Nice clean hotel. Awesome staff. Very friendly and professional. Typical HIE breakfast. I am a business traveler and when I get done at the end of day I like to come back and watch TV. Not even one HD station. Makes watching a little annoying especially sports. It's 2016, I don't understand.

This is a lower-end HIE. Room was okay, except for a dirty phone. Other areas in the hotel had some walls that looked grungy. There is no lobby, which is kind of weird. Breakfast was nothing special. Best part of my stay was the good cinnamon rolls.

My stay was great, the clerk who checked me in was very welcoming. He offered dining suggestions with detailed directions and treated me like a valued customer, even though he was busy. The breakfast (which is why I stay at Holiday Inn Express) was well stocked and carefully attended to. My room clean and the bed was comfortable. This Holiday... More

HIE Alcoa is in a great location, just a mile south of the airport, near the Texas Roadhouse. It's a little cumbersome to get in and out of, but that's a minor quibble. While all the rooms are supposedly non-smoking, they initially stuck me in room 327, one of the few rooms that does NOT have a no-smoking symbol on... More

I recently stayed at this property while in the area on business. The room was spotlessly clean, the front desk staff was very pleasant, the beds were firm and felt newer. The breakfast area, while small, was very clean. The room was quiet and I had a good night's rest. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We stayed in a queen suite, and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was good. Wifi was fast. But there are no outlets specifically designed for charging electronics, and the available outlets are located far from the desk and bed.

Very nice clean place, comfortable bed. Even though we were in the room right next to the breakfast area, it was quiet. A/C didn't sound like a train either. Breakfast was more than enough. My only improvement would be they could use stainless steel pans to hold the hot food under the warming lights. The plastic trays looked old and... More

We went to this hotel because they had a pool and we wanted to swim as we celebrated our anniversary. Well that didn't happen. The pool was so cold that my husband wouldn't even get in it.
