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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ladibug Commend One of Your Staff Members
All the staff were pleasant, but I especially appreciated the help received from one of your regristration desk staff. I am embarrassed I don't have the young man's name, but he was on duty when I checked in the hotel on 11/25/12 about 11:00 a.m. so you will be able to identify him. I was attending a retreat with Peggy's Sewing Group. There were no carts available at the time to retrieve things from my car. The young man promptly offered to carry my sewing machine and supplies to the "sewing room."
On the second day I asked the woman clerk on duty around 8:00 a.m. if I could have a refrigerator and microwave sent to my room and was told she didn't think any were available, but would let me know. In the afternoon, I had not heard anything from the morning clerk the same afternoon so I called the registration desk and talked to the same young man who was so kind to me on Day 1. Within 15 minutes I had the unit brought to my room.
He certainly made my stay very pleasant.
I am planning to return in October 2013 for another sewing retreat.
Hopefully, someone will let him know his kindness was appreciated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jkline99 Great location and views
This was our 3rd time to the hotel and as a Platinum member I travel mostly for business so this is always a nice get away for me. The location is what always brings us back. During our first visit the front desk manager Mickey recommended the restaurant Harris and that is one of the reasons we return. Amazing crabs, view of the water and in walking distance to the hotel! Next to Harris I recommend you stop by Red Eyes for happy hour first.
The hotel location is the best. But the view you will have from your room, be sure to ask for water side is beautiful. Rooms come with a fridge and are clean. The only con is that there is not an onsite lounge/restaurant or a health club, but this is not a hotel for a long term stay. I highly recommend after you have your free breakfast, grab a cup of coffee and sit at the pier. The perfect place to chill, regroup and a great value. We can't wait to go back already next month!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LisafromNJ Comfortable bed, clean rooms, good value
Overall, this is a decent hotel, especially for the price. My only complaint is that the rooms are very poorly soundproofed, and I could hear an argument next door at about 1 am ... and every time the doors closed, they SLAMMED.
