Very nice, spacious room! Staff was friendly and helpful!

Conveniently located near everything. While there is not a light on the road there are plenty of avenues that could be quickly reached that do.

This hotel has everything you need and conveniently located close to restaurants and the beach.

Breakfast was great! Just not enough seats to accommodate the people. Had to take the food back to our room. No matter how you arrive.

Worst cable tv EVER. ridiculous auality. Like a cable operation from the 1970s

Very nice, clean hotel with a good breakfast. Only complaint was a loud noise coming from the gutters which would start every morning around 4:40am and would wake us up. We looked and it appeared all the rooms were equally distanced from the gutters, so moving our room would not have lessened the noise. Don't know what it is, but was a real negative to an otherwise really nice hotel.

Great hotel. Breakfast lacking fruit. Quite atmosphere. Comfy beds!

The staff were very friendly. Very close to Wal-Mart. Rooms were very clean.

I loved it and I will definitely be back again ...outstanding job

This hotel and the staff were excellent. If I were here on vacation the beach and all attractions were a few minutes away. Everything you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express, a great stay

Hotel staff was excellent , very clean facility. Everything about our stay was excellent except for the comfort of the bed. Our particular bed was not as comfortable as we have grown accustomed to from Holiday Inn. Other than that, great experience

It's average holiday inn and think it's Too expensive for this area

Ck in clerk very nice man. Even reduced rate to include senior citizen discount. Signed papers, gave I'd & Cc. Room nice & clean. NO HOT WATER ON 4TH FLOOR. Second night, notified clerk, went to dinner came back to Luke warm water. At ck out, wife went to front desk for receipt. Older lady having confrontation with some one in back room. Ask for receipt, clerk said no. Rudely, we don't do that?.. After packing car, went for receipt. Same rude wicked witch. Told me rate charged and total. I mentioned senior citizens rate changed by ck in clerk and ask for copy of paper I signed. Very rudely said we don't make changes and scratched out rate. Only $8, but the rudely hate she exibited, only gets negative ratings. Still did not receive any paperwork. Rude clerk needs to find a non-customer service job.

Near Lambert's and the Beach. Great Value and service.

The room was beautiful and clean! We had a wonderful time! The only thing I missed was a balcony to look out on and breathe the salt water air!!! The staff were very helpful and informative. My grand children loved making their own pancakes from the machine for breakfast.

Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Hotel is convenient to everything in Gulf Shores. Breakfast is typical for a free hot breakfast, which is to say, edible but not exciting.

Stayed for one night in the king bed suite. Room was clean and comfortable. I was surprised that there were two TV's (one for the bed, one for the couch). WI-FI connection was flawless. Breakfast was the usual (and good) assortment of eggs, biscuits, gravy, sausage, pancakes, cereal, yogurt, toast, bagels, etc. Only complaint was that it is hard to see from the road when you are first looking for it.

The room was clean, however, the night noise in the hall kept me awake until 4:30 in the morning.

Very pleasant. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We wanted off the crowded beach and this was perfect as it is just feet off a major highway Food was plentiful with fruit and juice and wonderful cinnamon rolls!

Hi Anonymous. Thank you for your feedback. We strive to give our guests good quality experiences when they stay with us. We sadly missed the mark when it comes to your stay and the television in your room. We hope to have another chance to meet your expectations in the future.
