Second stay @ this property. Do not want to stand and wait to check in while one employee informs the clerk about another employee's poor performance. Do not like having a mix-up over whether or not to re-locate me because the hotel did not realize it was a two night stay. I would have preferred to be moved to the candlewood.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by luckylwsw Warning. Remodeled on the outside, still old underneath. Service is Awful.
We stayed her on our long drive back from the beach as a half way point. Not a good neighborhood. This hotel has recently went through a remodel, but it still has the old window units to cool the room. Could not get comfy from a/c. Either real cold or real hot. The walls and floors were thin. I could hear people walking above us and talking in the rooms beside us. We arrived and the fold out sofa did not have any sheets and when I called the desk and asked for some. He said this is a Holiday Inn Express and we don't deliver to the rooms, you will have to come to the desk and get it. I am a Platinum Priority Member, so I have stayed at MANY IHG properties including Express and have NEVER been treated this way. This was by far the worst property I have ever stayed at. I was not recognized as a prioity club member either.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cfhnola Nice hotel in Alexandria
This is a very nice and apparently relatively new facility. Our suite was very large, with a comfortable chair and ottoman in the bedroom, which also included a very large TV. The living area was furnished with a sofa and coffee table and a 32 in TV. It also included a wet bar (i.e. a bar sink, refrigerator, microwave, plus cabinet space). All the furniture was high quality and contemporary styled.

You won't find a better place to stay in Alexandria. The service and staff are outstanding. It is one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in and the staff can't do enough to make your stay first rate!

Typical of the Quality rest stop, breakfast, Price, and staff that Holiday Inn EXPRESS has become known for. Good location to the Interstate and other places like restaurants and fuel.
HI Express is always the first Hotel that we look for,

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Amarillobytomorrow They didn't want our business
When we called on the road, the evening clerk was incredibly unhelpful. When we arrived, he maintained the attitude - when asked where dining was, just pointed down the road & said we'd find it. Didn't recognize Priority club members - just said take a water bottle if you want it. Down the road led us to an overwhelmed Applebee's. He did get up when we were experiencing problems with the TV, and came down to help.
Room had a refrigerator, which we stored some meds in. BUT someone had unplugged it - I noted that & plugged it in. Also, the clock radio had no power cord - Very weird.
HOWEVER, the room was very comfortable, the breakfast was the usual fine fare, and the morning staff were all friendly and managed our concerns.

I highly rate this location, the staff was exceedingly helpful, sincere, the rooms were fantastic. At the ned of a long, hard day you look for a little pampering and this location really knows how to treat a guest. This is my pick for Alexandria and surrounding towns.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by honestreviewer You don't get what you pay for
One of those hotels that goes the cheapest route possible. Thin walls, repairs are not kept up. 2nd floor door to stairs slams shut every time. Brought to the attention of maintenance but nothing is done. You can hear every footstep above because there is no sound proofing and yet they charge top dollar. At check-in there was a wait and the couple in front of me waited a long long time to get their room. Some gov't rate problem. I upgraded the overall experience to avg due to free evening drinks and the bed and pillows were clean plus nice TV. The next night in a neighboring town was much nicer and less money to boot.

Clean, beautiful decor greeted us that evening, as well as the friendly desk manager. Slept like babies, and awakened for early morning meeting. Breakfast was hot, tasty, and ready. The General Manager was on site, leading her outstanding team by example. I will return!

Rooms are some of the nicest in the Holiday Inn Express chain across the country. Staff is great all the way from the general manager to the cleaning staff.
I stay here about every other month and they do a good job at making you feel at home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shane777 Smooth / Comfortable 2 weeks
With the exception of the weather which was a bit chilly during my two week stay, I could not have been happier with the extraordinary hospitality and service I received. Two members of the staff exceeded my expectations more than once during my stay. Dodie at the front desk and Rolando in maintenance were constantly striving to make my stay as comfortable as possible. As I travel all over the USA 3 weeks out of every month, I could not have felt more welcome at a Hotel. Thank You Alexandria Holiday Inn Express. See you next time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GregoryS Terrible Customer Service
I have been a platinum member for about 6 years running and I don't normally get too excited about poor service and rude staff. I stayed at this location for about 19 days, just about every other night I had to go to the the front desk and ask them to keep the noise down, turn down the lobby TV, ask guess to keep quiet, The last night I stayed there, and I mean the last night I will ever stay there, I asked the front desk to keep some kids quiet, they were running up and down the hallway, having loud conversations outside of my door by the elevator, etc... Now I have kids of my own, so I get it, they are at a Hotel, and being teenagers, it is what it is. I called the front desk several times, and asked him to try to do something about this. Every time he responded with, "I'll get right on it" but he never did, and at 1:00 AM, when I was checking out, he stated "there is nothing I can do about it" By the way I did get charged for that night. So the next day while driving back home, I called to speak with the manager, she wasn't available, so the clerk on duty, asked the purpose of the call and after I gave the whole story, she took up for the night clerk, and told me she would pass on the message to the manager. Took my number and all. To this day, I haven't heard a word from anyone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mecheman Okay Value, Great Staff, Questionable Management, Aging Property
My family were on a road trip across the country staying in various IHG (mainly Holiday Inn Express) Hotels. While many were neutral to memorable for good reasons, this hotel stood out for many of the wrong reasons.
It began with our room being subpar, especially considering it was the most expensive of our trip. All of the appliances (clock, refrigerator, tv) were unplugged. When the fridge was plugged in, it made in incessant clicking noise. The a/c unit looked downright unhealthy and the toilet was not firmly attached to the floor. After talking with the person at the desk she moved us to a better room.
The next morning we talked with the person at the desk and he offered to reduce the price of the room to within the realm of the other hotels we stayed at. While this was appreciated we still wanted to make sure the manager knew about the problems.
When speaking with the manager, the overall impression was that our communication with her was an inconvenience and not very appreciated. After reminding her that Holiday Inn policy (printed on much of the information in the hotel) was satisfaction or the night is free - we were promptly informed that it was not the policy of that location. Sadly this is our worst interaction with any IHG personnel on the entire trip.
On the other hand all employees below the manager level were very nice and helpful - we even spoke with the maintenance person who made sure he fully understood the issues we had with the room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SueSueNLou Great service and nice rooms just don't expect a good breakfast experience
Our check in was quick and easy, the desk clerk was very friendly. We asked the desk clerk to suggest a restaurant and the place she suggested was awesome! This is really important to us as we were from out of town and really didn't know that much about the city we were visiting. She gets a gold star. The rooms were nice and comfortable. The only negative about the rooms was the noise from the people upstairs. The breakfast was cold and sparse compared to other Holiday Inn Express' we have been in; pancake maker wasn't working and there was no out of order sign on it so everyone kept trying to make it work; tables were way too small; felt like I was eating at a child's school cafeteria table. Overall it was a good experience and I would go back there, I would just go out for breakfast.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Janjar22 Hotel smell and food
Hotel had a terrible smell. Staff was spraying something in
halls to cover up or try to cover up smell. Maybe it is carpeting.
Breakfast eggs were overdone, leathery, food not up to par
with other Holiday Inn Express hotels. Dining tables were
inadequate, small, round that you had no where to put food, etc.Bathroom lighting totally inadequate and magnifying mirror
light does not help at all. You really need brighter lighting and
