I am so furious not only with this hotel, but the other hotels along this strip that I may never stay in Mobile again. Upwards of a dozen hotels in this belt line area flash rates of $39--on their signs, in coupons, on billboards. I first went to the Red Roof inn and was given this run around and then... More

We GPSed our way to this area by way of a discount coupon book. The first motel we got to on the I-65 W Service drive was a motel 6. First let me say that any time I arrive at a motel in the late night and I can't come into the lobby but have to check in thru an... More

Made the decision to stay here after 11 long hours of driving and were too tired to get to our original target. With 2 small kids. Lasted in the room maybe 20 minutes before I was grossed out enough to pack up and get out fast. Next time I'll read reviews even when I'm too exhausted. What a gross mess

Stayed with my daughter en route to a veterinarian interview in Mississippi. We picked this at random on the Hotel Row off Airport blvd. Asked for a non-smoking room... but when we got into it... well, as my daughter said: "If this is non-smoking, it hasn't been non-smoking for long". Oh well, it was a stopover, it was fairly cheap,... More

We stayed here to not overwhelm our family; however, we should have. The rooms were clean on the superficial, but goodness if I had a magnify glass... I felt the carpet was dirty that I refused to take off my shoes, I refused to get underneath the bed covers, I refused to put my food on the mini fridge/microwave (good... More

The reason this got two bubbles (stars) instead of one is the lady at the front desk. She was so helpful - ready to offer another room immediately if the door lock on the present room would not function. Also, made sure the room was away from the indoor pool so that I could get my work done. The wifi... More

I was looking for a good, cheap motel, and I got it. It's clean. Lady at the front desk was decent. I wasn't expecting much, and it was an okay one-night stay. Small hole in the bedspread, limited toiletries.

Nasty hotel, only stayed because it was late and no other hotels in area had rooms under $90. Should have stayed at rest area in car. Room, parking lot, sidewaks were all filthy. We had no wifi in room, went to lobby and it just barely worked,,,very slow. Complained next morning, to no avail. Front desk worker that checked us... More
