My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown Mobile March 27th and 28th, checking out on the 29th. The room was nice and the staff treated us well. I had prepaid this room in January. My only charge was two days parking for $7.00 per day or $14.00. I had it put on my credit card and walked... More

We arrived during the evening rush hour on a Monday, and the traffic around the hotel was awful and getting in to find a parking space was a bit difficult. This isn't the fault of the hotel, some idiot parked on the street even though it says no parking after 6pm, and it caused a huge traffic jam. The hotel... More

I stayed here on a long-term project with a group of 16 people. The rooms are quite large compared to most hotels and I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it was despite living in a hotel room for 4 months! The building is older and at times there was a peculiar smell in the Lobby area but I believe... More

My wife and I stayed here as we were passing through on a quick getaway. The location is great and worked perfectly for us. The price was great as we booked through "the negotiator". The room was spacious, and the beds comfortable. The smell in the common areas was rather musty, so that was a negative. We were given 2... More

I booked a room at this location last weekend, February 21-22. I booked through Priceline and I was pleasantly surprised to see an IHG hotel selected---I have been both a bartender and Director of Sales at two different IHG hotel locations. I know the standards well. The occasion was a wedding, and upon entering the city of Mobile, I called... More
