“Better hotel than what you expect for the rate”
Reviewed 14 October 2010

We got a really great rate while coming to see U. of Alabama and I didn't expect much of the hotel due to the rate. However, the hotel was great and the people that worked there were amazing. You get way more than would be expected.

Recently stayed at this property during a business trip to area. Nothing flashy but no real problems either.

What you would expect from a Fairfield in this price range.

Drove 9 hours from TX & since we were making good time, skipped the pleasant stay we'd had @ Vicksburg Fairfield Inn & made reservation while on the road for Tuscaloosa. Amanda gave excellent directions to "I can see it, but I can't get there" location! Sat down on the bed to remove my shoes & nearly fell off, the support was so Gone. No better anywhere else on the bed....All Night Long! Bathroom door squeaked, but was overpowered by big trucks through the night on nearby Interstate. Decided not to swim as pool was various colors of Murky. Elevator noisy & precarious, chipped & peeling. Usual breakfast selection of appropriate temperature and supply, in a tiny crowded room. Got that 1/2 right! So we enjoyed local IHOP instead. AND we paid $15.00 more for this room than at any of the 6 FI's we stayed in in the last 8 weeks in major & medium cities.

My favorite hotel was sold out so I tried this one as it is next door. I didn't realize that Fairfield Inn is a Marriott hotel. Let me tell you that everything was perfect especially the bed! The hotel wins and saved me alot of money. Service great, front desk great and General Manager was so nice, I couldn't believe she was checking people in all the making us feel welcome.

I try to stay here or at the Courtyard next door because they are near several restaurants and the freway. It's a really nice and cozy place. The beds are comfy, the room is big enough, and it's easy to get to. As I said, great place.

Reviewed 31 January 2008

This older hotel is still clean and in good taste. The facility is maintained and kept very well.

It's a step into the 1990's but for the money, it's a value.

Keep expectations low, it's not a Hampton Inn.

No dining without driving, and not a large selection at this exit of the interstate.

It's convenient to downtown Tuscaloosa and the University(10 minute drive).
