The hotel is convenient and adequate for those who are on the road and just need an overnight stay. It's a clean, friendly, and most importantly, it's safe place to rest. We give Best Western Two Thumbs UP!

Pros: It was okay for a motel
Cons: Cleanliness in rooms
Location: good location but hard to find at night if you are arriving late

The hotel was fine but we had a problem with a breaker giving us a blackout in our room and the problem was solved with a room change but no apology for our inconvenience and no adjustment to our price. For the way the problem was handled I would never go back to that motel or recommend it. Sorry.

The motel could use a remodel but was clean. Our door to the bathroom in our room was very hard to open after closing at one time of my son had not been outside the door to turn knob and push I would have been locked inside the bath room

Overall, everything was good, EXCEPT the heat wasn't working in my room, which made it difficult to sleep at night. Otherwise, everything else was good.

Room was as expected, given game day weekend in Tuscaloosa. Hotel is definitely older but staff are very pleasant and check-in/check-out process was quick and easy. Would definitely stay here again on a game day weekend.

Minor Problem

Pros: Full hot breakfast, free Wi-Fi, nice restaurant within easy walk..
Cons: Replace multi-outlet electrical cord in Room 140. An apparent short caused lamp to flicker until the strip was stabilized by the weight of the alarm clock placed on it.
Location: An easy walk to O'Charlie's restaurant.
