We booked this hotel on our way south and were very fortunate to get the second to last room. The room was comfortable and the bed was divine! We all slept very well. The breakfast girl was so helpful and nice. I would stay here again.

The hotel was average, a very comfortable bed, clean and felt safe. An older building, with signs of some upgrades. Great location near highway, shopping and university. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, wonderful breakfast lady, but less than average breakfast. Fake eggs, oj tasted like plastic, watery oatmeal. But the bagels muffins and waffles looked good though. I was on... More

Woriking in Tuscaloosa and living in Birmingham is a bit of a daily commute. Throw in a snow/ice storm and it becomes an impossibility to navigate the roads. Needing a place to stay for a day or more, I called Country Inn and Suites and reserved a room for the night. Upon arrival, I was met by two of the... More

Stayed here on a return trip from Texas. Booked over the phone and was offered a discounted rate (which we secured). Upon arrival, greeted by a professional, courteous young man at the check-in counter. Our suite room was clean and quiet and just what we needed after a long day of driving with our 2-year old son. Breakfast was good... More

We stopped here late one night on a long trip. The front desk clerk was very friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable and quite. The breakfast was ample and the attendant was very friendly and helpful. The lobby library and cookies were a nice touch. Would highly recommend.

I'm active duty military and I have stayed at lots of hotels, this was definitely one of my better experiences. The location is ideal. It is in town, but not in the middle of everything so you don't deal with all of the crazy traffic. There are several decent places to dine close by. The hotel is about a block... More

My husband and I stayed here Nov. 27th and 28th (first time). Room was spotless and plenty of bath towels and wash cloths. The bathroom needed some cosmetic "surgery" where the wall was coming loose from the shower surround, but on the positive side there was a recently updated comfort height toilet which is so good for people with back...

Nice size room and bath, but too close to the street. Difficult to adjust temperature. Comforter weighed a "ton", and other blanket was too light. Staff was very helpful and eager to please. May be best value for a college town, but taxes are high and total was much higher than nicer places in other towns.

This hotel has some potential but is not the best. It was clean and the facilities were nice enough. The front desk staff seemed a bit disorganized (we requested adjoining rooms but were offered rooms on different floors. They eventually found us rooms on the same floor, at least) but were generally somewhat helpful. The breakfast in the morning was... More

This was my second visit to this hotel, and it was again a good choice. Set back a couple of blocks from the interstate highway, it is quiet and peaceful with a homey design that is typical of the Country Inn and Suites chain.
