Super 8 Montgomery
2707 East South Blvd., Montgomery, Alabama, 36116, United States
Decent Room, Bad Neighborhood
The room at this hotel was not bad and had a few extras. However, I would not reccommend staying here unless you are looking for drugs, or prostitutes, or prostitutes with drugs (like the one that approached me in the parking lot).

Travel Tips for Montgomery
Don't be afraid to say hi.
Montgomery has went through many trials and tribulations in it's past. From being the First Capital of the Confederacy during The War Between the States to being at the very front of the Civil Rights movement. This has made the people a very special group. Tied heavily to their traditions, and never afaid to give a wave and ask how things are.
I honestly see more outright racism in my home state of Indiana than you will ever experience in Montgomery. Now this isn't including the feelings people hide beneath their outward emotions, but that happens all over our country.
It wasn't anything while walking down Dexter Ave taking pictures that you are approached by people just wishing you a good day.
I've been harrased by Scientologists in Clearwater Florida, haggled with bums in Atlanta, fought rush hour road rage traffic in Orlando, and been invited to someones house for ribs in Montgomery. It was definitely a welcomed experience.
It's a different town with old southern values and great people, no matter their color.

Tami Kane's Montgomery Page
My brother-in-law's mom lives on the 'outskirts' and we visit her a good bit. Montgomery as a city is really interesting to me. There's not a whole lot to do but there's a lot going on. That may be hard to understand but that's how I look at it. I'm not in the city very long. We usually stay more out in the country. Personally, I LOVE it there! There are miles of rolling grass lands, horses running and grazing, and the people are really nice. We saddle-up the horse and go riding all back in the roads, run in some fields, and just spend a relaxing day on the back of a BEAUTIFUL 18hand high, Quarter Horse X Thoroughbred, chestnut gelding named Oakie. Beautiful place!
