I booked one night here as a package through Expedia. I should have researched it more! The woman at the front desk was very nice and helpful. However, that is where the positive review of this hotel ends. This hotel has rooms set up like apartments (it may have been built in the early 70s as an apartment complex). My... More

Do not use their services if you expect timely shuttle service to the airport. Waited over an hour to be picked up. Driver never even slowed down. In fact, we're still waiting. Will NOT use them again.

We were here for 1 night only, that was a blessing. The hotel or apartments as they really are, are very run down, the only item that has been upgraded is the flat panel TV in the living room. Our room was at the back of the complex, on the first floor, the apartment is 2 rooms with 1 in... More

This place screamed "sketchy". From the second I walked in the room, it reeked of stale cigarette smoke. It looked like the dumpiest apartment I'd ever stayed in as a college grad, and smelled worse. I walked over to the bed, and the bed cover had a hole. The foam cover (?!) underneath the bed cover had a smaller hole,... More

As a single woman, I felt very unsafe. There were men constantly walking around the property that didn't appear to be guests of the hotel. I spoke two some cops who were there as private security and they reinforced my perception of the property. Aside from security issues, my room didn't have soap and I didn't have internet access for... More

The rooms are clean, comfortable, our guys were very happy and the staff took great care of them.... More

I stay at Rime GardenInn a few nights every week when I am in Birmingham on businees. The staff are very freindly and always make sure my needs are met. The rooms are clean, and the suite has a kitchen, living room and a very spacious bedroom. The food is excellent as I have used their room service. Breakfast in... More

This hotel has identity crisis. It is an apartment that functions as a hotel as well as apartment complex (extended stay). It is gloomy, very rundown externally and the interior is very dated and needs upgrade. The lobby looks dark and not very inviting. The building for hotel guest is within walking distance with the "short-term" residence (extended stay). I... More
