My sister and I stayed at this hotel for A-Day and we will not be staying here again. The service from the front desk was good. When we got to the room their was a horrible odor and it smelled like urine. We immediately wanted another room but was already informed that there wasnt any more rooms because they were booked solid. We sprayed the floor and room with febreeze and turned on the air. The beds were hard and uncomfortable. The walls are paper then and we could here everyones conversation. Our next door neighbors were very rude and they cursed all day and night. The bathroom was ok but very small. The water pressure wasnt any good and it took forever for the water to leave the tub when taking a shower and the toilet would take forever to flush. We definitely will not be staying here again.

My husband and I stayed here over night on our way to NOLA. It was convenient and near dining. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was probably one of the best we had on our 5 day trip! The breakfast dining area was large and clean. Pool area was clean and well kept. We saw some guests that were a little shady, and it makes it hard for housekeeping to keep up with the cigarette butts. But it was quiet and food was good and great location for some passers thru! I would definitely stay again!!

Park Plaza is located hear almost everything in Tuscaloosa. We were on a trip to the University and found BW the most reasonable and centrally located of all the other options in the area. I would definitely stay there again.

Not a fancy hotel, but a clean one. Located right off of interstate and behind O'Charley's restaurant . Close to university of Alabama ball games a short 10minute drive. Cookies and coffee available for free at night and a great breakfast . Pet friendly with snacks for the pets.
Overall a nice place to stay.

Room Tip: If traveling with a pet ask for a room on the back side,because there is a large field to walk them...

We recently started to travel with our dog so now we need to be aware of dog friendly lodging. The BW did accommodate our dog for an extra $10. The beds were comfortable and there was a nice area to walk the dog. O'Charley's restaurant was next door so we were able to get carry out for dinner. The staff was friendly. This is an older motel so don't expect anything fancy. We were disappointed in the cleanliness. There was certainly room for improvement in that area. Our puppy found a popcorn kernel and since we were not eating popcorn it had to be left in the room previously. They must have recently painted the room as there were paint splatters on the carpet and furniture.
