“Bama Football Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

A great staff to be of any service one would need or want. The room are clean and the overall accommodations are great. The staff makes you feel welcome and treat you as if family. I would recommed this hotel for it's location and ease to get to and from Bryant Denny Stadium.

Friends, We have visited Tuscaloosa for the past 6 yrs and each stay we always reserved our rooms at LQ. Rooms are clean and fresh, beds are comfortable with excellent mattress quality, but most of all the establishment cares about you and your guest and goes the extrra mile to insure your room is A#1 and along with the free breakfast this is just about the most friendly that we have ever stayed at and we travel extensivley We applaud Ms Shirley on her efforts to make sure your stay is the best possible..Thanks again LQ staff John W Anlage

As a business traveler I normally stay at La Quinta. This trip was for pleasure to see an Alabama football game and my wife was with me. This is an old hotel but the room was clean and the desk staff very friendly. They especially took time to help us get shuttle service to the game. Slightly overpriced La Quinta due to its age. The best tip I got and used was ask to stay on the side away from the highway when booking.

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff was very courteous and helpful. I stayed in two different rooms during my stay due to having to work an extra day and having already checked out early that morning. When I went back to check in for another night, I was checked in and in my new room, less than 10 minutes. It is an older hotel, don't let that distract you. It was clean, neat, smelled clean, nice beds that slept nice, 30 flat screen HD TV and very economical. Nice location. No complaints at all.

I am a loyal La Quinta Returns member.

The good news - The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. This completes the positive comment section.

The bad news – There are only 5 vague pictures of this hotel on the official website for a reason. They do not want you to know how shockingly old and dilapidated this hotel really is. First, the hotel is an old style motor lodge with room access from the outside. So, safety is a concern. Second, after opening the room door you are greeted with an awful odor that hits you like a sledge hammer. The best way to describe it is “sweetly perfumed decay”. It’s apparent that an attempt has been made to hide the mildew smell that exists in the carpets and walls. Third, there are no amenities here folks. No microwave, fridge, fitness facility, etc. Additionally, you can easily link to their free wireless but the internet connectivity was out 75% of the time.

The really bad news- They price gauge for all University of Alabama home football games. To be fair most Tuscaloosa hotels do, but $245.00 a night for this place??? Come on!

Stay somewhere else people.

My husband, our two cats, and I syayed here just one night as we moved across the country. I used my La Quinta rewards points and this place only cost 4,000 or 6,000 points.

We arrived after midnight and were greated by the front desk clerk. She helped me find the nearest Wal-Mart which was only a few minutes away. There were several restaurants and shopping locations nearby, including a waffle house and grocery store which were both in walking distance.

The room featured two queen/full beds, a TV, small closet with luggage stand, hangers, and laundry bag, a desk/small dining table, alarm clock, mini-fridge, shampoo and soap, instant coffee maker, and a shower and toilet in a separate room from the sink. Best of all, there was complimentary breakfast and up to two pets can stay for FREE!

Breakfast included blueberry and banana nut pre-packaged muffins, hard-boiled eggs, make-your-own waffles, toast, cereal, coffee, and apple and orange juice. There was plenty of seating for breakfast and you could watch the news while eating.

The hotel is definitely older, includes exterior entraces (you just walk up to your hotel room door from the outside, there are no interior hallways) and does not have any fancy decor, but it served the purpose we needed. There was room to park our U-Haul truck.
