Very beautiful property. Rooms were very well decorated and clean. Comfy beds and pillows. Disappointed that we did mot have the use of a pool, you had to be a member of the Yacht club. Georgeous grounds for strolling.

Stayed here for a wedding. It's gorgeous and would make an excellent kid free weekend away. However, the stairs overlooking the lobby completely freaked me out because my son could easily fit between the rails! We had multiple key issues and when I sat on the bench in our room to put my shoes on, the legs came off, dropping... More

We loved the location. Our room was clean, but dated. Parking lot filled with potholes and not maintained. Rates seem to vary for graduation weekend as our party all had different rates. We were told that we could not bring in our own wine or beer, but we noticed others on the patio with coolers and plastic cups apparently enjoying... More

Probably great in the early eighties, this potential gem needs lots of work. Bathroom was very nice and completely renovated but that appears to be where they stopped. Walls are paper thin and parking lot is full of pot holes. We were able to clearly hear conversations next door, even able to hear the opening of a bottle of medicine,... More

I have stayed multiple times at the Yellowhammer, now Jack Warner Inn. The recent changes are nothing shy of perfection. A true active museum setting with the comforts of home. Most of the time it has been game day weekends and the prices are far cheaper than the cheapest "dive" in Tuscaloosa the way they gouge on those weekends. The... More

For the price of this hotel it is a complete disappointment. About 15 minutes from the university, it is a easy ride out to the hotel. The rooms are dark (very little light) and an old appearance. In our particular room the air was set on 66 and it would never cool down, just blew humid air the entire time.... More

Booked here for a ballgame weekend, so it was $300 per night. I don't know what the regular rates are, as they are not available online. First, the setting is beautiful - kind of like a lodge set back in the woods. It is an older hotel that has been nicely renovated. Breakfast is included, which consists of bacon, biscuits,... More

The facilities at the Yellowhammer Inn were perfect for our needs, and the staff could not have been any kinder or more accommodating! The general manager, both desk clerks, and every other staff member we dealt with were amazing: competent, considerate, and efficient! The Yellowhammer Inn is a treasure, and we will definitely be back!

On our recent trip to Tuscaloosa, Alabama we booked accommodations at the Yellowhammer Inn. This was our first visit to the Inn and although it had been highly recommended it far exceeded our expectations. The general manager, Mr. Cunningham went out of its way to inform us of the history and fine facilities at the complex. The staff and quality... More

We were greeted with gracious hospitality by a fantastic staff, each one very helpful and friendly, especially Caleb, who not only made us feel welcome, but went the "extra mile" . He helped with wedding transports and served as a very informative tour guide to the gorgeous "Jack Warner mansion". Our rooms were clean, elegant and comfortable. Yellowhammer is a... More
