I was not expecting much and got more than I thought!! We stayed for three nights. We arrived late and were greeted by two sweet front desk employees. We were given an end room, which was nice since the noise level was zero. The bed was comfortable. I brought my own pillow so I can not rate those. The bedding has been updates from the photos and gives it a modern feel. There is a mini fridge and microwave in the room. The room is also very large and there is a small couch and coffee table area along with a desk and several dresser drawers. The price was right and on game days I would pay more vs staying in Hoover. It is right next to WalMart and Sams Club. They do have a breakfast but for me I passed on it and went down the road to Panera. I would recommend staying at this hotel and I will return when coming to see my child at school.
