The room was disgusting. Trash under the furniture, fingernails on the floor, mold in the bathroom. We arrived late and had no choice but to stay that night, but we cut our stay short and found a new hotel. Worst hotel experience in 25 years of travel.

I am not a big fan of Econo Lodge having had a few bad nights a their motels. However, I was coming into Tuscaloosa late, I was tired and the motel was right off of the highway so decided to give them another chance. It was nice for your basic motel. The room was clean with a flat screen tv.... More

We were visiting from Australia and found friendly staff and decent rooms at a fair price. Safe and secure with plenty to do nearby. Would stay here again and can recommend to others. P.s. cool town as well!!!

When you need a bed to rest your head whether it be for a football game or oriention this Econo Lodge is an average place. The bed was comfortable, the room quiet but I believe management could put in new carpet and update the bedspreads. Please buy housekeeping some Mr. Clean eraser sponges. The inside of the front door could... More

Was staying at the hotel because of work and service was terrible from the start. Dial-up wifi, cigarette burns in non-smoking room. Extremely rude housekeeper expecially the head of housekeeping (Ms. Jackie thanks)

Stayed her last week. I was tremendously impressed with this property. I realize it is an Economy motel but this place was great. The lady at the front desk was among the nicest motel/hotel employees I have ever met. Even though it is an older motel, they have maintained it nicely. My room was very clean. The bed was comfortable.... More

We stayed here for a football weekend because it was the only place still available. My first clue that it was not a great place was the woman who checked us in, who barely looked up when I walked in. I thought Southerners were friendly !! Our room smelled like mold, and we discovered black mold spots around the tub... More

After Capstone Hotel messed up my reservation, i found a om at this hotel that was surprisingly clean and comfortable. The hotel is old, but they are trying their best to keep it well painted and clean.

Stayed only one night, as we were traveling thru. It had one of the nicest front desk clerks I have dealt with. She was business like and professional with warm sincere greetings for a couple of weary travelers. The room was clean and nicely appointed for a "discount" price. We paid about $73 (included extended checkout) for the night and... More

The sheets were stained, BLUE and smelled! The bathroom was absolutely disgusting! Breakfast was pretty crappy- food didn't seem fresh at all! NOT a good place to stay if you have kids!!! Oh and better forget about swimming since the pool was closed and the trash was overflowing. Just a bad experience all around!
