“Disappointed”
Reviewed 22 May 2005

This is not what I would expect from a Holiday Inn. There were a number of people waiting to check in, when a guest cut the line to check out and the desk staff helped him before all of us in line. The hotel is old and the hallway to my room was dark. My socks turned dark from walking on the carpet without my shoes. The high speed internet in my room did not work and the sound on my TV was distorted. This was a hotel where I locked the door to my room and did not venture out again that evening. It was an overnight stay only, as I had to catch an early morning flight out of BHM; I would have moved elsewhere if I had to stay any more nights.

Stayed May 2005

I used to stay at this hotel on a regular basis with my job as a flight attendant. We were advised by the front desk not to leave the hotel after dark. The hotel didnt have hot running water for 2 weeks. And once I found blood on one of my towels in the bathroom. There are plenty of other hotels in BHM that are much better and resonably priced. Stay away from this one. After many many complaints we were moved to the much nicer Shereton downtown....

The room was fine, about what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn. Staff was marginally friendly. Price was reasonable at $75 online, though my high speed internet didn't work. I didn't complain, since I carry a wireless internet card, so I can't say whether they would have fixed it or moved me. Everything was clean, though the hotel is starting to show some signs of age. What wasn't so great was the road noise. Yes, it's nearby an airport, but it's the 2 highways that produced the incessant whines and roars that had me up past my bedtime for an early flight. I can't tell you how many trucks I heard roaring by from 10 to 12:30 (when I finally fell asleep). Otherwise, no real complaints, and very convenient to the airport with a shuttle bus.

We stayed here August 2003. This was a great place to stay at an affordable price. The room was clean, the downstairs restaurant had excellent food, and the staff was friendly. Overall, we had a great experience. I would highly recommend this place.
