Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LORIETAL Convenient to I-81.
We make reservations by phone, requesting a non-smoking room. When we checked in, we were placed in a smoking room. Arriving after dark, it was hard to locate the driveway to the hotel. It would be helpful to add signage and/or a light.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sorry2013 We Were Not Happy
This was a stop on the way home from a Vacation North. We had seen the room and arrived late. When we checked the room, it had impressions on the beds - as though someone was watching the TV. We were said to hear the night manager tell us that the pillows were just thrown on the bed. We aren't stupid, but felt that the manager must have thought so. The Air conditioner did not work either. It only had a fan to blow the humid air around the room. We asked for another room for the three of us and we were told that only a single bed with a pull out sofa bed was left. The shower in this room had wall paper peeling off of the bathroom wall. This was a very disappointment and one of the saddest parts of our trip. We were glad that we weren't staying longer then to catch some sleep, or try to. I don't believe that I'll be back and should have gone down the road further. I hope these issues will be looked into and remedied, or others will say the same. We feel that we were robbed with this stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AverageTraveler Disappointed with a Past Favorite
We had stayed at this HIX previously and were much happier those times. Front desk and housekeeping staff were extremely pleasant, courteous and friendly - always making a point of saying hello. I think the staff is quite good but I do question the ability of management - is the correct overall guidance being given? is responsibility and decission making appropriately delegated? are the necessary tools/equipment being provided? The room was fine and we got a good night's rest. A storm came through and knocked out both TV and internet service for maybe 10 minutes or so - I believe the hotel uses a satellite dish for these services - don't think cable would have had the same problem. At checkin it was mentioned that the weekend had been very busy at the hotel - we checked in on a Sunday - so they were busy catching up. There was mention of a dryer being out of service therefor backing up towels and sheets needing drying. No mention was made of what we would experience the next morning at breakfast... many of their breakfast items were out-of-stock. The most disappointing of these was that there were no cinnamon rolls! This has been one of the main calling cards for HIX the past several years and something I always look forward to. Anyway, I'd have thought someone - hotel staff - would have run out to a Dunkin Donuts or supermarket to cover the missing breakfast options. The lady apparently running the breakfast area never came out of the "preparation room" - probably because she had put everything out that was left. Our reservation was an Advance Purchase one - supposedly our credit card was charged when the reservation was made - but the checkout receipt showed the card presented at checkin was charged. When asked about this I was told that's the way they do it at this hotel. I know others don't and that made me concerned as I couldn't remember if my card was charged 6 weeks earlier when I made the reservation. I checked my records first thing when I got home and found what I was told was true - I had not been previously charged. I do not understand why this HIX does things different from others.

I spent one night at this location while traveling for business & it was enjoyable. The staff was very friendly & welcoming, the rooms were clean & comfortable with fridge & microwave, and the pool area was pretty & relaxing. Nice, quiet place to stay, I plan on returning in the near future.

Our last visit to this establishment was unsatisfactory. The room had a toilet that did not flush properly and a sink which did not drain. We stay in this hotel frequently as we have family only 2 miles from the hotel. We were not offered any compensation after reporting to the desk clerk the problems.
If this occurs upon my next visit I will be looking for another hotel chain to stay with. Martinsburg has many to offer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by inspira Comfortable & quiet although...
All was good except for the fact that it was Spring with beautiful weather outside and there were no screens on the windows so I had to deal with bugs coming in - not too many luckily.
Breakfast was fast food, the kind that causes American's to have the highest death rates in the world for food related diseases. Lots of sugary breads, weird looking sausage, perfect little odd egg squares.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jjk618 Good choice
Traveling north on Route 81, we had hoped to reach Hagerstown Maryland before stopping for the night. Heavy truck traffic and delays due to construction prompted us to exit the highway and stay at Holiday Inn at Martinsburg-North. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast was fine. All in all this was a very good choice.

We have stayed at this hiexpress before, but was very disappointed this time, requested 1st floor on arrival told not
available , which was okay, ice machine broken, no cinnamon buns at breakfast, and the pancake machine was out of order. Very disappointed in the overall experience.

This hotel was not what I typically get from Holiday Inn Express.
Everything was average but a few things made our stay memorable. As we got to the breakfast area, which was small and in the lobby, the "Breakfast Lady" was clearing food right from under our plates. What about the customer???? I managed a cup of coffee and a sweet roll. I tried to work at the desk in our room, but the chair would only raise high enough to put me at shoulder level, and I am 6 feet tall!! The Ice machine was broken on the 2nd floor and had to go to the 3rd floor. The 3rd floor is the smokers floor and it smelled terrible, and that was in the hallway. Lastly, the pillows were very small (king size bed) and were lumpier than my moms gravy.
If this is your only choice, as it was mine, then go for it. Otherwise use the one at exit 16.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by stuntz Fax service
I have an expense reimbursement account and I have to fax my receipts to my office every Monday by 10am. I usually have no problem with the staff at Holiday Inns completely this task for me. I have never been charged a fee for doing the fax. Just for the record, I would not have a problem paying for this service. The clerk at this hotel charged my wife 10 dollars for the service but REFUSED to give her a receipt. He stated that they dont put that transaction in the system. I went down to the desk and asked for a receipt and he rolled his eyes at me and acted as if I was being unreasonable. After he went into the back to consult someone else, he came out and gave me a receipt. I stayed on Sunday April 7th.

OK as far as Holiday Inn(express)goes. Service at breakfast was very good, nice staff. Room was good, although everything was on the "cheaper" side(office chair, smaller tv, low bed, no "pillow choice").
Cleaning service starts early. We stayed on a Sat night, and they started cleaning rooms at 8am Sunday morning(we know this since the vacuming woke us up).

We make a point of staying here when we can, several times a year. There is really nothing to complain about, and if there were they would fix it. The pet friendly policy is a requirement. The friendly service and an excellent breakfast spread are bonuses.

We were traveling from Pennsylvania to Georgia and were very tired. We were greeted by a very nice young lady who was pleasant and very accommodating. They had a booking of students that evening so only had a smoking room available. To make up for that she gave us an extra big room, which was very nice and comfortable. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was more than adequate and well maintained. We would highly recommend this hotel.
