I guess unless you get pretty good notification from your kids about college events, you're going to have a hard booking a room in Tuscaloosa. As usual, there were several UA events going on this weekend so it was a challenge finding a suitable hotel. I am personally not a fan of Motels, I prefer inside access to our room... More

We usually don't stay at BW, but I am glad we did. It was very nice and clean, shiny clean. The room was nice, it was quiet. The cost was more than I expected though. Would stay again if we are traveling through.

The term "motor inn" brings back my childhood and family vacations in the 50's and 60's. This was not the no-frills "motor inn" of my childhood. What a nice property! Very nice room, excellent bed and pillows, well-functioning shower, and a very nice breakfast with really good (Douwe Egberts) coffee. I was impressed from check-in to check-out. The enthusiastic greeting... More

My daughter and I were on a tour of the Univ of Alabama and were trying to keep the trip as affordable as possible. The hotel is a short drive to the University. Clean and comfortable. Everyone working the front desk was pleasant and helpful. We had issues with the computers in the business center, trying to get our boarding... More

We stayed for two nights and were very pleased with the hotel. It is located behind the O'Charleys and is a little difficult to see. The intersection is also very busy trying to get into and out of the hotel. The room was very nice as it looks like it had been renovated not too long ago. The bed was... More

The beds were only doubles, but super comfortable. Room was clean and neat. Breakfast was great!! Good coffee and I really loved the fact the sausage was completely cooked. Great selection of juices to choose from.

Checked online for values in this area. Most were overpriced for the brand of hotel, I haven't stayed in a Best Western in a few years so I gave it a try. The lady at check in was funny, polite, knowledgable with the area and very helpful. Great experience. Good value.

Large, well appointed rooms, very comfortable beds. Bathroom could be larger but was adeqate. Adequate to good breakfast. Friendly staff throughout, front-desk was helpful but could be more efficient. Overall, much better than many competitors in this price range.

I wanted a hotel with an indoor pool, this one had an outdoor pool but that was my fault for not reading correctly. (I only include this because I thought I read it was an indoor pool from one of the other reviews on this site) The room was great very spacious, clean and comfortable.
