Probably the greatest Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed in and after 30 years on the road, covers alot of ground. I booked this hotel because it was less than a mile from the venue, but after my first conversation with Deanna Joanes, GM, I knew it was a solid winner.... She and her staff could not have been...

I stayed 3 nights for business. First, let me say the room was clean and housekeeping did a nice job each day. In fact, other than at check-in, I think housekeeping staff were the only folks who ever greeted me or said hello. The 1st night was not bad. The beds are comfortable and like all Holiday Inns, I had... More

Spent one night, 10/15/2016, and had a king leisure room. This hotel is 20 years old, but has just had a complete renovation within the last 9 months. It is very upscale in appearance and our room was SPOTLESS. Even my husband remarked how nice it was to have good lighting in the bathroom! Beautiful bathroom and the best shower... More

This was a pleasant surprise. The room was extremely clean and the grounds were nice. The staff was amazing and we enjoyed out stay. The breakfast was good and hot. This is very convenient to Oak Mountain Amphitheater. However, there is NO walkway to the bridge behind the hotel. It is a steep hill to climb.

This restaurant has the most amazing hot breakfast I've ever had in a hotel. I attend a weekly meeting in this place and the breakfast was much better than I would have expected.
