No Custoner service and old appliances in room with the A/C set at 60° and will not get colder them 70°. Not sure why this place is a plus because very really small even the breakfast in the morning. Best to keep driving

stay here every year when I pass through Alabama. Nice quiet location away from the highway, but easy access to I65. The requirement to have 200 characters in this location is ridiculous. I will never fill out a trip advisor survey in the future. I can see having a maximum, but to have a minimum--come on get real.

My family found ourselves having to suddenly visit Gardendale due to a death in the family. I was already, clearly, not in the best of place mentally but I was also missing work. They provided free wifi and were very accommodating to my questions. One the day of the funeral, I need to leave the room at 12pm to meet... More

I have stayed at this hotel a few times previously, and every time that I have been there it has been a very pleasant experience. Very clean, great staff, good breakfast options. It is also not too far away from one of the oldest Russian Churches in the U.S, St. Nicholas in Brookside.

I haven't stayed at a Best Western in years and we were pleasantly surprised at this nice little hotel on the northern side of Birmingham. It is hidden away on a hilltop just off the I65, but there are signs to direct you to the hotel. The lady at the counter was pleasant and helpful. Rooms were updated and comfortable... More

Overall this hotel was an acceptable experience. The beds were comfortable. The room was nice and big. We had a king room and it had a little sofa also. The water pressure was good. They didn't seem to have the type of showers where the water trickles out and the shower takes three times longer than usual. The towels were... More

My first stay at Best Western. I was pleasantly surprise with the accommodation. I had only one issue-- a boys track team was placed on both sides of my room as you would assume kids will be loud. After what I thought was long enough for the noise I contacted the front desk and very shortly that came to and... More

This is the best Best, Western we have every stayed in. It has recently been updated not only outside but the inside also. The staff always try and help you any way they can. On a scale to 1 to 10 I would rate it as a 10 +.

This was probably the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed at. Admittedly, they were busy and my room was on the second floor overlooking the dining area. Regardless, the cleaning starting at around 3am, and apart from that every footstep can be heard from the room above, and rooms adjacent. Unless you can sleep through anything--it's not the best place to... More

I began staying at Best Western on a monthly basis over 3 years ago and have never considered going back to the previous hotel where we stayed even though it was cheaper. The staff has always been courteous, professional, as well as, friendly and welcoming. The hotel has continued to make positive improvements in the accommodations. I also travel a... More
