We were returning from ALA to NC after buying a motorcycle and needed a place to stay for the night. Because we did not know exactly where we'd want to stay, it was late in the evening before we began calling hotels. Nearly everything in the Tuscaloosa area was booked, so we traveled on to Bessemer. Several there were booked... More

Had to contact the front desk twice about the idiots in room above. They had other complaints too. Should have kicked them out but I ended up moving. Room was nice but a little small. Very clean and other wise a nice hotel.

Thank goodness it was for only 1 night. Bathroom was atrocious. The shower drain was just a gaping hole. No counter in the bathroom to put your toiletries on. The plumbing under the lavatory was covered with the nastiest looking insulated boots. They were black. There was no chair in the room on which to sit. The bedspread was dirty.... More

Comfortable beds and a big selection for breakfast. Do not have to bring my pillow from home anymore, Select a type of pillow what a smart idea! Pillow Toppers that just say o'so comfortable. The prices weren't too bad either. The coffee could use a little help though.

After 11 years of traveling to Tuscaloosa to see family, I mistakenly booked a trip the weekend of a home football game. Room rates locally were exorbitant (hotel we usually stayed at for $69 was $369 - no typo!). Found this in Bessemer, about 30 minutes away, and although it was $135, for a football weekend that was a real... More

Stayed one night. Room appeared like it was fairly recently remodeled. Clean, no frills but comfortable room. Coffee maker, safe and microwave in room. Typical hot continental breakfast with "eggs", sausage, waffles, bagels, fruits, yogurts, etc. We paid around $89 with all the taxes included. Your room key gets 10% off surrounding restaurants.

We had a beautiful room! Number 111. The rates were great so I reserved a king suite and we got our money's worth! Gorgeous big pillow top bed, clean bathroom, semi separate sitting room with overstuffed chair and ottoman. The kitchenette appliances (including coffee maker) had their own nook so all of the counter space was available for our convenience.... More

We enjoyed our 2-night stay in early May. The staff was wonderful and our room couldn't have been better. This hotel has just been remodeled and is beautiful! We highly recommend it and will stay here again when we're in the area.

This was a great place for the price. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. I was traveling through and needed a room for one night. The breakfast was ok. The location is convenient.

I was staying at this Hotel on Monday the 28th of April when the Tornado came thru. The staff did a great job and kept everyone calm. They got everyone off the upper floors and had them wait in the lobby. First time I have ever been in this type of situation.
