The hotel WiFi and the bang for the buck with this hotel cannot be beat in the Fultondale, Alabama (northern Birmingham, AL) area. The hotel was rebuilt/remodeled, and opened in June 2013. My room felt like I was the first person to use it. Everything about the hotel is new.
The hotel WiFi is free, and high speed, even at night when people are watching movies on their tablets.
The flatscreen TV in my room is 1080p, however, the cable TV is just analog.
There are two unattached buildings in the hotel complex, separated by a park that has a picnic table, and some lawn furniture; a nice place to relax at the end of the day. There is no swimming pool. The main wing with 100 and 200 numbered rooms is near Decatur Highway, the 300 & 400 numbered suites are in a separate wing located a little up a hill. I stayed up the hill in the 300 section, directly in front of my room. There is a dog walk area, complete with a bright red fire hydrant, just to the south of the 300/400 building.
I tested the WiFi & Internet speed with Speedtest.net at 3.7 MB/sec down, and 2 MBs up. With Speakeasy.net, the WiFi & internet speed tested at 4.06 MB/s download, and 2.06 MB/s upload at 530PM on a Tuesday afternoon. WiFI software indicates they are running 802.11 N in the 2.4 GHZ band only; the 5 GHZ band is not used, so 802.11AC is not supported. There was *no* interference on the WiFi from adjacent business. Overall, guests should get a good WiFi experience.
I prefer hotels with an inside hallway, however, this hotel has all rooms with external access. I learned that I like that I can park right in front of my room, and carry my bags inside in 2 or 3 steps.
The breakfast is a buffet style, with fresh bacon, eggs, and the usual continental items, such as toast, yogurt, cereal, and fruit.
The only improvement I would recommend is they have a business office, or a guest computer & printer available. If one needs airline boarding passes, the front desk will print them for guests.
