Recent guest reviews

Stayed here while traveling with my business bros. When we arrived, the fellow at the front desk checked us in and was very, very nice to all of us. Clean room, good shower pressure, and an indoor and outdoor pool with hot tub. We were chillin! There’s also a small but decent exercise room, but if you want more the front desk will give you a free pass to the gym across the street!

Spent last weekend at this hotel attending a tournament. It was an average experience all around. The hotel could use some maintenance and upgrades, the elevators were iffy, the ceiling in the banquet room was leaking badly, enough that ceiling tiles had to be removed and dish pans perched on wooden slats. My room was clean, but dated. The bathroom was very clean and looked as if it had been recently updated. Housekeeping staff were very pleasant. We had dinner in the restaurant Sunday night, and our server, Dominique was outstanding. Food was good and reasonably priced.

Flawless experience from check-in to check out. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful staff; hot, powerful shower; nice clean, high-quality linens; fantastic food for brunch. Next time I'm passing through Huntsville, I'll definitely be staying here again.

The hotel was nice but did not feature as many upgrades as other Holiday Inns I’ve stayed at! The furniture was dated, specifically the sofa in the room and the carpet was quite suspect to me. The conference areas were nice and spacious. I was surprised that breakfast was NOT free!!!! I’ve never stayed at a Holiday Inn that charged for breakfast and I was more than shocked. On a bright side, the restaurant staff was super friendly and kind. My shuttle driver from the hotel was warm and welcoming which made my morning a bit brighter. On the other side, the lone female staff at the front desk was “UN” everything (ie. unwelcoming, unfriendly, unconcerned, and looked quite unhappy with my questions)!!!! To be honest, if I visit Huntsville AL again, I won’t stay here bc I don’t see the value especially since not having a free breakfast causing haste with regards to finding local options.

Stayed at this location for one night and while the hotel is in need of upgrade the staff certainly makes you feel at home. Not far off of 565 it is very centrally located for Huntsville. Oh and did I mention there is a Top Golf RIGHT NEXT DOOR! Great bar and good food here you won’t be disappointed.

At check in I was informed the resturant and bar was closed for renovations. Although the front desk guy said it was posted online it was not posted on the IHG mobile app where I booked. He did agree to undo my check in, but at 4pm on New Year’s Eve with a total of 4 rooms it would would have been hard to find another place on short notice. Odd they told us it was closed for renovation and the sign posted said it was closed Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Years Eve and New Years. There was zero renovations going on in the bar on New Years Eve! The lady at check out was beyond rude to others in my group. I was emailed a survey and in the comments I asked for someone in mgt to call me so I could advise them of the situation we experienced with the unprofessional staff member. Does not appear mgt cares as I have not received a call or email. I will not return to this property. The bedding was very comfortable and rooms decently clean.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn Research Park for two days while in Huntsville. The room was very clean and the staff was super friendly. The bed was super comfy and the shower had perfect pressure. Just across the street were plenty of food options. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone in Huntsville for a brief stay. Thank you

The check in was really fast and the bed was so comfy. I really appreciated that the room had a Keurig, mini fridge and microwave. The room was very clean except for a few spots in the bathroom: a smear on the door and a dusty vent, but that's me being a weird detail person. The location is great and I know this hotel will be in demand once the construction is over, but it definitely needs an upgrade. It is a little dated. My biggest drawback was that the doors were easily slam-able, if that makes sense. Every one of my neighbors who got up early's door was really loud. My experience overall was really good.

Two veterans with service dogs stayed at this hotel. The front desk was helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable. Beautiful clean pool, had plenty of toys for kids. The bar and restaurant had entertainment both nights. Located next door to Top Golf. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

Holiday Inn in Huntsville was a super fast check in. Great location with plenty of parking; and a quick and courteous staff to help you replace your toothbrush or find out fun things to do in Huntsville. The 24 hour business center was a lifesaver as I needed to get to a printer at some point. Really sweet indoor/outdoor swimming pool set up and a great restaurant with a delicious lunch buffet. After the show we were trying to have a few drinks and were stoked to find a cool little nightclub in the hotel (which was bumping and had an awesome band playing – hate we missed karaoke night). We had a very comfortable stay. A+
