My wife and I spent the weekend here for a football game at the University of Alabama and enjoyed a neat, clean room, a very friendly and accommodating staff. Other Alabama fans were here too and several told me it was their go-to hotel when attending an event at the university. Highly recommended.
I had the opportunity to spend nearly 2 months at this property due to an extended business trip. For most of that time I was upgraded to a Suite. In all honesty the suite is not that much bigger than a room with a King size bed. The only thing you get perhaps is an extra TV and a couch.
The room was not that spacious but adequate. There are electrical outlets (could be more) in all the expected places. A comfortable work desk which I made full use of. The WiFi is extremely spotty. At first my computer wouldnt even connect to the internet at the hotel. The front desk was completely useless in trying to get this resolved. I was given a toll free tech support line after about 90 minutes of various attempts and they solved it in 5 minutes! But in general, the WiFi is very dodgy. Comes and goes all the time.
They were having the USA Today and just like that, one day, they stopped getting the paper. No explanation (besides cost cutting I guess) just stopped getting the paper!!!
The breakfast is adequate, I am not much of a breakfast person, so cant comment much on this. The staff at breakfast are super and always eager to please.
The cleaning staff at this property are outstanding. Do an outstanding job, not only of the room, but the general area outside. This property gets very low marks on 'environmental friendliness'. They have these fancy signs that say that if we hang up the towels they wont wash it. EVERY DAY I hung up my towel, and they washed it anyway. No training, just words!
I used the Laundry (coin operated) facility several times. There are guests that worked at some kind of Iron ore processing facility nearby. They had a lot of black dust on their clothes. They would wash their clothes in the Washer and leave black soot for other residents to deal with. Nasty, nasty stuff. Completely inconsiderate!
They have a basic fitness room. Couple of treadmills and an elliptical machine. No weights or nautilus equipment.
Got a very good rate that made it affordable for an extended stay. The room has a mini fridge, coffee maker and a microwave. The AC seemed to have a mind of its own. Temperature was the same regardless of what you set it on for the most part.
Overall, good value for the money.
