“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

The room was clean and had both a refrigerator and microwave. Desk staff were very accommodating - I needed to get juice before the start of the complimentary breakfast and the night staff was willing to turn on the machine for me. The hotel is a little hard to locate since isn't directly off the highway.

Older hotel, room smelled musty even though it was clean. Located in convenient location to highway. Not much of a selection for breakfast, fruit looked old. Will choose another hotel the next time I'm in Tuscaloosa. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Marriott needs to upgrade hotel with security doors that are handicapped accessible.

Found the room to be clean and quiet. Older property, a little worn, but had great amenities.

Room Tip: We asked for a free upgrade, and was given one.

Staff at Fairfield Tuscaloosa are like a second family to us, as we're into son's second year at Bama. The room was clean and spacious, the bed so comfortable. Great TV with timer so I can fall asleep to the TV, like I do at home. Wonderful variety of breakfast choices, healthy options for the visiting athletes and good Southern cooking for those of us who like a robust meal. Looking forward to more stays in the future. Willing to pay even high football rates because of the cleanliness of the hotel and top notch customer service.

Room Tip: Third floor very quiet

I stayed here for one evening. The hotel was off the highway and had some walkable dining options near by.
The facilities were basic, could have been a bit sharper as Ive seen with newer FFI' hotels. My biggest gripe was that the beds were so soft I had a lot of trouble sleeping. It was both of the queens in my room that I tried, both were far too soft in my opinion.

Very pleasant and welcoming staff. Near highway but even though we faced that side, did not have road noise from the room. Rooms a bit worn in places (sink drain, ceiling patch) but clean and comfortable. Indoor pool onsite but not very warm. Lobby doors not have a automatic open making wheelchair accessibility a bit tricky. Better value than other hotels in the area. Worked well for a one night stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back for even less road noise.

Pro's:
- Lower price than surrounding hotels. (Cheaper than the nearby Days Inn which is very odd)
- Staff is extremely friendly and helpful
- Rooms are clean with comfortable beds
- Indoor pool
- Close to many restaurant options and shopping

Con's:
- Near the interstate so there is constant noise (Not overly loud)
- It's located in a very odd place which is hard to find off the interstate
- Hotel in general is dated
- No free weights in the exercise room

Overall, the issues with this hotel are mostly insignificant and "nit-picky". The staff was extremely friendly, prompt, and professional. The room was simple, clean, and the bed was very soft. Although, if you are the kind of person who needs silence when you sleep you may want to search elsewhere. The hotel is near the interstate and it -can- be heard during the night, but it's more background noise than anything, nothing serious. (Although this could probably be credited to the fact that I was on the top floor on the interstate side)

I do have to say that those of you who stay in Fairfield Inn's frequently will probably be disappointed because this is a rather dated building that was probably converted into a Fairfield in the past. It doesn't feel like a Fairfield Inn, and if I had the choice again, I would have stayed at the Courtyard next door.

Overall, this is a solid choice if you want an above average hotel for 1-2 nights for a good price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the opposite side of the interstate.
