Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mo_on_the_go Close to Airport plus shuttle
We had an overnight but my main concern was getting my husband to the airport, very early, without me driving him. Not only did he catch his early flight due to the shuttle, but was able to have breakfast at 6 am before the flight. I was able to sleep in and enjoy the delicious breakfast a few hours later. I would definitely stay again.

WELL I HATE NEGATIVITY BUT, I GOT IN ABOUT 1130PM, THE POOL WAS STILL BEIN USED AND LATER FOUND OUT THAT I HAD THE ROOM NEXT TO THE POOL. THEY LEFT THE BRIGHT LIGHTS ONALL NOGHT LONG AND THE CURTAINS DIDN CLOSE ALL THE WAY. THE A/C UNIT WAS NOISY AND THE REFRIDGARATOR MADE THE MOST NOISE.
I SLEPT BECAUSE I WAS DOG TIRED AND I WOKE ABOUT 0500 AND THE BREAKFAST AREA WAS NOT OPEN YET. THE COFFE WAS EMPTY AND NO ONE WAS AT TE FRONT DESK SO I LEFT.
I THINK TWICE ON CHOOSING HOLIDAY INN AGAIN.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kobe39 Still under construction.
Hotel is still in the process of being updated. In my opinion, it is not yet worth the cost. Personally, I stayed for business and could only take an ice cold shower and was subsequently delayed for a meeting.

I Love all Holiday Inn Express & Suites but this one is run down and in desperate need of Makeover and in their defense they were in progress of doing so.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tim2323 Needs Attention Immediately
Whenever I travel I normally stay at Holiday Inn Express. When I arrived at this Holiday Inn Express there was construction going on, which normally wouldn't have bothered me because I understand that a hotel, at times, needs to renovate. However, when I entered the room it smelled like I was in the 70's. It smelled old and musty, but I needed to get to work and get some rest so I didn't mention anything. However, my chief complaint did not arise until the morning when one of the workers decided to start moving a scissors lift outside the hotel at around 6:00 am. The back up alarm was obnoxious, and I am sure I am not the only guest who was awakened to that horribly loud beeping noise. Someone in management should have been on top of that. Its a hotel, people sleep in hotels....when I went down for breakfast the juice machine was out of order, the pancake machine was out of order, there beef gravy (which I get a every stay was non-existent.), no blueberry muffins, no chocolate milk, etc. I know this had nothing to do with renovations so I am just curious as to the lack of these items, and their state of repair. Overall, I was not happy with this stay. I would have been better just going somewhere else. I am, and have been a priority club member for a very long time. I stay with Holiday Inn Express because I normally know what I to expect when I arrive. But after my last two stays I may just start looking elsewhere.

Not what to expect from a holiday inn express. Outdated small stinky rooms. Run down hotel in need of major renovation. Staff was very friendly and helpful, but not up to par as far as the hotel goes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Declansmom Renovations in progress on this older but clean property
We stayed there as a stopover on the way home. The Renovation is primarily in the lobby and it is clear that the changes will be lovely based on the breakfast room.
The room was clean but dated. No fridge or microwave.
If I were passing through and needed a clean, quiet, easy to access location, I would stay here again.Hopefully the renovation will include updating room decor as well.

FIRST IMPRESSION WAS NOT GOOD DUE TO CONSTRUCTION.
MY OPIONION CHANGED ONCE WE SETTLED IN.
STAFF VERY GOOD AND ACCOMODATING.
BED AND ROOM VERY COMFORTABLE.
HOT WATER HOT.
BREAKFAST ITEMS WERE VERY GOOD AND GOOD VARIETY PRESENT.
TWO COMPLAINTS-FACILITY NEEDS A TRANSPORT CHAIR AS MY WIFE HAD MEDICAL NEEDS AND COULD NOT WALK FAR WITHOUT NEEDING TO REST. THE SMELL OF CIGARETTS AT THE FRONT DOOR WAS TERRIBLE.
I GIVE YOU A 9.5 OUT OF 10!

Nice hotel. Some renovation going on now but it is not an issue and did not inconvenience us in any way. After a long drive in, it is nice to unwind in a nice room and get much needed rest. No worries booking with HI Express and the quality is consistent with other HI hotels I've stayed at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by davenlea Comfortable, quiet
We were very tired when we got to the hotel-but we were amazed at the driveway UP the hill! That was a very cool entrance. There was some remodeling going on, but everything was cleaned up and tidy. The woman at the front desk was very helpful because we weren't familiar with the area-we were on our way to Georgia for a family visit. She gave us good information on where to go and how to get there.

I know it was under construction but there was no excuse for the mess we had to put up with.
No discount was allowed because race fans would be showing up 2 days later That's a quote from the front desk
I do expect better from Holiday Inns

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Angel 7 Pat, Breakfast Associate, was GREAT
Each morning, we were greeted with a smile from Pat. All the food was ready for our large group of 40 people, plus other guest. Pat was pleasant, knowledgable and proficient in her duties. At that time in the morning it was so nice to have an efficient person there to help us. Pat is an asset to your hotel. I did enjoy my stay with you.
Thank You. Alice, Room 112

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ndoty114 First time staying here on business and will be my last.
Stayed here 3 nights as I was in town on business. Beds are not comfortable at all. I was in room 116 and had noisy neighbors next door all night long on the final day. I made calls to the front desk and was assured that they would look into it. However, the slamming doors continued as I believe the desk clerk was too busy hanging out with her friends in the hotel lobby to contact room 114 and ask them to quiet down.

Had a reservation for non smoking room when I arrived they only had smoking rooms left. When I complained the girl said I'll just cancel your reservation. The shuttle was not running to the airport and all the front desk told me was you can call a cab. I'm not in a hurry to go back.

Room needed better instructions for use of phone. The instuctiions on the phone said dial room number for room to room calls. I had to go to the front desk to be informed that I had to go through the front desk to make a call. Also both chairs were very uncomfortable, Overall I had a good experience. I always stay at the same hotel when I visit Birmingham.

Send the manager and some key staff from Birmingham Irondale to Improve the Holiday Inn Express in Abingdon, VA. The Abingdon facility costs quite about 20% more and is not nearly as nice based on both staff and the free breakfast. It is like they belong to two different chains

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were comfortable, but the floors had an overpowering smell of smoke that was extremely off-putting. I would likely consider another hotel in the future.
