First, the Refrigerator had no shelves in it so it did not hold very much and things kept falling out and the door would not stay shut. Secondly, there was not that much water pressure in the bath room or bedroom vanity sink. The swimming pool was shut down so no one could swim or lay out to tan. Thirdly,...

Slightly off the beaten path. Stayed on way to PCB Florida. Rooms were ok, but priced accordingly. Hotel clerk was unfamiliar with the town and had no dinner recommendations having only lived in Hartselle for six months ???. It appeared that a portion of rooms were permanent guests. Offered breakfast but we passed... Pool wasn't yet opened (in May).

Very attractive exterior units resemble a "Santa Fe" motif. The rooms are very clean and sufficiently modern. The area is extremely safe and quiet. The motel is only about 3 miles from Interstate 65 which is great. The staff seems friendly enough. Perfect place to stay that is affordable clean and safe which is very hard to find in Alabama!

I would have given this hotel a 3.5 rating if I could have since I would have rated it "Good" if that category existed. Sometimes it's nice to stay in an older, ma and pa type hotel. This one is a nice one. Our room was basic, nothing at all fancy, but perfect for an overnight stay. The hotel is...

Large sink area & clean bathroom. Dominoes pizza even delivers. It's an outside...

Hi, stayed one night in this hotel and although the room was halfway decent, the woman checking us in continually wiped her runny nose with her hand. I asked if she had a cold and she said it was allergies, and I felt like telling her to get a Kleenex! I didn't want to touch anything she had touched due...

We stayed recently at this hotel and had a fantastic experience. The hotel has been newly renovated and is very clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was kind and helpful. The price of the hotel was so minimal that I was concerned about the type of room that we would get but she allowed me to view the room first....

“Don't let them put you next to the ice machine, There is no door to block the noise and it is LOUD. I think it was room 117. It was also a smaller room because the ice room took a corner away from the room.”
