The staff was very polite, but that was the only real plus of this hotel. I stayed there while traveling for one night, and even with ultra-low standards, I was disappointed. The room was cold, and the heat did not work. The cable was fuzzy, making it impossible to watch television. Additionally, the blankets on the bed had black hairs... More

We specifically chose this hotel because all of the rooms are supposed to be non-smoking. Smoke is a major trigger for my asthma. After we checked in, we began to unload our things and realized that there was a bunch of guys hanging out around their cars drinking beer and smoking in the parking lot. The smoke was blowing right... More

There are very few places to stay in Tuscaloosa, AL, which are reasonably priced, located in a safe area and decently furnished. My expectations were MORE than exceeded staying at this location. Near the interstate, right next door to a Cracker Barrel restaurant, but most importantly, the room was super clean. The staff was extremely polite and helpful too. The... More

This hotel has been newly renovated. And has a new paint job and a top of the line security system. Video Cameras are in the parking lot, lobby, hallways, eating areas, and stairwells. This is a white woman's dream hotel! Our room was pretty nice; it had a clean smell and fresh towels. All of the rooms here are also... More

The staff was extremely accommodating for the needs of our family. All of our special requests were quickly met by the excellent front desk staff.

The hotel was recently restored, with spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and ok amenities. The room (king "suite" with fridge, microwave, food-prep area, and sleeper sofa) was nicely appointed but had little storage space. Two big drawers but both full of extra bed linens; no closet. The location is 8-10 miles from the tourist draws of Tuscaloosa. The breakfast was fair... More

My husband and I received Homecoming tickets 4 days before the game. I found this room on Expedia.com and we booked it. I was very pleased with the location, room and staff.

Stopped for a night while traveling. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Cracker barrel next door. The only drawback was the floor above us being very creaky when someone. walked across it. The beds were pretty comfortable. Slept well. The breakfast was just ok. They said it started at five, but there still was no orange juice at six.... More

On the plus side, the hotel is only a 15 minute drive to University of Alabama and right off the highway. It is also very clean, updated, and the staff was friendly during check-in. The reasons I only rate a 3 star are the beds, breakfast, and hall lighting. 1st the double rooms only have full size beds not queens.... More
