Football season is upon us, and those in the Tuscaloosa area knows what that means: an influx of visitors and limited hotel rooms.  Well, that's steadily changing.

In recent weeks, there has been news of hotels being built; but one that has slipped through the cracks isn't a new build at all.  In fact, it's a renovation and re-branding of a longtime structure.

Conveniently located near Interstate 20/59, the Red Roof Plus features standard rooms with refrigerators and microwaves, but the hotel also has suites!

In addition, continental breakfast will be offered in the dining area near the front desk.  When asked, the hotel manager said the average room rate would be very affordable.  But you should ask for yourself.
