We arrived in time to relax out beside the pool, which was very peaceful, before going to dinner. The room and beds were...

My wife and I stayed here recently to attend our niece's graduation from the university and we were delighted by this hotel.

We used this hotel as our home base during our visit to the University of Alabama. It was clean and convenient for where we needed it. We plan on returning again when we visit the college again in the summer.

Stayed there one night while in town on business. Staff was friendly, and there is a pool and fitness center. There also was a nice breakfast spread, though I had an off-site breakfast meeting so did not try anything. Location near the center of town so easy access to all. Would stay there again.

This is one of the very few hotels that have been updated in the Tuscaloosa area. The location is very convenient, breakfast good. I would love to stay here again, however it stays booked up! Can't go wrong here.
