Madison Al Holiday Inn Express Hotel monitors your internet connection blocks sites\r
While the hotel is nice enough, fairly new I will not stay here again.\r
I find that a hotel that BLOCKS INTERNET SITES, IN YOUR ROOM, ON YOUR EQUIPMENT totally unacceptable.\r
There is no good reason why they should be blocking any sites and everyone should know that they BLOCK SOME INTERNET SITES. The service provider that the front desk had me talk to said it was their software preventing Phising sites but this is a load of bull, fact is they are blocking some sites and everyone should know about it.\r
There are several other choices all within ½ mile of this hotel.\r
It is too bad because this hotel is close to the Airport but so are the others and they are not that much older.\r
If the hotel is deciding what you can surf then they are checking what you are surfing and this is an invasion of privacy. I do not need them to make sure I don’t get Phished – and if I want to give my banking info to someone on the net, then so be it, that is none of their business period. I know some people likely stay here from Redstone or some of the defense contractors – what info are they getting from your use of the internet?
