My mother had an appointment at Kirklin Clinic. Based on location and reviews we chose this hotel. I am so glad we did. We got the senior discount online. The only drawback is that the rooms do not have the option of two beds. You can, however, get a room with a king bed and a sleeper sofa.
Check-in was a breeze, with very friendly staff. Parking was convenient, and the breakfast was decent. The breakfast staff were steadily working and keeping the area clean. Breakfast consisted of pastries, sausage patties, eggs, potatoes, yogurt, cereal, etc. The bed was also comfy and the water pressure was amazing. There was a loud motor or fan running - on and off - during the night. I sleep with a sound machine, so once I got used to the sound it didn't bother me. It may bother someone else, though, so you might want to check with the desk about this when checking in. Our room faced the parking lot (315). On the upside, I think the ambulance sounds were less due to this location. The room was not totally dark due to the street lights.
I must say that every Residence Inn I have stayed at (here, Mobile, Franklin) have all been very clean. This room was no exception. As I have mentioned in other reviews, I always "re-clean" my rooms before I take one thing off the cart. In this room the only opportunity I saw for improvement was dusting of lamp shades and the bathroom floor. Still, the rooms were VERY clean and I felt assured that I was staying in a top notch location.
I like these rooms because of the living room area, kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator. We will absolutely be staying at this hotel in the future. If you are traveling to UAB for any reason this hotel is a no-brainer to me. Located blocks from Five Points, UAB, and Kirklin Clinic it is an excellent location.
