“Reliable Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

This is my 3rd or 4th stay at the HGI on Governors Drive. The hotel remains in great shape, clean and without noticeable wear. The breakfast area is excellent - the fruit is especially fresh & the selection is great on all items. All of the staff was exceptionally friendly and cordial. I have stayed in 3 hotels in the Huntsville area & this is my favorite.

Tip: If you like a darker room ask for an odd numbered room to avoid the side that faces the other hotel parking lot & it's bright lights.

Room Tip: Rooms on the odd side are darker at night.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Our stay here was the first day of our vacation. We were planning on visiting the Space Center the next day before going on to Fl for a week. At about 3:00am, the fire alarm went off, very very loudly in our room. My kids woke up screaming at the top of their lungs. We went outside where someone had told us that this event had happened the night before also. When the fire trucks came and we were all allowed back in, the alarm was still going off. The night desk worker said it would be going off at least for another 15 minutes until the maintenance man got there to change the sensors. The fire trucks came at least two more times that we know of. My kids were begging me to sleep in the car because of all the commotion. We ended up having to check out at about 4:30 and going to another hotel. My kids nerves were shot though and could not go to sleep. It took at least 3-4 days of our vacation for their nerves to settle down and for them to be able to sleep without being afraid the alarm would wake them up. This was our second time staying at this hotel overall, but, we will not stay here again. We were given a refund on the room but that doesn't cover how the rest of our trip was affected. If this had happened the night before, they should have made sure it would not happen again.

All of the staff tried very hard to make our stay as relaxing as possible. Our trip had issues and they tried to do whatever they could to help keep us going.

Unusual and much appreciated.

The room was clean and well appointed. The hotel staff was friendly. They upgraded our room to a suite because our original room had not been cleaned by hotel staff yet (odd, since we checked in after 7:00 pm)----we were given a key and entered the room to discover a crumpled bed, full trash cans, etc. They were very apologetic and took immediate action to make sure we were satisfied. It was an oversight on their part, but in no way reflects negatively on my opionion of the stay. Things like this happen from time to time---they handled the situation very well and promptly, so no worries! It is literally within a stone's throw of the Huntsville Space Center. Overall, I was pleased with the stay.

Have stayed here a few times for business in Huntsville. Overall good value, clean, convenient location. Did have one problem with a late check in and no rooms were available to a couple of us due to A/C problems...(?). Regardless, had booked us into nearby Marriott. Clean, breakfast is OK, but overall decent place to stay while in the Huntsville area.
