there you'll see what I mean.) Petersburg itself is a few miles up the road. We read about the crater from the civil war and it wasn't much to see. Overall, this is a great stop along the highway and I would definately recommend it.

I don’t know why people come to this area, but if you’re here this is the place to stay.
Conveniently located off the interstate and adjacent to Hampton Inn , Days Inn, Travelodge, and Comfort Inn.
If you haven’t been to a HI express lately, you should. The bedding and toiletries are as good as a 4 star hotel. The complementary breakfast was above average. The indoor pool and Jacuzzi was enjoyable. The rooms are spacious and clean. Military and gov’t discounts accepted.
