Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ny36pitman Excellent staff at a good hotel, but I had a shabby room
I stay here frequently for business meetings in the Gaithersburg area and recommend this hotel overall as a good hotel with excellent staff. Unfortunately this time around I had a shabby room (South Tower #827) that had several things in disrepair.

Staff was first class all around. Check in was quick and easy, our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Next time we travel to the area, we will be staying here. Completely satisfied experience and they more than met all of our needs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hoser86 nice room but watch out for the breakfast
my reservation was for a queen or king size bed when we got to the room it was 2 full size beds which was ok. rooms facing the street has noise at all hours of the night due to the fire station right there. pool area is a little run down in the ceilings but otherwise nice. the breakfast is not free, vocher covers buffet but pay tax on top of it or god forbid you order off the menu for a ham and cheese omelet and coffee you will be paying some also almost no ham in it and never mind a waitress who spills coffee on you.

The hotel is showing some age - but still a good quality stay. The location is what keeps me returning - close to a customer site.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amm511 Exceptional staff and service
I stayed at this location for two weeks and do not have one complaint. The staff members were exceptionally professional and accommodating. The servicing of the rooms was also well done, day after day. Even though I was away from home for two weeks, this location made my time away from home bearable.
I give them 4.5 stars!!! The .5 is only because it wasn't the Ritz Carlton, so there has to be some room for the upscale facilities :)

I stay at this property often and it ranks at the top of my list for convenience, value, comfort, cleanliness and most importantly customer care by the staff.
I recommend this hotel to both business travelers and families on vacation.

The Holiday Inn at Gaithersburg offers tremendous service by very kind and caring individuals. The staff was helpful from the front desk to the restaruant staff. If you want to feel truly cared for I would recommend staying at the Holiday Inn at Gaithersburg.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Trip03 Odd experience
The negatives: The carpet in our room was dirty. The pillows and beds were uncomfortable and the room was dark due to a building right outside our window. We were a large party of guests in this hotel and everyone had a complaint about the location or the condition of their room. BEWARE the 1st floor is actually the basement (yes they have guest rooms in the basement) and the 2nd floor is really the ground floor, placing the rooms right by the convention room area. The breakfast buffet was expensive for the quality of the food, except for the melon that was ripe and sweet.
The positives: the bathroom was spotless and all the fixtures worked very well. The heating system actually warmed your room to the temperature stated on the thermostat and was very quiet. The staff was accommodating, helpful and polite and helped to make up for the hotels physical deficiencies.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unlucky1 Disappointed
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn a few times and have been very pleased with the overall service. Rooms are usually great, nice and clean, hotel has excellent amenities. However, during my last stay at the hotel , the hotel was conducting a water test and the water was turned off from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am the next morning. Had I known in advance of the water being turned off at the hotel, I would have stayed at another hotel that night. The staff did not mention the water turn off until after I had presented my credit card and paid for the room. After payment, the staff informed me of the water turn off and handed my a typed notice of the water turn off and two 16 oz. bottles of water to be used during the night to wash hand etc. The also stated I could request additional bottles of water if needed. I was very disappointed with the water turn off situation and feel that guest should have been informed of the water turn off prior to check in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jerry2 slight problem
Housekeeping did not clean my room on sunday feb. 24. Icalled front desk to report and had someone from housekeeping within 15 minutes. Front desk called within 45 minutes to make sure everything was done to my satasfaction, and was there anything that they could do. I found that the staff went out of their way to correct any problems for the guest. I stay in hotels and motels all over the country and none (to this point) have treated me to this level of customer satisfaction. When returning to this area will stay here and recommend this property highly. thanks for an excellent stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1jerryc Multiple trips
Work required that I stay in the Gaithersburg area on a recurring basis during the past couple of months, and I expect that pattern to continue for several more. I chose this location solely out of convenience prior to my first trip; I've returned because of the outstanding staff and comfort of the facility. Without exception, the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is tasty, abundant, and varies in items served. The bar is attractive with flat screens scattered around and tends to be quiet - bring a friend if you want companionship.
For my purposes, the facility is a great value. I recommend it highly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stanton unsurpassed customer service
I have had to visit this area multiple times over the last several years. This hotel has, as a result, become a second home. The rooms -- especially the renovated 7th-floor, north tower suites -- are great. The breakfast buffet is huge and delicious. The room service is prompt, and -- most important -- the staff is always gracious, polite, and focused on making my stay more than comfortable. I would not stay anyplace else.

This is my second stay at the Holiday Inn Gaithersburg and I have to say that both times I was extremely impressed. I was greeted as a platinum priority club member and both times I was given a nice upgrade for my status. Isidro the front desk manager was very kind and made sure my stay was the best. The rooms are very comfortable and at an awesome price. If you are in the area you will not find a better hotel. I will stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Logar Unusual bar experience
With only one location for an evening meal in the hotel, I varied the meals over three days, but chose the same draft beer each night. The first night I was billed $4.95, the second (at the bar with a testy woman bartender) I was billed $6.00 but chose not to raise the question because of her attitude. The last night I was billed $4.50 which seems to reflect choice or poor memory on the part of the wait staff.
The other meals and service were average to good for this type of hotel. The exercise facilities were excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by airplanehistorian If I had to pick a home away from home, this is the place to be
best staff in the world. their service and attention to detail is to be highly commended. I absolutely love this place to stay while visiting the Washington, D.C. area. It is so convenient to get to the Metro, but stil be in close proximity to a major shopping area.
It is a world class hotel which has many of the amenities that one looks for in a great hotel. If I were rich, I would actually would want to live there year round.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JLau Great hotel for business trip
I said so because i was there for business, the hotel has everything that business traveler need. The hotel recognized me as priority club member upon checked in and i appreciate the little privilege that given - priority club floor, some snacks and a free drink in the bar.
I must mention the O'Malley's pub at lower ground floor, it is a cozy bar and restaurant with affordable price, good place to relax after a long day.

- Friendly staff.
- Fast check in / check out.
- Decent price.
- Located in the middle of nowhere.
- The internet connection kept dropping off every 5 minutes (tech support couldn't do anything, and everyone else I spoke with had the same problem).
- The minifridge was very noisy.
- The room had a stale smell to it, almost like old cigarette smell. I had to clean my clothes when I got back home to get the smell out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maryw66 Great Stay
Our two-day stay was exceptional. Extremely attentive and interested staff, excellent food and high value! Exceptionally quiet, the beds were more comfortable than home, and our room was only a few steps from our vehicle. There was even a workable TV channel guide. Could not have asked for anything more.
This was almost derailed by the reservation I had made in September via Priority Club customer service being canceled, I have no clue why or how -- ! but I phoned the hotel directly the DAY BEFORE our trip (it was a 7 hour drive, so I called "just to be sure" everything was in order) and discovered we had NO RESERVATION - NO ROOM!! despite my having received an email confirmation in September (and NO further communications about it from IHG).
Thankfully the front desk gentleman who picked up the phone booked me a room (MORE thankfully there was a room available to book, the DAY BEFORE our arrival). Otherwise, we have never enjoyed a better stay anywhere. Had no room been available I am not sure what we would have done. And nobody can seem to tell me how a credit card-reserved room reservation (complete with confirmation number) could have been canceled, since I had not done it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Northstarr Enjoyed my stay,,,renovated room was great. The staff was very good.
This was probably the third or fourth time that I have stayed at the
Montgomery Village Hoiliday Inn. As usual,I was not disappointed, Had a renovated room on the 7th floor and was very comfortable.
The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was more than adequate. All in all I enjoyed my stay. Look forward to staying there again, if necessary.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Arby Avoid Room 712 at Gaithersburg Holiday Inn
My wife and I stayed in this property for 10 consecutive days. The staff members were helpful and polite, especially the hostess in the cafe; however, the room in which we stayed (#712) was in definite need of maintenance. Here's the rundown ("rundown" being a word that accurately describes the condition of the room):
-- the room had two telephones, but one was completely non-working; not even a dial tone.
-- the springs were shot in the only easy-chair in the room; sitting in the chair took us nearly to the floor.
-- a stand-type lamp, next to the broken easy-chair, did not turn on, even with a bulb change.
-- one of the few accessible electrical outlets did not work.
-- when running the microwave, the desk lamp went out then came back on when the microwave finished (weird).
-- the rod was missing that raises the stopper in the bathroom sink; to get the water to drain, I had to pry the stopper out with a pen knife.
-- the television remote did not work; but to the staff's credit it was promptly replaced.
-- silverware from room service stayed on the floor near the door for 5 days, and was still there when we checked out.
-- the "heat lamp" in the bathroom consisted of a bare CFL light bulb, which put out no heat and looked like it belonged in a garage, hanging from the ceiling.
-- local phone calls, which should be free, cost 75 cents.
-- there was no sign of the carpet having been vacuumed during our entire stay.
Not to be totally negative, there were some positives:
-- nice, comfortable bed
-- nice television, after we got a working remote
-- very good refrigerator in room
-- excellent breakfast buffet in the cafe.
-- hot food available until midnight (but don't order the crabcake sandwich -- it was served cold)
-- very good room heater/air conditioner.
-- both wired and wireless Internet connections.
-- very nice front desk staff; outstanding hostess in the cafe.
-- good ice machine, soda machine, and (pay) washers and dryers on every floor.
-- ample parking.
-- painless, efficient checkout.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rubygirl good bargain for the area
Average hotel in a great location. What gives it my 4stars is how friendly and welcoming the staff is. The clerk gets out from behind the desk and shows you where the elevators are and where breakfast is served. Speedy check in and for the activities going on (wedding) it was very quiet. O'Mally's pub is a great place eat. Good food and service and not high prices.
