“Yellow Toenail!!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The photographer who photographed this hotel for Hotels.com was a master! The hotel and room looked amazing online. When we pulled into the parking lot, we thought we were at the wrong place. They are renovating, but we were in one of the "renovated" rooms. We pulled the comforter back for our little girls to get into bed and there was a big yellow toenail clipping under the comforter on top of the flat sheet. We called down and they brought us up new sheets, but by this time we were already disgusted and didn't want to touch anything. Then we went to make coffee and there was an old moldy coffee insert in the maker. Who knows how long it's been in there. The chair under the desk was covered in very suspicious stains of various colors of brown and in various locations... Overall, a disgusting experience. Bleach bath when I get home.

The poor condition of the hotel cannot be disputed when we purchased this hotel back in 2014 and we have since completely renovated to Quality Inn & suites along with all new bedding and much improved housekeeping standards so that in 2015 we can stand by our product along with the new indoor pool and complimentary hot breakfast

Overall ok place to rest your head for the night. Recently changed from a Fairfield Inn by Marriott. I would assume things were better then but maybe not.
When we pulled in I had some reserves about the place. Trash littered the parking lot in places and the exterior of the building was super dated. We had purchased the room off of a different site for a lesser price than what was posted by the company. With that being said had I not made non-refundable reservations I might have stopped and went somewhere else.
The room was cool when entering. Nice for a warm day. We were given a double bed room. The beds were somewhat hard but the multiple pillows on the bed made up for that. (Something left from previous franchise I would suppose). My biggest complaint was the bathroom. The floor was Nast and not well taken care of. The bathtub had stains in it and was dirty. My only other complaints was lack of an extra cover in the room. My partner is cold natured and I am hot natured so a spare cover in the room is always appreciated. Also there was only one small trash can in the whole room. The mini fridge had been removed from the room as well. Overall it was a place to rest and move on. We picked the area as we were traveling SE and wanted to be on the other side of the hustle and bustle when we left. On that note it served its purpose well.

We are now a Quality Inn and Suites when we purchased the hotel in 2014 and spent the rest of the year undergoing extensive renovations that were not done by the previous ownership. All rooms now have microwave/fridges flat screenTVs, upgraded furniture and bedding along with a heated indoor pool to compliment the interior corridor renovation that was completed by year end in 2014

Recently stayed here for one night.
Room consisted of modern flat screen tv which was great and cant remember right now wether or not a fridge but I think it did.
Hotel is back behind Chik Fil A restaurant and nearby the large outdoor shopping center.
Very easy and convenient to the interstate as well.
Breakfast was very good and staff was helpful very friendly. I would definitely return again

The staff (front desk, breakfast) where all great. The room was very nice, away from traffic noise and not overlooking parking. We where on the main floor 123. Good king bed. Great breakfast! Fruit available, scrambled eggs and sausage, toast or waffles etc.

Room Tip: Great location and can gas up in the morning just next to hotel parking.

Placed here by travel agency for a soccer tournament. Not a good place for a large group. Common spaces are practically nonexistent. There were two other teams placed here at the same time. Not a good decision.

Needs updating but staff was really nice and helpful. Appreciated that the pool was warm. Breakfast selections just ok. They were out of things quickly which was frustrating. The hotel is located on a tremendously busy road. The traffic was horrific at all times of the day.

The good news is that the updating was completed in 2014 and the traffic is a little better since the DOT have changed the signaling along HWY280. We are located behind the Chickfila/Marathon Gas station and while this highway 280 will always be busy they have cleaned up most of the issues that would slow down traffic along 280 here in Birmingham

I was caught homeless on the first day of the perfect snow storm of the US southeast 2014.
By night I still could not find a hotel room in the city and since i am a Marriott Gold Elite, I figured I would push my luck there plus there was gas station in front. They accepted my name on a three pages wait list, but said I could stay in the lobby.There was already lots of people seeking refuge.
Later they brought out food for everybody. Never asked anyone to leave. Later manager Mark at Chick Fil A next door even brought chicken sandwiches to feed us. Then he allowed whoever wanted to sleep in his restaurant. I went then to sleep on the bench. In the morning when I returned to hotel, I realized I could have rested there too.What a great service to humanity.
