Comfy beds and the room was a good size. Some updating has been done and everything is clean but many outlet covers need to be replaced. Dangerous.

Breakfast selections were plentiful. Bacon and 2 kinds of sausage. Scrambled eggs and omelettes. Nice.

Stayed with points so all is good but change the outlet covers please.

We got checked in and stayed in room 107. It was not a home game weekend and not really crowded but I would probably caution it could be more noisy if there were more traffic that could park right outside the window. The room itself was a nice cozy room, it was clean and roomy for 4 adults. The only complaint I have and therefore could not give it 5 stars, was the slight order and a slight bathroom issues. 1. When you first walk in there is the bathroom to the left and it doesn't have a vent, (making for a very moist bathroom after a hot shower) the room had a slight stale wet odor, even with the AC on. If the bathroom had vents, I feel it would be better to help with the moisture and the odor. The other slight issue was the tub, the non slip strips were dirty. Maybe a good bleach soak would have cleaned it and maybe not. Either way, I always travel with travel size lysol and air freshener for such things and flip flops for showering. I did have to spray the room each day to combat the stale odor. I did not bother to report to the office ,as I felt it was a design flaw and not much they could do about vented bathrooms. I did not bother to tell management about the strips either, it was not a deal breaker. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to friends. There was a nice breakfast assortment each day and one could have a decent breakfast. There is a nice gym and pool outside, but we did not use the pool. The property itself is clean, neat and inviting. The staff were friendly and courteous. This location was chosen because we were 3-4 minutes away from the HOWA and VA properties. It seemed to be very much centrally located to the few things we did, nothing over 10 minutes away.

VERY convenient location. This hotel is impeccable. The check in staff was thorough; we were even asked if we had a floor preference. Beautifully decorated. Very clean. My mother and I had a room with 2 queen beds, that were so comfortable! Rooms are very spacious. AC worked very well (which is of the utmost importance if you aren't used to the Alabama humidity...). The variety at breakfast was impressive- pancakes, omelets, pastries, oatmeal, bagels and toast, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit... you'd be hard pressed to not find an option that works for you.

Just a few miles from campus and right across from Target and many convenient stores to stock your student's dorm room. Very comfortable bed and room; has mini fridge and microwave. Stay comes with a great breakfast -- choice of scrambled eggs, omelets, pancakes, hot and gooey cinnamon rolls, sausage, bacon, hashed browns, etc. Can't beat it. Will stay again.

This was just a quick overnight while driving down the interstate - but we stumbled onto a good option here.

The parking lot fills quickly but they share an overflow lot with the strip center next door(where the bridal shop is).

The property is well off the highway so there is zero road noise. It is still pretty easy to get in and out. There is also a lot of food and commercial in area.

Note that a lot of little league teams stay here. The breakfast was good - but there were a lot of kids running about.

The room was decent sized and the bathroom was also good sized.

The A/C was good at night but struggled during the day - but this is Alabama in the summer so...

The wifi was good and the desk space in the room was actually decent. The doors leave a gap at the bottom so light and sound can enter but the hallway was quiet when we were there.

The curtains leave a gap at the bottom so light comes in - only an issue if you are trying to sleep during the day.

Overall - I thought it worked pretty well.
