My husband and I are past customers of this hotel and also regular guest at a nearby location. The owner of the hotel, Ms. Maura, is without a doubt the best in the business. She always has a desire to help others and wants to make sure each and every guest is treated like family. The front lobby is extremely...

I've stayed here several times beginning in 2008 and have never been disappointed. My most recent stay was in May of 2014 and I am still very satisfied with this hotel. I've always used Priceline and the rate is amazing. It's nice when a hotel with such an excellent location that could just get by on that still strives for...

Thank you for being a loyal customer for so many years and for taking the time to post a review. Mobile is a wonderful place to stop during a long drive; we have convenient interstate access yet one can still walk to nightlife in Downtown. We look forward to your many return visits.

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable week-end in the Holiday Inn in downtown Mobile, Alabama May 2-4, 2014. We were there to attend our granddaughter's Ballet Recital at the Civic Center located only two blocks from the Hotel. When we made the reservations, we were a bit concerned that it would be a very old facility and we...

This hotel was great for what we paid. We went during Mardi Gras this year and really enjoyed ourselves. The room was very clean except for the carpet smell when we first entered.

We thoroughly enjoy our stay each time we stay here! Ms. Maura is just a Ray & 90% why we stay here! Adding to our list is the macadamia nuts! Oh mercy!!

First impression? Uncertainty about entrance. Main entrance roped off. Elevator smelled like old bar cigarette smoke. Everything seemed old and worn. Personnel did not seem knowledgable. Location good for old town. Uncertain about security of self park area.

Thank you for your candid feedback. I certainly do apologize that your stay was anything less than perfect. We were painting all exterior walkways over the last couple of weeks so there were entrances "Cautioned Off" at various times. We would never want a guest to step in paint while we do necessary freshening up of the exterior. Our hotel...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown while attending a dance competition at the nearby Civic Center. For events at the Civic Center, you can't beat the HI's location - it's just a quick walk a couple of blocks. Overall the HI is very nice and the rooms were pretty comfortable and spacious.
