“AVOID!”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

This is NOT a Holiday Inn anymore.........We'd stayed here previously when it was a Holiday Inn; it was clean, comfortable, we had a executive suite (larger room with living area).....It had great room service, a great breakfast buffet or order off the menu, a restaurant open for dinner......not a 5star but a very nice comfortable hotel.

We stayed here the first week of May 2012......and never again. There were less than five vehicles in the parking lot each night; that's how unoccupied the hotel was. The room was clean or seemed to be but small, dingy, peeling wallpaper, the exterior of our room (we had an outside entry door) was nasty looking..........it looked like we were going into the ghettos.
On our third night there, I noticed the floor (carpet) was wet in front of the AC unit. I phoned the desk and was told I'll leave them a note about it. I went by the front desk and told the girl on duty the next morning before we left to visit family. We came by after lunch that day...maintenance was there. He said he had to put a hole in the drip pan of the AC unit so it would drain. That night the floor was wetter........

The following day I made reservations for the remainder of our stay at another hotel and we moved out......as we'd paid the weekly rate.......we left without telling anyone. It wasnt like they needed the room for other guests.

As far as customer service, I had good and bad experiences with the desk staff. The one who checked us in on April 30 was cold and unpleasant........there was another lady on during the week who was very pleasant (I'd also spoke to her on the phone before our trip). The one housekeeper we saw on Tuesday morning (May 1) was very nice also.

We heard hearsay that Best Western is going to purchase this hotel and renovate it,. My advice is to bulldoze the building and start over from scratch.

Room Tip: Stay at a different hotel. The Marriott Shoals is super!!

My group started using this hotel on NewYears eve 2011. We have a group which meets every month and we are a very large group so it is sometimes hard to find a place where we have the room we need and the service we also need.

My group has been back to The Emerald River Hotel one othere time and we are coming back again. We have found that they are always Professional and treat us all with the utmost respect.
The rooms are always clean and ready when we arive. Breakfast is always hot. The ladies who work the food area do a great job.
In fact the entire staff are out standing and we will all be back again.
Thank you Emerald River Management for doing such a great job.

This hotel is nothing spectacular. Think of your average hotel and this is it. The front desk was very friendly and accomodating. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room was clean though dated. On the first morning only had warm water. I suppose it was because the hotel was completely booked. The next morning the water was fine. The pool and jacuzzi were out of service. The breakfast was nothing to rave about, but edible. Their ad claims a bar is on site but it's not. I guess they used to have one but you now have to go to the business next door. Definitely not a luzury hotel but would recommend it for a night or two.

Stayed here while traveling. Slightly older hotel, but the room was clean and the breakfast was good. Price average of those of slightly higher caliber. Hot breakfast was good. Parking area a little questionable around back for a woman traveling alone. Noisy "soldiers and fisherman" partying a bit much, but overall not bad.

5 stars due to price to quality of stay received. Things I liked for the price:

special reduced rate before tax of $52 helped with review evaluation. Surprised breakfast with choice of eggssausage/biscuts/make your own waffle/cereal/oj/apple juice/danish/or coffee was included with the regular hotel rate.

A friendly staff from hotel desk to maids.

hot tub was indoors-clean and hot and would hold probable 20 people.

wi fi from rooms free

free coffee available in lobby all day. (caffeine addict)

Things to improve on:with minimum increased cost per guest at hotel: 1. add a tv on both sides of wall next to hot tub to allow tv viewing in tub or from chairs in lobby. 2. add a tv on wall of eating area to allow viewing while eating breakfast.

Room Tip: expedia a last minute $ (2 weeks before rate)

Despite the bad reviews we did not have much money so we tried this hotel.-It was clean! It did not have a bad smell. And I am very sensitive to smells like mold, dust, and smoke. And we could park the car right outside the room. I felt safe(somehotel parking lots are just plain creepy). We got a fishermans discount. The lobby was hot and stuffy in mid day, but the who sleeps in the lobby? We did not try breakfast there so I can't comment on that. And the bar was across lobby from our room and we never heard anything from it. The pool was out of order, but they gave us a discount for that! -They hunted us down and gave us our discount money back after we had already paid, just because the pool was not usable that week. I thought the bed was comfortable and that is a lot coming from me. Where else could you stay that is clean and that inexpensive!?
