We have been staying at this hotel for the last several years. It has been refreshing to see their positive upgrades to the building. It is beginning to resemble a five star hotel. I love the courteous staff and the friendly atmosphere.

Difficult to find entrance of hotel once you get off interstate, day or night (especially night). Staff appeared confused upon check-in concerning my reservations made using Best Western Rewards for which I am a member. Breakfast area not kept up. Not attendants in sight & several unsupervised children were allowed to run wild creating havoc & not contributing to a... More

Needed a place to stay late last night on unplanned trip. Room was clean and comfortable. Rate was very fair. Staff was friendly. Free breakfast was decent. Didn't get to see much of the facility due to early morning start but it's definitely a good place to stop for the night.

We have stayed at this hotel for a number of years now. I am so impressed with how the management has continued to make improvements. The breakfast bar in the breakfast dining area looks very nice and is welcome for the busy mornings we are there. The staff has always been very helpful and welcoming. Great place to stay!

Looked to book 7 rooms for 2 weeks and they wanted to price gauge for the weekend of the talladega race. Would not honor our normal discounts and were rude about it. Owned by Gopi LLC. If they are overcharging for race fans be aware of how they think they can take advantage.

Sharon checked us in & was great. Room super close to elevator. All was great until the morning shower. Showerhead needed a good soaking in CLR! It wasn't good at all. Saw a few tiny bugs. Breakfast was great.

hotel was very good, clean, beds comfortable, and breakfast was hot and good. The place had a nice pool and was in a quiet area of the town. It was also near other resturants. Jum and Nicks bar-b-que is highly recommended.

We love staying at this hotel. We feel very welcome when we arrive. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We have been visiting Birmingham once a month for over six years and have tried other hotels. We have seen many positive changes at this hotel.

We spent three nights at the Best Western Gardendale based on a recommendation from a nearby organization that we had appointments with. Our initial impression, both of the room and lobby, was "This is O.K., a little dated, but we'll try it for at least one night.". The hallways had a smoky smell, but upon entering our room, it smelled... More
