This was our second time to stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Opelika, AL. It's a convenient stop on our 900 mile trip to visit family in S.C., whether coming or going. The property is fairly new and well maintained. The staff are all friendly and welcoming. A recent change is instead of the usual snack and bottle of...

I stayed here in late March. When I checked in, the gentleman at the desk said I didn't have a reservation. I said "I know you're kidding, but I've just driven eight hours and would just like to check in, please." He passed over a form for me to sign for extra charges, and then held out my room key....

Stayed 3nights while working in the area. Lovely hotel, nice & new. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. Check in was quick, our platinum status was recognized, and got 500 bonus points for our first stay at this hotel. Room was large, and very comfortable.

We stayed here on our way to Austin. It was conveniently located right off the highway and near a huge shopping center that had everything you may need. The hotel itself was clean, bright, friendly, and the staff was GREAT. Always smiling, always laughing. I was traveling with a cat, and they accommodated us perfectly.
