This Holiday Inn Express is starting to show its age. I have stayed here numerous times over the years and would stay here again if business brings me back to this location.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 139critter Bug issue
After checking in to any hotel, I always do a room inspection. I check the mattresses, look in drawers, turn the plumbing on and off, etc. While checking the drawers of the night stand I noticed what looked to be black specks of dirt. These however were moving. I immediately went back to the front desk and informed them. The young lady there was very hospitable. Apologized several times and did an inspection with me of the next room. The second room it seemed was bug free. The overall condition of the rooms however is screaming refurbishment. The seems at the ceiling/wall have separated so it looks as though the entire ceiling has a type of crown molding all the way around the room. Several small things like the refrigerator making a "dripping" noise all the time only really becomes noticeable and then annoying once its quiet in the room. That doesn't happen as much as you would like though because the walls and ceiling are too thin. Adjoining noises are very audible through out the room. The mirror which is mounted firmly in the bathroom has a feeble attempt of a frame sort of attached around it. It made me check it because it looks like its ready to just fall away from the wall. The only good things the hotel really has going for it is the staff and the breakfast. The staff are very friendly and obviously because of the check-in issue, very helpful with any questions. The food wasn't bad at all for free and there was a large variety of choices. Unfortunately, if I am ever back in the area I probably would not stay there again unless it was the only choice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JJDD2014 Noise noise noise...
Not only the walls and the ceiling are so thin which were the origin of all the noise I experienced, but the front desk staff could not manage to control it when I asked to call the guy next door to turn the TV down, and the person above me to walk smartly instead of stepping hard on the floor. The latter was weird, he was walking back and forth continuously all evening until 1130 and then restarted at 0500. He seemed in rush doing something, just could not explain his behaviour.
After the first call, the staff member lied to me when I called again about the guy next door, and said that there is nothing she can do because he was not answering the phone, actually she never did. I threatened her that I will be calling the police if the TV is not turned down. Then she asked me if she has to knock at his door, and said yes please do. That's when I heard the phone ringing and the guy finally turned the TV down.
Bottom line, I cannot recommend this hotel and of course I am no going back if I am in the area.

Floors were dirty and the room walls are too thin, allowing noise from adjacent rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve. T Definitely a good place to stay
Overall a great stay! Room was exceptionally clean and the staff very courteous and professional. Was impressed with how well maintained the breakfast area was during time of service, especially with keeping the bacon bin full. Was slightly disappointed with no recognition of my IHG member status and the incorrect TV channel listings in the room. There was 2 in the room and both wrong. (personal pet peeve of mine). Will definitely stay again though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by patricia D Excellent service; great room; great hot breakfast
We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Dahlgren a few times. The service, room quality and breakfast choices have always been great. This year, the only available room at the time I booked was a smoking room. When we checked in and mentioned this to the associate at the front desk, she called the cleaning staff and asked them to use the ionizer to clean the smoke from the room. We very much appreciated the effort the staff made to accommodate us. And upon check-out two days later, she remembered us and asked us how the room was! You don't get that kind of service everywhere! Thank you, Holiday Inn.
