I stayed for one night and it was great! Clean, comfortable bed, big room, and bathroom.. However, they do charge a $25 dollar deposit fee which I was unawhere of upon check-in, but I know for next time. Will definitely stay there again.

Terrible rooms

Horrible experience. The room was warm when we got there. We turned the AC down to 65 but was still hot all night long. The beds were so uncomfortable and every time my daughter turned over in her bed, the bed would creak like it was fixing to fall apart. I stood at the front counter waiting to ask a question. When the lady came up there, I started telling her what I needed. In the middle of me talking, she tells me to hang on and then answers the phone. I didn't mind her answering the phone, but she should have asked them to hold. However, she didn't. She helped them and then let me finish talking to her. Needless to say, we checked out early and had to still pay for the night we didn't stay.

I travel quite a bit and enjoy Hilton Garden Inns but this is one of the more poorly run locations. I have had problems nearly every time I have stayed here on issues large and small. Would not recommend this location.

Disappointing, but not terrible

Pros: Location
Cons: Softer mattresses, functional amenities
We opted to spend a little more and stay at the Hilton for my sister's graduation from UAB in April 2016. We should have saved our money. The hotel was clean and we didn't have any major issues, but the hot tub was out of service the entire time we were there. That was one of the big selling points for this hotel, as our mother's favorite part of traveling is using the hotel hot tub. We asked the front desk staff if they knew when it would be fixed, but even though they promised they would look into it and get back with us, we received an "I don't know" every time we checked back in. Our other big qualm was the mattresses, which were hard as rocks. I do like a softer mattress, so perhaps the beds would work for someone who likes firm mattresses, but we did not sleep well the entire time we were there. The front desk staff was hit or miss, but the bar tender was also very helpful. We didn't even buy anything, we only borrowed glasses for wine/champagne, but he was nice and very accommodating.

Nice hotel, close to mc donalds.

Posted Mar 22, 2016
Pros: It was clean and reasonably priced.
Cons: The hotel staff needs more training on customer service.
Location: Mc. Donalds is nearby in case you are hungry for a late night snack.
The reception desk woman was not very pleasant. The room was comfortable. When checking out the reception desk woman was missing, she was in the back for about 5 minutes and another worker had to get her so that I could check out. It would be nice if they offered express check-out by phone. All I needed to do was return the keys.
