Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Woodman51 Business Center out-of-service
When I checked in, I was given vouchers for breakfast, but not informed that I was being given any vouchers. I simply grabbed my key from the packet to use. On the next to the last day of my stay, I finally noticed the vouchers--so I got one free breakfast when I should have been able to eat there every morning.
And then there was the business "center." The fax/copier/scanner is not hooked up to an outside line, so any faxes have to go through the locked office and the staff has to send the faxes. The machine was also out of toner for the entire length of my stay (almost a week). We told the front desk staff 4 times (once to a manager) and they NEVER replaced the toner. Because of the low toner, not only could you not print, you couldn't scan either. The location of the "center" is out in the open where people walking by can see over your shoulder onto the monitor screen.
An ongoing problem at this location and many others is that the computers' operating system (typically Windows XP) is out of date and that forces the Internet Explorer to remain out of date as the latest version XP supports is IE 8. Since IE is up to 11? now, many sites I tried to visit on the computer says it is incompatible with that version of IE and tells you to either update IE (which you cannot do) or download Chrome--which I was finally forced to do. However, it is troubling that anyone can download a program onto the computer. The entire company and franchisees need to update all of their business center computers with a more recent operating system and updated browser.

Management and the staff at Hoover Holiday Inn AL was great and accomodating. The hotel lobby and dining room presentation was beautiful! Exercise room was clean. The hotel was very clean and in a perfect location!

Very quiet and comfortable beds. The fitness room was great as well as the customer service. I would recommend others to stay here and I would also stay here in the future if I need to.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ScottAB Great place, great Service, nice and clean...
I stay often in BHM, and even though its a bit out of the way, this is the HI that I stay in. Its somewhat new (less than 5 yrs) but it's always super clean. Compared to the other HI's I've stayed in around there in the past, (which I'll never go back to) this one is by far the best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drive70 Friendly, helpful service and clean hotel.
Arrived here without a reservation after a long day of driving and the staff welcomed me with friendly, helpful service. The check-in process was performed efficiently and quickly. The room was very nice and looked and felt clean. The mattress was a little too firm for my taste but that is a personal preference. This stay met all of the expectations I have for Holiday Inn Express.

The newer Holiday Inns have great restaurants with bars that make them a cut above similar brands in the same price range. The bartender was incredible and the wings were great. The cook even came and checked to make sure that we liked the food. The tables have individual televisions, plus there is a large one at the bar and another int he lobby. The room was modern with excellent internet. Room service was great too. I really love Holiday Inn and will be choosing them more often in the future.

The room smelled wet upon entering, however all the carpet, towels, and bed linen was dry. The microwave did not work, it did not heat my food item. I also awakened frequently because my right hip hurt, The pillows were comfy, but the mattress was not .

Arrived for next day business. Was greeted as I walked through the doors. Check in was very quick. The person was very friendly.
Christy at the bar made sure I was taken care of. She is fantastic at her job and an asset to the property.

We stayed at the Hoover Holiday Inn 1 night on points and had a great night. I was recognized as a IHG Gold member at check-in and provided a coupon for a free drink at the bar -- a good start! The room appeared relatively new and had 2x queen beds for my wife, son and I with plenty of room for luggage and to move around. Everything was in pristine condition and very clean. The room was also very quiet and dark when the windows were closed. Multiple pillows with differing softness were provided, adding to a very comfortable sleep. We had no problems whatsoever - a completely worry-free stay.

I enjoyed my stay at the Hoover Holiday Inn. The overall experience was certainly a positive one. I liked the appearance of the hotel's lobby and dining areas, and enjoyed the breakfast buffet there each morning.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by McRed Did not get much sleep!
I was in town for my sister-in-law's funeral and decided to share a room with my sister and her husband to help keep our costs down. I got to sleep on the sofa sleeper....big mistake. It was VERY uncomfortable. I could feel the springs so I did not get much sleep. The hotel's solution was to give me two baby mattresses to put on top of the sleeper mattress. This helped somewhat but then I had to deal with the noise from the plastic covering on the baby mattresses! You would think that a hotel as big and well known as Holiday Inn would have a few memory foam mattress toppers in their inventory to give to guests who actually have to sleep on the sofa sleepers. OR not have sleeper sofas at all.

We stayed at this hotel while visiting our grown children. It was clean, quiet and very convenient. The staff was friendly and the free coffee in the lobby each morning was hot and excellent. We highly recommend not only this Holiday Inn but most hotels in the IHG family.

I really enjoyed my stay, however I had an executive room, but I'm not sure what the difference in it and the regular room was. It seemed like a pretty standard room, nothing extra. I was let down that there wasn't a whirlpool tub or anything extra to justify the extra cost. Other than that my stay was very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DH55 Good location with a comfortable room
Wireless internet worked well and was easy to connect to. Room was nice with sufficient space for our needs. TV was easy to operate. Only "negative" I can think of is our request for extended checkout was not greeted with much enthusiasm by the staff. We eventually did get 2 hours additional time. Location was easy to get to.
