“Just passing through”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

This was a great experience with the hotel staff being very accomidating. I need to check in early and leave late. They address my requirements positively which made my visit to the area easier in conducting the business at hand.

I am always content with Fairfields because they are very consistent. While I have stayed at this Fairfield before and don't remember having this same experience, the beds in my room (314) were way too soft. I am talking sink down into the middle soft. My wife actually made the comment that the bed we sleep on in her mother's house was more comfortable, and that one is 40+ years old.
Everyone has a personal opinion. If you like soft beds, you may love it. And, everything else was as you would expect it at a Fairfield - clean and consistent (with one exception - this is Alabama so the staff are exceptionally friendly!)

Room Tip: If you are at the University of Alabama and following your GPS, it may take you up some side streets...

Fairfield Inns are moderately priced hotels so don't expect a 5 star experience. This one was in good condition, the staff was friendly and my room was clean. The complimentary breakfast had a good selection of items. They had my favorite hazelnut creamer for my coffee so I was very pleased and the Belgian waffles were good! My bed was comfortable and I slept very well. I stayed Christmas night so there were not a lot of people booked (which I did not mind at all). I'm a travel advisor (agent) and am very selective of the hotels I stay in even though I did not book this one, my traveling companion did. It's located on an access road and is near several restaurants. I definitely recommend this property if you are looking for somewhere that's moderately priced and convenient.

I had a very nice stay at the hotel and the staff was very responsive to my needs. It is truly a great value for the dollar and close to numerous eating establishments. I will definitely choose to stay there again!

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.
