“The BEST !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

I just want say this place rocks. My husband and I are very impressed. We travel so much do to his job, and this place makes you feel right at home. All of the front desk staff are very pleasant. (Rakethia, Chris, Jay and the rest..). Rakeithia has some of the best customer service skills I have ever seen. She rocks!!! There is a full free breakfast every morning. Laundry on site and much more. The housekeeping girls are so friendly and will go above and beyond to help in anyway they can!!!! Vicky and all the girls are awesome. I absolutely love this place. The rooms are nice and big, AND very very clean. Thumbs up to Centerstone Inn....

My Mom and I were passing through on our way back home in Atlanta, Georgia when we discovered The Centerstone Inn, After a great Christmas with my brother, we decided to stay at the hotel for a few days passing through, Chris the General Manager is absolutely charming and I like him for his ability to keep a guest very happy, Jay just kept it real, and we all like that! My Mom liked him a lot for his kindness and ability to hold down a great conversation! On to Renee, whom tried to find me and Moma food after midnight and with no car it was a dead end! But not for long, I asked for a simple glass of milk and got the works! Sausage, Buttered Bread! Yogurt, wonderful muffins and all the juice and milk Moma and I needed, So guys and girls if your passing through, tired and need sleep or here on business, Call and book a room with The Centerstone Inn.

You will get a good and great rate, but most importantly you will have a friend in the staff at The Centerstone Inn,

This is a hotel that I feel larger cities need to have,;) thanks Renee for that Sausage stacked sandwich for an early breakfast!


Kind regards,

Lenny and Melody (Moma)

Marvelous review we all here at the Centerstone Inn Tuscaloosa are proud that we were able to accommodate you and your mother. Along with that we are thankful for the honesty in your review as all our staff members from room attendants, guest service sales, and management do have an ultimate mission to ensure that we will continue to provide outstanding customer service to all our guests.

The team were all glad to accommodate you and your family during the Christmas time as we did have many families stay with us this year. Brooke, Renee, Jay, and Rekeithia do a wonderful service to all our guests along with General Manager Chris Pearson is delighted with the review. We do have a HOT breakfast complimentary to our guests, Wi-Fi access (free), and are 100 % non-smoking hotel property.

At the hotel property we do have many tours, groups, families, sporting teams, and international travel come to the Centerstone Inn as the hotel is close by The University of Alabama, Mercedes Benz, Cobb Theatres, Cracker Barrell, and within 7 minute driving distance to Downtown Tuscaloosa.

Look forward to hosting you all again at the property and have a Happy New Year!

We were on a trip during Thanksgiving weekend and in need for a stop at night. We arrived at 11:30 PM and we were friendly welcome by a charming young lady.
Hotel is clean and quiet despite the fact that is is currently being remodeled.
Breakfast is awesome with everything you need for a good start in the morning.

We are a group of Volunteer Habitat for Humanity Disater Relief Mission Team that have been in the Southern USA for 16 weeks since March 2006 aiding in the Rebuilding Of Hopes & Dreams of those much less fortunate and victims of natures violent acts... This was our 5 visit to Tuscaloosa since the Spring of 2012 and we have stayed at the Centerstone Inn 4 times and have found this motels a fantastic site for us for stays... The rooms have always been clean, beds confortable, Breakfast great and the staff has been extremely accomodating, especially Catherine & Brooke, and are a true gem in the job of making guests feel at home away from home... Note: Our 1st stay was next door at the Value Place and that was a NEVER again... The management of Centerstone Inn has been extremely helpful in our need for lodging we can afford, yet, clean, comfortable & friendly staff... THANX!!! Cathrine, Brooke & Management

This is the second time that we stayed at this hotel. Katherine, the evening desk clerk was very helpful in making sure that our room was right. The Hotel was always clean. The Hotel is undergoing renovations by the new owner, so it will only get better.

Katherine Talley was the most helpful and friendliest front desk manager we have ever encountered. She was the epitome of Southern hospitality. She explained the renovations of the hotel. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Well lit hotel and parking lot.
