Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Always a great stay
I have stayed here numerous times. It is always clean and nice. Great breakfast so you don't have to go out. A variety of restaurants very close by as well. They were doing a few renovations on the floor we were on but nothing to hinder our stay. We will definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Phil 37 Renovation!
We've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express before and was very satisfied. However being charged a full rate for our stay and having to deal with the renovation work going on the floor where we were staying was not very pleasant.

AppleBee's, Cracker Barrel and Ruby Tuesday's are in easy access to this location. It's also easy to get back on the loop around Birmingham.

Overall it was ok, the price is high for the quality. You need to look at updating your rooms. You should have the lamps with the outlets for phone charges so i don't have to unplug a lamp to charge my phone. Restrooms should be updated as well. Decent stay but higher cost than I usually pay for a Hampton and not as nice. And your gym you should have the remote to the TV next to the TV and you only had 2 towels in your gym. I know you have a water fountain but you should have a water cooler.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoseG69 Excellent Place to Stay
This Hotel is one of the best hotels that I have been to in a whole. Where the desk clerk were extremely friendly and went above and beyond for me and my need. There is not a question that I will be coming back to stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by winstonsimon cold shower
I woke up to shower after a long day on the road the night before and the shower was cold. I told the person at the front desk what happened and all he said was, "Oh, I'm sorry". Before I loaded the car up to leave, he came up and told me that one of the hot water heaters went out and that must have been what happened. I have been a Platinum Member of the IHG rewards club for a while, which means I spend a lot of money staying at Holiday Inns. The night should have been comped by the hotel management at the very least. I am very disappointed in the service and quality of stay I had at this hotel.

Room was clean. There was a lot of renovation going on on all sides of my room at check in, but noise level was ok and they were done by 5:30.
Need more outlets without moving furniture.

This facility was easy to locate off the interstate. We were met with a smile, and check-in was a breeze. Relaxing stay with a variety of food choices with the complementary breakfast. We will definately return.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lardede not so helpful
Our room really smelled like smoke. It was sprayed to smell some better but for non smokers it wasn't very good. The front dest staff was at best not helpful. I felt as though I was bothering them. I called the night prior to my arrival to tell them that my 81 year old mother was meeting me and staying in my room and to add her to my reservation. I spelled her name and they seemed to type or write it down. When my mother arrived they said there wasn't any record of her. That was disappointing.
The rest of the staff was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HighwayHauler Great place to stay when traveling to the Northeast
This is a very convenient location to stay at when heading to the Northeast. It compares very well to all the Holiday Inn Express properties I have stayed in across the country. I definitely would stay here again and recommend it to friends, family and associates.

Carpet felt dirty, room smelled musty, wouldn't touch the phone it was filthy. Elevator barely worked at check in, was out of service at check out requiring carrying all luggage down from 3rd floor. Would not recommend staying at this motel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Florida9999 Holiday Inn Express Bessemer, Alabama
The first day I arrived I was exhausted from the drive. I was in town for a family funeral. I wanted to rest up from the drive and before gathering with family. However, the people that was in the room above me sounded like a herd of elephants above me. I went down to the front desk to ask about what was going on above me. They ensured me they would call up to the room above me to ask them to settle down. All it did was make it worse, it was like they got louder on purpose. So, I gave up on resting. I knew the people above me wasn't going to allow me to rest. We decided to go on to eat dinner somewhere.
Although the housekeeping came in our room each day to change our garbage and to give us fresh towels, they never replenished our toilet tissue. We ended up having to use our facial tissue and ended up running out of that as well. My cousin stayed there as well in another room and ended up giving us a roll of tissue out of her room.
The room was comfortable, the breakfast was great as well as the dining room. The only problem I had there was other people that was staying there was rude and disrespectful on cutting in front of you and snatching things out from in front of you instead of getting in the back of the line. Overall, the hotel was a nice stay. It was the other people that was staying there that made it bad on occasions.

Not a friendly greeting, no priority club greeting, dirty room, cracked tiles on floor. Overall, not what I would have expected at a HIE.

This will be the last time staying at this property. It keeps getting worse and worse. First, I have stayed here at least 40 nights in the past 12 months and as a Platinum Member I was never offered an upgrade. I didn't even know they had any rooms other than 2 Queen beds until a month ago when I had to change my room and they put me into a King room. The last time I stayed, I had to change my room TWICE in 4 days. The first time, the room had a terrible musty smell, which was coming from the mat in the bathtub. It was peeled up and had horrible gunk under it. This didn't happen overnight and it's a shame I had to point this out when they have housekeeping staff that clean the room EVERY DAY. When they moved me to a new room, it ended up being the same room that I asked to be moved FROM the week prior! This room had an air conditioner that was rattling very loudly because the front plastic grill was broken and loose. I can't believe I told them about this the week prior and it STILL wasn't fixed. Obviously the staff and the management just don't care about service and the owners probably only care about making as much money as they can. This hotel isn't cheap either! I've stayed in HIExpress hotels and full-blown HI hotels in other places that were WAY better in service and condition and a lot less per night. I even stayed at a higher-end hotel recently that cost less than this place! Next time I come to the area I'll be staying somwehere else.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pies Good breakfast
The hotel atmosphere was nice but the room had a stale odor and air even with the air conditioning operating. Male at the front desk checking out didn't say good morning or anything else for that matter, and simply handed me my receipt.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charp Room problems
Everytime I go to this place I have an issue with a room. The 1st time the room was not what I asked for. The 2nd time the room had been smoked in and when I told the lady at the front desk she gave me some spray which did not help. The 3rd time the room smelled musky! The 4th time I stayed when I got in my room the A/C did not work. They changed it out and when I walked it it smelled nothing but smoke. They changed it out with one from a smoking room. So, I had to change rooms because of the smell. If it happens again I will change places. I go here every month and stay 2 to 4 days.

-The room was clean but not ok.
