We made a last minute reservation for an 11 p.m. arrival. Stay for 2 nights. Upon arrival, our check in was super speedy, the clerk was courteous and helpful.

We opened our door to find a beautiful room! Smelled clean, looked clean, WAS clean. What a delight to discover our bed was turned down for us! There was very little noise from the hall, and all was great with breakfast.

Checkout was ultra fast.

We would stay again in a heartbeat. Great place, fantastic stay. Wish all hotels were like this one.

WOW!!! We stayed here for 3 nights~ wish I could have stayed longer!!! Beautiful rooms! Well maintained facility, employees take pride in all they do!!! We had a corporate suite with whirlpool room! FABULOUS! Our room was a king bed, also had a sleeper sofa, sliding privacy door to bedroom, 2 flatscreen tvs, one in living room area, then one in bedroom. Refrigerator, Microwave was on the wet bar with seperate sink from bathroom area. The bathroom was awesome, included the whirlpool (for two) and a seperate shower, and WOW the showerhead is huge...everything was very clean, our room had no smoke smell. This hotel is also pet friendly, so our lil companion was welcomed. THANK YOU BEST WESTERN for your hard work, and pride that you show! Will definately stay here AGAIN!!!

We were looking for a hotel with an indoor pool, restaurants within walking distance, and quick access to the interstate. The Best Western Carlton Suites in Birmingham exceeded our expectations with it cleanliness and extremely friendly and helpful staff. I had a chance to speak with general manager Rony Naik on the morning of our departure and expressed my satisfaction with our stay. Our two boys loved the indoor pool and the suite allowed my wife and myself to watch one t.v., while the boys were able to watch in the adjoining area. Also, the breakfast that was included more than satisfied our family.

We have not stayed in a Best Western for years and were very pleasantly surprised. The accommodations were very comfortable, the staff was wonderful and the value was incredible. I booked this hotel after reading other reviews on TripAdvisor. They definitely lived up to the reviews. We have traveled extensively and would rank this hotel as one of the best. I have even paid up to $500 a night for a hotel that was not as nice as this one! Great breakfast too!

We only stopped overnight on our way to Florida from Oklahoma, but we were very impressed with this Best Western. Check in was very easy and friendly and the lobby was very clean and comfortable. We had been on the road for about 12 hours and welcomed the ease of check in. Our room was very nicely furnished, with fridge and microwave. Room was very quiet and clean. We walked across the street to Landry's Seafood Rest. and received a coupon for a free appetizer from the Best Western. As we were road weary, having this restaurant nearby was a great plus. The breakfast was "something for everyone". Bacon, sausage, eggs, gravy, biscuits, toast, hard boiled eggs, cereal, muffins, etc. Also, good hot coffee. We definitely would stay here again if we find our trips taking us in this direction.
