“Good location and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

We chose this Comfort Inn for its location--close to the family homestead for a family reunion. We were leery of the other reviews of it not being clean, but in our experience, it was clean. but not without some shortcomings.

When we arrived there was a mop and bucket in the middle of the lobby for no discernible reason--a bad first impression. But the room was nice--we weren't expectiong Hampton Inn class here and it was satisfactory. It was adequately cleaned the second day except the trash can wasn't emptied. Bed and bathroom both clean.

Liked the free Wall Street Journal newspapers and the free breakfast.

But desk staff needed to be more professional---when we checked out, both were outside taking a smoke break, leaving the desk unattended--not good.

Overall, we'd stay there again, given its location and proce. But one bad stay here next time would make us consider the venerable old Birmingham Motel around the corner as an alternative. I hope the competition will keep this Comfort Inn on its toes!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms were very convenient.

We stayed on May 13 for one night, choosing the location for the pet friendly nature. The location is good and there are places to eat nearby. The room was not cleaned as well as expected, especially the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the TV worked fine. Breakfast was adequate, average for Comfort Inn. The A/C was set to 68, a little cold for our taste.
Not the best stay but not the worst either.

I've stayed at this Comfort Inn before many times since 2005. I never had a problem until this visit.
I stayed there 5 nights. When I returned to my room the first night at 8PM after leaving the room at 6AM the room had not been made up. Neither had 3 of my colleagues rooms. I went downstairs to get fresh towels and was told the housekeeper had just "missed our rooms."
The last night I was there I again left the room at 6AM and returned at 930PM. The bed was made this time but the dirty towels were still in the bathroom and there was actually more trash in the waste paper baskets than when I left. Again I was told as the hotel was "full" she just didn't get around to it. She also left the A/C on full blast when she made the bed. It was so cold in the room I had to wear my coat to bed!
I am Diamond Status with Choice Hotels and this is unacceptable. I'll stay at the Hampton Inn next time I'm in Birmingham.

Great value- we enjoyed the suite with separated living/bedroom, big bathroom and kitchenette, plus pet friendly. Worked perfect for us! Nice and helpful service, too. Would recommend, for sure.

A satisfactory choice for a comfortable stay; is overall very clean and well maintained. Courteous and friendly staff. Conveniently located to the Interstate, and in an area that offers many choices for dining and shopping.

Hotel looks great from the outside, still looked great inside, went to room TV only had sound on half the chanels. moved to diferent room TV worked but the chanel that was supost to be HBO was hitting me up to save a soul or a church or something. Woke up with pain in my neck. bed was very uncomfortable and not sure the linen had be washed or changed. Why dont all hotels have a REF and Microwave in the room this hotel did not!

*UPON ARRIVAL* As we turned the bedding down to go to sleep we realized that although the bed was made, the linens had been used! Management NEVER ARRIVED to change them.

*SECOND DAY* After spending the morning at Barber's Raceway, we returned at 2:30pm. The dirty sheets had been removed from our bed, however the comforter, blankets and pillows appeared to have been thrown all around. Our 13 year old son had left his Ipod on the nightstand, the IPOD HAD BEEN STOLEN. Housekeeping arrived holding a chicken drumstick in her hand and a mouth full of food!!! She proceeded to speak with the food in her mouth making the following statement "I don't know about no Ipod, what is it? I was told the room was a check-out so I LEFT THE DOOR OPEN!!!"
Our luggage was stacked in a corner, our clothes in the closet and our toiletries spread out on the vanity yet she claims the room was a check-out??
The room was never cleaned, I watched her finish making the beds, however pillow cases were never put on, towels were never replaced, trash cans were left unlined and there was no coffee for us the next morning. The housekeeper LIED to management about leaving our door open and she LIED to us about her paperwork showing a "check-out".

Apparently this hotel is attempting to renovate, however there is a very large DUMP SITE in the back parking lot filled with all of the depris they are removing! If you love having your personal Items STOLEN and a DIRTY ROOM then this is the HOTEL FOR YOU. Everyone else BEWARE.

Room Tip: DO NOT STAY HERE, there are too many other options
