The hotel was ok! The things I didnt like is that there were signs of roaches… i.e. a smashed one on the bathroom wall behind the door. Also, black stuff on the walls which my bf said was a gel to kill them… and the room is really out dated! The things I did like… I didn't see any live... More

The front desk was extremely rude and we waited over an hour for our hotel room that we had reservations for because the women at the front desk were too busy on their phones. Although the cheap prices may sway you, please spend the extra cash and book your stay somewhere else. This place is complete trash.

We stayed for one night on our way to Florida. After checking in to our "non-smoking" room we found burn holes in the carpet, the room smelled of smoke, and we even hard burn holes in the blankets. We've stayed at budget hotels for a night on the road in the past but have never stayed in a more disgusting... More

I checked into the hotel early in the evening. I was given a high room at the furthest end of the hotel away from the reception. The noise from the freeway was awful. I asked for and received a quieter room near the reception. The staff were fine about this. apart from the noise a pleasant stay.

We weren't expecting a luxury hotel seeings how this was a Motel 6, so we weren't too disappointing with what it was. The beds were fine. No bedbugs and they were comfortable enough for the three nights we stayed there, which is the main thing I look for in a hotel. The water pressure was fine. The rooms could use... More

We stayed at this crappy hotel and our car was broken into and everything was stolen. Motel and room were not in good shape. The beds were not comfortable. Move on to another hotel. It would be best not to stay in the Birmingham AL area. Try to stay away from motels off I65 in big cities.

Clean, extremely courteous friendly staff, first pleasant experience with a Motel Six after three disasters. I was driving from New Jersey to Houston and simply wanted a clean safe room with a decent functioning bathroom and a TV on which I could watch the Packers playoff game. (The game was the only disappointment of the evening.) Highly recommend for travelers... More

I was robbed at gunpoint at this motel by a man who, according to the police, had been robbing a lot of people at locations which don't have any security cameras. This must be the last remaining motel in the world with no security whatsoever. The door to my room had clearly been broken down previously, and the deadbolt sloppily... More

Yes it needs updating BUT if you need a good inexpensive night stay with a comfy bed and clean room and good water pressure this is a great choice. When we pulled up we thought we had made a mistake but we took a chance that the reviews were right "cheap but clean" and they were. Oh yeah and the... More

This was my first time to stay at a Motel 6 establishment. I have been told that all locations were not the same. I truly hope not. I had a horrible visit at the Birmingham AL. This location was not up to par to say the least. Let's just say if you see the light on run for cover!
