Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BCap Hard to find and hot!
We arrived after it was dark driving in from the DC area. Our GPS was telling us that we were nearly there yet we couldn't see the hotel. It wasn't until we were within 100 yards of the driveway that we saw it. And it wasn't until we were at the registration door that I was convinced we were at the right place.
The temperature outside was just above freezing. When we got to our room the AC/Furnace was set for 70. The room felt like 90. We had to turn on the AC set the temp at 56 for 20 minutes in order to make the room comfortable. Even then we had to run the unit - set at 60 - to make sleep comfortable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by IfonlyIhadablanket not exactly great service
The hotel was unable to provide bedding for the king suite room I stayed in. It took 30 minutes to get 2 pillows, after I was initially told they did not have pillows for the pull out in my room. They we not able to provide a blanket for the pull out. I used the blanket on my bed for my 2 children and I slept with only a sheet. I made a complaint at checkout and never heard back from anyone.
The hotel is also very hard to find your way around. The staff actually commented on the fact by saying, "It is like a maze, good luck" I had to use the map every time I came and went from my room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EWeston Sneaking out on Wedding Night!
We chose this location due to proximity to Leesburg, and that might have been our issue. Bed was extremely rough, and those tiny blocks acting as pillows were too rough. After a long day we called it a night about 8:30pm and tried to get some sleep. Kept on waking up from noises that we thought were coming from the other rooms, but when I looked outside the window it was it was a bunch of children at 11:30pm playing in the parking lot and grass area outside the conference center area. Apparently it was an Indian celebration, and it seemed like the parents didn't worry about their children. It was that time we decided to just head home in Woodbridge to get some sleep. I never heard of anybody having to leave the hotel on their wedding night due to noise. This has to be the worse IHG property in the system, and will never stay that place again. Its worse that I wasted points on the room, just to be forced to leave to sleep.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Warthog68 Poor choice for Holiday Inn
This is one of the worst Holiday Inn properties I've every visited. I truly don't understand how Holiday Inn would chose this location as a representative.
Cold Coffee in the Lobby
Breakfast - Wouldn't even give it a try.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DCSecPro Inexpensive place to stay
In an area where room rates are through the roof, this property certainly helps control costs. It's an old building and there's just no getting around it. IHG has done everything they can to doctor it up, make it look modern, etc. but in the end, it's a very old property and it is showing its age. The layout is odd to say the least - going up and down stairs to move down one floor. The cable is standard digital, no movies or other things you see in modern hotels. There is wired and open wireless Internet.
The attached restaurant serves amazingly good Indian food. They also have American fare but let's face it, good Indian food is just hard to come by in the area.
Since the property is directly off Rt. 7, the main artery in the area, it is VERY accessible.

We booked the "Shop and Stay" package but at arrival at the hotel nobody knew about the benefits of this package.
Next morning there was an excellemt lady at the reception who knew that there was something and after some searching she was able to help us.
Without her, this review would be really bad!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PeachyA22 nice service can't cover up aging building
This is the type of Holiday Inn that gives Holiday Inns a bad name. We were in room 207 for a wedding. The tiles were loose in the bathroom floor and I saw small bugs crawling around on past guest's hair that had been wedged into the corners of the floor by the bathtub. I also saw an ant crawling around on the air conditioner. The hotel has new furniture, paint and draperies/wall paper, but the rest is in terrible condition. The corridors had the smell of old, unclean motel. Management should have known the restaurant would be busy - the hotel was sold out - but then they only staffed two people for breakfast, leading to an un-stocked buffet, dirty dishes everywhere, and people having to ask to pay their checks by walking into the kitchen. I sat in a booth and the wall of the booth was covered in dirt and food residue.
It should also be said that this hotel is not laid out well. There are stairs to all levels and no elevator. They do have a wheelchair lift, but it looked to be the type that is a hassle to use.
