Great clean, comfortable hotel at a reasonable price. Wonderful fresh breakfast, and excellent service. Super beds! Restaurants within walking distance include Applebee's (open late), Cracker Barrel, and a Chinese buffet. Good location directly off I20. Will always stay here for trips to the University of Alabama campus.

Stopped early and did not realize we crossed a time zone. The front desk would not accept the coupon from Hotel Coupons book. He said it wasn’t any good on the weekend. There was nothing printed on the coupon to this effect. I wanted to get my free night stay from Best Western so I waited for a room. My... More

Dear Fieldagent648, Thank you for leaving us with a review. I would like to firstly apologize about the confusion regarding the hotel coupon. However, it does state on the travel coupon, not valid on special event weekends, which unfortunately was the weekend you arrived. Our #1 Brand was running a very successful summer promotion which you may be referring to,... More

This was the hotel we were placed in after the tornado hit our home in April 2014. We stayed nearly a month and a half.

Which shows they do keep up with their equipment. Breakfast was nice big open room. Plenty of restaurants close by. Check out was easy. Will use this hotel... More

I travel, a lot, I drive an 18 wheeler. This hotel is at the top of my list for several reasons, truck parking is very well laid out, the staff is very friendly and courteous, it is very clean, breakfast was good(how could anyone complain about free?). A tip to other truck drivers, STAY HERE!
