Average hotel but a trouble-free stay

A bit of a pain that there are separate buildings for the check in, where my room was, and where the breakfast is. Otherwise, my room was clean (it's not new, so it felt a little old and was very muggy) but the bathroom was very clean. The breakfast was very good. Overall, average for the rate - I don't have any complaints.

Great Hotel Centrally Located in Huntsville...

Across from Huntsville best BBQ (Dreamland), the hotel was central, clean, modern and spacious. I was impressed with the value and would say it was one of the best during my last road trip. The free breakfast is in a separate building - which was a little odd - but the variety was great. The best breakfast spread of my trip in fact. I would recommend this hotel and plan to stay there when business brings us back to Huntsville Alabama...

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk across the street and have the Dreamland BBQ - it is southern hospitality personified. Have a rack, their special sauce and top it off with pecan pie... "it's some good "... After 10:00 pm all restaurants but Chillis down the street shuts down at 11:00 pm by he way during the week - so try to eat earlier than we did one night. Chillis has last call for alcohol at 10:30 pm unfortunately!

Convenient to UAH

We were in town to check out UAH for our son who is considering attending there this fall. Coming from out of town and not knowing the area at all, we were primarily looking for a hotel close to campus that we could trust would be clean and safe. This one fit the bill. It was clean and comfortable, and we would stay here again. The free breakfast is a full breakfast. You can choose eggs and a breakfast meat (bacon, ham, or sausage links, depending on the day). Also available each day are biscuits with sausage gravy and a pancake maker, as well as cereal, sweet rolls, bagels, muffins, juice, milk, and coffee. Our only disappointment--the free shuttle from the airport does not run on Saturday. It cost us $30 for a taxi.

We'd stay here again

This hotel was perfect for us, we needed a place over night and had a great breakfast in the morning. The pancake maker was out of order, but there was plenty of other items to choose from.

Friendly, professional staff & a good location

This place made breakfast, the most anticipated meal of the day. The staff remembered us from last year & we look forward to seeing them again next year. The location was close between downtown @ the VonBraun Arena for graduation & the family gathering in Madison.
