“Fine for a night when passing thru”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Located across the road from a large Sams club and Walmart and next to a KFC this hotel was easy to find. We arrived at 7.30pm and our prepaid room was waiting for us. There was plenty of secure parking and the rooms were well sound proofed. There was coffee in the lobby which was appreciated after a long drive.
The rooms are a little tired. You are getting what you pay for. The bed was fine and a large television with multiple channels worked well. Excellent shower. There were no towels in our room but this was remedied quickly.
Breakfast is coffee, juice, instant oatmeal/grits, bagels and pastries, cereal and milk. Quite a satisfactory start to a road trip.
The manager is charming, professional and friendly. The interaction with him at breakfast is what pushes my review from average to very good. Thank you James,

I stayed 8 nights for business and was shocked by the quality. The rooms were clean and bug free. Staff was very helpful! Would recommend this hotel to all.

Staff was very professional and courteous on a very busy football game weekend. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good.

Days Inns kind of run the gamut, this one is squarely in the top 10 percentile. The manager is on property 7 days a week and he really understands his clientele. He knows most of them as they're repeat visitors. The cleanliness, the attention to detail are palpable when you open the door. This is no ordinary Days Inn. The property is right off the 20 and is an easy drive or cab-ride to downtown Tuscaloosa where there are great eateries and drinkeries including a Mellow Mushroom. Property is walking distance to Walmart, KFC, Hardees, Sonic, McDonalds, Subway, etc. The property offers hot breakfast on the weekends too. This property delivers, you'll be glad you came.

Room Tip: I was there 3 nights, each evening offered a brilliant sunset. If you're into that, request a We...
