Located just 3 miles from my son's apartment and the UA campus, this hotel was a good choice for us. The manager James (who also works the front desk), was very nice. He was knowledgeable about the surrounding area and restaurants (unique to Tuscaloosa). We enjoyed talking to him and getting advise on the area. The maintenance man was friendly and helped us enter our room when we were not doing the key card correctly. He also spoke to us when we were leaving and asked us about some suitcase keys that he found outside our room door. The room was nice and clean. We did not get up in time for breakfast however had coffee on the way out. James called us by name upon departure and treated us with the utmost respect. Also the hotel is located in front of a Sam's/Wal-Mart combo which is walking distance. Very convenient if needed. There are many hotels in Tuscaloosa. For the price, staff and location, I would stay here again.
