My husband and I have stayed here off and on for 12 yrs and are pleased to see the continuous efforts to improve the property. I am especially happy with the new toilets. The old low profile toilets with ill-fitting seats were a real problem.

We've been staying at this facility for ten years. We have always been met by a helpful staff as well as owners on occasion. We have also seen a steady effort to maintain and improve the property. No complaints here.

I stay at this hotel every year when I go to and from Florida. It is a very well maintained property and a very quiet location. The hotel staff is always very friendly and helpful. Would recommend it to my friends.

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.

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.

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.
