Ample parking. Several restaurants nearby. Very friendly staff. Room is very clean with comfortable beds. Can not change settings on the TV to allow us to watch movies we brought with us. More than enough outlets for all our toys, including several USB outlets, WIFI in the room. Pleasant hotel to stay at!

Found this Holiday Inn Express using my TripAdvisor App. Nice hotel but heater in our room did not work. The front desk person got us another room almost directly across the hall. Coral a nice place with friendly staff.

I would have given this a five rating except that they have not completed an unnecessary upgrade and workmen are running around replacing carpet and pictures etc. The staff is very friendly and attentive to the needs of the guests both two and four footed. Although not a gastronomic tour to force the free breakfast is way better than most....

We stayed one night on our way home from Asheville. Easy to find off the freeways, with an Applebees restaurant right next door (and a discount for showing your room key if you eat there). Spacious room and bathroom, and good breakfast the next morning. Only issue was the temperature control on the shower was a bit quirky. Perfect for...

This HIE is located just off the intersection of I-81 and I-64. The hotel is next to an Applebee's so you don't have to drive to dinner if you don't want to. The hotel feels fairly new, very clean with spacious rooms. WiFi works very well. The breakfast buffet was typical HIE, nothing special but quite satisfactorily. To our surprise,...

Ok place for overnight. Clean and friendly. We didn't eat breakfast there. Finding a place nearby for dinner was a challenge. The choice was Applebee's or Ruby Tuesday's. Check out was easy. Desk staff ok.

We're HI Express regulars. This one seemed above the average--staff, public areas, cleanliness, maintenance, easy access to Lexington locations. One downside: primary outside seating is in an enclosed atrium courtyard with a fishbowl quality.

Stayed here several times over the last four years. Son is a cadet at VMI. Excellent Hotel, excellent staff. Grace, Assistant General Manager is wonderful, has gone out of her way many many times. Close to VMI and W & L.

I was happy to get a room here as there was a horse event going on in town, and many places were booked. Holiday Inn is one of my most favorite places to stay, and this was definitely a very nice hotel. Staff was very efficient and friendly. Breakfast was very good. I normally just have coffee and a bagel,...

The staff (Tamara & Donna) are to be commended for a job well done in accommodating my mother-in-law who has MS with a handicap room. The room met our needs beyond our expectations and made our stay very enjoyable. Definitely looking forward to our return.
