Given the great deterioration in motel cleanliness and features over the past 2 decades or so, this Best Western is a pleasure to stay in. If you pick up a discount coupon, you can get a room for circa $60 plus tax, i.e., under $70 a night, which, if you stay perhaps 4 nights, ain't hay by my antediluvian standards;... More

Very good value. Room was clean and comfortable .Would stay at this location again. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Breakfast was an excellent start for the day. Somewhat noisy being as it is right off the interstate. Otherwise great choice.

Hotel was clean & adequate. The bed was comfortable too. The breakfast was outstanding. Only complaint is the parking lot was not well lit on a dark rainy night. The hotel is located right off the highway, but we were not bothered by any road noise and our room was towards the front of the hotel.

We have stayed at this motel over the past few years. They have remodeled it during the past couple years. The room we were in was clean and the bed was comfy. Breakfast bar is good. We will stay there again on our way home.

We have stayed here three times in our travels. We have been on the first floor around back. Our room was quiet, clean, and everything worked. The beds were comfortable. The staff were very friendly. We will stay here again. Applebees is right next door.

Pleasant room, convenient first floor for walking our dog. Very nice desk clerk, adequate breakfast. This was our third or fourth visit to this location. Lots of restaurants nearby, right off the I-65.

My wife and I are not frequent travelers but usually stay in upscale hotels/plazas when we do travel. However, we needed a place to stay in northern Alabama on our trip from Ohio to Moody that was pet friendly and close to I-65. This motel was perfect for us! The price was right and the location off the interstate was... More

This was very nice for the location. Was disappointed they did not have any king size beds, and the TV remote did not work. But the service staff was polite. They also gave us 10% off the Applebees next door and they had other restaurants in walking distance they offered free apptizers.

Rooms new and clean. Staff pleasant and helpful. Good value. Three restaurants to choose from all within walking distance. Several hot items to choose from for breakfast plus a new pancake machine instead of waffles that was tasty.

Stopped on our way down to Seagrove beach Florida. More than adequate but must say the breakfast could have been a little better. The shower was very good and bed comfortable. Typical best western. Would probably stay again while traveling down south.
