Spent one night during the Memorial Day weekend while seeing the Richmond sights. The hotel was spotless and the service was excellent. Got a very goor rate for a holiday weekend and upon check-in, we were given a free upgrade to a suite. The desk clerk was very curteous and helpful.

The hotel is convenient to I-95 and the room was clean and spacious. This is a very well managed property and I would highly recommend it to any traveler. Their service and the property exceeded my expectations.

A stopover point travelling from the NE to Wilmington, NC. We have stayed at other places in the area but this HI will probably become our choice going forward. Room was clean - we like clean over other amenities - and was 'roomy' not cramped. Staff was welcoming - buffet breakfast was as expected - enough to pick n choose from to have a satisfying breakfast.

Stayed here on our way back to New Jersey from Georgia based on reviews from Tripadvisor.com, and for the first time we were disappointed. We checked in on a Saturday night and the hotel was packed with teenagers running amuck. The room / suite appeared to be “recently updated”, but was done poorly at best. The room was not very clean and the carpet was dirty. The suite had a “creepy” feel and the door to the bedroom had a hole in it (as if this room was the setting of a bar room brawl or prom weekend gone bad). I would skip this HI Express and Petersburg, VA all together if you’re just passing through. I would recommend the Fairfield Inn in Richmond. The area is better all the way around and we spent the day there on our way south. Also, if you are ever in the Jacksonville, FL area try the HI Express in Jacksonville Beach, it was awesome.

I haven' t been in a Holiday Inn lately that actually had 4 large towels, doubles of all soaps, shampoos, conditioners and lotions. What a nice surprise. The management was interested in my opinion and I found the hotel to be A-1 for a Holiday Inn. This chain is making great headway in upgrading their hotels.

Upon arrival, we were greeted with bakery fresh cookies and a helpful hotel staff. We stayed there both coming and returning, and we therefore experienced two different rooms. Our king-sized bedroom was a two-room suite for under $100.The two rooms were joined by a small corridor with a bath, kitchenette with simple dishware and utensils, refrigerator, microwave. Nice bathroom. The first room had a couch, two arm chairs and a large screen TV. The bedroom had a leather armchair, another TV, a desk and chair and free internet connection. There were 5 lamps in all.

The downsides were small. On the first stay, we had a room with a malfunctioning hairdryer, which occasioned a 30- minute delay till we got a new one. Also a previous guest had alarmed the clock for an ungodly hour. Maybe the cleaning staff should disable alarms as part of their routine? Also the room was distinctly musty smelling upon entry, though running the a.c. cleared it up. On our second trip through Petersburg the room was fresh smelling. The only odd thing there was the lack of towel racks in the bathroom: the towels were rolled up spa-style , but after you showered there was no place, except over the door, to hang a damp towel. These were small quibbles, and fixable.

It was a terrific bargain. There was hot, buffet style breakfast included, served in a large attractive room. Across the street was the Lighthouse Restaurant with superb homemade ice cream, which they will also sell to you as take out, but don't make the mistake that we did--the second night-- of going back there for a full meal.

My husband Robert and I (Lois) stayed at this Holiday Inn and was really taken back at how friendly and nice the people there were. At the front desk Ashley and Alissa were so helpful whith everything, my husbands son Connor graduated from basic training at Fort Lee. Ashley and Alissa help us find the Fort and also a tatoo parlor for Connor. Our Suite was clean and beautiful. I just would like to say thank you too Ashley, Alissa, and the entire staff for a wonderful stay.
