Hi, what's the closest place to stay (hotel) near this area?
Tracy has made some great suggestions. My only word of advice is that there is some major construction going on right by both of these hotels.
There is a Hampton Inn in Hampton Cove which is over Hwy 431 mountain. While there aren't as many conveniences in that area, you are just a short drive over the other mountain which is south. If you are looking for hiking / biking trails this hotel may offer easier access to more - Monte Sano and the Blevins Gap Preserve.
We really don't have a lot of good hotels in that area which I do find odd now that I'm thinking about it. I guess it is because the area is more residential than used for business travel.
There is a Doubltree by Hilton, as well as a Hampton Inn are located on the south-side of town, which is where Green Mountain is located basically.
They are both on South Memorial Parkway and both are very new, nice and reasonably priced. There is also an Embassy Suites and a SpringHill Suites located right downtown that are both within walking distance of downtown shops, parks and restaurants, which is really nice if you want to take in the unique offerings that downtown Huntsville provides while your in town. I visit downtown often now that there are interesting shops and restaurants popping up all around the downtown square and surrounding streets.
