It's always nerve wracking choosing a hotel in a town you've never visited. This hotel did not disappoint. Very clean, nice staff, super comfy beds. I've never slept so well in a hotel. I do suggest requesting a room that is not adjoined with another. We could hear the woman next door pretty early in the morning and very clearly....

I have never had a bad experience at a Holiday Inn Express until this one. The room they placed us was dirty...there was some unknown stain on the bench. Worse than they, however, was the fact that there was a dried up white SOMETHING that was on one of the beds, the floor, and the nightstand. Gross! We requested a...

We have stayed here several times on the way back from Gulf Shores, AL and this hotel never disappoints. The property has been totally remodeled since our last visit and looks great. The staff was friendly and breakfast was great. Our room was comfortable and the blackout curtains were fantastic! If you are traveling on I-65 it's just south of...

We picked this hotel from its great reviews and proximity to the ampetheater. The staff was very helpful and the room was clean. The hotel is very quiet and we slept great. They do offer a nicely prepped breakfast, but we had to get on the road and didn't have time to stay and eat. It is a very short...

We had a group of 150+ members held an event at this location and the staff worked with us very professionally. We had a minor request late Friday evening and nighttime desk clerk Brooke took care of it with a warm southern smile.

Not sure about the rest of you, but I check into a hotel because I need somewhere to sleep, which I couldn't do since the hotel is located RIGHT NEXT DOOR to an extremely loud concert venue. After driving 15 hours, I was exhausted and wanted to collapse into bed...but the bed was shaking from the bass beat booming at...

Dear ggddizzy, We are so sorry that you were not able to get the rest you were so looking forward to after such a long drive. While we are located near Oak Mountain Amphitheater, the concerts are only 1 or 2 times a month and we honestly do not receive complaints about noise-we actually get more compliments how our guest...

It is the typical USA hotel to stay one nigh, or two maximum. Good installations, near to a hooters and a Arby's. Nothing amazing or above than others, but is a nice place if you're in a trip around the region knowing the place. Breakfast: is the same than others.

We just stayed overnight on our way to Destin, but were very pleased with our stay. Nice lobby, quick check-in, and clean, spacious room. The breakfast was simple, but had some good choices and was just what we needed before getting back on the road. The indoor pool was minimal, and slippery, but adequate for some relaxing. No hot tub....

My daughter and I came here for a concert and the Holiday Inn Express could not have been in a better spot. The Ozark amphitheater was walking distance from the hotel, and Chic-fil-a was also walking distance. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is not the best I have had in a hotel breakfast but it did its job. The...

VERY clean!! VERY friendly!! Great stay!! Just a quick stop on our way to Orange Beach - but VERY nice. We had a terrible experience just down the road at Quality Inn.
