We recently stayed at the Best Western Carlton Suites near Birmingham, Alabama and we are very glad that we did! I located the property using Trip Advisor and a third-party booking offered us a terrific price ... but, we hesitated because we weren't sure how adding additional days, or leaving early, would be handled should the case arise. So, I... More

Picked this location for the purpose to eat at Landry's Seafood which was across the street. That was convenient but it was hard to find. Glad there was still a little daylight left. As soon as we arrive, the manager and a helper were exchanging out the tv remotes in every room. We just wanted to unload our things and... More

Thank you for your stay. I'm sorry to hear you had a hard time finding the hotel... sometimes "Siri" will send you all around the world! :-) With it being summer time the hotel is normally business, so to ensure the hotel maintains functioning equipment replacing items can sometimes cause an inconvenience, and we do apologize for having to change...

We were on a 2 week road drive driving from up north to down south. We decided to stay here last min. There were 4 of us. We choose the pull out couch bed and King size bed. Our room was clean and roomy, bathroom decent size, we had a kitchenette room. Staff offered great southern hospitality. Managers were active... More

Thank you for your stay. We are thrilled to know that you all enjoyed the sleeping room, manager's reception, view of the pool and great southern hospitality while visiting Birmingham!! I'd say you all had a memorable stay, and I'm so happy to hear you didn't leave this great city without visiting the Civil Rights Memorial and Museum. We hope... More

Stayed in a king suite. I found it much smaller than most King suites I've frequented, but the room was very clean. The tv was halfway between the two rooms, so the two rooms were practically just one with a three foot dividing wall at the head side of the bed. Free breakfast was very good. I expected a somewhat... More

Truly, these folks go above and beyond anything I have ever seen, and I travel a lot!! From the owner constantly checking up to make sure you are totally happy, to the great rooms (SPACIOUS), this place shocked me for the price! My military unit was there, and we were practicing some music in the conference room. While we were... More

Clean rooms and lobby. Nice breakfast. Loved having more room than a typical hotel room. A place to sit other than the bed. Ideal location to everything we wanted to do and see in Birmingham. Great for our small family of 3. We had the king and our daughter had the pull out sofa.

We had a group of 41 rooms for 9 nights and we were blown away with the level of service the staff provided throughout our entire stay. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to give us 5-star service. They even treated our group to a pizza lunch! The rooms are super clean and... More

We stayed here on our way to panama city beach. The first hotel that I have stayed in that gave you a bottle of water at check-in. Rooms were clean and quiet. Breakfast was very good. it was busy but they did their best to keep everything stocked.

We stayed here three nights for a business trip in the King Whirlpool Suite. The staff were friendly and the room was spacious and clean. We had an issue with the checkout time and the manager was very gracious in working out a compromise with me. There was also a billing error, but the management corrected it promptly and with...
