From the moment of arrival at this Gardendale hotel, guests are treated like part of the family and offered spacious rooms which are accommodating and comfortable.

Gardendale hotels are conveniently close to many attractions, including local fine dining and all the excitement of the University of Alabama. We welcome students, faculty, staff and their families for extended stays or shorter visits, and you can make the most of being close to downtown Birmingham. Events on campus from graduation to homecoming bring travelers to the region.

Being so close to the University of Alabama makes it easy to take in a lecture, get to class, or attend one of the many sporting events. Plus, with the brand recognition and great service of this Gardendale hotel, even traveling for business with the university can be part vacation. Indulge in a theatrical performance, take in a gallery showing from the art department or try out one of the many eateries near campus.

Many guests prefer to indulge in the relaxing facilities, such as the outdoor pool thats perfect for cooling off during those sizzling summers. With an exercise facility and meeting room on site, its easy to keep up with those workout regimens or host a business get-together. Friendly staff members who epitomize southern hospitality are happy to help with logistics to ensure that travelers who are in charge of a meeting have everything necessary to take care of business.

Staying in sheer comfort guarantees that every trip is a great one. By staying close to downtown, yet far enough away to escape the bustle of the city, guests at Best Western Plus Gardendale get the best of both worlds.

Thank you for your feedback. I will let you know that we are remodeling the hotel. Our rooms are double beds not queens so they are smaller. I am glad you were surprised I have a great group of girls that keep this hotel very clean. We hope you will come back soon.
