Don't do itPosted Jul 17, 2016
It was gross. I kinda knew it would be...but it was a lived in stained motel. Staff was nice enough...but you can't sleep on or eat staff...so that's not good enough for a hotel.

Seen better daysPosted May 3, 2016
Pros: The manager was very helpful when we were trying to check in.
Cons: The whole place is old and run down. It needs a major overhaul.
Location: There were restaurants and a Walmart nearby and a Shell gas station.
Had to change rooms 3 times on check in. First room was next to a building that had burned and smelled like smoke. Second room air conditioner did not work. Finally kept 3rd room.

Negative reviewPosted Apr 25, 2016 on Hotels
Thermostat was broken; could not adjust room temperature. Heater button in bathroom did nothing, so could not take a shower as it was uncomfortably cool. Soap dispensers were empty. No signs to an ice machine; no ice bucket if there was one; no trays in kitchen freezer so could not make ice. No guide to help find TV channels I might want to look at. Did not spend more time in room than I had to; will not stay there again. No paper towels in men's restroom in main building for 2 days I was there. I was with 2 friends who stayed there and agree that, if they visit Birmingham again, they will not stay at the Rime.

Definitely not a good place to bring your family many people live here and it is very sketchy
very poor establishment!Posted Feb 1, 2016 on Hotels
The room was cold,dirty,falling apart and stinky! We slept in our clothes and didn't dare try and shower since there were cracks in the grout and tiles falling out. The rooms that are shown on the website DO NOT match what we had. We DO NOT recommend this place!

Large suite but little accomodationPosted Jan 19, 2016
Pros: Free airport shuttle at 3 AM. I didn't get a chance to try the buffet breakfast.
Cons: The hotel needs to have at least one person for housekeeping. I saw 2 slips at the reception desk for room repairs.
The temperature outside was 50 degrees, but the suite was 80 with the heater already running on high. The door was labeled No Smoking, but the suite reeked of cigarette smoke. There was no soap bag in either the foam dispenser above the tub or over the sink. ["The soap is locked up in Housekeeping."] The wifi was inactive. I was given a key to another room: no soap either, less cigarette smell. I was given a key to a 3rd room: soap in one dispenser, but the bed was still unmade. So I stayed in the first room and used my own bar of soap.

Decrepit condition, nice staffPosted Dec 28, 2015
Very inexpensive but the conditions of the rooms make any price too much. First room was supposed to be nonsmoking, smelled like an ashtray, broken sofa, dead roaches, no screens on window, door was kicked in sometime in the past, couldn't call the front desk-phone broken. Second room only nominally better. Booked the same day with Expedia therefore couldn't get a refund. Otherwise would have gone elsewhere-FAST!

Not what I thoughtPosted Dec 5, 2015
Tub was clogged,toilet was shaking , the air conditioner sounded like a hibernating bear. And if you are going to have a kitchen why not supply pots who in the world travels with pots and pans. Remote control didn't work and they had this little television. Boy they need to upgrade and 3 little flat pillows on a king sized bed. I won't be back
