Staff was friendly. Public areas were hot and humid and had a musty smell. Pool was cloudy and had a film on top. Room was ok, but wouldn't stay here again.

No hot water 1st morning. Staff says due to full capacity. A/C in Fitness room didn't work. Bed was comfortable. Room clean. I would not sry here during a game weekend for triple the price.

I have stayed at this location many times before, but usually during June/July. Perhaps because it is football season and the hotels get slammed the quality seemed lacking. There was hair all over the floor in our bathroom and the breakfast choices were VERY slim compared to my past visits.

Not much Comfort, we traveled with our son and he had to sleep on a (what looked to be) 1970's era sofa bed. There wasn't any bedding available for that in the room. We'd made the reservation for three people, paid $20/night extra for the third person and the room had a King size bed and sofa bed. Do the math. That sofa bed was going to be used. When I went down to the desk to ask for bedding to be brought up, I was told they couldn't do that but I could take it upstairs myself. I was handed a set of sheets, one pillow and a thin blanket. We had to make that bed ourselves, not a pleasant experience after a long travel day. "Suites" is a misnomer, we were given a regular size hotel room with a 4 foot dividing wall between the King size bed and the sofa. It just took up valuable space in the room and added little actual privacy. In addition to that, with the sofa bed folded out, there were only a few inches left between the desk and the foot of that bed. Very difficult to walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night without either hitting your hip on the desk, or jostling the person on the sofa bed.The hotel is next to a busy road, so be prepared for traffic noise. The coffee maker was in the bathroom for some reason ? I believe it would be more sanitary to move that to the desk or fridge/microwave cart.

Nice room, what I expected. The indication was that there was a hot tub on site via pictures and in information. There was none. Not the end of the world but one of the factors I consider.

Room was clean staff was friendly. Compared to other hotels that charge the same or more I didn't see a difference

Nice room, but the motorcycle drag races at two in the morning wasn't good at all. Interstate noise is tolerable with the A/C fan on high.

Pretty average accommodations, somewhat of an aging hotel.

This was my third trip to Tuscaloosa and the third time to stay at this hotel. It is a bit pricier than others in town, which I have been willing to pay given that the hotel is supposed to be newer than others. It doesnt really show. Its just ok for the money. Also, will be looking for a place that is not directly on MacFarlan because that road has alot of congestion.
