Nice size, clean room. Large bathroom. I enjoyed the gym after a long drive. Great selection of snacks and frozen meals in the vending area. Jackie was very friendly at check in. Easy access to the interstate.

The location is in a hill, at night very hard to find. Parking seems adequate but the lot is a bit dark. Upon entering, the young man at the reception desk was professional. Polite and friendly. Throughout my stay I watched him address the patrons by name. He made it a good stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and with...

We stayed only one night (10/14/2016 in Rm 421) so this review is based on the brevity of that stay. We arrived late and staff was AWESOME. She made my night by informing us that there was a late check out special going on so while hubs went to work I could sleep in till noon if it pleased me!...

I frequently visit the Birmingham area. Usually stay at the Holliday Inn Airport, but pass they are under major construction. THE HOLLIDAY INN EXPRESS IS JUST 5 MIN EAST OF THE AIRPORT. Wow words cannot describe how happy I was to stay here. Shannice was wonderful and fun to talk to during check in. No problems what so ever.

With a trailer light malfunction on our way from Dallas to Knoxville, we needed a pet-friendly hotel and found this Holiday Inn Express. Called and confirmed that they did indeed allow pets (hate that they charge an extra $35 for this accommodation). The parking lot was a bit tight for a turnaround with the trailer and it's up a steep...

We've stayed here a couple of times and found the rooms to be clean and up to standard. This particular hotel is pet friendly which is a plus for us. Be careful of getting a room too close to the outside door though as it can be loud with folks coming and going.

I was visiting Irondale, Alabama because my husband had to do testing for the University of Alabama hospital on the kidney transplant list. The phenomenal experience here can not compare to some of the other hotel chains I've stayed.

“Don't choose room 203, in case they haven't fixed the TV remote. Better to stay on first floor so you don't need to use the slow elevator.”
