My daughter and I needed a hotel that would take our 10 pound poodle, in Montgomery. Not many choices. Based on the location we chose the Staybridge Suites. We were a little apprehensive, as we had never stayed at one of these properties before, and dog-friendly hotels are not always the cleanest. Plus this property has smoking rooms, which really concerned us, as my daughter is very allergic to cigarette smoke. What a pleasant surprise!! The hotel is very attractive, with well maintained grounds and common areas, and spotless rooms. The suite was huge, with a full kitchen (not that we really needed it), and a very comfortable living space. The room was nicely appointed with good linens and towels, plenty of lights and even a ceiling fan. The only negative regarding the room was the bed spread. I much prefer duvet covers that can be washed between guests to a bed spread that you never can be sure when it was cleaned. But we simply folded it up and placed it in a corner; the bed had plenty of linens to keep us comfortable, plus an extra, clean blanket in the closet. The staff was great. Each and every person we came in contact with was pleasant and friendly. The breakfast was good, with lots of choices. We used the business center a couple of times and found it well appointed. There was always someone working to keep the property spotless, weather blowing leaves outside, cleaning up the dog-walk area, or wiping tables in the dining room. Never once did we smell cigarette smoke. We will certainly stay at this property the next time we find ourselves in Montgomery and may even try a Staybridge Suites in another location!
