Angie Graham

Love love love our stay at Hampton It was nice to be welcomed to the facility Being back in Huntsville was nice

I moved in 2018 Next time I’m there will definitely come back, hopefully I can have breakfast during the stay Missed out on this trip due to long road trip ahead Accessible room was Awesome My mom enjoyed the roll in shower Highly Recommend this hotel it’s down the street from Bridge Street where the shops and restaurants are Thanks Hampton Inn

We stayed here 4 days while going to the Space museumPros: great location- you are only 5 minutes away from the Space Museum and plenty of restaurants Hotel room was what you would expect- everything was clean, bed was comfy

Very average The pool area is nice and there was plenty of pool towels each day Sitting area outside with fire pit was very nice Great views If you get a room on the back of the hotel Everyone was friendlyCons: the breakfast was horrible They served the same thing every single day! Sausage basically 4 different ways The cereal options never changed and by the end of our stay there was no fruit or hot chocolate left We are pretty laid back and easy to please but by the end of our stay I was very disappointed I would recommend maybe having more breakfast options and taking more pride in the appearance of your dinning area We sat at the same spot every morning and you could tell it wasn’t getting cleaned The base of the table was dirty with the same dried food/jelly stains on it every day The carpet/furniture was stained and no one wiped down anything that I saw in between people sitting at tablesWe stay at a lot of Hampton Inns due to being part of the Hilton rewards program and this by far is one of the worst ones I’ve ever stayed at Overall, I do not recommend this place and we will not be back 😔

I give them 3 star because the kitchen area could stand an update for the appliances! The room was nice and roomy The kitchen area was very convenient for longest stay Nice little area to dine

Also another area for business workPretty good breakfast!!! I enjoyed the waffles fried potatoes, scrambled eggs, and sausage !!!😊 👍

Ellison Brown III

Pretty nice here Quiet location Friendly staff

Had a small issue with my room upon check-in Made the staff aware, and it was immediately resolved Upgraded to a new room Put me in a suite instead Thank you front desk staff!!! The maintenance staff fixed a printer issue in the lobby business center for me on the spot Oh, breakfast is pretty good, too See why I’ve enjoyed my stay so far?!?!?!?

It’s Tanya!

Front desk associates, no matter who yiu spoke with, were very nasty and did a great deal of socializing amongst themselves instead of focusing on the customer They were quick to battle with you on rooms that were prepaid We had to let them see our virtual receipts and confirmations, which should have been in their system already

The rooms are very dated The bathroom was very 80s and we did not use our showers because it just appeared gross The kitchen area was ok, but we dis not use any of the supplies they had available due being unsure if they were cleaned/sanitized We took it upon ourselves to sanitize each room before unpacking anythingThe ONLY ok thing is the location That’s it We will be staying at the Element next time when we come back to visit our Huntsville fam

The check in process was very simple and efficient I had a easy time doing so and the staff is as professional as could be I did have an issue with actually get into my room

The battery was dead on the door, so I went down to the front desk and they ended up putting me in a corner room instead The room was very spacious and exceptionally clean There were a couple minor inconveniences; there was no hand soap near the sink and none to be found anywhere, the conditioner inside the shower was empty and the toilet paper roll was 3/4 of the way used Yes, those are small issues but I expect those issues to be taken care of before I even get to the room Aside from that, the access to the airport itself is essentially right here It is indeed in HSV airport itself! I enjoyed a nice quiet night in a clean and comfortable room and would recommend this anyone traveling to and from Huntsville International

Cynthia Murrah

The Four Points is convenient when flying out of the Huntsville Alabama Airport Check-in is so easy We parked in long term airport parking since we were flying out the next morning, but I think there is dedicated hotel parking for patrons just staying in the hotel

Room was very clean One of the reasons I am a Marriott Bonvoy member are the amazing beds in the rooms I sleep so good every stay There is also a restaurant available but we had a very early flight and we were not able to enjoy it on this trip

Toxic Decision

Pros- Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming Conveniently located in the airportCons- room was very basic for the price

Bathroom are ridiculously small The room walls are paper thin, you can hear the rooms next to you like a bedroom in a houseI was woke up several times by loud tvs, doors slamming and other guests just simply talking At 5am when a lot if guests are getting ready to leave its pointless to try and sleep Might as well get up and get moving yourselfI would not recommend if your looking to get some sleep

Everything was pleasant and clean The breakfast was buffet was amazing with vegetarian and gluten free options with a dash of friendliness from the kitchen staff The room was particularly comfortable and extremely clean

Very quiet hotel maybe due to the residential area The room doors are quite heavy for a child or smaller person (to know in case of emergency) Loved the bathroom toiletries The mini mart was also well stocked New favorite in town!

lydia caddell

Very nice hotel, my husband and I have been to quite a few hotels here in Huntsville/Madison area and this hotel is by far the best From the housekeeping to the breakfast staff it was very pleasant I really loved the fact that when I walked off the elevator on the third floor on my way to our room it smelled like cleaning products 😊Then I walked in our room and it smelled very clean most other hotels have a very musty/mildew smell and I can’t stand that, Holiday Inn y’all get an A+ for that

Many choices for breakfast, it was hot food and very tasty My coffee wasn’t hot enough for me and one of the breakfast attendants got me a hotter cup for the kitchen coffee machine I really appreciated that You all do hospitality very well and I hope you all keep up the good work

Beth H

I definitely recommend staying at this hotel While some hotels hire anyone off the street, this Holiday Inn Express employs professional adults who are focused on customer service For example, the breakfast area was staffed by two women (both have the first name of Betty) that kept the buffet well stocked

When the pancake machine broke down one morning, a Betty told two waiting hotel guests that she would bring pancakes to their table after she fixed the machine Nowadays at other hotels, a breakfast employee would just leave the pancake machine brokenFront desk employee Shalonda was friendly and informative when she checked me in She also made sure that my room was to my satisfactionThe hotel was quiet during my stay The room doors are heavy and they seem to help block any noise from other hotel guests in the hallway The bathrooms are more spacious than the typical bathrooms at a different hotel chain (the hotel chain that lets you pick a specific room number in their app) And this Holiday Inn Express stocks the bathrooms with Dove soap bars instead of a cheap, generic hotel soap bar Oh, and the TV has the most channels that I have ever seen in a hotel room It just goes to show that while other hotels are cheapening out on amenities, this hotel is still focused on the customer

Todd Jelinski

Absolutely beautiful hotel! Fantastic front desk service Outstanding fitness center! Great location Really enjoy the proximity to so many restaurant options

King room is very spacious Clean Well kept Really like the bed and pillows Have been getting Great sleep Nice bath towels and really like the shower Only negatives are the walls and doors seem a bit transparent in that you can easily hear others I am a hard sleeper so it doesn’t bother me while I sleep, but when not sleeping it is really easy to hear other conversations Also, not the nicest facial tissues or toilet paper, rather course and not soft at all The negatives would not stop me from staying here again or recommending others stay here I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel!!

Nick Paventi

Nice hotel, very clean and friendly staff, hotel was busy with lots of people staying on the night we were there, however breakfast service wasn’t able to keep up with the demand/number of people and there didn’t seem to be much of an effort to ensure things were being replenished quickly enough Unfortunately people have places to go, and things to do and having to wait around for breakfast items/coffee to be replenished really doesn’t help That said, the breakfast items (when they were available) were all of excellent quality

Samuel Lynon

Its not that I like to give bad reviews, but I have to say I’m greatly disappointed The hotel is really in a good location with multiple eating establishments/attractions The following are my areas of concern:- One(1) microwave for use in the 4-story complex located on the first floor lobby

– In-room mini fridge didn’t properly cool- The breakfast was minimal in quality and quantity or servings- Food delivery personnel were only allowed to enter lobby; required guests to meet in lobby for pickup- Reservation cancellation fee equates to a full non discounted night if within 24 hours

Make sure to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your room They compare countless booking web sites and normally will have prices much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This hotel is one of the best in this area

I have been coming here for years If you stay for a few days you for sure won’t regret itThe staff is awesome! Always helpful and kind I don’t stay at hotels much, but if I ever do, I will definitely come back I will also recommend this hotel to anyone needing lodging The rooms are a little dated, however they are clean and comfy Thanks again to all the staff of Best WesternGod bless


We really enjoyed our stay here! The room was clean and spacious There’s a coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator in the rooms The breakfast options are amazing and delicious

They have smoking rooms and best of all, they allow pets! There’s a restaurant on site which is only open after 5 pm They even have a shuttle to take you anywhere you need to goanywhere! Overall, this is absolutely the best Best Western Plus I’ve ever stayed

Shanita Mccullough

I loved staying at the best western a couple of times now their rooms are clean great breakfast in the morning and a little late check I recently went to stay and found out they charge a deposit fee for there rooms now there rooms aren’t all that fantastic based on hotels I have stayed at recently I recently also stayed at the Hyatt Place and hands down best hotel compared to the Best Western they do not offer a deposit fee they only offer $15 fee for incidentals

Now they are higher in price compared to the Best Western but it’s really not worth a deposit type of hotel as there new policy states i am a diamond member so I have been going there for a while now and never thought they would change up so much so quick but I know a lot of hotels that do now have a deposit fee and that’s crazy for one you all are none smoking so if in fact I know that extra $200 they do charge is crazy but it’s just feedback

This hotel was affiliated with the Huntsville Comic And Fan Expo during 22-24 April 2022 Hotel decor is very modern, rooms were spacious and comfortable Large shower was also nice

Hotel Staff were the best-of-the best!! We arrived early so no rooms were ready yet but JOY at the front desk was nice enough to call me when the room was ready Her Customer Service skills were TOP NOTCH!!! After finishing at the convention, we interacted with Dajuan (I have trouble remembering) who also was extremely pleasant and also had Great Customer Service skills The next morning we took advantage of the breakfast offered BAR and KITCHEN staff displayed the same great attitude regarding customer satisfaction Whomever is running this hotel definitely knows what they are doingWe will be back for next year’s convention and will be staying at this hotel again WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

Parker Strickland Robinson

UPDATE: I received a lovely apology email from the original employee I spoke with She genuinely thought she had passed along the information already, so she was shocked when she was told about my original review I appreciated her reaching out and taking responsibility for the situation

Initially, I called the hotel on a Friday to inquire about renting an event space I spoke to a friendly and helpful employee who said they would send over some information, but it would fall under a different employee’s responsibilities due to the nature of the event And that they would pass the information on to that individual By the following Wednesday, I still had not had any emails or calls from the AC I called again, and left a voicemail Another week has gone by without any followup Absolutely ridiculous

Steven Smith

The overall experience was awful The day we checked in, I noticed there was only one cup There was no body wash in the dispenser, and there was no hand soap

We stayed four nights and had to ask for towels every single day Even after we specifically asked that our room be cleaned, it wasn’tThe first morning, the lobby coffee service area was in disarray and needed to be cleaned and reorganized There were no cups, and the desk staff acted as if they were hesitant to get more Often, I noticed there was no body manning the front deskThe main level bar had a very nice bartender on Friday and Saturday nights, but the bar was lacking several things needed to make the drinks we ordered, and they were very common drinksOne of the two elevators was out of order for part of the weekend, but I never noticed a repairman, nor was an “out of order notice postedThe only redeeming quality of the entire stay was our visit on the first night to the 2nd floor outside bar The server (Malcolm) was great, as were the drinks However, this is nowhere near enough to get me to stay here againFor the price we paid, I expected MUCH more This room was part of a block of rooms reserved for a wedding However, my friend and I would have been MUCH better off staying at the Hampton Inn that was within yelling distance Well, live and learnIf you are considering staying at this hotel, I HIGHLY suggest you consider other accommodations

Nice hotel to stay in the area We were there in July of 2021 The grounds were beautiful, and with easy access to the Town Center outdoor mall that has a variety of food options

I don’t think you can beat the location Also easy and free parking I was pulling our 20′ cargo trailer, and was able to find plenty of spaces in the back to park my setupThe room itself is nice, nothing negative to mention I think my only comment would be that breakfast service was extremely slow for the number of people in there Even getting the bill at the end took an inordinate amount of time It didn’t seem delayed due to how busy they were, more like inattentiveness I wouldn’t normally note this unless there was something off about it, thus the reason for deducting one starHaving said all of that, I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again

Eric Workman

The experience has been so relaxing and wonderful The hotel staff from Ms Emily in the front desk to Ms

Angelica in the food department have all been so professional, kind and very reliable Any issue that has come up has quickly been resolved by them with no issues The rooms have been clean and smelling quite nice I would highly recommend

Michele Prichard

Vinny and Jesse are the best! They took care of my needs despite the busy check in and challenges in parking They anticipated my needs and provided excellent customer service Working together all the staff navigated a busy crowd

I appreciate their attention to detail and exceeding expectations I look forward to my next excellent Marriott stay!

We ended up making our reservation online because after spending calling the local number and asking about a room and then being transferred to the main call center and waiting for more than 10 minutes and then given an inflated amount it was better to do it online! Not sure why they couldn’t just have handled it locally since this was a last minute kind of thing We then went to check in and the process was fairly easy We got to our room and it was clean and what we needed

There were only 2 bath towels there and I needed to just for myself so we needed an extra one and there were 2 maids on the floor so I asked if we could have an extra bath towel and both of them told me that I had to call the front desk I then called the front desk and they told me that they didn’t have any So I asked that when they get one, could they send one up? That never happened! My husband ended up asking another maid that he found and got one How hard can it really be to just get an extra bath towel? Check out was quick and easy, but the staff was not overly friendly So the experience was okay, but nothing spectacular or welcoming At no time did we feel valued or appreciated We got a clean, safe room, but not great service

Brian B.

The staff at this location is very friendly and professional Also, the rooms were clean and the property is in good shape I was disappointed with the check-in process

I was given an upgrade to a suite by Hilton Honors during the mobile check-in room assignment It wasn’t honored by the property and told me it would be about $80 more per night if I wanted to keep it I informed the front desk that the app automatically gave me the complimentary upgrade and they said that a manager denied it That’s really bad customer service Someone should have contacted me to explain what happened prior to my arrival, because it comes across as a bait and switch Also, my original room rate was increased by $16 per night as well However, the front desk manager was very professional and did end up honoring the original booking rate The good news is that this has been the only property I’ve stayed at recently that correctly posts the food & beverage credit Even though I was disappointed with the upgrade process, I’m pleased with the end result

Melissa Walker

One star is too much for this hotel The first thing that happened was our toilet wasn’t working and the water was scalding We couldn’t get cold water out of the tap to take medication

The air conditioner never worked well and that never got resolved The elevators worked off and on and they told us someone from an adjoining state would have to come and work on them, which never happened My daughter reported there was feces in the pool one night When we first got there, the young woman at the desk was not friendly at all We were in town for my mother in laws funeral It was very upsetting that they charged so much for what was AT BEST a decent Motel 6 The people we complained to gave no reassurances that anything would change or be resolved We will never again stay at any hotel affiliated with the Hilton brand It is clear that customer service is not on Hilton’s list of priorities I’m not sure what is, except maybe Paris’ 615 million dollar wedding The corporation could have spent even a portion of that on bringing their facilities up to date and functional, and on training employees in customer service and paying them a decent wage

Gabriel Mendez-Frances

Really enjoyed my stay at the Marriott by the US Space and Rocket Center

The rooms were all very clean and modern, they’ve since renovated from the last time I stayed here three years ago and it all looks fantastic I used the gym while I was here and they have lots of modern equipment including Peloton bikes — tried them for the first time and really enjoyed the experience The pool still seems to be closed though it says it only is for the Winter Also, the M Club is closed on weekends due to staffing issues Still a great stay overallHowever, there were a lot of mishaps service-wise that I think needed to be pointed out These were all resolved when I asked about it, but I had to make multiple trips to the front desk each time• When I checked in, I was put in the wrong room• I waited upwards of 45 minutes to get served at the bar (only one bartender, to be fair)• By the time I was served, the kitchen had closed and I wasn’t able to get anything to eat• I had to ask for a free breakfast coupon for the morning, but I wouldn’t have received it otherwise• I used a $10 food and beverage coupon, but after I checked my e-folio, it wasn’t appliedAgain, I got these all fixed up and the staff were happy to assist, but I felt a bit odd going to the front desk so much asking for stuff Still had a nice stay though

Jonas Brooks

It may not be close walking distance to a lot of bars or other places to eat, but it it easy access to the highway and you could be Downtown Huntsville within 5 minutes The Huntsville airport is only about a 10 minute ride away However since Covid they don have shuttle service to and from the airport

The rooms are exceptionally clean and the staff is VERY HOSPITABLE There is a restaurant on property which is convenient and the food is good I must say

J Sherrell

—-never received a reply from the manager regarding our email—-Hello Ryan,We just wanted to take the time to share with you how our experience went during the weekend of May 20th at the:Huntsville Marriott at the Space & Rocket CenterWe arrived on Friday and were greeted by Marriott staff with no obvious concerns or issues However, as we entered our room, we noticed a very “stale” smell We figured that maybe because the building was a bit older, that all the other rooms were also this way

To our surprise, none of our family/friend’s rooms had this issue as far as we’re aware We mentioned it to housekeeping, but nothing was done about it Housekeeping never tidied up our room while we were away and lastly, we called down to the front desk on Saturday to request washcloths and were told that there were no more washcloths in the entire hotel! How could this be?We were told by the supervisor at the front desk that “the hotel had an abundance of guests and that there was nothing she could do about it because housekeepers are the only individuals that know how to operate the laundry facility” Your supervisor suggested that we could wash up using SOAP and our HANDS!! This is the most absurd and barbaric thing you could ever suggest to a paying guest, and I would hope that you nor your management team do not find this to be okayThe response we received was extremely inappropriate and unprofessional and we hope to never experience this again We hold Marriott and its affiliates to a high standard and we’ve never known Marriott to operate this way

Front desk staff left a lot to desired, but the rest of the staff were great Stanley, Annette and Carol at breakfast were amazing They all had the best attitudes, smiles for everyone and did everything they could to make our breakfast enjoyable

The omelets and biscuits and gravy were delicious The bartender at the manager’s reception was great as well Asked her to make me something sweet and she made me a delicious cherry limeade with rum that I will definitely be asking for again!There are some issues with the air Had to have maintenance come in and look at it It got better but still was on the warm side even with it set to 62 and I don’t like being cold

Tracy Briones

Room was not clean when we checked in However, hotel staff (Sid) quickly found us a nicer room and gave my kids a snack pack while they waited Second room was perfect and comfortable

Breakfast was awesome Lots of variety and cooked well Annette on the wait staff was so welcoming and sweet She filled us in on the happenings around the hotel and gave great serviceConstruction was ongoing but quiet and didn’t interrupt our stay or sleep

First for the good The beds and linens are excellent Definitely above normal hotel quality

The shower water is excellent Lots of water flow which is not normal in a hotel The breakfast is very good Annette and all her coworkers are very friendly and helpful Good selection for various tastesNow the bad For the price paid everything should be nice Three desk type setting chairs looked like the seats had been shredded by a cat There was a huge water stain in front of the refrigerator Decor was datedTo be fair they seem to be in the middle of a major renovation This place before you get here puts on an air of being the best Right now they are a long way from itThey really should lower their prices considerably till the place is done renovating

We made a reservation at what we thought was this hotel, but instead it was in Athens, Georgia 🤦 the front desk supervisor Karen Smith was so wonderful! Even though she couldn’t accommodate our stay, she prompted me to write a review simply based on her excellent customer service She was friendly, so helpful, and went above and beyond for us Karen is a true gem of a person and the Athens, Alabama Fairfield is lucky to have her! Thanks!!

Stayed there last night Room was clean and tidy Next morning breakfast was filthy

Not a clean table to be found although nobody was seated Food was everywhere on countertops Old burning crusty oatmeal was in oatmeal cooker When we tried to ask if there was someone who could put more out and clean a table we were ignored for 20 minutes


Horrible person at front desk, never in all the times we’ve been here have they ever been this awful and nasty My husband had booked with points, and it was in his name, but because he wasnt with us, they would not let us stay there, would not talk to him even though I had him on my cell phone He called home office, and they basically just put him on hold and jerked around

Apparently it was a new policy just put into place, but never told to us when he booked(mind you, numerous times before we have booked this way and never had a problem with him not being there to check in) Would have thought they could have been a little more accommodating to a mother with 3 kids and customers for years at 10 pm at night after a long day of traveling We will never go to another Marriott again and are cancelling our card The woman at the desk that night was the coldest, cruelest most uncaring person I hope the rest of the places we go to in Alabama are a little more hospitable than this!!!

First time in Huntsville in several years Love the location of the hotel in the village surrounded by restaurants and little stores Perfect location and close by bigger stores

Love location restaurants near hotel After spending a long time in car driving; It was nice to walk to restaurants and take in the fresh air The indoor pool was great It wasn’t as heated as much as we like but it was okay We had to make appointment to utilize the pool I am assuming because of covid restrictions

This Hampton Inn and its team are DREAMY! First, the hospitality extended by the welcoming team was impeccable and first rate–giving us the lay of the land with the restaurants surrounding the hotel, coupons, recommendations and providing super helpful support at every point of contact Secondly, the location is fantastic, situated in an oasis of greenway trails and restaurants all within an easy stroll Finally, the hotel itself is by far one of the standout Hampton’s I have ever stayed in

Beautifully appointed, fabulously clean and spacious, with a generous breakfast buffet TOP NOTCH experience and you will fall in love with this property as your new favorite!

My son and I were visiting while he was doing a science camp in Huntsville Hotel new and clean, but what really made the trip were the people working there – the whole team just seem to have it together and are super helpful and friendly The neighborhood is awesome too – there are lots of restaurants within a 1 minute walk, I mean right across the pedestrian friendly street

We walked and ate at a different restaurant each night Perfect stay

You can tell that the hotel needs some updates to the outside, in the hallways and just cosmetic stuff But, honestly, for the price, it’s a nice, clean & convenient place to stop Very kid friendly

The staff was very good with my kids The rooms themselves were very nice and clean Spacious enough for our family of 6! Which can be a challenge for us

Shannon Marie

The room was nice The customer service was decent The manager was excellent

The bed was a little hard with very soft pillows(but I bring my own pillows) The room was super warm, even at 60°F and there wasn’t a clock The hotel has great amenities and a decent breakfast We always stay at this hotel for convenience to friends/family Definitely will stay again

After more then 6 hours on the road nothing is better then laying on a comfortable mattress That was unfortunately not the case at Double tree here in HuntsvilleThe king room that we reserved kept us from achieving a good night sleep

We kept falling into the middle Found out this was because the king was actually two twin mattresses which may be the size of the queen Now we have two people in the bed and we would have booked two queens if we knew in advance so fair warning to anyone There also is a glass door between the bedroom and living room but if the door is open the opening is small and kind of makes you feel like your in a submarineThe art and decore were modern and gave a warm and cool atmosphereWe have family at space camp and felt this hotel was so much more affordable then the Marriott

My wife and I stopped in late without reservations The clerk on duty, Solomon was emphatic to the situation and was willing to try to help us find other accommodations nearby He said he wanted to double check and discovered another guest has canceled and he got us the only remaining room

On top of all this, he was fun! We also met a manager later in the evening, Kyle He was super friendly, gave us great advice on local BBQ restaurants and a local white BBQ sauce All the other folks on staff were just as helpful and you can tell that service is a high priority here The room was super clean and modern The common areas were all spotless and we could not have been happier with our stay here Highly Recommended!!!!

This place was awesome Comfortable, Spacious, and Clean rooms Nice indoor pool and hot tub

Free Breakfast, Dinner, and Cocktail Drinks are a huge money saver The staff remembered me by name The location is straight across the highway from the Space Center You really have to nitpick to find any cons We will be seeking out Drury Inn Hotels for future vacations Don’t stay anywhere else
