This is an OK hotel. Our experience was not as good as reviews indicated, but the redeeming factor was that the bed was comfortable. Room was not particularly clean. A few small annoyances were that the room darkening shade was broken so would not cover bottom 12” of window, and there was only one coffee cup. Again, small negatives but reflected on our stay. The biggest issue is that the room lighting is terrible. True that we were only there to sleep, but the lighting is glaring - a softer white bulb selection would be more conducive to relaxation. We only interacted with one staff member at checkin, whose name we did not get (sorry), but she was pleasant and all went smoothly. The breakfast attendant was equally helpful and upbeat. The breakfast, however, was NOT hot and disappointing. We would probably not stay here again, but there may not be many other options in the Pelham area.

I rarely give 5 stars to a hotel, but I could not give less to this one. Everything was Great. Clean comfortable rooms, Great staff and a good breakfast into the bargain. There is a very nice Mexican restaurant just a 2 minute walk away. I highly recommend to my fellow travelers!!!

While checking in with my 93 year old Mother, both Cody & Hailey went out of their way to find a stool so Mom wouldn’t have trouble getting into the bed. This thoughtfulness made our visit so much more comfortable. The entire staff at this location is very friendly and helpful.

Found this hotel on an unscheduled stay, was delayed with car trouble while passing through town. Hotel was delightful! Easy check in and out, Staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Hotel was very clean and well cared for. Rooms were a nice size and comfortable. The breakfast was better than most hotel breakfasts. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

We spent one night here. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Diane in the breakfast bar was very nice to chat to. I don't know the names of the 2 gentlemen who checked us in but they were both great. The room was much better than I expected. It was very clean, the bed and pillows very comfortable, the bathroom was great. Nice wide entrance to the room and the bathroom. Our room overlooked the Oak State Park amphitheatre parking lot so it was nice and quiet. The lighting in the room was exceptional with two lights between the queen beds and four reading lights mounted on the headboards. Very nice desk chair and an occasional chair with ottoman. The only thing was the bathroom fan was very loud. Breakfast was good with some really nice scrambled eggs. There were nice biscuits and there were sausage patties but I missed bacon. Lots of other choices as well. The pool and exercise room is in a separate building with a nice lounge area and gas fireplace outside. There were also 2 gas BBQ's there! I would definitely return to this property!

As a business traveler, I appreciate speedy check-in and quick access to internet. This delivers, and its small gym is efficient for a nice morning wake-up walk. The bed is huge and bathroom is spacious. The gem of the place, though, is Diane. She is the heartbeat of the breakfast room and she keeps things orderly, answers questions, and will chat about anything under the sun. It's like having your mom get you ready for the day. She is what makes this more than just a business stop. I dealt with 3 front desk clerks and they were all friendly and helpful.

We were travelling south during the holidays and used TripAdvisor to find a place as we were getting tired. The hotel was very clean and the staff was great. Would stop there again when we go back through!

The rooms are clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The hotel staff were very friendly and informative. This is a great property if you are attending concerts at Oak Mountain Amphitheater or a sporting event at the Pelham Civic Center, since you can walk to both.

Our room was very clean and comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathroom was large and had plenty of towels. It's a quiet motel. One of the best Holiday Inn Express's we have stayed in. We stay in many.

My recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Pelham was simply delightful! The guest services staff were all welcoming and friendly from the time we checked in to the time we departed, and the housekeeping department does an amazing job at keeping the hotel clean and tidy! The hotel was in a great location, and our room was extra cozy and comfortable - perfect for a one night stay! And, the breakfast was extra yummy and a great way to start our day! Thank you Holiday Inn Express in Pelham for going out of your way to make this an excellent place to stay!
