This hotel is clean and got the job done. I was in town for a football game and we were not in the room very much. I didn't eat the free afternoon snacks or breakfast, but it was a nice option if needed. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful in giving us a room away from the interstate....

Many choices. The sweet ladies did such a good job preparing the food and making everything look inviting. The hotel is in a convenient location....

Not attentive to requests, stated we were required to check out on Saturday when our reservation was made through Sunday. Staff overlooked important details of billing. When confronted about $415 charge on a points stay staff said "the charge should fall off in 3-5 business days, sorry"

My son and I stayed here when we came down for a University of Alabama game. Hotel rooms are dated but clean. Pool was nice just wish weather was a bit warmer. My son loved the breakfast they provided each morning. I wish it was easier to get to. With not being from around the area the street hotel is...

This hotel is borderline run-down in appearance and I wouldn't select it again if I have other better options. The beds were a bit uncomfortable and some of the lights in our room didn't operate properly.

I made a "free cancelation" reservation on hotels.com and was a bit miffed that without warning my card was immediately charged the full amount. But thats on hotels.com or maybe on me for not paying close enough attention to "fine print". I arrived at 9pm and was greeted by a nice lady at the front desk. My room had a...

I found out by accident tonight that I was double charged - BOTH by the hotel (well it's really a motel) and Hotels.com. They BOTH charged me for the same reservation. Upon calling the hotel,Tracy gave me the the unacceptable reason of "the check-in clerk was new". I'm sorry, this is just not good enough for me - what if...

Exceeded expectations. I usually stay at the Capstone on campus but it was booked up. While this hotel does not compare to the Capstone it offered nice clean rooms, a very good hot breakfast, and close proximity to the UofA and reasonable rates.

Our stay was very pleasant. They are PET Friendly. The room was very clean and modern. The staff was friendly, professional, and the price was very reasonable. The free breakfast was better than most of the more expensive facilities.
