Only stayed overnight but was pleasantly surprised. Pet friendly, clean rooms, nice pool and the most amazing breakfast. They had everything that you would find on any restaurant menu. Front desk personnel, evening and morning were very, very pleasant and helpful. Being August they weren't very busy but I would gladly stay there on any football weekend. Easy access from... More

A safe, quiet, clean place to stay in Tuscaloosa. Convenient location especially when traveling with pets and counting your pennies! All the staff that I interacted with were professional and friendly. The rooms appear clean, the HVAC works well, and the shower pressure is perfect.

My two small kids and I drove from NC to El Paso TX to visit family and drove home. We caught this Best Western on the last leg home. I didn't realize that University of AL was like right there and just about all the hotels in the area were booked up because of families bring their students to college... More

We do get crowded the first 2 weeks of August with student move-in, and we are so sorry that the only room we had to offer was a smoking one! We are so happy that in spite of that, you still gave us an excellent review. Helpful staff, great breakfast, comfortable stay--you can always count on us to deliver those... More

This is probably one of the nicest motels I've ever stayed in. If you're looking for a great place that is very clean, with great service, at a great price, don't overlook this motel. We stayed there during move-in weekend at UA and rebooked for family weekend next month. I highly recommend!!

The hotel was very clean and nice. They had a warm breakfast and a nice pool. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The only thing that I didn't like was the window air conditioner that had to be on to keep cool and it was very noisy. There was no thermostat so it basically had to be on all... More

This Best Western on McFarland Blvd is all about the University of Alabama. They have UA decor everywhere and really cater to the students and their families.

Room is tastefully decorated and clean. However, bear in mind this is an older "motor inn" style hotel. The AC is a wall/window type unit and is very dated- my room was nice and cool but quite damp, so I suspect it was malfunctioning. I don't have allergies or issues with mold so this wasn't that big of a deal... More
