Reviewed May 22, 2011

" Myself & fellow Officers were sent to assist in tornado recovery efforts. Our stay @ Microtel was EXCELLENT!. The staff was very accmmodating in spite of the terrible time they were going through. the room was very clean & comfortable. A special thanks to Julie Mosley (General Manager) in going out of her way to see our needs were met, and handling all the billing details. Thanks, SEI Capt. Don Hyde

There were fresh cookies and snacks all the time Hotel cleanliness was excellent

The room was exceedingly nice, it had a large couch, microwave, and refrigerator. flat screen TV ironing board and iron. Bathroom was very clean with more than enough towels. Water pressure was excellent. No mold was evident anywhere, shower curtain was on curved bar so doesn't encroach into shower, or leave a huge puddle. There was a sitting couch by the window,

Bed comfort was very high, sheets were clean, quilt was high density cloth. Air conditioner in room was excellent.

If you have to stay in Tuscaloosa than stay at this place it will surpass your expectation

Room Tip: Call Julie she is just the best

We (School Group) were staying the day the Tornado touched down in Tuscaloosa. The staff of this hotel was very well prepared and took the safety of the customers to an entire new leve. Cynthia was great and hope that she and her family were spared the destruction of the tormado.

Room Tip: All the rooms were outstanding

The hotel was very clean, quiet and accommodating. The "continental breakfast' was awful! Great location if you are going to the University of Alabama. Plenty of restaurants, stores, etc. very close by. However, when we booked, we did so through Travelocity. Therefore, our room had to be prepaid. When we arrived, the front desk clerk asked for a credit card which I gave her. When we left, she handed me a receipt which to me looked like she charged me. I said "I already paid through Travelocity". She said "I didn't charge you again". About an hour later, I called me credit card company and sure as heck, she did charge me again. Took several weeks to straighten it out. Keep an eye on your receipt!!

Room Tip: Get a room AWAY from the elevator and ice machine!

The Tuscaloosa Microtel handled our large party (34) with great ease. The hotel is very clean. The staff is knowledgable, helpful, and friendly. And the rooms are very nice with comfortable amenities and comfortable beds. The breakfast is very diverse, with lots of simple choices for anyone's taste. It's a nice touch that they have cookies provided all day for guests. The location is great with Super Target within along with Chipotle, Five Guys, and a fun yogurt place all within walking distance. I would highly recommend this hotel if your travels bring you to Tuscaloosa.

The location is perfect, next to Target/Home Depot and across the street from Midtown Village Shopping and the mall. More important, just a couple of minutes (less than 5) from the campus of The University of Alabama. GREAT price!

There is free WiFi throughout the hotel. Flat screen TV, with movies. Free local telephone calls. There is one computer with a printer in the lobby if you need one.

I looked at both the two queen bed room and the suite, and although both are nice, I went with the suite since I would be spending a lot of time there on this trip. The suite has one bed; a small sleeper sofa; small kitchen area with sink, microwave, refrig., coffee maker. I don't recall if the other rooms have the kitchen area as well. The room did not have a table, but instead had two sections similar to a bar, one lower and one higher (more the eating area), but there is plenty of work area if you need to work. There is also a window seat with cushions, which is a nice place to read.

The hotel is clean and appears new and has a meeting room and an exercise room.

There is a breakfast offered, nothing fancy, simple but free consisting of fruit, pastries, breakfast bars, cereals, coffee, milk, and juice. Coffee is available 24 hrs. In the afternoon after 2:00 PM they offer free cookies (I have to warn you, it is hard to resist the smell of the cookies throughout the first floor.)

The staff is great, very helpful and friendly. I was in need of a late checkout, and they were happy to accommodate.

The beds were fine, not the best I have every slept on, but far, FAR from the worst, with flat pillows.

Best place I have stayed in Tuscaloosa, would highly recommend, and WILL be staying here again!

Room was clean, beds were comfortable, kids slept well, shower was nice. TV and fridge were good. You could hear some traffic from the Parkway, but it was ok dB wise.

If the one out in Cottondale is this nice, I will stay there next time as the price was $25 cheaper a night... however I think the price was good for as nice as the room was for this location. Would definitly stay here again.

My only complaint is these people should get a new handy man, the blasted toilet rocked and it appeared that the low IQ handy man tried to glue it to the floor with 10 tubes of caulk. My suggestion to him is to go over to the Home Depot (next door), pick up some composite shims, a new wax ring... and ONE tube of caulk. Call me if you need help figuring out to do with the items on the grocery list.
