“Excellent choice again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We stayed here again for the college orientation. The staff is very pleasant. The hotel is very easy to find if you just head down 82 W until you see the hotel off to your right then take next exit to the right. The best part is the easy accessibility to the University of Alabama. Take the back road and you are there.
The breakfast had different things each day we were there and the cookies at night are nice and hot. My kids love the hot chocolate and the pool with the big Alabama tubes.
We stay here whenever we are in town and we have not been disappointed.

I pulled off the interstate after seeing a billboard advertising your Hampton Inn, and I got a room for me, my daughter, and two of her friends. We had just travelled about half way to our destination, and we were feeling very tired. We left the next morning feeling refreshed and ready to carry on with our trip. Our short stay was everything we needed which was a welcoming and comfortable environment that was clean and quiet as well. And all of this for a decent price! This is why I always stay with Hampton Inn!

Clean. Quiet. Great location. Comfortable beds! Exceptional.service! Good selections for breakfast. One suggestion...get bravo or E channel. This will definitely be my hotel of choice when in the area.

enjoyed the location although in town, the way the hotel is located off the road makes it seem remote. It's a little difficult to find your way out and back onto the main road ways but ask the front desk for the handy maps and you're on your way.

This hotel is always great. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is a very clean hotel and most of the rooms are newly remodled. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast bar is loaded and the attendant is very friendly. When I come to Tuscaloosa I stay here

Rooms have just about everything one needs--including 4 lamps with bulbs providing enough light to see and by which to read. AC works perfectly, tho' could be a bit quieter. Only quibble: not enough drawers for clothing, but lots of extra hangers provided. Staff friendly, efficient, helpful. Baumhower's restaurant next door has excellent fresh food. Hotel breakfast very good--no cooked to order eggs, but otherwise completely satisfactory. Cookies and milk in the evenings creative lagniappe. Highly recommended.

When given the chance we choose Hampton Inn when we travel, particularly this one in Tuscaloosa. It's close to the Bama campus, and the service is always terrific. Just wish the hotel was larger so we could get rooms more often.
