This hotel is conveniently located but it can be difficult to access it or exit, depending on where you are coming from or going to. The room was fine but because it faced the Main Street there was a lot of road noise in the room much of the night. The breakfast buffet was certainly adequate.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 April 2017 via mobile

This hotel is in a great location in Decatur. The staff was positive and upbeat and always had a pleasant greeting for us whether we were coming in or going out. Krishna was of great help to us with poise and excellent customer service. We were late sleepers so we didn't have breakfast except one morning and there was plenty...

We stopped here for an overnight stay on our way down to Gulf Shores. Southern hospitality was out in full force from our arrival to departure time. They have cookies and coffee in the lounge to enjoy upon arrival. Nicely updated hotel. The only 'issue', it isn't right off I-65, but the only one that had rooms available! Enjoyed our...

Service fantastic. We arrived at night. Krishna from the front desk was very helpful. The room not only clean, it smelled clean. Breakfast healthy and tasty. Stephanie personally served coffee. I saw her preparing a waffle for a little kid and helping a couple with their grandchildren. Elaina was been trained, yet offered great service.

Going to use this chain of hotels as often as possible as they are so neat and clean and beautiful. I found them very comfortable and spacious and liked the decor as well. This one was a little further from our route but worth the extra drive. Would like to have restaurant in property though.

Everyone was extremely nice and helpful! Great staff and I saw why after experiencing the manager. We got upgrading to a room with a jacuzzi and welcome bags. She did not have to do either. Housekeeping was really polite and checked on us whenever we walked by them. Definitely a great experience for us both!

The room was clean and comfortable. The cleaning staff was supportive and accommodating to my needs and wants. There was a hot breakfast with various choices of food that was cooked on site. The cook asked me if I needed any specialty foods. The front desk people were also accommodating. The hotel was pet friendly too. Other guests were quiet...
