“SLEEP UNDER THE HIGHWAY INSTEAD”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

The peep hole on my room door was reversed, allowing passersby to look into my room...very odd indeed. If you have ever slept under a freeway underpass, this experience is similar with the exception of the brown paper bag of booze. Recommend bringing ear plugs if you must stay here. Shower could have used some bleach. Comfortable bed, if that helps.

Room Tip: I was on the 7th floor and the highway noise was quite loud. Bring ear plugs, hand cleaner and show...

The front desk staff was very pleasant and quick to get extra towels that I requested. HOWEVER, do not go to the bar thinking you will get any service from the extremely rude girls working behind the counter. We went in trying to get something to eat and sat at a table for 10 minutes without any service. We then went directly to the bar and stood in front of them for another 5 minutes without them even looking at us or acknowleding we were there. They were to busy flirting with the men buying drinks to notice two hungry travelers. An elderly gentlemen told us he waited for 10 minutes to get a menu and then couldn't get anyone to take his order. He left and we did too. We went across the street to get dinner and it's not a very good part of town. We were approached for money by two different people. So I advise anyone staying here to get dinner before you check in. They gave us a handicap room for some reason, so I can't comment on the size of the other rooms, but ours was very large, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel does show signs of aging, but it was not in disrepair. I would stay there again for the price I paid with priceline, but I wouldn't pay the full price due to the lack of service and the part of town it is in.

The Holiday Inn by the airport in Birmingham, AL is not one that you will remember for being good or bad. The hotel is simple and easy for a business traveller. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly everything was good - not great - good. Will I stay there again? Yes.

Ice machine did not work on our floor. Vending machines are next to the front desk, very inconvenient to travel all the way downstairs for a juice or soda. The pillows are insanely small. There is a dip in the mattress. The upside to this hotel is that it is conveniently located next to the events we are attending this weekend.

We have stayed at this hotel several times when flying out of Birmingham, but did not know about the 'stay, park & fly' until this trip. It was great! So much less hassle than finding a car park. We stayed Saturday night then took the hotels airport limo. Upon return the limo picked us up at the terminal and returned us to our car. It was that simple!!

The hotel is OK but only if you can get a room on the west side away from the interstate. Otherwise, it's so noisy that you can hardly talk to each other. We tried the fan on the a/c but even that didn't drown out the traffic noise. We have stayed here many times and some things have changed for the better. The food is better but the service is still slow. I think because they are understaffed. One thing hasn't changed: loud TV in the restaurant area. This detracts from the already-poor atmosphere in the restaurant. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Do not accept a room on the interstate (east) side
