The best thing to say about this hotel is the front desk staff. Kori is super sweet and helpful. I overheard her on the phone in spanish and I thought to myself what a great way to help others looking for a place to stay that are not from here. She made my experience a good one. Rena was also...

My husband and I stayed at the Howard Johnson for 2 nights. The clerk on duty, Kori, was so kind and polite. My husband felt better staying there since Kori spoke spanish and he could ask her for anything he needed while I went to my meeting. The other front desk staff were also polite and informative. The room is... More

This HoJo needs to be cleaned up a bit. It had a stale smell as we walked in the entry door. No elevator. Although the rooms said "no smoking" the halls smelled stale like smoke. The rooms did not smell as bad. Bathrooms were dirty. Toilets worked for us but not for one of my friends In another room. Towels... More

We arrived at the property expecting your average hotel. Which it was. However, little things added up. The hallway smelled awful...I am a 26 recently graduated college grad and even to me the hallway was awful smelling. Next, the bathtub was full of water when we arrived. Who knows what was in the water? I had to open it myself.... More

We travel through the Tuscaloosa area several times a year and the Howard Johnson - University of Alabama Tuscaloosa is where we stay. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The large rooms are always clean and comfortable. Breakfast variety has dwindled a little over the years, but it's all still a great value for a good night's stay.

you get a big room with all you need, fridge, microwave and so on. The Internet in the evening is very slow. The breakfast is with waffles, bagels, toast and cakes. The staff enjoy the breakfast, too. So we get no coffee. The Hotel has no lift, but it is normal for two floors.

We checked in with the expectation my Mother In Law would be in the Hospital for several days. We booked and paid in advance for three days. The morning after we checked in we were told she would be going home. Good news for her..but we still had two days paid for. I made contact with the front desk and... More
