I stayed at the Best Western Plus Bessemer Hotel & Suites back in 04/2016 when I was relocating from the left coast to the right coast. The Best Western Plus in Bessemer was a wonderful experience. What made it wonderful? The hotel was recently renovated, so the entire hotel, interior, and exterior as well as the rooms were nicely done....

We stayed at this BW plus for 4 days, while visiting in B'Ham. The area was quiet, the Hotel was clean and well run. The Staff was helpful and gave us good directions when we needed them. We have made plans to use this hotel next year when we return.

We parked our truck in the back of this hotel and there were shady people standing around the hotel. As we were walking up to the hotel, music was blaring from the lobby. The lady at the front desk apologized for the loud noise. We were barely able to hear each other talk. The rooms were nice. And breakfast was...

We stayed two nights at this hotel over Thanksgiving week. It was the halfway point between our destination, so we stayed one night on our way out and one night on our way back. The value of this hotel is great. Clean rooms, good breakfast and great staff.

Denham Springs, Louisiana
Reviewed November 27, 2016

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times. Quality of accomodations and staff service is always good, though the price is a bit higher than (IMO) warranted. Breakfast was typical budget hotel fare: fried "eggs", paper-thin bacon (ran out quickly), biscuits and other breads, cereals, waffles, coffee and juice. Game day, so the hotel was pretty full.
