“Great Hotel, Great Rooms, Kind Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The hotel staff were really kind and friendly. They even called once we got to our room to see how we liked our room and if we needed anything.The rooms were very clean even had a kitchen in them. This was useful because we stayed for five days. I will definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: The fourth floor is very quiet.

This hotel always smelled so clean and fresh. I have never stayed in a hotel that smelled so good. The service was excellent. The staff were all so kind. The rooms and lobby were beautiful. From now on, when I come to Tuscaloosa, this is where I want to stay!

We went to out niece's graduation from University of Alabama in December 2012. . We liked having a kitchen to cook in and all the comforts of home. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.We wanted to stay there again in May, but the hotel is so popular, we could get the 7 rooms we needed. Maybe next time!

Room Tip: 2nd floor is good.

I loved staying at this hotel. The staff was warm, friendly, and welcoming. The room was great! I loved that not only did I have a kitchen in my room but it was also fully equipped with pots, pans, and everything I could need. Having all my needs meet made me feel more like I was home than at a hotel. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone needing to stay in the Tuscaloosa area.

Amazing family-like caring by the staff. Mrs Cheree, ms Elizabeth, ms mary Baxter, ms Kim, Zach,
Adam, and mike all are amazingly helpful accommodating and warm.
Location is wry close to malls, and restaurants and movie theatre. I have lived there for months and the stay was so good that I never go to Hilton's or Mariott again. Great bang for buck
