Hotel was in a very good location (almost too good) and efforts have been made to remodel and update the interior (exterior still looks very mid-1970's). Beds were very comfortable, a definite plus. Bathrooms were very small and the door wouldn't even open all the way because the commode got in the way. Older model televisions (not flat screens) and... More

$47.00 on Priceline. The hotel is old and not updated. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Pet friendly and still has smoking rooms available.

Suggest guests looking for best rates go online at Holiday Inn website and choose advance purchase rate to gaurantee location and best available rate. Priceline is not always accessible to our hotel and you don't know which hotel you will be in until you have purchased on non/cancel reservation. PS. We are a solid 3 star hotel. More

i was looking forward to staying at this property considering the problems we have had in the past with huntsville hotels. this one was better but far from justifying the rates. while taking a shower, the water cycles from freezing cold to scalding hot. at first i thought it may be an issue of "peak demand". my shower at 1330...

Since the dates of this stay we have upgraded and expanded the bandwidth or our internet service to prevent interuptions in service to our guest. HI speed wireless service is available at no charge. The issue related to the fluctuation of water temperature was due to a faulty circulation pump which has been replaced. More

I booked my room here solely based on the rate through Hotwire.com and its location in "downtown Huntsville." I was pleasantly surprised by this one. This is the oldest or among the oldest hotels in downtown Huntsville, but don't let deceive you. It has been wonderfully maintained and was very pleasant down to the details. Remember, this is a full... More

This Holiday Inn was trying to be a little too upscale for its location. My favorite part was having the park across the street to walk, feed the funky colored ducks or just watch the happy children. The service in the hotel was great, but we were disappointed to have to pay extra for a mini-frig & microwave. Those are... More

I had booked a room online for one night and when I arrived to check in, I had been upgraded to a suite w/ free breakfastand a gift certificate for the restaurant. The room was very clean, plenty of towels, etc. When my friends arrived, we were allowed to keep the same room for another night and were allowed to... More

I have stayed here many times. This was a Hilton and the only hotel in the area (downtown) until the New finer Embassy Suites came in. It is now a Holiday Inn and they have refurbished recently and it is still a very good value. Since they have so many rooms and are the only ones in the area, you... More

I had previously stayed at the Embassy which is a newer downtown hotel but chose the Holiday Inn on this trip because I booked late and Embassy was full. I've experienced both hotels and next time I'll come back to the Holiday Inn. The Embassy was newer and the staff was ok but at the Holiday Inn I found the... More

I was definitely underwhelmed by the Holiday Inn in Huntsville, especially compared to some of the nicer holiday inns I've stayed at on business. The service is average but somewhat unresponsive. More unfortunate, the rooms are definitely outdated and showing it: The ceiling has spots, paint is chipped off the wall, the shower and sink area has cracks, and the... More
