Recent guest reviews
The room appeared to have been updated, though smallish. Bed was very comfortable, amenities and breakfast very adequate, clean. The desk staff is young, personable, and helpful. We had no freeway noise
I stayed here on October 4th. The building and grounds are well maintained the lobby is well lit and inviting. I arrived a little early in the day but Michelle checked me in quickly and she made sure I had the WiFi password and directions to my room. The room was perfectly clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall, a great place to stay while in Anniston or Oxford.
Situated just of the I20 the hotel was located between other branded hotels and restaurants. Check was friendly and the room was in a separate building to the rear. There was a pool which looked clean. There was a very short walk to the Cracker barrel restaurant behind and above the hotel. The room was clean and with 1 queen bed which was the highest I have ever experienced, I could of done with a step to up on to it. There was evidence of a recent refurbishment but the sockets were old and there was a stain (not bodily) on the loo seat which spoilt the bathroom some what. Breakfast was plentiful with the usual offerings. A short drive and there was plenty of retail and restaurants. I would recommend staying here for cleanliness and convenience.
After driving almost 6 hours, it was time to stop but we, a party of 12, didn't have a hotel or plan to stop anywhere. We didn't have to look far because this hotel in Oxford/Anniston was able to accommodate us. When you driving off the interstate make a right then a left at the next light, you drive down and see a lot of hotels swallowing this one until you come around left at the stop sign. This one has 2 levels, no elevator. The first room had wrinkled sheets so we asked for another one. Breakfast was good, cereal, hot cereal, waffles, etc. The lady working to fill and clean the area was so nice, except she was an Alabama fan. lol. Overall, good one night stay.
We arrived after midnight. There was an issue with checkin. James was the employee on duty. We made the reservation with the reservation line for Choice Hotels. After the checkin issues were resolved, we entered the room which was 2 beds non smoking 2nd floor near interstate. The room looked recently refurnished. We were pleased. Beds were excellent with high, clean, comfy mattresses. Room was clean. Microwave and fridge provided. Air conditioner worked well and kept room cool. The room met our needs. Would recommend.
My husband and I were on our way to our honeymoon in Myrtle Beach. We decided we were too sleepy and needed to stop and sleep. It was around 1:30 in the morning. The outside of the hotel looked very cozy and nice. And online at Hotels.com, we saw that it was decently priced. Upon entering our room, it was probably 90 degrees in there. I understand that it was extremely hot outside, but I don't think there is an excuse for the air being off. It took a good hour and a half for it to cool down. My husband and I had to stay awake because we were sweating so much. While my husband took a shower, I noticed the cigarette burns in the bedspread. I go to pull back the covers and see a few dark black long hairs on the pillows. I knew it wasn't mine considering my hair is light brown, and I had not even been on the bed yet. There were stains on the pillow cases and in the sheets. I had to take every pillowcase off just so we could sleep. The smell was overwhelming in the pillowcases and sheets. I felt extremely nasty sleeping in that bed. When we woke up in the morning, our microwave did not work. Also, we checked in at 1:30 am, but at 7:50 in the morning, we woke up to beating on our door saying "housekeeping". I had to yell twice that my husband and I were still sleeping., because she kept knocking. We were extremely displeased with our stay, and very exhausted. A hotel is a place you go to sleep and relax. This place provided the opposite. I complained the next morning in a very nice and respectful way, because I am not a rude person. The woman said there was nothing she could do because "the manager wasn't there." We will never return to a Quality Inn again, especially the one in Oxford Alabama! There was no quality here. It is not difficult to simply clean your sheets. We will definitely not return, and we will make sure we spread the word!
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. On the way back from a business trip we stopped here due to being stuck in heavy rain, it was after 9 pm, and we are part of the Choice Rewards program and I wanted to accumulate more points. Desk clerk was fine but made a comment about us being lucky to have clean sheets because of something that happened this past weekend, cigarette butts all over property, worn carpet in our room, a lamp missing next to the bed, the shower curtain rail falling off the wall, no juices at breakfast, no milk at breakfast, no meat and few eggs at breakfast and very dirty tables in the breakfast room. Unhealthy and unhygenic. This place is terrible.
The room was ok. My comforter had cigarette burns in it. The carpet was stained with patches of carpet missing. I stopped here traveling to Houston. The value was not that great. I will spend a few extra bucks and choose another property in the vicinity.
Sleep in your car, this place is nasty. The room stunk, the smell of body odor was overwhelming. I went to the office and they gave me something to spray. There was a cigarette burn in the bedspread, there was enough mold on the shower curtain to grow my own penicillin. The shower curtain was barely hanging on the wall, the rod was bent, the toilet seat was cracked. The only sink in the room apparently used to be from a wet bar, it was so high you had to stand on your tip toes to get a drink...and I am 6'2", my 5'4" wife had no chance. She got bit by something near the sink and I got bit while in bed. The front door had just been painted, there was over spray everywhere. The A/C worked good and the breakfast was ok and the people friendly.... my friend stayed in an adjacent room where the shower head was held on with a rubber band. I would NEVER stay here again.
photos speak for themselves - stained everything from sheets to toilet seat. In town for race weekend and rooms are scarce which is how they can get away with selling in this condition. If you must stay here, bring flip flops for shower, general walking on floors
