This hotel is our choice whenever we come for a medical appointment at UAB. This trip we stayed an extra day to shop/relax. The hotel staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at ease. The indoor pool was very refreshing. There are many eating places and places to shop within one mile of the hotel. The morning breakfast had a wide variety of choices and was well prepared.

This is a great hotel. The rooms are very well furnished and comfortable. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. The free breakfast is one that I would be willing to pay for. Management is very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to take care of you. When I am back in the area this is the only place I will stay.

Online description of the hotel and the available amenities was quite accurate. The room was very comfortable and updated. We booked the jacuzzi suite. Great for any business traveler or leisure seeking couple. Breakfast buffet was varied. Service was first class.

I have visted this hotel frequently in the last several months. The service is consistent. I feel safe while visiting this location. I prefer a second floor room and my request is usually fulfilled. The staff is friendly and most always greets you. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Breakfast mediocre; fruit gone very quickly. Definitely more like a Holiday Inn Express than a hot breakfast place. Fitness room very minimalist; one treadmill. Clearly not designed for business travel where more people would be working out in the morning.
Nice staff and helpful but not high level accommodations at all in terms of amenities. Basics, i.e. frig and microwave good; bed very comfortable

I am active duty Army and am PCS (military move) to Colorado from Ft. Bragg, NC. My wife, 3 year old daughter and yorkshire terrier was starting our first leg of the trip when we came upon this awesome hotel. With military rate and pet fee (119 dollars), we got a surprisingly spacious room, with tv, microwave and refrigerator, free wireless access (REALLY GOOD and FAST WIFI). Can not beat this deal! Plus, it was an free, fresh and wonderful breakfast (compared to other hotels)- REAL eggs, soft buscuits and a great spread. Location can not be beat, either. From my room, I can see an Old Navy, Macdonalds, OCharleys, Chilis and more.
The best part is the professionalism and courtesy of the staff...the night deskman (please thank him, he worked on the night of the 25th of Jan) literally shook my hand and thanked me for "giving us a chance". This morning another deskman went through the breakfast room with a smile on his face and a "good morning" to everyone. The cook? did the same thing. Definitely would recommend this hotel! I honestly hate to leave!
