First (of many) visits to Tuscaloosa

My daughter and I went to visit University of Alabama as a possible college for this coming Fall. I went online to find hotels located close to the University and found Best Western. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting U of A. The location is about 5 minutes away from the college and EXTREMELY easy yo get to. Although I was a bit nervous when I pulled into the hotel…it is located in the middle of a parking lot, which was not the impression I got when looking at the photos online. However… the staff was delightful and the sleeping rooms were clean, updated and very quiet. Not to mention the complimentary breakfast was delicious. It was a place I will be sure to be staying at MANY times for the next 4 years!!! ROLL TIDE!

Great deal, very nice surprise. Would recommend.

My friends and I stayed here on the way to an Auburn football game in Starkville. It was a great deal, and obviously had recently been renovated. It was a very pleasant stay, and we ended up staying again on Saturday night on the way home instead of driving back.

We have stayed here on a couple of occasions for quick overnight visits to Bama. It is very convenient to campus as well as other establishments and major highways. Free breakfast is great and the staff are very friendly.

Soccer regionals

We got in at midnight. The desk clerk was VERY accommodating , she was able to change my room to a ground floor room. We drove right up to our room. The breakfasts were wonderful, clean and always wiped & refilled. I didn't care for the eggs but I have fresh farms eggs daily;) When I went to the front area to ask for advice as to what to do in the area 2 staff members were having their lunch & 1 lady- I think Julia stopped eating to show me the coupon area & diagram a map for me! The front desk clerk was busy at that time. They were all happy & smiles;) I had a problem with my frig- it quit;( , they were VERY apologetic and replaced it & put all my food into the working one while we were at the soccer game. The front desk clerk--same one who took time away from her lunch---I think Juia(?) made sure to ask about the change with a follow up phone call. It was either rainy or we were at soccer games so we didn't use the pool. I gave it perfect stars as I saw the condition & saw other guests enjoying it. My only "complaint" would be the smell of the new black top:(. But it was smooth. I felt totally secure & safe at this location, I travel as a single mom with my children most of the time. Overall this was a Great 3 night stay & we would definitely stay here again if we visit the area again. Thank you!

Leary--but glad we stayed!

I booked this hotel online-which means sight unseen. When we arrived I was leary. The building is oddly situated behind a gas station and a restaurant and it is right off the interstate. The lobby was nice and the staff friendly. Our room was nice and smelled cleaned. The beds were comfy and the bathroom roomy. The pool area was nice too--just a little difficult with 3 yr old and no steps at entrance--but it was just for a quick swim so not a big deal. The drink machines did not work--I walked around the property to find a drink and the machines would not take the money. Overall, good price and clean room and convenient to lots of things.
