Reviewed 24 January 2005

This is a very nice hotel. Regarding the one person who complained about the location of the handicapped room, what they failed to notice or mention was that the handicap rooms are right by the BACK door, and there is handicapped parking within 10 feet of the back door.

I have stayed at this hotel every week for 2 months. The staff is great. The breakfast lady makes you feel at home every morning, and the desk staff say hi to me by name.

The rooms are good, and Wings is right next door if you wanna walk over to a sports bar. All in all a comfortable hotel.

If you come any where near Tuscaloosa, you must stay here!
Natalie, the GM took care of our every need during our stay.
The new Hampton breakfast is second to none, wonderful clean rooms and customer service you would expect at a 5 star resort!

The hotel is very clean. It is in a safe area. If you need no special attention probably a great place to stay. My family stayed here and requested a room near the door for a handicap relative. The hotel verbally promised to place our handicap relative in a room on the ground floor directly inside an entrance. When we arrived the room was as far from an entrace as one could possibly get. The general manager treated us like we had done something wrong when we complained. The staff was politely rude to us for the entire stay. The general manager was very unwilling to try to accomodate our handicap relative. What type of an establishment makes a verbal promise to a handicap person, and then does not follow through with it? It is one thing to make an honest mistake, and it is entirely another thing not to accept responsibility for that mistake. The hotel begrudgingly comped her room without the offer of an apology. If you need extra assistance stay somewhere else!!

We have stayed at this Hampton for about 10 years. They have recently redecorated and the rooms are very attractive. The staff there is always professional and helpful. I feel very safe and comfortable there. Great cookies and milk at night and nice breakfast in the mornings. One employee by the name of Joey recognizes us by name every time we are there. Our favorite place to stay when in Tuscaloosa.
