We were renting a house in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and decided to leave the Memphis area a night early to make the drive easier. Friends had recommended the Holiday Inn Express in Pelham. We found the hotel modern, the room clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. The breakfast fare was ... fair at best, but overall our stay...

This restaurant has the most amazing hot breakfast I've ever had in a hotel. I attend a weekly meeting in this place and the breakfast was much better than I would have expected. The space is always clean and the staff is amazingly friendly. I would highly recommend this location to anyone traveling or in need of meeting space.

Clean Rooms, modern design/furniture, excellent staff, great location! You can't go wrong staying here. I've stayed here and also used their conference room for business purposes, was very satisfied with both experiences and would recommend to friends/colleagues both professional and personal.

It's always nerve wracking choosing a hotel in a town you've never visited. This hotel did not disappoint. Very clean, nice staff, super comfy beds. I've never slept so well in a hotel. I do suggest requesting a room that is not adjoined with another. We could hear the woman next door pretty early in the morning and very clearly....

I have never had a bad experience at a Holiday Inn Express until this one. The room they placed us was dirty...there was some unknown stain on the bench. Worse than they, however, was the fact that there was a dried up white SOMETHING that was on one of the beds, the floor, and the nightstand. Gross! We requested a...

We picked this hotel from its great reviews and proximity to the ampetheater. The staff was very helpful and the room was clean. The hotel is very quiet and we slept great. They do offer a nicely prepped breakfast, but we had to get on the road and didn't have time to stay and eat. It is a very short...
