“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Had a great experience. Only stayed one night but will definitely go back. Located close to the UA campus, it was convenient to many stores. Hotel was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding.

Stayed here for a conference Bad weather in the area forced us to begin the meeting in the hotel. The staff was super and so flexible. My room was possibly the cleanest room I have ever stayed in. Will return when in the area.

Stayed here for three nights while my son was at the University. The staff were absolutely wonderful. Pleasant, always smiling, and always asking how we are doing or if we need help with anything. The rooms were perfect. Everything in working order, comfortable beds and large bathroom area. The breakfast room was great. Food was very good, and there was a large selection of items. Coffee was great. It was nice having the complimentary computers in the breakfast room, along with couches and tv's. Never felt squished as you do in some of the hotels.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor which is always convenient.

Stayed here two nights during a football weekend. Excellent service with several extras. Breakfast is very good, same as most nice HIEX. Two trend ants always willing to assist. Very clean and well organized. Friday afternoons they have a happy hour that is free, wine, beer, snacks and wonderful desserts. Very nice and plenty of food. Very convenient location for anything in Tuscaloosa. Definitely a great place to stay.

I travel a lot for work and find there are a few things that I regard as important. 1) Friendliness of staff, 2) cleanliness of the facility, 3) safety and 4) Parking. This was the first time I have stayed at this hotel. The staff was super friendly. I felt safe and there was plenty of parking. I did try the complementary breakfast buffet and it was ok. I did not use any of the amenities such the exercise room, pool or sauna.

My family and I stopped here on our way home from Gatlinburg. We loved the rooms, breakfast & staff! This hotel is clean and toddler friendly! Ms. Dot is a doll and helped so much with our babies during breakfast. When we are in the area again we will definitely stay again.
