    • 6.0.Good

      It gets the job done.

      Overall, I felt like this was a 5 out of 10. The room was clean, but it feels like a very dated hotel. When I visit Birmingham in the future, I would pay more for something newer and updated.

      Dog smell

      The room was actually pretty clean except for the dog smell. When I asked about it I was told them didn’t allow dogs. The cleaning lady just laughed and handed me a bottle of febreeze to spray. Apparently there is no maintenance tech at night as we were handed a plunger. Food was just ok. They were out of wash clothes until later in the night. With that being said the staff was nice.

      Great stay

      The trip was very emotional for me. My mom is ill and I went to help. It turned out bad,because she didn't want me there and told me to get out after 1 day. I drove over 1000 miles to see her. My stay at the hotel helped to ease some of the pain.

      Stopped here on our way to Gulf Coast. Location was very convenient. Hotel is old with very few updates. Beds were not comfortable at all. Rooms had a musty smell. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good.

      Disgusting

      Disgusting. Nasty. Filthy. The manager did come to make the beds over with CLEAN sheets , however possibly the doo doo stain on the shower wall wasn’t wiped! Absolutely disgusting horrible experience.
