We came to the Best Western after having a horrible experience with the nasty Econolodge across the highway. It is a little difficult to get to, but it's worth it. The price is affordable and the rooms are very nice! They have coffee pots, flat screens, a mini fridge, WiFi, and a microwave. The rooms seem to be recently updated,... More

This review could have been excellent or poor based on the range of the experience, so it is getting an average. It was graduation weekend at University of Alabama and the hotels close to campus were either sold out or way over our budget, so I opted for the BW in Northport, a 3.5 mile, 10 minute ride to the...

Stayed here for the Alabama/Texas A&M game November 9-11. VERY convenient, the rooms are clean, the beds are extremely comfortable. Very friendly service as well. Really recommend. We plan to stay here again next time we come back to Tuscaloosa!

The room itself was fine. Clean and had a fridge/microwave unit and a small coffee maker, and plenty of towels supplied. The pillows however were murderous on my neck. Short overly stuffed things, more like throw pillows for decoration. BRING YOUR OWN! Or toss theirs into Aa trash bag and drive over then a few times. The complimentary breakfast included... More

Hotel not bad. Rooms double or more for Gameday Weekends with 2-night minimum. Location okay but only access via southbound US 82, McFarland. However... Screw up in making reservation. Management staff and leadership are the pits. Unhelpful. Uncaring. Inflexible. Don't care and thus inappropriately Double charged. Best Western Customer Care unable to do anything as again local management with final... More

We are sorry that you were unsatisfied with you customer service. We normally receive great reviews on our staff. However, unfortunately due to high demand during football season we are forced to adhere to a 7-day cancellation policy for all rooms booked. All of our September, October, and November football weekends were completely booked and sold-out in May of 2012.... More

My husband and I decided to stay at this hotel based on the great ratings, customer reviews, and low price. We were not disappointed! The room was very clean and the staff was friendly. The room was modern, updated, and housed all the amentities you could need. It was a $15 cab ride to the Tuscaloosa Ampitheater (not too bad).... More

The Best Western Catalina Inn in Tuscaloosa, Alabama was a real discovery. When you drive up you realize it is in the old style 'motor motels' of the past and you wonder what condition it could possibly be in to be so old. The landscaping was neat and trim. The lobby/check in area is small but clean and organized. Our... More

We were just in town for the night as we were seeing the Blue Angels the next day. We didn't want to spend a lot on a room since we'd be arriving later in the evening and checking out early the next day. After reading the reviews we decided this should be a nice place to stay....and it was!! Upon... More
