Explore Hotel

Situated near the amphitheater, location is key when traveling for business or pleasure, which is why our Northport hotel has everything guests need for a great trip including a prime location.

The University of Alabama brings many out-of-towners to the area, and our friendly staff reveres southern hospitality, treating guests like part of the family the minute they arrive. With the campus only a few minutes away, its easy to take in a legendary football game or the lecture of the year, or for visiting faculty and staff to enjoy an extended stay in a spacious, quiet room. Whether it is business, academics or a vacation that brings you here, depend on our staff to make you feel welcome.

College football is a huge draw, and theres no better way to ring in the autumn months than with a home game or two. We also cater to groups and give a warm welcome to rival teams and fans of U of A alike. Our convenient location close to Tuscaloosa and downtown also makes us popular with travelers who are looking for something more than games and academics. Slip away and enjoy the nightlife or explore the bustling Tuscaloosa area. Both are a brief drive away.

Summer camp is another big draw of the area, both at the University as well as other nearby locations. At our Northport hotel, we make it easy to access the town as well as the great outdoors just a few miles away. For summer camp parents, you can enjoy a longer stay at our property while the kids make the most of their summer in Alabama. Luxurious bedding, modern accommodations and the most helpful staff in town help make your summer one for the record books.

From business trips to family road trips, staying at the right Northport hotel can make all the difference. Enjoy the fall foliage or simply spend your summers relaxing at one of the nearby water recreation sites. Campus events happen year-round, too.

Book your next stay at the Best Western Catalina Inn and enjoy a fantastic value! Enjoy your stay.

Overpriced and under impressed!

This motel was unimpressive. We paid too much. We got a sniking room but requested a non smoking room. They wouldn't change it without charging us $75 more per night. The desk managers in the morning ... more

We apologize that you were unhappy with your stay. We remind our guests that they should always check their reservation confirmation to ensure proper room type. The room you booked was a single queen, and the only non-smoking rooms we had available were doubles. Because of high occupancy and special events going on that weekend the price difference was significant. We hope you will consider staying with us again on your next visit to the area.

The Best Western Catalina Inn strives to provide great accommodations for our guests. We are truly sorry that your experience did not live up to the standards to which we hold ourselves. While we have no control over the design of the corporate website, we encourage all travelers to check their confirmation to assure proper room assignment. If we had a non-smoking room available we would have gladly given it to you. The hotel provides a grilling area for guests and they are encouraged to use it during their stay. We have not received any other complaints about guests grilling, or about the group you mentioned. The property is lighted throughout and monitored 24 hours a day via CCTV cameras. We have had zero incidents regarding guest safety at the Best Western Catalina Inn. All pictures of the hotel on the website are accurate and were taken on location. Any claim that the photos are not of the property are false. Our free breakfast consists of hot and cold items including: biscuits and gravy, cheese omelets, bacon, sausage, waffles, bagels, toast, muffins, pastries, yogurt, fruit, juice, milk, and coffee. We are sorry you did not find anything that suited your tastes, and we always welcome any guest suggestions for improving our breakfast options. One aspect that we never receive complaints about is our housekeeping, so I was surprised to read your complaint about the sheets. We will discuss the issue with our housekeepers to prevent future occurrences. Again, we are sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay. Our positive reviews and the reputation we have built is what led you to try the Best Western Catalina Inn, and we do not take that lightly. We hope that the next time you are in the area you will consider staying with us again.
