This is a very nice hotel I travel all over the country for work, so I’m constantly in different hotels, and this is definitely one of the better ones I’ve been in The rooms are very nice, comfortable, and kept very clean

The whole hotel is very nice and clean The staff are superbly kind and helpful, and will go out of their way to accommodate you The free breakfasts and dinners are great too It’s not fine dining, but it’s free and tasty, what more could you want? And the complimentary 3 drinks a night is a very nice touch, I always enjoyed myself at dinner

Make sure to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your hotel This web site will compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms much cheaper than others! You’re welcome :)! This resort is the best rated in this area

I’ve been coming here for a long time If you stay for a few days you definitely will love it I’m sure!Absolutely loved staying here Lovely warm welcome We had a suite and it was fantastic, rooms were big and had everything we needed to feel comfortable Complimentary food and 3 free drinks each Would definitely stay here again

A.N. Explores

The people that work here are so so nice and friendly They’re happy to help if you need anything Definitely made our stay that much better

While the rooms could use updating (replace chairs, & carpeting) the rooms, beds, and bathroom was spotless The beds were very comfortable I was so thankful to have a very clean room The shower has a wall hanging pump for body wash, shampoo and soap which was nice as well as a blow dryer Mini fridge and microwave inside the dresser furniture piece A good hot breakfast & dinner buffet, 3 alcoholic beverages included during the dinner, & there’s fountain sodas I don’t drink but they were so nice to make us virgin margaritas and it doesn’t count against your 3 drinks card Pop corn wasn’t good and didn’t have any butter or flavor, would be great if they could get some buttery popcorn for the next visit The hot tub has some powerful jets which felt good, and a large swimming pool that goes from inside to outside There’s a pool towel area inside to quickly grab a towel I felt very safe staying here, it’s a nice area We will definitely be back when visiting the area again

I have been employed with Hilton in the past and have enjoyed working dual property Hampton’s in Tuscaloosa, AL for 3 years I applied for the Night Auditor position the last week in Feb and was hired on 02/23/22 (terminated on 04/29/2022)

The Assistant General Manager, Marcus Gordon, called me at 9:00 pm on a Sunday evening to schedule an interview That was the first red flag but I needed employment so I did not make it a huge deal I was employed at this property for 90 days before being wrongfully terminated The General Manager, Karen Jacob, fired me about 30 minutes shy of 3:00pm after working a night audit shift that morning The management team at this property is defective and below par to say the least There is no communication between the team members and management and it shows In the 3 months that I was hired here not 1 of the employees from any department had ANYTHING nice to say about Karen There has been multiple accusations of stealing of money by management and maintenance from numerous staff members I experienced 3 different encounters of theft of my personal items while being employed at this location The GM does not directly deal with confrontation, she doesn’t come out of her office and will literally, deliberately ignore guests concerns and allow her phone to ring with no intentions of answering The management team at this property portrays a facade of concern and compassion for their team members but that is most certainly not the case Marcus, the assistant GM, faithfully gossips about team members and constantly makes jokes about terminating members of the staff I would never in a million years recommend working at this property to my worst enemy If I could leave anything lower than 1 star I would leave the rating in the negative

Belinda Forman

The room was very clean I was disappointed that they didn’t serve a free breakfast and they didn’t offer coffee in the lobby throughout the day The coffee maker in the room did not work but then when I was able to pour water through it it was nasty

It was like dirty and nastyThat was very comfortable The room was very nice I would stay here again anytime

Dawn Swinford

999% of the employees were super friendly and nice Wasn’t too excited about the waitress, but she was they only one, and was quite busy, so I understood and won’t complain

The waffle I ordered was undercooked, but again, I didn’t complain Was disappointed that there was no continental breakfastThere was no hand soap of any kind in our bathroom Wasn’t happy about thatWhen checking out, my husband had a couple minor complaints about not having enough towels or pillows The lady at the desk said that they didn’t realize that there was more than 1 guest in that room, since there was only 1 name on the card Uhm WHAT? Really? When I made the reservation, I specifically said it was for 3 adults and 1 child That’s why I had to pay extra More people Overall, not really happy I expected more from the name Hilton It was ok But still everyone was super nice and friendly and helpful

We go into town a little early, but our room was ready at 1pm and very clean We were very appreciative to check in early in the middle of our soccer tournament day At the end of the day we enjoyed the pool for several hours and at dinner poolside

The area was very clean The kids had some hot chocolate in the lobby on the way up to the room Thanks so much to the night staff on 8/20 that was very patient with our kiddos The gentleman at the front was so kind and helpfulOur room was very clean The beds were cozy and the air conditioning was cold It was very spacious for my daughter and I The bathroom area was also very cleanBreakfast the next day started at 7, but hot coffee was available at 615 The breakfast area was crowded but there was mostly enough seating for everyone Yogurt, breads, eggs, sausage, waffles, fresh blueberries, and waffles were availableWe had a great stay Thanks so much!

Amy LaBellarte

Had a wonderful stay there! We traveled from Chicago so my daughter could visit friends in the area Got there on Thursday night and the girl behind the desk was very nice Rooms were exceptionally clean

We stayed til Saturday morning and then traveled on to Louisiana for a wrestling show my husband was working On our way back from Louisiana we had to stop back to drop a friend off and we had no problems staying there again The guy behind the desk this time went above and beyond to accommodate us He saw I had knee brace on and offered me a wheelchair to get up to our room Rooms again were exceptionally clean Such a nice place to stay My family and I have decided that the next time we visit we will definitely stay there again

Shawanda Thompson Chapman

The hotel was ok and some the staff were nice However PLEASE pay attention the your credit card statement once you’ve checked out My card was charged FIVE times for ONE room

Once contacted the manager on duty apologized but was uninterested in explaining why or how this had happened He asked if I give five days and call back to see if the charges were gone Just horrible in my opinion I’m a Hilton Honors member and he offered nothing for the inconvenience that this has caused me

This is the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed at!! The indoor pool was closed due to the pump being out That’s the only thing I can say that was disappointing But the hot tub was open

The rooms are large, they have a decent breakfast I do like the fact that no pets are allowed unlike many other Marriott properties I’m allergic to pet hair So this was refreshing I could breathe!!! Will most definitely stay here again!!

Daniel Cochran

I wouldn’t call this an exceptional Marriott hotel I didn’t have any Shampoo and Conditioner in my room I caught a member of housekeeping in the hall and the gentleman who’s name I did not catch had an exceptional attitude and great personality and promptly delivered both items to my room

The front desk upon arrival and departure were pleasant, welcoming, and friendly The breakfast cook was a little grumpy but, from my days of food delivery to Marriott Hotels, this was somewhat commonThe elevator floor had a broken tile and missing grout which is something I’m not used to seeing in a Marriott hotel but life happensI would still rate my overall experience 5 stars Courteous staff, clean room, clean gym, clean swimming pool and hot tub areas Applebee’s happy hour, Lowe’s, and a Convenience store next door were all plus’s

Margaret Cook

The association with Way Parking was misrepresented Fairfield Inn Airport Parking lends to being located near airport It is actually 13 miles from airport

Advertised free shuttle to airport which was no longer available but didnt know until actually chech in no parking attentant onrequested refund was turned down because policy says have to cancel before check in date makes me wonder about other services in hotel as well as Way parkingproperty

Staff was super friendly and helpful Hotel is in a great location and off of the main road, so it feels like a “getaway” The pool was fantastic

They have a basketball court and even will provide you with a basketball, which made my kids very happy Room was spotless and quiet Bathroom was spotless and the water was nice and hot with great water pressure Thank you for making our trip wonderful!

Robert McDonald

Pulling up the place looks great Nice building and grounds Check in and lobby are nice

Staff is amazing, very welcoming The bad is the rooms They are dated and dirty We had just drove 8hrs on the way to the beach and needed to stop for the night We let our twins play on the floor after checking for anything laying around After 20 mins they had black feet and knees So time for a bath Tub needs resurfaced Overall it’s OK, breakfast was great They just need a little help with cleaning and some updates Beds were clean and comfortable Flood light outside bedroom was odd but blackout shades worked well

Tim Grass

The suite was spacious and clean Seconds away from groceries, Starbucks, gas and more The staff was extremely friendly and helpful

The complimentary breakfast was better than many other hotels Pre-maid egg omelettes with veggies, sausage, potatoes, fresh waffles with chocolate chips or walnuts or strawberries, pastries, cereal, grits, etc A great stay

Chelsea Rand

Let me start by saying this was my first time staying at a place like this! When I pulled up I thought it was an apartment complex not a “hotel” per say! But it was nice and perfect for a family trip The staff that we came in contact with our first night there for check in were AMAZING I can’t remember her name but she just started recently! She was bubbly and very sweet and made me excited to get a room there But the staff the next day not so much! Our shower was TERRIBLE! The shower head was broken all the way off and the water shot out with very high pressure and it was crooked!! It was pretty rough and when I brought it up at the desk I was told by the change of staff that all they could do was tell maintenance about it

That was the sour part of the trip! Besides that everything else was fine

Tiffany Manes

The room was not cleaned from the people before us Trash in the trash can, skid marks in the toilet, and beds not made up We showed up with 4 tired kids I made up the beds myself and just dealt with it for the night

Too tired to make a fuss, but I had to write a review to warn others Also the locks on the door were broken The deadbolt didn’t work and the top bar lock was broken off, so we slept with a chair under the doorknob and the couch pushed up against it We got the 2 bedroom suite for $100 The beds were very comfortable The front desk was very nice when we checked in There is no breakfast though so don’t count on that

Tokyo Blues Man

Booked a room for my boss that came from Japan on my credit card Then, when I checked him in, my boss presented his credit card and told the clerk to charge his credit card and not mineWell, what do you know! They charged his room on both of our credit cards – they double charged us!I called and requested them to reimburse/credit my card and the same clerk said “no problem”

A month later, it was never credited So, I called again and they gave me a run-around So, I had to call the head office And they gave me a run-around, too So, I had to deal with my credit card company, and by then, they told me it was too late to do anything about itI used to refer this hotel to all of the people visiting from Japan but NO MORE I will NOT use this hotel ever again!

When checking in I was asked to initial and sign the agreement about a $20 incidentals hold on my credit card, smoke free mandate, etc I asked for a copy of the agreement, since I was required to sign it, and was told that I could not have a copy of it by the employee and manager I explained that I wanted a copy because it contained my signature on the agreement and the manager politely did ask me to wait a minute while she consulted with the General Manager (GM) who was there

The GM approved for the manager to make me a copy I offered to pay for the copy, but was told it was not needed Otherwise, the hotel appears to be newly built, is located near convenience stores, pharmacy and grocery store It also has a pleasant smell

Terrible stay! The room we stayed in was horrendous n honestly a waste of my money! There was hair everywhere from the bathroom to the bedroom The toilet had pee on it, there was a ring in the tub n it was clogged up badly! Food bag was found in the closet The hospitality was poor, had to ask for clean towels

This is suppose to be a 5star hotel, I honestly could have stayed somewhere cheaper n received better room service n so on 👎🏽

Melanie Metzger

Very friendly front desk employee The hotel is in need of updates badly The rooms are old and out dated

The TVs are tiny and ours wouldn’t work correctly Only like 5 channels on our TV worked The breakfast was awful All of the hot food was cold and we were down there before 9am Their juice machine was out of juices The pool closed early and opened late (this was the only reason we booked this hotel) On a weekend most hotel pools are open until 10 or 11pm Theirs closed at 8pm We stay at least 25+ nights a year at hotels and this was a first Our room was clean at least

David Brown

If I could give this negative stars I would My friends and I have been staying here every year during the Barber Vintage Festival and in this same hotel And it always been pretty good

This year over 3 nights stay we got no room cleaning and I still had to go downstairs to get fresh towels To top it off, they quoted us a good price for all 3 nights When we checked out they were unable to print out our receipt so we left and waited for an email receipt They only gave us the better rate one night and charged nearly double for the other 2 nights Even after being on the phone for hours they wouldn’t budge So unless you like getting robbed in a dirty hotel, don’t stay here

Has that nice traditional hotel feel that I loveSo far in my life I’ve never had a bad experience with a Hilton HotelIf I’m in Birmingham again, I will come stay here again with no hesitation

A.D. Moulton

Stayed here for a weekend with my family in 2 separate double rooms Staff was friendly and accommodating Breakfast buffet was nice although about $17 per person, with the buffet you have people still serving you drinks (coffee and water) so I’m sure a large portion of that is the convenience fee

My room was clean, had a small issue in my bathroom the first night, hotel resolved within about 10 minutes Would recommend! Tons of really nice restaurants around as well

Very nice hotel and staff Very clean, rooms are very spacious A word of warning though and only reason I didn’t give 5 stars – if you’re someone with long hair plan on an extra hour or two to get ready if you’re showering

The water pressure of the shower is super weak, it’s like a trickle If you have long hair it will take about an hour or two to rinse the shampoo/conditioner out of your hair

Kris Macchiarola

This hotel accommodates pets (which I did not know) The hotel should have designated rooms for people with pets vs people without

My room smelled like animals and triggered my allergies immediately The staff did their best to improve my experience, but it wasn’t enough because every time I went back to the hotel, my symptoms would worsen

Jessica Modic

My husband and I stayed here for 4 months, so we know ALL the details The staff is amazing! They truly go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need to make it feel like home Yonas brought all of my packages to my room, Nick always grabbed my garbage and towels outside my door, Desiree made sure the housekeepers even used my non toxic cleaning products! Larry made sure anything I needed fixed got taken care of and Niemah (prob spell wrong) is top notch in taking care of all hospitality services! So blessed to stay with this crew and we are sad to leave!

Great customer service Clean room Wonderful, central location

Parking lot fully lit and safe If ever in Birmingham again, will definitely stay hereAn aside, the hallways and elevators are very warm and humid Definitely a turnoff, as was trying to get the room cool enough We were told this was due to a new system installed that pulls air from the outside – not great when it’s July in Alabama! Overall, though, very pleased!!!

Marquita Gibbs

This hotel is beautiful and in a quiet area When we arrived and checked in, there was an issue with our room Nelson at the front desk accommodated us quickly and made sure we were comfortable for our stay

The breakfast had many options and we were very pleased Kelsey and the main cook were very friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of Their hospitality made celebrating our special occasion an even more joyous event Definitely recommend this hotel

Bill Fortenberry

The hotel personnel were amazing They were very professional and friendly Unfortunately, the building itself seems to be suffering from some structural issues

There was a large dip in the middle of the floor of our room, and the floor of the bathroom was so off level that the toilet lid would not stay up and the sliding door for the shower would not stay closedWe at breakfast at the hotel “restaurant,” but we would have been better off eating somewhere else There was not a free breakfast provided, and we would have had no issue with paying for a decent meal, but the food was the exact same fare that we would have gotten for free at any other hotel in the area It was also annoying that breakfast was served an hour later on Saturday than on FridayWe did appreciate the fact that the clientele at this hotel are mostly business leaders as opposed to vacationers The hallways were very quiet, and we did not have any disturbances during the night Overall, it was a good stay, but I don’t think we’ll be back given the structural problems and the lack of a real restaurant

Like most of the reviews I read before staying here, I have to say that the best thing about this hotel is the staff They were very welcoming and helped me find a spot for my motorcycle trailer – very accommodating Unfortunately, the rest of the hotel was far less appealing

The rooms are dirty The desk chair and couch had stains all over them The sheets and pillows were clean The bathroom had a broken toilet seat that moved all around when opening/closing The floor by the entry was sticky for some reason The coffee maker in the room did not look like it had been wiped down at all, spots and hard water streaks I ran it a few times through with hot water before using it The bathtub was a little dingy in the cornersI didn’t use it The remote control was not cleaned or marked as “disinfected” or in a bag – hard to believe in the times of COVID The breakfast the next morning was good, if basic, and the buffet style set-up was organized and clean If I had to stay in Birmingham again, it would not be at this hotel Not enough value, comfort or cleanliness The Summit area has new, better hotels that I would look into

Misti Ramey

This is the place to stay It’s not too far off the highway but you can’t hear any road noise The staff were all very nice

The place looks well kept The beds were clean and very comfortable The room was average size but the high ceilings made it feel bigger There’s a mini fridge and microwave along with a hair dryer in the room The AC worked well There was very little noise from the hallways The breakfast is a real meal not some muffin and an apple thing I travel often for work and will stay here again I love that they don’t want to charge me $100+ for a port either

Ginger Given

Front desk guy was super friendly 😊 And the room was huge! I am handicapped (use a cane) so the size of the room plus grab bars by the toilet and in the shower are very helpful! Also had a shower seatThe only drawback was the low water pressure in the sink and the bathroom tile was a bit stickyWe enjoyed our stay here! There was a BBQ restaurant very close as well

Saw’s Juke Jointvery tasty!

Room was clean and everything worked Linens were clean and plentiful Very comfortable and quiet, I was surprised due to the fact when I checked out at 03:00 the parking lot was packedThe only thing I have an issue about is that my Choice Privileges account isn’t showing up Hopefully it will and I would gladly return to this hotel

Monica Cumberbatch

Very nice experience Claudia (Claudine?) at front desk was very pleasant The beds were very comfortable and I had a great night’s rest being tired traveling through many states

I got to the coffee station just as they were taking down breakfast and the lady was so kind to help me get my to go breakfast before she started Many other places I’ve stayed I’ve experienced much impatience and a lack of acknowledgement The room(s) could do with an upgrade but overall Great job Comfort Inn!

If I had to describe my stay at this hotel as fair I stayed here with my local church for Motion It was not among the worst of the worst of hotel stays that I have been on

After waiting for our room, which is understandable due to the difficulty of acquiring workers in today’s economy, my leader and roommate found that the room was clean It had a microwave and a minifridge which is a nice amenity However, I do have some complaints The stained sheets, smoke smell, damp room, and occasional cockroaches in the tub were all things that I might be able to overlook My main issue, that was also shared with the rest of the group, was with the employee who prepared and served the breakfast They did not act professionally in their workplace I personally caught a lot of flack for the breakfast rush that she apparently encountered on the previous day Me and my leader came down for breakfast and they asked me if there was anyone behind me I struggle with hearing people sometimes and when they spoke to me I did not hear them so I said, “Sorry, I did not hear you” Their reply was to look at the employee next to them and exclaimed, “See, that’s just how these kids are! Disrespectful and rude” They later stormed off to the breakfast prep room when met with two more tables and slammed the door behind them I’m not sure what provoked them this morning but I hope that it is only her experience from yesterday that she is still bitter about I do hope it is that rather than anything else that might actually be worth slamming a door on some kids who wanted some breakfast before they headed out for the dayAll in all, these are the only issues I had and I was able to get some rest in between the two nights I spent at the Motion convention I wish you a great rest of your day, and I pray that that employee is given some peace and patience

Breakfast selection was excellent Normally hotel breakfast is difficult for those of us with food allergies, but the Drury hotel offers so many options that I was able to have a great breakfast In the room, my two favorite things were the pillows (soft, but supportive) and an awesome shower

Love the angle of the shower head as well as the water pressure Indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub was enjoyed by many guests Next time, I’m bringing my suit! This hotel checks off all of my must-haves for a hotel and at an affordable rate

Judy Lanier

The entire staff was was friendly and welcoming The General Manager, Melanie, loves her job, and it was obvious that she loves the Hospitality Industry She made us feel so Welcome

The food was good, and we enjoyed talking with several people that we met We will definitely visit again We are locals who were getting a new roof on our home and decided to take a 2 day break while roofers were there Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Adrian Bee

We had a great stay Mattresses were actually comfortable and pillows were nice and fluffy We did not partake in the dinner and drinks provided but we did do the hot breakfast and we were quite impressed with the selection

Because the indoor pool was connected to the outdoor pool, the indoor pool was a bit chillyOverall, we had a fantastic stay and would recommend!

Clean and update rooms Staff is extremely friendly and kept asking if everything was to my satisfaction This was both at night during checkin and in the morning during checkout

A pleasure to deal with and would happily stay here again Would never stay down the street at the 2 Hilton brand hotels that was the worst experience of my life and only made better by how sweet and nice the staff here was Hotel was honestly cleaner and nicer as well

Joshua Johanning

It’s “okay” But I wouldn’t recommend the hotel as a Platinum/Titanium if you want hotel breakfast (or anyone else who might want to pay for it)The room was fine along with the internet

I thought my room felt a little damp with the wall AC not working as well, but it was livableMy two biggest complaints:- no breakfast first 2 days of my stay because the person hadn’t arrived – instead of using my $10 for a heated up breakfast sandwich I had to spend it on snacks I didn’t need- billed for breakfast when breakfast was open even though I had my $10 daily creditFollow-ups on requested items didn’t happen It’s okay, but perhaps try elsewhere

tom kandler

Completely dissatisfied My room was overpriced and dirty Hotels are saying they don’t do daily cleaning because it is taking longer when guests check out to ‘completely clean’ the rooms

Weren’t they doing that prior to COVID? They are also using the same excuse for not having complimentary coffee in the lobby, but they have put in mini coffee shops that you have to pay for I’ve learned my lesson and will look on AirBnB next time

My stay here was pleasant The staff is very matter of fact and no non sense You ask for information and they will provide you with the information when it is available

I only stayed here one night in a double queen room The view was nice I had to shove the door open when coming in but the room was clean and comfy Nothing impressive but all the amenities were accurate and the room was cleaned Breakfast is nothing fancy but I enjoyed the waffles The gym has disinfectant wipes, towels and filtered water If you need something basic and to the point, this is your place

Anthony Johnson

Stayed here for the last two nights and there is a lot to like about this place Beautiful architecture, nice rooms and great location Could have easily given them 4 stars but their front desk personnel had attitudes and in some cases were plain rude

I’m a lifetime Diamond Hilton Honors member and there is a fine line between being a good hotel versus being a great hotel And until the Owners and Management of this hotel require warm customer service this place will always be just a “good” hotel

Barney Moore

Don’t get it twisted, this hotel is not worth your money Clogged drains, cracked sink, cracked toilet, no refrigerator, AC wasn’t working right, very tiny rooms I travel all over the country for work and this was absolutely the smallest hotel room I’ve ever stayed in

Street parking is a pain, not the safest area at night either I found the hotel staff to be kinda rude in general Nothing about this hotel feels historic except maybe the view from the street They serve breakfast on the top floor, so I went up there at 7am and it was 80 degrees in that damn room It’s basically the same terrible breakfast as any other Hampton Inn, but add 10 degrees to the ambient temperature No cold milk or cream at the coffee station, no milk in the fridge, and no fridge in the rooms either Good luck if you stay here I booked 3 nights and dipped out early just to get away from it My best guess is they don’t have the money or staff to properly service the place, but if you’re gonna charge $180/night you better get your act together Beds are so squishy the sheets come popping off Congrats, you’re the worst hotel I’ve been to in 37 nights at Hilton brand hotels in the past few months Now comes the hard part, put some money into this place and make it right Historic shouldn’t mean run-down

The stay wasn’t bad The staff was friendly The breakfast was alright

The hotel needs some updating, hence the 4 out of 5My phone call to book the room was the most horrible experience ever I think they use a third party, at least for when they’re busy If this review was only based on that, I would give it zero stars When I was done w the phone call I was angry and exhausted They took 15 minutes and kept trying to get me to sign up for a bunch of things Plus they were super pushy and when I asked how much the room rate was she made me listen to a whole spiel for 7 minutes before she would give me the price I can’t explain it, you just have to call at a busy time and see for yourself

Betsy Duffy

Read the reviews prior to booking THEY ARE LIES Do NOT book this hotel

1 The room door handle came off in our hand2 The air conditioner leaked all over the floor (3rd floor) Yes The floor under the air conditioner was saturated and we witnessed water dripping down the cord We worried about mold3 Dirty bedspread and holes in the blankets4 The hallway carpets are FILTHY5 The room, hallway, and elevator smelled like smoke6 Mold in the ice machine Obviously we did not useThe kicker was…when we nicely went back to the desk and asked for a different room and listed off the issues the owner was summonsed and stated before we could be given another room she had to see how much of the room we had used WE HAD JUST CHECKED IN!We did not have time to change hotels as we only had one half hour to spare until we were due at the Miss Alabama competitionSeriously Save yourself Do NOT book this hotel

Wow! This place is amazing! Definitely home away from home We arrived early and Mr Kim let us check in early, which was so helpful! Pool was freshly cleaned and so nice

Room was large and spacious and spotless The location is tucked away on a hill, yet close to everything Staff was wonderful Such a clean, homey, amazing place to stay! Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to everyone Thank you for making our stay wonderful!

Andrew Rolen

I didn’t, personally, stay at this hotel but my husband has been traveling for business a lot recently and he says this is the best hotel he’s stayed at The rooms are clean and the staff is always pleasant and helpful I made the mistake of booking the wrong Best Western last week and he stayed at the other one one night and then had me switch hotels to this one because he liked it so much the first time he stayed there

I have called in twice with booking questions and spoke with Jin (General manager) both times He is awesome! Whatever he’s getting paid, it is not enough He remembered me even though it had been at least a few weeks and we had only spoken once He has been very polite and very helpful every time that I have worked with him He always greets my husband by name and he says he is always great to deal with I have dealt with a lot of hotels recently (other Best Westerns and other hotel chains) and this location is above and beyond the competition and cheaper then many others out there If ever we need to come back to the area, this is where we will be staying

mdivester9

Where to start?…Dirty, outdated, mediocre breakfast, mild on tub and bathroom For the price of the room, I expected much more The shower is tiny and had mold in the caulking and mold on the shelving

Hole in my closet door The spring on the entry door to my room is not working properly so the door does not shut unless you pull it fully The door handle to the room entry door is wonky and you have to pull up and then down on the handle to enter the room The breakfast is mediocre at best Housekeeping has not come by to take dirty towels and replace in two days of stay One of the worst experiences I’ve had at a hotel recently and I would warn anyone coming to Birmingham not to stay here Take your money somewhere else!!

We have currently been staying at this hotel for a few nights for my husband’s work The rooms are very clean, spacious and comfortable Full size fridge, dishwasher (did use), microwave, coffee maker and a few dishes

Bed is comfortable, pillows are too soft for me but I bring mine with me Hotel is very nice and all the staff I have encountered have been super polite and helpful I personally would recommend this hotel Parking lot and area felt safe also

Josh Reimann

We love Home2 Suites, especially for larger families like ours Very spacious and very clean rooms! This specific Home2 though had thin walls as we could hear a person next door talking on the phone Our room was pretty hot throughout the night, even though we had the fan on high and the thermostat on 67

I didn’t take a star off for that because it could’ve been user error 😉 Beautiful pool and great breakfast

Keda C

Good experience overall Hotel is located near lots of restaurants and stores including a Target! Rooms are spacious and have everything you need including a garbage disposal I needed a pet friendly hotel and this one was the best option

They even have an outdoor area for pets with complimentary poop bags However, the garbage can was overflowing with poop baggies and hadn’t been emptied during my four day stay I also wished other guests would clean up after their dog as there was quite a bit of poop in their grass play area! Besides that, it was a lovely stay Would recommend!

Based on previous experience (2 years ago under another brand) I did not get what I was expecting The exterior of the property looks welcoming but the rooms are a nightmare The rooms are dark, gloomy, and smelly

In 9 days on property there was only 1 good housekeeping experience Some of the team members are AMAZING, very cordial and personable but others are the exact opposite The locatiin is central and makes it easy to get around This is definitely not the same hotel it was a couple of years ago

Patricia Dickinson

Stayed at Sonesta on Mother’s Day, May 8, 2022 I love the location of this hotel, it was within the area of our visit to Birmingham It was quiet, security was provided, as well as extra security locks on the room doors

Our room was very comfortable, very clean and smelled nice, even though the furnishings were a bit outdated The bed was comfortable and we had extra pillows that we requested online Candy, who was on the front desk when we checked in was exceptional She is engaging, knowlegeable of her job, and very professional She made our stay nice right from the start even before we entered our roomAnd, lets not leave out Whitney, who checked us out the next morning She was also engaging and professional as well This hotel was a surprise to us, we hadn’t heard of the brand but took a chance It is located in a quiet area right off Interstate I-65 with plenty of places to eat There is even a Walmart in the area (which is a plus for me) I will definitely stay at Sonesta Homewood in the future when I am in the areaPS Thanks Candy for your help when I called late night on May 11 And, she even greeted me by name over the phone before I even began to tell her why I called or who I was Even with Caller-ID, I probably would not have remembered the name of a previous guest Like I said, personality Plus and attention to detail!!

We had a room reserved and had pre-paid for today 7-27-22 They called at 2 pm today to tell us they are canceling our room as they were overbooked for the room type Didn’t offer to change room typed as we had a 2 bedroom suite

Had a unrefundable room if we canceled but they didn’t offer any comp from their canceling Had to get our agent to get our funds back as they said they wouldn’t issue the refund Very sad to start our trip this wayOnline an hour later the room was back on for more than double what we were charged We did not book here again and went to another hotelI don’t know how to reply to your response But it was your hotel and we were not able to stay there It blew our trip expense out of the water if we were to rebook at your location Your whole system has not been a help at all
