I had read a couple of these bad reviews and almost didn't stay here. The Hampton was full and we had three families of us that we're in town for a baseball tourney.

The bad is: the double bed rooms which we needed were full size instead of queen, and the breakfast area is a little small and was crowded due to baseball tourneys in the area.

The good is: hotel is very clean. Rooms
are very clean. breakfast is very good with anything you could want. No way to describe how nice and courteous the staff is. We came in after playing late game and the owner told us he would leave the pool open as long as we were quiet so that the kids could swim.

We feel fortunate that the Hampton was full or we would have been there for around $25 more per night. No way we could have received better service and we will stay here next time we are in town.

We had a unexpected stop due to weather on our way to Florida. The FBO at the airport recommended the Quality Inn. Once we got there we realized we had stayed there about 5 years ago. It's a no frills hotel but it's clean, the staff is friendly and very helpful. We got there late and they opened up the juice bar for us so the boys could have something to drink other than soda or tap water. The breakfast included was better than most of the time it's included in your stay. The eggs and sausage were good. The boys had their waffles. A nice selection of fresh fruit, pastries and cereal. The woman working in the kitchen was very sweet and helpful. Almost forgot to mention that the beds were comfortable too. For the price, and the quality of the service alone, we will stay here again next time we have to stop in the Birmingham area.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back are more quiet.

Our stay here was perfect. We stopped on our way to Panama City Beach, FL for one night. It is exactly 1/2 way from Nashville. Room was clean and the people at the front desk were very nice and helpful. Good location near the interstate (we heard no interstate noise).

Our agent booked online 2 months in advance, secured by credit card. We happened to stop in few hours early for check in, and our reservation had been "Cancelled by a third party" Our selected room and discounts no longer available. We were lucky we stopped in early because roms were filling fast due to the Tallafega races. We were accomodated with a room however, no discounts and no early cheek in. Decent rooms, breakfast and support staff. Just beware of the"bait and switch"

The room was clean and comfortable. The fridge, microwave and sink separate from bathroom are nice touches you don't always get in cheap motels. The hot breakfast was basic but good. Friendly staff.

There are no interior corridors. Personally I like the convenience of having a door to the parking lot in safe areas like this one, but some people prefer an inside entrance.

My big complaint is the internet service. I had a good wireless signal, but a slow connection. If internet service is important to you I'd suggest staying elsewhere. It works, but for high bandwidth business users you might get frustrated.

Otherwise I'd recommend the Quality Inn as a decent choice for staying on a budget.

There were two very nice employees that assisted my church family and I on this trip..They were Lindsay and Alicia, but there was one HORRIBLE employee that made my trip end on a sour note. His name was Nouman Malik. He was VERY RUDE, VERY DISCOURTEOUS, and showed ABSOLUTELY NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. The situation was so bad that we had to get the police involved. I give Malik two thumbs down!!

The hotel itself on the other hand was very clean and nice
