***Pay absolutely NO attention to any bad reviews---we have stayed hundreds of nights in hotels and this is truly the BEST HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS in which we have stayed...and let me tell you why.
We stayed here a full week in May and every single person at this location could not have been kinder to us. We had the two queen bed and sofa suite and it was so comfortable---and large for this sort of Holiday Inn. Our favorite lady is Debra at the front desk, and we had fallen in love with Debra by the time we had to go home! She truly cares about the guests here. The breakfast is perfect and offers so much food, with some items changing daily. I believe that the lady who oversees the breakfast is named Connie and she was delightful. This is the most comfortable dining room too---also with a large screen TV and leather sofa and chairs, with any magazine that you could want. I believe that coffee and tea are offered all day as well. Plenty of high chairs for little ones...who are especially welcomed here it seems :)
The gym is functional for a work out, and the pool and umbrellas are just wonderful. We enjoyed swimming, and it is such a peaceful area around the pool.
We truly could NOT find a single thing wrong with this hotel---this is how a hotel should operate!!! We felt safe, comfortable, well-fed and appreciated for our business----we are great fans of Holiday Inn (IG I believe) properties again. Debra and the staff have everything to do with this.
A note about the area--there is a terrific (and so friendly) ROSS STORE across the street from the hotel, and other stores there too. There are several restaurants right in the area, and two really good gas stations within two blocks, a Walgreen's about a quarter mile away, and a beautiful PUBLIX store right across the street. You cannot go wrong with this location. We just fell in love with Alabama and everyone who we met. We had not been to Alabama in over ten years. Also--we noted that this is the CLEANEST STATE that we have ever visited. Love the people :)
