Each year we're staying at HIE at Emporia, going down to Myrtle Beach, and coming back to Québec. As a Priority Club Members, everywhere we're travelling we're choosing a HIE. Friendly brand :o)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BabsMNJ Great Place to spend the night.
We frequently travel the I-95 corridor. We always stay at the Emporia Holiday Inn Express. The staff remembers us from year to year. They are always friendly and helpful and we feel like we are at "home" when we arrive. Their breakfast choices can accommodate anyone and if there is ever a problem, someone is there immediately to address it. There is rarely a complaint when we stay here.All in all, a great place to spend the night on our long journey along I-95. There is a great place to eat in town called Wilson's BBQ about a five minute drive #769 Main Street# - we sometimes look forward to our overnight stay in Emporia more than to our destination because of the great food at Wilson's and the welcome we receive at HIE.

We has stayed at this hotel before and the stay was quite nice. However, during our recent stay at the Holiday Inn, we noticed that the quality of service has gone down. There weren't adequate towels or wash cloths for our family. When I called the front desk and stated that we need more towels and wash cloths, the person indicated that they did not have any available. She did not try to see if there were any fresh towels/wash cloths in the laundry room. She did not give a time frame of when there would be any available. My husband had to go to Walmart to purchase those items.
When we come back to Emporia, we will choose another hotel to patronize, as we were highly disappointed and dissatisfied. The room was definitely not worth the money we paid!!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by john439 Nice Hotel, Great Service
My wife and I stayed here on our way to Florida. The room was large and clean and the bed was comfortable. The AC worked great - we had to turn it down a notch as it was really cool in the room. Breakfast was the usual fare, although the hot cinnamon buns were a treat.
The staff appeared to be well trained as service was excellent. When returning from Florida, we again stayed here. I think that speaks volumes.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Alia Would not recommend
The check in went smoothly. The breakfast was the best thing about our stay because of the kind and gracious dining room attendant. But I can't recommend the holiday inn express in Emporia because of a competent dining room attendant.
There were not enough towels for the four of us. The room was freezing when we arrived, which was not inviting at all. The shower nozzle was cheap and lime encrusted. The water pressure was weak, unless you adjusted the spray to the diameter of a quarter. Upon leaving the next morning, there was no one to be found at the reception desk or office. All of this could be overlooked, but the fact that the beds were as hard as rock, not one of us had a good night's rest. We would not stay at a Holiday Inn Express again.

From check in through check out the service was excellent. The room was to be as expected...clean and properly fitted out. The breakfast service was also excellent, with probably the most caring and attentive lady running the dining area I have encountered in my stays at HIE. Likewise the young lady at the reception desk. Well done. Thank you. Highly recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mojo589 Nice for a quick stay
We stayed one night in this hotel on the way to vacation in NC. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We rented two rooms, both were clean and comfortable. The hotel provided free parking, breakfast, and internet access, and was very easy to access off I-95 South. One room was perfect, however the second room had a problem with the internet access, a phone that didn't work, and an entry door that didn't close properly. When notified, the hotel immediately attempted to fix the internet/phone issue, and when they weren't able to, they offered a change of rooms. Other than that issue, the hotel was great for a short stay. We would stay here again.

We have stayed here several times in the past, and enjoyed the fact that you had 2 computers available in a private setting.
This time I found the computers too slow, and most often not able to make connections. It's time to get new ones!

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Express Emporia on our drive from New York to South Carolina. The rooms were perfect to relax in and get a few hours of sleep before getting back on the road. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

This is our favorite Holiday Inn Express so far. It is brand new and we loved it. It was our first stay and the staff even upgraded us to a suite room. Thank you staff.

Emporia, VA is a great location for an overnight pit stop heading to the NC beaches. The Holiday Inn Express is a clean hotel with friendly staff. The beds are comfortable as well. Can't ask for much more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boppy61 Again, a very pleasant stay in this hotel
An enjoyable stay in this hotel, which continues to be upgraded and well maintained. I was, however, shocked to find that the tax charged on the room was 15%. This is simply price-gouging by the locality and out of line with tax rates in many other, similar areas.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Henryfromcharleston Stinky Room
We arrived quite late at night so maybe we didn't get the most desirable room. The room smelled like dirty socks when we got there. I left the AC on all night and by the morning the smell was gone. Never experienced that in this location before. If it happens again I'll be staying elsewhere.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 90gator Very disappointed.
Air conditioner did not work properly, toilet and sink clogged upon arrival in room. At no fault of the hotel, there was a power outage during our stay. The front desk clerk was on her own to manage guests and recover wireless service. The hotel manager did not arrive on site until 90 minutes after power was restored. Hotel staff were heard cursing by my child, not appropriate. I was extremely disappointed. We received our room for half price. After check-out, I called corporate to log our complaint. The woman I spoke with was empathic and understanding.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JRose Disappointed
We had been traveling for 13 days and when we needed a hotel we stayed exclusively at HIE. I was expecting the same level of comfort and service here that I received at all the others.
While the lobby and room were both clean, and the staff were courteous we had several issues.
Our room door did not close properly, the fan in the bathroom did not work, the wifi signal was not strong enough to get any reception, the pool had several dead spiders and centipedes in it, and the hot tub was not working. (I also noticed that the dryer was not working in the guest laundry room)
Every other Holiday Inn Express we've stayed at has a 'pantry' for guests to purchase food items and I was very disappointed that this one did not. After a long day on the road the last thing I wanted to do was go out again to a restaurant.
But the topping on the cake was when the fire alarm was set off at 6:30 am, jarring us and our terrified children out of bed and downstairs only to discover that the cook had burned something setting it off.
In short, it was not a pleasant stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DomesticDiva666 Excellent Accomodations!
As a long term veteran of the hospitality industry, I have stayed in many 4 and 5 star hotels. I can honestly say the decor and comfort of this property truly rivals most hotel brands. The staff was very inviting and helpful. I truly was quite surprised how nice the decor was at a Holiday Inn Express. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others staying in the Emporia, VA area and would definitely stay here again.
Keep up the good work!

I made reservations for 5 rooms the 4th of July weekend. The rooms were clean, nice, the beds were comfortable. The housekeepers were very friendly and helpful. I will be staying here again and the rest of my family. I will be making reservations for next year early.

Upon arrival in late afternoon there was a trash can at the front door that was over flowing onto the ground. I inquired at the front desk if I could get a military discount. The desk clerk said I could not because my reservation had been made with a different discount and she could not change it. I have had other HIE hotels make the change. We were assigned a room and when we went to the room it was not ready. No towels, not swept or vacuumed. We had to contact the cleaning team so they could finish cleaning the room. The whirlpool at the pool was broken and the guest dryer was not operational.
