Reviewed 9 June 2013

I was very pleased to have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. It is one of the nicer budget motels that I have stayed at. All of the amenities are great and appreciated.

The best part of my motel experience was the staff! Very helpful and very friendly and very accomodating. Phillip, Corey, and Fred stand out as assets to the property.

The first time I stayed was after their sister property next door wouldnt extend my stay, but
Phillip was excellent in accomodating me.

By using our Priority Rewards Points, we earned one of the worst rooms in the place. The other guests were loud and noisy late at night. The worst feature was the lack of blackout curtains that would close out the bright lights and heavy traffic from Highway 1. Even though we asked for a quieter room, we stayed ground level, facing the road.

The service was very good in spite if the poorly located room. The staff was courteous and friendly. The hotel was clean and updated with a nice, open breakfast room. Breakfast was average with paper thin bacon and so-so scrambled eggs but plenty of it. The facility is quite nice so the right room with curtains that close or a higher floor in the back could change the whole experience.

We appreciate you typing this review. Sorry to hear about the noise and the curtains. We would love for you to give us another try so can make sure you have a quiet room and black out curtains. Thank you so much for complimenting the staff. Have a wonderful summer and please come back and see us the next time you are in Washington D.C.

I gave this hotel 4 stars because of a few small things that I didn't like. First, there is no safe in the room, so I had to take my valuables with me. Most places I've been to lately have all had safes, so for a major hotel chain to not have them in the room was a bit off putting to me. Second, the hotel is next to a really shady motel area where there were a few people driving in and out of. My wife watched some people who looked like they were making drug deals and driving away. Now to the positives. The room we stayed at was a king suite. It was HUGE. There was a nice living area that had a pretty comfy couch and even a small eating table. There is a small kitchenette area that had a microwave, refrigerator, and sink. The TV channel selection was actually quite good, considering hotels usually only provide a handful of channels. The room was clean, the maid service was prompt and thorough.

Thank you for taking time to write a great review on Trip Advisor. I do apologize about the safe, we do have safes behind the front desk where our guests receive a key and can place their belongings. We hope that the next time you are visiting the Washington D.C. area you will stay with us again.

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for three nights while we visited near-by Mount Vernon and Washington, DC. Our room was very clean and spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. The complementary breakfast had a good selection of items from which to choose, and the staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. The staff members with whom we had contact and who were very friendly and helpful were Kelvin and Paul at the front desk, Nancy who made sure that everything was available at breakfast, and Phil, Fred and David who were helpful when we took the complementary shuttle to and from the Metro station. I would definitely stay at this place again.

Room Tip: Very convenient for visiting Mount Vernon and Washington, DC.

Corey, your driver was super to us ladies, and very carring. He even went next door to get us some bottled water, when your front desk had not restocked. A perfect gentleman, and David, your maintence chap even went up, collected my suitcase that US Airways had smashed, and reconstituted it, so I could get home. These are gems! As is Fred the shuttle driver.

Fridges could be colder, but the rooms are clean and breakfast was great every morning. Staff were helpful there too.
A total pleasure to stay with you. Others should consider it seriously!

I typically travel a few days per week for professional reasons. When I'm in Alexandria, I will often select this Holiday Inn for my stay.

The location is quite convenient via many hwys, though I would not suggest for Metro access. Parking is free, and the breakfast is one of the best in the city. It's also free. Where else are you going to get fresh fruit, hot cinnamon rolls, and biscuits and gravy? Truly, there are so many choices provided on their buffet that one would think she had paid top dollar for said meal.

The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Most importantly, the staff is quite professional. GM Amanda should be specifically mentioned. She's a hands-on GM who take the care of her guests quite seriously.

Just came back from a weekend in Washington DC - this hotel was an excellent location - did not take long to get in to the city to explore. Breakfast was fresh, some hot items included - nice eating area. Rooms were quiet - even with a group staying on the same floor.
Refrigerator and microwave in the room.
