“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We were relocating to Tuscaloosa with short notice and would need an hotel with an option for extended stay. The hotel manager Sheree was very prompt with her assistance before we even got there & was great in accommodating our needs. All of the staff their is friendly and helpful as well. Housekeeping is efficient & keep the rooms very clean. This is a great hotel & I would recommend it to everyone.

This is an excellent place to stay! The rooms are neat and clean; very comfortable. The staff is superb; very friendly and most helpful. I was very pleased and definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a comfortable night's stay during travel, for pleasure or business. It does feel like home, in the best way possible. I want to give a "High five" to Dareious who worked the front desk during both of my recent stays. He is so personable, professional and courteous. He always greets you with a huge smile and a kindly manner. He not only took care of my room, but showed such courtesy and kindness to everyone. He makes a huge impact and a true difference. Mary, the manager, does an awesome job and is super sweet. I will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: As for a room upstairs, if you desire absolute quiet, as I did. So restful!

Stayed one night while en route to Pennsylvania. Good location for travelers. No problems to report. Many thanks to the front desk clerk on duty at 5 am August 1. We needed ice for our cooler and there were no ice machines since there were full size refrigerators in the rooms, but they didn't generate enough ice in one night. The front desk clerk gave us ice from his fridge. He apologized that it was all lumped together, but it was perfect for our cooler and made the start of our day a good one.

Thank you so much for your great review! Being an extended stay hotel, we have ice makers in all of our rooms, but as you mentioned it may not have made enough to fill an entire cooler overnight, so I am quite glad to hear that our front desk team was able to help. When you are traveling back through our area, we certainly hope you will once again choose our hotel. Thank you again for sharing your positive feedback with others.

The girl who checked us in was super helpful and informative. She told us about this awesome local place to get Greek food. Everyone we met there were very kind! They made me feel right at home! Our room rocked! It had a full size kitchen and a DVD player. They even upgraded me when I got there so the room had a living room and a separate bed room each with their own TV (which worked out great since my wife and I like to watch different shows).
