Recent guest reviews

Great location, staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and very comfortable, i will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

Very affordable for the location and activities, nice staff, rooms were spacious, and kitchens well appointed

The beds were too soft and not very comfortable. Minimal front desk staff and I was charged for dining in the restaurant on my bill and we never even went there. It was however cleared immediately by the front desk when I brought it to their attention. Treadmill TV was broken.

Wonderful location, calm and relaxing. Everything we wanted was walking distance away.

The room was nice comfortable , centrally located to e very thing .resraurents metro freeway

Great locale. Friendly and helpful staff Great quiet room. Comfy bed

We love staying at the Holiday Inn Express. It is convenient and the rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. We will continue to stay there in the future.

The hotel was very comfortable, unfortunately the pool regulations requires an adult to be IN THE POOL with any children under 13. Furthermore, children above 13 are required to pass a swimming test in order to be allowed in. In my opinion, these regulations are ridiculous. If the parent is guarding the children, the presence of the teen lifeguard is futile. This hotel not is great for KIDS!

Awesome service! The best service in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hotel is situated in a convenient area and the staff are helpful and friendly .

The hotel is in a very convenient location, accessible to all the major thoroughfares. Room was clean and updated.

It was perfect! Close to the metro, friendly service, next to restaurants

The hotel was quiet, clean, and well-located. Easy on and off to I-66, Ballston Metro only a few blocks away.

We stay here regularly and are always pleased with the service. Front desk folks are wonderful! We will be back.

The service was a bit indifferent. Restaurant felt institutional. The location is great, a couple blocks from the Ballston Metro station and easy to by car. On-site, ground level parking is a plus.

Location is terrific for access to the National Science Foundation. Rooms are acceptable and clean. Mine was slightly noisy due to hall traffic. TV worked poorly. Fan in bathroom was noisy and nonstop. Lighting good and there's a comfortable desk.

We had a great stay at the Holiday Inn. The people at the front desk were not very helpful when our room key didn't work. However, the head of the housekeeping was AMAZING and helped us figure everything out!

Clean, convenient, professional staff. $14/day off-street parking.

Had maintenance man working on room's air conditioning three times during a week-long stay. Several poor nights of sleep due to constantly malfunctioning air conditioning, and the front desk's lack of initiative in addressing the problem.

Hotel guest staff very courteous and helpful. We were in town visiting family for the 4th. Close to all events we visited.
