Friendly people Clean room Great walk in shower Comfortable bed Fluffy pillow Good food for people in a hurry Very nice breakfast room lady Will stay there again if we ever are in the area. What we usually expect from a Holiday Inn! Been traveling and staying at Holiday Inns for over 30 years.

Super clean with nice decor. Very clean with nice staff. Great full hot breakfast. Wish I had had time for the fitness center. Stopped here when driving from NC to TX. Super comfy beds with plenty of good pillows. I will make this my place to stop when I have to make this drive.

Great stay with friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and it's also in a great location. Holiday Inn is close to plenty of restaurants and shopping areas as well as Walmart. Free breakfast, free WiFi, indoor pool, and fitness room makes this a great place for someone with children.

I always stay at HIs. And these had to be the best beds and linens of any HI I've stayed at. The rooms were quiet and clean. Easy access to restaurants, gas, and interstate. Disabled accessible for my mom. If traveling through AL again, would def stay here.

The hotel was nice. Stayed a few nights. The continental breakfast was great and had different items that other places I've stayed at didn't have as far as breakfast items. Room was clean and had the most comfortable bed I've slept on in years. The only thing I would recommend is that they somehow keep towels used and washed separately... More

We stopped while traveling from Dauphin Island back to IN. The room was huge and very clean. Friendly staff and great breakfast. The shower was heavenly! Didn't want to get out. We didn't swim, but the pool looked clean, just small. Workout room was in good shape, too. Overall, a nice stay!
