We stopped here to spend a night after touring various sites along our long drive to Florida. Great little stop for one night. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was typical except the attendant Pam there at breakfast was super friendly, helpful, and fun. Cheery breakfast because of her. Only complaint is they seemed to have a low on toilet... More

Updated room and clean environment are really important and this place exceeded my expectations. The only possibly negative was that there was only one staff member at the desk so check in took a little longer due to other guests and the telephone ringing. The staff member was friendly and worked hard to please everyone, so that was pleasant.

We stayed for 1 night during a 2 week visit to the US. This was definitely the friendliest welcome we had during the whole holiday! What nice people - thank you all of you!

The staff at this hotel is the friendliest group of people. Kenya at the front desk during the day assisted us with weather conditions, as a tornado had passed through the area, and advised on traveling to Dothan, AL. The rooms are large, and ours overlooked the swimming pool. Pam, the breakfast attendant, was super cheery and friendly and made... More

Spent a night here and were impressed with the property. The room was big and comfortable. Pam at the breakfast area is a trip. She keeps a conversation going and is really friendly. The location of the hotel is convenient and also close to places to eat.

I have found that Holiday Inn Express is usually a good bet as this iteration is fairly new and the franchisees haven't had time to let them deteriorate. This location is in a strip of fast food joints, and older Motels. Phenix City appears to be the poor side of the state line. I was worried when I saw the... More

This hotel is an unexpected gem in an area that is pretty tired looking about 11 miles from Fort Benning. The nice thing was that the clerk placed me in a room overlooking the pool and the pool area is surrounded by tall native plants that obscure a pretty ugly surrounding area. Ugly is an understatement for the surrounding area... More

I stayed here and at first the LG tv in my room didn't work with my PS3. You can imagine the frustration. Well that's when the maintenance guy John came to the rescue. He gave me a magnavox tv,and it worked perfectly. He was very helpful and took the extra time to help me figure out the problem.

The lobby and breakfast area are beautifully decorated. The beds were comfortable and warm on a chilly evening. We choose to stay with the Holiday Inn Corporation because each experience has been a positive one and this was as well. Toni at the front desk is absolutely terrific, very pleasant, informative, and helpful! Thanks for a great stay!
