We stayed here for four nights this past week. We were visiting the University of Alabama. I have to say that this hotel is fabulous! The staff are absolutely amazing, from the housekeeperes to the front desk. I had three kids with me and they could not have been nicer. We are not from the area, knew nothing about it.... More

I stayed at the Fairfield Inn by Marriott Tuscaloosa this past weekend July 3-6, 2014. I was in Tuscaloosa for a family reunion. The hotel is in a convenient location. Restaurants, shopping & an IMAX movie theatre are close by. The hotel overall was good. The staff was professional and friendly. The free breakfast was your standard breakfast fare from... More

When I rolled into the lobby around 10:30 p.m., I was frazzled. The day had started in Houston with four new tires necessitated by a massive pile of glass on the freeway, and it got worse, with a cracked windshield in Louisiana and a hailstorm in Mississippi that forced me to stop 100 miles short of the Gadsden Fairfield. I... More

No offense to cheerleaders directly, but the ones that stayed here were noisy and ran the halls until 10. Not a hotel issue really, but maybe they should have some guidelines for school groups. Otherwise, the room is nice enough. Nothing fancy. Bed and pillows comfy. Air works really well. Fridge is mediocre even after adjusting the temp. Free wifi.... More

I thought the hotel was very clean overall. The room decor seemed a bit outdated but nice. The pool a saline pool so no bad chlorine smell. Liked that alot. The workout room was very small but the lobby was charming!! Very nice stay.

We have stayed at this hotel before and when I walked in, I remembered that it has the smallest elevator ever! They have upgraded the carpet in the hallways. But the lighting is so dark, so it makes you wonder what they are trying to hide. Also, EVERY member of staff is CONSTANTLY asking you if your room is ok,... More

When we arrived with our big load a gentleman and gal (Regina) helped us with the doors. Nice to be welcomed. I can't remember the young man's name, but he was super friendly and helpful. Our room was good and clean. We stayed two days and the service was exceptional. Regina was especially helpful and friendly! I would give service... More

Marriott now charges 20,000 Reward points to stay at Fairfield Inn, so we decided to pay $130 cash for the room instead to the Reward equivalent of $700 in points. It was a clean hotel with a nice breakfast and very convenient to our work in Tuscaloosa but our room was on the front of the hotel next to an... More

Besides being a great deal as we visited U of Alabama, the staff was very nice and helpful. The room was very clean. In running into many of the staff around the hotel, we could not say a bad thing about anyone. The overnight manager was extremely kind and helpful to us, as it was our first time in the... More

We were just traveling through and wanted convenience to the highway and good Marriott experience. First, the staff was outstanding. Efficient, very friendly, and attentive - more like what you experience at a more upscale brand. Second, the room was clean and well layed out. I didn't like the TV being bolted to the desktop, but the room, while very... More
