Recent guest reviews

I was not expecting such a nice room with a Holiday Inn Express. I needed a room quick and close to my client. The room was much nicer than I expected and I slept very well as it was very quiet. A gem of a hotel for the money. I didn't use it but they have a fitness area and a swimming pool. Breakfast in the am. Not bad.

My sister had to come for drill and I tagged along and stayed in her room. I really just wanted to hang at the pool and lay around. I got everything ready and was so happy when I saw I would have the pool all by myself. Until....... I went to get in the pool. From a distance it looks a little dirty. I stepped on the first step and I saw it. All over the steps in the bottom of the pool and all over the walls. MOLD! Black mold. I reached down and felt the water it was like bath water, it didn't even smell like there was any chlorine in the pool. Needless to say I didn't get to swim. And when I said something they acted surprised and said they would look into it. Not coming back here. Ever!

Stopped for one night on the way home from vacation. Had indoor pool that was enjoyed by our five year old. Walking distance to several food places. Taco bell in same parking lot . Check in and check out was fast and easy. Staff was super nice and friendly. Great free breakfast and free coffee 24/7.

Two night stay while in town for AF OTS graduation. Hotel very convenient for access to Maxwell AFB, but even if it were farther away, would have been glad to drive to stay there. Everything was excellent. Clean facilities, good breakfast, but most importantly every single staff member we encountered (from the hotel manager to the cleaning staff) was extremely friendly and helpful, and each one seemed genuinely concerned that our stay was going well. I've stayed at other hotels in Montgomery before, but none could hold a candle to this place. If I'm ever staying in Montgomery again (or somewhere reasonably close), I'll definitely stay at this hotel!

Really nice holiday inn express. Great service and really well kept rooms. Highly impressive staff. Really friendly and accommodating. The location to the highway and food and gas was awesome for some one traveling.

Our family of four stopped here for a one night stay. Hotel was easy to find. It was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the breakfast hostess was great! Two disappointments...1) the bathroom was very small and dark. 2) being an IHG member I had requested a room away from elevator due to noise, so they placed our room next to the laundry/ice/vending room. Kind of defeated the purpose. Overall good stay.

From the two ladies who checked us in, to the maids, to Ms. Mona at breakfast, this place was aces! You could tell that the folks who run this hotel really care about their jobs. We stayed at a couple of other places during this trip (a chain that rhymes with chariot, and a B&B) and I must say that we had the best service BY FAR at this HIE. No joke, they need to give seminars. As for the rooms themselves, they were very basic, but very clean, and reasonably priced, which is what matters most to me. We were in town to see Mary Poppins at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, and the next time we come up, we will be staying here!

Spent one night here while traveling.....we had three rooms for our group. All rooms were immaculate and exactly what we needed for the night. Beds were comfy, check-in was quick and breakfast was good. The breakfast attendant was the best I've ever seen anywhere during our travels. Couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Highly recommend!!

Usually things go pretty smoothly, but this trip we had a few hic cups. First, when we checked in, we immediately decided the room was not large enough for us. Christian was so cordial and offered to show us two other rooms. Mind you, we had already moved our belongings into the first room. "No problem". Second room was great. Then, the next day, we called from downtown Montgomery, about 12:30, to see if we could check out(originally planned to stay two nights). Thomas was at the desk and, again, said "No problem". We hurried back and were on our way to Birmingham. We were not aware that this location had been awarded most customer friendly. Well, after meeting Mona, who was in charge of the breakfast room, and our dealings with the other two staff, we certainly see why!

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days while visiting the historical sites in Birmingham, It is located just off of I-65 and only a 10 to 15 minute drive to most of the places downtown. There are a number of restaurants nearby. We ate at one across the 4 lane highway and managed to survive crossing the highway. They don't seem to be big on sidewalks, or crossing signals, in Alabama since we had the same issue in Birmingham. The hotel is very well kept. I noticed someone cleaning up the parking lot, including hosing down the entryway each morning. The staff is friendly. We stayed in a king bed executive room which was a nice size. Even though it was right next to the elevator, it was very quiet. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very well lit. The shower spray was strong and the towels soft and absorbent. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. We truly felt welcomed at the hotel.
