In Mobile on business after the hurricane and there weren't a lot of rooms available in the area. Fortunately I found one.
I am not so sure that this place started out as a Holiday Inn. It has the feel that it was a Ramada or something else for YEARS before it became what it is today: A slightly old; a bit run down; retrofitted establishment. The staff was nice and friendly, but between some of the stains on the walls, stained carpet, old caulk around the windows, and a "restaurant" that appears to be set up every morning in a room that might have been a meeting and/or storage room at one time (lots of extension cords to power the hot plates) the place felt worn out.
Breakfast was much better than other breakfasts that I've had at dozens of other hotels. The eggs were real and not powdered. The bacon was THICK (Yummy). It felt like a genuine breakfast, and not somethiing that they just added water to and called it breakfast.
The humidity: I am not so convinced that this place has a high humidity level inside just because it is a few miles from water. The air inside felt musty. And once when I was in my room I turned off the A/C unit so that I could speak on the phone, and within a minute or two every piece of glass in the room was covered with fog (mirrors, TV, my glasses). I think that this place has issues!!!!
I'd stay there again definately. The rooms were of appropriate size, everyone was nice, and everything worked. But I would approach my stay with eyes wide open knowing "it is what it is".
