We over-nighted at the Best Western Plus Bessemer, Alabama on August 5, 2015. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast had several items to choose from. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Staff was very pleasant! Checked us in quickly. Nice room, very spacious double queen. They just renovated all of the rooms. Breakfast was good, too! Nice stay-over while we traveled back to Houston, TX. If we are ever in the area soon, we'll consider this hotel, if they keep up the great work.

This Best Western has been updated and is very fresh, clean, and inviting. Everything seems new. The rooms are clean, roomy, and comfortable. WiFi is free and works great. Complementary breakfast is adequate although not outstanding. This hotel was selected because of it's convenience to the Interstate highway and several good restaurants nearby. Cracker Barrel and Applebees are within walking... More

This is the best hotel in this area. The location is great, its literally right across the street from cracker barrel, applebees, waffle house. But, you dont have to worry about breakfast because this hotel serves a great complimentary hot breakfast complete with waffles, eggs, bacon/sausage, biscuits and gravy. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Very well laid out.... More

Beautiful hotel room. Clean and magnificently comfortable bedding. Great shower, solid breakfast (though carbs do not seem to worry Alabamans-- first time I've seen chocolate cake and chocolate cupcakes for breakfast!). Great staff. We arrived late and left early on our way to Tuscaloosa. Could have spent less, but was worth every cent!

Over many years, an excellent place to stay. The hotel and rooms are always clean and easy to get to. The restaurant decor is excellent, and the breakfasts are outstanding. The staff is always helpful and knowledgeable.

I think the hotel was over price for the quality of service. I really didn't lack the fact that the bathroom did not have a sink in it. The main sink was in the bedroom which made it uncomfortable for anyone to get a proper night rest.

The hotel staff was great. However, the room was musty, the air condition was loud, and the decor was outdated. We were told the room was pet free but my son sneezed through out the night. It was not a restful evening. The pool was a green color and dirty.
