Limited service was very good. Reception was vey helpful. Hotel was bare bones- no pool, small towels. We were there on bid day/move-in weekend when everything is sold out and it worked. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Easy access to campus.

He had a terrible experience at this Howard Johnson. First of all, they had road construction going on in front of the hotel and the only way to get in the parking lot was to go through the parking lot of the "Western Hotel" behind the Howard Johnson. This in itself was a scary site. I felt very unsecure even... More

We hadn't stay in a Howard Johnson for years and it was the nicest motel we stayed in while on our trip. Staff was friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. A nice breakfast and a very reasonable rate. When back that way we will stay at it again.

I don't mind staying in a low budget place - I can do without the amenities if the place is clean. There was trash in the areas where there was grass (weeds) which happened to be about 8-10 inches tall. The place smelled in every area I passed through. I will say the young woman at the reception was very... More

When I was driving through Alabama, I saw a billboard for hotel that looked pleasant. I stopped by and they had no rooms at the advertised price--all rooms were twice what the billboard stated. Since I don't like the Old Bait and Switch, I decided to continue down the road. Tuscaloosa was not too much farther, so I looked at... More
