Recent guest reviews

This is place disgusting! Traveling single female and expected a clean room and breakfast. Room smelled like Cats pee and my bed had hairs all over the sheets. Top that off, saw roaches in the breakfast area. I tried switching rooms the night before and the front desk employee stated they didnt have any other rooms to switch me too. I actually checked online to see if the hotel was sold out and they were still selling kings and doubles online that night. He totally lied to me, and I dont know why! But I will never stay here again. Horrible experience. Id rather pay the extra money and stay at a high end hotel then this dump!

The Comfort Inn was very clean and very nice. It is obvious that this hotel is well maintained and cared for. I stayed in a room with King size bed and it had all of the comforts of home. it had a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, iron and ironing board and a safe. The TV has a few Premium cable channels and a good breakfast is included in the price as well. The staff is friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a good location convenient to the interstate. I would give this hotel a 9 out of 10.

We stayed here as we were just passing through on our way to the beach. This hotel looks nice on the outside and even in the lobby. Rooms are a different story. The one we stayed in was very old and in need of remodel. Room was musty smelling and so very humid. Bed linens felt wet. Bathroom had peeling paint, tub dripped and caulking in the bathroom was very dirty as were some areas on the ceiling. Carpet looked dirty and had areas of pulling/balling. Bess were ok just seemed to be narrow, full size instead of queen. Needless to say we did not stay here on our way back.

I am a Choice Priviledges Member. I travel for a living. After I made my reservation, I called the front office to secure a ground floor room. This is after 2 pm and I'm told all the rooms are occupied and my room was to be on the 2nd floor. We checked in late that evening. The night clerk put us in a ground floor room and we were told in the morning that we wouldn't have to move. The next morning at checkout time we were told we had to move to another room. We planned on staying at least another night but if you can take care of your Diamond Members then we won't be back.

We have stayed in this Comfort Inn several times. We find Scott, one of the night managers, to be one of the very best. We love the hotel and the personnel. However, it would GREATLY improve the place IF a chair was placed in the room for guests. The only chair is at the desk and that leaves a person in a couple having to resort to sitting on the bed to watch television or whatever. It makes it very uncomfortable. The exercise center was perfect.

This place was pretty run down. Our room had an extremely odd, musty odor. Carpet was really stained and dirty looking. Tub dripped. AC didn't work very well. Front desk was pleasant. Would not stay again.

We are here for a week as a school group (6 people total) for the National Speech and Debate tournament and I was very satisfied with our stay. It really began at checkin. We arrived way before checkin time after traveling overnight and Ron at the front desk did everything he could for us. He allowed us to wait in the meeting room and worked diligently to get us our rooms as fast as possible. He was exceedingly helpful. The rooms themselves were large and clean and what I would expect from this hotel chain. Overall, I was happy with our stay here.

We were in Alabama for the Senior National Games. I found the place lacking. It is tired. Carpet in guest rooms stained. There was mold on the tiles in the shower, and pealing paint on the bathroom ceiling. An exhaust fan in the bathroom would definitely help. The ice machine on my floor was broken for my entire stay (5 nights!). Breakfast was decent for the type of hotel but the seating area is rather small, and getting a seat can be tough at times. Also, the guest room doors do not close tightly automatically. We came back to our room after housekeeping had serviced the room and found the door open. I have never stayed at a Comfort Inn so do not have much to compare with. Hyatt Place is often the same price point and in general have had far better experiences there.

We booked online while we were traveling..... from other reviews etc thought it would be a good pick, it was disappointing. It does not seem to be in the best part of town, just a few things around there as for restaurants there are much better locations in Birmingham I am certain, we just did not know and were exhausted. We asked the front desk person if our rooms could be side by side, we had 4 young adults with us all of them 19 and wanted to be close to them but he could not accomodate he said....the room next to us was empty all night? Does not seem like he even tried. Room was outdated, smelled like some type of air freshener to cover up some other type of smell. Hotel was quiet at night. Breakfast was typical for hotel. I would not stay here again. I wish I could remember the man at the front desk when we checked in....just not friendly and kind of pompous. Paid just over $150 per room should have been more like $65.00.

My room was musty. A little room deodorizer would go a long way. The bathroom ceiling had pealing paint and mold due to the broken exhaust fan. The door was also chipped. The room would be fine if they gave it a fresh coat of paint and either replace the rug or give it a good steam cleaning.
