This hotel is pretty good. The front desk staff was friendly, there is a free breakfast and the location is good. There is no elevator so I had to drag my suitcase up and down stairs. In addition, the pressure in the shower was very low and the water was either scalding or cold.

I will make BW my hotel of choice. The staff at Auburn/Opelika was extremely fantastic. The Pancake Bar was to die for. They made me feel right at home. I was mostly impressed by the shampoo and the body wash that was already in the shower. I was greeted when I walked in and I was also told to have... More

Visited for sons basic graduation. Takes about 35 minutes to get to the post. Allow an hour and remember that these cities straddle a time zone, so GA is an hour ahead. Pretty standard rooms with great TV and expansive cable. Like 100+ channels. Free wifi, larger fridge and microwave in room. Beds are firm but comfy... they may be... More

Nice BW, very reasonably priced. Wi-fi was good, direct tv a pain to deal with. Breakfast was basic, area small. Room was clean. Basic toiletries and good towels. Exterior doors not locked, but never felt unsafe. Only complaint was the ice machine next to our room, should have changed as soon as I saw it. Someone getting a lot of... More

Like the title says, you can stay here and be fine. It's near enough to Auburn (especially on a football weekend) and right off the highway. Breakfast is ok (grits were great!) and it's just this side of clean and nice enough. Sleep quality was very good. No elevator (only two floors) and side entrances are open 24/7...?? People were...

This was a very good choice. We picked it because of the reviews and were not disappointed. It was clean and quiet, bed comfortable and staff very nice. Breakfast included hot choices and was an added value. I would definitely stay here again.

Love this hotel. Always clean and comfortable, inside and out. Reasonably priced except on football game weekends, then you can forget it. This hotel is always well maintained.
