“Plus smoking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Very disappointed with the condition. Obviously, the building is old, and smoking is allowed, even in the elevator apparently, so there's that odor. But the carpet is old & smelly, the bathroom is smelly too. Not very conducive to a restful stay. It just doesn't measure up. If you are familiar with the quality of a Best Western Plus, this will not meet your expectations.

This hotel is very over rated on the reviews. We found the hotel to be in disrepair and not very clean. After spilling a little syrup on the table in the eating area, the napkin was "black" those tables had not been wiped down for weeks. Amenities were poor. If this is representative of Best Western we will not be choosing that brand again. The breakfast is not as advertised. It is convenient to the highway but that is it's best feature.

We had another great experience staying at the Gardendale Best Western. The staff is very pleasant and welcoming. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. The breakfast has a variety of selection that can satisfy most appetites. We have been making this our go to place for over three years and have always been satisfied with the stay.

We had a very enjoyable stay and plan to go back again when we are in the area. We were there for meetings. The hotel staff was always friendly. The Breakfast was fine and filling. The staff was always helpful when we were looking for something such as a place to eat or a trip to the bank or to a drugstore for supplies. They were always friendly and very nice.

Stayed here one night when in Birmingham, AL for the BBVA Compass Bowl. It was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would recommend it for anyone. It was also very convenient to the interstate and Birmingham.

I arrived late on January 3 and had no trouble checking in. The room was very clean with updated decor. Very quiet, and just off the interstate.Will definitely stop there in the future and would recommend this hotel.

The 'Best Western PLUS Gardendale, AL was one of the most pleasant stays. My son and I were very pleased with the location. The surrounding area offered a lot of restaurant choices. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. We will be staying at Best Western Plus again very soon. We were attending a wrestling tournament several miles away, but the drive to this particular location was easy. Another mother and son booked a room after hearing where we were staying. The motel was quiet and very welcoming.
