Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Melody1 Comfortable and clean room. Accommodating staff.
Bed and pillows were like at home. Only issue was with getting the room dark enough....I'm used to total darkness. Bathroom was clean and towels were fluffy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by James1355 Summer Stay
This is a nice hotel. Compared to other Holiday Inn Express Hotels, I have seen better. Breakfast buffet was substandard. Sausage patties were dried out, tasted like they were cooked several hours before serving, then re-warmed and overcooked... almost a rancid flavor. Scrambled eggs were bland. I didn't like the coffee either.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Place to Stay
We traveled to Birmingham to celebrate a family member's 50th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff went out of their way to make our stay the BEST. When the breakfast area was too busy to accommodate all of the patrons, the staff opened an overflow area. Wow that's the epitome of customer service! When we forgot some of our belongings in our room, the staff at the hotel sent it to our home. Nothing was missing.
I love this Holiday Inn Express and look forward to our next visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Happy momma Stayed in two different rooms two different trips
My family stayed here as a half way point in our trip. Both times the rooms were well clean and the beds comfortable. One room did have issues with the air but it was very humid outside. The staff was very nice and helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable bed and great service
Great just a little less noise. Good breakfast and good service staff. People need to be a little more considerate of others staying here. They should not slam there door shut when leaving their room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jane1554 Great Staff and Great Breakfast!
My family and I have stayed at this HIE about 5 times now in the last year and I must say it's def worth going back we tried 2 other hotels in that area and none had the breakfast and friendliness of the staff at this one! It is an older hotel but so are All the ones in the area at this budget price we did have one complaint one of the rooms we were to stay in the tub around the edges was a Lil messed up and I'm weird about bathing my kids in public tubs anyways so we called the front desk and the maintenance guy was there in less than 10 mins and re culked it for us and they all worked with us Picky ppl the entire stay in an Extremely friendly manner! Recommend this hotel! Just ask if your not happy they will help! :):) indoor pool is a plus when traveling with kids too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cohen great as always
3rd time staying at a Holiday Inn Express over the last year, twice at this particular HIE. Both times the check-in & check-out were very smooth. They asked how I was doing, if I needed anything extra, and advised me about connecting to Wi-Fi. Breakfast was from 7-9am. Had a decent assortment of food and everything tasted great! From multiple brands of cereal to eggs, sausage, biscuits, coffee, juices, etc. Location is good, but a little tucked away from highway 280 so you can miss where to turn if you're not paying attention and not familiar with the area. Zero road noise while enjoying my stay...I think I heard an ambulance drive by once? Stayed in a 1 King before, clean, comfortable, peaceful. Stayed in a double bed room with same results. My only tiny observations were about the double beds and television during my 2nd stay at this hotel. The LG 32" tv's brightness was a bit low...and you're not able to adjust the picture setup. I was able to watch tv just fine but I'm a tech fanatic and it's the small things that get to me sometimes haha. When you sat down on either bed the top mattress gave in and the foot of the mattress raised up a few inches, I weigh 215lbs....so not the greatest double mattresses but still slept well and I strongly recommend staying at this hotel. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UnsatisfiedGuest Pleasant surprise
My family stayed at this hotel over a soccer tournament weekend and we were pleasantly surprised at the overall state of the place. It seemed fairly new, it was immaculately clean everywhere, and the staff was friendly and attentive. Great experience.
Only issue (a bit) was that the AC unit woke me up everytime it started, a few times during the night, but I'm a light sleeper so perhaps it wouldn't bother other people.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Parkeret Great customer service.
As an past employee in a hotel I know not everything will work right especially with technology. Somehow the system put charges on my card and charged me for the stay when it was to be covered by my companies card. When I addressed the situation the slender mid 40's gentleman behind the counter corrected it and even called my credit card company to take it off. He was as good as you can get when things go wrong. So I really appreciate it and appreciate him being worried about me, the customer, right at that point. He didn't tell me "well it will go away" he took care of it right there. So I loved my stay and felt well taken care of.

Room was quiet and comfortable. Frig in working order.
Breakfast- limited variety- eggs and sausage each morning
Exercise room- have been staying in this hotel and have complained of the poor repair of the equipment. Treadmill would not register I was on it and had to continue to hit enter so it would not shur off. Elliptical was loud with the striders striking the frame (been this way for at least 6 months). Water bottle was empty.

When I checked in as a platnum level the young girl offered me bonus points and I said yes but also asked for a bottle of water that costs the hotel no more than .40 cents she told me i cant have both and that the vending machine was on the third floor.
Sad considering its the second trip and I stayed at this property twice.
Great southern Hospitality I say not

"Stuck" here for two days during a surprise snowstorm. Staff was excellent and cared for us well. Property/room was very good for this class of hotel. Staff services and housekeeping was as good as a non-snow event and I'm sure they were working with limited staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by J965 Unheated Swimming Pool/dust in room
Stayed here in Nov, Dec and Jan. On each occasion was promised verbally on telephone swimming pool would be heated to proper temperature. Chalk board showed temp of 85 degrees for pool each time but our temp gauge indicated much lower. - pool was not heated on either of the three visits. Spa/whirlpool was not working properly on either occasion and there is something in the room where the pool and spa are located that is making a very loud noise. Dust was on baseboards/carpet in motel room on each occasion. Black mold in shower!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by atlantasusan Room needed a little attention.
Overall I would recommend this property. Decent room, comfortable bed, just a little housekeeping needed. Curtain off the rod in room so not dark, shower plugged, so water up to my calves and bathroom floor looked dirty. (could be dried grout all over floor). Housekeeping should of been aware of these issues and passed on to maintenance. Breakfast had no sausage or bacon and I always look for hot sauce to spice up the boring scrambled eggs but there was none available. Banana's were over ripe. Not good looking.
The highlight was the 3-11 front desk person. He was charming when I checked in and wonderful helping me with a fax issue. I wish I had written down his name because he was 5 star, and I appreciate it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gibsonic Quality is lacking
Rooms seem much smaller than other Holiday Inn Expresses I have stayed in recently.
The furnishings in the room seemed smaller and cheaper/lower quality than what I accustomed to at this chain of hotels.
The hot tub was not functioning
There was a long hair in the sausage gravy from the provided breakfast. I reported to the person serving that area.
Pancake machine was not operational.
Staff was unable to find or link my room to my IHG rewards account after two request to two different people.
Location is hard to identify from the road and access is tricky.
Holiday Inn 'cheaped out' at this location.
I will not be staying here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NOH3 Good Holiday Inn, quiet location
On par with almost every other Holiday Inn that I have stayed in.
The room was nicely furnished, quite, comfortable, and clean.
Breakfast area was large and the selection of food was quite adequate. Parking area was large enough for the number of guests, and the Inn was far enough away from the road to be peaceful. The gentleman on night duty the 29th of November had a very cold and matter of fact personnality. There was no acknowledgement of my Priority Club membership or Gold level status. That stood out, in comparison to other IHG properties that I have stay in.

Please note that this location is a Below Average Holiday Inn Express. This includes cleanliness of Common Areas, below average Televisions and below average staffing.
I have been a Platinum Card Member for 4 Years and was recognized as a Loyal Member by being given one (1) bottle of water that was pulled from below the counter. The staff member did not acknowledge me by name and/or a Platinum Member.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cvlaptop Nice place to stay
This is a nice place to stay. Nice front staff and breakfast staff.
Rooms are clean and neat. Beds are comfortable. They have a deal with the local fitness center and that is only about a mile away, very convenient.
They need to get the hot tub fixed as I often come and it is out of service.
Good value otherwise.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Blaster1va WiFIi Upgrades needed
This is a very good unit and has always been very clean. The breakfast room attendant is a delight and makes the day start with a smile.
My only complaint is very slow internet access. At times it is difficult to simply stay on line let alone transfer or receive files of any substance. At one point I went to McDOnalds down the street to complete business.
As a business traveller, this is a big deal.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WJ2013 BAD Experience
The first room I checked into wasn't cleaned, bed wasn't made up and trash was in the floor. The front desk clerk changed room and this room had no alarm clock in it. After going to get alarm clock returned to room only to find unknown bugs crawling on curtains. Bad experience overall.
