"Customer services was excellent!!!! And cleanliness."
Timothy from Kansas City, MO US rated Drury Inn & Suites Birmingham Southeast 8 out of 10 on September 09, 2011
"It was a good hotel in a great location for a reasonable price. There were some elevator issues on the day of our stay that made going and coming from the fourth floor a bit time consuming/ inconvenient. This could happen anywhere..."
