We were looking for an inexpensive, clean and comfortable hotel close to our family in Tuscaloosa. The Econo Lodge fulfilled those requirements. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The hot water was hot. Little extras like a night light and a power strip were appreciated. But, this is a simple, basic hotel. If you are looking for... More

This is not the Hyatt. This is a simple, somewhat old-fashioned motel. The desk staff were friendly, the breakfast was free, the a/c worked well, and the bed was comfortable. For my son and myself on a game weekend, it met all of our needs for $100-$200 less than many other choices in the Tuscaloosa area. No frills is fine... More

There was a yellow toe/fingernail on the bed. The manager actually got mad at me and told me he made the bed himself and I was making it up. He tried to refuse to give me a refund until I told him I was calling the police. Even then he continued to argue with me. He kept saying I was... More

We chose this hotel regardless of the reviews, now I wish we would have listened. At check in we asked questions about the rooms, the woman working the front desk was very rude the entire time. She would give one word answers and it seemed as though she really hated her job. Not to mention the lobby was very stuffy... More

We went for a family graduation. My family checked in but we never made it to our rooms. It was the only place in town that had available rooms. Now we know why. After reading other reviews we checked for bed bugs....we found evidence of them. Went to front desk to report them and the lady at the front desk... More

If you want fancy, this is not the place for you. But it is clean and the employees are very nice from housekeeping to Becky,at the front desk, to Jack, the manager. We got in late and got the last room and it was a smoking room, but Becky gave us Fabreze and some other odor spray and we left... More

We stayed during a football weekend in Tuscaloosa, so the $75 room went for over $200, Ouch. There were no other rooms to be found within 30 miles. On entering the room, there was an odor, like a bad copy of Febreze. The mattress was too soft and the linens appeared clean and worn. The previous occupant of the room... More

This is the worst experience I have had in a hotel EVER! I checked in and the first room I was assigned had electrical problems - the AC and lights on one half of the room did not work. The room key worked on every third try. I wish I could say that was the worst of it. After arguing... More

My sister and i just stayed at Econo Lodge in Northport , AL. It is disgusting - we found bedbugs in our beds! The best part is, the manager said he didn't know what they were, and he didn't have any other rooms, so he said he could change our sheets. (If we knew they were bedbugs we would have... More
