Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn® hotels in Dothan, Alabama, a friendly Southern city that proudly proclaims itself “Peanut Capital of the World.”
Nineteen larger-than-life murals adorn downtown brick buildings near our Dothan hotels. One depicts an idyllic scene where a pair of laughing African American girls gathers handfuls of daisies in front of a historic black church. Stop by the G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum to discover how the former slave transformed the humble peanut into a major agricultural commodity by demonstrating the legume’s many uses. Today the fields surrounding Dothan grow half of the country’s peanut crop. From our hotels in Dothan it’s a short trip to the U.S. Army Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker, where you can get a close look at an AH-64 Apache and a UH-60 Blackhawk in one of the world’s largest collections of helicopters. Admission to the museum is free.
Guests staying at our Dothan hotels are within easy reach of home-style diners serving tender filets of blackened catfish. Add a side of fried green tomatoes and an ice-cold glass of lemonade for a true Southern culinary experience. On summer days, kids cool off in the lazy river and wave pool at Water World in sprawling Westgate Park, also home to wooded trails, tennis courts and an indoor lap pool. Spend an afternoon any time of year playing the classically designed holes at Highland Oaks Golf Course, located near our hotels in Dothan and an excellent value.
Book a stay at our hotels in Dothan in spring to see dogwoods and azaleas in full bloom. Bring the kids in autumn for the free concerts, parade and amusements rides at the National Peanut Festival.
