Anyone who had read my reviews may have noticed I've spent a lot of time in Tuscaloosa the past six months. We finally were able to stay at the Hamption Inn that is just blocks away from the UA campus. It is definitely a go to if you are going to anything at Bama (and can't get into the Capstone Hotel right on campus).
It's not really walkable, but just minutes away. It's set off the road a bit, which, in my opinion, made it more quiet than other places I've stayed in Tuscaloosa. The hotel is lovely inside - rooms spacious and clean, staff attentive. And of course Alabama/Crimson Tide/Elephant decor abounds. Cookies in the evening and a decent breakfast (not anything made to order, but better than continental). Coffee and tea and apples available 24/7.
And so convenient to campus. Yes, the price is higher than some other places (though less than the Hilton Garden Inn several miles away). But my experience in Tuscaloosa is that you definitely get what you pay for. And know that for football weekends, the price is crazy high - supply and demand hard at work.
This hotel fills up fast given it's proximity to campus - so know that you will not likely have any luck with last minute reservations. But book it when you can - definitely my most comfortable stay over the past six months!
