Not a luxury hote but I knew that when booking. A great alternative to the $350+ night at Fairfield or Hilton in Tuscaloosa! Just stayed one night but can see that this would be a great choice for longer stays with the kitchenette. Beds were comfy, air worked great and most importantly it was very clean.

The nicest staff that have a smile and are friendly. Its each one of them too not just one.

Paid almost double the normal price because of graduation. That's okay, I agreed to that when I reserved the room. But room only had one bed and they wanted to charge $20 per night for a cot in the room.

Very nice, clean, and well kept. Parking lot was well-lit, but it was a little hard to see from main intersection.

not easy to get there after the game & they need a bigger sign, but the room was very clean & the bed & pillows were very comfy. Overall id stay there again & sugest others to also.

They accept pets but they REALLY GOUGE you on a pet fee--$75 non-refundable, RIDICULOUS! The saving grace for this motel is that it is nearly brand new. The queen (we wanted a king) was rather uncomfortable. Convenient location. Front desk help did not seem very experienced. One young lady was being visited by her boyfriend while she was on duty--not very professional.

The room was great. The staff was terrific, friendly and helpful.

The hotel is very nice and clean and the rooms are excellent. There were a few quirks though. When I first arrived, my smoke alarm went off in my room. There was obviously something burning ( you could smell it) but it just wasnt in my room. Staff quickly moved me to another room. Everything in the next room was fine, but on my last night there, I saw this HUGE waterbug walk down my wall! I almost decided to pack up and sleep in my car! I am extremely afraid of bugs but did muster up enough courage to kill it. I swear it had to have been like 2 or 3 inches long! I was on the ground floor near the pool though. Other than that, it was fine. I would stay there again. Their snack area is based on the honor system. You can charge snacks to your room or just slip cash in the slot for items. I like that option. Very convenient to malls, restaurants, UA.

I spend 1 night there and it was a nice hotel to me.

Could not have asked for better. The staff is extremely friendly. Very clean!
