Laurie G

Stopped here on a road trip Friendly, welcoming staff Clean room

Good breakfast with good variety It is just off the highway which is a plus but also have to deal with the highway noise I took one star away due to the loud noise from the highway traffic making it hard to sleep If you can get a room on the opposite side of the highway, I would recommend this hotel

Loved the location Brenda and Kathy were so nice and helpful Check in and check out were a breeze, and housekeeping is consistent

I have no complaints, the room was spotless I felt so comfortable and tranquil during my entire stay If you’re looking for a quiet area in town that’s still close to all the amenities Tuscaloosa has to offer, this is the place to go

Jessica Dial

My husband and I stayed one night on 2/25/2022, the hotel was very nice and clean Autumn at the front desk was amazingly helpful and super sweet Only gave 4 stars because it could have been a touch cleaner, there were cobwebs on the wall and the full-length mirror, and some dirt on the floor of the bathroom, and the tub has someone else’s hair which is gross to me

The walls were also VERY thin our neighbor snored that’s all we heard ALL NIGHT LONG So that was enough of a deterrent that we won’t be staying again But it’s all according to your needs, and I would not tell anyone not to stay there We are just don’t do well with noises in hotels 7/10 would recommend but not the hotel for us

Kishina Brown

For this to be a new hotel I figured the accommodations would be just a little bit better especially for the price, but for a Comfort Inn property I see why they go down hill pretty quick First the room was half cleaned from the coins and trash I found on the floor Then after staying for two nights I asked for maid service and once I thought the room was cleaned I noticed the bed was made but the sheets were not changed and the bathroom was just restocked with towels and the counter wiped down but the used towels were not discarded

The plus was the fact the staff was very friendly, the breakfast was good, and the lobby nd elevators were very clean

A newer modern Residence Inn just across the Black Warrior River from The University of Alabama The convenient location makes it a good choice for visits to Tuscaloosa or just trips along 20 The lobby is spacious and all furnishings are in the new Residence Inn style

The hotel is very nice The decor is inviting and modern Trying to get to the hotel was a little difficult if you listen to your Google maps

The staff was very professional, from the front desk to the housekeeper and the ladies that manager the free breakfastWe had been traveling all day so all we wanted was a hot shower and a good night’s sleep The beds are super comfy; plenty of hot waterThe free breakfast was awesome, plenty of choicesExcellent stay! Would highly recommend!

Ryan Strain

The personnel were helpful and very friendly Our room wasn’t particularly the cleanest The pull out sofa had a giant stain and was full of candy remnants and old lollipop sticks

The outlets in the room were almost unusable as you couldn’t plug anything in to all but 2 of them Breakfast was included and was over all pretty good You certainly get what you pay for at the price(one of the cheaper ones we found), but our overall experience has us deciding we won’t stay here again

Liz Sutcliffe

My mother and I were traveling from Dallas, TX to Wilmington, NC We had been on the road for more than 10 hours We needed a pet-friendly hotel, and we referred to LaQuinta by another hotel that did not take pets

When we called to make sure that they had a room, the woman who answered was not inviting or helpful When we got there, there was another hotel next door, and had they taken pets, we would have stayed there However, they did not When we arrived, we were not greeted with a smile or any kind of greeting We felt like we were imposing on this person Later, I went to get a soft drink, and after waiting while she checked another guest in, she looked at me out of the corner of her eye and said, “Do you want that charged to the room or are you paying?” I told her I was paying and she said, “Two dollars” and looked away I put my two dollars on the counter and went back to the room Don’t expect friendly service at the desk The hotel itself was clean, our room was very nice It was convenient to Route 20

I have stayed at many Fairfield Inns and this one does not own up to the expected quality I have found at other locations When we arrived, we were told the elevator did not work so we would need to take the stairs As we walked down the hall to the stairs, there was a waste basket catching water dripping from the ceiling, and the next morning the basket was overflowing with water on the floor

As we walked to breakfast, we noticed dead roaches on the stairway The wall on the landing in the stairwell had plastic covering what appeared to be bad drywall The breakfast offered was pathetic One apple was available, only biscuits without gravy and no bread or bagels even though a toaster was available There was no oatmeal or cold cereals available, so basically you had a choice of scrambled eggs, prepackaged omelet, bacon or sausageThe only reason they deserved a two star rating was that the attendant at the front desk when we checked in was very friendlyThis place definitely needs a lot of improvements to keep up with what Marriott would expect from their franchisees

I stayed at the Home2 on business and had a great stay The property was in an excellent location within walking distance to downtown restaurants and bars The rooms were spacious and clean

Lauren at the front desk was the real MVP though She greeted us with a smile and was eager to be of help She was knowledgeable of the area and offered great suggestions I’ll certainly request to stay at the Home2 next time i’m in Tuscaloosa

Kelly Sorrells

DO NOT stay at this hotel!!! We are Hilton lifetime diamond members This Hilton property is by far one of the worst experiences we have ever had First, the place is being run by a bunch of unprofessional kids who are on their phones and act like they can’t be bothered

Half of the plugs in our room did not work The room phone did not work Terrible water pressure There was a dangerous mass of wires hanging out of the air conditioning unit We ask for maintenance at 11 am on Saturday and we were told that they had already left for the day We were also told at 11 am on a very busy Saturday that there was no manager available and would be no manger on Sunday as well One of the two elevators were broken and the guests were having to share the one operating elevator with housekeeping One of the two microwaves at breakfast was broken and there were no fresh options other than bread, no fruit, no yogurt, etc We were unable to use points to book the room and the nightly fee was more than $400 a night

Bridget Batchellor

We had a wonderful stay! Comfortable, clean, free breakfast, and great customer service Definitely can’t ask for more! Good location if you don’t mind a short drive for things, it’s 1 mile from UAIF you’re looking for close proximity walking to shops and food, then I recommend finding something on the other side of University Blvd

past highway 43S

Been living here for about two weeks and the rooms are great! Hardworking housekeeping as well as 10 star customer service from Dominique, Sequoria, @ Pamela! Regardless of a guest trying to accuse me of smoking in the building, having front desk call my room to mention the smoking fee as if I was, rather than watching camera or coming upstairs themselves to have a sniff, before accusing me I enjoyed this hotel very much Even Small things like so, can throw a person off on their trip Other than that, Breakfast is great and you have a wider variety of snacks and food here

I NEVER had a reservation booked through this hotel Contacted the hotel and they said I had to contact Expedia, who then contacted the hotel First attempt, the hotel informed Expedia employee that they were having computer issues and could not address the issue

Second attempt, the hotel said they were standing by their policy and charging me, even though I never had a reservation Will never stay here

Karen Vogt

This hotel has been updated and is in great shape! The pool is a saltwater pool and was clean The rooms were clean, and for the price, our stay was overall a great value The complimentary breakfast was good and there was a nice variety – only negative here is the breakfast area is very small, with only two tables available

We’d definitely stay here again

Pedro Gomez

Great staff The rooms where nice and clean and updated Great place to stay

Don’t let the outside fool u Not that it’s ugly just the outside doesn’t match the inside Old style hotel with updated interior The outside looks clean too Very nice painted No loud neighbors Would recommend to anyone The staff is super nice The only thing I didn’t like was we where charged extra for checking in early I was already renting five rooms Should of been charged extra for the business I was bringing

The staff was really helpful and friendly They served BISCUITS AND GRAVY in the morning!!! They also had the waffle maker, eggs, bacon, sausage, and all the other hotel normsI think cleanliness in the room could have been a little better

This is no 5 star hotel, but I enjoyed it and I would go backBe sure to check out the park on the way to the mall; there is this huge netted structure for climbing, with a slide, unlike anything I have seen beforeMy husband and daughter did itThe downtown area also has some good food, axe throwing, bars, etc

Christine Parsons

Because of the ONE STAFF member who was the ONLY staff on a Friday night! She was kind, courteous, and so nice to everyone considering she was alone We had to change rooms because we experienced a dirty floor in our first room, that also had stains on mattress pad She changed our room

And we appreciate that Cleaning is a challenge from the elevator to the pillows, and we paid extra for upgraded linens, I can’t imagine the standard bedding We won’t be back Bonus – Bed Bugs! I woke up with massive bites on my stomach area – painful and took 2 weeks to heal! Travelers BEWARE>

We were really excited to stay a night at the Indigo in Tuscaloosa but we are overall disappointed with our stayThe hotel has a very nice stylish look but upon further inspection, our room wasn’t adequately cleaned before our stay There was a certificate saying the room was cleaned by Kenyatta, however we found the previous guest’s hair on the shower wall, trash under the dresser, and the upholstered cube/footstool looked dirty

I saw room service tray left in the hallway for our entire stay Rooms were advertised as sound proof but that was not the case, you can hear people in the hallwayThe Lookout restaurant was okay The outside eating area was smaller than expected and no nice views at night Service was slow The burger was good and the crab dip was good as well but there’s no microwaves in rooms to heat up leftoversThe breakfast option was a very nice sit down service A drink is included and one entree option I tried an orange cranberry muffin and my husband got the pancakes Each entree came with fruit The pancakes were a much better value and tastier than just one pastry We enjoyed our breakfast and the serviceAt checkout, no one asked how our stay was Hotel Indigo was a poor value for the price and needs higher room cleaning standards

Jenn Plowman

We had such high hopes for our stay Unfortunately, we left with the unanimous decision not to returnThere were 4 of us- my husband and myself and also another couple (2 separate rooms)We were not taken by surprise by the inflated nightly rate with a huge concert going on in town

That’s actually why we were there also! But, for $320 a night, per room, we would’ve expected things like a microwave in our room or even a complimentary breakfast Neither were providedThe biggest disappointment was the fact that the restaurant and bar were closed when we returned from the concert We forfeited making food purchases at the concert thinking we would utilize the on-site restaurant/bar at Indigo I fully understand that this was a Thursday night but why shut them down at 10pm when the concert went on passed 11? Seemed like a huge missed opportunity for sales on Indigo’s part!!! There were even tons of people trying to get in for food/drinks by those who weren’t renting rooms, but just wanted to have some downtime post-concert That was such a let down and quite frankly, a dumb decisionThe bed was comfortable, our room was clean and the location was very convenient but for the price tag, we expected more!!

Emery Tillman

Best place to stay in Tuscaloosa!!! The restaurants are delicious, the service is great, and the rooms are clean and stylish The flatbreads are amazing

as well as, the spinach dip, crab dip, hummus, the black bean burger, and the lookout burger Sam provided us with great service at the rooftop restaurant! She was friendly and fun! The view in the rooftop restaurant is breathtaking! This is a must go even if you live here!

Just passing by but needed a fast rest to continue a journey This place had a nice room, very comfortable, great working air-conditioning Comfortable bed

Breakfast was very good especially the fresh fruits I particularly liked the biscuits My wife ordered an omelet, very good food The staff was friendly, professional, and attentive They are doing a great job Thank you all

L Stanley

This hotel is superb! Very nice rooms, comfortable, clean and accommodating Customer service was welcoming, friendly and professional Nice large parking area to enter & exit for large vehicles

The only reason this didn’t receive 5 stars is the lack of complimentary breakfast There is a nice lobby with food served and breakfast is $10 There are nice restaurants in close proximity for breakfast, lunch & supper

I’ve stayed here twice as a midway point driving between North Carolina and Texas Both times I have made a reservation with little notice and arrived quite late, and the staff have never taken issue I travel with my hypoallergenic cat who the staff are always eager to meet before I bring him upstairs

I like that on the pet deposit form they even ask for his name (yes, you do have to pay extra for a pet, but it is cheaper than at other hotels) The rooms are always impeccably clean You’ll never find a hair that isn’t yours, and the rooms are well decorated, modern, and comfortable I only sleep there but the downstairs amenities seem quite nice, if you’re eating there, grabbing a snack, or socializing Check out is simple and there is always well lit parking right in the front I will always use this hotel as my stopping point for future trips

Matt Cerf

The place is fine, but a lot of details are a little off, like no TV channel on the gym equipment (though they have a peloton bike) the toilet was running constantly

but the shower took a bit of jiggling to get goingBreakfast was good though Overall a good experience but the facility need a bit of attention

Caroline Lafferty

I stayed here from 7/10-7/15 We booked this hotel so we could visit the University of AlabamaPros:The hotel is close to the University of Alabama, restaurants, and shops

The staff is very friendly There is a large closet that was great to use, and the beds are comfortableCons:Our room was not very clean upon checking in There was hair in the sheets and popcorn in the bathroom There was no soap to wash our hands with The shampoo and conditioner in the shower was empty Our toilet ran for our entire stay We contacted maintenance, however the person who could fix the problem was not available The wifi is AWFUL, our computers would not work, and we were unable to use some of the features on the TV because of the wifi Maintenance equipment and laundry were constantly in the halls There are several shipping containers in the parking lots along with construction equipment I believe the hotel is undergoing much needed renovations I would hope that all of the above problems will be resolved with the updates
