Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigBee Super Clean & Quiet
I always look for HI Express when traveling. I find them to be clean, comfortable, quiet, with all of the amenities of a 5* hotel without the huge price tag. The Norfolk HI Exp did not let me down! Super clean with extremely comfortable bed!! Will definitely return!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by koolcurlz Nice Rooms, Bad Breakfast
My husband and I were visiting the area for the weekend and didn't especially like the area or the breakfast provided at this location. The rooms were very nice and well equipped. The bathrooms were spacious - the door doesn't hit you while you are on the toilet. The bed was not nearly as comfortable as the previous two stays we have had at a Holiday Inn Express. Since the hotel is just down the road from the Military Base, there were many military folks who stayed there. I wouldn't bring children to this hotel, since there was a lot of adult activity (partying# in the area and loud people both day and night.The breakfast, was not very pleasant. The first morning of our stay we went to breakfast about 8. The eggs were not replenished and the gravy was all but gone. No meats #bacon, sausage or ham) were provided with the Holiday Inn Express breakfast here like we have had at others before. There was no more fresh fruit either. In addition to the poor food selection, there was no where to sit. The few tables provided were taken so we had to take our meal up to our room - not our idea of a pleasant breakfast. The next morning showed improvement in the readiness of the staff to replenish empty food trays.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alex2 Management does not care about guests
Other than a room, when staying at a hotel you look for someone to look out for you when things don't go according to plan. I became a priority club member because of a great manager at another location, now I have a bad taste in my mouth. I had forgotten an item in my room, contacted the hotel the very next day, and was reassured all would be taken care of. (I have forgotten items in the past at other hotels with no problems.) Lo and behold, after calling a few weeks later to inquire where my lost belongings were, I was told "Oh, I thought that was sent..." Considering it was a lost cause, I replaced my belongings. Then to my shock it was sent over a month later - FedEx overnight - with me incurring a hefty bill from FedEx because they listed me as the sender as well. A regular stay at the hotel cost me extra $$ - some "priority" I became.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaryJ2013 EXCELLENT AND SPACIOUS
I was shocked when I walked into the room to find out how big and spacious it is. The rooms are huge with seating areas, two big TV's, Fridge, microwave and temp control.
I will recommend you stay here and the credit card hold was refunded quickly after cash was paid.
Clean and comfortable.............Easy day vacation!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 8634hd Always stay there
At the at end of a long drive, especially if it has been both a long day and a difficult drive, I know that I will have a quiet restful night at this hotel. The available amenities: the pool, the exercise room, the business center and the breakfast are a convenience, if I want them, but I usually come there just for some TV and to sleep. In the words of some movie character, "I'll be back".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Justin8610 Great stay on Labor Day weekend!
My girlfriend and I stayed here over this past Labor Day weekend and had an excellent time! The hotel is located in an excellent place with all types of shopping stores around and a straight shot down road to oceanfront only 15-20 minutes away. The staff was very courteous. As for the room itself we were staying in a jacuzzi room. There were a few hairs we spotted around the room and bathroom, but I think that is to be expected since housekeeping can only do but so much. The only issues we experienced was we left the room and when we came back there was a little bit of water in the jacuzzi. We called down to the front desk and they sent a very knowledgeable maintenance man up to our room. He was knocking on our door within 3 minutes of the call. He explained that the large volume of guests (the hotel was booked full that day) were using allot of water at the same day and it was backing up some of the drains (such as ours). He offered to clean it for us but I did not see the need to have him do so. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KWAS Good hotel
The hotel is very clean and has nice interior design. The breakfast area is very large and there is no issue with waiting for table. Just 2 potentials for future improvements:
- it would be good to have pan cake machine there (like in other HIX hotels)
- there was some strange smell in the room - it wasn't very bad, but something to look at...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FLDan Nice facility near dining, shopping and the airport.
Nice facility for a lengthy stay, well kept and clean near the essentials. Unfortunately I was not greeted as an IHG reward member, that is a nice touch when I have to be away from home for work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sweets3152 A ok
We traveled 22 hours 1 way for this trip. When we arrived at the hotel we were tired. Check in was easy and quick. We stayed for 1 week. Every time we went out and returned our room was always cleaned. The breakfast was limited compared to other Holiday Inns I've stayed at. But overall, our stay was awesome, comfortable, and we recommend 2 others.
The envelope card was In reflected club member but recognized at all besides that. This is the first time we haven't been recognized and given complimentary snack or water. We also get something in the a candy on the pillow.
We were treated like " whatever your not special ..so what your a member."

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Beautiful place but not ideal room
We come to this hotel for 4 years and we love the fact that it's suites, ideal with kids. This year, the room (5th floor) was good but there was a smell of bird poop from the ventilation. We mentioned the first day but they just sent a product in the air to feel better. The smell was still there the other day. We were there for 6 days. It is as if there was a bird family in the wall.
Also, the breakfast in the morning was very ordinary in comparison with other Holiday Inn.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bigcupfan14 What is Priority Club (IHG Rewards)???
Rewards recognition and a friendly staff are the two things I expect when I check in at any IHG property . I got neither when I checked in here. Not impressed.
Recommend only because once you get past the front desk it's basically what you expect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Susie2 Great Staff, Comfortable Beds!
There are a few suggestions I have for this hotel: upgrade the breakfast selection a little...put some fresh cut-up fruit in the selection, add a waffle maker, keep the coffee pots full. The rooms were nice, the beds are nice, the bathroom clean. The walls in the bedroom were in need of a paint/cleaning job! Footprints and handprints all over the walls:( A small 'sun' deck would be great somewhere near the pool...even just a few chairs outside the door by the pool area would have been nice. Also, the lighting in the suite's living room area is so dim that no one can sit out there and read at night.. On the plus side, your staff was spectaular, friendly and helpful! Your elevators are fast, and your housekeepers were 'on top' of their game:) We were in your hotel for 6 nights, and will possibly return to it should we get back to the Norfolk area in the future. Thank You!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JennyPo Excellent staff, great stay
My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed here on a 4-day trip to Norfolk in July 2013. The staff were all very helpful - one even brought a corkscrew up to our room. Rooms were nice, beds super-comfy. Breakfast was really good - hot eggs and at least one other hot choice each day. I wish there was more fresh fruit. Maid service was pretty good, but one day I could tell our room had not been vacuumed. Overall, a great experience, and I would stay here again any time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zeti Good base for hitting the beach
My family needed a place to stay while visiting Virginia Beach and this was a neat and relatively cheap alternative to staying on the beachfront. We didn't mind the 30 minute drive in the morning and evening. There is a reason I keep going back to Holiday Inn Express... I love the clean. Kids love the included breakfast. This stay was no different.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 8634hd Comfortable place to stay
I almost always stay at Holiday Inn Express when I visit Norfolk because it is quiet, especially the 5th floor. The beds are comfortable, although I wish the pillows were larger. The 2 room arrangement is especially welcome since I can leave my stuff in the front room and not see it when I wake the next morning. Why WIFI?
It would be nice to not have to work when I travel, but WIFI is there when I need it. Was there ever a life before emails? The coffee in the morning is actually good and the bagels just remind me of home.
Enough already. I'm looking forward to my next stay. If only you excepted my 2 small dogs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PWANDERSON Great Room!
I don't write reviews often. My wife and I are very particular, and clean...and this place was great. The room was clean and was really spacious. It had a living room, kitchenette, and then a separate bedroom. They set up a crib for us, and it was waiting when we arrived. Only downside was that check in is at 4pm. We did actually check in earlier around 3:30pm, but we had to get ready for a wedding. They clerk let us use the public bathroom to start getting ready. The clerk was understanding and hurrying his staff to clean the room asap. Nice, clean hotel,...and a very busy one. It was booked solid when we were there. Surrounding area has lots of shops, places to eat, Walmart, etc. Hope this helps.

Left shoes in room - know exactly where I put them - called about them 3 times, was promised a call back twice, third time did talk to general manager and was apologetic yet no recourse.
Will not be staying here again.

We stayed at HIE in Norfolk for my daughters softball tournament. The room was huge with two queen beds and an outer sitting area that could be closed off from the bedroom. The hotel was close to shopping and a large variety of restaurants. We could not have asked for a better hotel for the weekend!

Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites was excellent. This is my third time staying in this particular hotel and every time is better than the last. The staff is very cordial and kind. Always received with a smile and assisted in any and every way possible. I will definitely be back for another nice relaxing stay at this hotel. Thank you Management and the Staff for such a warm welcome and comfortable feeling.

This appears to be a newer property. Clean and updated throughout. You can walk to nearby shops and places to eat. Our room was cleaned but carpet was still damp due to cleaning before we arrived, had not dried by morning so a little icky to walk on. Outlet in bathroom did not work and the hair dryer was attached to wall so I had to go with wet hair next day:( My daughter enjoyed the pool but the hot tub had dirt and sand all in the bottom.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KevinSW Comfortable Spacious Rooms
I have stayed at this hotle property twice and will do so again due to proximity and room comfort.
Staff id freindly and courteous and can help you with whatever you need. The location to the airport is a quick 5-10 minute drive and restuarants are plentiful in the area. The Navy base is just about 10-15 minutes away and is very easy to get to.
If staying here again I will ask for a higher floor as the walls seemed a bit "thin" and the plumbing noise with showers and drains on the second floor was quite loud from other rooms. My previous stay on the fourth floor was free from this noise and I will make sure to note that.
You may need to ask for soaps and shampoos. Each time on day two none had been replenished by the maid staff.

We have stayed here twice and have found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The suites are spacious and the beds very comfortable. There are restaurants located within walking distance and Walgreen is adjacent to the hotel. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again. Our only minor complaint was that the mirror in the bedroom had not been cleaned.
