I was in town for an Alabama home football game. I've come to realize how expensive rooms can be during home football weekends. I made a reservation at BW Catalina without hearing anything about it. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast included was much better than I was expecting. It... More

I was here for one night. My room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The manager was very friendly when he checked me in as was the lady who checked me out. I used the pool which was very clean. The breakfast was basic, but plentiful. Overall I was very pleased.

The place looked nice on outside. The gentleman that ck us in was nice. Pool was utilized. The room first smelled like a chlorine pool, but smell faded. Beds were fine and room was small. The female desk clerk was on her cell phone when greeted for breakfast. Both mornings we eat the cold breakfast. Good thing for the microwave!... More

Convenient location. Reasonable price, no frills. Decent breakfast. Very clean room. Those were the positive things. Negatives were that the air conditioner did not keep us cool. Another guest had same complaint. Beds were not comfortable aside from being newer. Very stiff and hard. Felt like we were sleeping on the floor. It's pillows were the hard thick little squares....

Best Western hotels, at least in the South, have traditionally been quite undesirable. I appreciate a good value, but, cleanliness and "niceness" are far more important to me than price. I gave this Best Western a try as a result of what appeared to be relatively recent renovations, and really good rates (less than $100 / night). I was VERY... More

I very much enjoyed my stay. I was in a power lifting contest so my rest was important before the contest.. The room was so comfortable [ I feel in love with the A/C and bed ] that i felt completely rested.. I won the contest so I know that the ability to relax helped

Booked into hotel on website. When we got to hotel - we were told that we got the last room which was a smokers room next to main road. As soon as we opened the door - the smell was terrible, noxious! Could not even stay for a minute because my asthma was set off and couldn't breathe. Told the... More

We regret that you had an unpleasant experience with our front desk agent. After reviewing your reservation information it is apparent that the fault in this case does not lie with the hotel. When reserving a hotel room through a third party website, it is critical to check your reservation confirmation to ensure proper room assignment. Unfortunately, you reserved a... More

Nice property to stay at if you are in the tuscaloosa area. All of the rooms are on the ground level which eliminates the noise above, and the room was very clean. In addition, the price was very reasonable, and we liked the location with several options for dining in the area. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here many years ago, found the place quaint. Now with the remodeling, we were impressed and plan to return next family reunion. Clean, comfortable. We had a king bed room with a small refrigerator and microwave. Air conditioner kept the room comfortable. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was adequate. Only drawback was only 2 tables in... More
