After quick check in, I was sent to a smoky room, despite being a platinum IHG member and having had non-smoking on my profile forever. (I didn't know that hotels still allowed smoking in any rooms!) They quickly reassigned me to a room that hadn't been smoked, so fixed the problem, but sort of a hassle at 11 PM when... More

Just a really nice hotel all around. Just stayed here for the rocket city marathon and had a really good time. Very clean and quiet hotel. The restaurant was very good and very reasonable. The rooms were very large and the bed was very comfortable after running 26.2 miles. Had no problems and would stay here again.

This hotel has nice accommodations and a nice pool, but we love to come to hear the live bands. In a no smoking night club atmosphere, with great Bands like Peter & the Wolf and the Emily Joseph Band, this Holiday Inn and Hopper's Bar & Grill team up to provide an excellent place for a weekend get-away.

I enjoyed my stay at this Holiday Inn. It was a bit outdated, but there was a indoor/outdoor pool (heated during the winter!) with an indoor jacuzzi, along with a restaurant and bar on the first floor. The restaurant/bar, Hopper's, had solid food and something was always going on every night I stayed (kareoke, live band). I would stay here... More

This is a typical Holiday Inn. Unfortunately that comes with the fact that it is rather old fashioned and additionally outdated - needs renovation. My experience during the last years: The HE Expresses are generally in better shape, offer free breakfast and have better rates. Hotel had extremely loud and old ac in room and in the hallway.

I was in town for business at NASA Marshall. I selected this property because it was convenient to where I needed to go and it was reasonably priced. I was not disappointed. The property was an easy 5 minute drive to where I needed to go, but far enough to avoid heavy congestion. Very convenient to several areas near the... More

How can housekeeping miss a blood stain this big on bed skirt at head of the bed? I travel a lot sometimes more in hotels in a year than home. Small details can be huge. Property in general very nice but this small detail negates all that. First towel I picked up still had dirt stains on it. Adjacent mall... More

i have stayed here a couple of time for business. No free breakfast, but your typical hotel service. Free Wifi. One thing is they have a party atmosphere on Friday and Saturday nights. Can't really speak much about it, but alot of people rock it out in the bar / restaurant area of the hotel some evenings.
