Reviewing Home2Suites gives me mixed emotions because I’d love to keep this place a secret so I can stay here again in the future. I have a feeling once this hotel is “discovered” I won’t be able to get a reservation, which can be a real challenge in Tuscaloosa throughout the school year. Suffice it to say this is a gem of a hotel, and will always be my first choice in the future.
The hotel is new (as of April, 2015 I was told by management), located downtown, across the street from the new Embassy Suites. The check in process was quick and efficient and friendly. Self parking is around the back of the hotel. The elevators require you to use your room key to activate it (nice security touch). The room we were given (311) is HUGE, with 2 extremely comfortable queen beds (I am going to order the sheets they use–so soft), and a sofa sitting area. The wall opposite the beds is lined with built in cabinets/drawers and has the longest amount of counter space I’ve ever seen in a hotel. There is also a kitchen area with a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, and plates. The bathroom is sleek and modern, with a european style double flush button on the toilet. There are many nice touches: lots of electrical outlets for charging things, located at a close distance to the beds (no scrounging around looking for outlets), containers for recycling trash, and a curtain that can be pulled to separate the sitting area from the sleeping area. This is a great place for an extended stay if someone needs one. As I said, this will be my first choice on my next trip to Tuscaloosa.
