“Good Holiday Inn Express”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Room was clean. used a coupon from the travel books. Decent price. Staff was so so. I had asked if there was anything in the afternoon, like a snack and was told no. Was a little disappointed to find out there were cookies. They were gone went I saw the container, which was not there earlier. When I mentioned it to the young lady at the desk, she said there were no more. The breakfast in the am was very good. Nice selection of foods. The room was clean and more then adequate.

This Holiday Inn Express lies at the upper end of the brand. It has friendly, efficient service folks at the front desk, large, well-equipped rooms, a good breakfast and decent fitness center with an indoor pool. The neighborhood is a bit on the isolated side, located near I-95 and I-295 south of Petersburg with not much around it except a couple of mom-and-pop restuarants and other hotels. But if you are visiting the Petersburg area and don't mind a drive to anyplace you are going, or if you are just driving by going north of south, this is a first rate place to lay your head.

Room Tip: Nanny's restaurant across the street is your best bet for supper close by

Staff was great. Hotel was very clean. Room was large and slept like a baby! Not much around in the area but it was worth the little extra drive ( 5 minutes). Nice breakfast with clean and up tp date dinning area.

We had reservations and our arrival went off w/o a hitch. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. Our room on the 2d floor was large, clean, and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good nights sleep after almost a 6 hour drive. The breakfast was okay, and unless you know your way around, it's the only game in the immediate area. The de-caf coffee was cold, the scrambled eggs were like rubber, and the bacon was swimming in grease. Good thing I like biscuits and gravy. : >) We'd stay here again, but find someplace else for breakfast.

We stopped this Holiday Inn Express to take a break from our long drive home from Florida. We got a great deal on the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable, it looked maybe recently redone. It was close to 95 and close to lots of different places for dinner. I would stay here again. My only complaint would be that there was only one chair in the pool room and there was so much chemical in the hot tub/pool you could taste it.

Being IHG members we have stayed at several of the We We have stayed at Holiday Inn Express with positive experiences in the past BUT this particular hotel should not qualify. Our priorities as guests are for safety, cleanliness and efficiency.
Staff was efficient and polite. Our room on 3 flr however had smugged sheets, beat up sticky furniture and the worst,a live lentil- sized bedbug under the pillow our 5 yr old's pillow. We brought the entire pillow to the desk. The hotel was booked and they would try to place us in a neighboring hotel.(I did see some "short term" customers coming in) After re packing were told there was one other room on the 5th floor that had had a leak if we would want to stay there. Mind you, it is now 1:30 in the morning. The room on 5 had clean sheets, no bedbugs that we could find and the same beat up sticky furniture.I still get the chills when I think about that night.Please know that the front desk and kitchen staff were wonderful.This would be the manager's responsibility.

Dear HelensMac:

We would like to take this time to sincerely apologize to you for the inconvenience that you experienced at our hotel. This is certainly a matter that has been taking seriously and would like to let you know that since then we have contacted our pest control company and had them start servicing that room. We understand that you did check in late and do hope that the Guest Service Representatives on duty that evening accommodated you and your family, I do hope that you will come back to visit us in the future when you are in town or just passing through. Again we do apologize to you and your family for any incovenience that this might have caused.
