So confused on how to rate this place. Room was half clean. Bathroom was clean thank god I had not planned on using the kitchen. Sheets were clean but the bedside table was broke. Furniture very old and not in an antique cute kinda way. Gated area, but wondered if they were keeping people in or out. Someone was smoking... More

The Rime Hotel management cancelled my reservation within 5 days of my arrival after over 2 months of advance booking. Meanwhile other friends staying the same weekend were announcing a couple weeks prior that "rooms had become available" for them. The manager had been accepted newer reservations while kicking upwards of ten other individuals' reservations that had been placed beforehand.... More

I booked and read reviews after, so you can imagine after seeing all these horrible reviews, i braced myself for the worst. It was not too bad. It was a good place to stay for a good price. I was not impressed with breakfast, and the guy in the breakfast area creeped me out... The bed was not as comfortable... More

This has to be the dirtiest and most run down hotel I have ever stayed in. Being Talladega weekend my choices were limited and almost every hotel was booked except this one. There is a reason for this. We arrived early but were able to check in to the room, #101, which was down in almost a walk out basement... More

I am a seasoned traveler & promise you, this was THE WOST hotel experience of my life! I arrived at the Birmingham airport at 9:30pm on 10/8/15. I called the hotel to request the shuttle, and was told it would be about 10 minutes. 45 minutes, and 3 phone calls later, this old, ratty, dirty van pulls up -- the... More

The A/C didn't work, there were dead cockroaches still on the floor and the floor was dirty. It also smelled musty from the lack of A/C. WE left and found a different place, others checking in at the second hotel had also just left the rime garden inn.

I am in charge of making arrangements when we have employees staying here in town. We have used Rime Garden Inn for a few of our long term stays as well as short term. Richard has always been helpful when I need to change a room reservation or make a new last minute reservation. Any issues we have had (which... More

If you are in the Birmingham, AL area please give Rime Garden a call. Their facility is nice and clean and the staff are so friendly. The rooms are nice and centrally located. Very affordable. We stay at Rime Garden every time we are in town.

I've stayed at Rime multiple times and have always been pleased. The room size has always meet my needs for each visit. The beds are comfortable and a quiet environment for undisturbed sleep. Whenever I've needed wifi reset(those things happen) the staff has fixed these issues quickly.
