“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at this location on a weeknight for business. The room was comfortable and generally quiet. The fan had the option of auto/constant, which I love since the fan offers some ambient noise. Everything was clean and felt new. The tv picture quality left something to be desired, however, it wasn't necessarily atypical of piped in hotel television.

The breakfast was enjoyable and as expected from a Hampton Inn, but nothing to write home about. The checkout experience and hotel shuttle to BHM Airport ran without any issue. I would stay at this hotel again.

The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. I always try to stay at a Hampton Inn, if possible, and I would definitely repeat a stay in this location. Clean and quiet! The only thing I missed was a refrigerator, but I failed to ask for one, as I was only there one night, so that is my fault. I feel sure that if I had asked, I would have had one.

I was really impressed by this property. I only stayed one night; arrived late, had to leave early, but the hotel made it a nice stay.

The Hilton website lists this as an airport hotel but the hotel is a $20 cab ride from the airport. The check-in was efficient and the lobby has hot coffee at all times. The studio suite looked brand new - king bed, sofa, work station, complimentary internet access, plenty of electric outlets, microwave, refrigerator, bar counter and sink, large bathroom sink counter.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

I always stay in Hampton Inn's when I have the choice and will seek them out over other, more conveient locations (as we did on this trip), because the Hampton Chain does such a good job at standardizing its properties. Even among it's older facilities, Hampton's are almost always updated inside, clean and well kept. This is why I must give this location a poor score because I must comparing it with other Hampton's. We stayed one night here. The lobby seemed updated but our room on the second floor was not. I don't usually mind color but this was painted a mint green, which I've never seen in a Hampton. It was like trying to sleep in Grandma's kitchen. While this doesn't affect your sleep, the paint was old and there were black marks on the wall from the chair. The next morning, we went for coffee. There was no regular cream. When we asked they said, they didn't have any, that the truck would be there tomorrow. Later we went back for breakfast before leaving for the airport. There was no butter or margarine. We had to walk into the kitchen to find someone. There was a poor lady there spoke little english. There was also no manager present. It really takes very little effort for a good manager to run down to a market to get cream and butter if no delivery has been made. A nice breakfast is part of the Hampton experience. I'm afraid that this location just doesn't make the grade. We went out of our way to say here and were unfortunately disapointed.

indoor pool; clean; very nice firm bed; internet service; good breakfast; room was next to kitchen and the sounds through the walls woke me up at around 5:00. But, would stay there again. 30,000 Hilton Honors points to stay here? I don't understand. I have stayed at similar places for about 10000 points.

Room Tip: room 108 is beside the kitchen and you can hear noises through the wall at 5:00 am

Great place to stay if you are traveling on I-20 going towardsa Atlanta.

GPS address is 3930 Old Grants Mill Rd
Irondale, AL 35210

Hubs and I needed a place to lay our heads after driving in the car for 10 hrs.

LOCATION: This location was VERY close to the freeway and was ideal for when we needed to continue on the next morning.

Customer Service: Although the CS was extremely good, I found it hard to get past that everyone behind the check in counter looked like they either just woke up (wrinkled uniforms) or were just not happy. I was happy that it didn't reflect in the way they operated though. Just an observation.

Rooms: VERY clean. I love the open floor plan and the in-room coffee maker. Bed was very comfy.

Breakfast buffet: BOO. -___- ugh. My only complaint. They have a select few choices of cereals...the only thing decent enough to eat. The fruit was warm and mushy, the fold-over-a-piece-of-gov'nt-cheese omelet was border line bounce-able (rubbery) and the bread was stale. They do, however, have a waffle station where you can make your own but I didn't want to fuss with that. So much for hot breakfast -___-

Overall will recommend this hotel for anyone traveling through the area. Friendly staff and comfy beds.

We couldn't get hotel reservations in town for the recent BBVA Compass Bowl, so we booked a room at this location. The hotel is in a safe, quiet area located conveniently near the highway. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we arrived at 1 p.m., our room was not ready. We were about to leave when the woman from the front desk came running out to flag us down because our room had just been completed. The breakfast was excellent and had lots of variety and healthy options. The room was clean and comfortable.
