    « Always A Great Experience »

    The owner/operator of this hotel, Mr. Rony Naik is the reason that we visit this hotel annually on our way to Florida. Mr. Naik is the friendliest, most caring and pleasant individual that we have ever encountered at any hotel. He visits each table at breakfast with a smile and sincere care. Mr. Naik's dedication to the customer is outstanding. All hotels could learn from his genuine passion for putting the customer first!

    « Our 3rd visit...need I say more? Not really, but I will! »

    Our 3rd stay in 3 years as a stop over on the way to Florida. On M-T-W-T from 5pm to 7pm CST they have a Managers Reception with snacks, beer, wine and mixed cocktails. It really tops off my 7+ hour drive to relax with a cold one before retiring to the room. The nice thing is you aren't driving anywhere so you don't have to stop at one...and it's free. Do tip the bar attendant. The rooms are clean and everything smells so fresh. Breakfast is available from 0600 to 0900.The GM Rony Naik is a wonderful host. He greats everyone at the reception and at breakfast. I'll be back in February. See you then Rony!

    « Was here for my niece's graduation from Paul Mitchell »

    I wanted to put this up right away but had health problems. But I didn't forget.... I spend a lot of time in hotels and Resorts. My number #1 is cleanliness of a property especially my sleeping quarters. I am happy to say this hotel is very well maintained. My room was perfect. The location is convenient: It was nice that eateries were within walking distance. Staff was great. Special Thanks to Dionca (Dee ?sp) . Some people just have that extra special something that makes them stand out. Hotels need more people like her. She has that extra something that gives you a feeling of being at home. I felt that way and I assume others did because she greeted and engaged with everyone in the same way. As someone that spends a lot of time traveling. It's a breath of fresh air when you find someone like her in an establishment. My overall experience was GREAT! I would definitely stay here again.

    « Great value »

    I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years and was astonished at the improvements that have been made in a year including upgrading of the room decor and exterior. All of the staff were cheerful and helpful plus the General Manager / Franchise owner came around at breakfast to speak to each guest and inquire about their stay. They have a very good free breakfast which included bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy on the hot bar. You also can make waffles. Cereal, toast (raisin & french), muffins, yogurt, fruit, coffee and various juices are also available. In the afternoon there is a "Manager's happy hour" with snacks and 2 free drinks (beer, wine). Once again, I had a very positive experience at this hotel.

    « Great night stay along the road »

    Great 1 night stay along the road. Wanted to stay just south of Birmingham, AL so not to be stuck in any rush hour traffic in the morning. Hotel was right along the highway, easy to find, great rate for the room. Just great. They even allowed us to sneak in to get a cup of coffee to go before 6am so we could get on the road. Friendly staff.

    « Business trip »

    Convenient, friendly, clean. The manager and front desk people were outstanding. I highly compliment them. I left an item in the room and they were so accommodating to hold it for me. (Only one unusual thing happened. The TV came on once late at night and again the next morning. The remote in the room next to mine may have triggered it. At least that is the only thing I can think of.)

    The afternoon cocktail hour was a pleasant surprise .The rooms were extremely clean. Excellent location with plenty of nice restaurants in walking distance.. Breakfast was also well prepared and separated from main lobby area which was nice

    « Excellent room and staff, plus good value »

    Just a one night flying visit, but the room more than lived up to expectations. Internet (free!) log in was easy and quick. I slept well, undisturbed by exterior noise, whether from outside or inside the hotel. Did not have the included breakfast, as I had eaten too well the night before, so no comments about that experience. All the staff I dealt with were courteous, helpful and efficient.

    « Clean, comfortable and well-maintained hotel »

    My wife and I chose this hotel for a one night stay when passing through Birmingham, Alabama. I am leery of Best Western hotels because I have found them to vary from places I would not want to spend one night to places like this one where I would be happy to stay for an extended period. The hotel was very clean and well-maintained, staff was very friendly and competent. Reservations, check-in and check-out all worked perfectly=.

    « Next door is better! »

    We stayed here on our way to Destin. Hotel was clean and very convenient to I-65. I like having a small, sort of separate, sitting area to watch tv and work on the computer. The bed was a little hard. Two lights did not work, need new bulbs. The so called breakfast was horrible. We got downstairs for breakfast at 8:00 am. There was hardly anything to eat. What they did have was not good. I never saw anyone come to replenish the food the whole time we were there having orange juice and cold bacon and gravy that had a weird taste. There were 3 biscuits, 4-5 pieces of cold bacon and some eggs. No bread for toast, no muffins, no pastries, no sausage, nothing. A few pieces of fruit that was not edible, tasted spoiled. This was out first stay and our last. Sorry Best Western but Drury Inn next door beats you by a mile!

    « Great Location in Birmingham »

    Hotel was in a very nice location and close to various amenities in the area. The staff was welcoming and professional. I enjoyed my stay and the service of the hotel staff. You can't go wrong staying at this Best Western Plus location.

    « Great Southern Hospitality »

    This hotel was awesome from the time we walked into the lobby. We had originally booked another hotel down the street and after staying one night we left and found this hotel. What a pleasant surprise. The hotel manager and staff were so friendly and helpful not to mention how clean and big the rooms are. They also serve a complete warm breakfast which is included! We are definitely going back.

    « Won't stay there again big mistake »

    The worst best western we ever stayed at and the manager was not much help either please do not stay at this hotel. the staff is rude especially the night shift the breakfast was good but again the staff is rude and you talk to the manager her does not do anything but says he's sorry.

    « King bed Suite »

    The hotel and staff was great. The breakfast assortment was exceptional. We were even offered water for the road at check-in and check-out. The only thing that could be better was a swivel mount on the TV for better viewing.

    « Great break in our trip! »

    We stopped at this hotel on our way from Indianapolis to Gulf Shores for one night. I really enjoyed the layout of the rooms and how customer-service oriented it was. The free breakfast had many options and I was thrilled to find French toast! Everything was very modern, and I was comfortable staying there with my husband and 2-year old. I will keep this place in mind for any future visits to the gulf!

    « Felt like home but better »

    I would recommend this hotel hands down over any other around. Not only was it extremely clean in both our rooms but it was also very affordable. All of the staff are obviously hard working and care about the hotel. They were very helpful and friendly including the manager, Rony whom we met first at the counter. . I had asked on line for feather pillows and they were in the room when I arrived. The manager reception which is Monday through Thursday, is very nice with decent food (chicken wings and salsa and chips, nice cheese and crackers, etc., and beer and wine and soft drinks. Its nice too that there are not too many people either. And the attendant Angela was so very nice and helpful!! The breakfast is also delicious with some cheese grits that are awesome and they have fresh fruit too. They seemed to always have bacon and sausage yum!. The food was very nicely laid out. You can walk across the street to several restaurants including Landry's seafood (also recommend) and Arbys. Didn't get to swim in the pool but it looked very nice and so does the work out room. It had everything you would need. I felt very safe staying there for the four nights we stayed. I liked how close the hotel was to the interstate and every where we needed to go as it is so centrally located. Rony keeps his hotel in tip top shape and runs it impeccably. No wonder everyone keeps coming back. See you next time Rony!

    « A great hotel with unbelievable helpful staff. »

    The staff was amazing. The maintenance man emptied my trunk through the backseat and used the emergency trunk release, when my trunk wouldn't open. The manager actually came around to each table during his daily reception with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails and talked to everyone. Wonderful people and a wonderful place.

    5
    « We'll come back! »

    At first the long hallway was daunting, but then I realized it was no further to our room than other motels we have stayed in. The straight hallway makes it seem longer than it is. The hot breakfast is good. Good way to start your day. The general manager is Rony Naik. Best Western should clone him for their other motels. He and his staff are great. Even the maids are polite and customer service oriented. The rooms are large, well lit and very quiet. My wife especially appreciated the reading lamps on the head of the bed. Highly recommended, even with the long hallways!

    Every summer we have a conference in Birmingham, and we always stay at this location. Consistently comfortable and clean rooms along with great service and a very good breakfast. The evening food/drink options are nice as well.

    « Grateful We Called This Home for 2 weeks »

    The Best Western Plus Carlton Suites manage gave his customers umbrellas as appreciation for his guests ...I have never seen a manager greet his guests every morning with a warm welcome and a smile as a matter of fact every employee that works here goes out and beyond for their customers. We are going on our second week of being here and every morning is a joy coming down for breakfast...Also, on Mon- Thur they have a manages appreciation for the guests from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm with chicken, meatballs, different kinds of cheeses and many snacks ..What other hotel you know of that does this? The rooms are large and modern... I especially love the bedroom and the whirlpool tub? at Best Western Plus Carlton Suites.

    « Clean and nice but has staff issues »

    Worst service I have ever experienced. Came back into room at 11:30 pm exhausted and ready to sleep and had no bedding on beds! Was given sheets and had to make my own bed. Then the following day the same thing happened again! Total miscommunication between staff. On the other hand, breakfast was great.

    « They put the "best" in Best Western »

    This property is clean, secure and well maintained. The location is convienent to I-65, shopping, eating, golfing, hospitals and several major universities. The staff is friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure a happy stay.

    « What a Great Deal! »

    We recently stayed at the Best Western Carlton Suites near Birmingham, Alabama and we are very glad that we did! I located the property using Trip Advisor and a third-party booking offered us a terrific price ... but, we hesitated because we weren't sure how adding additional days, or leaving early, would be handled should the case arise. So, I telephoned the inn directly and found them very easy to work with. They honored the rate, assured us we could check out early if needed, or extend our stay if needed at the same rate. The hotel was super clean and modern. Lots of electrical outlets in the room. The "suite" concept is formed by using the bathroom to kind of divide the hotel room space into two areas, one for sleeping and the other for business and mini-kitchen. There's a sink, fridge, and microwave. About the only down side is that when one member of the party rises early to work, there's not a good way to turn on a light that doesn't illuminate the sleeping area, as well. Besides the complimentary full hot breakfast we expected from the reservation, when we arrived we were also delighted to find there's a complimentary manager's reception each Monday to Thursday evening with hors d'oeuvres and beverages. What a deal! We liked the inn so much, we'll stay there again -- in fact, on leaving we made reservations for our next trip through the area three weeks hence.

    « Confusing Location »

    Picked this location for the purpose to eat at Landry's Seafood which was across the street. That was convenient but it was hard to find. Glad there was still a little daylight left. As soon as we arrive, the manager and a helper were exchanging out the tv remotes in every room. We just wanted to unload our things and go to dinner. Told them to do it the next morning after we left because we weren't going to use the tv. That was a first in all my stays anywhere. Not good planning on their part. The bed slept ok and many choices for breakfast.

    « Great find »

    We were on a 2 week road drive driving from up north to down south. We decided to stay here last min. There were 4 of us. We choose the pull out couch bed and King size bed. Our room was clean and roomy, bathroom decent size, we had a kitchenette room. Staff offered great southern hospitality. Managers were active and greeted guest breakfast asking if everything was ok during our stay. The FREE breakfast was GOOD, they offered a nice variety. Our most favorite part was the managers appreciation hour (for adults) offering free Alcoholic drinks and snacks. the drinks were a pleasurable size and they were not watered down....yes I said FREE DRINKS! (Mature atmosphere, no drunks, very professional) They offer free wifi and the TV Screens are up to date and big! The have a nice clean pool, although we did not swim only viewed it. We have no complaints at all!!! Not far from 16th st. Ebenezer Baptist Church (remembering "4 little girls") and the civil right memorial and museum.

    « Very Good »

    My stay was perfect in every way, Clean rooms comfortable beds nice bathroom. would recommend this hotel while in Birmingham, Alabama. This is the nicest hotel and the prices are very reasonable. My room was on the third floor and it was very quite.

    « Decent value »

    Stayed in a king suite. I found it much smaller than most King suites I've frequented, but the room was very clean. The tv was halfway between the two rooms, so the two rooms were practically just one with a three foot dividing wall at the head side of the bed. Free breakfast was very good. I expected a somewhat larger room size for the price ($129 that night), but overall still a decent value including breakfast. Front desk staff was very courteous.

    « Better service than Disney! »

    Truly, these folks go above and beyond anything I have ever seen, and I travel a lot!! From the owner constantly checking up to make sure you are totally happy, to the great rooms (SPACIOUS), this place shocked me for the price! My military unit was there, and we were practicing some music in the conference room. While we were in there, one of the ladies came in with a huge and fresh plate of cookies! The manager found out we couldn't be at the normal manager's reception the next day so he ordered out for a bunch of pizza to feed us lunch!!! Truly fantastic service, and I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else if I ever go back through Birmingham. The service almost seems like an era gone by, where the customer is a privilege to the company, not an inconvenience. Thank you for a fantastic stay!

    « 4th of July weekend »

    Clean rooms and lobby. Nice breakfast. Loved having more room than a typical hotel room. A place to sit other than the bed. Ideal location to everything we wanted to do and see in Birmingham. Great for our small family of 3. We had the king and our daughter had the pull out sofa.

    5
    « Top notch service »

    We had a group of 41 rooms for 9 nights and we were blown away with the level of service the staff provided throughout our entire stay. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to give us 5-star service. They even treated our group to a pizza lunch! The rooms are super clean and housekeeping went above and beyond to keep our rooms comfortable. The pool area is really nice and the water is kept very warm. The fitness room is bigger than most hotel fitness rooms. I absolutely recommend this hotel. We were here for business, but it is a great place for families, as well.

    « good clean hotel »

    We stayed here on our way to panama city beach. The first hotel that I have stayed in that gave you a bottle of water at check-in. Rooms were clean and quiet. Breakfast was very good. it was busy but they did their best to keep everything stocked.

    « 3-Night Stay in King Whirlpool Suite »

    We stayed here three nights for a business trip in the King Whirlpool Suite. The staff were friendly and the room was spacious and clean. We had an issue with the checkout time and the manager was very gracious in working out a compromise with me. There was also a billing error, but the management corrected it promptly and with a smile. Breakfast had a generous selection each day. We visited the Managers Reception twice and the hostess was friendly and made surprisingly good cocktails. The only complaint I have was the pool area. My plan was to read, sun, and swim for three days while my boyfriend was at his conference during the day. The indoor pool was much smaller and more rundown than it seemed in the picture. Because the pool is surrounded in a greenhouse type enclosure, the water was so warm it felt like bath water. The atmosphere in the enclosure was also stifling. There are several ceiling fans that I found a switch and turned on, and there is an exhaust system, but they did little to cool the air. The room is surrounded on all sides by sliding glass doors, but only two were operational and had screens. After opening the two doors, the temperature improved slightly. If the ownership fixed this problem the area would be much more usable. The pool area did have a nice outdoor patio with two small tables and chairs. I was able to move one of the reclining lounges outside to sun each day and then I brought it back inside. The second day I was there I had the pool to myself. No one saw that I opened the doors so they remained open all night and the temperature was more bearable the second day. It still wasn't pleasant, but it was bearable. Overall it was a fairly nice hotel for the price. If they fixed the pool issues it would be a four star review.

    « Will Stay Here Again »

    Great breakfast!! They have a breakfast concierge that makes sure everything is well stocked and clean. Crispy bacon... yum! Nice suites. No surprises. Great location. Will definitely stay here again on our annual trip to Destin.

    « Personal service »

    We used this hotel for a one night stay in Birmingham. The staff is so friendly and professional. The owner greeted us at check-in, the evening happy hour, and again at breakfast. The staff made sure everything was to our satisfaction. The hotel looked newly renovated, I will strongly suggest this hotel to everybody.

    « No Worries »

    I'm at the platinum level in the BW program (It has no significant perks but you're supposed to feel "special". Whatever.) but I never pull the "Do you know who I am?" line when I have an issue. That said, at this place one wouldn't need to. The staff, including manager, were welcoming at check in and recognized and greeted me later as I passed through the lobby. One quirky but amusing moment occurred after checking in when I thanked the woman behind the desk but said I didn't know how to thank her by name. She looked at me oddly when I bent my head over and tried to read her name tag. Turns out she had her name tag on upside down. We all got a brief chuckle out of that. Everything with the room was just fine. It would be nice to find a copy of the bill under the door instead of going to the front desk to get it. The breakfast room is a bit small for the potential number of guests but we had to wait less than 5 minutes at 8AM for a table for two. Something prevalent on this visit prompted a rhetorical question: Why do some guests continue to sit there long after they have finished eating, thereby keeping others waiting, and no staff asks politely if they can make room for others? Save that behavior for Starbucks where you can buy over priced-but not very good drinks at high prices- and so be entitled to park yourself in one spot until you get bed sores on your butt.

    « Customers are an inconvenience »

    The customer service to this particular property of Best Western did not do the Best Western name any justice. From the time I checked in, to the day I checked out, the word that came to me was, "inconvenience". The staff at the front desk (regardless of the time of day) seem to have not read the 'customer service" manual. It was always about how they were feeling that day, evening, or whatever the time of day was and what they were going through in life. The front desk does not go the extra mile, or any for that matter and the manager makes excuses for them instead of ensuring that the customer has a great experience. However, the room service was amazing, Marisol was the absolute best that I have experience for the 8 days that I was there. The next time I am in the area, I will visit the Drury Inn next door.

    « Baseball Trip »

    This 'was one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The GM Rony Naik was very outgoing and nice and was always around the hotel making sure you were ok. The ladies at the desk were friendly and helpful. The food was the greatest and a big hand to the lady in the kitchen.

    « Friendly staff »

    We booked our room on the wrong night at another hotel. This hotel opened their doors to us to let us stay. Great pool. Breakfast was great. There are many restaurants and gas stations in the area. This is just off of the highway, which is nice when traveling.

    « Met Our Needs »

    We stayed at this hotel on our way back to New Orleans from Pigeon Forge, TN. The hotel is very clean. The only problem I had is their website says that they have roll a way beds and they don't. We are a family of five, three teens, and just could not sleep in just two beds. I went to Walmart, which was just down the street, and got an air mattress which was much cheaper then getting another room.

    « Rest for the weary traveler »

    Called from the room looking for a place to stay. Check in staff gave good directions. Check in staff extra friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast had a nice selection of good hot food. Not just danish. Check out staff extra friendly. Would stay here again.

    « Nice stay »

    Stayed here on our way to the zoo. It was a nice trip. Customer service was great. King suite was spacious and comfortable. Traditional decor even though most hotels are going more modern. Everything was well maintained and in good condition. Rooms have been updated and had ample plugs. I like hotels that have some character and are not cookie cutter. Management at this hotel is top notch. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Hotel Looks Good, but Quality of bedding poor »

    Hotel building very dated. They have updated the bedding and furniture in rooms; however, the sheets were scratchy. The coffee was like water. The toilets flush like your on an airplane; scared me to death. The bathroom fans are loud and noisy. The towels were fine, the hotel was clean. The paint color of the bedrooms are putrid orange. The hotel lobby furniture and curtains look like they came from an 1800's horror film.

    « Will never stay here again »

    My family stayed here last night in room 233, may 20th, and I don't know where to begin... As soon as we walked in, the older lady at the counter was very rude. We got to our room and seen it was not like the pictures at all. The beds were very uncomfortable, the pull out couch was very lumpy, and we could feel the springs poking through the top, also the sheet on the pullout couch had holes all in it. We asked for a few extra pillows so I could make a pallet on the floor for my 2 yr old so he wouldn't have to sleep on the pullout couch and risk getting stabbed by the springs, and the lady at the front desk was rude again. After fighting with her, we finally got ONE extra pillow. I ended up sleeping on the pullout couch with my son, but we were unable to sleep at all. Also, there were dead roaches in the fridge. The room was either really hot or really cold. The breakfast was absolutely horrible. If the room wasn't a non refundable room, we would have left the minute we walked in. I don't know how this hotel has the ratings that it does, I just hope no one else gets fooled the way we did.

    This hotel is extremely clean and the front desk people are great. The location is easy to get to / right next to the highway I 65 North. Quiet/ spacious room/ We ate at O'Charleys the grilled asparagus was the best I have ever had. Service a little slow but they were very nice.

    « One night stay just fine »

    There were five in our family that stayed for the night. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. I thought we were getting 2 king beds, but they weren't. It's ok, though. I plan on staying here next year when we come through to pick up our daughter from college. There was a pull out couch that was very sunken in. There's no way anyone would be able to sleep on it pulled out. But since our youngest is only 10 years old, he did fine just sleeping on the couch. :) The breakfast in the morning was a good selection too.

    « Wish we could have stayed longer! »

    We stayed here just one night on our way home to Ohio from New Orleans. The room was large with a lounge area, complete with sofa, TV, desk, frig, microwave; then a separate area with two beds and another TV. Nice indoor pool. Lovely breakfast area. Very friendly staff. The manager (owner?) came into the breakfast area and greeted everyone, including his staff. Would certainly come back if we are ever in this area.

    « Disappointed »

    I have never been disappointed with a choice of hotel when using trip advisor but i have no idea how this is ranked so well. We just left and here is a quick run down: old and horrible sofa sleeper, pic of the room looks nothing like what we stayed in...maybe there are some renovated rooms? Stained bedding and mattress pads, including what looked like blood stains on the edge of the bed's mattress pads though thankfully there were no other signs of bed bugs, odor of urine coming from our ac/heat unit whenever it was running. Must have just been a bad day for this place and bad luck for us because we appear to be in the minority with this review (i have never posted a negative review but feel like if there are other large families like ours who are looking for last minute respite stops, maybe Mom/Dad would want to see this review). Alerted management to the mattress pad nastiness but we checked in at 12:30 am so unfortunately, we didnt feel like we had much choice in moving to either a new room or a new hotel with 3 sleepy kids. Hope you all have better luck!

    « Wonderful stay! »

    My family and I reserved 3 rooms for the Talledega race weekend. We had reserved online in January two king size rooms and one double room. Upon arrival, the system had shown up as our double room being a king. When I told the desk employee this was incorrect, I pulled up my booking confirmation and she immediately blocked off the last double room so no one could book it. This is what I call service! They had cookies and water available to guests at the desk as well. The staff the entire weekend was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. The hotel had a hot breakfast that was awesome!! I would definitely stay there again!!!

    « Delightful and welcoming hotel »

    We arrived about 5:30 p.m., after a full day of driving/sight-seeing. As we signed in, we were told that happy hour was underway in the breakfast room. What a way to start your stay! They offered munchies (corn chips & salsa, chicken nuggets, etc.) along with a drink. We hastily stowed our gear and then gratefully relaxed before heading out to dinner. This very nice hotel is located in a sort of motel village outside of Birmingham. There are several eateries right in the village, including a Landry's Seafood house directly across from the Best Western. We elected to drive 2 exits down on the freeway to a sizable mall for dinner and some shopping. The room was quite large and L-shaped, something new to us. The desk with free wifi is in a corner so that one need not disturb a sleeping companion. There is a couch which can apparently be made up for additional sleeping quarters. There is a counter unit with small fridge, microwave, so that light repasts can be prepared. Everything was very clean and the towels were appropriately thick. The usual toiletries were provided. The rooms were quiet. Access from the parking lot was simple, once we were directed to the proper area. There is an indoor pool. Breakfast provided the usual fare, with ample space for various sized parties. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. As we were leaving, I realized that I needed to take a pill. As the desk clerk printed out my receipt, I told him I'd need to return to the breakfast room to get a sip of water for my pill. Without missing a step, he pulled up a bottle of water and handed it to me. That's quick service! We enjoyed this hotel very much and would gladly return.

    Rooms are good size with ample room to setup Multi-monitor workstation. Internet access/speed is priority #1 for me and this location has wired internet which is critical for me. The internet access was superb with no issue the entire time I was there. Breakfast was pretty good and they even offer a free happy hour, which is very rare.

    This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Not up to best western standards. The building is so old and gross. Signs of bugs everywhere. Place is falling apart. So disgusting. We chose this hotel because of the great tripadvisor reviews. It was a mistake. Please be warned. This is not worth 100 dollars. It is more in line with a fifty dollar hotel.

    Everything was good including the hot tub in the room. Just not as classy as Marriott. Room clean, but decor was well out of date. The AC/Heat unit was an old wall unit that I have not seen in years. Kept bedroom cool, but loud and could not keep guest room cool. Yes I would stay again sometime, but if Marriott was available with hot tub too, I would definiately stay there before here. from a scale of 1 aweful to 10 perfect I would rate it around a 6-7.

    « Stay away, you can find better, gruby, outdated and uncomfortable »

    Having stayed at other best westerns in the U.S we thought we were finding a goldmine booking here, how wrong we were. Initial look in reception was ok, then following the mile long walk down an outdated hall to the elevators we arrived in our room. We were travelling as a party of three and when we got to the room we had one double bed. After a call to reception we were told there's a sofa bed and there are blankets in the drawer "make the bed yourself, we don't make up sofa beds, it's not part of our service". After a long day of travelling this was the last thing we needed but made the bed up anyway. As it was pulled out we found blood and urine stains on the mattress (thankfully there was a mattress protector on top of this which seemed clean enough). Also we had no idea how long those blankets had been in the drawer unused. They definitely weren't fresh. With every move made on the bed there was springs and bars sticking up everywhere, these sofa beds are way past their cell by date! Not a wink of sleep all night and now putting muscle relief gel on my back as a result. The room was also very grubby, we felt dirty throughout the stay and I for one was not risking walking around the room without shoes on at any time day or night. Breakfast was manic, a small little room not big enough to swing a cat with everyone crowded in. Staff were in no way over friendly. Also to note this hotel allows pets so we were met by a number of dogs (which I don't mind given I'm a dog lover) but I do mind sleeping in beds where I don't know if animals have been especially given the low level of cleanliness we experienced.

    « Traveling mom with 2 toddlers - Great stay »

    I was extremely impressed with the entire stay at the Best Western PLUS Carlton Suites, Birmingham. As a single mom with two toddlers, making a trip from NC to TX, it was a good midway stop for us. We arrived to a nice welcoming and an introduction to a "Happy Hour" snack (wings, chips, dips and juices for us), that had been a very pleasant surprise. The three of us had alone time at the pool, which was the temperature of a luke warm bath, it was extra relaxing after a long drive. After a good nights sleep we enjoyed an AMAZING breakfast. We were all impressed with the variety and taste of everything. My boys had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, "little cutie" oranges, and milk while I had a yogurt, cut up melons, sausage, and cranberry juice. If my boys were not such messy eaters we would have loved to have the biscuits and gravy or the waffles that we seen other people going back and getting seconds of. It was also nice to be greeted with a "good morning" from a man that may have been the owner or manager. He was also very friendly as was the other staff. The only issue I had found were some of the sharp edged tables in the hotel room. My guys are a bit too rough from low tables and night stands with sharp corners. But overall, it was ideal in every other way.

    « An Excellent Choice! »

    This was my first stay at this hotel. It was an excellent choice! When we first arrived, we were welcomed warmly, and offered coffee or a bottle of water. The room was clean and modern. Lots of electrical plug ins for charging electronics. The wifi was good (no ethernet cable, wifi only) and the in-room fridge kept my juice nice & cold. The tv got more channels than anyone needs ;-) but I was impressed that the remote was in its own little "freshness bag." They clean the remotes between guests? Nice! Even the elevator was spotless. Rony Naik, the GM, was very accommodating and helpful. Some GMs hide in their office and you never see them - not Rony. He was visible and made sure the morning rush through the lobby/dining area moved smoothly. Hundreds of the best vocalists in Alabama descended upon Birmingham to sing at Samford University at the All-State Choral Festival. We stayed here because it's not far from Samford, but morning rush hour traffic in Birmingham is a beast, so it was nice to have breakfast (and coffee!!!!) ready & waiting for us in the morning so we could get out the door! Loved the breakfast buffet - you MUST have their biscuits. With jelly, with gravy, just plain, doesn't matter. They are the BEST! If you have one, you WILL go back for seconds. You have been warned! ;-) I'm happy to recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Birmingham. I would definitely stay here again. They understand hospitality. Thank you, Rony, for a great experience.

    « If you like roaches... Sure »

    You ever see a place where you feel would be GREAT because of the reviews? Me too. I stayed at this location over Valentine weekend. For the price, everything was... Ok. The location is convenient, and that's why I gave it a two star rating. I went to the restroom in the middle of the night and saw a roach. I good sized roach at that. (A complete turn OFF for Valentine's weekend). From that point on I was paranoid thinking... How many more are there? Did any get in my luggage? Is the kitchen where they serve free breakfast clean? Long story short, I called to complain. I was told to see the manager in the morning. Upon check out, I spoke to the manager. He apologized and went on about how they have pest control to come by each month... Blah, blah, then gave me $22.00 off of my two night stay which cost over $200. (greeeat) I thought. Needless to say, I will NEVER stay at this location again.

    « Plus... or Minus? »

    Ever been in one of those offices whose walls are covered with testimonials about how fortunate you are to be in such worthy and wonderful company; they aren't always convincing, like a car dealer showing you their picture with the Pope. They are sometimes referred to as the "I Love Me" walls, although not of course by the people who put them up. But that's what you encounter when you check into this Best Western Plus location in Birmingham, Alabama; the "Plus" obviously matters to them, and to you, since you are paying about a 20% premium over standard BW rates to stay there. They are also very (very) big on reminding you their Trip Advisor ratings (4.5, as framed on the front counter). It's kind of like a challenge match, right there, Challenge on. You are probably aware that Best Western is in the process of promoting its locations into "Plus" and even "Premier" categories to compete head-to-head with the so-called "medium-sub-luxury" range, whatever that means, of Marriott's Courtyards, so you know what that means. You can't beat this location: in a Birmingham office park, surrounded with upscale and very popular restaurants from a Landry's Seafood to Asians, Ethnics, Irish steakhouses, along with the best in that same category of hotels (several Marriotts, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, La Quinta Suites), the locals love it after dark and the Interstate Motorists obviously enjoy the range of selections and the overnight security. So how well is this self-promoting Best Western Plus doing against the competition? It seems to have its own fan base, perhaps because of its free weeknight happy hours, but to this reviewer's one-night visit, not well enough to deserve its own self-promotion. Its rooms have obviously undergone a budget facelift from a tired early "suites only" concept of the Carlson era, some 20 years ago, but it seems like its present management does little more than turn the lights on and run the credit cards. No Guest Directories are available in the rooms (or at the Front Desk), come-on, they're usually as relevant as local church services, but in this case they're a clue that no one at the front desk knows its own address: no recommendations for any of those local restaurants, or knowledge of which ones offer delivery or take-out service, and they furnish a request a mimeograph sheet (with wrong numbers) for those places; it's probably a good thing you're not here for a quick workout-- the TV isn't working and neither are any of the other machines that should, they are both difficult and malfunctioning, like a truck dumped them off from a Flex Warehouse Discount Sale--of course, these fitness rooms are every hotel manager's nightmare, guests get on them in an "inappropriate condition", in dress heels with kids who think they are playground material. The lone woman at the night desk isn't too concerned, however; she only offers to pass on the equipment failures to "the manager," wherever he isn't. Enough with the Small Complaints Department: but the TV in the room is anchored (no pivots) on a wall that doesn't face anything but another wall-- not the bed, not the sofa (remember this is still a suite) or the working desk. I'd like to be fair and say something nice about this place, like the towels are nice, but next trip I'll probably be staying at LaQunita, or the Garden Inn, or a Marriott, and leave the Happy Hour to the people who rate this Minus a Plus.

    We stayed here two nights during bad weather at our destination, and the hotel was very accommodating when we needed to stay an additional day. The room was quiet, spacious, clean, and comfortable. The hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants and is right across the street from Landry's Seafood Restaurant. (There is a coupon for the restaurant at the front desk.) But what made our stay so special was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The manager, Mr. Romy Maik, took time every morning to come to the dining area, chat with all of us there, and ask if we needed anything to make our stay more comfortable. I don't ever recall that happening at any other place where we have stayed. Breakfast was excellent, too, with real scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, fresh fruit, and pastries.

    « Would Stay Here Again. »

    I found this Best Western to be clean, safe and convenient. Subtract the 17% or so in Taxes and Fees that were added to the price and it would also be a good value. I had a suite with 2 Double Beds, sitting room with desk and 3rd Bed/Sofabed,Microwave and refrigerator. The room was large, comfortable and felt as though perhaps it had been reconditioned/updated not very long ago. Bed comfort is a very subjective thing. There were two of us staying there and I found the beds to be a little firm for me while my companion found them to be perfect. I found that the management and desk staff made the difference in rating this above "average". They were friendly and made arrangements for me to store some large equipment I was traveling with. All in all, I can recommend this establishment and would stay here again myself or with my family.

    « I can't say enough nice things about this place! »

    We stayed here the first time on our way to Florida two years ago, during the ice storm of 2014. Thank goodness we had a reservation because it took us 9+ hours to get there 15 miles from I-22, in the stop-and-go and stranded traffic. We kept calling, and of course, they kept/saved our room, but by the time we got there, the lobby, breakfast area, and conference room was full of stranded people who the manager had let come in out of the cold, even though he was sold out. All the hotels were sold out. He provided them with a warm place to come inside, with clean bathrooms, and made them as comfortable as he could. Because of his actions we witnessed when we were stranded there for two days, we vowed we would always stay there, each year, on our way to Florida. So, we've stayed there two more times now, and are happy we did. He greets you with a smile and a handshake, and makes you feel welcome. And how many Best Westerns do you know that offer a free happy hour reception with 2 free drinks and light snacks, and fresh baked cookies in the lobby?! And, for just a very few dollars more, if you book a king-bed room, you can get a big king Suite, with two TVs, and a wet-bar! That was all surely nice, when we were stranded there for two days during that ice storm! We will be back again, Sir! Thank you for your concern for your guests. When I told him that I thought it was so nice how he treated those stranded motorists, he said, "Oh, that was just the right thing to do."

    My wife is very picky about the cleanliness of hotels we stay at. Part of our process is to check out the room before deciding. With two keys in hand, we went to the room which was located on the far back side of the hotel. The room smelled of cigarette smoke and had two double vs. Queen beds. We decided to return the keys and look elsewhere. For the price, we knew we could find someplace else cleaner and smoke-free. Giving it 2/5 rating because we like the quiet yet close-to-everything location and the fitness facilities looked nice.

If you ever in Birmingham you need to check it out. Great place to stay. They also have coupons for the restaurant (Landry's) , next door.

    « Best Western Carlton Suites »

    We have stayed at this Best Western in Birmingham several times. Some of the times it was just for an overnight, but at least on one occasion we spent 3 nights. We have always found the facility to be extremely clean, the staff courteous and helpful, and the breakfast bar has always been top notch. We plan to stay again and again. The staff always seem to pleased to have you stay at their place.

    Excellent hotel; staff friendly; rooms comfortable and clean; close to activities; breakfast excellent choices; pool exceptionally clean and relaxing; nice fitness area; other restaurants close by. Was able to check in a little early which gave us time to enjoy the pool before we had a hectic schedule. The lobby was nice and it did not take a long time to check in. The exterior of the hotel was very attractive with plants and a fountain. It was also easy to fine the entrance closest to our room.

    We travel full time and this is our home away from traveling when we visit grandchildren in town. Other family members join us here and it has become part of our family. Staff is excellent, room very nice and food is best ever.

    « Not Bad »

    Needed a hotel that accepted dogs. For this purpose, it was good. Coffee and biscuits/gravy were lacking. Hair dryer was not good and overheated after about 5 minutes. Had to borrow one from the front desk.

    « Great for Training Meeting »

    I needed space to conduct training for 7 of my techs. I was given a wonderful training room with sleeping rooms very close so all my techs could be close to the training area. The Manager personally got me straight with need tables, chairs, power cords and everything I needed to conduct my training in a professional and private environment. The cost of all these things (sleeping rooms, training room, equipment) was over a $1000 less than the training event I did at a different hotel last year! I will not go anywhere else... Thank you Rony for the AWESOME stay!!!

    « Best hotel for value in Birmingham »

    The set up of the room was the best ever - very convenient; they seem to have thought of all needs for business. The internet service, fitness room, breakfast and all other amenities were also great. the location is perfect - easy to get to with lots of restaurants around it. We enjoyed our stay and will make this our go-to place for travel to Birmingham.

    « Great stay. I the Drury gets the accolades, but next door was superb and half the price »

    I stayed at the Best Western for a conference in November of 2015. The room was spacious with 2 TVs, fridge, microwave, couch, etc. Breakfast was great. Everything was perfect. And it was half the price of the Drury next door. I would definitely stay again.

    « Best low cost deal in the Southeast! »

    Large clean suites with microwave and refrigerator; comfortable beds and separate living area with office accommodations. Beyond supportive manager and staff, and should you happen to arrive here Monday-Thursday the free cocktail hours w/warm snack foods is truly welcoming.

    « Friendly Place to stay »

    We have stayed at the Carlton Suites for years and always enjoy the delicious breakfast and clean comfortable rooms. The staff is always eager to help. I just wish they had the SEC channel on TV. The volume on the TV would go off every time the set was turned off and you would have to manually adjust the volume on the side of the TV before the remote would work.

    « Good value for money »

    Staff was very nice and informative. Everything was clean, and breakfast was great. The attendants were continually cleaning and refreshing the food. Would stay there again, was pleasantly surprised. We only stayed one night, so did not check out the pool or workout room

    « The Magic of Magic City! »

    The Carlton Suites sets the tone of hotel accomodations for the city! Everything is top notch, from the friendly greeting on arrival to the somber goodbye when you leave. They make you want to come back for true Southern hospitality!

    « Good center of stay »

    This is a very nice Best Western Hotel. It seems that it is in a place that many restaurants and shopping centers are available. We were able to walk to most shops in the area. If you go to the local college football games you should consider this your base of operations

    « Practical choice. »

    We had a great night's sleep and the room was clean. It's a short drive to downtown and easy access to the freeway. The staff was friendly and the free breakfast included lots of choices. The only negative comment I have is that during the day after the cleaning is done, the smell of antiseptic cleaning solution is pretty intense. By the evening we were either used to it or the smell faded. But, for a short stay and a good price, this place worked for us.

    « Great Location - Easy Drive to Talladega Superspeedway »

    This was our second year at the Best Western Plus Carlton Suites! We travel as a group of four, so this location is perfect having a wide-variety of restaurants to choose from and there's plenty of shopping for any needs. Walmart/Sams Club, Starbucks and many other retail choices nearby. The property itself is beautifully landscaped and kept immaculate. Although the rooms are dated, they are always very neat and clean. The rooms are considered suites. Our's is usually a suite with two double beds and a double sleeper sofa in the living area. Rooms have a refrigerator and an office desk/chair to work at. Complimentary breakfast buffet each morning, along with free Wifi. This hotel is a great location for those who are in town for races at Talladega Superspeedway. We usually book a shuttle to/from the race at the hotel. Very convenient and no hassle.

    « BEST in every since of the word! »

    Was completely surprised with this stay. Not usually a Best Western person, but this location got good reviews and I now know why. We booked this location due to the suite, price AND the indoor pool which our kids loved! We had tons of room in our suite. The living space is separate from the bed space yet the sofa turns into a sleeper. The bathroom is good too...one person can be in the tub while another can get ready outside of the bathroom so one person isn't taking all the space. Good area...was right in the middle of all the places we visited while in town (from Downtown all the way down to Cahaba area). Shopping and dining close by...definitely recommend Landry's Seafood House right across the street. Will definitely be back!!!

    « Definitely was the best! »

    This was the best place I have stayed in awhile for a moderately-priced hotel room. Price was excellent! The room layout was terrific! And the breakfast, the staff, and all of the amenities were spot-on. Terrific location as well!

    « Excellent Value! Attractive, Clean, and Great nights sleep! »

    This Best Western Carlson Suites is a great pick for business, couples, friends, and solo travelers. Management and staff were very friendly and attentive. This is demonstrated by the cleanliness of rooms, managers reception, warm cookies at check-in, and free breakfasts. If going out to dinner for something different walk across the street to Landry's Seafood Restaurant or half a block to O'Charleys. Shopping is accessible as well by going back to the first traffic light turn left and go straight across the next intersection to plenty of shopping to meet most any need and additional eateries. There is workout and swimming facility for guests, Each room is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, desk, couch, TV and free wifi with good speed.. This is my second visit this month and I will always select this lodging as my preference when in the Birmingham area in the future as well!!!

    « clean, safe, good value »

    I picked this hotel based on the good reviews on this site, and I agree with them. I have no complaints about any aspect of my stay, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I'm ever in the area.

    « Great deal in Birmingham »

    This BW+ was an excellent value. It was clean and new throughout, while the staff (including the manager) was attentive and efficient. The room was nice, tho the TV lacked an HDMI port (that's the trouble with being among the earliest to offer large screen TV!). The bed was incredibly comfortable and the pillows deserved a special shout-out. Our only lament was that the eggs and sausage gravy served at the otherwise really nice breakfast were tasteless. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

    « Return Visit as Excellent as the First! »

    We stayed here on our way to Destin, Florida! We were promptly greeted at check-in by Mr Naik-the hotel manager who seems to be everywhere at any hour checking on his guests! Ultra clean and comfortable, very nice breakfast, and lovely indoor pool! I wish all chain hotels were run, maintained, and as welcoming as this Best Western! Everyone who works here has a smile! Once again, we will return!

    « Great stop on the way to Orlando! »

    We were driving to Orlando from MO, and Birmingham was our stop. we had looked at a few room sat other hotels and this Best Western had a suite that was perfect for our family! The room was great, and the breakfast included the next day was out of this world!

    « Great Staff »

    When we got to this hotel, the front desk staff immediately made us feel welcome and appreciated. Warm, melt in your mouth chocolate cookies, coffee and/or bottled water was offered even before we got our room keys. After the official check in we went up to our room. What a delight!! A living room and a separate bedroom!! The air conditioner was in the bedroom which made for a delightful cooler sleep and a comfortable living area. The full hot breakfast buffet was a delight too - eggs, sausage, bacon, GRITS, biscuits, gravy, cereals, muffins, oatmeal, bagels, Danishes, coffee, juice and more. You most definitely get your monies worth at this BW!!!!

    « A great place to stay for weary travelers. »

    We really were impressed with the hotel and the breakfast with the scrambled eggs was great. The room was very clean. We were also impressed with the cleanliness of the lobby and breakfast area. It was so refreshing after a long day of traveling to stay in such a pleasant place.

    The Appearance, Staff, Location and comfort of this hotel are rivaled by none, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet, the heated pool and very pleasantly surprising bar and happy hour are an added elegant amenity

    « Fantastic place! Clean, comfortable beds »

    Stayed here for 2 nights visiting family in the area. Room was large with fridge and microwave. Shower was strong and hot. Have a full hot breakfast in the mornings. Used the pool area-super clean and pretty-warm water and plenty of towels. Big flat screen in our room which could be seen from bed or couch-we had the king suite. There were extra blankets and pillows-great touch. Would recommend for a stay.

    Friendly staff makes up for dis-jointed décor (traveling for 2 1/2 weeks, so seen a lot of hotels) and small breakfast area. Pool area needs a bathroom and or changing area. Only 1 person manning the breakfast area and some items not replenished promptly (she tried her best). Only stayed 1 night.
