The hotel was new and modern. The staff people were pleasant and ultra helpful. The free breakfast was very appreciated, although the selections were somewhat ordinary.
In terms of staff helpfulness, I had to call CAA because my car was dead, but the front desk clerk was tied up interminably with a very needy customer in front of me. I was pacing and impatient because I was going to be late for my session, and on top of that, I had laryngitis and it was going to be extremely difficult for me to make the phone call. One of the managers in a nearby office across the reception area came over and asked if he could help, which he did, by calling CAA and giving them all the details for the tow truck. It was only later that I discovered that he was one of the managers in Housekeeping, thus, he helped me above and beyond his normal duties.

My family and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights so I am comfortable that my review is fair.
The hotel’s weakness is what several other reviews have also noted; the staff. We arrived late in the evening so we were the only ones in the lobby. I walked up and had my IHG membership and credit card ready, unbelievably the clerk offered no greeting, no light conversation while prepared our keys and noted our arrival. My wife and were dumbstruck that she could stand there and not talk to us. Finally a simple comment about the wi-fi and room were offered when she was finished. As I picked up my credit card and IHG card she finally asked what IHG offer I preferred. It was so bizarre it was almost funny.
The hotel has been remodeled and has an appearance you come to expect in the brand. Our room was clean and the housekeeping staff did a great job throughout our stay. The security staff was also very prompt in addressing concerns and helping keep noisy guests quiet at 2am.
I don’t believe in addressing the behavior of other guests in hotel reviews, other people’s rude behavior is not the fault of management. However, what the management needs to address the staff lack of attention to details. Examples, a 2-bed room should not be stocked with just two towel sets; our room lacked a complete set of complimentary bath items when we arrived; the sole luggage carrier has broken wheels; unfriendly front-desk staff and a non-functioning phone in our room are just a few examples.
The breakfast was run efficiently, always well stocked and ready for guests on-time with attentive staff members emptying the trash and refilling items as they ran out.

My stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Laurel,, MD was a pleasant one with the exception of no room service for food it was a relaxing experience. During my time at the pool the Life Guard was very attentive and made sure my needs where met being as though I have MS and walk with a cane. I want to commend his service. The staff was also excellent even to the point where one of the women that was cleaning my room after my stay noticed that my daughter had left her eyeglasses and found us and returned them to her even though we were in the car and about to leave that was going above and beyond excellence I also want to commend her. I was acknowledged with a smile and pleasant greeting checking both in and out. You have a wonderful staff at this location. Enjoyed my stay for the most part. Thank You.

Holiday Inn Executives,
Please have the young lady who was at the front desk the night I arrived train all your front desk staff across all your hotels.
She was the up most friendly front desk person I have meet in any hotel. And it all appear to be genuine, which I am sure it was.
Do not loose her. She is a great asset.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Richmonte Never again at this location
Never never never again. I stay 50-70 nights a year with IHG hotels. Issue 1: I check in go to "my" room there's a couple in the desk chair. Fun to see at 12:30 am after a 5 hour drive. I go back to front desk. No upgrade. New room leads to issue 2: hair on the toilet, dirty slept in sheets. Of course I notice after I unpack. I go back to front desk. Still no upgrade. Go to room #3 and issue #3 no air conditioner. Of course when I call the front desk he asks if I turned it on. Finally in room #4. It's 1am I have to be up at 6 the wifi doesn't work on the 5th floor, it worked on the 4th. And still no upgrade which platinum members should automatically get. I will never stay in this dump again. The rooms are also old and patched up looking. I checked the IHG site it is rated 4 stars. No idea who stays here and would rate 4 starts. Trust me, I'm no snob I've seen better roadside motels at half the price. Save the money and stay away from here.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SamAbq Nice enough room, front desk horror
The front desk staff were not smart enough when I checked in to actually get my reservation--they instead chose the first reservation with my last name which happened to by my nephew's reservation. My reservation was for two beds, two nights while his was for one bed, one night. After arriving at my room and seeing only one bed, I had to go back to the front desk to change it. My nephew was told he had no reservation at all when he tried to check in later that evening as the front desk had changed the name on his reservation to my name. Thought things were squared away but I received my receipt in the morning--meaning that the hotel now had me down for one night instead of two--had to give us new keys for the next day. Why the staff couldn't just look up my name correctly or use my confirmation number--which they cancelled when they changed my room--I don't know.
The room itself was pretty nice but had a number of small problems. The clock radio is an iPod dock which is fine if I wanted to listen to my own music. I preferred to use it as a clock and set an alarm to wake up--but you cannot set it unless you have a Phillips screwdriver and instructions from the internet. So I called the front desk to request a wake-up call instead--and the call never came.
The bathtub had no stopper so the member of my party that wanted to take a bath was out of luck. The flapper valve on the toilet did not seal properly so the tank lost water and had to refill itself every five minutes or so. Little things that became great annoyances due to the front desk horror. I'm sure I will never use this particular location again and am not sure if I'll ever use other hotels in the chain either.

Hotel was above average this time - not great but decent;
Stayed twice in a week - first time was excellent; Second time was 'average' (disappointing)
We were very pleased with the first stay and were hoping for the same during the second stay but didn't occur.
We would definitely stay again but would temper our expectations

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MykaC Pleasantly surprised
Breakfast wasn't the usual continental I am used to and the staff in the dining area and at the reception desk were great. I stayed in the executive suite. I appreciated the extra space but would have preferred the comfort of a room with two double or queen beds because the sofabed mattress was ok at best. The pool was a decent size and well maintained. I would stay there again.

The hotel itself was well managed and the staff were so nice and helpful, it made the stay very pleasant. The room was a bit noisy - I was situated near the ice machine that I heard and I also heard neighbors until late at night. The wi-fi didn't work at all well so I was not able to get some work done for which I had to access the internet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Morgan460 Noisy neighbors ruined our stay
The initial impression of the hotel was good, the lobby was very nice. However, it went down hill from there. We were not greeted as IHG members. The room and bathroom were very small. The reservation was made for 5 people, but there were only 2 towels and no linens for the pull-out sofa. The security guard was very helpful in getting the needed items. The pool was very small, and the overbearing lifeguard spent most of the time lecturing parents on watching their kids and telling kids not to splash. At about 2:15 AM, our neighbors made it to their room and proceeded to yell and curse for 2 hours. It took 2 calls to the front desk to get our neighbors to settle down, and each time they asked us to go find what room it was coming from! That's not my job, it's security's. The A/C was very loud, and cut on and off every 5 minutes. We really like IHG's hotels, but lately it's been hit or miss on the quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by geb5 Not bad. A few things could be improved.
It was pleasant, clean, and quiet, nothing great or terrible. We were with our two sons. Biggest issue was the sleeper sofa was so miserable that one of our sons ended up staying with relatives nearby rather than on the sleeper sofa. They were a bit too anxious to shut down breakfast in the morning when giving late comers just a minute to fill a plate would have been nice. On a couple of days we didn't get clean towels and had to go asking for them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Karrie99 Great breakfast , wifi not
The wifi was in & out the entire 6 days we stayed, & I
Have worked in this industry previously so the security for
The hotel guests should be taken more seriously, our room keys
Were deprogrammed & I had to go to front desk. However
The front desk rep didn't ask for my last name to look up my
Room # herself nor did she ask for ID to confirm myself , other guests were standing at the desk at this time . She only asked for my room # & programmed my keys. For security of guests
This should be something addressed. When I worked in this industry we would ask for ID & confirm that this was the guests room under no circumstances would we ask for the room # out loud.
Especially when other guests are standing around!
