Reviewed 8 July 2013

I was in town on business, and I stayed at this property because it was a better value compared to many others in the region. My stay was okay, but not with out flaws. Upon checking in, I found the staff friendly and accomadating. I found my room okay, but it had an overall stale/ musky smell/ odor. Even with the AC running, the odor persisted (thought it might be humidity). In addition, the HVAC unit, even with a fan on mode was noisy(excessive rattle) when the AC compressor cut on and off. The room fixtures were dated, bed/ pillows were okay. As for the internet service, it worked, but was slower than many other properties (seemed dated). Breakfast was the usual HIE grub. There are no resturants closer than a mile +/-. This will not be my first choice when I return to the area, but its okay if you are not too picky.

Clean hotel, clean rooms! Nothing wrong with this location! There were fresh apples in the lobby in the day and at night the clerk baked cookies! Haven't had breakfast yet but I expect that to be quality!

I stayed here for four nights with my family while work was being done on our house. The sales mgr put together a package for us for a 2 room suite. The entire staff was very friendly and accomodating. My 6yr old son felt like he was on vacation-hot breakfast every morning, fresh cookies at the reception counter when we came in every afternoon, and swimming in the pool in the evening. The experience was great. I stay at many HEI hotels, but none better than this one. Thanks to the staff and management!

Just recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Chesapeake Va... and it was not the experience we're used to at one of these facilities. Clearly asked for a non smoking room, and even though we booked it a few days in advance, we were told it wasn't available on check-in. The room was paid for days in advance, and the only way to get a non-smoking room was to upgrade to a better room for a fee.... that set the stage for a less than pleasant stay... the normally good breakfast bar was not up to speed also, as their pancake machine was broken down... place wasn't as clean as most, especially in the areas you don't always look... like the elevator nooks and corners, just sloppy cleaning... won't be staying there again...

If you're a business traveler like me who needs a good value and a quality hotel, stay at this hotel. The people at Holiday Inn Express hotels are consistently focused on good service. The rooms are simple but comfortable and clean. The internet is fast, the breakfast is healthy and free. And the price is right. It may sound simple but getting all of these things right consistently is surprisingly hard to do. And this hotel is yet another example of how this chain does things right.

Was on a business trip over the duration of Hurricane Sandy. The wonderful staff at this Holiday Inn Express took care of all the needs of guests staying with them. They never missed a beat, never loss power, always had food and coffee, and always had smiles on their faces.

The management also bought back Wednesday Night Manager Meal. It's a first for this establishment, but is common with most Holiday Inn Expresses. This is just an outstanding move! It goes that extra mile and will ensure I always stay with them in the future.

Room Tip: No issue with any rooms. Some do have mold around the tun and soap holders....
