Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Savetheocean Room Very Good but breakfast insane
The comfort of the room was fine, the bathroom amenities were ok but I would prefer soaps without a strong perfume for something more bland.
Breakfast on Saturday morning was over-crowded but mostly well stocked - but there were so many families with children that we could not get a table for two to eat breakfast at first. The two garbage cans in the breakfast area were both overflowing for 45 minutes and we didn't see any action to deal with the situation in spite of staff standing around and talking to each other.
The hotel has the potential to be great, but the breakfast chaos really marred the overall experience.
Did not use the fitness room but it seemed extraordinarily small for the size of the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DK58 Another Nice Holiday Inn Express
Nice clean room, comfortable bed with lots of good pillows. The breakfast was very good, loved the sweet rolls! Only draw back was with a pet left in a room that was barking in early am. the staff did take care of the problem, but that's something that you have to control when you bring your pet not the Hotel. It's nice to be able to bring your pet but keep the other guest in mind about the noise they can make unattended. All in all enjoyed our stay and would stay again and recommend the Holiday Inn Express!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tessie8 Best hotel I've ever stayed in!
Everything was perfect about this hotel! The bed was so comfortable that I'm still thinking about it. The amenities were ideal: the tub, the pillows and blankets, the tv, the table and chairs, the toiletries - everything. The staff were all nice - night and day shift front desk, the guy cleaning the floor, and the housekeeper. Just the best hotel stay I could have designed myself was all at this Exmore Holiday Inn Express. Couldn't have asked for more!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DuckyGeorge Clean and neat, comfortable accomodations
Our room was well appointed and clean, plenty of pillows on the beds and comfy. Bath took some getting used to, as it had been freshly cleaned with some tile cleaner that left it a bit slippery. Not dangerous. Tub shower was the same way, solved by putting a hand towel in bath tub. Satellite TV remote was slow to respond but we think that is the satellite system not the TV or remote. Took a bit to get used to but was OK. Drinking cups should be left in the bathroom.
Breakfast choices were excellent, fresh, hot and tasty. Area was kept stocked by an employee.
We thought it was somewhat overpriced, with the same room on other days going for quite a bit less. We stayed at this hotel because of the Holiday Inn Express name and were not disappointed.

Stay at a HIE rather than any other hotel/motel. Have 9 out of 10 times experience is great, however this time they need to do something about their mattress. Never have had a bed this uncomfortable. It felt like I was sleeping on an old fashion mattress and box spring. Please update you beds.

We were on the first floor and in the morning a roach was in the dogs dish. There had been a few days of rain and that it was raining which I know brings them inside. Not pleasant but not a huge deal either. Otherwise very clean room and overall excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cat13 Great service and amenities
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The washer and dryer were not working correctly and the front desk personnel spent time to correct the problem. A bonus in the pool area were the pool toys provided. This small thing made it very easy for my children to play in the pool while I relaxed and watched them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Foxie Overall experience.
My sister and I reserved a room while attending a family reunion
on the Eastern Shore. Enjoyed the room and the beds (slept
like a lamb) were very comfortable.
We especially enjoyed the breakfast and the variety of items
offered, e.g., the hot foods and the pancakes (delicious).
Overall, it was an enjoyable and clean place to stay and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
Would recommend to others and also return again. Thanks.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jam5 Dirty and poorly maintained
Nice comfortable room, Be aware that it is possible that pets have stayed previously in the room and first room we were given clearly had a dog in it, the smell was there but masked by disinfectant spray(we are allergic to dogs), Our room was changed without incident.
Common spaces are dirty and lobby uninviting. Did not feel comfortable sitting in chairs due to dirt. Likewise, rugs in elevators filthy, tile floor on 3rd floor showed signs of a very old spill-don't think they know what a mop is.
Pool dirty and cold. Washer and dryer both didn't work, only caring staff was Kelvin who was able to get the washer/dryer going with a key. Kelvin should get a star for trying to help the guests feel comfortable, also found a dirty q-tip on floor in our room.
Breakfast was ok, pancake machine was broken so no pancakes.
Too bad management takes so little pride in this hotel-will never stay at a Holiday Inn express again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnM430 Always consistent!
Clean, comfy, good location and consistent! Nice to know what you are getting before you get there. I first stayed here just after they opened and they were still working on stuff but invited me to park my motorcycle under the awning ( rain storm going)! They won me over on that one! So again I am in a rain storm 6 years later and they tell me to park my MC under the awning but don't block the walkways from the parking lot. Very reasonable request!! Nice folks and breakfast was great!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bearily Saturday summer on the Eastern Shore. Probably just bad timing.
Front desk Kelvin was sharp, attentive and friendly. We had requested an early check-in with him by phone the day before and he was ready to check us in. We arrived well after three but thanked him for his attention to our request.
Got very little rest. Mostly from rowdy adults and slamming doors all night and screaming unruly kids in the hall all morning.
No. We didn't call the front desk. Just too tired. Tis the season I guess.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Reid65 Needs Management
Clean Hotel. Staff needs to be better informed as to what IHG Offers. Internet was hit or miss for the 2 days I stayed. TV reception was less than adequate with the signal being interrupted MANY times.
Reception Staff was experiencing one of those "hit or miss" internet times when I was checking out and unable to provide me with a copy of my bill [required for my job], I took the lady's word when she told me she would email me a copy when she was able. 2 days and still no bill...
Called the hotel and spoke with a lady who could barely understand, not much less speak english and had no idea about reward points or much of anything else.
Sad to say but if I stay in Exmore again it will probably be at a competitor's place

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by headyby Great experience!
From check-in to check-out, we had a great experience. We found the usual high quality room and facilities, as well as overall cleanliness. Since this was my first time at this hotel, I had a few questions.
I asked whether we could have a refrigerator in our room; within 15 minutes, Dreita found one for us. I asked about local restaurants; Dreita gave us great advice (seconded by the young woman working with her), and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals at The Great Machipongo Clam Shack and the Exmore Diner (plus leftovers, thanks to the fridge). When I called the Front Desk from the pool with a question, Dreita was there yet again to provide assistance.
This is what I expect from Holiday Inn - quality facilities, value for the money, and excellent assistance from the staff. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

On our way back from the Outer Banks we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. While the room was very clean and new, the noise in the hotel was horrendous. By 6 am we heard jumping from the floor above, people running through the hallways, and doors slamming. It seems to me that very cheap material must have been used to build the hotel. I've never experienced anything like this before. On a positive note, the staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very good for a complimentary breakfast. However, I don't know if I'd stay again because of all the noise.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Herbert555 Room, bed, service, all good. Breakfast poor.
Room and bed comfortable. They added a small refrigerator upon request. But the vaunted breakfast was disappointing. Food cold and unappealing. Too greasy. Left our table for a minute --- cup of coffee and newspaper (free),there.Returned, coffee gone and a dish rag left on table.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Travel2 Dump Direct TV
TV service with Direct TV is the worst. Hard to change channels, long delays in switching channels. Doesn't always change to the right channel. Cable is available to the Hotel but owner doesn't want to spend a little extra for the service. I am in the cable business and you could lose my business with poor TV service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stratbone Great Service and Good Overall Experience
Check in was quick and painless. Staff and Service were attentive and knowledgeable. Room was clean and comfortable although I'm used to having a microwave/fridge available when I stay at a Holiday Inn. I must say that the complimentary breakfast definitely made up for that inconvenience. The breakfast was varied, fresh, and very good. When I return to this area, I will more than likely book this hotel again.

Overall, average when compared to other Holiday Inn Express's that I've stayed in. Staff was courteous and friendly, and made every effort to assist us during our overnight stay. The pool and exercise area was well maintained, and breakfast was fine. The bed needs to be replaced, or maybe it was just an inexpensive mattress. The furniture and carpets looked worn.

Stayed on our way through. Front desk person was great, even with it being late at night. She was there the next morning when we left and still chipper and pleasant.
Room and bathroom quite pleasant with all that we needed. We would recommend for a stay and would use again if necessary.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wyocamper Everything done right!
Returning from a trip down south, we stayed here with our dog for one night. Everything about this hotel and its staff was excellent. Check-in was smooth and fast. The manager was very friendly, and we were recognized as Priority Club members. The lobby and hallways were clean and welcoming. The king room we had was very spacious, neatly laid out, immaculate and all of our needs were met for toiletries and even choices of pillow firmness. The bed was very comfortable, and the hotel was extremely quiet so that our sleep was undisturbed. Breakfast the next morning was also excellent. The breakfast area was clean and well-tended. There were choices of tables and chairs or couches in front of a large fireplace with. TV for seating. The items for breakfast were varied, so that they would meet anyone's preferences for their breakfast. Some of the items were biscuits and sausage gravy, eggs, bacon, pancakes cooked to order by machine, yogurt, hot cinnamon buns, fresh fruit, hot and cold cereals, bagels, etc. Check-out was just as quick and smooth as check-in. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others or to return again.
