This was our first trip to a home2suites The layout was fantastic with a full refrigerator, dishes, kitchen sink, microwave In the past I have done much business travel, and what I loved about this room was that the fan on the heat was a constant hum and not the on and off that would wake me up with other hotels

We slept like a baby! It was more like white noise than fan noise Big deal for this frequent traveler Check-in staff was extremely helpful I will look for a home to suites next time! My husband and I were on a road trip back home to MN from Florida and our little dog liked the open spaces to walk

We won’t ever stay anywhere else on our trips back and forth to visit grandparents anymore! We got there 2 hours before normal check in and they made sure to get a room cleaned as I had two small kids who had been on the road for HOURS and just needed a break! The man was absolutely delightful He thought of everything- 2 beds, a tub for baths and gave my son some free snacks on the way up! Breakfast was delicious! My son spilled his cereal and the attendant was over immediately to help clean it up with a smile on her face Everyone was incredibly welcoming and hospitable! We will certainly be back

My husband and I stayed here while we were in the Auburn/Opelika area for the day I started not feeling well at all so we decided to get a room so I could rest From the moment we walked in we knew this was a great choice

The cleanliness of the lobby, the friendly staff to the cleanliness of our room were all very, very impressive!! (This is coming from someone with a compromised immune system so cleanliness is an absolute must have for me! I was so comfortable and had zero concerns!) The location is perfect! We definitely well be looking for Microtel Inn & Suites on our next overnight stay(s)!!

I have to say i was a bit disappointed with this place The room was tiny and felt cramped The a/c wouldn’t turn off, so i had to switch it to heat eventually

I asked for a blanket and the woman said, “you’ll have to come down and get it, because I’m checking someone in” It was about 1:30 in the morning So i had to dress enough to go downstairs, and she was sitting there on her cell phone I don’t doubt that when i called she was, in fact, checking someone in, but one would have thought that she could offer to bring it up when she was done

D. Woods

Stay away from room 308 The pictures will explain why I was moved to room 408, and did not have any problems with roaches

By then I was all grossed out, and had trouble sleeping If you check up under the beds and alone the dresser, a person will find that this hotel do not vacuum well I hope this is helpful for people making decisions on where to live for a day or two

We relocated from a red roof inn and suites down the road to the La Quinta Inn & Suites and it was a breath of fresh air Everything was clean and we appreciated the front desk and hospitality from all staff we encountered They are pet friendly which was great since we were traveling with our Boston Terrier

Respectfully though, please clean up after your pet Another guest traveling with their dog did not, and that of course is why many places are not pet friendly The lobby was super immaculate, we loved the late check out time as it worked well for our travel schedule and the breakfast had many great options We did not use the pool or patio, but from observation, it looked very nice! Very well lit and very clean Would stay here again

Lauri Sturgis

Excellent location for this contemporary hotel Everything was very clean and modern The room was large, quite, and the king bed was comfortable

A microwave, fridge, desk and shallow tub were included The hot breakfast and dining area were excellent Breakfast included eggs, meat, potatoes, biscuits and gravy and other items This is a nice hotel, but, there are some things that could be improved upon: the chairs in the room were too narrow for a large adult, tv channel and pay for view selection was poor, the ironing board was miniature and useless, the shades did not block enough light, there was only one full sized luggage cart for the entire hotel, the corner location of accessible rooms is too far for the handicapped to walk, the seat for the accessible shower did not fit, the tub was too shallow for adult baths and the water pressure in the shower was bad, so bathing was difficult And, only 2 towels per room and terrible toilet paper was surprising at this nice of a hotel We stayed here 3 days and we were extremely friendly with the staff and they did try to reciprocate, but each staff member I talked to kind of flubbed it in one way or another I would give the ladies at the counter a 375 out of 5, and the older lady taking care of breakfast I would give a 5 for a task well accomplished but only a 25 for the way she barks at the guests when she thinks they might try to come back for food after the cut off time A friendly, “The food will be up for about 10 more minutes” would suffice nicely We never talked to the housekeeping staff, but they did an awesome job cleaning For groups – The lobby would make an enjoyable place to hang out and there was even a small bar, but I never saw a bartender There is a pool out back, but, we didn’t use it Ask for a small bag of ice at the check-in counter to save yourself a trip down for it later They do have a robot that can bring some items to your room, but we never asked for anything to be sent up

Grace Edge

My family of 6 recently stayed here for a week while waiting for military housing, and the staff and hotel were phenomenal! Everyone was incredibly kind to our kids, and offered to help with anything we could possibly need Our kids looked forward to the delicious breakfast every morning, and the ladies who make the breakfast chatted with us every morningThe rooms were very clean

The price was great for the service we received and I’ll recommend this hotel to anyone

Its hardly worth the 1 star I’ve been to quite a few hotels and this beats the cake as the worst I’ve seen yet I was half tempted to take my money back and go else where, the bathroom floor was waxed or something but was not dried correctly I almost fell and hurt myself ! lawsuit waiting to happen basically, the internet did not work during my stay the weather was fine so no reason it should of been out & not working this is very imported to me as I have to have it for work! and I paid for it to be included, the bathroom handle was fully stripped to the point when I turned it on my handle to turn the water on got stuck and it could not be turned off at all ! they made me switch rooms after I’ve drove 8Hrs to get here for work the front desk person was super underlining rude the way he says something or jokes is not funny at all If I come back to this city I will not being staying here again!

Have stayed here several times during the past seven years Staff is always welcoming and professional Rooms have always been clean, comfortable, and quiet

Stayed here again today and this was the first time I had arrived early enough to sit and relax and watch television Sorry to say the TV service is horrendous Service is provided by a company named Point Broadband Very few channels are available and those channels that are available failed to come through without serious signal issues Terrible TV service Good thing I prefer reading Other than that, this Comfort Inn was pleasant


When I arrived at the hotel I was informed that I had already been checked in After informing the receptionist that this was my first time coming in she made a call and after 30 mins or so I was given a key just to find out that someone was already in there Upon returning to the front desk to inform her, she issued another room that she assured was the king suite that I initially booked

However, once I arrived to the room, I realized that it was a 2 Queens

We were in town for my Mom’s memorial June 3 and 4 The hotel it self is a little dated Our room was a little small

The A/C was not working very well We got really warm We asked 3 times for clean towels and never received them The pool was dirty and the chlorine was overwhelming When I checked out Carol was so sweet She so understanding We had our little puppy Gracie with us Everyone loved her there The breakfast was outstanding For a complimentary breakfast they had a lot of verity The staff was so sweet and welcoming Would not stay here again just for the fact that for the price you pay I’d like a little bigger room, clean towels ,clean pool and a room that the A/C worked Carol checked us in and out Carol thank you for being so sweet and caring💞💞💞 I gave 4 stars for the staff😊😊😊

Charles Lorant

I travel for business and am a Hilton Honors member Hampton Inns are usually my first choice I intended to stay five days and use this hotel as my base

I checked in just before midnight Just walking through the doors, into the lobby, then on the elevators and to the room peaked concerns about cleanliness and maintenance Everything looked worn out and dated I went straight to the bathroom to brush my teeth and go to bed I turned on the light and saw the toilet lids up and urine in the bowl As disgusting as that was, I flushed it and got ready for bed It was so late, and I had driven 500 miles to get there I was exhausted so I stayed through the night and woke up early the next morning to meet witnesses I was preparing for a trial The soap slipped out of my hand while I was in the shower When I bent down to pick it up, I was stunned to see hairs all over the floor It was as if someone had used clippers and dry shaved their body Small clippings of short hair everywhere I actually gagged There was so much hair on the bar of soap that I couldn’t claw it out with my fingernailsI packed my car, canceled my morning appointments, and called Hilton Honors During the 24 minute wait I was supposed to have before a customer service representative came to the phone, I was able to go to the front desk and check out They were not overly concerned that I was canceling my stay less than 12 hours of arriving and with four more nights left to go That’s probably because a manager was not on duty to hear about my issues or complaints The conversation with Hilton Honors customer service was as pathetic as the shower floor was That’s an entirely different story and entirely different review to comeI am provided a debit card for my travel expenses When I went to check into another hotel, I could not because a hold of just under $1000 had been placed on the debit card Neither the Hampton Inn nor Hilton Honors could resolve that problem after hours of tryingToday, I will be checking out of La Quinta where I ended up staying the remainder of my trip The experience at La Quinta was 100% improvement over my experience at the Hampton Inn I was surprised at that since the cost is about 30% less I doubt I will ever stay at a Hampton Inn Again unless it is one that I am very familiar with Even so, I have no confidence that Hiltons Honors customer service can resolve or even cares to resolve complaints and experiences such as mine

Phillip Lowry

The level of incompetence is surreal After over charging my card and being promised a full refund Hilton decides that I am not worthy of an actual full refund bc I did use the room Never mind that I have had to make over 10 phone calls between Hilton honors and the location itself

Always talking to someone else each time Never mind that I was promised a full refund by the GM and Hilton Honors They don’t care about you All they want is your money and they’ll steal to get it

Very friendly staff 2 story hotel with clean rooms Bathroom is a bit small, but not a deal breaker

I deducted 2 stars because there is no working elevator You must use the stairs if you are on the 2nd floor The breakfast was adequate and served quickly No waffle maker, there is a pancake machine instead The outdoor seating area is a great addition for groups The pool is private and secluded There is a variety of shopping and restaurants nearby

Simply Beautiful

Front desk staff was nice at check in Housekeeping was OK except for one who wanted to make sure we had everything we needed she was great!The others acted as of they hated their jobs and didn’t want to be there We also overheard them complaining about 2 employees not being there for their scheduled shift so they had double work to do

So over all stay was good nice clean rooms continental breakfast was was they had a very good selection of food I would definitely recommend this hotel

Nadia Simmons

The hotel was nice, clean, and accommodating for the most part All the staff members were nice and professional The only reason we didn’t give five stars was because we were staying on the 3rd floor, and even though our rooms were cool and comfortable, the hallway was literally 90° and muggy

I told the front desk, and they said ok We stayed for 3 nights and the hallway temperature never changed during our stay

Carrie Hamill

Absolutely terrible!! After driving 17 hours, we tried to stop to stay here They would not take a walk in customer and made me call some reservation person The woman spoke broken English and was hard to understand her

After giving her my info 5 times over and over again, I got extremely aggravated and left Guess they didn’t want my $200 We went up the road, literally 2 miles, and walked in without issue They were more than happy for my $119

We have been staying at this hotel for the past 6 years when visiting our daughter It used to be a great hotel and has gone extremely downhill We were awakened at 8:00 am on Saturday to incessant banging

The 5th floor is undergoing renovations That’s great, but nothing was mentioned on the app or website We would have chosen a room on a lower floor away from the noise When discussing it with the front desk, she immediately became rude and hostile rather than offering a solution such moving us to a lower level She blamed us, raised her voice was inappropriate and combative Unacceptable! The room was subpar…stained sticky carpet; only sheets on the bed; torn blinds; dingy/smelly pillows that looked old with no pillowcase; broken shower door; and bathroom sink that backed up For the high price, the hotel was completely unacceptable and on the level of a glorified Motel 6 I am disappointed to say we will look for alternate accommodations in LaGrange during our next visit Do better Hilton/Hampton!!!

Sean Evatt

Horrible!! Hopefully after the remodel it will be better Also, watch the staff they have very sharp edge mouths Be ready to argue if u are not happy because they will tell u why you are wrong

I made a reservation online and they forced me to pay up-front I arrived at the property early and waited about 30 minutes for a room to be ready I walked to my room, 70s flashback In the bathroom was a plunger in a plastic bag, the floor was sticky, the door would not close all the way I went down and asked for a different room and basically got told because you prepaid you are stuck Called customer service and after 30 minutes they moved me to a suite I walked in to wore down furniture, stained floors, ceiling fan with dust about a inch thick, paper shreds all over the place, closet door off track Back to the desk and again nothing we can do because you prepaid with some other smart comments Called customer service again, 1:45 later I finally was able to get a refund and move to another hotel

Chrisheena Huguley

Horrible horrible horrible experience! I originally booked for a 2 standard Queen and upon arrival I was advised there was only a single king available (false advertising) Not only that, I was assigned an occupied room (124) I literally walked in and there were two people asleep in the bed I requested for a refund and had to find somewhere else to stay in the middle of the night, which was inconvenient and a hassle

Front desk agent was very unprofessional! I wouldn’t recommend this hotel what so ever to anyone!

The room smelled of smoke upon entering While the room itself was passingly tidy, the bathroom had visible mold and mildew Mattresses were ok but not very comfortable

Awoke in the morning to find no hot water for a shower So we will be on the road for six hours to hopefully get a shower at our next hotel… Which will not be a Candlewood Suites

Peter Fisher

Three nights, avoiding COVID in the place I was supposed to be staying They do not service the room Unless requested, supplies (coffee etc) can be picked up from the front desk, sometimes quite a long wait after dialling 0

Lots of weird mechanical noises in my room even with the A/C switched offOtherwise comfortable and spacious enough I didn’t use any other of the hotels facilities

Tonga Newsome

We stayed here overnight while traveling to Florida Upon entering the bathroom I witnessed a roach crawling on the toilet Before we could phone downstairs, Nancy phoned us to make sure everything was okay with our room

We explained what happened and she immediately came with keys for a new room Nancy’s excellent customer saved the day I probably will never stay here again, however it was nice that management was so responsive Nancy gets 5 stars, the hotel only 3

This place is infested with roaches Once we checked in the room the roaches came out of a pillow We went back to the front desk and they refused to give a refund

The front desk clerk closed the blinds and called the police to ask us to leave since we didn’t want a different room The office even had roaches crawling outside the office window

Vae Ferguson

I’m really impressed with the staff and the room The staff very mannerable and the room was nice & clean and affordable If I ever come back to visit Alabama I’ll be coming back to this Quality Inn

I stayed at the Hampton Inn a day before and the service was poor the rooms were dirty and it cost way more So yes I’m pleased with this Quality Inn
