Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Samsgram Pleasant Stay, Convenient
We have stayed at this hotel several times and utilized their option to leave our car there and have their shuttle take us to, and pick us up from, the airport. Although the hotel is older, the inside is quiet, clean, and comfortable.
We ate dinner in the hotel the night we arrived and breakfast the next morning. The food was good and the service was very good. Staff members throughout the hotel were very pleasant.
The only downside was on our return from the airport. It would be quite helpful to inform the customers to call the hotel after luggage is picked up and where the shuttle pickup will be (outer lane outside of baggage claim). We placed at least 4 calls to the hotel, over a 60 minute period, describing where we were standing (immediately outside baggage claim 1 & 2) and were told repeatedly the driver was there waiting. He had actually taken 3 other people to the hotel and was not where we had stated we were waiting.
Still a very nice visit and we plan to stay again in the future.

Overall stay was sufficient. It was convenient for flying in late at night. However, the area is not a desirable area - but the hotel did have proper security measures.
The guest room was fine - but hallways are very worn. Needs updating.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ECheng it's the people that makes it or breaks it
Hotel itself is ok.
Staff is hit and miss. Some were friendly, some were like giving you a job interview.
Restaurant: ordered shrimp fetacuni with mushroom and broccoli- not sure why they put all the parmesan cheese in that it was more like Mac and cheese. Asked the waitress about the happy hour snack, she went to check and never told me what it was. There aren't many restaurants near by.
Overall. If you don't have a car and need to stay a day or two, you can pull thru. If you are staying longer, I would not recommend it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stevie212 Time for renovations!
Staff upon arrival around noon was not very smiley nor helpful. Barely answered my questions and the room I was originally set up in was for guests requiring special services. The carpets should be cleaned or changed as well as the wall paper. Upon my return a few hours later, I noticed that the air conditioning was not operating and it was extremely hot in the room. The staff in late afternoon was much friendlier & helpful. They got me a new room which was somewhat more up to date and cleaner. Although convenient for early morning flights out to the airport, I recommend that this hotel go through some upgrading & modernizing.

Good stay at the HIE. It was a little loud with road construction, but i think they lowered prices also. Very convenient by the airport.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sturgeon Horrible experience
Having just stayed at two other holiday inns I was shocked at the experience here. There was no one to meet us at the airport guess you had to call them nice to have been forewarned. Check in we had a grumpy woman who failed to give any info on the pool restaurant etc. We found a lost lady in the hall who didn't know which room number was hers she was looking for an internet code. Many of the elevator lights were burnt out. My husband had to push the door in with his shoulder. It was warped. I could not get out of the bathroom he opened the door. The restaurant could have been good but the fish was too breaded and greasy. The chips were transparent with oil and the beef tough. The bed was uncomfortable and the bathroom stained.
When we went to get airport transportation we were told he was picking up at the airport and would be pack soon. Twenty minutes later someone called him and he arrived with nobody in the van.

The staff at the hotel were very courteous. There was a severe Thunderstorm during the dinner hour and, despite the power to the building being interrupted, the food was well prepared and promptly served.

From the exterior this property looks like an outdated hotel. However, this hotel has been remodeled and the staff performs as well as the interior looks!
The restraunt/bar is very good, this removes the need to venture out for dinner.
I travel every week and will stay here every time I am in Birmingham.

Hotel was outdated, there was a very musty odor in the hallway. Food was overpriced, portions were small.
I would never stay or recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Laurabbnl In Need of a Facelift!
Generally I am fine staying at Holiday Inn's but the Birmingham Airport facility appears to have been forgotten. In desperate need of a facelift in the rooms and corridors, it was very run down. Although there is little control over what goes on in the surrounding area beyond hotel gorunds, it is not located in an area where I feel completely safe.

I try to stay at a HI hotel when I can, mainly in the UK, and the standard here in the US is what I'm used to.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 6gibsters Left at the airport
As a Platinum member, I stay at a lot of Holiday Inn properties around the US. I normally don't write reviews, but I was so frustrated with my stay here that I felt I needed to.
I realize that the courtesy pick up at the airport is what it is- a courtesy and the hotel has the right to tell me it is not available. However, once I had gotten my luggage at the airport I called and the lady at the front desk was not very helpful. Her comment was," did you look outside?" She said she would have him to circle back around to pick me up. No one ever came. I recalled the front desk 40 minutes later and the driver was at the hotel. The lady at the front desk did not tell him I was waiting. The driver apologized and said he was not told to pick me up at 10:00 pm. Once arrived at the hotel to check in, I had the privilege of getting the same lady at check in. Not once did she look at me and address me. The gentleman beside me was greeted very professionally by another agent. This lady said, " I need your card and drivers license." She never once looked at me. She checked me in laid my cards on the counter not handing them to me. Very Rude! I was suppose to stay two nights but I am moving to a competitor tonight.

Don't let the aged exterior fool you. It's not home but for the price it rates above most places I have stayed while traveling on business. If you are looking to feel welcome while you rest yourself in a clean and comfortable room this is my choice in Birmingham.
