Not a bad little hotel for the price. Booked through Hotels.com. Staff was really pleasant, and bar staff was as entertaining as any place I've been. Rooms are a bit dated, but clean, and have modern bedding, flat screen TVs, however had issues connecting to the wifi network. Surprisingly quiet considering proximity to the airport. If I ever travel back... More

Great hospitality in the front desk upon arrival, the ladies in the afternoon shift were so nice. Kudos to their hospitality. Morning attendant very hostile and she was more interested on talking to coworkers that listening to customer questions and concerns. Breakfast is pitiful. I'm not surprise if the health department shots then down one of these days. If you... More

We first got there and the front desk lady was on the phone and proceeded to name her grocery list to whoever she was talking to, instead of checking us in promptly. The rooms were fine, but the bathroom was tiny. The "free WiFi" didn't work anywhere except for the lobby. The pool was also closed. The breakfast voucher I... More

Pros: Incredibly nice, yet overworked, hotel staff. Comfy beds and meat locker quality a/c (niiiice). Cons: WiFi didn't work, sketchy elevators, broken toilet seat, entire hotel smells like latex paint (because they just painted everything, even the old stuff that should have been replaced). There was a broken window on the front of the hotel (ground-level room) that remained unaddressed... More

By My definition this is not a "3" Star at all! It is convenient to UAB and the Airport though.The motel is very dated itself but the room was nice!I had a ground level room but had to go to the 3rd floor to get ice because the ice machines on the 1st and 2nd floors were "broke"? Also there... More

Clarion Birmingham Airport The hotel is very convenient for overnight stays in order to catch an early morning flight but we would not likely stay here again. Overall the hotel just seems to be lacking someone that cares about it. We were on the third floor in a room with two double beds (sure wished queens had been an option... More

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
