This is a standard Hampton Inn (this is a positive) with the advantage of being brand new (opened in April 2009). Rooms are nice with flat screen TV, nice layout and comfortable beds. My room had a refrigerator and a microwave, but these are not usually standard in Hampton Inns, so this may not be typical of all rooms. Has a pool, a small, but well equipped fitness room; a small business center that offers 24 hour free internet. The usual Hampton Inn “continental plus” breakfast (pastries, bread, bagels, cereal, fruit , coffee, juice and a few hot dishes) is included in the room rate. The breakfast area is exceptionally nice.
The staff are very efficient and pleasant and are eager to make a good impression at a new property.
The location is just off I-20, but far enough away so there is no traffic noise. It is 8 minutes to the airport. The only drawback is that there are no restaurants adjacent to the hotel; there are several fast food and chain restaurants about a mile and half away. In needed a hotel near the airport; there doesn’t seem to be much else nearby, but I’m not at all familiar with Birmingham. Of the half a dozen hotels I passed on the way from the airport, this looked like the best and is certainly the newest.
I would stay here again without hesitation.
NB – there is a Logan’s Roadhouse (a chain sit-down place) among the places on the main drag near the hotel. It was quite pleasant; good service, good food, reasonable prices.
