“Nasty Rooms”
Reviewed July 18, 2007

We walked in off the street (no reservation) on our way back home to Georgia. The motels next door were booked so we tried it. The lady at the front desk was really nice and gave us they key to a room with 2 double beds. Things didn't turn bad until we went inside the room. The second we approached the door it was covered with reddish-purple stains (not sure what) and paint spackle stains. We still went in to look at what we'd just paid $65 for. It was awful. The room was dingy, dark and very dirty. The floor had obviously not been vaccuumed in months, if ever. Crumbs covered the nightstand. I pulled down the comforters to look at the sheets and almost vomited. One comforter had a huge urine stain on and the sheets/pillows to both beds were covered with hairs and stains of varying colors. Oh and 2 pubic hairs were on the telephone. It was late at night but I refused to stay there. Everything in Birmingham was full that night so we ended up driving a little outside town to Pell City where we were able to find nice, clean accomodations. But the Park Inn at the airport in Birmingham is disguisting. Do not recommend to anyone for any reason.

walked up to front desk and asked for a room with two double beds. The desk clerk was short with us from the start, but I was respectful. We made a deal and I was handed a key. Room was on the other side of the building. Walked in - King Size bed and a couch, no double beds. Went back, explained the situation, repeated request for 2 beds and was handed a new key, no apology. Drove back to the new room, what do you guys know ?, king size bed again. Went back to the front desk the clerk was not the least bit apologetic and offered no explanation, just looked at me. Ask for and got my money back and found a hotel about 1/2 mile away for twenty bucks less and it was nicer and I had my two beds on the first try.

In town for an AAU basketball tournament. Our one night stay at Park Inn was not that good. Although some rooms have been somewhat updated, others were not. For our somewhat updated room, there were several dents in the drywall, cob webs hanging from the ceiling, partially painted exterior door, dirt/grease stains around the trim and windows. Too, this hotel is not in the nicest part of town. I suggest you spend the extra $10-$20 and stay in Mtn. Brook or Trussville area. When your hotel is located next to a Motel and your hotel is fenced in, you know it cannot be that nice! Overall hotel is dated and not that clean. Spend the money and go elsewhere!!
