Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathlyn44 Stepping Off Point for a Maryland Eastern Shore Adventure
This is a very good spot just east of the Chesapeake Bay bridge. Staff is friendly and room was comfortable. Ask for a water side and you will love waking up to the beautiful view. There are many fun things to do on the east side of the bridge. Take a break and visit. Book early as they are a very popular place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by themike There's no place like Kent Island!
Every year myself and a large group of people travel down to Stevensville, MD to celebrate PRS guitars. The Holiday Inn Express constantly makes it an enjoyable stay and goes above and beyond to accomdate a large group of loud musicians like ourselves. Combine that with the jaw dropping view from the back porch and you have an unbeatable experience. Its truly a pleasure and I am already counting down the days until next year. Thanks guys!

The back patio and pool area have a great view of the Chesapeake.
Only complaint I had was the door of the bathroom squeaked every time you opened or closed it. Disturbing the other guest in my room.
Very accommodating staff.

The staff is very pleasant. We find the stay very relaxing and a great break in our drive. Have stayed a few times now and will certainly stay again if the need arises.

The best part of our stay here was getting a cup of coffee in the morning and walking out the back door to see the beautiful view!
It was so peaceful and the view from the pool is nice as well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by christa5678 Overpriced and Uncomfortable
Upon arrival, we were greeted with an uncomfortable exchange between employees. The young woman helping us booked us our room, but another guest was checking in at the same time. The other woman on duty began berating her for giving away the last room on a non-smoking floor. Well, we didn't want to be on a smoking floor either - I'm pregnant! It was highly unprofessional in front of a line of guests, and it's not that big a deal - she didn't need to freak out.
Also, for what we were paying (exorbitant price, we had a hotel in downtown DC for cheaper), I would expect the AC to work. This is the second issue I have had with a Holiday Inn's AC not working. It was SO HOT in the 3rd floor hallway and our room. And we couldn't adjust it - seems like the AC is limited on how many times it can run per hour, which is extremely counter-productive. Super uncomfortable at night, so hot in the room AND on the entire floor. Another guest agreed with us - ridiculously warm. Not a good experience.

I love this hotel. It's close to some great restaurants and bars. It's far enough away from the interstate that it's very quiet. I'll be back!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MLD417 Beautiful Setting & Friendly Staff
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. They even opened the pool early for us one morning so our granddaughters could swim.
The breakfast room staff was very cheerful and kept things in order.
Upon entering our room on the first day the view was breath taking. We never wanted to close the curtains.
This hotel is in a fantastic location for views and dining out on the the water.
Loved our 3 nights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Champ123 Terrific Staff
The staff was outstanding. We were there for a fishing charter which meant we had to check out very early in the morning. The staff arranged to have a breakfast for us at 5AM. They gave us a special rate for my whole family since we were booking several rooms. They allowed my wife and I to lock up our bikes in a unused conference room and pick them up after the charter. Great job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Grab some popcorn
It seems like in the "ol days" (I'm a senior citizen# a lot of roadside motels had a popcorn machine in their lobby. Not anymore, unless, of course, you stay at the Kent Island Holiday Inn Express. I had a bag when I checked in, a bag later when I was enjoying a cocktail, and a bag again when I came in from dinner. No way could I say anything bad about a place that dished up three free bags of hot, free popcorn. I generally skip the "free" breakfat in most places because the dining area is dirty, the hot food is anything but, and the choices are from hunger. But not here. Make your own pancakes and pile 'em alongside your fresh eggs and hot pattie sausage. My wife complained that the joint didn't have any fresh fruit, but I countered with the fact the Inn offered different kinds of fruit juices. And there was always an apple baset sitting on the registration desk. The service was outstanding . . . the guy who checked me in pulled out two baskets of goodies and said "help yourself." He also handed me a bottle of water. The room was clean, comfortable, and everything that's supposed to work did. I didn't use the pool or the workout center #I said I was a senior citizen, didn't I?# and so can't comment on them. But the kids in the pool seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Although it is in an excellent location, I will not stay here again. This property definitely needs to be refurbished. The room was clean, however, the carpet appeared to be well worn and there were water stains on the popcorn ceiling. Queen beds were not very comfortable. Carpet in the hallway was also dirty. Overall it was Poor Value for condition of the rooms.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by penny01 over all bad stay
The whole place smelled like very strong "soap". The bed was horrible! The breakfast was acceptable-the standard. We paid extra for a water front view and got a grand view of the pool. This time of year the rate was even over priced-summer months it is not worth it by any means.

Westay at this hotel every year on our way from NH to NC to visit family for the holidays..it's clean,right off the highway & the staff is welcoming and helpful. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone traveling and because it's right on the water there are beautiful views in the morning.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Specialby2 Poor Experience
I would not recommend this hotel at all. My original room was dirty and had not been cleaned from the previous guest. Dirty towels and linens on the floor, overall discusting. My replacement room did not have a fridge and the house keepers consistantly turned the heat off every day even after I requested that the heat be left on so I wouldn't come back to a freezing room. The overnight gentleman working the front desk was rude and not helpful. He would literally ignore you and walk away from the counter as you approached. He would also be on the phone and would not acknowledge your presence.
Overall poor experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carlton enjoyed our stay!
I've stayed at the Holiday Inn Express - Kent Island a couple of time before, and have always enjoyed it. It's a nice location, the staff are friendly, and the views of the water are stunning.
For this most recent visit, I'd like to especially mention Ms. Merritt who works at the front desk. She was incredibly helpful, and able to provide suggestions and tips for things to do in the local area as only a "true local" can do. She gave us directions for the most scenic drive to the park for hiking, a tip to drive just past that park to find another one that also has good trails, and a full run-down of the restaurants that were within walking distance of the hotel and what they offered. When we checked out, a newer employee was figuring out how to print the bill, and Ms. Merritt was both patient with the employee and professional to the customers.
We look forward to visiting this hotel again next year!
