Located on "Hotel and Restaurant Row" in Pelham, Alabama just south of Birmingham the HIE is a very nice property. Clean, large rooms, usual HIE breakfast and plenty of choices to eat in the area made this a perfect stop for our trek home from wintering in Florida. Front desk staff was very friendly and both the check-in and check-out...

This past summer, my family and I were on our way to Panama City Beach, Florida, when we were looking for a nice hotel to stay at on the way. This one immediately caught my attention. We walked in and everything was done very quickly for us. There are many restaurants near by, which we found very convenient. The stay...

We had our family reunion at this hotel. The rooms were well appointed and everyone had a good time. One problem was the parking. Although it was free, a section of the parking lot is far from the rooms and up many tall steps. This presented a problem for our elderly Mother. We had to bring the car around the...

Stopped here for the night on our way Destin...didn't expect the trip to the beach to take this long!

We have stayed here in the past and been happy, but were not pleased this time. Bathroom was not clean. Fan was disturbingly noisy, and since we couldn't turn the light on without turning the fan on, we used the bathroom by the light of our phones.

The road noise is awful. Rooms are good and beds are comfortable but the road is right there. Any good restaurants? Nope. Wish other reviewers had told the truth? Yep. Tell you some advice, don't get off the highway, just go somewhere else.

The HIX in Pelham is a nice facility. It is located a half mile off I-65 about 15 miles south of Birmingham. It is near several restaurants and fast food. Check-in was very fast, the desk clerk very efficient and kind. The room was clean and nice.

We stay here a few times a year on the way to the beach. Usually I rate this place excellent. This visit was disappointing. We drove 9 hours with a 3 year old, we kept promising we can go swimming when we get to the hotel. We checked in and headed down to the pool and found it was not...
