I have already commented on the hot water issue, but would like to note the customer service team seem to be involved. Very open, willing to listen, get to know the frequent guests, and just make them feel at home.
Business Center needs work. Computers and printers on a counter and the chairs are low. No ergonomics design, not comfort, not convenient. Either raise the computers so I can work standing, or lower them so I can work sitting down. The current design sucks.
This is a newer hotel, but does not look like it. Spend money cleaning it up on the floors. Carpets are stained and look bad. This makes it feel cheap.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tomcat11 Great night sleep.
It was a very clean property. The parking lot was very well lighted. There is a number of good restaurants very close to the hotel. The lady working the front desk was very helpful with her directions. I was out of town all week and stopped at the property on my way home. It was so quite I slept in that morning a rarity for me.

Family Reunion booked this hotel. Hello you travelers out there, sometimes, we should not go by reviews so closely. I went on line to see previous reviews before my trip and had mixed emotions about the quality and service of this hotel. However, upon my arrival my apprenhensions changed. Nice hotel! First impressions are so important these days and the front desk service changed my view immediately. The Front Desk staffer Lacey was absolutely fabulous! Polite, attentive, knowledgeable and plesant. My sisters and I completed our survey card and returned it the same day. The breakfast offered to their guest was delicious, sometimes not ready on time but still enjoyable. The server so helpful, food variety was extensive and tasty. One tiny issue with my room; the bed squeaked. LOL
Had a great stay!

This hotel is a great value for the area. Only negative is that the mattresses squeak every time you move or roll over at night. Staff was very friendly. I've stayed at most of the other hotels in the area, and this one is cleaner and nicer

After my 6 hour drive, all I wanted was to check-in and go to bed. The front desk made it easy, and our conversation was pleasant. It's always nice to be greeted with a smile.

From the moment we walked through the doors, we were greeted with a huge smile and were made to feel very welcome! The rest of the hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and genuinely seemed to enjoy working there. The rooms were spotless and the bed very comfortable. Everything was wonderful!

Staff is very friendly and attentive. They go the extra mile greeting, making sure all is well and responding to requests. This was true from the lowest level employee to the management.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gardenia330 Loved the room and the service
When I arrived, I was greeted warmly by the staff and was checked in efficiently. The room had a king bed and was inviting with a variety of pillow firmness and was quite clean in appearance. I slept quite well and hated to get up when the alarm awakened me.
The service at Kem's (restaurant on site) was excellent and beyond. What I had a problem with was the "tilapia special" that tasted like a catfish special. The fries were delicious, price reasonable, but I believe the fish was fake tilapia. I heard someone else say that a similar comment had been made by someone else.

I am well pleased with my family's stay at the Holiday Inn for our family reunion. The staff went out of their way to make my out of town guests feel comfortable and satisfied. I applaud the current management staff and will definitely use this location again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cici87 Very clean rooms and courteous staff
This Holiday Inn was had a very courteous staff, if you had a question or a need they were more than willing to help. Also our room was very clean and neat. We had to use the laundry facility both nights and usually washer and dryers in hotels take forever not here they worked very well and fast. Overall it was a very good experience and do recommend this facility.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Staying with a group
The motel was beautiful. The location is great. and I felt like the rooms were really nice. The problem was I booked 15 room 6 months in advance, I called a month in advance and I called the day of and when I walked in the door. They had no reservations for me. My group of 55 had to stand out side for an hour while the booked my rooms and cleaned some so we would have a place to stay. Then we had to move from 2 of our rooms because one was a king room and we had 4 people sleeping in it and one had no shower curtain. I had even sent my rooming list and credit card verification. Very disappointed. On top of all that they really didn't seem to care about it. I love staying in Holiday inn but I will not stay in they motel again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wtpburke There are better Holiday Inns
I would say if you are in the Birmingham area and prefer to stay at Holiday Inn's, you should look for another location besides Homewood. The drain in my room was clogged, there was no hot water. Even the iron was a pain to use. The bartender was terrible (watching Oprah Network or something like it) and not paying attention to the customers. The front desk person was great, that's about the one thing that went well at this location, the friendly greeting by her. Otherwise, a very disappointing stay for reasons that likely won't be corrected overnight.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DannyS Hotel is nice - staff could use a professionalism training class
I've stayed at this hotel many times in the past. Pretty consistent, facilities are maintained and kept clean. Staff struggles in my opinion on providing great customer service. I had 6 rooms reserved and called and provide individual names and preferences. Clerk mentioned thank you for being a platinum member and for your business we "have" upgraded and pre assigned you a room. Upon arriving the check in experience was horrible and long and guess what - that upgrade - I didn't get. I called down and asked and was told that those rod had already been given to earlier guest. Remind you I called at 9:30am the morning of arrival. When I challenged her about only being 32% occupied she backed down but I wasn't going down to change rooms. Upon checkout we couldn't find the desk clerk but then found him outside on his phone. He wore jeans and shirt - nothing that would have made one to think he worked there. In reading other reviews, it is apparent that there is a issue with management. I could understand one or two issues / complaints but when it's consistently a issue - then this type of behavior must be allowed by management. I am not staying I won't be back but I am saying that they have probably lost me and if something doesn't change quickly, I would assume others will do the same. Great location with a lot of options of hotels. Disappointing but something has to change.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mark2104 Room good, staff and service not so good.
I stayed at the hotel for 10 days and found the room to be good and kept clean. The hotel was, to some extent, let down by some of the staff who seemed to lack enthusiasm. On at least 2 occasions I had to wait for a staff member to stop surfing on their phone before they spoke to me and I also heard several complaining about their shifts and pay on a couple of occasions. There were some who were attentive, but they were in the minority.
The room rate during my stay was low, so I do think I got value of money.

Reserved six rooms - called day of to give other names and ask for a few other accommodations. Hotel said no problem. Once I arrived the check in experience was horrible and the asks were not available - saying oversold when hotel was only at 37% occupancy due to holiday. Stayed here several times but hotel doesn't go out of their way to provide that special customer service. Nice hotel, clean and a good stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Javillo Very Comfortable room but poor welcoming
I loved the hotel and the morning staff, but having arrived just passed midnight my family and I were far from being cordially received and treated by the person whom we we checked in. He was bad tempered and bad mannered. He did not acknowledge my platinum status, did not offer me the complimentary snack or water or anything else, nor did I attempted to ask for this small perks since he really wasnt at all corteous.

Spent four nights with two rooms for my family. The property didn't appear to be very professionally run. The condition of the property was a little disappointing. The landscaping going to the parking lot was poor. It looked like a few plants stuck in the dirt and watered occasionally. Fit and finish in our bath left a lot to be desired. We had to ask for extra towels every day because we had three in the room (which had two queen size beds).

The smoking bench is farther from the front door. Yippee!
The trail mix is a perfect snack in the gift bag! The HBO Guide booklet was in the room, but no HBO on the TV. The desk and bar staff were new and had no knowledge about the TV. Bummer. The bath counter was not completely clean, but I have learned to bring Windex.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pregnant8 Not what I expected
My husband and I frequently stay at Holiday Inn Expresses when out of town. We are reward card members and are usually pleased with service. We were shocked at the behavior of the front desk attendant. When we arrived around 2:30 there was no one on sight. We finally waved and got her attention where she was standing out back. We tried to check in and were told we were too early and there will be no rooms ready until 3:00. We waited and the room we were given had a broken air condition. My hubsnd requested a new room & we waited 30 min for the front desk to respond. I finally went downstairs to find the same front desk attendant talking to another employe. I asked about the room and she said " oh yea let me check on that. ". We were then put in a room that house keeping hadn't finished cleaning ( door open, no towels). After getting the room situation settled we had to listen to house keeping argue outside our room because rooms weren't ready. We were never offered the reward card gift bag we had to go back and request one. The night shift was very nice and accommodating. The day shift was a little disturbing and rude. I don't think we'll be visiting this hotel again.
