SpringHill Suites Tuscaloosa

Hotel Indigo Tuscaloosa Downtown

Nice hotel and close to campus

The rooms were comfy but not the cleanest hotel. Dirt on the floors in the main room of our room, toenail or fingernail clippings on the bathroom floor, the room didn't get cleaned each day like most hotels, takes FOREVER to get a cocktail in the lobby bar or the rooftop bar (if you're lucky to find a bartender at all). The rooftop bar looked as if it wasn't even cleaned up from the night before as we got there a little after 5:15pm and there were several empty glasses all over and they open at 5pm. I was a little concerned, with the flu and colds going around campus, with the young man tending to the front on Sunday afternoon. He was more interested in the football playoffs than tending to the desk and also proceeded to cough (without covering his mouth) all over the napkins, utensils and plates on the bar. It's a nice hotel that has great potential but not sure if it was really worth the extra cost over the Embassy Suites up the road from it.

Quality Inn Tuscaloosa

My review of Quality Inn Tuscaloosa

The Quality Inn was a well-maintained facility, with helpful staff. The breakfast provided was adequate. The pool was located in the parking lot, which was very unusual, and was very small. The hotel was difficult to find from the highway. However, its location was close to the University of Alabama campus, which was our main objective. There was shopping within walking distance of the hotel. I would stay there again, given the value for the money.
