Birmingham Worst Inn

Would not recommend Sat, Oct 18, 2014
This was a terrible hotel, even for a budget one. The first room they gave us was dirty and had insects crawling in the bathtub. After we complained, they gave us another room. This was slightly better, but the seats were so dirty, we wouldn't dream of seating on them! Luckily, we only needed to sleep at night there so got on with it.

Would not recommend Sat, Oct 18, 2014
Rude staff, filthy room, when I complained and was moved, the next room was just as bad. Nothing worked. Checked in late so no alternative. Slept fully dressed, as I didn't want to get in the bed

Strangest Hotel ever

Would not recommend Sat, Jun 1, 2013
Was incredibly glad we had only booked one night here as we managed to laugh about it rather than cry! Even on entering the hotel it was somewhat bizarre. You are faced with a flight of stairs which take you up to the reception desk. Having got our key (yes a real metal key!) we were given directions to our room, something like ' go through this door, turn right then left, take the next right then left then right, go down steps go up steps go right then left then right then right then the room is on left!!! The room itself was large with two windows who's curtains were hanging on for dear life and were impossible to close. The kettle plug would not fit in the socket without us first rearranging the furniture and we had 3 cups between four of us. There were numerous pictures hung on the wall and none of them were hung straight! The room, which was supposed to be non smoking smelled of stale cigarettes and had an overall feel of something from the Adams Family. The free wi fi was not available in all the rooms we were informed and when we tried to access it in the main reception area it was not available there either! Having slept in our respective beds each on our single very flat pillow, we got up and went down for the breakfast we had paid a supplement for. There was absolutely no sign of anything edible to be found! The lad on the desk made a phone call and told us to wait in the lounge area. 10 -15 min later we were informed that the guy in charge of breakfast wasn't coming. Apparently he had not turned up for some two weeks. When asked why they hadn't sacked him the reception guy shrugged and said it was a separate concern for which he had no concern! On venturing through the downstairs labyrinth looking for the WC we went through a strange mix of Victorian shop fronts, all empty and into an area that looked like it had been some kind of museum in its former days! So the two criteria we used to book the hotel - free Wi fi and breakfast - were never really there in the first place and to be honest this hotel, though an interesting experience, has yet to move into the 20th century never mind this one!

Money saver

Mc Donald's just along the road is an option for wi fi and breakfast.

Would recommend Mon, Jan 28, 2013
I stayed at this hotel and found it better then previous reviews had suggested, I would gladly stay here again for the price I paid(£17.50), The location was perfect for my needs and was able to check in early, I had a member of staff come and ask me if I needed anything to which I answered no as I had 2 clean towels, Clean bedding and clean room, Although I spent most my time out my room and only used as somewhere to sleep, I slept perfectly and have no complaints about my stay

Great Price but Abysmal Bed

Would recommend Tue, Feb 14, 2012
Me and my sister only paid £25 for this room and used it as a rest place in order to go to Spring Fair International at the NEC. Her bed was OK but mine could be squeezed to about a 1cm thickness with 1 hand, that's how bad it was. I had to lay down the 2 towels we got on top of it in a vein attempt to get more comfort. If both beds were like hers this Inn would have got a 5* result purely for the price of it, but the springs in the face brought it down.
