Perhaps the best thing about this property is its location -- across the street from a big shopping area in Homewood. On to the review. This is an older Courtyard -- probably built in the 80s. The only thing "new" about this hotel is the lobby/Bistro area. The rest of the hotel is OLD, OLD, OLD! The first word that... More

I am working diligently with our internet service provider to ensure the experience you had with our WIFI does not repeat itself.

The hotel is ideally located by major interstates and a large shopping area in Birmingham. The front lobby, restaurant, and staff are all awesome. The beds are comfortable and my room had a refrigerator but no safe, Safety seemed good--keys were required to enter the hotel from all exits other than the lobby.No free breakfast but they serve Starbucks coffee...

Frequent traveler for business, we come here to visit our daughter in college. Great Location, Great Value, Great Staff (Espcially Howie / Op Manager). Good pool, work out room ok - but get the free pass to the local Y. Yes it is a little more money, but the staff more than make up for the extra cost. These people... More

I recently stayed at this property on a business trip. The PC's in the lobby for guests to use are incredibly outdated and slow compared to other Courtyard by Marriott properties I have visited. They are running a browser that does not support gmail. The other item that needed attention was the black mold on the ceiling in the shower.... More

During a recent winter storm in my city, this hotel took in many stranded local residents who could not make it home on icy streets. The staff, none of whom could leave, and none of whom could get in to relieve the ones who had already been working all day, could not have been more professional and upbeat. The housekeeping...

Thank you for your kind words. The staff of only 7 employees (only a fourth of what we would normally have) operated above and beyond over this time frame. I have recieved countless calls, letters, and cards thanking them of their service. I am also happy to say that they were all recognized with one of Marriott's highest awards the... More

As a Samford parent, the location of this hotel can't be beat. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the food is pretty good. My only complaint is that the room prices appear to go up when there is a big activity at Samford like Homecoming or Parent's Weekend. That being said, I have stayed here a number of different...

This hotel is located directly across from Brookwood Mall and Target and down the street from Samford and Wildwood Shopping Center and is near a Wal-Mart and a Sam's. My room was very clean. The rooms at Courtyard contain refrigerators, but no microwaves which makes no sense. You are provided with soap, conditioner, etc..There is a fitness room with the... More

They have a nice, large-hotel-style lobby with a small bar for food and drinks, almost like you would get in a nice hotel but on a much smaller scale. The rest of the lobby is clean and modern with comfortable places to sit and watch TV or just relax. CJ at the front desk was very pleasant and, from the... More
