Question Places to stay in Atmore

Hi

I am a new contributor to the boards. I have been lurking around for months. I just started writing the other day I just did not figure I had much to say prior but now I need help. That sounds terrible but I really am confused

I am trying to put together a trip to visit my friend in later this year. I am having the devil of a time with a hotel though. I found a Days Inn Best western and a hotel called Wind Creek. It just seems that no matter what day I put in for my stay they don't have any rooms. Is it that busy down there?

I also heard something about a hospitality building or something near Holman. Does anyone know anything about that.

My friends says I do not need to worry about where to stay that his family will let me stay with them but I am not sure about that. I am the kind of person that likes to do things on my own

Also anyone know which airport is closer? I think it is Mobile

Once again thanks for the assistance

Mobile is the closest airport. I know about the Best Western in Atmore, but I also experienced that all rooms were always booked. Dont know why.
There is a hospitality house in Atmore
http://www.atmorehospitalityhouse.com/
I didnt stay there, but you can get a room for a night, it sounds nice.
I am overthere every second month, next time in one week (YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) so if anybody is also there then, I would like to meet you.

I always stay at the Best Western. I wondered why they were always booked too, being as there is NOTHING in Atmore....except a casino right next door! lol Call & book your room in advance. I have had to go back up the interstate to stay at another place (after driving 5 hrs. there) when I didn't book a reservation prior to coming.

There are bunches of good motels and hotels around though...I stay with a family in Saraland, its a 45 minute ride away ( in airport direction so its on the way when you come from Mobile) and a very nice little town. In Saraland you have everything and there are a few new and very comfortable looking hotels. You only need to take the highway to reach Holman, its pretty easy.

Default Hotels

Okay they are building a new Days Inn that will be finished in May. That is why it is always booked online they have not finished building it yet

The Best Western I called and they changed the name. If you call there personally you can get a room

The is also a nearby hotels in nearby towns

I thought this might help someone.

Hospitality House is great and all you have to do is leave a donation to stay there. I have stayed there twice, it has been some time, but it is a nice house with about 4 or 5 bedrooms with shared living room and kitchen. You just need to call ahead to arrange visit. 251-446-7110 is the number that I have. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure how long they will allow you to stay but it might be worth finding out
