I always stay at HIs. And these had to be the best beds and linens of any HI I've stayed at. The rooms were quiet and clean. Easy access to restaurants, gas, and interstate. Disabled accessible for my mom. If traveling through AL again, would def stay here.

The hotel was nice. Stayed a few nights. The continental breakfast was great and had different items that other places I've stayed at didn't have as far as breakfast items. Room was clean and had the most comfortable bed I've slept on in years. The only thing I would recommend is that they somehow keep towels used and washed separately... More

We stopped while traveling from Dauphin Island back to IN. The room was huge and very clean. Friendly staff and great breakfast. The shower was heavenly! Didn't want to get out. We didn't swim, but the pool looked clean, just small. Workout room was in good shape, too. Overall, a nice stay!

We stopped over here both on our way to New Orleans and on our way home. The staff was great especially the breakfast attendant she was very pleasant. The property seemed to be going through a small renovation and our room w as excellent on both sides of our trip. Keep up the good work.

I was very surprised to find this hotel looking almost new and very modern. I was just in Europe and find this hotel much like a European style hotel.
