This was a great experience at this Hotel. This was the first time I have stayed here and I will make my next reservation with this Hotel. All of the Staff members were excellent. Could have not asked for a better stay.

Temperature Rising

Dropped son off at college. Second time staying at this hotel over a three year period. Should have learned my lesson after the first stay. It has gotten worse. Room air conditioner unplugged and knobs removed by management. "Not cool" for August in Tuscaloosa. Sweated all night. Got out of room asap in morning to cool off in car air conditioning. Bathroom fixtures were clean, but toilet seat was almost broken and bathroom walls and door looked absolutely filthy. Avoid this place if possible.

Not a great experience.

The positive item about this hotel is the staff is polite and the cost was low. The negatives were many. It took a long time to check in and the first room they gave me had not been cleaned. The second room had been cleaned but not well. There were two buildings and the keys for the second one did not open the building where the main office was so you had to pound on the door to get to the main office for problems and check out in the morning. Not a great experience.

Check in nightmare

Absolutely the worst check in experience. My wife and I walk into the lobby looking for a check in desk but couldn't find one. Nor could I see a sign identifying where to check in. After walking around the lobby looking for the place to check in I finally asked a customer inside an office area. She confirmed this is where you check in. It was an office area with 2 office desk. The employee checking her in never once asked if she could help me or let me know this is where you check in. After waiting for 30 minutes for the employee to check the customer in before me it was finally my turn to check in. I give the employee my name and after flipping thru a stack of papers (which I found odd because everything is on computers these days# she has no record of my reservation. After a lengthy phone call to the company I made the reservations through she finally has the information she needs to at least let me get checked in. This whole process of waiting and checking in took 50 minutes. It should not take 50 minutes to check into a hotel. Not one apology from the employee on not having my reservation nor the amount of time I had to wait. However, once we finally got to our room I was very pleased with the room. It was clean and quiet. The only negative to the room is it didn't have a hair dryer. If this hotel can install a check in desk #or at least a $15.00 sign letting you know where to check in), get computerized, and hire more friendly employees it would be a great place to stay.

Never going back

Worst place I have ever booked. Big sign posted on cabinet: Dishes washed, but not sanitized. Saw roach in the bathroom, towels stained and yellow. Had booked 2 rooms. One did not get maid service one day and the other just had the bed made. Usually like to spend time in my hotel room at the end of the day, but made plans to be out extra late so as to spend minimal time in the room. Learned from staff that General Manager walked out the day of our arrival after 3 days on the job. New manager on premises the next day and very apologetic for conditions when I complained. Nice words, but too late to do anything about it. Tried calling, but line always busy.

Southern Friendly.

At check~in things didn't go as smooth as possible. But, during the next two days, they more than made up fir it! Maintenance staff was exceptional! Fun, Friendly, and sweet down home feel to this hotel. Highly recommend, especially if you need access to the University of Alabama.

Downright awful

Waited 20 minutes just for receptionist to check in. Room was dirty and extremely smoky. Went to request another one and waited 45 minutes for receptionist who never showed (at 24hr registration desk.) we left and got another hotel room.

Stay in the newer main building pictured

We came to Tuscalossa for freshman orientation and I brought my daughter. We booked this online, and when we arrived to this property, the front desk manager was not immediately available, and we had to track her down in the parking lot. It seems they only have one person on call or working at a time, so you cannot count on immediate service. The front desk person assigned us our room in an older building, which I came to realize is is the Home Suite Studios building. We entered that building and it stank of cigarette smoke and there was dirt and litter in the halls and stairs (no elevator). When we entered our 2nd floor room, the cigarette smell was not as strong, and the beds and carpet and flat screen TV were in newer condition. However the kitchen area was worn, there was rust and grime around the cook top, and mildew stains on the caulking. There was a six inch circular section of paint peeling from the bathroom ceiling, and one of the pictures was missing over the beds, with just the hangers left exposed on the wall. I went back to the lobby and used the lobby phone to contact the front desk manager, who came to the lobby promptly. I explained what we encountered in the first room, and there was no apology for the inconvenience. I requested a room in the main building which is the property pictured online, and fortunately she was able to assign us a new room. This room was in much better shape, newer and more spacious. There was no cigarette smell. The bathroom was fairly clean, but had a slight mildewy smell. The level of cleanliness throughout the main areas of the property,; lobby, breakfast area, rest room, was below average, but if you are not too particular about this,and don't mind cleaning up a bit on your own, the rate is comparatively lower to other hotels,. The location is good relative to UA, Target and Malls. Be sure to confirm your room is in the newer Home town Suites building.

It's an inexpensive rate if you can confirm a room in the newer building. If the staff could step up their customer service and maid service, it would help considerably.

A Little Different

Off I-85 a few miles close to the college. Used for long term work residents as well as overnight guests. Ok for one night. No elevator.
