This hotel is very nice! We stayed here for an game weekend and we expected it to be run down but it wasn't. The room was spacious and it had a nice kitchenette available. They also have a pantry with snack foods and microwaveable dishes. We will stay here again!

Pulled in late one night this week on way home for a funeral. Front desk staff very nice. Room was clean, spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Good parking and well lighted. Close to lots of eateries. No breakfast but they do have a pantry. Pet friendly.

My son and I stayed here two nights. On the morning of check-out, we were both in a deep sleep when housekeeping loudly knocked and started jiggling our door. Luckily, we had the safety lock on however, it startled both of us and, with pounding hearts, jolted out of our beds. Then about twenty minutes later, while my son was... More

Stayed here for a week from Cali and loved it!! They keep everything very clean! Beds are so comfy and staff is very nice. Always see someone cleaning. The little gym and free laundry area is a really nice touch too. Road noise is a bit loud but not too bad. Needed the extra noise for my sleep anyway. Will... More

My mom and I stayed here when she visited me in Tuscaloosa last month. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly, but we found it to be incredibly loud, which made it hard to sleep at night.

We had a one bedroom suite and it was very nice and roomy, plenty of space for 3 adults and a small dog. The pull-out sofa bed mattress leaves a lot to be desired as they all do but the bed in the bedroom was nice and comfortable. The sheets that go on the bed are awesome, would love to... More

We stayed at this hotel since our favorite was booked and I cannot understand why this place is rated so high. It was clean but for the cost, I would expect a comfortable bed to sleep in. I kept rolling to the middle of the bed since there was a low spot in the center of the mattress.
