I can't give this place high enough marks. The room was comfortable and quite, the breakfast was excellent, and the location was first-rate. You are directly along side a mall, and several restaurants. Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby and other business are across the main road by the hotel. Plus you are just south of downtown Birmingham, and all the sights the city and surrounding area has to offer. The staff was superb. My eight-year-old son is named Carlton. He asked the manager about the hotel's name being like his, and they hit it off together superbly. At the end of a long trip, it made our day.
The hotel was clean, and in a rather safe looking area. The ground floor appeared to be just a tad bit underground, and I guess it could make a better-than-nothing storm shelter, if need be. There was an afternoon manager's reception, and we had the best breakfast of our trip, consisting of our choice of eggs, gravy, biscuits, sasuage, cereal, milk, juices and fruit.
I cannot comment on the indoor pool because it was closed for repairs. If it was like everything else there, it would be first rate, too.
The next time we are in Birmingham, this will be the place for us to stay. I highly recommend it.
