The $171 price tag for a king room with pet on a Tuesday night was not the best way to start, but this is a very nice hotel. Staff was courteous and friendly. Highlight was the room. Very spacious with a large bathroom and great shower. TV was 36" as opposed to the 32" at most hotels. Hotel is in... More

This hotel needs some updating and cleaning! Peeling paint and wallpaper, black ring on the bathroom floor. Bed linens smelled of bleach, though...always a good sign :) If I hadn't gotten it for dirt cheap on Priceline, I'd be really upset! Wouldn't stay there again.

Stayed here one night while on minor league baseball trip with my sons. This is an older hotel, but kept up very well. The rooms are at least average in size and everything was clean and in good working order. One of the highlights for us was the swimming pool – a great benefit of staying at an older hotel... More

Service was great, the hotel restaurant had good food and reasonable prices. The hotel, however, is old and is in need of modernization. Bedding could use some help too. Great service at check in. The area is great, convenient to everything, free parking. I would, however, stay here again

I agree with everyone's comments. This needs some work- has a slight musty Oder in the building. Not empresses at all. Just a place to rest your head.

Great location of this Holiday Inn in downtown, historical, fun Huntsville! It is within walking distance of the night-life district with fine to hipster dining, clubs, bars, etc. Great staff and clean, comfortable rooms with fast wi-fi!
