Good enough to rest

Posted Jul 25, 2015
Spent two days there, their workers are all very good and professionals. The cleanest was ok. Shuttle to Metro was very helpful and timely. Two things I have to say: 1) I am charged for breakfast, yet to verify with Expedia, 2) Hot season, thier AC is not that great to quench the heat. General, considering their proximity and value of money, I recommend to these in my shoes.

Very Loud

Posted Jul 20, 2015
Pros: Cost and friendly staff.
Cons: No counter space in bathroom. Keep pool open later.
Location: Close to the highway and walking distance to Ikea for a cheap breakfast. Close to Greenbelt station to take train into DC.
The only thing nice about the very loud air conditioner is that it drowned out the very loud highway noise. Try to get a room on the Ikea side of the building.

No Free breakfast

Posted Jul 5, 2015
I don't understand why the hotel offers free breakfast for some of their guest and does not offer the free breakfast for all their guest. When I booked thru Expedia's website their site said free breakfast but Expedia did not list this on my itenaray so Holiday Inn would not honor for my 8 day stay. However Holiday Inn did let me cancel the rest of my vacation. I guess it was Expedia's mess up!

Thanks for your comments about your recent stay at the Holiday Inn - College Park. We are a full service hotel with a restaurant here at the hotel that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is available each day at an additional charge. Any reservations that have their breakfast included have booked their rooms through a Package Rate. This rate is typically higher than those booked without breakfast. I am sorry if Expedia did not explain this to you. We apologize for any miscommunication and hope that you will consider staying with us should your travels bring you back to our area.

Pros: Close to highway & shopping
Cons: Load a variety of channels on your TVs. Include MSNBC at least.
Location: Shop Ikea
Pleasant, clean , quiet room. TV channel selections leave a lot to be desired. Do we really need 4 Fox channels?

National history day stay

Posted Jun 24, 2015
The shuttle was very accommodating. A little too far from the Mall but worked okay.

Thanks for telling us about your recent stay at the Holiday Inn - College Park. We are happy that you found our shuttle accommodating. Since we are 2 miles from the University, we are assuming that you are talking about our distance from the National Mall in downtown DC as being a little too far. We appreciate the time you took to share your experience and look forward to seeing you again when your travels bring you back to our area.

Did not meet expectations

Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: The location is convenient.
Cons: Could use a lot of updating.
Location: The area around it seem fine with some newer apartments and shopping and University of Maryland is not far away.
All staff were pleasant but at the time we visited it was an older Holiday Inn. We picked it because it is very convenient to 495. However, versus other Holiday Inn's and alternatives like Hampton Inn this one seems to be a little behind on its renovations. Nothing horrible but it smelt bad throughout, the common areas to include the lobby were very hot, and the rooms did not cool well. We would choose an alternative if we were in the area again.

Overall pleasant stay, close to UMD and really close of IKEA - had a pleasant time shopping there. Close to cafes and good korean restaurants, if you like these food. Dawbacks may be internet - I think it has improved but certian times of the day it is very slow. Hope it can be more stable in the future. The sound isolation is not very good so fingers crossed for good neighbors. But the staff are very nice and helpful. Overall recommended, if you are staying short period for business or academic activities.
