We stayed at the Hampton Inn Tuscaloosa-East for one night on our way to Florida. Having lived in Tuscaloosa fifteen years earlier, I had a pretty good idea of where the hotel was located and what to expect from the area. Overall, the hotel met my expectations.
The hotel is a bit out of the way for activities in Tuscaloosa, located near a couple of truck stops a few miles to the east of the main part of town. If you're wanting to explore Tuscaloosa, be prepared to spend some time in the car to reach your destination. However, it is conveniently located off I-20/59 and would be a great stopping spot for people passing through the area. As an added bonus, the room rates tended to be lower than the hotels closer to town.
This is an older Hampton Inn and, as such, doesn't have all the bells and whistles of newer Hampton properties. However, the common areas of the hotel have been renovated and are quite nice. While the food was a typical Hampton breakfast, we did enjoy relaxing in the breakfast area.
Our room was spacious and clean, though it didn't look as if it had been renovated. Since we were traveling with an infant, we requested a crib for the night. What we got was a useable pack-n-play without any sheets to fit. It worked for the night, but I'd suggest to any traveling parents that they bring their own fitted sheets for safety.
Overall, this hotel worked for us and our needs. It allowed us to get a good night's sleep and briefly visit Tuscaloosa without breaking the bank.
