Stopped at this Econo Lodge for an overnight stay. The lady at check-in was very pleasant and efficient. The room was nicely furnished and everything worked. The only thing I saw was the calking in the bathroom needed to be redone. I would stay here again.

We were desperate for a room during graduation weekend in Tuscaloosa, since the motel we had originally booked was nowhere we would ever stay it was so bad, and the man at the front desk was extremely helpful and managed to get us in for 3 nights that we needed. The price was high for an Econo Lodge, but all... More

Awful experience! Checked in past midnight and had to check-in through a small window. When we got to our room, our key cards did not work. We went back to the small window and got new cards. Again, these didn't work. The front desk employee came and opened up our door with a master key. Told us there was nothing... More

The only positive here is the friendly front desk person. The room has a couch in it that needs to be in the dump. The smoke alarm was hanging by the wires from the ceiling. Mini refrigerator needs to be defrosted. chair at desk has missing wheel. sheets are gray looking. If we had not been so tired we would... More

The room was disgusting. Trash under the furniture, fingernails on the floor, mold in the bathroom. We arrived late and had no choice but to stay that night, but we cut our stay short and found a new hotel. Worst hotel experience in 25 years of travel.

I am not a big fan of Econo Lodge having had a few bad nights a their motels. However, I was coming into Tuscaloosa late, I was tired and the motel was right off of the highway so decided to give them another chance. It was nice for your basic motel. The room was clean with a flat screen tv.... More

We were visiting from Australia and found friendly staff and decent rooms at a fair price. Safe and secure with plenty to do nearby. Would stay here again and can recommend to others. P.s. cool town as well!!!

When you need a bed to rest your head whether it be for a football game or oriention this Econo Lodge is an average place. The bed was comfortable, the room quiet but I believe management could put in new carpet and update the bedspreads. Please buy housekeeping some Mr. Clean eraser sponges. The inside of the front door could... More

Was staying at the hotel because of work and service was terrible from the start. Dial-up wifi, cigarette burns in non-smoking room. Extremely rude housekeeper expecially the head of housekeeping (Ms. Jackie thanks)

Stayed her last week. I was tremendously impressed with this property. I realize it is an Economy motel but this place was great. The lady at the front desk was among the nicest motel/hotel employees I have ever met. Even though it is an older motel, they have maintained it nicely. My room was very clean. The bed was comfortable.... More
