    It all just depends on what you're looking for with your stay in Selma. It's an old hotel, close to 200 years old, if I understood correctly. Some of it is incredibly nice, and has tons of character - the lobby, the courtyard, the galleries...More

    We love staying in historic hotels and this was no exception. Our room overlooked the Alabama river and we so enjoyed sitting outside in the early evening. The decor could use refreshing, but otherwise quite comfortable especially for the price.

    Well, we parked on the street. But, we have handicap plates so we were able to park right in the front of the hotel. They do not have a parking lot attached so you have to park on the street.
