Verified Reviews of Best Western University Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very Satisfied"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Was here with a girls Fastpitch softball team. Donna, the manager, was so very sweet and helpful making sure we had the number of rooms we needed. They have an excellent breakfast, a large pool and everything was VERY clean. If anything was needed it was taken care of immediately. All the parents were very satisfied with our accommodations and if we come back to Tuscaloosa we will definitely stay here! Also, Rachel doubled checked to make sure everyone on the rooming list had their reservation confirmed.
