My husband (!!) and I stayed here two nights, April 11th and 12th. We were in town to see Phantom of the Opera and thought we'd give a B&B a try. It was beautiful. We got there and saw a note on the door saying to call Shelia for entrance, I called once and got no answer so I was...

COBB LANE BB -- ZEBRA ROOM. We congratulate our Honeymooners on their new start in life. We are glad they enjoyed many things of their visit and concluded "all in all we enjoyed it and would come again". We did correspond with the husband about price of roses, he did not affirmatively say "yes" at the time of the exchange...

Wife and I snuck away for a day trip and wanted to try some place out of the ordinary hotel. Well, we found it. This place has an abundance of old-school charm. Between the fine china we are the full course breakfast off of, to the wonderful memorabilia of the times way back as they were in Birmingham, you can't...

HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BB. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and the details that are offered in a Bed and Breakfast stay. You'll find each one you visit throughout the US and the World usually helps interpret history and life style of the region they are in. Our 1898 Victorian Mansion on the National Historic Registry takes pride in...

We arrived evening of 12th Feb at the wrong property, there are two, and our instructions took us to the wrong house which was locked. In due course a young lady arrived by car (the door bell obviously calls the other house) to guide us to the correct address. She was very helpful and friendly and to large extent made...

HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BB. We are sorry you did not enjoy your visit and felt it overpriced. With regard to comments about Victorian furnishings and fine china, we are proud of what we present of the Victorian Era which is rare in hospitality. It sounds like you would prefer modern décor and regular dishes of a regular hotel. Our rates...

Visiting my Mom, this looked like an interesting choice vs a traditional traveler's motel. It is a very attractive and quaint home on a byway off 20th Street in Five Points - just at the base of Red Mountain below Vulcan's statue. Greeted at the door by owner/operator with warmth and charm. Lovely old school decor throughout. Nice porch for...

HASSINGER DANIELS MANSION BB -- VICTORIAN CHAMBER ROOM. We enjoyed this guest very much. It is an interesting experience to stop our rapid pace of modern living and enjoy a large old fashion wrap around Victorian porch. You can people watch, read a book, listen to music, have a private uninterrupted conversation or perhaps sip wine while watching the sunset....

Let's start with the positives; a lovely house in a good location close to Vulcan park with lots of places to eat in walking distance. There is on street parking plus some spaces to the rear of the property. There is a police station opposite the B&B. The room was clean. However, our experience was perhaps the worst we have...

This is the 2nd review with same content frhhom this same guest couple. They arrived early and wanted occupancy, didn't abide by our entry policies. Our housekeeper saw them at the front door and does not greet guests. They did not have a US cell phone but an international one. She loaned them phone to call me. I was shopping...

We stayed here as a stopover going to and returning from New Orleans. The first stay we did not see the owner or any staff until the following morning. The second stay we never saw the owner. The young woman who served breakfast both mornings was not friendly. She almost seemed afraid of the guests. Amenities that we have come...

my interactions with the proprietor on the phone were not pleasant. She was quite rude. Based on the rude way she answered questions for me on the phone, I would've stayed somewhere else if it had been easy to arrange. They definitely need a phone courtesy adjustment. However, once there, it was comfortable and lovely. she seemed a bit nicer...

COBB LANE B & B -- ZEBRA ROOM. We thank this couple for commenting that their guest room (ZEBRA) was "comfortable and lovely". There is a misunderstanding involving a phone call and we apologize if they felt we were somehow rude. They arrived a couple hours early, housekeeping was in process, some rooms done and others not yet. Normally early...

The owner has a number on the door to call when you arrive, but no one answered when I called--it was pouring down rain--and 15 minutes passed before she returned my call. She insinuated I was being impatient. The house itself has some beautiful antiques, but the overall effect is ruined by the mix of cheap ceramics and that every...

We owe you an apology about your arrival. City BBs are typically kept locked for the security of guests and the Owner. Door bells are disconnected to avoid an incoming guest/delivery disturbing other guests inside. Our guests arrive and call us on their cell phones when at the front door and we help them. Perhaps you rang when I was...

Wow! What wonderful praise! You've made our year!! We're glad you found our location in Five Points Historic District (also known as Five Points Culinary District) convenient and enjoyable. You're right, each room does have its own unique décor. Sometimes new guests book a room, look at other rooms during their stay, then try a new one the next time,...
