Judging by the reviews of other hotels, Tuscaloosa has an abundance of sketchy motels full of bad surprises, particularly in the lower price range. This hotel is a happy exception. The front desk was friendly and professional. The room was clean, large, and quiet, with a very comfortable bed.. (Ours had one king-size bed as well as a nice sitting... More

Short and sweet this is the third time I have visited this location. The rooms are enormous and very spacious. Everything was up to par and clean except the hotel should upgrade to flat screen televisions for the rate they are at.One of my favorite features is the 14 feet high ceilings I know are in every room on the...

My best friend and I stayed one night in this hotel. The first and last night. In town for the Tide game/birthday weekend, and upon recommendation of my sister we chose this hotel. She said it wasn't the best but it was clean to her knowledge. Also, it was just close to the campus. On game weekend $89 for a... More

We stayed for the weekend for game day and flew in to visit our daughter. Unfortunately we were unable to stay at our usual spot due to late arrangements. This hotel was clean, we asked for the shower curtain to be changed (moldy). The front was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was nothing to speak of: a few pieces of... More

I have to come to Tuscaloosa once a month for classes. My classes always fall during game days where all the local hotels triple in price. I was really shocked to get this room at only a $30 more than normal. I was really surprised! The room was clean & staff was friendly. The breakfast was ok, but for the... More

The bathroom in this hotel was absolutely disgusting! There was mold/mildew all over. It smelled awful. There were bugs in the bathroom. If there were any other hotels that had rooms, I would have left immediately. When I spoke with the front desk about it, there was no apology, no sense of concern. I would rather stay in my car...
