If all you want is a comfy bed and hot shower near 85, this hotel will serve. If you expect a few amenities, go somewhere else. The hotel is old and dingy so it's hard to tell if it's clean. There were no extra towels or washcloths, no lotion, only one packet of coffee (regular,which I used the first day)...

Confirmation of travel confirmation was obtained on 8/23/2014. However, my card was still charged on 10/6/2014 for that cancelled stay. Upon calling the hotel, we have gotten unhelpful staff members telling us it was not cancelled even though i have an email confirmation with a cancellation number included.

Traveling for a quick trip to New Orleans, chose Opelika as a layover stop before completing journey the next day, needed a break for a 9 hour trip, we are older now and tough to take that drive! The hotel night attendant was sweet and helpful, good at multi tasking. At night the parking lot and coming into the property...
