"Not worth the cost!"
The check in clerk was wonderful. From there down hill. Not enough towels and we called for more. No one ever brought them though they assured us a maintenance man would. Room not clean, seemed very worn and had an odor. Pillowcases clean, but pillows smelled and it was very disturbing, but as late as we checked in we had little choice but to stay. […] When we left, clerk was very courteous. This facility needs to be renovated or torn down! Exterior was very much in need of repair and paint. We were very disappointed in this place for the price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Bit Eerie"
This is a very weird place. I was expecting something decent/nice like Holiday Inn but this place was more like an apartment complex. It's like a motel with a lot of different buildings, and I had to drive around for 10 minutes before I could find the building I was assigned to. The rooms were not as nice as I expected - I've honestly seen nicer furnishings/quality […] at Econolodge or Super 8. The first room they gave me was not clean so they switched me to a different one. The place had kind of an eerie feel to it, I felt a bit uncomfortable staying there alone. I would avoid this place if I were you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Easy in and out from the interstate. The exterior was in very bad shape. This property appeared to be an old apartment complex that was converted to a motel. The room was spacious but just didn't feel clean. There was only one remote for the two tvs and it didn't work on either tv.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great. would stay their again."
the room was comfortable. did not want for anything. everyone was friendly. felt safe due to location, gates and lighting.Genuine Expedia guest review
"BEWARE OF ONE STAR PRETENDING TO BE 3 STAR"
THIS HOTEL IS IN A PERFECT LOCATION TO EVERYWHERE IN THE BIRIMINGHAM AREA. THE STAFF WERE KIND, AND WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MEET OUR NEEDS. BOOKED A STANDARD ROOM-IT WAS THE WORST EVER-SMELLED, DIRTY SHEETS, OLD CARPET...NOT GOOD AT ALL. THE MANAGER MOVED US TO A NEWLY REMODELED SUITE...STILL NOT A 3 STAR HOTEL.

"In Transit To Taladega"
Rooms are older and in need of some repairs, that said they were satisfactory for an overnight stay. The check-in staff were very nice and accomidating for our needs. And house keeping staff was also very nice and prompt tho the point that they hand delivered extra towels to our room, that were still warm from the dryer. As otheres have noted this is […] a apartment complex that has been turned in to a hotel. The Rooms are very spacious. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was wonderful to be picked up at the airport late at night when the car rentals were closed...they picked up and dropped back off. Check in was fine and they droped by the room. We had to move into another room due to the air conditioner was not working properly. But the stay was short.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A home away from home"
The apartment like rooms makes you feel at home more than being at a hotel. The property has been maintained however the small issues like the shower head in my room had no pressure at all. The bathroom counter was coming unattached from the wall. very small issues. over all this a very good choice. The customer service and housekeeping staff were outstanding, […] A happy staff is very hard to find in any hotel these days Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
People were nice the carpets were stained so bad u could tell where the furniture belonged. Couch was very very old TV remotes did not work, beds were so uncomfortable, ceiling had mold on it. Says in the add on internet there was a pool and a seasonal pool nope there was only a seasonal pool kids were very disappointed. I guess the saying is right […] "you get what you pay for"!!!

"Avoid this hotel"
We had to request towels at the front desk, housekeeping didn't come by for 3 days and the bathroom had standing water every time anyone took a shower. The pool was closed (empty) even though it was in the mid-80's. The room had a mildew smell that we tried to Febreeze away, to no avail.Genuine Expedia guest review
While the desk staff was very cheerful during our check-in, it was quickly obvious that the overall facility has not seen any upkeep for quite a while. The furniture was broken and falling apart, beds very substandard, and generally not very clean. The exterior of the buildings had numerous places of rotting wood, had not seen fresh paint in MANY y […] ears. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Do not stay here"
The quality of service and room were terrible. The rooms are used for short term apartments and are not clean, or well upkept.Genuine Expedia guest review
"ok if the price was right, if not, may disappoint."
This location was set up like a timeshare with a central office and multiple pod housing surrounding it. The place had long term housing and hotel all in one location. I am sure these units were in tip top condition in the 1980's. The furniture appears not to have been replaced since them. The room was without towels, which after a 30 minutes the front […] desk called me back to come down and get. Water was pooling on the kitchen floor. The rooms were big and breakfast was hot. I don't know how it got the same ranking as Holiday Inn or others. Fortunately, I got the room on a deep discount. If not, I really would be disappointed Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't expect much."
This hotel had 2 1/2 stars. At best is should be a 2 star. It did have a hot breakfast which was warm at best and the selection was very limited. The second day we were there they only had country ham slices, grits, cold toast, and gravy. The rooms were very large but quite old. The business center was useless. It took at least 10 minutes to connect […] to the internet and I was never able to print from an email. Most of the residents appeared to be long term renters. It was overall adequate considering the price. But that is about it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Handicapped accommodations deplorable"
Handicapped accommodations need a total makeover ... room was deplorable and should be condemned ... mold, mildew and rotting plaster are a health danger especially to someone with health problems, like breathing, lung or respiratory. The front desk staff was very nice when I requested a different room and I had no problem moving to another room (non-handicapped) […] which was 100% better than the handicapped room. I like the feel of this hotel and the nearby area and would probably stay here again but I will not reserve a handicapped room. I'd rather take my chances with a regular room.

"Hotel in Irondale"
I was shocked at the condition of our room. The carpet was so stained/dirty I did not want to take my shoes off. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall in areas. Instead of soap in wrapped individual packets, there were soap dispensers in the shower/tub area and on the wall by the sink!! The TV remotes did not match the TV therefore did not work. There […] was duct tape on an old air conditioner (no longer in use I think). We would have left immediately if we had not been assured that due to a local convention, all the rooms had been taken in a 10 mile radius. For the rate charged for that room, we should have been paid to stay there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extra person charges"
We were extremely happy when from the time we checked in. The staff was prompt and very helpful and even gave us a choice of another room if we were unsatisfied with the one we were assigned to, but it was not necessary. We were very pleased with our room, clean and spacious and just as described in the Hotels.com search. I am disabled and actually […] in Birmingham, Al for three days of tests and procedures.I had some special requests because of my disability and they met every one. Free buffet breakfast was offered and it was very good with a large variety of options. Not just a muffin and coffee like most offer. Although we didn't use it, the pool was nice and the pool area was a nice place to relax in the evening. The location was right off the interstate with a large variety of stores and restraunts within a half mile from the hotel and easy to get to and from without getting lost. The A\C and all appliances worked well and met every need for our use. It was very quiet and easy to sleep without interuption. The beds were soooo comfortable and the matresses were not worn out. Closet space was suficiant but needed more hangers. Bathroom was roomy and shower had great pressure. Overall we were extremely satisfied and for what we paid for the room through Hotels.com,our expectations were not only met but far exceeded what we were prepared to accept. Thanks Rime Garden Inn and Suites and thanks Hotels.com. We look forward to many more enjoyable experiences like this in our travels. God Bless. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lots of room"
Loved the room! Felt more like being at home than anywhere I have stayed. If you want lots of room and quiet, this is the place. If you want coffee (not decaf) or soap and shampoo then this is not the place for you! If you like your pillows more than pancakes, this is not the place for you! Loved having the balcony to smoke on in the non smoking room. […] If the ice maker had worked in the fridge (since there is no ice machine) then the stay would have been great! The breakfast was one of the best I've had in a while. Great place for an extended stay! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I don't know what year the hotel opened but it may have the original carpet. It was vacuumed and appeared clean but there were definitely battle scars all around. The bedding was also pretty worn and not very comfortable. BYOS, Bring Your Own Soap/Shampoo. A soap dispenser in the shower?? That was a first. Overall the room was presentable but not a […] place I would recommend or return to. It was probably a great place to stay "back in the day". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Kind of a run down old place. My room was huge but it was very hot and took over 3 hours to cool down. The quality of furniture was excellent tho - beds were hard. Once in the day this was a top notch place - now.... not so much.Genuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was dark and creepy. The door was unlocked on arrival, and combined with the dark stairwell, it seemed unsafe. Room was large, but blanket had a big hotel, and just the oveall sense was creapiness.Genuine Expedia guest review

"close to EWTN"
Hotel staff were polite, pleasant, accomodating, and hospitable. outside of hotel could use some work. Concrete around pool and accomodations should be repaired and cleaned. Leave coffee available for guests -early risers. If you plant to visit EWTN, it is just up the road. I hope to return next year, but hope the grounds will be improved. It is called […] Rime Gardens There is so much potential for garden flowers to dress up and improve the grounds. The grounds back up into a wooded area on a hill. It could be so lovely.

"Rime Garden Inn - Nice once, but not not so much."
This was a nice facility at one time, but it has not been well maintained. If your stay is in the summer plan to get there early, turn on the A/C and leave for a couple of hours so the room can cool down. The sheets would not stay on the bed and the mattress was split. The shower curtain was frayed. The hair dryer was falling off the wall. The breakfast […] buffet was put out first thing in the morning and was not replenished or kept warm. These are just a few examples, there were more issues with the room. The 3 1/2 star rating is way too high. I would not give it over 1 1/2 stars. I would not stay there again.

"Lots of Space Doesn't Make Up for the Space"
This property has the feel of a condos converted into nightly rental/motel space. Lots of room -- living area, kitchen, and huge bedroom. My room was on the second level. I had to "feel" my way to the room because the stairway was poorly lit -- completely dark at one point. Breakfast was included in the price. However, when I went to the lobby at 6:45am, […] there was no sign that it would be ready. I asked the desk clerk about it. She said, "He's preparing it now. I'm sure it will be ready soon." It appeared that this was a regular occurance. I had an early appointment, so I left to find breakfast somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not stay here!!!!!"
Not at all what was described on-line. The hotel needs to be updated. The rooms and reception area needs to be totally updated.

"Very Unusual-not updated apt turns hotel"
The "rooms" are 1980's apartments - great bones, big rooms, nice layout. Except they haven't been updated, the carpet was filthy, and I had to help a spider down the bathtub drain. The breakfast was great - real food, real waiter, real silverware, but the lobby was dark and dingy as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is not really a hotel, but a low-income apartment complex. Our room was nothing like the photos shown. There are however a few decent rooms. After the tenant above us overflowed their toilet and flooded our room, we did get moved into a better room at 3 am. The maintenance man told us this happens a lot. Sewage was flooding into our room […] and on our stuff and they told us to wait while they figured out what was wrong. The management didn't seems to care and only offered us one free night after we had checked out and left messages for three days. Our room did not have working internet or a hairdryer and the management promised to fix this but didn't. I could go on and on, but DON'T STAY HERE! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good place to stay in a pinch"
Hotel is older facility. We stayed two nights. Our room wasn't cleaned once. We didn't get the towels we requested from the front desk and didn't bother to request anything further. We had to stay here due to power outages at our home due to the storms that came through. I wouldn't have stayed if we had other alternatives available.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
""Only slept there.""
It was a nice hotel to sleep at. We were not there long enough to actually use the sitting area or kitchen. The bathroom door was broken and would not shut all the way and the a/c unit was loud as it turned off. Other than that, we would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Rime Garden Inn and Suites"
I would not recommend this hotel. The carpet has cigarette burns (non smoking room). There are dead bugs on the window sill and attached to the curtains. There is cracked floor tiles in the bathroom and caulking near tub is black (mold?). The fridge seemed to be leaking (water on kitchen floor). I did not get a hand towel. I requested extra bath towel […] which I did not get until after we left for the day. We were told that the neighborhood was not very good and not to go out walking around after dark. I was very disappointed by this hotel. I will never go back there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Shampoo/Soap, Beg for Towels"
Never stayed at a hotel that did not provide shampoo/soap. When you go thrifty you go thrifty with this place. Their office confirmed they stopped providing shampoo/soap. Had to request towels and told we had to go to the office to get them they did not bring towels to rooms. Thank goodness our telephone was not working right for them to send someone […] to fix the phone cause that guy brought the towels to us. We thought we only needed a place to sleep. You take for granted the little conforts. What we saved on this room and then had to go buy shampoo/soap we could have stayed some place that included these smalls services for the same price. The kitchenett had cabinets around refigerator, dishwasher and stove, but all was empty. Thankgoodness we only had to stay 1 night, could not have stayed their longer. Just did not feel safe.

"Rime Garden Inn & Suites"
Rime Garden Inn & Suites, appeared to me to be an apartment complex in which some rooms were rented out by the night. I say this because, children were getting off the school bus and entering rooms as we arrived. I made my way to the lobby and found the staff to be less than friendly. I finely got checked in and was given poor directions to the building […] in which my suite was in. I found the suite to be older but in pretty good condition. The room had a slight odor which I took care of with a can of air freshener. The suite had two televisions, one in the bed room and one in the sitting room, neither of which had working remote control. The internet connection was wired, which meant I had to sit at the desk to use my computer. With no working remote controls for the television I thought I would watch Netflix but the connection was too slow. The sheets were clean and smelled fresh. There were only enough towels for two people so my wife and I had to share while my daughter got her own set. On top of that there were signs asking us to let the towels dry and use them again if we were staying for more than one night. There was no complementary soap or shampoo. There was however a pump foam soap dispenser by the sink and one in the shower. One of my first acts was to USE the toilet and because the exhaust fan didn't work I was the also the first to take a shower. Three minutes in I ran out of hot water. We were plagued with hot water shortages the entire stay. The next morning we were awakened by screaming, laughing and playing of the children waiting on the school bus right outside our room. The suite cost about what you would expect to pay for a single room. I understand why now. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel and perfect location if you are flynig out of the airport."
I thought this hotel was extremely comfortable. I only needed a hotel for a night, as I was flying out of the airport at 6:30 the next morning. It was so convenient that they had a shuttle that would take me to the airport and would come and pick me up when I landed, free of charge. They also didn't charge anything for me to leave my car at the hotel […] (up to 7 days). The hotel room overall was very comfortable. I recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Roomy for the price"
This hotel was very roomy and nice even though it is older and needs some upkeep (wall paper coming off, floors in disrepair). My main complaint was that it was very stripped down. No tissue in the bathroom holder, no bars of soap and the soap dispensor by the bathroom sink was empty. There was a coffee maker in the kitchen but no coffee packets. The […] complimentary breakfast didn't start until 6:30 am - not helpful when you need to leave at 6:00 to catch a flight. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not good at all!"
The hotel is REALLY old, and the rooms were hard to find. The room was really spacious. It was almost like a little apartment, but the bed was old. It smelled a little and the shower was not good at all plus the water did not go through the hole down the tub, disgusting!! Well, I think I would rather stay somewhere else, a cleaner room, even if it is […] smaller. Finally, they did not give us soap or shampoo and the breakfast was a small hot food buffet that did not look or taste good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not as nice as the pictures."
For a quick night's sleep it will do but don't think about any type of extended stay. Not close to any restaurants, unless you consider McD's a restaurant. Hotel decor and facility lacks upkeep and maintenance. A little scary of a place for a Northern boy, but people are friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay here"
Room huge but furnishings and carpet very old and worn. The room stank of old cigarette smoke (non smoking room) and one side of the bed smelled of urine. The hotel shuttle to airport was a great guy and right on time, though.Genuine Expedia guest review
