With a son at UA we travel to Tuscaloosa often. We try to stay closer to campus, but our usual hotels were booked. We chose the Country Inn & Suites because we have stayed in them before in other cities when we are looking for separate sleeping and living spaces and have found them adequate. Unfortunately, we found this property... More

Great location. New hotel with new rooms with a very friendly & accommodating staff. Good amenities including pool and business center. I'd readily stay here again in a town where you can get some pretty scary places to stay with "national chain" names. Many of the better known names in Tuscaloosa are old, worn, and rundown with sketchy locations. Country... More

I have stayed in a lot of hotels over the years, and you can tell when the management and employees are invested in providing the best customer experience possible. The mid-range, budget-minded hotels that most of us stay in are a compromise between cost and amenities. Country Inn & Suites offers comfortable bedding, free internet, and (usually) a decent breakfast.... More

Always enjoy staying at this hotel. Staff is friendly. Rooms are clean. We chose this location because we have a daughter in school at the University. It is close to her, plus close to the interstate and shopping.

We have stayed in a lot of hotels over the past 5 years and although the room sizes were good (we had two king suites) but they both smelled - one was smoke smell and the other was mold smell. A quick spray with my room deoderizer helped but we shouldn't have had to do that! Also, we had no... More

We stayed here while visiting UA and the stay was pleasant. The room was clean, had a refrigerator and the breakfast was very good the next morning. It's not too far from the school and I would definitely stay here again.

For a one day stay couldn't ask for anything more, clean comfortable room at a good rate. Free breakfast in the morning was nice. Convenient location not far from interstate, gas stations and food close by.
