Nice to be treated as a Club Carlson member at check-in. The location of property is pretty good to highway and restaurants. Missed breakfast as we came down from room at 9:35 and the dining room doors were already closed. Our room was clean and comfortable.

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in for the price we paid (less than $60- woohoo priceline!). The location was very convenient- close to university and on the highway but zero highway noise. Very helpful and pleasant staff, cookies for the evening. The room was pretty large, and the beds were dreamy (forgive the pun) with... More

You won't find any place better to stay in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. From the first phone call to reserve a room, to the moment we checked out, the staff was kind, considerate, helpful and made sure we were taken care of. Bed was comfortable, clean room, complimentary breakfast, and fresh cookies when we arrived! The design of the hotel was quiet.... More

You can always count on Country Inn to be nice and clean with a great breakfast! The Tuscaloosa location had very friendly staff. Jalessa was great with checking in and pointing out good places to eat, and helped with directions to the air show this weeknd. They always have yummy cookies available to eat which my kids loved! This one... More

This hotel is conveniently located to University of Alabama. Check in very efficient, front desk staff could be more friendly. The beds were comfortable. Breakfast is complimentary, and choices available. Free wifi which seemed to work well. Room was clean, bedding and towels too!

We were passing through on our way to South Carolina and stopped at this hotel. It was easy to get to from the interstate, close to restaurants and gas stations. The entry was clean, the front staff was always helpful and the rooms were clean and quiet. Wifi was included and with easy connect and stable. A week later, we... More

We had a king bed and pull out couch in our room. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. The beds were comfortable. You may have to ask for additional pillows and blankets if you use the couch but the kids had brought their own. The hotel was clean and quiet. Easy to access from the road. Disappointed that...

Arrived downstairs at 6 promptly for breakfast, no one was to be found, sign said it was at 6, no one was at the desk, I could hear snoring but after several attempts of calling out, I couldn't find anyone without going behind the desk and I didn't do that, decided that if this was the pattern, it wasn't going...
