Guest Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 57 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location - close to Univ Was visiting the University of Alabama. Last time we came we stayed at a Marriott property and did not enjoy the stay. We had IHG points so I found this property. Loved the location, very handy to the campus and right by shopping and restaurants. Front desk recommended a great Mexican place to eat. Thank you for the directions and recommendations. We tend to stay at places with free breakfast, and I would have to say that this one was one of the best. Food was very fresh and area very clean. The dining area was a great size with lots of seating. Some other locations are very cramped and people are on top of each other. This one is very spacious and felt homey. The only thing I would suggest is having lamps on bedside tables with plugs for phones. Other locations have this and it is very handy. I had to plug in behind the bed side table so it was not easy to reach. Also, we stayed at IHG location recently that had ceiling fans and I really think that is a great feature so you don't have to run the heat or AC. If our daughter goes to Alabama I see this being our hotel to stay at for the next 4 years when we come to visit. February 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly and affordable We loved our stay at Holiday Inn. The water was hot, the linens and towels were clean. The room and bathroom were clean. The only area for improvement was the fake eggs at breakfast and the beds were too high to sit on comfortably (but were awesome to sleep in). February 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Room, Service Checked in around 6pm. The room was right next to elevators. Asked front desk to see if there is any other room can be switched as i had bad experience in the room right next to elevators. Was told that there was no room available and the only room available was at ~$150 so they can't switch me to that! What surprised me more was the shower drain was plugged in this room. By the time i found out close to late night, i really do not want to bother them to address it. As usual, not having a good sleep due to the noise from elevator and very loud air conditioner sound. I hope the front desk can be more flexible to listen to customer. February 10, 2014
