My husband and I stayed here one night on our way back from Gulf Shores to the Nashville Airport. The beds were comfortable, it was quite and we got a good nights sleep. We found it to be clean, although the hallways could be vacuumed more often. They needed vacuuming when we arrived and the next day when we left... More

Even though we didn't need the handicapped room, that was all that was left when we arrived. It was a very clean room that had all the usual offerings....mini-fridge, microwave, iron & board, coffee pot. The problem was regarding the bathroom. There is absolutely no shelf/storage/sink counter space. There are plenty of hooks, but many are up high....a problem for... More

We stay here when doing business in the area. Good typical Holiday Inn express has an indoor pool and gym. Fresh breakfast in a nice dining room which feels like someone's home. Joyce at the front desk feels like family always a warm and kind welcome from her. Staff here always very friendly and full of southern hospitality. Cracker Barrel... More

My husband and I stayed here as a halfway point from Florida and our home. We normally stay in 5 star hotels but for this trip we just needed a place to crash then get on the road again. From the moment we entered until we left we were continually impressed. The front desk staff were great! Very welcoming. When... More

I should start by saying that this review is long overdue. I grew up in Cullman, Alabama, and for the past five years, whenever we come home for a visit, this hotel is where we stay. Cullman is a small, warm, friendly town and the customer service at this hotel is top notch. I really like to stay in a... More

I enjoyed reading this review so much - not just because of the kind words, but mostly because we work hard to provide this home-town, welcoming kind of atmosphere for our guests. Guest feedback is so very important because it can show us where our weaknesses lie. However, it is also very nice to hear that our staff is providing... More

This Holiday Inn Express has a very cozy feel to it. It might have been due to the many decorations in the lobby or the low lighting in the hallways but, this hotel is not like most bright and cold Holiday Inn Expresses. The best part of my stay was the breakfast which was hot and plentiful.

This was a very clean, spacious, beautiful room. Very quiet! Breakfast was fabulous! Hot foods were deliciiously hot, cinnamon rolls fabulous. Pool nice. But, the ultimate enjoyment was the awesome shower! The shower head was just a regular head, but the water pressure was terrific! It felt like tiny hands massaging my head!

We were pleased with the hotel. We were warmly greeted and our room was clean and well appointed. The breakfast was good and staff were friendly and eager to serve. The hotel is new enough not to be on some GPS systems.
