This was just a quick stop to lay our heads en route to another destination, but we love Drury Inns and try to find one whenever we're traveling. This wasn't the very best Drury we've stayed in but the service was above and beyond, the room clean and the beds comfortable. The only less than exceptional experience was the breakfast selection... we've come to expect better from Drury than what we found here. It wasn't bad - just not up to the usual standards... no fresh fruit, very small cereal selection, not very well laid out. Other than that, though, it was great - convenient location just off 280 - close to some of the best shopping and dining in Birmingham. The desk clerk went out of her way to help us find a BBQ place who'd prepare a meal for 25 for us at the last minute - on a holiday weekend no less! That kind of service is all but non-existent these days!

Overall the hotel was excellent, especially for the cost. It was clean, inviting and the staff was great. The free hot snacks and drinks in the evening were a huge plus as well as the free hot breakfast. The only things I was disappointed in was there was no bacon or sausage to go along with the eggs, french toast and biscuits and gravy, the hot tub was cooler than the pool and there were no towels by the pool. All little things, still very well worth the stay, and will stay there again.

This is an older hotel in need of updating. Rooms smelled musty, and the elevator was very slow and even broke requiring a visit from the fire department. By far it was not the best Drury Inn but it was better than some cheaper hotels we have stayed in.

I stayed at the Drury a couple of weeks ago as a stopover will traveling to Florida. I didn't think the hotel was in a bad location. It was right off the interstate. You have to have a room key to park after dark and to get in the doors, so I felt it was a safe hotel. The rooms was nice and clean. It's probably due for an update on the decor, but it was fine. I wasn't able to go to sleep until 2 a.m. due to girls next door talking and laughing loudly. It was unbelievable how thin the walls were. I could hear every word coming from the room next door even when the people weren't talking loudly. After three calls to the front desk the person on duty finally got the people next door to be quiet. The breakfast was one of the better free breakfasts I've had at hotels that offer them. I was refunded the full amount for my stay, which shows the level of customer service the Drury is known for. I don't know if I would stay here again, but I would consider it.

I decided to stay in town at a hotel to get away. When I stay at the country hill (or whatever it is called) inn and suites or the holiday inn express, the rooms are huge and the beds are luxurious. my room here is just average, though clean. what is really annoying about this place is that i have to pound the keyboard to capitalize my letters to type. as you can see, it is not working that great. if you are looking for a basic hotel room, this is it. if you are looking for a NICE hotel room, this is nOT it.

on another note, the swimming pool and the hot tub are near my room. the hot tub is heated by heat lamps--very low budget. the fitness room is 3 tread mills and an elliptical in a closet sized space.

the worse part about this hotel is the location. it is on the leFT side from 280 which means you have to make extra effort to get into your lane to turn. anyone familiar with 280 knows good and well not to do business with anybody on the left side of the interstate unless you have a signal that allows you to get over there.

We appreciate hearing from our guests and sincerely apologize for the inconveniences you encountered during your stay at our Birmingham Southeast hotel. Your comments have been shared with hotel management to follow up with the appropriate departments. Thank you especially for your comments regarding the business center. We were unaware of the problems with the caps lock key and wouldn't have known it was time to replace our keyboard without your observation!

It is our mission for guests to enjoy a comfortable and clean stay and your comments will help us work to achieve these goals. Traffic on Hwy 280 is challenging and we do our best to accommodate our guest needs by offering 2 entrances to the property, both with traffic lights. If ever during a stay you have questions about traffic, please let the front desk know and we'll be happy to help address any questions or concerns. We truly appreciate your business and hope you will give us additional opportunities to serve your lodging needs.
