Stayed here in July 2014 for a family reunion. The rooms were very clean and spacious. It was very quiet. The beds were awesome. The breakfast and service was fantastic. There was one lady that made me laugh every morning at breakfast. Wish I could remember her name, but she was so helpful. Everything was so clean. They made us... More

I was greeted by Nina at the front desk who is so cheerful, helpful and friendly after driving 7 hours in the horrible rain. Very pleasant surprise to be greeted by such warmth! I immediately was impressed with the lobby, suites, and all facilities...the cleanliness. Breakfasts were delicious and an array of food items while evenings were a treat with... More

I was only there 1 night, but the hotel is wonderful! The front desk staff was welcoming and friendly. The lobby, elevators, halls and room were spotless! I did not use the pool or exercise facilities, but they looked nice. The free breakfast was yummy and the dining area comfortable. The only downside was that there were no vending machines... More

When traveling for business I love staying at a Reidence Inn. It's like staying in an apartment. I like that I can prepare my own food and not worry about going out every night! Also,the fitness center was well equipped! The nightly socials were very nice and the selection of foods were awesome! But to top it off, Customer service... More

I'm a big fan of Residence Inns. And I've had so many good service and room experiences at them, I notice slip-ups quickly. This hotel, for the short time I was here, met the high mark. The front desk clerk, after calmly and deftly handling a taxi problem for another guest, turned to me and was as friendly and welcoming... More

After 15 hours of driving, it was such a relief to arrive at this property where the staff really do treat guests like they are coming home. Once I realized our 11 hour drive was turning into a 15 hour drive, I called ahead and spoke to "James" to confirm our late check in. I was assured that our room... More

I had a very late night arrival into Birmingham's Airport and needed a hotel room until I could take a morning shuttle to Tuscaloosa. This hotel is perfect for a short stay even though it does not have shuttle service to and from the airport. If you can afford a cab ride that is $15-20 each way, this works. A... More

Very nice rooms and friendly staff. Perfect location for access to downtown attractions. Breakfast was good. The only issue was on-site parking. Parking is limited at a cost of $10/day. If you have to leave there's a good chance you will have to use nearby street parking when you return. Definitely recommend this hotel!

Stayed in February 2015 for 2 weeks here. This is my second time i visited here. Same experience as the 1st trip. Rooms are very good with all the amenities including a kitchenette, stove-top, microwave and refrigerator. All these makes you feel at home. House keeping was excellent. Breakfast is widespread and with some hot options. Enjoyed the stay again.

Stayed for two nights 3/6/15 & 3/7/15. We had a two bedroom, two bath. Very spacious and clean room. Nice that the toilet and shower are separated from the vanity area. Great breakfast - first day -- bacon, scrambled eggs, make your own waffles, bread options, some pastries, sausage corn dog (never seen that before!), cereal and bananas. Second day... More
