Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AlwaysTravlin Noisy Atrium Until Past 11 pm
My family stayed at this hotel during our last vacation. We were given a room that overlooked the atrium. At first we were pleased with the room, it was clean and comfortable. We went down to the pool but did not stay long as the water did not appear to be heated (freezing!!). Upon return to our room we settled in for the night until a rowdy group occupied the atrium at 8 pm. We waited until 10pm to see if the staff would do anything to quiet the people, which they did not. I went in person to the desk to ask if they could quiet the group in the atrium and was assured that it would be taken care of. Nothing happened. It took 4 more phone calls to the front desk and was not until nearly 11:30pm until the party packed up and went to their room and the hotel got quiet enough for my family to get to sleep. We were, needless to say, very unhappy with this experience and shocked to receive such shoddy service at a Holiday Inn.

We flew to BWI from Michigan to attend a service at Arlington National Cemetery. Having grown up in the Laurel area, I knew that staying outside of DC was a plus. Holiday Inn - Laurel West was a 45-minute drive to Arlington, and only a 30-minute drive to Annapolis. Tip: keep off I-95 south on Sunday evening

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by drsdandk Very clean, very quiet, good breakfast, not great service
We take a trip to this area every year for a conference and decided to try this hotel this year because of the bigger rooms and nicer pool than our usual Holiday Inn. The room was great - clean, big, nice beds. The breakfast was excellent, though service poor (no coffee either day and no interaction with waitstaff). The front desk staff was either made up of very shy people or ones who didn't really care to interact with customers - I'm not sure which. I was in and out several times per day and never got even a hello, which is not usual for Holiday Inns. Then, I waited so long to check out that I just gave up and left my keys on the counter.
My biggest issue was that the pool was closed. We paid about $30 more per night than we usually do in part because of the nicer pool. I feel that if the promised amenities are not actually available, the customer should get a discount of some sort.
Not sure if we'll stay there next year.

This was an absolutely beautiful place to stay. All but 1 of the staff members were so friendly and courteous. Great shopping nearby!! Would definitely stay here again.
The negative: the pool hours need to be longer and the lifeguard needs an attitude check.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Room quality and Service
My husband and I stayed in a room with a King sized bed. Very clean and comfortable. We started each day with their breakfast buffet and enjoyed wonderful dinners at the outback restaurant without having to leave outside the Hotel.
The swimming pool is delightful and my husband enjoyed his daily work outs in the gym. We were able to keep up with all regular business and emails on line with their free WI-FI. The staff provided great service and seemed to really enjoy their work. We look forward to coming back to the Holiday Inn in Laurel, MD.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by monk50 Not the best experience there at the hotel. Shower was great.
Not happy was unaware that the rooms did not have microwave or refrigerator upon checking in the room. I am a diabetic and I did not have a refrigerator to store my needles. There was guest in the hotel with little kids from Boy Scout troops. Those kids were running down the hall knocking on the other guests doors and running away. I was disturb several times by them doing that did not get any sleep that night I stayed there. This matter was enough for me not to stay again. Then wanted me to pay $10.00 extra for breakfast. Thought at least breakfast was included with the price you pay for those rooms. Unhappy Customer!!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LLG44 Bad Wi-Fi Connection and Pass on Breadfast (unless it's free)
Loved the room and the location to the highway. Loved that is was connected to the Outback. However, the wi-fi connection was horrible in my room. Tried it on an ipad and Kindle and it dropped every five seconds. Also, I was confused as to way the pool does not open up until 2:00pm. Some people like a early swim without kids. I guess it was the location of the pool? So, overall good. Just no internet or morning pool access. Also, stayed for free using my points so cant complain much! Agreed with other reviews DO NOT PAY FOR BREAKFAST! Our room was not ready and she gave us breakfast passes.Which was very nice. It was ok but no work $10.00.Oh another nice comment, they don't have a fridge in the room but if you ask they will bring one and it showed up fast! However, that forgot to clean out the past users food. Yup,tried to end on a nice note ;-)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by therid Tolerable is about all
These rooms were old, poorly maintained and crowded. The beds were not the comfort we expected & the cleanliness was not what I expected to find either. The staff had a tendency to be rude and would ignore customers. However, it was the place I was stuck so....
The price was too high for the lack of quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amy387 Good value with a twist
The room rate was certainly great, however it did not include breakfast. Our vacation plans changed and we were unable to get a refund of any amount for the unused night, which was a little disappointing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NJBizTraveller Great room & excellent value
I was recently there on business for 3 nights. I thought the room was great (large and clean) and the price was very reasonable, making my stay an excellent value.
The only letdown was that breakfast was not included in the price. A continental breakfast was $7 and "full" breakfast was $12. I had the continental breakfast the first morning. The selection for the continental breakfast was poor. I like to have fresh fruit, but there was none; not even a banana. After that I ate breakfast elsewhere.
If you come back to the hotel at the end of a long day, it's handy having an adjacent #and connected# Outback Restaurant. Although I don't care for Outback's institutional portion controlled food, it will do when you're tired.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChicoDusty35 Nice hotel
Hotel is very nice. Rooms are clean and well taken care of. (Except my room, 601 had a broken door handle)Breakfast in the morning is always tip top and the memory foam beds are the best I have slept on in a Holiday Inn. Hotel is connected to an Outback steakhouse which is nice because I didn't always need to drive to get dinner after a long work day. I always try to be nice to people, but their staff has a couple of rude desk clerks. The gentleman that checked me in was awesome. He was very funny and also dressed very nice. You could tell he enjoyed his job and was proud of it. A couple of the young ladies at the counter gave me a good amount of static over getting an extra room key, looking up a coworkers room number, and opening the "24 hour" fitness room for me at 11 am. Other than that I would recommend this hotel.

I currently live and work in the Middle East and have for 2 years. When I do return to the US on leave Laurel West HIE is my first stop. Quick, fast close to Dulles Airport its perfect. I have never been disappointed at this location and I hope that never changes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alien78 Surprise
I thought that all Holiday Inns Express offered a free breakfast or at least a free continental breakfast. I even paid for a coffee. I was under the impression that this was a staple feature at all Holiday Inns Express. My main attraction to this hotel was the availability of a smoking room plus the Outback restaurant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LN302 mixed feelings
no refrigerator in room
first day we were missing the tray to hold the coffee packet, when we went down to mention it at the desk, one lady kept saying the grounds are in a filter packet but the second one understood and the gentleman at the coffee counter gave us two coffees, the second morning we had no coffee cups
One lady at the front desk was very unfriendly and stand offish
One server in the cafe was extremely helpful and kind, we saw her both mornings and the afternoon of the cocktail hour for the CW wedding
we were disappointed that we couldn't swim in the morning or early afternoon

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by churchill overnight stay
The hotel had many groups of kids staying the night. The disturbance during the night was one thing, but the fire alarm being pulled at 7:45 in the morning is not a healthy way for a heart attack victim,such as myself, to start off his day. At least I am alive to fill out this eval.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tubby1960 My Choice for 10 Years...
... and the hospitality and service has never changed. From the first time I visited a decade ago, I've never had a bad stay.
Sure, you can say since I've been a long term customer I get superior service, but that's just my point; it's always been a great stay. From Natasha at check-in, to the ladies who serve me breakfast in the morning, the folks at the Holiday Inn Laurel can't do enough for ya.
I especially ike having an Outback attached to the property. A couple of beers under my belt and it's a short walk to bed.
It's a perfect location for me as I have business in Baltimore AND Washington. Easy to get to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsAvery Can't Beat The Value
I stayed here for a weekend with my fiancee. We had a great time!
For the price, in this area, it can't be beat.
HIGHLIGHTS: The beds are the absolute best (I wanted to take it home with me). Service at the Outback Steakhouse downstairs was fast and the food was delicious. Room service was prompt and professional. Staff was very polite and welcoming. The Wi-Fi was fast and easy to use (which was a GODSEND). The hotel was very quiet, and we were able to relax and meditate without disturbance.
NOT-SO HIGHLIGHTS: Prices for food at the cafe were pretty steep, and the TV channels aren't as stated on the guides they give you (which may not bother most people, but I have a pet peeve about stuff like that).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by emjay09 Wonderful staff!
I had a great experience here recently. Was greeted immediately and my room was ready wayyy prior to normal check in. I think it was around 1pm.
Was offered a bottle of water at check-in & check-out!! Front desk staff offered to help with luggage if I needed it.
Gave all information at check-in, including restaurant hours - hours of the restaurant next door, location of elevators, etc.
Would definitely stay again!
** Natacha was especially pleasant & helpful!
