Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

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...

Dear Tammy, We're so sorry this stay wasn't as enjoyable as your last visit. Our pool had to be repaired and is back up and running now.

We booked a suite and it was clean and comfortable. We love having a separate bedroom and two TVs.

We booked this at last minute based on reviews. Once we got past the check-in experience everything was nice. There was no one at the front desk when we arrived. After several minutes a young lady who seemed a little stressed came out. She asked me to fill out a lot of information which is normally not necessary for priority...

Friendly, welcoming and accommodating! The check in staff welcomed us as we walked in the doors. Registration was quick and efficient.

I remember staying at this hotel when I first started traveling with my company over 20 years ago.
