“OK Hotel. Free Drinks Offer is a Mess.”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

OK hotel. Nothing great and a bit run-down feeling. It's located in a cluster of other hotels, so there's not a ton to do right near the hotel. The free drink special was a mess--tons of people lined up in advance and the uglier side of "free stuff" in action.

I've stayed in many motels, but none as nice as this one. The STAFF is absolutely wonderful, making certain you are comfortable and fed.

the rooms are large, the beds comfortable, the breaksfast will fill you up, and the evening snacks are a meal in themselves. Won't stay any place else in B'ham.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. We have stayed on both sides and even by the elevator...never noisy

I felt really spoiled here for a one night stop with 2 dogs and a bunny. The hotel room itself was great. The bed was comfy and perfect. The staff was friendly. The dogs were free. The hotel price was like $113 and charged for an extra person I think it was like $15, usually I wouldn't go for this, but since the dogs were free I thought 15 bucks wasn't bad. Free breakfast and drinks. They also have free food and drinks from 5-7 pm which is great. They had a security person, which they don't need but it was nice to have one. I'm definitely staying again on the way back from my road trip.

I stayed at the Drury 17-19Sept, 2011. I attended the Premiere Hair Show at the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center. I enjoyed the free 530 kickbacks for hot dogs, baked potatoes, free mixed drinks. There was no need for a supper. For breakfast, there was scrambled eggs, Belgian waffles, assorted cereals, apple juice, orange juice, milk, yogurt, sausage, biscuits and gravy. Popcorn and soft drinks were available throughout the day. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The 37 inch LG flat screen TV was just like ours at home. The front desk staff, especially Diamond, was very helpful and friendly. I have no complaints, only compliments! The indoor/outdoor pool was inviting as well as the jacuzzi. There were several fast food restaurants or nicer restaurants within walking distance if one wanted something more. If I need to stay in this area again, I will definitely be back!

I chose to stay here for one night based in part on the glowing reviews on this site. I totally agree with the favorable comments about the quality of the accommodations and the friendly customer service. We had a wonderful, restful break after along day of driving. The staff made a point of going the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed, and were especially attentive to my elderly Mom. The free food was a life-saver on the night of Sept 5 as TS Lee was bearing down on Birmingham. We will definitely look for other Drury Inns in our future travels!

We were recently without power for almost a week and finally went to stay at a Drury Inn for a couple of nights. I was very impressed with the place, particularly the extras that came with the room. There was an amazing continental breakfast every morning, but even better than that was the snack time in the evening. There was enough food to make a meal out of it! Everything from nachos to hot dogs to salad and baked potatoes! That made the already reasonable cost of the room even more attractive.
