I left the minute I walked in the door.

The front desk was disorganized/rude and keys did not work. I thought I was at a really bad apartment complex? Once I went back and forth and got keys that worked, I walked in to a dingy, smelly apartment like setting with dirty carpet. I walked to the thermostat and it fell off the wall, I drove to the front desk and turned in keys and RAN!

You get what you pay for.....

The first room I was given was dirty. The room smelled of smoke, the toilet had not been cleaned, and the carpet had major dirt stains. The bed sheets also seemed old and dingy. The room had no phone and was extremely hot although i had a reservation. They had no clerk to check me in, instead i was checked in by one of the cleaning ladies. The location was fine and price was great. But i guess i got what i paid for. Never again.

It was okay for a one night stay.

The lobby was very nice and the breakfast was excellent but the rooms needs renovation.

Falling apart motel

The place is virtually falling apart. Furniture had missing parts, the cover in the bed had a hole in it. There was no cover, just a sheet and the bed spread, no blanket. The refrigerator was dirty and there were no dishes or glasses in the kitchen area making the use of coffee maker obsolete. The bathroom was dirty. The "suite" smelled of mold. The breakfast room had leaks from the ceiling and peeling off wallpaper. The experience was as from a bad dream. We stayed only for one night, but if I arrived earlier I'd have looked for another place! You must be desperate to stay there. This place should not even be advertised here!

Rime Garden Inn (Birmingham)

Good location close to Birmingham airport. Security had to be called to remove previous guests belongings. Many lamps and TV not working. Poor air conditioning.

The room is simple, old furniture ; could use some updating like fresh paint, new smoke alarms, remodeled bathroom, ...truthfully the price should've been cheaper for what u get but the staff was very accommodating

Review of Rime garden

Upon visiting the room, I was not able to stay in that hotel. I ask to be refunded the room fee. I had to check in in near by Holiday Inn express. The facility is dated.

Needs updating

When I first went into the room I was impressed with the room but it went down from there. The couch had a hole in the fabric. The two TVs in were old style TVs and need to be updated to flat screen style. There were no additional condiments for the coffee maker so If you wanted it black you were good to go. Refrigerator had rust on the door and was not very inviting. Only had two sets of towels for the bathroom and they were in the closet. The bathroom had stains in the tub, toothpaste marks in the sink. Only had dispenser type soap, roof of bathroom had water damage and not properly repaired. Tile in bathroom around tub was in need of repair. Carpet in whole suite needed to be stretched. There was a dishwasher in the kitchenette area but it was screwed shut. Either fix it or remove it. Had no dishes to use but had a sign on a cabinet door asking for the dishes to clean. When I arrived I asked for the shuttle to the airport the next morning, had to call and remind them after they failed to show up on time. I could go on with the other details as there were many. The bed was comfortable but considering the shape of this suite I would not recommend this hotel.
