Recent guest reviews

Easy off/on I65 with traffic lights. We just missed the evening buffet set up by the hotel staff but heard it was very good. The room was clean and quiet. There is not much around the hotel but there are some food options just on the other side of the overpass.

Staff was professional and friendly. A pleasant atmosphere in common areas. Clean and comfortable room accommodations. Location provided for easy access to downtown. A great stay overall for our weekend visit to Mobile.

We stay here a couple of times a year on our trips to visit our granddaughter in Mississippi. This is an excellent hotel and we usually do not have any major problems. However, there are always a few maintenance issues that need to be addressed. On the plus side, the furnishings are fairly new, staff is friendly (altho she did not ask if I wanted welcome points or "gift" bag - she did give me points), the breakfast is always good and this is one of the fastest internet connections we have encountered while traveling. Problems: a/c is noisy - sounds like a jet taking off, the shower head sucked and needs to replaced, and the sheets are pilled - it is like sleeping on a million tiny bumpy cotton balls. I do recommend this hotel. They need to address some of the minor issues.

1We travel a lot, have stayed in lots of places. This hotel was the best for the money I can ever remember staying in. New construction, excellently furnished, great staff, comfortable bed, I could go on and on. This little place is a gem!

This was a last minute decision as we were leaving the Gulf Coast prior to TS Cindy. It couldn't have been a more judicious choice. Friendly, efficient reception. A room located away from the elevator as requested. Large room, sparkling clean. Comfortable bed and pillows. Super quite. Delicious breakfast. If back in the area, it would be a no brainer - this property would be our choice. And they showed me why I'll consider Holiday Inn in the future.

Very good curb appeal, nice foyer, staff very courteous. I like the DirecTV in the room. I have it at home and that makes surfing easy. This was easily the best continental breakfast I've had. I spend about 30 nights a year in hotels. Convenient to some good restaurants and a walmart nearby. I will definitely be back here.

Everyone was pleasant, helpful and friendly. Carolyn was responsible for the breakfast service. She knew just how to prepare the food. One of the few really good breakfasts offered by hotels for free with your stay. We had Denver omelette, biscuits, gravy and sausage and dynamite cinnamon rolls. Coffee was good too. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Keurig coffee maker in room. Bag with a little bottle of water and a couple of snack bars as a departure present. I would definitely stay here again.

I got a jacuzzi suite with a great bed, excellent pillows and a nice HD TV. Walk in shower is huge and nicely done. Everything is clean, up to date not to mention a staff that is friendly. Wednesday & Thursdays they have a reception dinner. I highly recommend this hotel. This is my 4th visit here and I will continue to come and recommend to friends. You continue to impress this road weary traveler ! Keep up the great work !

I recently stayed here during my comedy tour in Mobile, New Orleans and Southern Mississippi. The hotel is located right off the highway making it very easy to get to. The staff was super friendly, I mean to the point where I had a 30 min conversation with the breakfast lady about fishing in the local area. Yep you read that right, BREAKFAST and it was free! I was even late one morning and they still let me make a plate instead of giving me the "breakfast is over speech". Nice rooms, very comfortable and cozy. The beds here mad me never want to get up in the morning! I am definitely staying here next time I'm in the area. The housekeepers were very respectful in the morning as far as not banging on the doors to see if you needed towels. There is also a fitness center with a good selection of workout materials if you need to get your fitness on while in the hotel. The checking in process was painless and the staff is very knowledgeable about local activities and eateries.

The Holiday Inn Express in Saraland was a great place to stay when visiting Mobile. Just a few minutes from downtown this place was quiet clean and safe. Breakfasts at HIE are my favorite. I grabbed a bunch of the cinnamon rolls and kept the in the fridge. Staff was friendly. Had me checked in in about 2 minutes. This location wasn't just up to HIE standards, which is already my favorite chain, but exceeded all expectations. 4 floor is really quiet. Didn't even hear room service during the mornings. Thanks HIE.
