My husband and I stayed in this hotel in April 2012 and again in January 2014. The hotel is very nice overall, the rooms are spacious and well appointed. The swimming pool was nice as well. I always inquire whether the room windows can be opened to let fresh air in. At our first stay in the hotel, we were... More

The hotel was nice but more expensive that other Quality Inns that we had stayed in on this trip. It was during Hurricane Matthew and many were coming inland to stay so we had a hard time finding a room. Was more expensive than most Quality Inns and we wondered if it had to do with many other hotels sold... More

If ratings were based on what you really should expect for the money, then I'd give this hotel a 4 or 4.5. I spent roughly $80, which was a pretty good deal in Birmingham on a game weekend. The hotel is in a great location, its on 280, which is a VERY BUSY highway. The good news is that there's... More

We had a good stay here last year, and decided to stay here again as Birmingham is a half-way point for our annual trip East. It was just as good as last year, basic clean hotel, great for travelers needing a clean & quiet location. Good breakfast & it was very economical. Will definitely make this our regular stop.

I truly feel sorry for the owner of this hotel. It is a very clean, updated hotel and it is obvious that they have invested a great amount to make this place as nice as possible. Their problem is their staff! It all started with the front desk person that was working on Friday evening, June 17th 2016 around 10:00pm.... More
