“Very low end motel - only motel in Arab so no incentive to be decent”
Reviewed November 17, 2009

This is a low end motel (not a hotel). The room I stayed in had been broken into and instead of replacing the heavily damaged door frame, it was patched back together. As a result of the damage or maybe just lack of maintenance, the deadbolt lock did not work. The bathtub was very slow to drain so I had to stand in 1/2 inch of water while/after taking a shower.

The breakfast is nothing to write home as there is not much selection and much of what they had was the ultra cheap no-name value brand (not even store brand) products from a grocery store. It was the cheapest breakfast that I have ever had at a motel/hotel.

They also use the typical cheap motel bedspreads that are mostly likely not cleaned very often unlike decent hotels that now use the white bed covers so they can be changed and cleaned regularly. The same goes for the shower curtains.

After saying there one night, I opted to stay 15 miles/30 minutes north in Huntsville for the duration of my stay in Arab and subsequent visits.

As a new manager to this property I would like to apologize for the condition of this room. We have worked dilligently to repair the maintenance issues at this property since my arrival. It is very important to us that our guests experience a clean, well maintained place to rest. Once an issue has been brought to our attention we will gladly move a guest to another room and begin proper maintenance on the problem.

The staff at the Jameson Inn in Arab, AL was so courteous and helpful. The went out of there way to help me find my way around the city and even helped me to find some leisure areas to enjoy while in the area. The breakfast area was clean and stocked well. The room was clean as well. I will most definately come back to this hotel as well as recommed it to anyone that will be coming to the Arab area

Everytime I travel I try and stay at a Jameson Inn. The people are always nice. I really like the Jameson Inn of Arab because of the staff, they are always so friendly. One time when I stayed they put a special card in my room just to welcome me back. The card read "you had a choice and you choose us and we appreciate you!" It was signed by the whole staff! I know they may do that for others, but it sure makes you feel special.
