The Best Western Catalina Inn, Northport, Alabama is our "go to" hotel for all things Bama - Roll Tide! My family and I have been exclusively using this hotel as our son completed both undergraduate and graduate programs at the University of Alabama. Although his Alabama career is now behind him, my husband and I still visit Tuscaloosa for sports...

I was in town for an Alabama home football game. I've come to realize how expensive rooms can be during home football weekends. I made a reservation at BW Catalina without hearing anything about it. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast included was much better than I was expecting. It...

After hearing such great reviews I had a horrible experience. I booked on Best Western hotel and my room ended up being a smoking room although when booking it is in small print on the bottom. Best Western needs to have it in bold SMOKING ROOM. Many of us do not smoke and it was a huge disappointment to be...

The stay was a very good experience. Will certainly stay there again in the near future. My Mother is in a Rehab Center within walking distance of the motel. I felt very safe in the neighborhood and with walking to the center. It is located in very short distances from good eating places so I did not have to drive...

Clean, comfortable room. The staff were helpful and friendly, Everything works. Old but well-maintained motel. Special thanks to housekeeping; they did a very good job and kept things clean. Convenient location.

Just minutes from the campus of The University of Alabama, this older, motor court style hotel is not much to look at. However, for the price, in an area where lodging is ridiculously expensive, it is quite the bargain. Well kept, clean, with friendly staff, we have stayed here many times and will stay many more.

We were passing through and stayed the one night here, its a motel style BW, we found it clean, well kept, rooms felt like they had had recent refit. Staff were great and the breakfast was fresh and plentiful. We would recommend this BW and would stay again.

I truly experienced a big surprise upon arrival. The facility has always been very well priced and clean. This time however, I was shocked at the nice upgrades very nice, very comfortable. In my opinion, if you are on business and wish to receive a very comfortable evening at a very reasonable price select this facility. The rooms are very...

This hotel is clean and well kept. The staff was professional at both checkin/checkout. The breakfast was plentiful and fresh although the coffee both in the room and in the breakfast area was awful. Quite simply the worst coffee I have ever had. I would suggest an old fashioned coffee maker instead of that coffee machine you have. The rooms...
