Guest Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 250 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Holiday Express ever Everything about this property says, WOW! I travel frequently for business and have spent as much as 45 weeks on the road in a single year. Holiday Inn Express is always my first choice for a number of reasons. Suffice to say that I have stayed at a lot of these properties. This is by far the best Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed at. Every member of staff was awesome from the moment I arrived until checkout. The room was great from the beds to the great water pressure in the shower. There were more choices for breakfast than I have ever seen before. I think staying at this hotel must have rubbed off on all the other guests as well, since everyone I interacted with seemed to be in a great mood. If you have to travel to Tuscaloosa for any reason, it would be crazy to not stay here. July 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nailed it This experience hooked me for any return visit to UA, even if it isn't the closest hotel to the campus, I wouldn't take a chance anywhere else.....every area of service was great and staff couldn't be more accommodating. Don't hesitate to stay at this hotel. July 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly Having lived in Tuscaloosa in the past for almost two decades, I was made to feel "back home" by the friendly and courteous interactions with hotel staff. Smiling, helpful faces can certainly make for a more enjoyable stay! July 20, 2015
