College football allows too excessive of a mark-up for Value hotels. This hotel is very good but not at $250 dollars a night- yet everybody wants price controls on Big Pharma- then lets spread the wealth- all business need to conform. Pleasant personal and nice decor but needs to price accordingly!

An older property but well maintained. Staff were very nice. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was good, about what you'd expect at comparable hotel. At check in for a football weekend they had a good amount of snacks and water out in the lobby at check in with printed game weekend info and clear plastic bags that could be used to...

Not worth the money...pay a little more and get far better. The breakfast wasn't and the room was not what I expected in quality nor overall performance. Breakfast is not bags of half eaten cereal left on a counter day after day.

Rooms are big and clean, but kinda dark. Breakfast is good and has a good variety. Towels are changed out daily and the Hotel pool is kinda nice Nothing to freak out about but nothing to complain about either.

We went for the Alabama game. We came to this hotel after the game & were pleased with the cleanliness of the room. We got the extra towels & courtesy we expected. Our only problem was a broken toilet that couldn't be fixed because there was no one that could. Otherwise, it would have been a perfect stay!

We had two rooms and stayed over Labor Day weekend for a family reunion. The rooms were clean, staff was very nice and the breakfast was better than the breakfast we paid for on our first day in Alabama. We ate at Waysider and definitely would not recommend. If you don't eat at the hotel, definitely don't eat there. We...

We have done a great deal of traveling this summer and this Best Western was one of the very best! The staff was great and the restaurant breakfast was wonderful. We had a very nice stay. Wished we could stay for more than one night.

Yes, the breakfast is very good, but the room was dank, dark, and damp, and there were unusual smells emanating from the sink as well as the comforter. There is no way on earth that this is the fifth best hotel in Tuscaloosa. Stay away if you can stand to drop an extra twenty bucks!
