Recent guest reviews

Very clean. Service top notch. Complete breakfast that is very tasty. Very quiet. Great location. Has pool.The rooms have all the amenities, fridge,micro,tv,ironing board, hair dryer. A nice strong shower with lots of hot water.

The price for the room was great. The best stay I have had for less than $75.00. Clean rooms comfortable beds , everything worked. A/C was quiet. Water was Hot. Tv worked. Fairly quiet area. Close to shopping centers. All around I would rate this as a 10 plus. for the money

Had a family event in Northport and did not want to pay the high prices in Tuscaloosa. Read prior reviews and stayed at the Best Western. Great choice!! Minutes from my sons home and church. The room was completely remodeled and very clean. Bed firm. Pillows so-so. Very convenient location.

My stay at this Best Western was as great as in the past. Have stayed there in the past to visit my Mother who is in nursing home near the motel. It is easy to get to the facility from this motel. Will be staying there in the future.

We are from California and we visited Tuscaloosa to attend the Iron Bowl. We had the absolute best time! This Best Western was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The Indian lady at the front desk (I wish I remembered her name) was so professional and gracious! We had such a spectacular time watching UA play, we plan to return next year, and this Best Western will where we stay.

This is the location I try to stay on each visit to Northport/Tuscaloosa. The motel is small, very clean, comfortable and quiet. I am always pleased with my stay. Cannot comment on the breakfast as I have not tried that yet. But overall, I would recommend this motel to all my friends and family.

when every we are in town this is our choice.nice people. good breakfast. good value small older hotel that has been redone inside and out. compares to any new hotel.rooms have new beds,new furniture,new tv's,new flooring and the bathrooms have been completely refinished.

Motel is just okay. Office staff friendly. Room seemed clean although it had a strange smell likely from a perfumy cleaning spray. WAY OVERPRICED for what you get though. Very small room. Beds pretty soft. Maybe too soft. Room very dim. Needs more lighting. TV had lots of channels to select from. Maid service consisted of taking out used towels and replacing with clean. That was it. No cleaning. Floor not swept. Did not change linens on bed. Did not even make the bed. I know it was a football weekend but $971 for 2 nights in this place is overpriced considering I could have stayed at a Hilton for same price. I know that all hotels in Tuscaloosa gouge rates on football weekends. I typically stay at a Hilton or Marriott property but stayed here because some friends had already made reservations here and we wanted to be at same place.

The motel was clean and neat. The bed was very comfortable pillows need to be softer. Need better lighting at the vanity. Parking was very tight. They had additional seating in the room that was attractive.

The Best Western Catalina Inn is fairly close to the University of Alabama. The rooms are really clean and comfortable and the woman at the front desk was really nice and helpful. The rooms do not have carpet but faux wood flooring. I really liked that. It seems cleaner than carpet.
