I took the time to write a review when Holiday Inn sent me the feedback link...they rejected it due to "irrelevant and/or inappropriate" content...what does that mean?? CONS: overpriced for a rural area, only one other hotel in this small town and feel like they take advantage of customers because of that...$119 and up! HK knocked on door before 10...

We have stayed here numerous times throughout the years to travel to and from Smith Mountain Lake. It is approximately 30 minutes away and a very nice drive.

We spent the day at Smith Mountain Lake and decided to get a room at the HI express in Rocky Mount. When we walked in at about 10:30PM, this guy comes staggering to the desk from the office. The small part of his tie was about 6" long and sticking straight out to the side. The long part of his...

Like any holiday inn it was clean and the staff was very friendly. We used a handicapped room for the first time as we're very pleased with the room. My back was really bothering me and the availability of the sit-down shower was very nice. The breakfast was typical Holiday Inn,plenty and good. My only problem is with the t...

Stayed 4/20. Rocky Mount, VA is a smaller city and the hotel is on the main road through town. Parking is adequate. Our check in was friendly and professional and the room was clean, comfortable and well maintained; however there was no fridge/MW. Free Wi-Fi was available and worked well. There is also a guest laundry which we used. Applebee's...

Drove down from Maryland for a weekend of NASCAR racing and this hotel was one of the few (in my opinion) that wasn't raising the rates for the race. The drive to the track was only 30 minutes and we considered that a good option. The lady at the front desk was VERY friendly and got us checked in early...

My wife and I were away and visiting the area for the NASCAR event in Martinsville. Our check in for Friday was interesting. The first 2 rooms were totally unacceptable.

Nice hotel, clean with lots of nice little touches. Friendly and accommodating staff. Very good breakfast selection with hot options and a one button - fresh pancake machine. Beds might be a little too soft for some, but just right for others.

We spent two nights here on Oct. 21 & 22, 2014 and this hotel does not compare to other Holiday Inn Express hotels we have stayed at.
