“Good if you can find it....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

I stayed at this hotel in January 2014. The hotel is standard Holiday Inn Express. Reliable, clean and comfortable. My only minor complaint about the room was that there was only one bar of soap in the room. This may sound petty but most of us keep a bar of soap at the sink and one in the shower. I would like to do the same thing while I am traveling. This hotel does need to do something about getting people to their entrance from the roads surrounding the property. The building is clearly visible from MD 100 which runs behind the hotel. However once you get off the highway it is difficult to find the property because there seems to be a lack of signage. Also the actual driveway entrance is not clear at all. It is actually off a strip mall which you enter via a gas station. It was strange. Now that I know how to get there I would stay at this Holiday Inn Express again if I am in the area. Clearly directing people to the entrance of the hotel will get your guests in quickly and prevent wayward souls from getting frustrated. PS- Why is hotel Orange Juice always so weak? I know it is the most popular juice but it also tastes really bad when there isn't enough concentrate...

Room Tip: The back of the hotel faces MD 100 which is a major highway in the area. You may want a room on the...

We scheduled our family reunion at this HI Express. Melanie set up our block of rooms and booked the meeting space for our planned get-together. She is excellent to work with. All services we performed professionally and without error. Our out-of-towners were very happy with the accommodations and the public space for "hanging out." I'll definitely contact this hotel again for other events or visitors.

We stayed here 2 nights with our young children because of the indoor pool and complimentary breakfast. Everything was clean and quaint. Pool was comfortably heated (no shivering when entering), gym had a few free weights, 2 treadmills & an elliptical, breakfast had plenty of options (similar to a Hampton Inn), room was clean, but you can hear traffic from highway if your room faces in that direction, free wi-fi, aundry facility also available. It was the perfect option for us since we had children. There are also several restaurants within walking distance (tex-mex-awesome, italian-great, & asian-didn't try). A grocery store is around the corner less than .25 miles. And, the staff is friendly, too.

Stayed here on a road trip to Florida. Arrived about 9 pm after a long day of traffic from the Northeast. Staff was extremely friendly and check in was easy. Overall the hotel was not very busy maybe since it was the day after Christmas. Room was nice and clean as usual for most HIE. Wifi was easily accessible. I have only one minor negative comment. Breakfast was supposed to start at 6 am. This was not a problem for me as coffee was ready, but nothing else was. Several other patrons were visibly annoyed and I must admit I don't blame them. if you say 6 then the food must be out at 5:59, not 6:12. Looked like someone was a little late to work that morning. That happens, but worthy of comment. Overall the breakfast was fine. Since we did not leave until 7:30 no issue for us. Hotel is in a very good location, easy to find, just past Baltimore and before DC.

Stayed here again for our family Christmas trip. Everything was great at check-in. Plenty of free parking. Our room was great with our requested crib already inside. It was a little unusual that there was no housekeeping for New Year's Day (available on request). Unfortunately, we had a need for housekeeping and the staff member who showed up was very pleasant and helpful.

The pool was great this year. Clean and well-kept with plenty of towels.

The breakfast was great, as usual. We have been very happy to make staying at this hotel a standard part of our annual trip.

After a long day of traveling up the east coast and this was a great place to stop. My children enjoyed the pool and we all enjoyed the breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable. We are glad we stayed here.

I booked this hotel for a Christmas visit with family in the area. I have stayed here before, but not recently. Things do not appear to have changed, which in this case was for the good. The lobby was neat and functional (with two computers properly set off from the main traffic). The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious. The bed was comfortable and I got three good nights' sleep on the mattress. The bathroom was well-appointed; my only quibble is that here, as in most places I've stayed, one cannot seem to adjust the flow of the water from the shower. Overall, it was a very good stay, and I would come back here again.
