Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peggy56 Awesome Hotel and Staff
I booked this hotel online because it was close to where my daughter lives in Seale, AL. It was a wonderful place to stay! Convenient location, clean, spacious rooms, everything you could want. The staff made you feel right at home and genuinely cared about your stay and what they could do for you. The breakfast selection was great and the "breakfast ladies" went out of their way to accommodate you. Kudos to HIE in Phenix City. I will be staying here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Foxey Where do some folks get their manners.
Was a little leery of this place at first. I booked online and got an unreal deal. I still can't figure out why. That made me leery as well. I don't know what planet those naysayers were from because this was one of our best overnight stays ever! People were great. Holly was very helpful, referring us to a local fish restaurant (it was good too). Good sleep. Breakfast was great. Smooth Express checkout. I could not ask for more. Highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Taco62 GREAT Hotel, Poor awards program
I love this hotel! The staff is some of the best that this road warrior has experienced! Rooms are very clean and comfortable.
Unfortunately the IHG awards program will not qualify nights/stay when reservation is made with a Corporate Lodging Card (CLC). I am a loyal Hilton customer and was going to change my loyalty but due to IHG's inflexibility I will not be patronizing IHG properties and will remain a loyal Hilton customer.
Too bad for IHG!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dumbdora Not to HIExpress standards that I am accustomed!
We checked in around 2330 after a long very hot day at Jordan-Hare Stadium. I asked for and was given a 1300 check out time the next morning. Before 0930 I got the first knock on my door. The second knock came about 20 minutes later, both times I explained the late check out with do not disturb sign on the door. I received a phone call from front desk around 1030 and then later at 1215. We were out of our room by 1230. (In all 4 conversations never was I asked if I could or would check out earlier) Needless to say this Very Loyal HIExpress Customer was not happy. My room was clean. The bed was of acceptable comfort but the linens were old and dingy. I will not be a return visitor to this HIE location.

I stayed here for 4 nights when I brought my fiance to Fort Benning and it was a wonderful experience! We didn't know what his schedule would be like so we were constantly changing our plans and extending our stay. The staff was extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and relaxing! I would definitely recommend staying here and I will be back again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HFK1 Fair sound proofing and comfort
This hotel does not measure up to Holiday Inn Express typical standards. The building was only about 5 yrs old but lacks any soundproofing. We could hear every car that passed by on the nearby highway. We could even hear and understand the words from a person talking on a phone 2 floors down outside at 3 AM. We could hear every step the person in the room above made. The hallways were quiet only because there was a low occupancy that night and the adjoining rooms were vacant. Of the bed pillows, on a king bed two were hard as a rock and lumpy. At least one of the softer pillows smelled of cigaret smoke (it is a non-smoking hotel) When I brought this up at checkout time I was simply given some extra points on my account. Other hotels will actually guarantee a free stay if not satisfied. The only good point was the breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Max31 Bad experience at check-in
When I arrived at the Hotel I asked the front desk some questions about my priority club status. The desk clerk (KIM) was very short with her answers and didn't seem to want to give me any clear answers. I asked her that she seemed to not care if I stayed at this Hotel. She came back with a shocking answer," I really don't care where you stay." I told her that wasn't very professional and asked for the mangers number. She did write this on a sticky note and handed it to me. I didn't call the number. I was just glad to get away from the front desk.
Also I didn't receive my Priority Club Free bottle of water for my stay. I normally stay at this Hotel every other Tuesday. But this was probably my last stay there.

To a certain extent a hotel is a hotel. In this case, however, the enthusiasm, courtesy and constant inquiry as to our satisfaction is admirable. Even while riding the elevator down to checkout, the maintenance person asked how our stay was.
A model for other hotels to follow!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Granny0326 Love our stay
We are here on business for 7 weeks. We absolutely love the property. The staff is always welcoming, friendly and knows us by name. From the front desk associates, to the wonderful lady that cooks our breakfast, our day starts out great, After a long day at work we come into our "home away from home" to find out room spotless and smelling so fresh. Downstairs for our "hospitality gathering" and the sweet lady that greets us with a great smile and a glass of wine makes you feels like you are coming home. We have 3 more weeks and we look forward to staying here. We are hooked and would reccomend this hotel and a great place to stay. Oh yes. We love the beds. Great nigths rest. Would not hange a thing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rpctmc Updated and newer looking
Clean and very comfortable. We visit family in Phenix City and this one is the nicest/newest in Phenix City, AL. There is another Holiday Inn Express a few miles on the Columbus, GA side but it is across from an "adult" establishment which wasn't a great location for families with children. This one is in a nice, but not over crowded area and close to Walmart and a few other stores. Restaurants like IHOP and Applebees also close.
Was a little frustrated with front desk clerk who did not answer the phone. We needed the updated Wifi code which changes at midnight. We called from our room 6 times and then from our cell phones to the direct number... it literally rang until it disconnected. When my husband walked down there, the clerk was studying in the back. He saw her reading some school text books. She only responded when he called out to her. She never apologized and just went back to studying. There had been another customer standing at the counter that finally just walked away.
I also had a question about our reservation and asked if I could forward my reservation via e-mail to a manager. The front desk person #same girl# absolutely refused to give an e-mail address or name of the manager. Although she could not access certain information about our reservation, she was the SOLE person working the front desk. No manager, no assistant manager. It wasn't a big deal but just frustrating that you can't get past a desk clerk to answer questions.
Hope they will improve customer service because we otherwise enjoy the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bamaboi1 Excellent over all, but....
I had a great stay, but the only thing I didn't like was the fitness room and the Ice locations. If you wanted ice you had to go to the 3rd or 1st floor, which would be better if they had one on each floor. The fitness room needs free weights and a elliptical. Other than that the over all stay was exccellent.

The staff at this location was very customer focused and friendly. I was very impressed with every interaction I had with any staff member at this location, and they went out of their way to ensure my stay was pleasant and any questions or concerns were addressed professionally and promptly. I was in the area to attend my son's graduation from Basic Combat Training at Fort Benning and was pleased with this location and the overall experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CNJH77 Our usual pleasant stay
We stay at this property every year on our annual June family visit to Columbus. We can rely on the hotel to be everything we have come to expect from a Holiday Inn hotel. We no longer even consider staying anywhere else. You can easily get to North Columbus with a right turn out of the parking lot and to downtown or Fort Benning with a left turn. Not that traffic noise is bad, but ask for an odd numbered room to get the quietest location. Those rooms overlook the pool, and there's nothing at all on the other side of the pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tracy01 The place to stay in Phenix City
I travel to Fort Benning often for work and I have stayed at all of the hotels in the area. With out a doubt this is where you want to stay. Every employee goes out of there way to make sure you feel like your home. The hotel is clean and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is hot and features eggs, biscuits, gravy, sausage or bacon. The woman who services you for breakfast is very friendly and is concerned about your stay. There are good dinning choices nearby and also grocery and pharmacy. Whether you are a business traveler or on vacation you will enjoy your stay here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Byago Good Place to Stay
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn several times since it opened several years ago. Always friendly staff. This particular time there were several guests from out of town, mostly young people wanting to enjoy their time off. Became a little noisy however, I was mostly not aware as the guest services personnel handled the problems in a courteours and timely matter. For the most part, the other guests were not disturbed.
I will say, this is the place I stay when I need a hotel in Phenix City/Columbus. Always clean and well taken care of, friendly staff, well maintained.

Nice hotel. Most times when I went to the front desk, the staff seemed "preoccupied" and "short" with me. They did not acknowledge me as a Priority Club Member. A couple times when I asked them something, they seemed to come off that I was really bothering them. I did deal with the manager a couple times during my visit, however, and he was especially nice and each time he thanked me for being a member and asked if there was anything that would make my stay better. Real nice. Other than that, the hotel was excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by arabian75 Very nice people! Clean!
Came in for a 2 day pass with our son. Very, Very friendly people. Clean facilities and loved the shower. The shower had the highest PSI pressure I had ever felt in a hotel and I loved the shower. Only downside was the fire alarm woke us up early in the morning on one of the only mornings we could sleep in. Other than that little instance we would stay here again in a New York Minute. Southern Charm (friendly people).

The hotel is pretty good, the staff didn't seem to care if we was standing there or not. Not one word was said about the Priority club membership . The rooms where nice and clean. As we visit this area a lot for business, we will try another ( out of our way) hotel next time

My wife and I enjoyed the stay a great deal. The front desk person welcomed us with a smile and by name! When we pulled into the parking lot we noted three school buses and were concern about teenagers running around all hours of the night. However, that was not the case, the teenagers were very well behaved and do not cause an issue with our stay. We only had one very small problem; the TV did not have good reception (snow) on all the channels, but we did not stay there to watch TV.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hoorah Huge Room
We were here for my son's boot camp graduation from Fort Benning, Georgia. Close to base and easy drive. We had a queen bed double suite and it was HUGE! Probably the biggest hotel room I have ever stayed in. Upon check in, we were trying to get our luggage up at about 1030pm along with a 2 year old and a 13 year old who had just had a 14 hour car ride there and apparently someone complained we were loud and the manager on duty said "that can't happen again". Seriously?? We weren't even given time to get our luggage in the room before we were reprimanded. Whatever...... The only complaint I had about our room is the bathroom light would not stay on. I put my makeup on in the dim light from over the shower because the light over the mirror would not stay on more than a few minutes. We did report it but it was never fixed during our stay. My son had a few days leave and his room air did not work and they were unable to fix it. His room was 80's his entire stay. They did comp one night out of three for him and then charged his card for all three nights. He was flown out of the country so I called and complained. It took me 3 days to speak to a manager after we left but I did get the one night credited back to him. The breakfast was OK. Not too crowded. I would stay here again if I needed a big room but probably would pick the Marriott in Columbus.... It has a Houlahan's attached to it. No bar here....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TN2012 Great service. Comfortable beds
This was my first experience staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Phenix City, Alabama.
The room was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Front desk staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
My only complaint had to be the noise from other rooms. The walls are VERY thin. Conversations from the next room were easily heard, as well as the snoring!
The person(s) staying in the room above me spent most of the night making noise. Needless to say, I did not get any rest. I had requested a two-night stay, however, I decided to check out after night one.
