Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paper65 Great except
Great people, comfortable room, and an impostor in the bathroom..
Secretly, they pretend to be a drain for the water in the tub/shower, but in reality they're stoppers and slow, slow drains that covet the water they've collected!!
The drain in this room was part of this secret clan, holding water at ankle level well after the shower was done.
It'd be nice if the hotels could put drain testing and clearing as part of the regular maintenance.
As someone who's only in the room for one day, I don't find out that the shower (aka-dirty water pond) drain doesn't work until it's too late.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cookdaddy1 My favorite place !
Great place to stay, room and grounds are very clean. great recognition for platinum membership- got a very nice upgrade, and this makes the membership worth it for me! Great staff, all nice smiling faces, KAT is awesome, took care of everything I needed, even called the room to confirm everything was good = AAA+++ customer service! Close enough drive to Mobile, and yet a nice retreat from it too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MADDAWG64 PLATINUM MEMBER REVIEW
I HAVE RECENTLY ENJOYED A 3 NIGHT STAY AT THIS LOCATION FOR BUSINESS. I HAVE STAYED HERE BT 5-10 TIMES THIS YEAR ALREADY. I HATE POSTING REVIEWS AND FORGET TO DO SO MOST OF THE TIME. HOWEVER THIS ONE IS LONG OVER DO.
THE FOLLOWING DISPLAYED TOP NOTCH SERVICE IN EVERY AREA AND KEEP ME COMING BACK OVER AND OVER.
TJ TOOK CARE OF ME MY FIRST STAY LAST YR AND IS WHY I KEEP COMING BACK. HE WENT BEYOND IS CALL OF DUTY IN A FAST CHECK IN, ACKNOWLEDGING PLATINUM TREATMENT AND VERBALLY EXPRESSING APPRECIATION OF THAT STATUS. I HAD A QUESTION WHEN I GOT TO ROOM AND TJ PROVIDED GREAT SERVICE OVER THE PHONE AND ANSWER ALL OF MY QUESTIONS PROFESSIONALLY AND INSURED ME THAT IT WAS HIS GOAL TO MAKE MY STAY GREAT AND TO CALL HIM IF I HAD ANY OTHER QUESTIONS. AS A BUSINESS OWNER HE IS THE TYPE OF PERSON I PLAN TO HIRE AS MY BUSINESS GROWS.
JEREMY CHECKED ME IN ON THE FIRST NIGHT. HE ACTUALLY CHECKED ME IN EARLIER THIS YR AND I FORGOT TO SUBMIT REVIEW AT THAT TIME. BUT HE HAS DISPLAYED THE SAME TYPE OF SERVICE AS TJ. BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY. I SAW HIM LEAVING ONE NIGHT ONCE HIS SHIFT HAD ENDED IN PARKING LOT. WHEN HE SAW ME GET OUT OF VEHICLE HE IMMEDIATELY CHANGED DIRECTIONS AND CAME TO MAKE SURE MY STAY WAS GOING GREAT. SHOOK MY HAND AND THANKED ME FOR STAYING. VERY IMPRESSIVE. I LATER LEARNED HE IS STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL. SHOCKED!!! CURIOUS TO KNOW HOW YOU GET THESE FOLKS TREATING THIS PLACE LIKE THEY ARE THE OWNERS??
I FIRST DEALT WITH JESSICA OVER THE PHONE. I WAS GONNA MISS CHECK OUT TIME AND NEEDED TO STAY ANOTHER NIGHT. SHE TOOK CARE OF ME AND JUST ASKED ME TO STOP BY FRONT DESK UPON RETURNING AND THEY WOULD HAVE MY PAPERWORK AND NEW KEY READY. I ALSO DEALT WITH HER FOR QUARTERS FOR LAUNDRY AND A FEW OTHER SIMILAR QUESTIONS. EACH TIME SHE PROVIDED THE OUTSTANDING SERVICE AS THE OTHERS DISPLAYED. SHE ALSO HAD A SMILE ON HER FACE AND MADE ME FEEL LIKE SHE WAS HAPPY TO HELP ME IN ANYWAY.
RAYLIN WAS AT FRONT DESK ONE EVENING WHEN I CAME IN FROM DINNER. SHE GREETED ME WITH A BIG SMILE AND SAID TO CALL HER IF I NEEDED ANYTHING. TOP NOTCH.
ERICA HELPED ME ALSO AND PROVIDED GREAT HELP IN THE BUSINESS ROOM.
I WAS UNABLE TO GET NAMES BUT THE CLEANING STAFF AND THE MAINTENANCE CREW SPOKE, SMILED, AND MADE ME FEEL AT HOME.
THANK YOU GREATLY FOR ANOTHER GREAT EXPERIENCE. I AM SURE I WILL BE EXPERIENCING ANOTHER ONE ON MY NEXT TRIP.

We stayed from January 4 thru Jan 11 th on the way to the Florida Keys.
We really loved Jessica on the Front desk and the Manager Theresa was always available and a great asset to the property.
The property was clean and the breakfasts varied daily.
We will definitely stop back at this hotel when we return to Dallas.

I HAVE STAYED AT THIS LOCATION NUMEROUS TIMES. IT IS ONE OF THE BEST. THE WORKOUT ROOM OVERLOOKS POOL AND THERE IS EVEN A HOT TUB THAT IS ON YR ROUND.

This was a great experience. We needed to extend our stay by one night and were able to do so with ease and did not have to change rooms. Pillows were so comfortable...want to find these same pillows! Thank you to the staff...everyone was very friendly and greeted you at all times.

I was only there for one night to visit a sick relative, but the hotel was in a very convenient location, the staff was really nice, the rooms were really nice and clean, the morning breakfast was really good. Overall I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express Saraland, and will stay there again on my next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alsie The Best Hotel & Staff in the Mobile area
I stay at this hotel everytime I visit the Mobile area. The staff is incredible. From check-in to check-out, everyone you speak with who works at this hotel make it one of the best stays anywhere. I travel a lot for my job and I can say the folks at this hotel make it a great stay. A great place and can't rave about this hotel enough. Sorry it has taken me so long to actually provide my review. Thanks!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rob1958 Trouble at Check in
Long day of travel. Ariived at 11 PM or so. Upon check in I was given a room on the top (4th) floor. Key did not work in the door. Went back to lobby and was given a different key. Went back to top floor. Key did not work. Went back to Lobby and got a 3rd key. Went back to room and key did not work. On duty manager followed me to the room and used his master key to open the door and found room to be occupied. Sleeping guest was not a happy person.
After that incident I was given another room and remainder of stay was fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MyNameRod Very comfortable and enjoyable
This is one of the best Holiday Inn Express that I have stayed at. From the moment I checked in I felt welcomed and secure. I did not even have to leave for dinner as the manager's reception food items was very fulfilling. The bed was very comfortable and I slept like a baby. I also enjoyed having DirecTV as I could watch the programs I love to watch just as if I was home. I recommend this location to anyone staying in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Captray Great place for w/e getaway
Because of hectic work schedules and almost overwhelming obligations (have elderly parent living with us also), it is difficult for my wife and I to truly get away and relax. We decided to take a weekend and although we live only 20 miles from this location, we chose it so if there were an emergency it we would be able to return home quickly. Must say this was the most enjoyable hotel stay we have ever experienced. From check-in to departure everything was great. Nice, clean rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful, best breakfast bar ever. (My wife said the iron you furnished was the best she had ever used, we got the model number and brand and ordered one for our home.) Will
definitely use for our getaway again and have already
recommended to others.

I liked the HIE at Saraland and declare it the best of the pack! The check-in and checkout crews were very gracious and made the stay there even brighter. My wife and I both found the mattresses to be very comfortable and the bedding made then especially comfortable. High marks for the housekeeping crew...the room was spotless. Yes we did enjoy the quietness of the room since we could not hear the outside traffic noises.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PB58 Stay at Holiday Inn Express at Saraland, Alabama (Near Mobile)
Room interiors are soothing and very comfortable. Great Front desk staff. Need to take care of equipment in room, like coffee maker and refrigerator. The coffee maker poured hot water not in the cup. The refrigerator was very noisy. Maintenance should take better care of the rooms.
Breakfast was quite good. I will be back to this hotel, most certainly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ed642Brooksville Attentive to my request
I travel the southeast U.S. for work on a regular basis. Occasionally I get delayed at a business meeting and have to check out late or extend my stay an unforeseen extra night. The hotel manager was very understandable in allowing me until 2:00 pm to know if I was going to check out or stay another night. Turns out I had to stay another night due to unfinished appointments. It was very comforting to know my luggage was safe in my room and I could have another night. Compliments to the staff for keeping this hotel in tip-top shape and clean! When back in Saraland, this will be where I stay. (I will be back in 30 days.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MeemeeandRaRa2 Reception
It was our Forty fourth wedding anniversary, and for some unknown reason, the staff rolled out a reception in the lobby for the guests. We enjoyed barbecue, meat balls, fruit, cheese, and a couple of neat dessert items. Along with the food, they also served sodas, water, and beer and wine which we could have done without. But all in all, a good reception, and we took it that we were celebrating a momentous occasion in our lives, and HI just made it more special.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harper40 Very nice place! After a very long long drive :)
We had a great experience at the hotel. Rooms were clean and very nicely decorated. Very comfy beds and nice and dark. The pool was nice we had some relax time in the courtyard.
The only small thing I was disappointed in and this could just be since the hotel was very very full of families and such the breakfast was pretty much empty when we came down. It was close to 830a and all the hot food was being switched out and we waited for a while but it never got filled. So we had coffee and a muffin and checked out. We could have used a bigger breakfast.
But the hotel itself was very nice. I definitely recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by benny Great staff attitude
The previous night I had experienced what may have been the worst hotel stay of a life time, thanks to a staff person's attitude. That was a Holiday Inn Express in Houston. Needless to say I had great reservations about staying at another Holiday Inn Express. I walked into the lobby at about 1:15AM, without reservations, and was greeted by a young man, Tarus Ivory, behind the desk, with a great smile and an attitude to please. What a difference a day and 450 miles make. Everything about our stay was excellent. Maybe Houston needs to send their employees to Saraland for training.
