My husband & I stayed in the Zebra Room which had a separate entrance at the back of the house. We met Ira on arrival and he explained that the AC in that room couldn't be altered and it did tend to run a little cold, however a space heater was provided which we did make use of. The room... More

I found the couple very hospitable and I did enjoy my stay but I had a few issues. We stayed in the Zebra Room which had a back entrance. The room was cold and like another reviewer said you could not adjust the AC. The inside of the main house is well taken care of but the Zebra room could... More

Stayed in the Camelot room. Nicely appointed rooms. Everything you need for a restful stay. I would recommend bringing some eye covers, as the hallway light comes into the room from above the doors. The home is next to a business district so more light comes into the room thru the curtains. Outside noise is minimal. Breakfast is good. Would... More

Our trip didn't work as we hoped. My dad's flight to Birmingham was delayed 3 hours, and mine was cancelled altogether. The innkeeper stayed up waiting for my dad. Then when we got bad family news, the innkeeper was very very sympathetic and helpful. We are grateful for their kindness during a tough time.

Our heart goes out to this very gracious man whose family tried to come see their loved one before he passed over. As it turned out, which no one can control, they could not arrive in time. Despite their sorrow, they were a blessing to encounter. We hope they can come sometime in the future for a restful visit. More

Well restored 1898 Queen Anne house in a good location. Beautiful wraparound porch, where we enjoyed drinks and talked with other guests. Owner Sheila had to come from her other B & B to let us in. Pointed out cookies on the entry table, complimentary drinks in the refrigerator. Stayed in the "Camelot" room, complete with King Arthur and Guinevere... More

This review is a mixed bag. Was in between business trips so I invited my niece to drive down and tour Birmingham with me. Stayed four nights. The good news: House is beautiful and full of amazing antiques. Location is great. Had a great time just talking and reading on the front porch. Talking to Pamela was one of the... More

If you want to stay in a museum, where the innkeeper you have to call when you arrive and she has to explain the way to access and Rules with instructions on the phone for a good half hour,this is your place.

We stayed in Zebra Room on basement level so we could go out late and not disturb anyone. Private bath, quiet, separate entrance, clean, decorated more modern than the main rooms. Breakfast was great, sausage, eggs, juice, coffee, biscuits, fresh fruit. You can't beat the price for such a great location. Thanks Sheila and Ira!!! P.S. Try the Avondale Brewing... More

We arrived at the Hassinger Daniels after getting notification of an "upgrade" from the Cobb Lane property the night before only to find a note on the door for a number to call. When we called, the innkeeper seemed confused as to who we were. She arrived about 15 minutes later and gave us a tour of the facility and... More

Both of our Inns have a 48 hour cancellation policy which says that in the event of a no-show or short cancellation (not providing full 48 hour notice at noon 2 days prior to first day of arrival), then the first night's room fees are due and payable. In this case, we waited till midnight the day of expected arrival... More
