Came back for Alabama Homecoming after a great stay last year. This place just keeps getting better. They have new beds and awesome TVs now. Still no wifi...but Brittany (the manager) told us they are about to get a full renovation that will include wifi. The staff is super helpful, even when you are locked out of your room at 2am. A few of them even remembered us from last year. Now that's service! I can't wait to see the changes when we return next year. Already booked our stay!

Room Tip: If you're coming for a football game, book months in advance! They sell out! Unlike other places...

I was in town for a week to visit my daughter, and stayed here for the first time. Although I arrived very late, James was so pleasant and wonderful to work with, and made sure I knew I could call him anytime if there was anything I needed. The room was clean and comfortable, and the bed was better than home! I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay in the area.

Room Tip: Non-smoking room/floor had no issues with odor that other reviewers have experienced.

The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable & the TVs are very nice. The man that worked at the front desk, James was really helpful and nice. He was very welcoming, I would recommend coming back to this hotel.

Was staying for football weekend and killed a roach right as we entered the room; we were moved to another room and saw no more roaches. The cigarette smoke was very heavy in the halls and in our room... One thin little towel per person??? And how about a blow dryer for goodness sakes? Would definitely not stay here again.

This hotel is great! The amenities were exactly what I wanted and all of the staff was helpful. James is an exceptional employee and a definite asset to the place. Whether it was 2 in the afternoon or 4 in the morning, he was but a phone call away. Even when I forgot my key card in the middle of the night, I was greeted with a smile when he had to come open my door. Value Place is forever on my place to stay when I visit Tuscaloosa!

This hotel is a very nice place to visit whether you're on business or a weekend getaway. The staff is polite and really make you feel at home. The night attendant James is such an AWESOME staff member regardless of what time you need him he's just a call away. I strongly recommend Value Place the next time you need a place to stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Value Place is an extended stay hotel that meets every life traveler’s need for affordable, clean and secure, temporary lodging with our remarkably low weekly rates, rigorous cleanliness standards, total commitment to your comfort, privacy and peace of mind, and our just-right simplicity. Whether you’re traveling on business, pleasure, relocation, or just looking for a temporary base camp on your life’s journey, Value Place is your place.Value Place is a much better place Before you decide to stay at Value Place, we want you to be prepared—prepared for a better guest experience. What that means to us is a truly affordable, incredibly clean, safer, simple, flexible experience. And this is more than just a nice idea—it’s the Value Place promise. So how do we do it? By combining all the convenience of a hotel and all the essentials of an apartment. We’re a hybrid—and that makes us better than a hotel, an apartment or any other short-term or long-term housing accommodations you’ll find. Think about it—no extras padded into our price, no hidden fees. No lease to sign, no utilities to set up. And that’s just for starters. Find out how we’re different and what to expect when you’re here. What to expect when you arrive After a brief room tour, you’ll register, pay for the week plus a refundable $100 deposit, and agree to our house rules—which basically come down to common-sense policies that protect the privacy and security of each and every guest. Value Place is a family-friendly place, and children 17 and under stay free. To maintain a consistent guest experience at all of our properties we do have a No Pet Policy, except for service animals. Then we’ll show you to your guest room. It’s that easy. What to expect in your room Although Value Place offers several room choices, the essential features stay the same. You can always count on a simple but fully furnished studio with a kitchen that includes a full size refrigerator and freezer, a microwave, a two-burner stovetop and plenty of cabinet space. You’ll also find two drinking cups, a trash bag, a roll of bathroom tissue and a bar of soap to get you started—because at Value Place, we figure you’d rather shop on your own terms than pay for extras you may not need. If you do want to take advantage of the additional amenities and services we offer—from kitchen cookware to high-speed Internet—they’re available anytime for your convenience for a minimal fee. There’s only one thing guests never seem to be completely prepared for—how astonishingly clean our rooms are. What to expect in and around our building All Value Place properties are newly constructed from the ground up and electronically locked 24/7. That means no one can access our interior-corridor entrances without a valid key card. (No exterior room doors here like at most discount hotels or extended stay motels.) Featuring at least eight cameras and a very well lit parking lot, we keep your safety in and out of the building in mind. All public areas are cleaned daily—including our well-lit parking lot. Beyond our commitment to cleanliness and safety, we also offer vending machines and an onsite laundry room for your convenience. What to expect from our team You won’t find a friendlier team anywhere. Our helpful staff—from Studio Attendants to the Property Manager—will make sure your guest experience is a positive one, whether you need something for your room or directions to the closest car repair shop. At Value Place, you can expect courteous treatment from professionals who are committed to maintaining guest privacy and peace of mind. In fact, some team members live onsite to uphold our rigorous cleaning and safety standards. What to expect at every Value Place When it comes to Value Place, you don’t have to compete with anyone for that perfect apartment or hunt for the best hotel deal in town—we’re always the better choice. At your typical extended stay motel, discount hotel or other short-term housing solution, guests have to give up something that really matters. Not here. At Value Place you will always receive an affordable price in a Cleaner, Safer, Simpler, and Flexible property. We’re about living better through better value. And that makes us the smarter choice. Best of all? We promise a consistently positive guest experience at every Value Place you visit. Explore Value Place locations or make a reservation today. ... more   less
