“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

I enjoyed my 2 night stay. The Staff was great upon check in. The room was clean & very nice. Easy access to the internet, the interstate and eateries. It was 4.7 miles away from the venue I went for but the price was great. The breakfast was also very decent. My room faced the rear of the building so I didn't have an issue with highway noise. I would agree that they can change to larger pilliows but otherwise I was very satisfied.

This is a convenient place to stay for visiting Samford. I don't know if it just a Hampton thing, but the shower heads in the bathrooms are not very good. Plus if you are shorter like me, 5'3", I could not even reach the head to move it around. Either this location has extremely poor water pressure or the shower heads are just not efficient. I felt like I had to run around the shower to get rinsed off. Some of the Hiltons in Europe had lovely adjustable shower heads on sliding vertical bar mounts. GREAT feature. Plus if you are going to the trouble to have the nice queen high counters, why not queen high toilets. It seems weird to me super high shower heads, tall counters and then midget toilets. Plus I do wish the Hilton line would convert to Kuerig coffee makers for those of us who like to travel with our own K-cups. Overall a nice very CLEAN place.

Not only is it close. It's close!!! The traffic noise from the freeway is loud, but not as loud as the in room air conditioner.

it was HOT !!! When I checked in the temp was 78, when I left the next day it was 77. They did bring me a fan, but it was not a good night's rest.

it was COLD!!! Then when I took a shower the water took 10 minutes to heat up.

I already cancelled my reservation for later this week as I pass back through.

Room Tip: upon check in request a room opposite the freeway side

Nothing special, Reggie behind the desk was very helpful. Breakfast was the standard hotel fare. It is right next, almost on the highway. I wish all hotels/motels would get rid of those small pillows on the beds.

Our son, a college student has stayed at the Hampton Inn I65/Lakeshore twice in the last six months. His most recent stay was last Sunday. The hotel is newly remodeled and has a fresh crisp look and feel. The service and staff are outstanding. Our son had a standup paddle board he needed to get in the hotel overnight, and Reggie was able to get him a nice first floor room. Reggie was also very helpful with the reservation process. The hotel is conveniently located on I65 just outside Birmingham. He told me, Dad, you have to write a great review...I love this hotel. Reggie, thanks for taking care of our son.

This was our first time at this very nice Hampton Inn. It is located right off I-65 and Lakeshore Parkway, giving easy access to get around Birmingham. It took us only about 15 minutes to get to the airport. Visiting my sister in Vestavia was a snap. Samford University is just a mile or so east on Lakeshore. The hotel is located in a business park on the extreme northeast corner. Restaurants of all kinds are close by and a multitude of small business, like the UPS store we used. Directly across Lakeshore Parkway is a shopping center with a super Walmart and a Sam's Club. The hotel itself was clean and quiet, in typical Hampton Inn style. The only "quirk" was in the bathroom, involving the sink faucet: the spigot barely clears the vanity edge. It is impossible to get your full hand(s) under the stream of water. I have a travel water pik and I could not fill it without water pooling on the vanity. Other than that small inconvenience, this is still a fine Hampton Inn and we hope to stay there again.

Room Tip: There is a large dumpster on the backside of the hotel ( the side not facing I-65) and there was a t...

Everything was great, minus the breakfast. The Great ~ The staff was fast and very helpful. We were close to everything and a lot of food choices in the area. The Not So Great ~ the breakfast consisted of hard biscuits, watery gravy, rotten apples, and horrible eggs made from powder.
