It's alright. Could have been worse. Rooms were clean. Guests were quite. Just an overnight stay to catch a concert. The neighborhood is kind of sketchy though. Not hating. Just saying. Overall decent stay though guess I can't complain too much.

Check in was slow as the clerk was in another room, knew I was there, but took her time coming to the desk. The room itself was small, but not tiny. Bathroom was pretty small and the bath had several spots of mold around the caulking. Towels were thin. Wi-fi slow. One interesting thing is a 4 inch section of... More

Stayed here one night because of the price [only used the room briefly] and proximity to airport. In short, this hotel did not meet our expectations based on previous Clarion experiences. It is unlikely that I would stay here again. On the up side: The hotel is close to two gas stations if you need to refuel a rental car... More

I stayed at this hotel because it was close to the airport. HUGE MISTAKE!!! This is not the best part of town and I was afraid to leave my room after dark. There are no close restaurants and the hotel bar/restaurant seemed to cater to the local residents. I could not check out fast enough from this hotel. I would... More

If you are flying out of the Birmingham airport, you can't get any closer than this hotel. It is very convenient. Pull left out of the parking lot, and you are on the road to the airport. The long term lot is less than 1 mile away. The room was fine. It served its purpose for me and my wife... More

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the area was quiet, although a nearby fire station can be annoying at night, and the refrigerator was quiet. The room heater / AC was moderately noisy and I did not leave it on at night.

I was not greeted by a smile and a hello. The room was clean and that's important. The window was slightly screwed open so train whistles and aircraft was louder then it should be. The TV is an old tube style. The toilet was so close to the floor my knees where practically up to my chin (slight exaggeration). The... More

I had to stay here due to a really late flight in and a really early flight out. The room seemed to have about 20 coats of paint on the walls and they really have tried to keep the old carpet clean. Overall, it was average. The best part is the closeness to the airport. Breakfast is NOT free, but... More

This is a beat up hotel. Paint and air fresheners just won't make it a good place. You can still smell old smoke from cigarettes in the carpeting. It can interfere with your heat-and-serve breakfast. It was microwave hell. I could not make myself eat the breakfast. I drank juice and coffee. Instant oatmeal was all I could eat. The... More
