Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 106 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My Stay at Holiday Inn - Richmond South This hotel is located right off of I-95, so it is extremely convenient if traveling by car! The property was clean October 29, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible customer service I stay in IHG hotels 3-4 times per week. This is by far the rudest hotel employees I have ever spoken with. They were unwilling to help find a solution to problems that arose with my reservation. The night personnel were extremely rude and cursed at some of the guests I had staying there. I would never book a room at this hotel again. October 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by upstateny87 A/c unit sounded like a jet engine. Room and build out dated October 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice stay First visit to this hotel whilst on a business trip from Georgia. The room looked as if it had been recently refurbished and was in a very good condition indeed, I enjoyed a quiet comfortable night. Free Wi-Fi worked well at good access speeds. Used the exercise room twice and there is a good selection of current equipment which was also clean. Had a good breakfast at the attached restaurant, prices comparable to others, food definitely much better than most. I experienced excellent and friendly service at the front desk and in the restaurant too and would not hesitate to recommend this to other travelers. October 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stay great place to stay while I am at Battle Assembly, staff is so accommodating and engaging October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean and comfortable great rooms and very quiet area to relax after work October 14, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not worth using my points Checked in at night, had to wait for the clerk to finish his smoke when all we wanted was sleep. Among other issues with the check in process.. September 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by another great stay in RVA Great staff and good location to my business meetings. Rooms are always clean, fresh and well appointed. This has been my hotel of choice for 4 years and will continue to be my home in RVA. September 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Needs Improvement Need more help at the front desk and the quality of the food in the restaurant needs to be improved. September 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good overall experience Staff was very professional and helpful. Stayed in 3 different rooms on 3 different trips. Always clean and comfortable. The only problem was the loud AC and one room the AC barely cooled the room…but it did. The TV remotes have a long delay from channel to channel. A little annoying but over all, very satisfied with the rooms and staff. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by September 2014 Nice comfortable rooms stay, but food options are poor, especially if you don't have transportation. September 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Bar / Restaurant Although the hotel is not near much to do, there is an excellent bar / restaurant on the premises. Very close to I-95. September 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by woken up by cleaning lady i am a truck driver. i drove all night an checked in around 8 am. i no sooner got to sleep an they were pounding on my door which by the way had a do not disturb sign on it!! this has happend several times. i hav askd the front desk to take care of the problem to no avail!!! our company pays for a room everynight of the week an to have this happen all the time is uncalled for. im ready to make my own sign an attatch it to my door!! September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service i enjoyed my short stay. Would recommended it to others . The person at the front desk was friendly and very competent. The restaurant had good food and was a pleasure that we didn't have to travel to have dinner and breakfast. Would stay there again if I was in the area or traveling. September 2, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Employee Stay Had a great stay...it's my third time and each time its fun..fast...friendly...and great. Keep up the good work. Thanks August 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice surprise We stopped here on our way down South from the Phila area and so glad we did. Got there late and was greeted by a wonderful guy at the front desk. We got a great room with a great pool view. Room was oversizeed and roomy with a fridge & micro and huge bathroom. VERY clean. We were so impressed with this 95 hotel and highly recommend it. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Room The room was excellent. There was ample space. The bed was comfortable. The water pressure in shower was excellent. August 20, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disgusting This place barely served my needs of sleeping but it was so dirty and worn down that instead of feeling like a vacation, it felt like a prison sentence. August 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Have stayed at better Holiday Inns.... Considering the room rate my family and I have stayed at much nicer Holiday Inns. In fact we just arrived at this hotel after having stayed the previous night at the Holiday Inn Express, Hickory Mart, Hickory, North Carolina and I must say this place(Richmond location) seemed to be not very clean. In fact our bath tubs were so slow and backed up, it would take us about 15 minutes after each person showered for the next person to use the tub. Overall the quality was OK, nothing to write home about. The sports bar next door is helpful. We had breakfast there the next morning and it was OK. For one night we felt we could have gotten a better value for the money. And we had two rooms! Both rooms had the tubs backed up. There were stains on the carpet..... August 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good verall nice hotel, clean room. not the best location...no areas to eat nearby, no bars to hang out August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Travel on I 95 Stopped for a night, very pleasant place. Recommend this quiet place. August 9, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by room odor I stay at this hotel regularly and usually without any issues. The room I was in I stayed in the previous week but this time it smelled like an animal may have urinated on the carpet based on the odor. I notified the front desk after the first morning and the sais they would take care of it. When I returned in the evening the smell still existed. August 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Non Smoking room = cleaned smoking room Overall visit was acceptable, although being a long time non smoker there was definite evidence of my room being converted from smoking to non smoking, I woke as I once did years ago with a sore throat and cough as if I was back on the smoking team. August 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by staff was very friendly and accommendating the room was clean and very comfortable to sleep in .I appreciated the complimentry, frig/microwave. this made it easy to keep food hot and cool. It is in a good location. Quick access to the highway. The sport Grill is also a plus; the food was pretty good. The thing that I appreciated the most about my stay, was the friendly and very acommendating. I pray they are appreciated by their employer. I will come back to your property and will also recommend it to others. God Bless you all. Sincerly, customer July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HOUSEKEEPING NEVER A RETURN PHONE CALL REGARDING THE ITEM I LEFT IN THE ROOM!!! July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great stay We were in the area for a wedding and this was close to 95 and to where we wanted to be. From the check in to the check out, very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean, bed extremely comfortable and very quiet at night. Food was OK but NITA the hostess/manager of the restaurant was very nice and gets an A plus for her services provided to help make us happy. Would definetloy stay there again and recommend it to anyone in the Richmond area. July 24, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not loving this place When we checked in, the front desk attendant was great--I do want to recognize her as she was the best part of this hotel stay. The elevator was not as clean as I've seen at comparably priced Holiday Inn's. When we arrived at our room the smell from the room was unpleasant but bearable. The floor of the bathroom was very slippery--the property manager came, acknowledged that we had a problem and sent somebody up from housekeeping to clean the floor again. It was done well the second time. The high speed internet claim is a bit dubious We ate at the restaurant 3 times: dinner on night one, not bad, not great. We had the breakfast buffet on morning one...not good at all. On the second morning one of us had the buffet and one of us ordered from the menu; the buffet was still bad, the menu order took more than 20 minutes to arrive and ended up not being the dish that was ordered. All in all, I would not recommend the restaurant. The one morning housekeeping came to our room, only one bed was made, only two large towels were replaced int the bathroom i.e. no washcloths or hand towels were replaced and none of the toiletries were replaced. Housekeeping was very subpar. We went to the pool one afternoon, it had a faint green tint to it so we didn't bother getting in thinking it might be a bit risky. July 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nice room, terrible breakfast and fitness center The room was fine, the breakfast was terrible, and the fitness center was a joke For breakfast the only cooked food were scrambled eggs and the coffee was mediocre. The fitness center had 5 machines (3 treadmills and 2 ellipticals) and 2 machines actually worked. July 21, 2014
