Convenient location and easily accessible to the interstate. Clean, quiet, and spacious rooms. Nice indoor pool and fitness center, when it comes time to relax. Friendly, helpful, and attentive staff makes this a great choice. The breakfast is filled with lots of choices for any appetite.

We spent the night here driving from FL to TN. We liked that the location was outside of the busier downtown area but there were plenty of food and shopping options nearby. The rooms were nice and large, especially traveling with kids. Big indoor pool with a small workout area too. Breakfast was nice too. Everyone we met, including the... More

Our overall experience was excellent. From the manager to desk clerks to the breakfast attendant the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was hot and well prepared with a nice selection of options.

This is a wonderful, high end property. Great room, great staff, great décor and great breakfast. Definitely on my return to list. Another review to come - do not eat at the local O'Charlie's down the street. Had a long wait for a table in the lounge (we could see 6 empty tables & booths) terrible service and food was... More

Wonderful, helpful staff. Clean and spacious rooms (king). Great rate! Ask about student or hospital affiliation if applicable. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Fitness center doesn't have much, but was available.

We recently stayed here for a night based on other reviews we had seen. We found them to be accurate. The room was very clean and the front desk staff friendly, the breakfast was adequate, though for a weekend the 9:00 cutoff was a little early for our taste. Do understand this is NOT a Hampton Inn, Courtyard level hotel,... More

Our car began to act funny over a Thanksgiving break to Florida, so we decided to break our return trip into 2 parts. We waited until we approached Birmingham to find a hotel, and while researching a different property on TripAdvisor, saw that this was rated #4 in the Birmingham area, and we had recently had a good experience with...
