It's a great place to stay. Very welcoming and helpful. Thank you for another nice stay. Beds were very comfortable and breakfast were full of choices. Great location if you are heading to the university.

Great service all 3 nights we were there.
Very friendly/helpful and accomodating to all guests.

Small rooms, but nice and clean. Stayed on 2nd floor. No bad smells anywhere in hotel.
Breakfast was good, clean. Had coffee avail all day. Cookies/milk at night which
was a big hit seeing all the people down in the lobby.

A tad bit pricy, but it's a nice place to stay and felt safe the whole time.
Very close to UA campus which was nice.

Very nice accommodations; fast internet; good hot breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location - even as close as it was to the main road in Tuscaloosa - McFarland Ave - was quiet. But - compared to other Hampton's we've stayed in - this one had the smallest rooms.

We arrived too early and had no issues to check in before 3pm. Pool was clean and we were offered clean pool towels. Room was huge and it smell like freshly painted. Sheets were clean and new. We had cookies and milk for dinner, unlimited coffee, tea and hot cocoa. Breakfast was great. We are very happy with out stay at this property.

Anyone who had read my reviews may have noticed I've spent a lot of time in Tuscaloosa the past six months. We finally were able to stay at the Hamption Inn that is just blocks away from the UA campus. It is definitely a go to if you are going to anything at Bama (and can't get into the Capstone Hotel right on campus).

It's not really walkable, but just minutes away. It's set off the road a bit, which, in my opinion, made it more quiet than other places I've stayed in Tuscaloosa. The hotel is lovely inside - rooms spacious and clean, staff attentive. And of course Alabama/Crimson Tide/Elephant decor abounds. Cookies in the evening and a decent breakfast (not anything made to order, but better than continental). Coffee and tea and apples available 24/7.

And so convenient to campus. Yes, the price is higher than some other places (though less than the Hilton Garden Inn several miles away). But my experience in Tuscaloosa is that you definitely get what you pay for. And know that for football weekends, the price is crazy high - supply and demand hard at work.

This hotel fills up fast given it's proximity to campus - so know that you will not likely have any luck with last minute reservations. But book it when you can - definitely my most comfortable stay over the past six months!

We had a wonderful time her. We stayed for two days. At first they gave me a downstair room next to the elevator. I asked the front desk if I could change it and no questions asked, they were so nice and change me right away. Went to my son orientation. The hotel is very close to the University. The front desk is very friendly and helpful. LOVED the cookies at night.

Pretty good place to stay, well worth using my points. But the cost of the rooms is way to high. We like the location, but the price is too high for how nice the facility is. It is just average for the cost.
