“Really enjoyed this location quiet and convenient”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

enjoyed the location although in town, the way the hotel is located off the road makes it seem remote. It's a little difficult to find your way out and back onto the main road ways but ask the front desk for the handy maps and you're on your way.

This hotel is always great. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is a very clean hotel and most of the rooms are newly remodled. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast bar is loaded and the attendant is very friendly. When I come to Tuscaloosa I stay here

Rooms have just about everything one needs--including 4 lamps with bulbs providing enough light to see and by which to read. AC works perfectly, tho' could be a bit quieter. Only quibble: not enough drawers for clothing, but lots of extra hangers provided. Staff friendly, efficient, helpful. Baumhower's restaurant next door has excellent fresh food. Hotel breakfast very good--no cooked to order eggs, but otherwise completely satisfactory. Cookies and milk in the evenings creative lagniappe. Highly recommended.

When given the chance we choose Hampton Inn when we travel, particularly this one in Tuscaloosa. It's close to the Bama campus, and the service is always terrific. Just wish the hotel was larger so we could get rooms more often.

I booked this hotel at the last minute for a college visit down to the University. We walked in and was immediately impressed with the renovations. The traveler pictures you see on here do not do it justice - actually some of them are outdated because the lobby looks totally different. Very clean, modern and inviting. Leather couches and chairs all around. Check-in was very easy and we went straight to our room. Someone said the beds were made from chiseled concrete but I don't agree with that at all. Our beds were very comfortable, plush and we both slept like rocks. Great color schemes throughout the hotel. Mini fridge and microwave were already in the room which was an added bonus. My son LOVED the breakfast the next morning - eggs, ham, potatoes, bagels, fruit and yogurt. That was just what he ate but there was plenty to choose from. We went next door to the sports bar for dinner that night and had great sandwiches. Clint was our waiter and he was friendly, attentive and very helpful about the area. Great guy! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the University - it's literally 2 to 3 minutes from campus. I would definitely stay here again if we were ever in the area. Thanks for a great stay!

Rooms are very comfortable, and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is Great. I had to stay at a courtyard in the same town not as nice and cost more. Hampton Inn is my choice for places to stay.

The beds were made from chiseled concrete of this I'm sure! The hotel has been redone and was very nice and stylish. New carpet, interiors and furniture but the money should have been spent on the bed...looking to stay somewhere else next year!

We strive to be the preferred hotel in our market and we are committed to doing what it takes to take care of our guests. As we are completing the total remodel of the hotel, we are very excited about all the enhancements which have been made to our guest rooms.
