We checked in and all was fine the first night. The second day we left our room at 630am and returned at 700pm to a room full of ants. Just to be clear we had not eaten anything in our room the night before or that day. I went to the suitcase that was on the chair in the corner...

I was very surprised to find this hotel looking almost new and very modern. I was just in Europe and find this hotel much like a European style hotel. It was very clean, quiet, and the staff friendly. The breakfast was great and had variety. The bed was awesome, and although the air conditioner was the old fashioned wall unit...

Date of stay - 7/24/15. This hotel is very clean and appears to be near the end of a major renovation. Nothing related to the renovation negatively impacted my stay.

I found a roach in the bathroom floor in my stay in that hotel. It was simply disgusting. I will never visit this hotel nor recommend it to anyone else. I paid $127 for 5 hours stay on the way traveling to Dallas, and I feel that is not the money I should have paid for a bad quality hotel...

Clean. Quiet. Close to freeway and eateries. Not close to any landmarks or good shopping. Rooms were clean. The free breakfast did the trick for fast and convenient eating. All good amenities. Staff was friendly and helpful.

When we travel to Louisville or Atlanta, Bessemer is a little over halfway so it makes a nice stop. The access is very easy from the interstate, off and on.

Chose this place for a one-night stay because we had planned to swim and it was rainy. Loved the indoor heated pool.
