We have stayed in a lot of hotels over the past 5 years and although the room sizes were good (we had two king suites) but they both smelled - one was smoke smell and the other was mold smell. A quick spray with my room deoderizer helped but we shouldn't have had to do that! Also, we had no... More

We stayed here while visiting UA and the stay was pleasant. The room was clean, had a refrigerator and the breakfast was very good the next morning. It's not too far from the school and I would definitely stay here again.

For a one day stay couldn't ask for anything more, clean comfortable room at a good rate. Free breakfast in the morning was nice. Convenient location not far from interstate, gas stations and food close by.

Clean, spacious rooms, comfy beds, helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast is typical motel fare, uninspiring, but available. Easy to find location, right off the highway and just a short drive to the University of Alabama campus. If our travels bring us this way again we will definitely book here.

This was a last minute trip to see my in-laws before my husband started his new job. It was not an ideal time to travel with my school schedule, but we hoped that while grandmother had the kids, we could have some couple time.
