Not one of their better locations. The lobby and breakfast was done fantastic. The rooms, however, felt like a cheaper hotel. The room was dark. One light was burned out. The sink drained slowly. Pretty much like a cheap hotel. The breakfast was a normal HIE breakfast but they never put out any of their signature cinnamon rolls. But it...

This property could use some TLC, however the staff did try their best to offer a great stay while away from home on business. That was greatly appreciated! I was also able to make good use of the local areas terrain to go running along the hills, beautiful neighborhoods nearby to go running

Stayed one night while traveling to Florida. Decent location, however rush hour traffic to hotel was very, very heavy. Very courteous staff. Comfortable and clean room. I have nothing negative to report on this hotel.

I've stayed in many HIs and had great experience, so during my recent trip to Birmingham I booked a one night stay at their Inverness location. It was highly disappointing and I won't be back. The room was just gross. It has a bad smell, frozen over freezer in mini fridge, mildew in shower, wallpaper coming off walls, linens were...

We've been to many HI's around the US and throughout the world. This is one of the least impressive we've seen. Dated and worn decor, threadbare sheets, springs coming through the mattress...badly in need of complete renovation. The only reason it got 2 stars is for the friendly staff and convenient location. Would NOT choose to stay here again.

As you'd expect. Staff are superb and make the difference in what is otherwise a chain hotel. Rooms are good size, clean and well serviced. Breakfast is OK, fair choice but for me, far too much sweet stuff, but that personal. Location is convenient but finding it needs some attention, as I missed it the first time as it stands...

I was on business and had booked my stay at Holiday Inn Express. I would have never found the hotel if it wasn't for my Apple map. It is located on a very busy street and 100's of businesses.
