“Great stay”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

I have stayed in multiple hotels in Tuscaloosa on my business trips and this will be my go to hotel from now on. First, very convenient to the highway (I have to work south of Tuscaloosa) and this hotel is very convenient. The fitness center was nice and the staff was super friendly. The breakfast was excellent and was even ready at 5:45 am which was great since I had to leave to get to work by 6:15. Bonus, The Original Dreamland BBQ is less than a mile from this hotel.

We stayed recently during a campus visit. First impressions are very good - as you walk into the reception area, you feel as if you are entering a tastefully decorating living room. Everything is clean, bright and cheerful.

The beds were comfortable, bathroom was spotless. Front desk staff were very friendly, as was the lady in charge of breakfast.

Although the hotel is at the opposite end of the McFarland Blvd strip from the university, the location was excellent as there is less traffic and it is easy to get in and out. I'd say it's only about 10 minutes to anywhere on campus.

We would definitely stay here again.

This is a great hotel. The staff was friendly and the hotel was very clean. The price was good and affordable. Close to resturants and shopping areas. Very close to the highway. The free breakfast offered things I could eat (VEGAN). Fresh coffee and cookies. Even the elevator smelled fresh and clean. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Any room would be nice.

Stayed here overnight. Room available upon check-in, which was great after a long drive. Small exercise room, but adequate. Felt safe in the secure area. Complimentary breakfast offered choices. Close to a lot of restaurants with variety of cuisines. Close to interstate for easy access. Highly recommend.

Used points to get a discount on the rate. I love Carlson's program. This is a very clean hotel in a good location. The beds are comfortable. There was a good variety at breakfast . Highly recommended.

An above average Country Inn & Suites. Room was nice and very clean, the front desk people was very nice and check in and out were a breeze. The free breakfast was terrific. Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, eggs, fried potatoes, sausage etc. And it's hard to beat fresh coffee in the lobby 24/7 with free cookies.
