Desperate Stay

The room was totally unappealing from the door. The odor of stell air and cigarette smoke was overwhelming. Although on the surface the room appeared clean, it took only a short time to start listing the reasons it is a 1 STAR. The walls were painted with visible unpainted spots, the bath seat had cigarette stains, and the bathroom walls had human deposits on the walls and the microwave had baked on food left behind. Do I need to say more?

Nasty little Tuscaloosa Getaway

Three friends and I went to Tuscaloosa for a football game weekend. We knew it would be hard to find somewhere to stay so we took a chance with this place. It was horrible. [...] When we got to our room it smelled horrible and one of our keys didn't work. The next morning neither key worked and the manager downstairs said it would be late afternoon till he could have them working again. [...] We were not pleased to say the least with this hotel.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Do not go to the new Houndstooth bar...it is not nearly as fun as it used to be. Check out Katch 22 for their infused Vodka. The blueberry shots are the best!!!

Terrible Hotel Stay

The pictures shown on the website are not the way the room actually look. The hotel is very unclean. There was rust all over the tub. The carpet was dirty and smelled. I requested a non-smoking room and was placed in a smoking room. The air vents had mold on them. My wife did not even take her shoes off while walking around the room. We had to go and buy bath towels because the ones provided had visible dirt on them. This Hotel was Terrible.

Sweet Dreams

We stayed at this hotel on our wedding night waiting to get out of Alabama. We didnt pay much attention to anything except each other but it was a comfortable bed and a nice hot shower.

We went to a bar named R & B and hung out with friends. It was a great place to dance, drink and play pool.

Very worn down

This hotel looks to be run down with very little maintenance or up-keep. The floors in the bathroom were roughly patched and parts of the bathroom walls had holes. Everything was extremely outdated. The bathroom sink would not drain and the bathroom floor seemed always to be wet. The continental breakfast was laughable.
