Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by VolleyballMom2013 uncomfortable bed and linens
The pillows are small squares, the beds were very hard, and the bedding itchy. The drains in the bathroom were very slow with the tub filling with water to your ankle after only about 3 minutes in the shower. The lighting in the bathroom was neon and with only 2 light fixtures in the bathroom, the one neon light was not working consistently. We did call and a repairman came up quickly but after we turned it off for a few hours, it never came back on again. There was a horrible metallic noise periodically every hour that I could not trace. The breakfast did not begin until 7 a.m. and we had to be at our venue by 7:15 so even though breakfast was included in our room rate, we weren't able to enjoy. The front desk really had no response other thant 'Breakfast is served at 7 on the weekends'.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TRXJESSE NO REST THANKS TO PARTY ON 3RD FLOOR
DROVE 6 HRS TO VA FOR CONTINUEING ED CLASS NEXT DAY WITH MY EMPLOYEES. MOST IMPORTANT TO US WAS GETTING A GOOD NIGHT REST. THE "PARTY" STARTED AT 10PM ON OUR FLOOR. SLAMMING DOORS, YELLING, CUSSING, PLAYING FOOTBALL IN THE HALLWAY CONTINUED TILL 3A.M. UPON COMPLAINT AT FRONT DESK ALL I RECIEVED WAS A SHRUG, AN ACKNOWLEGMENT OF THE DRUNKEN LOUDNESS AND THE STATEMENT THEY NEEDED TO FURTHER INVESTIGATE!

Bathroom had not been cleaned upon checking in, wallpaper peeling off walls, water marks running down walls, tub didn't drain well. toilet did not work well, room was not even cleaned the second day we were there. Emailed manager with our concern, he never responded!!!

I have stayed at west end before so I felt comfortable going back. Front desk was very good friendly and helpful. Now for the complaints, bar, restaurant needs to be refurbished very dated not clean looking, bar staff was terrible. Not friendly except to people she knew and overcharged me. When your alone you need a friendly face.
One other comment this is for all of the Holiday Inns. I understand comfort pillows and they are fine, but...do they have to be a size of a throw pillow? It doesn't even look good

NO HOT WATER. I was told there was a soccer tournament so I guess that was my fault i would assume I could get a shower in the hotel
NO MAID SERVICE FOR TWO DAYS. I was told three people called out sick so I guess that my my fault.
ASK TO TALK TO MANAGER. I was told no manager was on duty for the weekend. Clerk had no authority to address any concerns.
GROSS. Clerk was smoking in the lobby in front of a soccer team of 11 year old girls.
ABSOLUTELY DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS. HOTEL SHOULD BE RATED 1/2 STAR.
BEST BET IS TO LOOK FOR A REPUTABLE HOTEL IN THE AREA, NOT THIS DISGUSTING PILE OF GARBAGE

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC13 Great location & amenities
We were on the way from TN to DC, and took the train from Richmond to DC. Location was great, and hotel provided transportation to Amtrac station nearby, and we left our car at the Holiday Inn until we picked it up on our return trip. Hotel was very hospitable and provided all the necessary services and the staff was most cooperative.

The room was ok, but the staff at the restaurant was horrible. I took my son there and we had to wait forever to get service. On several occasions I had to get up and call over the waitress, who was at the bar hanging our with a bunch of guys. I will not be staying at the hotel again.

I stay here every time we are in Richond, usually 10-15 times a year, sometimes more. We have been disappoint only once out of the 10 years we been coming here and the manager went out his way to make things right, in fact better, they have the friendliest staff ever. I promise you will love it.

Staff was okay and common areas were okay.
My room had a loose commode and a loose sink faucet. The shower water handle was way too stiff, and the hot water took way too long to get to the room.
Two of the lamps did not work in my room (light bulb?).
When I first walked in, my tv did not work. Loose power cord was found after investigation.

We've stayed here three times in the last few months and have always been 100% pleased with the friendly staff, clean rooms, and proximity to the Fan. There's plenty of free parking, and the price is right.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mickey7 Steady decline
I have stayed at this location many times over the years and unfortunately it seems to be on a downward spiral the past few years. The only positive is that they upgraded me to a suite (Priority Platinum) without me asking. However, the room was awful. Grout in the bathroom tile and caulk around the shower were either chipping, mildewed or missing. The heating unit was SO loud you could not leave it on and sleep. (this was w/o Jan 21 when temps were in teens). I had asked for maintenance to check it when I went out for the evening and when I returned it was the same. The TV in the bedroom was an absolute dinosaur, with a terrible picture.
I honestly hate writing a review like this, but my stay was so disappointing I just could not let it go....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMT804 Customer Service To The Max!
We stayed for two days on a romantic getaway. The staff member on duty went above and beyond to make our stay the very best. Not only did he offer us a better room when we arrived, he supplied us with coupons for free deluxe continental breakfasts for the entirety of our stay. In addition, he signed us up for the Priority Club (a free service) so that our stay would immediately accumulate points and would serve as an incentive to come back again. When we experienced trouble with our TV, he offered to immediately move us to another room. Turns out we didn't need to move, but it was good to know that staff was willing to make adjustments to make us happy. The only downside was the loud cleaning crew. However, when we called the front desk, the manager rectified the situation immediately. Can't ask for anything more. We will definitely stay at Holiday Inn West End again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Orca2012 Poor room conditions & did not even bother to clean room one day
I stayed at this hotel because we were using their meeting room for 2 days. I stayed 3 nights. When I checked in the in room refrigerator was not working. I reported it to the desk clerk in person. It still had not been even looked at when I checked out. On Tuesday the room had not been cleaned. I reported it to the desk clerk & was told it was too late (3:30PM) to do any thing a the housekeeping staff had already left for the day. I had to request clean towels. The telivisin quit working. It was either repaired or replaced that evening. I will not be staying at this hotel in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dannyandalana Nice Hotel with Convenient Location
I stayed here while conducting business in the Richmond area. So the main thing I am looking for is a comfortable and quiet room that is close to local restaurants.
This hotel met all three of my needs.
Several reviews complained about cleanliness and room decor, but I found no problems with either.
The Deluxe Breakfast buffet was filling. The food was average, but can't really complain since it was comped for Priority Club.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by melT Needs a refurb
Staff was very helpful and friendly but the hotel is in need of a cleaning and update.
I picked a bad time also. There was a poker tournament and that meant using the door to the parking lot included a wall of smoke during breaks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RBH7 Worst Stay at a holiday inn ever!!!
Room run down and falling apart. They just did quick fixes while I was staying there rather then switching me to a better room.
Big convention staying there and since I wasn't part of it the staff was rude and could care less about my being there or needs.
They blocked off all of the eating area for convention people and left no room for the regular guest to have breakfast.
Housekeeping was working in hallways vacuuming at midnight. I called the front desk to complain and they said they didn't know anyone was staying in my room. This was after being there for a week already. Don't even know where their guests are.
Laundry room was so filthy my clothes would have left dirtier then going in.
Water was turned off to the building and no one told anyone about it and could not tell me when it would be back on.
Never return again!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tuttman52 Good host hotel for marathon but...
as a host hotel for a marathon event, I thought it was superb. However, for me to have a good marathon experience I need my wife to be able to stay and relax and enjoy good room service. I am sorry to say that the room service was poor and a major disappointment. My wife's order got lost and still took a long time after she followed up on it. When the order finally came, the quality of it was not good at all. I would recommend the hotel but the room service needs to be much better before we would come back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAD640 Richmond Marathon Weekend
I booked this hotel because it was advertised on the Richmond Marathon website as providing a shuttle to/from the race and I am so glad I did! I was skeptical at first because I had a hard time making reservations months before the actual day of the race. The person I talked with on the phone was clueless about the marathon package and the reserved block of rooms with the race shuttle. The day before the race, I first attempted to check into the hotel after visiting the expo. I was tired and just wanted to relax. However, my room was not available and this was after 4:30pm. The hotel desk clerks were nice though and tried to accommodate everyone as soon as rooms were available. So, after waiting in the lobby for about an hour, I decided to go to dinner and then try again. My second attempt was successful. I was able to check-in and then I was able to relax. My room was clean and and the bed was comfortable. The next morning, I went downstairs to catch the 6:30am shuttle. I heard they provided continuous shuttles between 6-7am. The shuttle arrived on time and whisked all of us runners to the race. The shuttle dropped us off very close to the start line which was really convenient. When the race was over, the hotel provided a table set-up with fruit and chairs to sit in at the pick-up location! How wonderful! The shuttle to and from the race was definitely worth it!

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the Richmond Marathon. Given the hotel is an express, I wasn't expecting much; however, I was pleasantly surprised! Each runner was provided with a door hanger so other guests would know to be quiet and we were all allowed late departure times, which was really appreciated - I didn't even have to ask! The hotel set up shuttles to the race and also from the race. For the return shuttle, there was a station set-up with chairs, fruit, and water and powerades. Everyone at the hotel was very hospitable and answered all questions. The hotel food was also better than expected and not overly expensive! My only complaint is I had been told there would be a shuttle to the train station, which was not running that day. The hotel did call for a cab though.
I'd recommend this hotel if you have access to a car and/or don't need to be in downtown Richmond!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by roediger316 Low End in the West End
This hotel property feels very dated once you go up to guest floors, whose hallways seem to have a stale and sour smell. The room also felt pretty dated, with a smallish bathroom and a sink that did not drain properly. The bedding was pretty decent, and on my visit, the WiFi was mostly steady (but it dropped connection from time to time and you had to log back on several times). The staff were all really, really nice, but the location was the only thing this hotel had going for it. It's pretty low end for most of the Holiday Inns I stay at, and was considerably below what I've come to expect when I stay at Holiday Inn Express. The outside areas feel industrial and a bit unsafe. This is not a bright spot in the Holiday Inn universe.
