Arrived without a reservation on a Saturday thanks to a broken down car on our way to vacation. I can't remember the name of the young man who was working the front desk, but he made a few exceptions for us that we deeply appreciated. We slept well and everyone enjoyed the nice, full breakfast the next morning. Thanks to...

We've ways stayed at Holiday Inns but this is by far one of the cleanest hotels I've ever slept in! The staff greeted us (checking in and out) with smiles and well wishes. The hotel has just undergone renovations so perhaps that's the reason behind the cleanliness but that being said, it is clean! LoL did ya get that it's...

We so appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and other travelers! This is the type of review that makes our day! Cleanliness is, of course, top priority!

We had two rooms and they were clean. The breakfast was also nice. The pool, kinda chilly, but well worth getting in. Recommend for anyone heading into Fort Payne. And the front desk team are nice, too.

Only stayed 1 night. It was clean and newly renovated. We booked king bed, mattress was firm. Bathroom lighted nicely. We had plenty of room, microwave, refrig, keurig coffee maker. Not the best breakfast I've ever had but not bad. There were plenty of options from oatmeal to cereal, eggs, gravy, biscuits, sausage, boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit, pancakes, pastries,...

The front desk folks were extremely nice. A great breakfast. However, I needed to iron some clothes for my morning meeting and the iron hanger was bolted to the ironing board. Made it very difficult to use. Almost impossible.

I stayed the evening of January 19th and upon entering the bathroom, late that evening, I noticed that it had not been flushed, as toilet paper and urine were overtly evident in the toilet bowl.

We are so sorry you had this experience. I assure you this is not standard for our hotel. We don't generally have many trucks in our lot but we can certainly make an effort to have them park towards the back of the lot. Thank you for the feedback. Sincerely, Julie Mewes General Manager

Stayed here 3 nights over Christmas week while visiting family. Was very clean and rooms were recently remodeled and very quiet. Breakfast onsite was convenient with everyone waking at different times we didnt have to wait for sleeping teens to get moving before eating. Keurig in room. Will stay there again.

This is not the HIA Express I know. The facility has been renovated and the basic appearance is nice. The counter personnel are totally helpful. But, if staying in the handicap room bring a flashlight, or a torch - the lighting in the bathroom is totally insufficient. They do not change the towels, which are hard and scratch, each day...
