Pleasantly surprised at how nice our room was; one comment or suggestion is that the rooms don't have mini-fridges which isn't a big deal for a night or two, but it would be nice to have a place to keep fruit and drinks cool
Overall, the hotel was good. The hotel is a little older so there knowing this will help in the expectations. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff seem to be helpful and courteous. My only complaint is the hotel does not provide a blow dryer or shampoo for the rooms. However, for the price ...
Hotel is perfect location when visiting our son! Nice bar and friendly staff.. Room is a little dated, but comfortable and quiet! My only negative is no safe in room Housekeeper stopped us in hallway and asked if we wanted turnover service and towels. We said no towels but yes to bed... Bed never ...
The hotel is right off the highway and in a somewhat desolate area, but inside it's very modern and clean. The breakfast was fine, not many healthy offerings, but the staff were friendly, and overall it's definitely at the top of my list of more budget-friendly hotels in the area for quality.
The room was nice just needed some minor things fixed in it. I was very disappointed overall by the way the staff acted when having to do something. It wasn't all the staff because I did have some good interaction with some of the staff. This is a good hotel if you just need a reasonably priced place ...
Tuscaloosa was named after the legendary Creek Indian Chief Tuskaloosa, whose name means "Black Warrior." Not surprisingly the town rests beside the beautiful Black Warrior River. Mining and river transportation sustained the city for years, but in 1831 Tuscaloosa became the home of the University of Alabama. The hotels in Tuscaloosa include bed and breakfast inns, spacious family and executive suites, and great budget rooms. Guests will enjoy the free breakfasts, Wi-Fi, whirlpools, exercise centers, and exceptional southern hospitality offered by the staff.
Tuscaloosa hotels will help plan clients' special events. The hotels have beautiful event facilities and lodging for business meetings, banquets, reunions, weddings, and conventions.
Chuck's Fish is a classy dining venue with a great menu, which includes steak cooked to perfection, fresh fish, and sushi. Expect a warm southern welcome at Chuck's and excellent service.
Visitors love the Bama Theater — a beautiful, historic theater that is pretty much the talk of the town. For entertainment and cultural activities, the Bama Theater has it all.
University Mall offers 88 different stores with big retail chains like JCPenney and Sears. The mall is certainly one of the biggest shopping venues in the western part of Alabama.
Tuscaloosa is a college town with an awesome sports environment. The Crimson Tide (football team) is Tuscaloosa's pride and joy. The University of Alabama takes their sports seriously and from now until next May, sports events will surely make headlines.
We stayed two nights at this hotel in Hoover. Room was nice, although we were awoken both mornings to the sound/screaming/arguing of a young child several floors below us. Since we have younger children, we understand the difficulty in new surroundings, but allowing this child to continue on yelling and actually argue back-and-forth was unacceptable. A call to the hotel desk on the second morning produced no results. My biggest disappointment was the breakfast at Merk’s Tavern & Kitchen. Granted it was busy, but the service was horrendous. We waited in the custom omelet line, received our omelet and ate half of it before a waitress appeared to ask again for our drink orders. Shortly, our water glasses were empty again, and we spent the rest of the meal that way. She seemed to realize how poor the service was because she comp'ed the two children's meals. But the bill was still $40 for a meal which was sub-par to IHOP or Denny's. My children enjoyed the pool which had a hot tub and a well-stocked supply of towels nearby. The parking garage had ample open spaces, but was very tight navigating around the corners and entrance. Definitely wouldn't want to be in a large vehicle. So overall, I'd recommend this hotel but definitely skip the overpriced breakfast and enjoy the convenient location.
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.
What a beautiful spot. Golf course, water views, nature walks, etc. Wish I had more time this trip to further explore the area.
We had a pretty good stay. The bathroom tub needs to be redone. Felt like it could fall in anytime. We would stay there again.
