“Better than a tent”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

This is an old motel that seems to cater to construction workers and long-term guests. Even though we had group reservations and we arrived later than anticipated, our rooms weren't ready. It took a long time to finally get our room assignments. One room's AC didn't work, and another room's lock/key mechanism didn't work. There were only 2 towels per room, and the front-desk didn't have enough extras for everyone to have one towel. The pool is supposed to be open until 10 pm but the construction workers bullied us for using it and threatened to have us arrested for disturbing their sleep at 9pm (which the hotel management condoned.) The "full breakfast" consists of cereal, old fruit, and stale Lego waffles individually wrapped in plastic wrap. It beats sleeping in the rain in a tent, but that's about it.

It was not bad at all. My hubby is from Selma so kinda scared to stay anywhere but with family. It turned out ok and it was nice having my dog have a place to be. The staff was so very nice and helpful. The room not bad just stuffy can tell its older. I'm a clean person and I looked before we got. Well stay again when we come back with dog.

Had to travel to Selma with my dogs. Only two places in Selma took dogs, America's best value and Jameson. After looking at reviews at both decided on Jameson. They had said it would $15 a night per dog, but after speaking with them, they waived the fee. The room was clean, granted the carpet was old. AC worked great. Bathroom had a jet tub. Service was friendly. Manager stopped by about 15 minutes after check in to make sure everything was ok. I read it was next to a bad neighborhood. Hmmm. This inn is next to several banks and a walgreens. Last I checked they don't put new banks in bad areas. Overall, very happy and will use Jameson again

After speaking with Terri (who gave us an excellent rate) we were excited to be visiting the area. Shirley checked us in which was hassle free and later addressed my concern ( I couldn't get my tv on) she came down to my room with the right touch. :) The room was clean and smelled very nice. Upon checkout, AJ provided us with telephone books and written materials on the area for us to offer our travelers. I would not only recommend this hotel, I will stay there again if in the area!!!

The hotel staff is top notch. Ive been going for years and mostly because of them. Hotel is clean and quiet. Some rooms are much better than others. I've had some that are more lived in...carpet more worn, etc, but overall this is a fine hotel. I will continue to stay there each trip to Selma.

After the reviews we figured it was still rated better tahn other hotels in Selma. EVERYTHING you have read BAD is true. The carpet is disgusting, i did not even want my poor dog to walk on it:( Thier was a strong deoderizer to cover up the smell, the air did not work, and the night stands, tables have not been cleaned due the fact that there was numerous stains from old soda can marks. Horriable breakfast rotten fruit. Everything was just worse. Also the neighborhood that it is located in the front of is SCARY. So much so that the lobby is locked and I had to stand to a window in the cold to check in, I should have known to cut my losses and loose the pre-paid rooms for a clean, and safe hotel somewhere else in Selma. Please take your bussiness elsewhere!!!! This place really needs a visit from the department of health.

Room Tip: Stay somwehere else!!!!
