TripAdvisor Rating


Located near Waterville USA and the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, this Holiday Inn Express is not far from the beach either. After a day of exploring the town, families can spend some time at the heated outdoor pool where the kids can swim and play and the adults can lounge and relax on the surrounding pool deck chairs. The comfortable and spacious guestrooms and suites feature a king and two double beds, a mini-fridge, microwave, flat screen television with HBO and a coffee maker. Cribs, rollaway beds and connected rooms are all available upon request. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is also available throughout the hotel so there is never a concern with staying connected to work, home or school. Families will enjoy the free full breakfast buffet as well with items like hot and cold cereal, muffins, yogurt, fruit and more. Kids under 19 years old stay free at this hotel with a paying adult.

Excellent location

by Mobile196527

Excellent location. Breakfast was okay, except for the cinnamon rolls which were amazing. Fan in bathroom didn't work. The pool was really small for such a large hotel. It should be heated. Housekeeper knocked but didn't wait for me to answer, before opening the door. Luckily I was dressed.

Good stay

by EastTNTraveler

We were here 4 nights and found the hotel met all our needs. It was clean and we seldom heard our neighbors. We were upgraded to a suite so had a couch, king bed and 2 TV’s. Not sure you could watch 2 different shows in such a small space but it was nice. Great towels, nice shampoo etc, and no complaints at all about the internet it worked well. Breakfast was excellent-they are known for their cinnamon rolls and they were very good. Thumbs up for eggs, sausage , biscuits, and even the gravy according to others. All in all a great stay for the money. Lots of restaurants nearby. You would have to drive to the beach - maybe 2 miles.
