Holiday Inn Express Birmingham/Inverness
Ranked #41 of 80 Hotels in Birmingham
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Room was clean. Tub drain was not the most effective. Good location. Breakfast was fabulous. Pool area major disappointment. Whirlpool broken completely and pool was not heated. According to the sign on the door, the hottub had been broken for a month. Since we selected that hotel for the use of an indoor pool, we were a bit frustrated, especially since we were consistently told that they would turn the heater on. However, in 3 days, it was just as frigid at the end of our stay as the beginning. It was obvious that the pool area wasn't top priority as during out stay the same trash the people left behind stayed until I cleaned it up, and there was water damage on the ceiling and walls by the windows.

We stayed here while passing through from Dallas to Charlotte, and again on our return trip. The hotel is a good value for the price. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The breakfast was nothing special, but a good start to the day. We would stay here again...

Hotel was in a good location near food, fuel and shopping, however, none within walking distance. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and tucked into a culdesac, shielded from road noise. Breakfast area was large and breakfast was good. I would recommend this hotel for the money.

My cousin and I were only in town for the night for a show but the stay was wonderful. Tiffany at the Front Desk was great! She got us checked in quickly and even gave us a great recommendation and directions for a lounge to visit after the show. The room was nice and clean and comfortable. We didn't want to get out of the bed the next morning. The location was about 15 mins from downtown and was surrounded by plenty of food and other stores. I would definitely use this hotel for next visits to Birmingham.

We stopped there on Christmas evening. The hotel was mostly empty so very quiet. The room was a nice size, clean and a fair price. Would stop here again. Staff was friendly. Quick checking and check out.

I have stayed in three other Hotels in the Birmingham area, this one is my choice. The Holiday Inn Express, Irondale is a close second. The room was clean with nice beds. Nice pool area was well kept. The staff was friendly. The hotel is In a very busy area hard to get to places, good thing lots of stores near by. The breakfast could be a bit better.

I would say that the room was nice enough. It was 99% clean. The important parts were very clean. Unfortunately, they failed to vacuum underneath the TV stand & left dry cereal pieces there. Still, the bed was clean & comfy. The bathroom was clean & the shower was great. We left at 6am and grabbed their free breakfast. My son loved their pancake maker. Overall, the breakfast consisted of standard fare but it was well stocked & clean. We will be staying here again in the future.
