This is the best hotel in this area. The location is great, its literally right across the street from cracker barrel, applebees, waffle house. But, you dont have to worry about breakfast because this hotel serves a great complimentary hot breakfast complete with waffles, eggs, bacon/sausage, biscuits and gravy. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Very well laid out.... More

Beautiful hotel room. Clean and magnificently comfortable bedding. Great shower, solid breakfast (though carbs do not seem to worry Alabamans-- first time I've seen chocolate cake and chocolate cupcakes for breakfast!). Great staff. We arrived late and left early on our way to Tuscaloosa. Could have spent less, but was worth every cent!

Over many years, an excellent place to stay. The hotel and rooms are always clean and easy to get to. The restaurant decor is excellent, and the breakfasts are outstanding. The staff is always helpful and knowledgeable.

I think the hotel was over price for the quality of service. I really didn't lack the fact that the bathroom did not have a sink in it. The main sink was in the bedroom which made it uncomfortable for anyone to get a proper night rest.

Great staff, clean & comfortable rooms. Great location, just steps from Cracker Barrel & Applebee's and all this with a good rate. Could not have been more pleased. Will definitely mark this as a place to stay in the future.

The hotel staff was great. However, the room was musty, the air condition was loud, and the decor was outdated. We were told the room was pet free but my son sneezed through out the night. It was not a restful evening. The pool was a green color and dirty.

I am a truck driver on a very tight budget where I stay. Just happen to stumble across here and find that they have truck parking in the back. Pricing is very reasonable and there are very nice places to eat within walking distance. The room was nice but I have been in other BW pluses and it's a little... More

The staff was nice and very helpful. The room was nicely appointed and the bed super comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We were here for a concert and after an exhausting day and evening, it was nice to relax in the room.

If you are looking for a hotel in this area stay far away from this one. I have never had such a bad experience as I did. When getting in the elevator, there was water puddles on floor from people being in pool and riding up and down as well as a handful of French fries on elevator floor. When... More
