Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 95
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Overall not bad, just average.
Front desk staff at afternoon check-in seemed more interested in goofing off and talking to their friends in housekeeping than working. The night shift however, was great, very professional.
We asked for extra pillows and towels online, received neither in the room. The aforementioned front desk - night shift was able to provide towels, but no pillows were available.
We had a king room, it was clean and newly renovated, but as another reviewer said, itty bitty! Bathroom the same, and the toilet paper is hidden behind the door. Weird.
Breakfast was okay, try the make your own pancake machine.
This is hardly a 5 star hotel, but if you want a clean place to sleep for a decent price, it's great.

This room was very nice but too small for 2 people. It would be fine for business needs travel when you are alone. Otherwise the staff and amenities were great.

Good stay for business, very clean and nice work out facility. My only knock is they only gave a free bottle of water for being a IHG Platinum level member.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SIScott Nice properrty, lots of outside noise
Rooms were what you'd expect from HI Express. Nice but nothing fancy. The main con is that this hotel is located next to a vet hospital. You will be woken up every morning by 10-20 barking dogs that are kenneled outside. Beds are great. Bathroom is set up oddly - difficult to get TP. Overall a good value stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MLD417 Small Room
When we arrived no one was at the front desk. After a few mins we made some noise to get attention. After that the check in went smoothly. - Our room was not spacious but adequate. The clock radio though not on had a static sound coming from it on and off throughout the night. In the morning upon check out we mentioned this to the employee at the front desk but he barely took notice of this. - Breakfast was the norm for a HI Express. What was not the norm was a little girl eating alone. She was an employees daughter. The employee did set her up before leaving but I am the one who got up and got her juice. I didn't mind but I did feel bad for her. She said she was going to work with her daddy when she finished eating. I commend HI Express for allowing her there but was uncomfortable with the idea she was eating with no adult around to keep her safe.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WaltS Room too small
The room was too small and there was no comfortable chair available to view the TV. I had to lift the computer chair over the bed and heater/AC unit to watch TV.
Only other choice was to watch TV sitting in bed, which I prefer NOT to do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TrudyB Great room
We were next to a busy highway and sirens going on. Once we were in our room, we heard nothing. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was very clean. The shower was the best part of the bathroom. Easy to use and wonderful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Martie99 Small but Comfy
We stayed in a king size room with a pull out couch. The room was quite cramped and small; however, it was clean and warm.
There hotel building is old, but well kept. Parking is good and the location is quite good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by matman1175 nice enough, good value
The hotel is nothing special to look at, but nice enough. The included breakfast was phenomenal -- better than what I paid $10 for at Bob Evans the day before, for sure!
Our room was nice, clean, and spacious for a moderately-priced hotel. I like the varying-firmness pillows. The climate control worked fine, but it put out a sort of nasty smell, especially when I first turned it on. The bathroom is a bit awkwardly small considering the size of the room, but not problematically so.
Only complaint, really, is that we had to wait about 5 minutes for anyone to be available to help us check in. No line or anything, there just was nobody at the desk or anywhere around. I guess that's not too terribly odd for 7pm on a Sunday?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Margeaux great bed - very clean
This was a great little hotel. Our room was nice, big enough and very clean. The beds were comfortable. We were on the street side so it was a bit noisy, but I would recommend the hotel - of course it's not a Four Seasons, but we were in town for a kids lacrosse tournament and the hotel was very nice. We were pleasantly surprised!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jakob345 Perfect Place for a one night stay
Upon entering the staff were kind and very helpful. Our room was very comfortable and spotless. The breakfast was not exactly the best but it was edible. I would definitely stay again and would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consultant2Govt Excellent choice for savvy travelers
I'm a consultant. I travel year-round. THIS Holiday Inn Express is top notch. Best in town (yes, I checked). I stay here 100% of the time I'm in Hunt Valley, MD - which is near weekly.
Safe lite parking
Convenient to restaurants (many with 10% discount for staying here)
NEW rooms, microwave, fridge, large shower (clean too!)
Fast free internet
It makes those old, "No, but I stayed at an Holiday Inn Express last night" commercials true.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoeandSue Need more vegan options at breakfast
Hotel rooms and service Excellent.
The only problem was breakfast. We try to be vegans but when we travel there were so few vegan options we usually eat eggs or pancakes. We tried the eggs and have to say they tasted petrochemical. We didn't eat the pancakes since we don't eat corn syrup and forgot our own syrup. Please include more mixed fruit even if it comes from a canned for bottled.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BELOWE Overall good place to stay in this area.
Everything easily met our standards. I have to say that the bathroom was a little on the small side But even that wasn't a problem because the main thing is it was very clean. Rates a 5 star with us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consultant2Govt The only place to stay in Hunt Valley
As a contractor I'm in town every week. I've seen them all. But now I have a standing reservation with this hotel for whenever I'm up there. New rooms, new carpet, new beds, new a/c and heat in each room, new TVs, Denny's-like breakfast buffett - like real food, to-go containers for lunch or snack... Really folks, great deal up there. Internet is fast, water's hot, gym is clean, and bed is comfy - it's really nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BmoreGirl55 Outstanding in every way
From the first contact with the front desk to the last day of my stay, the entire staff was awesome. They introduced themselves by name (always a good sign). They went out of their way to be accomodating and helpful. Maintenance to maid service they were excellent. For future visits, this is my top choice! Underground parking was nice to have in inclement weather.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ward1 great location
My stay was great. The rooms were clean and quite. While working in Baltimore this location was close to city but away from downtown. There was plenty of food options and shopping close by. Parking was not a problem and did not cost extra. I will be working in the Baltimore area again soon and I will use this hotel again. Over all I would rate this Holiday Inn Express one of the best I've used.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by msinaz They overbooked my room
I had a reservation for this hotel that was supposed to be prepaid and guaranteed. Because of my flight, I arrived late in the evening, and was told my room was given to someone else, and this hotel was completely booked. The clerk scrambled to find another hotel with a room available, to no avail. Just by chance, a couple came down and checked out early, saying they had to leave then, and I could use their room. I then waited half an hour until a housekeeper cleaned the room, then was allowed to use it. Although this couple had already paid for a night's stay in that room, I was charged a full night's stay for the same room. At checkout time, a manager reduced my charges for the first of 2 nights only by 50 percent, but this whole experience really soured me.
The bedroom is spacious, but the bathroom is too small, and the door almost hits the toilet when opened. There is a lot of bothersome traffic noise from York Road for rooms on the east side. (I had requested a room facing away from York Road, but as noted, that room was given to someone else).
I'd recommend avoiding this hotel, until they develop a completely foolproof reservation system. You may arrive to find your reserved room already occupied.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ih8idnos Parting impressions are important
On our last night we returned to our room around 9:00 PM exhausted from our activities. We ere shocked at the condition of our room. Housecleaning had not been in our room. The bed was unmade, the waste baskets had not been emptied and there were no clean towels. This is not what we expect at a Holiday Inn. We will choose a different Inn in our future trips. Holiday Ill is off our list.
One more thing . . . this form is awful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MHRJ comfortable bed but
the rest of the property looked tired - the lobby furniture - the breakfast presentation - the hallways - the underground parking - painting and a good cleaning would go a long way towards making this an above average hotel

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Queenb Good location and clean hotel
We have stayed at this hotel many times due to its location to work projects. It is clean and in a good location. The breakfast is adequate but lacks variety especially if you are staying numerous days or a week. The king room we had was extremely small but did have a microwave, refrigerator and large screen television. The bathroom was tiny and requires closing the door to reach the toilet paper. More staff is needed for check-in since the staff has to manage telephone, check-in, inquiries and complaints at the front desk and some repairs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Trigger8318 Front desk has no clue
Thg hotel and facilities were nice. Our room was well taken caren of. However, the front desk has no clue how to operate thg computers and the manager is never available and will not return phone calls. Our scheduled stay was for four nights. On the third day, I made the front desk aware that we would be checking out early and not need the fourth night. Upon doing so, they charged my card for the full four nights with out knowledge. When I did check out, it took almost thirty minutes to check out and the paperwork was never right. In addition to the full four night charge they are also trying to charge me almost seven hundred dollars for no known reason. I have repeatedly attempted to contact management but am always told "they were here, but have left, i will leave them a message." I checked out four days ago and this mess of overcharging, and double charging is still not straightened out. I will not be using this location again due to this problem.
