“Very good...kind of surprised”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

For a low cost, last minute option I was expecting the worst and was quite surprised. Other reviews reflect some cleanliness issues but I did not note any of those. The staff was friendly. The room was fine. I felt I got more than I paid for as I have stayed in MUCH worse for MUCH more.
The Good
Location - enough restaurants around and close to the Warrior Dash that we were partaking in
Staff - friendly and helpful

The Not As Good
AC was loud
Tile in lobby was cracked and needed attention

Room Tip: I stayed on the ground floor and, while I had a view of a hill, it was quiet

I was not impressed with this hotel. When my friend and I first entered our room, we noticed a "mystery stain" near the ceiling of the bathroom, later determined as feces. The smoke alarm was also beeping when we entered the room so we had made a call to the front desk to get both problems resolved. They were very prompt in cleaning the stain and changing the batteries in the smoke alarm; the employee was also very polite. After he had left though, I noticed another questionable stain on the bed skirting. I thought about bringing that to the attention of the front desk but we decided to let it go. Overall, the staff was very polite and the location was perfect for our visit, but the condition of our room was just unacceptable. I have stayed in worse hotels, but paying $220 for our two nights was ridiculous for what this room was. I will probably not stay there again.

We stay here whenever we're in the area. The staff if friendly & helpful, the room is comfortable, the breakfast is quite adequate. The location is right off the interstate but quiet. It's next door to a Wal-Mart and near several restaurants.

Would have preferred the availability of an exercise room and a computer access in the lobby and hot items in the breakfast area. Otherwise, the stay was pleasant and convenient location to the places we planned to visit in Birmingham.
