Clean, comfortable, friendly. The staff was friendly, the room was very clean and comfortable. Some noise in the parking lot early the first night. Breakfast area was not crowded and the food was standard for HIE. I would stay here if in the area again.

Staff was exceptionally nice. Given what I had heard I was pleasantly surprised how nice and clean it was. My room did have a bit of an "old" smell, but wasn't overwhelming. Baked cookies in the evening and a plentiful HIE breakfast in the mornings. My advice would be to request a room on the backside of the hotel. The...

When I walked in there was a worrisome smell in the lobby (oddly, it wasn't there in the morning). Hallway also smelled; exercise room, our room & AC smelled but not as badly as the hall. Immediately, started my husband's medication diffuser which covered the room odor. Checked bed & found no bedbugs. During the night, we both felt something...

I believe that you are commenting on the incorrect property. The property that you have described is not ours. We have new furniture and have recently went through a renovation. There are no smells in the property. I apologize for your bad experience. However i assure you that it was not here. Thanks

This was a stop, for one night as we traveled to Alabama for our family vacation. The hotel had everything we needed, even for one night stay. We enjoyed the pool and I couldn't get my fishes to get out. The food at the breakfast was great. Everything from hot pancakes to cereal etc. We did not get to explore...

I usually hate traveling without a reservation, but this trip we thought we would try winging it. Very happy with Holiday Inn that we found! Quiet, comfortable beds, clean room and an adequate breakfast. Would stay again and recommend.

We needed a clean, convenient place to stay as we travel through the south on our summer vacation, and found this wonderful place. It is fairly new, and is spotless! We had a wonderful room, big flat screen TV, wonderful bathroom, near restaurants and we even made a short visit to the Walmart just down the street. It is so...

This place was tops from start to finish. Awesome breakfast, kick-butt rooms, and a seemingly rad pool. Staff was extremely polite and welcoming. The fitness center was nice, though it is typical for a random hotel gym. We were just passing through, but MAN are we glad we picked this place! I'd imagine it's one of the more expensive in...
