Great local option for visiting University of Alabama. Close to Restaraunts, Redbox, and local shopping. Great pet policy if you need to travel with pets. Barely noticed other pets at hotel. Very clean hotel

We stayed two nights at this hotel over Thanksgiving week. It was the halfway point between our destination, so we stayed one night on our way out and one night on our way back. The value of this hotel is great. Clean rooms, good breakfast and great staff.

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times. Quality of accomodations and staff service is always good, though the price is a bit higher than (IMO) warranted. Breakfast was typical budget hotel fare: fried "eggs", paper-thin bacon (ran out quickly), biscuits and other breads, cereals, waffles, coffee and juice. Game day, so the hotel was pretty full.

We stayed here for just a night and left the following morning. This was more of a night halt on our way to Smoky mountains. The room was clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable. They have a full breakfast with lot of options. Overall, a satisfied stay. The reception staff was quite friendly.

Excellent value for the price. Conveniently located near interstate. We stopped here on the way to our destination just for an overnight stay. We liked it enough to reserve a room in the same place for the return trip.

Wonderful stay. Hotel is very clean and the staff is incredibly friendly and pleasant. The rooms are not fancy but very nice and very clean. The breakfast is basic but will do if you would rather not go out to a restaurant. Very easy access to the highway. Restaurants are nearby as well as some stores.
