People beware!! I grew up in Hts and have been to this Holiday Inn for many occations over the years. In May I checked into the now Holiday Inn Express and as the early person said the halls are very dark. I fell on a lot of glass from broken light bulbs on the hall floor. I called the front...

We stayed in this hotel for one night. It is not like any Holiday Inn express I have ever been in. It is a very old hotel remodeled and is dark and dank. Poorly remodeled if you like 80's colors go for it. I knew we were in trouble when we were driving in and drove past a jail and... More

My wife, son and I traveled to Huntsville to see our granddaughter/son's daughter for her Birthday the weekend of Oct 9-12, 2009. We stayed at this HI express because it was close to our grandchilds other grandparents. We had a great stay with her, her mother and family. The hotel we chose was a very good choice for our weekend.... More

Thanks to the airlines, what was supposed to be a one day there-and-back business trip was extended overnight. We called the Holiday Inn Express from the airport and within 20 minutes the courtesy van arrived. From the minute we got into the van we were shown the utmost consideration and hospitality. Jeff from the hotel found out our situation and... More

I am currently a guest in this HI Express. My guess is it's an older hotel that's been renovated to standard HI Express fare. The room is a non smoking room, and smells clean and fresh, and my room was already cooling when I arrived. The air conditioner fan runs constantly, providing the great white noise all night long that... More

I had to stay here two nights for a business trip. I was not impressed. I've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express Hotels that were brand new or nearly new, so after checking in to this one, I was a little disappointed. It seemed OLD. It looked like it used to be two hotels that they remodeled into one maybe?... More

It is funny, because I almost wrote my review before my stay was over, but I thought, no, I should wait. I am glad I did. There is not anything that is entirely unacceptable here and when I say "nothing special" it is not that I am looking for something grand, especially at the price, but there should be some... More

Positives: Rooms were clean. Beds were comfy and had extra pillows. Its next to Churches Chicken (would not recommend), and there is a Chinese restaurant across the street. US Space and Rocket Center is about 5 minutes away. Awesome breakfast! Omelets, biscuits and gravy, waffles….. Negatives: Our room was in a building across from the lobby. The outside doors to...

This isn't the nicest hotel I've stayed at within this price range (but the only one in Huntsville), but I can't really think of any reason not to stay here. This is a very good hotel. The free breakfast is fantastic, with omelets and such. It's in a decent location close to restaurants. The pool is very pretty, but heavily... More

I stay here on and off and this hotel provides a good value. Surprised at the updated and comfy beds. Get a room facing pool = trees and courtyard feeling, not parking lot and cars. Breakfast has good choices although the offerings do not change on a daily or weekly basis. Also surprised at the daily happy hour - a... More
