“Needs some TLC”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

The price was right because we are seniors- but! The outside of the buildings need some upkeep. The place was old. The rooms were clean, but it is not one of the better La Quintas we have stayed in. The breakfast was good. The staff was over worked. Too bad, it could be better.

Stayed Friday May 11. $74 that night. I could see the sign from the door of laquinta for the motel 6 for $37 per night. Thought the motel 6 was probably a better value.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from the highway side for acceptable noise.

The Tuscaloosa La Quinta is a very good, basic hotel. Very clean rooms and helpful staff. Efficient and friendly check in and check out. Good breakfast. They continue to upgrade. New door locks since our previous stay there. Excellent beds in comfortable rooms. Great TVs. Will be staying there again next trip to Tuscaloosa.

I needed a room for a few nights while visiting my daughter at the University, and everything was booked due to a busy weekend at the school. I read the reviews about the location so I was prepared for the "hard to find" and outer store fronts not being in the best condition. When we walked into the lobby, we were greeted by the most friendliest staff. Our room was very clean and comfortable. My only gripe is the back side of the hotel faces the back side of a strip mall, and a garbage truck picking up the trash came really early in the morning and woke us up. When we go back to visit our daughter, we plan on staying here again, but will request a front side room (facing the highway).

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the highway

Just your basic cheap hotel, nothing fancy. Funny smell when you first get into your room,but everything was clean, beds were comfy,and just your basic free breakfast. Outside of the building needs updating but all in all a clean place to stay the night if you are passing through. Good price too.

Stayed here on several different occasions while in Tuscaloosa. Rooms were clean, and the bed provided a pretty good nights sleep. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The new telvisions in each room were a plus also. The area was quiet and so were the other guest in the rooms near our which was great. Quite a few restaraunts near by for dining choices and a mall that offered some alright shopping. Overall a pretty good place to stay if you're ever in the area.
