“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

After driving through the half the USA, it was great to find such a good hotel. Nice facilities, good rooms, clean bathrooms, nice sheets. Best value I could find from Texas to DC area. I highky recommend this hotel for whatever purpose.

Room Tip: None I can remember...

We stayed overnight for a UA visit. It is close to the university, very clean and in a very quiet location.
The breakfast was great and offered a variety of delicious items.
The rooms are large and nicely furnished.


We will return

I stay here everytime I go to Tuscaloosa- two kids at Alabama. Easy to access, clean comfortable rooms, adequate free breakfast. Nice touch of a personalized snack bag in your room if you are a rewards member. Great bang for the buck.

The Wingate by Wyndahm in Tuscaloosa, AL is a comfortable lodging choice when traveling to or through Tuscaloosa. While the list price of the WW is relatively over-priced for the Tuscaloosa market (pre-post football season) a savvy traveler can pick-up a bargain by bidding on Priceline (e.g., $67 winning bid as compared to list price of $103).

The room was spacious and well-appointed offering a wood plank floor (Carlisle type). This aesthetically appealing flooring and decor makes for a fresh clean look and feel as compared to the typical well-worn carpet that covers most hotels, regardless of the quality of hotel. The bedding was firm with crisp sheets and plenty of pillows that should suit any sleeper's preference. The bathroom was clean and well lit and the WW choice of soaps and shampoos were akin to some upscale brand hotels. Add the free in-room wifi that offered a good band width speed and you have a room that you can settle into for work or leisure.

There was one problem with the room and that was a leaky air-conditioning unit. The AC dripped water throughout the night which left a one-inch deep puddle on the wood plank floor. I Instead of contacting the front desk immediately, a few towels took care of the problem and the management was informed the next morning. A recommendation would be to replace the window AC unit with a central air system. There's no doubt that the hot Alabama days have taken a toll on the existing AC unit leading to the water condensation that became a water fall.

The WW offered a hot breakfast that definitely outshined many of the continental style morning meals served by some hotel brands. The pool and hot tub areas were relatively well-maintained. I do recommend more comfortable lounge chairs and upright chairs to replace the somewhat cheap and hard chairs that surround the pool. The fitness room is by no means adequate for this facility. Additional cardio and weight equipment in a larger room would be a welcome addition.

All in all the Wingate by Wyndham Tuscaloosa, AL is a very good option for a few nights when traveling along I20. I will certainly make plans on booking this property again as I travel I-20 east and west in the future.

While the property sits conveniently off of I20 it is relatively removed from most of the restaurants and entertainment venues. That said, a short 4-7 mile drive will place you in the center of the Tuscaloosa action (as it is).

Room Tip: Book on Priceline to save on this property.

Thanks so much for the time you took in writing such detailed feedback on your stay with us!
High Humidity has played havoc with our A/C units as of late, and they have indeed "sweat" more than normal. We apologize for any inconvenience that this caused during your stay.

Priceline can be a great way for guests to get to know us, and we encourage all guests to book thru whichever distribution channell is right for them. Buyer beware when using a 3rd Party
"Opaque" Travel Agencies, as room type is not guranteed and these reservations are non-cancellable. Calling us directly for reservations and once you have been qualified you might find our negotiated corporate rates are better than retail as well. Direct Reservations also qualify for Wyndham Rewards points where wholesale reservations do not. Food for thought.

We appreciate your input as to our fitness center and pool and will review these requests when next years Capital Expense budget is discussed. Again thanks so much for the great detail, it helps us to be the best hotel we can be!

We've stayed here a couple of times for school-related events for UA. It's a great location, quiet, yet easy access from the Interstate and convenient to school even though it's a little outside of town. The front desk staff is welcoming and knowledgeable and the rooms and the bathroom are a good size, clean and up-to-date. The beds are amazingly comfortable, what a great night's sleep!

The Wingate has complimentary wifi and hot breakfast. The food is good, more than the usual bread and donuts fare at some places. There's a business center, an outdoor pool, a fitness center and a hot tub that we haven't tried yet, but they all look clean and welcoming.

This is a great place to stay at a great price, we look forward to staying here whenever we're in Tuscaloosa.

Thanks so much for your candid response.
Alas, we wish we could be closer to the University, but feel taht we offer a great value in lieu of not being able to throw a stone at Bryant-Denny.
We hope that you will return for future visits and consider us when comparing accomodations which might be closer to Campus.

Thanks Again.....and

ROLL TIDE!!!

Driving cross-country with family on a vacation this month and needed a good place to stay in Alabama. We decided to bypass Birmingham and stay in Tuscaloosa. Although I have never stayed with them before, the Wingate had terrific rates and good reviews, so we chose them and booked the visit. The hotel was easy to find and the staff was most helpful and polite. Check in was flawless and our room was just as advertised, clean, spacious, and well appointed. The beds were CLEAN and heavenly soft. Probably the best night of sleep on my entire vacation. The bathrooms were well finished with granite on the vanity and in the shower. Very nice room at an excellent price. If I'm ever passing through central Alabama again, I won't hesitate to stay here again. I have no problem recommending this hotel to fellow travelers. You won't be disappointed!
