The check in experience was great. I reserved two rooms that was supposed to be exactly alike. One room had two full beds with the smallest bathroom I have ever seen and the other room had a king bed with a huge bathroom. The common areas were dusty and had not been vacuumed in a long time. The rooms around the pool area are undesirable as the noise from the pool area just echoes into the rooms. Called the front desk to complain to no avail. Do NOT stay at this hotel.

Hotel was really clean, staff were wonderful. Pool is pretty awesome. My boys really loved it.

We had a very nice exoerience. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean. Free breakfast would be nice.

The entire facility was beautiful and clean. The bed was absolutely GREAT. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. I honestly hate to have to leave. I'll definitely be back in the future.

The check in clerk (Hunter) was exceptional. He was very helpful and answered all my questions. The room was immaculate. This is an excellent place to stay. I definitely recommend it. This is where I will stay anytime I am back in Decatur.

Arrived late and the two guys on the night staff did an outstanding job. Also, the ladies in the morning who handled the restaurant were great. The food was delicious and hit the spot. Thanks for a great stay.

It was good,pictures did look different on internet,and they said the pools were heated and they werent,but it was a pretty nice hotel for the money

Hotel very run down. We stayed here on the way to another location which was our destination. It was NYE. The bar and restaurant were both closed! Go figure??!!! At 8:00 the next morning, a rep from HOUSEKEEPING knocked on our door to change out the HBO brochure for that week! OMG! Not a hotel I would recommend.

Very clean, quite room. We loved the hard and soft pillows...never had that before. We had breakfast the next morning in the restaurant at the breakfast bar...really good. We would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Decatur when we took a weekend away to reconnect. We have 4 month old twins at home and this was our first time away from them. The hotel was very pretty and clean. The staff was very friendly. We loved the game room and the pool. The hot tub wasn't working when we were there, but that wasn't a problem for us, though it would have been nice. All in all, a great stay and we would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

Nice location for our Decatur Soccer Tourney weekend, but there are closer hotels. We did have some street noise from large trucks at various times during the night. The whole place was a little humid due to the indoor pool. My daughter enjoyed the indoor pool. Suites around the indoor pool area were noisy until pool closed. We may try another hotel next year that is a little closer to the soccer fields.

WE HAD A GREAT STAY I HAD MY DAUGHTERS 11 B-DAY PARTY HERE SO THEY COULD SWIM.THE ONLY BAD THING WAS A FEW DAYS BEFORE WE WENT THEY HAD TO REPLACE THE HEATER IN THE POOL SO IT WASNT THAT WARM BUT THE KIDS STILL SWAM IN IT.THE ROOMS WERE VERY NICE,ALONG WITH THE STAFF.

The hotel was an older hotel. you can see where they have tried to spruce it up, but its just an old hotel. Just not a good choice for the price.

When it comes to quality, the Holiday Inn Decatur, AL is just that - your basic Holiday Inn. The place is just dirty. Period. The maintenance and upkeep of the hotel is poor, it smells (even the tap water smells), and the management is sadly lacking. I went back in the kitchen after hours to look for some cream for coffee. What I found didn't surprise me - the place was a mess. Management should be replaced immediately. Its obvious that the investors (the property is owned/operated by a franchisee) aren't paying attention. Anyone serious about their investment would have shaken up the place long ago. The one good thing I can say is that the staff was terrific.
