Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Tuscaloosa
Ranked #9 of 35 Hotels in Tuscaloosa
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

I've stayed in several Tuscaloosa hotels and had a favorite, but I decided to try this one after a good experience with a Country inn & Suites in a different city. Glad I did! On a hill a couple of blocks off the interstate, it's quiet and comfortable. Great room, attractively furnished, and one of the best breakfasts I've had in this category of hotel. Friendly, efficient service, too. I will be back.

This is a typical Country Inn and Suites with all the usual facilities. Bed is comfortable, room decent size, staff friendly. BUT......the fire alarm went off at 11:45 PM and rang for almost 15 minutes. No staff provided any information about whether there was a fire in the hotel or what the guests should do.....especially after being wakend from a sound sleep. In the morning, the desk clerk said only it was a "cooking problem". This could have been a dangerous situation for the sleeping guests and the hotel staff on duty seemed totally incompetent to deal with it.

This was my fourth stay at the Country Inn & Suites in Tuscaloosa, as my daughter is a freshman at the University of Alabama and we have been travelling back and forth from NYC. I am never disappointed. The staff is always friendly and goes out of their way to assist you in any way they can. The rooms are extremely clean and the beds are very comfortable. My husband and I travel often and have stayed at many high end hotels. The Country Inn holds its own against these hotels because of their friendly responsive staff and the cleanliness of their rooms.

Me and my husband have moved from North Carolina and are on our way to Alaska. We have stayed in several hotels during this trip and this has been our favorite so far. I was a little worried at first since it wasn't a chain hotel, but I do not regret getting a room here.

This hotel has a great "home town feel" about it. It's in a good area, very quiet, and comfortable. It is not as updated as some hotels, but I would rather have safe, clean, and comfortable rather than a hotel that looks "updated" and "modern". The room is very large, which is great for us since we have so much luggage and our 70 pound dog.

What I really love about Country Inn is that it is SIMPLE. The staff does not over complicate anything. Plus, they are very friendly and helpful. I also want to add that the sheets are very soft. Last night we stayed at a Sleep Inn hotel and slept with rough sheets... but the ones at Country Inn are fantastic.

If you're not picky about the way a place looks but you do want a safe, comfortable, good priced, clean, helpful, and quiet night, stay at Country Inn.

My family and I stayed here two nights while visiting family. We arrived in town early and were greeted by a very friendly staff. They even went out of their way to let us check in early. The front "porch" and lobby were both comfortable and homey. There was always coffee available and even a lending library (books). The room smelled fresh and was very clean. The beds were comfortable and I slept very well. The pool area was clean and well maintained. The free breakfast included everything from waffles, eggs, and hash browns to the standard cereals, pastries, toast, and fresh fruit. The location was convenient to restaurants and shopping without being in the middle of it all. We were very satisfied with our stay and will definitely return.

Super comfy beds. Awesome staff. Love the fridge & microwave in our rooms. Breakfast variety good. We had 10 rooms for a destination wedding, and the staff made us feel like we were right at home. The cookies were warm (Otis Spunkmeyer-YUM) and rocking chairs on the front porch inviting. Great southern hospitality. Thank you, thank you, thank you... (Wish there was brighter lights in the room, especially at the table. My room was even darker than most of the other rooms.) Sam's Club and Wal-mart right around the corner for anything left at home.

Room Tip: I was on the 3rd floor. Loved the quiet there. But the elevator was a slow mover. Hey, isn't tha...
