    « Meets Our Stop-Over Needs! »

    This is the 2nd year we have stayed at Best Western Fairwinds in Cullman, AL on our way to/from Florida. Staff is friendly, rooms are fine, they let us bring our large dog, convenient to interstate, plenty of dining options nearby, and the value is very good.

    « courteous, professional staff »

    All the staff members of this hotel display such a good attitude in making their guests feel welcomed and like being at home. From a welcome with a smile and a good morning upon entering to eat breakfast. My special thanks to Angela and Ila.

    « They have the best customer service ever! »

    I did not stay there but my niece was traveling alone and needed to find a room. We were trying to coordinate a reservation in Cullman but I was having problems. Amanda, the night clerk, helped my niece and I to secure a reservation for the night. Amanda went out of her way to assist us and it is truly appreciated. If I am ever in Cullman, BestWestern is where I will stay

    « family trip »

    We were researching family history and visiting various cemeteries on this trip. We chose Best Western for its location and pet friendly policy. Our room was comfortable and clean although it smelled of tobacco smoke even though it was a non-smoking room. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had to have our room key reactivated nightly - rather inconvenient since our room was at the end of the long wing of rooms but was fixed promptly.

    « Nice place, Good location »

    My daughter and I stayed overnight before a sporting event in a nearby town. For the most part, this hotel was quiet and clean. One area of tile grout in the bathroom shower needed a good cleaning. It may not have been sealed properly. That was the only issue I saw where cleanliness was concerned. I brought it to the manager's attention at check out and he was very appreciative for the information. The beds were really comfy, but could have used a thicker blanket. For the price I paid for the room, I thought the "little things", such as toiletries, coffee, etc. seemed to be on the cheap end. The complimentary breakfast was good and well stocked with something for everyone. Overall, this is a nice place for a short stay!

    « Would Stay There Again »

    The room and staff were lovely. Best Western is always a good choice if you're not familiar with the area, and we appreciated how quickly we were checked in. Even though we were there for a wedding, there were several brochures available in the lobby about attractions in the area. Overall good value.

    « Happy with the value and quality. Would stay again »

    Great friendly staff, clean rooms and amenities. They had a barbeque pit we noticed on the hotel pictures, so we chilled and grilled on the deck. Very nice! Only minor problems were: pillows were not as good as the rest of the room. A/C was kicking, regrigerator was COLD! Bed was very comfortable. The first day, we had to get the room keys reactivated, the second day we were packing to leave and it happened again, at least an hour before check out time! The last minor complaint was that the pool needed to be skimmed. It is a very small pool and would only take a few minutes to do so.

    « Decent play to stay! »

    Our room was fine, had all the amenities we needed for a 3 day weekend. The remodel of the bathroom is pretty nice, water pressure good. The refrigerator didn't have a freezer but almost froze items anyway. If you put the A/C on cold it will be an icebox so beware!

    « family stay »

    best service for the short notice stay; friendly service and maintenance crew. I had to make short notice stay when I had to stay with my family pet. Not only did this location accomodate me, they accomodated my additional family that came with the short notice.

    « great hotel »

    I drive a truck and have stayed here b4 and will stay here again. Always a good experience at this hotel. Large comfortable rooms. Very clean and everything works. Great place to stop for the night or in town for a few days. I would recommend this hotel to anyone reading this review.

    « Accommodating and wonderfull »

    We were having a Family Gathering at Dessert Willow Ranch and stayed at this Inn and Suites, in Bowie, TX. We couldn't have had a superior staff at an inn. So decent, wonderful, and accommodating. Our rooms were perfect and the bed was somewhat firm for me yet general we would do a reversal.

    « Stay at the Cullman, AL BW »

    Nice comfortable, clean, quiet room with closeby parking. Good breakfast provided, except eggs were cold. Didn't go in the pool but noticed other folks with kids were. It looked very nice and inviting. No surprises on check in/ out. We went by before dinner and checked in and turned on the a/c and turned on two air filters we took with us to get rid of any 'cleaning product' odors which bother us. That worked out nicely; no problem.

    « Dirty, Hot, and Smelly »

    Aside from the title of my review, the staff really didn't care and offered no real solution to the cleanliness or smell. They didn't even acknowledge our complaint about the heat. It was over 100 degrees this past weekend, and we could not get our room to cool down until around 2 in the morning both nights we were there.

    « Flawless »

    I go for augmented timeframes and sometimes compose audits when I go over lodgings that are incredible quality. This is my first visit here and the general involvement with the staff the cleanliness and the costs was exceptionally positive.

    « Pass this one up. »

    I've usually had good luck with lodging when traveling. Not this time. The shower literally had some goo dripping down the side of the wall. The scrum was so thick around the edge , it was disgusting. I took pictures to pass along to the corporate office when I get home.

    « Great environment and excellent staff »

    My wife and I stopped here for a room without a reservation. The staff were all very nice! Since they weren't busy they upgraded our room to a king hot tub room for the regular king price!!! Very clean! Great deal, great price! Nice pool! Very nice continental breakfast!

    « spotless »

    Great lodging near everything. The staff was benevolent. Our room was spotless and had sufficient housing. My little girl for got her watch in the room when we looked at. When we returned house keeping had it put aside for her. Will stay here once more.

    « Pleasant overnight stay »

    Nice clean room with all the usual facilities. TV, fridge, micro. Check in lady was nice and helpful. We like Cracker Barrel for eating so had to take car to cross road as its on the otherside of a busy dual carridgeway. However there were other restaurants walkable from the motel. There was a pool which we didn't use but looked clean and free wi-Fi. Breakfast was the usual selection of items which were fine for us. Overall a pleasant overnight stay.

    « Average »

    Overall this hotel was clean and convenient to the interstate. It was quiet. I would stay here again if traveling thru this area overnight. There are several restaurNts and places to eat within walking distance. Denny's restaurant was great and the people there were very friendly.

    « Amazing Stay »

    My better half and I stayed at the solace hotel on our trip from our Florida home. The staff was to a great degree welcoming and recommended that we store our two bikes in their ability domain. The hotel has an astounding restaurant which was an extra notwithstanding. We asked for fish courses and my loved one appreciated the carmelized green tomatoes hors d'oeuvre. We will be back!

    « Great value »

    We were just looking for a place to spend the night before we finished our trip home. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, but also wanted a place to rest comfortably. This place fit the bill. We enjoyed the friendly staff and clean, updated room. The room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. It was a great value compared to other hotels in the area.

    « Awesome stay »

    Great place to stay, breakfast was nice and convenient as well as the location. Clean atmosphere and I would stay here again. Maybe even next year if we go to the same car show that was located in downtown Cullmann.

    « Same old same old »

    Was just passing through for a place to rest my head. Only available room for my family of 4 was a king smoking with a couch.. Not a pull out either. The bed spread had a cigarette burn but everything in the room seemed to be clean. It was an average no thrill kinda place. The hotel staff was very pleasant to deal with though, super friendly.

    « Outstanding!! »

    This hotel is hands down the best my group of 15 and I have found! We were so pleased with our stay! The rooms were super clean ( we even arrived early which rushed them on clean up) but they were still on top of it! We will all definitely be back every year! We come to Cullman once a year for Rock the South and this hotel is extremely close and so nice compared to my last 3 years experiences!

    « Comfortable Stay »

    Not ever having stayed in Alabama before, I didn't know what to expect. We came here for a Pilgrimage to the Blessed Sacrament Shrine in Hanceville, but I wanted to stay somewhere with more dining options etc. I didn't know this was a MOTEL, and was a little surprised when we pulled up. I don't typically like motels as they are usually not as well cared for, loud, and frankly scary. Not this one. Our room was very quite and while the price was probably more than some of the other places, the cleaning staff does a good job, and rooms were up to date. The front desk was not very attentive, we had to wait for someone each time we went to the office. The breakfast buffet was very diverse with a lot of different options, not the greatest, but hey, it's free. Beds were comfortable as were the pillows. They also have a mini fridge and microwave in the room which was convenient. Negatives: dim lighting, and sundry items, bring your own soap, shampoo, and conditioner if you are fussy. They use the kind that are mounted inside the shower. No lotion was offered.

    3
    « Some update since last trip in 2013 »

    They have made some updates since my last trip in 2013 however I do not feel the value was there.Staff was nice and called soon after arrival to see if all was ok. I was not going to go into detail with her about what I thought about our room.Rooms need contractors that pay attention to detail. Our ceiling was sort of painted and had a faint animal smell. But it was just for One night. Breakfast was ok, out of some items.

    « Late night stop »

    The hotel staff was extremely professional and eager to make my stay as enjoyable as possible, especially when there was an issue with the reservation date. Erica went out of her way to reconcile the problem and get me the much needed rest I was looking for. The room was clean and comfortable. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel except maybe one thing. The housekeeping staff didn't honor the do not disturb sign on the door or the fact that I had a confirmed late check out.Other than thatI would recommend this hotel to anyone in need of a clean friendly place to rest up from a long trip.

    « Amazing View »

    We stayed here when we are returning for a wedding. This is one of the most delightful inns we have ever stayed amid our numerous voyages. It is so interesting, room is awesome, the bed is so agreeable, I would not like to receive in return! The bar is extremely sort of you; companions said the nourishment in the eatery was fantastic, we didn't eat there. The administration is fantastic. Confidence at the front work area was fabulous! I profoundly prescribe this inn and want to return!

    The room was clean and comfortable- I slept better than I usually do in hotels.I was surprised and concerned that the room doors were on the exterior of the building, but i had no problems and it was quiet.

    « Don't stay there »

    They gave us a room that looked as if someone was still using it. Dirty. Food in a warm refrigerator, lighter on the dresser, cigars in the dresser. I called down and they sent the girl up to clean. Wow, She never moved a thing. After she left I pulled back the sheets and there was finger nail clippings in the bed. I called down again to be moved to another room. Had to call the manager. Was told an order to not service the room was in place. Finally they gave us another room. What a hassle.

    « Good hotel for the money »

    We have stayed here many times and recently they have done some updates. New paint and some decor changes. They do have a handicap device for the pool, which I have never seen before. So if someone is wheelchair bound they can still get into the pool.

    3
    « Close to everything »

    They have recently updated the rooms with new decor. Room are clean and they have white comforters. The staff is super friendly. Shopping is close by and easy to get in and out of hotel. They have a BBQ grill in the property, which is a first for me at a hotel.

    4
    « Comfortable »

    Very friendly staff. In room for a half hour and the front desk called to ask how everything was and if anything else was needed. How often does that ever happen? Our room was very clean. We pull a trailer and they have a separate parking lot to accommodate this which was very nice. A grassy area to walk our dogs. A very pleasant stay and would stay again.

    « Stayed here for a concert »

    We stayed for a 2 day concert and were pleasantly surprised. The breakfast was good (although one day the waffle mix had soured and tasted terrible - other guests noticed it too). It was your standard expanded continental breakfast (waffles, eggs, bagels, toast, yogurt, etc). The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom felt clean. The room is updated with duvet type comforters and faux marble in the bathroom area. We enjoyed it so much that we've booked them again for this year's concert.

    3
    « Bad bad breakfast »

    We should have gone to Mcdonalds next door. Bananas were hid in storage. No muffins. Eggs looked terrible. Yogurt and coffee were good. All rooms faced outside. Something about room scared our dog. She normally loves to stay at motels.

    Clean, average outside entrance motel. Comfortable bedding, but noisy, due to direct exterior access. Room facilities are dated. Better accommodations are available in the area at the same, or lower prices.

    « Nice Find »

    Just happened to search Trip Advisor and saw that this hotel was well rated and well priced. We really liked it a lot. Quiet. Room was clean and updated. We had a jacuzzi pool in the room which was great after a day on the road. Would certainly come back.

    « GREAT PLACE TO STAY! »

    Great, friendly staff. Plenty places to eat in walking distance. Clean room with all the amenities. Would like to see a little more on the breakfast buffet - maybe sausage or bacon? Otherwise, you'll enjoy your stay. Thank you Best Western!!!

    « Very Old Hotel »

    During our ten day trip we stayed in three different Best Westerns. Newport TN was very good & Gainesville FL was superior. I expected the same in Cullman AL since it had a rating of 4 on Trip Advisor. The price was the best of the top four hotels rated--$90, but I was not happy. The hotel was old & run down. When I walked in the room I had was unsettled. The curtains & worn sofa were dark brown with a bright turquoise-painted wall. The grout around the bathtub & BR floor were brown-stained & dirty. There were dirty footprints on the bathroom floor & the room had an offensive odor. On the positive side the bed was comfortable, the TV remote had been cleaned & there were two table-top sockets, & we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast.

    « Hotel to consider anytime »

    Overall review was excellent I travel a lot, and would recommend This Hotel and its Staff, and team. I was greeted by the Staff checking in. The young lady at the desk was helpful on current location and what was available. She also addressed my questions and preferences to room and room location. I enjoy cordial people and services you sense others go out their way to make you feel welcome. So I appreciate the initial and ongoing impression I was given during this visit.

    « Always as it should be! »

    We stay here a least once a yr during the Octoberfest and occasionally when traveling to Florida and back. We always find things as they should be at this motel. Spotlessly clean and everything is as new in the room, The breakfast is good and the staff friendly.

    5
    « Last minute stay »

    We booked a last minute stay the night before my child's track meet at Cullman High School. Our room was clean, the entire staff was pleasant, and breakfast was good! A hotel staff member actually called out room 15 minutes after we checked in, just to check on us and see if there was anything else we needed. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    « Returning from vacation »

    Great place to stay for the night after a long road trip home from vacation...clean, friendly and great quality...will stay at this hotel again when in the area. We also had a service dog and they were very accommodating and no pet fee due to service animal

    « After 17 hours of driving »

    We were tired and needed a clean, safe, friendly place to stay. After stopping at another hotel that was rated higher, the inside rooms and business atmosphere didn't seem like what we needed. We found this across the street. The manager was very friendly and even called to check and see if everything was OK. The room was very clean and I even noticed that the fan in the bathroom was spotless, usually you see dust that has collected in the vent. The outside rooms contributed to a family atmosphere and I enjoyed seeing families and dogs. The room was very quiet. The Mexican restaurant across the street was great.

    « mid journey stay »

    On our journey to and from home, it is a midpoint stop and we have come to appreciate our stay here at this Inn. The staff are so friendly and the accommodations more than comfortable and clean.The morning breakfast was excellent and a very nice clean eating area to enjoy the meal.

    5
    « Summarizing my visit »

    The hotel has a great location right off Interstate 65. There are a variety of eating establishments in walking distances to the hotel. The rooms are easily accessible to your car parked right out your door. The staff was very accommodating and nice. The morning breakfast is served from 6-9 am and it offered a nice variety of options. The rooms were comfortable, clean and spacious.

    « Great Place for pets »

    Visiting family in Cullman and wanted my two small dogs with me. We all three loved it. Clean room, friendly staff and great location. Good value for families but wish they would lengthen breakfast cut off to 10:00 am instead of 9:00 am for us tired travelers who like to sleep in.

    « Review of Best Western Fairwinds Inn »

    The desk clerk was very nice in relocating us to a lower floor since I have problems with the stairs and there was no elevator. That is one of the reasons I do not like booking through an agency, I prefer to book directly with a hotel so I can get answers to some of the questions I have but many times when you go to a site you get an agency number. I also prefer motels that do not open directly to the outside and this hotel opens to the outside.

    « Comfortable night stay with nice breakfast »

    A warm, friendly desk attendant welcomed us to this clean, inviting hotel after a very long work day. Our room was spacious and offered 2 very comfortable queen beds, each with 4 fluffy pillows. The internet was quick and best of all ~ free with the room. A warm shower with a rain head made a relaxing end to the day. A full breakfast featuring warm biscuits with sausage gravy, eggs, cereal, waffles, fruit, juice, pastries, and coffee got our next day off to a good start. A great reward to travel.

    « Outdated »

    This hotel is extremely outdated. Beds were comfortable and clean but everything else was worn badly and the floors were dirty. The staff was friendly enough but seemed to have difficulty understanding. Right off the exit, easy to find and many near by business. There were also other hotels nearby which is what I would suggest you use.

    « Nice and clean »

    We got here very late, about 11:30 pm. Check in was super easy. Our room was clean and comfy. Our family was pleased. Loved that a gas station and the waffle house were within walking distance. All in all not the best place I've stayed but when we go back to Cullman we will stay here again.

    « Great Place For Stop Over! »

    Exited off I-65 after a long day of driving north from Florida. Best Western hotels are often a first choice. This one did not disappoint us. Building is older, but the interior rooms are nicely updated, and clean. Bed was comfortable.

    « Strongly recommend!!! »

    Wooow! I've never been to a hotel that is as nice as this. This is a home away from home hotel. Their front desk staffs are very helpful and are doing a very good job, they ansewrs to all the question i asked them. Talking about the environment, the environment is so neat with a very nice car park. The room was very accommodating with a very big bathroom. I enjoyed what is called a professional services from them with a very affordable price. I will recommend then to friends and Family.

    « Emergency Stay »

    All the staff were extremely nice. The front desk allowed us to stay on a day to day basis. We had an emergency and had to hospitalize my brother in law. Ending up staying 5 nights instead of one. While all the others were at the hospital I, a female, was alone at the hotel and never was in fear. No one loitering around and very quiet. Breakfast was fresh each day which was important to us before all headed to the hospital. Good location with gas and many restaurants within close proximity. Have nothing but positive things to say.

    « Newly remodeled »

    We have a Florida vacation home and travel I-65 several times a year. This was our second stay at Fairwinds. Last year it was in need of an update and just okay. The update is complete and they did a great job. Everything inside our room was new from the beds to the furnace/air. I really liked the furnace/air you can set the temperature you want just like in your own home. No waking up either freezing or over heated hours after you went to sleep. Trailer parking is available in a lot right before you reach the hotel. There are lots of variety for dining very close to the hotel.

    « Return Customer »

    They are always updating and always willing to help with anything we need. Best of all, they take our doggie. This place is always filled, so make a reservation. The price is reasonable, but I wouldn't call it a bargain. We stay here several times a year.

    « Would definitely stay here again! »

    Stopped here on our way home from vacation. Room was clean & well equipped. After we got into the room, Kristy, the person on duty, phoned to ask if everything was alright with the room. We were impressed with her follow up. We all slept like babies in the nice, comfy, dark & quiet room. Would give this 5 stars if it had a bar and restaurant! The breakfast offerings were impressive!

    « restful »

    Perfect hotel to get a good night rest and an excellent breakfast to continue in one'a journey. Location is perfect from the main interstate 65. A good stay to venture from here to a lot of local attractions. The Ave Maria Grotto is only miles from here, and a must visit.

    5
    « Excellent place to stay. »

    As Best Westerns go, this one provided all the amenities that I needed as well as clean rooms and linens. I did not feel like this was some posh place that I would be worried about messing up. I was very comfortable with the accommodations.

    « Nice for the price »

    Great location, right off the interstate. The room had a fresh smell, front desk person was very nice. Breakfast was better than we expected. Good selection. There was a person there who kept everything clean and the items stocked. For the price this is one of the better hotels that we've stayed at.

    « Could have been better »

    Check in and out was the best experience of the stay. The service was very good. The bed and pillows were fairly comfortable. The carpet looked a bit soiled and the bathroom shower grout could have been cleaner; clock did not work; the non-smoking room smelled like smoke. Overall, I did not think it was worth the price paid, but it was comfortable enough for a short stay.

    « A perfectly fine roadside option »

    This is an exterior-corridor property located just east off Exit 310 on I-65 about halfway between Huntsville and Birmingham. The rooms are reasonably up-to-date and contain all the usual mid-level amenities you would expect. No fitness center or pool and a very small breakfast room. Our room had some problems such as non-functioning lamps and a slow draining sink but other than that the place was fine. This is not a great place but there is nothing about it that should make you shy away from spending a night here.

    « Decent hotel for a stopover.. but GREAT service! »

    This was an older hotel, with exterior entrances to the rooms. But it was clean, and the people working at the front desk were very nice. The breakfast wasn't much but we were able to make a waffle for our little one, which was nice. I would stay again if we needed to.

    When I research a hotel/motel the factors that are considered are; Location, rate structure, cleanliness ,and quiet. Found this Best Western provides the best balance of those priorities. It is located very close to Interstate 65 exit 310 and there are several gas stations and restaurants including my personal favorite, Cracker Barrel.

    Our reserved 2 rooms were not held even though we called to say we would be arriving late. When we arrived there was only 1 room and we were told the door was jammed and we would have to crawl through the window to get in. We made reservations far in advance because we knew rooms would be booked on this particular weekend. We had to drive on and arrived home at 3:00am. This review will probably not appear on their site, but we would not recommend this or any other Best Western.

    « Nice stop on the road »

    Convenient to Interstate 65. The staff was very good, the front desk man PJ in particular. Breakfast was good and internet service strong. Room was plain but clean and comfortable. Only complaint is that the bath room fan was very loud.

    Friendly, Clean, Price is right. We arrived Late and left early. Ate in the hotel. Breakfast food was OK, Fresh fruit and sweets are great. Eggs, and meats are eatable at best. Nothing more to say. We travel a lot and we like Best Western the best.

    « Recommend this comfy hotel - great value »

    Stayed here on way to our recent trip to the Florida Panhandle, due to positive TripAdvisor reviews. Was very pleased with everything - cleanliness, comfort, service - a great value. So pleased in fact, we reserved rooms for us and our separately-roomed grown children/grandchildren for the return trip home. Don't hesitate to stay here - great value, no complaints. Especially good for those travelling with their 4-legged friends - pet friendly hotel that doesn't gouge you for bringing your dogs. They were making room updates and painting exterior while we were there. Will return again!

    I will never stay at this hotel again. Very dirty, mold in the room, running toilet and nats everywhere. BAD, VERY BAD. Dirty carpet smell was terrible. Would not recommend to stay at the Cullman Al best western. Very dissatisfied.

    « Everything good except »

    This place was a very reasonable price and had a fridge , microwave, coffee maker( see my review on Disney arts and animation ). Bathroom was very nice with good water pressure and separate from sink and mirror. Everything looked and smelled clean.Only complaints are the light above the sink was very dim making shaving difficult. The one big complaint is the fact that free breakfast is from 6-9 am.All hotels should listen. When we travel , we do not want to get up early and eat before 9 am. We are sleeping in.Dont most people on vacation??? Have breakfast as least till 10:30 like McDonald's use too.Dont know how breakfast was here because we didn't get up till 8:30 this morning after a long day if driving from Daytona beach yesterday!!!!!!

    This is a great stop over, a bit hard to get out on the main road when leaving but good place to spend the night. Their truck/trailer parking is difficult for those with a mobility issue to access because it has no steps or ramp for foot entry. Breakfast consisted of only egg patties, biscuits and gravy other tha the pastries. Rooms are clean and TV is okay.

    Don't stay at the Best Western Hotel in Cullman Alabama, worst breakfast bar I have ever seen, rundown building needs many updates, tv remotes they say are "green for the environment" didn't work. Outside doors of the rooms looked like kids painted them with their fingers.

    Great place to relax and enjoy a visit with family. with many area sites to visit, this is the most central place and surrounding conveniences make it idea. Felt safe and secure which is a plus in today's world.

    « Good basic overnight spot »

    This is an older hotel with some cosmetic issues. It was the least expensive (acceptable) available in the area when I made plans. We were there for a cross country meet held about twenty miles away and only required a place to sleep for the night. It was clean and comfortable, but just a bit old. I was satisfied with the accommodations for the price.

    The review for the room was very good. I would rate it average. The room smelled of dog. The bathroom door was hard to close due the top hinge on the door was not properly atttached. I was just not impressed with the room.
