Stayed with a group of friends for the Hot Hundred century bike ride. The hotel was clean and up to date. The hotel is conveniently located to all of the attractions of Tuscaloosa. The breakfast was GREAT!!!!! I highly recommend this hotel.

The inn was very clean and the staff were very professional. It was close to an event we were attending. The only downside was the breakfast area which was very small. There was some hot food, but seemed to be lacking as I watched numerous people raise the lid and walk away. The waffle maker was malfunctioning also.

We stopped in at 9:15pm as we were passing through on a road trip and the man at the front desk was very nice and even gave me a rate lower than I could find online with trip advisor, Travelocity, etc. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and the breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts I've ever had....

Have stayed at this location about ten times and have always had excellent service and clean rooms. There is a very nice clean pool for your use along with a work out room.The breakfast is always on time and has a nice variety of food choices. Coffee is excellent.
