Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pjb929 Clean, comfortable hotel
I stayed at this property last week while in town for a business meeting. The front desk person was very attentive and professional at check in, as well as check out. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I'll be staying here on my subsequent trips to Rocky Mount.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KayB1122 Smoky Room and Bad Breakfast Choices
When arriving at the hotel we were assigned a 3rd floor room, when a ground floor room was requested. Upon check-in we we signed the obligatory non-smoking agreement and proceeded to our room on the 3rd floor and found it to smell horribly of smoke. We informed the staff and asked to change rooms but were told the hotel was full. It was difficult to be in the smokey smelling room for the night. At breakfast we found the choices limited and the fruit (bananas) brown and overripe.

Stayed 2 nights over the weekend,was on 3rd floor at end of hall.Was there for fire/ems classes all day. Was nice to get to the room and relax. Staff was very nice and answered all my questions when I had one. Breakfast was good and saved me from having to get something out before class. Room was very clean and bed was comfortable. I would stay there again for sure.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by momo1994 Ferrum Parent Discount not Honored
I was taking my son to Ferrum so I booked a room online but called the hotel to ask how I could get the Ferrum Parent discount. I was told to let them know at my check in and they would adjust my rate at the hotel. When I arrived, I told the young man at the desk what I was told and he said he was sorry that he would not be able to honor the discount. Later that night, I approached the same young man at the desk to inquire about getting a thirty minute extension on my checkout because I had to go back to the school, pick up my son and bring him back to eat and shower before leaving. Regular checkout is 11:00, I wanted to be able to stay until 11:30. Once again, I was given a polite "no, I can't do that". Overall, I was was very disappointed by the level of customer service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jbmack Has it all for a fair price
From the helpfulness of the front-desk staff to the pleasant soak in the hot tub and swim in the pool after supper, this place had everything we hoped for. While it's on a fairly busy road there was no noticable noise. The room was large and well appointed and very clean. We were pleased in every way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oliver1234 Amazing front desk crew!
We arrived late, but our daughter, a member of the Ferrum College Volleyball team had planned to meet us. The front desk allowed her to check in for us so she could get started on her good night's sleep! They knew she had a couple of games the next day. It may seem silly, but it really meant a lot to us to arrive and find our daughter (who we hadn't seen a while!), sleeping soundly. AND, I think they're all Ferrum College fans...! They were just so NICE! Breakfast is always great, too!
I just wish the prices were a little more reasonable, especially considering how often in the last 4 years we've stayed there. Even with the Ferrum Parent discount and the Priority Club, they're still a little steep.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by aviatorlady Dishonest and unhelpful
I stay in a lot of hotels. In fact, I stayed over two hundred nights in a hotel last year. I am extremely dissatisfied with Rocky Mount's Holiday Inn.
There were multiple minor things that set me off right from the start. The suite that we stayed in had dirty dishes for one, and the breakfast yogurt was spoiled. But, we were really disappointed because the room we received was mis-advertised.
My husband and I wanted to do something special for our anniversary, and since we spend so many nights in a hotel we decided to find a nice room or a cabin somewhere with a fireplace and a Jacuzzi. I stumbled across this hotel during the search, and we made a reservation and then CALLED them to verify that we had the room with the Jacuzzi and the fireplace. We were really looking forward to cuddling in front of the fire, even though it is only the beginning of the fall season and just starting to cool off.
Unfortunately, despite calling and verifying, nobody mentioned to us that the fireplace is turned OFF until winter months.
We probably wouldn't have been so bothered though if the people at the desk had at least apologized nicely or offered to reduce the rate, but they gave an obligatory sorry with an eye roll. The location is really the only pro I can give this hotel. Near Smith Mountain Lake, and the countryside is beautiful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by frequent1234 Nice place to relax
A good room, but I would have appreciated a fridge and a microwave. Know where I found a microwave? Under a stairwell, next to an icemaker.
Otherwise, a good room. Scrub the shower a little more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LHolmes Good free HOT breakfast.
I am a Priority club member and stay at this hotel often & when checking in we usually receive some kind of goodie bag with snack & drinks. Did not get that on this visit. Also requested a roll away bed for my teen daughter so she didn't have to share the small sleep sofa with my college student son. The roll away bed was not in the room when we checked in. Otherwise it was a good stay. I suggest you ask for a room away from the street on the back side of the Hotel as its next to a busy stoplight and trucks go by all night. Also do not like the fact that when you call to make a reservation they transfer you to someone NOT at the hotel. I like to request a room away from the street and its hit or miss when you cannot talk to someone actually at the hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by workinoutoftown need new fitness equipment
The room and staff were fine,as with most H.I.E.s.
The fitness center,however,needs new equipment.The stationary
bike malfunctions and becomes unusable,the elliptical squeaks
so loud it is unsettling,only one of the two treadmills works and
that one slams and bangs.
While the fitness center was upsetting everything else was fine

I have stays a few time at this hotel and always had a refrig in room and never asked for one. I stayed this time and was told only a few rooms have refrigerators. I am staying a again this week and called and they said no refridgerators, not sure the difference or the issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ladybug2057 Great location. easy access, and great services.
My husband and I went to Smith Mountain Lake for our anniversary as we have never been there before. The hotel accommodations were easy to make, cost efficient, clean rooms, comfortable beds, and great service. The only thing missing was a refrigerator to keep our drinks cold.
The hotel was great, the lake park not so much.

Stayed here for a graduation ceremony, although about 40 minutes away it was worth the drive. Very friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Had relatives stay very near the college and they said they wish they had stayed at this Holiday Inn, it was much cheaper and nicer.

This hotel is near our daughter's college. We will be staying here frequently over the next 4 years. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are well-appointed and spacious. The breakfast was hot and the coffee was excellent. The pool was refreshing.The hot tub was too hot .There was plenty of parking.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Walkers Damp room
rRoom was damp. Bed was damp and cold and the carpet felt wet at night. I often need to take a bath before going to bed to prevent a muscle cramp but the rubber seal of the stopper was so deformed that I could not fill the tub with water. Shower was hot and strong, though.

I have traveled a great deal and Rocky Mt. is a very good property. The rooms are large and very nice. The lady working breakfast does a good job. The only weakness I saw was at the front desk. It is frequently left vacant with no one in sight..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kicknrick Nice room but.....
The room was average with all the amenities. The only complaint was poor or no ventilation in the bathroom. The mirrors were steamy and it was extremely hot after showers which made it very unpleasant. Front desk was told about the issue but nothing resolved. Other then that it was adequate for what we needed and the breakfast was fantastic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChristianWriter Will definitely stay here again
This hotel had everything I wanted and needed--convenient location to the highway, and a CLEAN, COMFORTABLE room. There was absolutely NO musty odor when I walked into the room, the room was spotless, the A/C worked perfectly, and the bathroom delivered plenty of hot water for a relaxing shower without having to wait forever for it. I like the fact the door opened to a safe, interior hallway rather than to the outside. The breakfast--while it may not have had as many selections as some hotels I've stayed at--had enough selections for a more than adequate breakfast. (Do try the warm cinnamon rolls!!) Their coffee was outstanding.
I will definitely stay here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ann59 No Effort Made to Accommodate Request
My internet request for a room on the back side did not appear on the hotel's reservation form when I checked in. I begged for another room when I saw how close to the street the hotel is. Although the hotel was sold out, I find it hard to believe that of the 26 rooms that do not face the street (I counted at least that many), not one room could be switched at 5:15 p.m. when clearly not everyone had checked in. The street noise was so loud that I requested a rollaway bed and used the mattress to sleep on the bathroom floor. I was able to deflect most noise by keeping the ventilation system on a low temperature so that the fan wouldn't cut off. The hotel is very clean, and the breakfast selections were excellent. But, don't dare ask for a room change.
