We stayed at the inn for 2 nights while in town to attend a wedding. We rented both rooms in the cottage, while the rest of the family rented the 2 rooms in the main house. This was our 1st stay at a Bed & Breakfast and our entire experience was wonderful. Mary's breakfasts (especially the belgium waffles) were absolutely...

This was a nice comfortable place to stay. Breakfast was good and plenty. There's wi-fi Available. The negative would be that if you are picking up trucks and on foot like I am there is no restaurant in area that will deliver food to the inn. The closest restaurant was about a 1 mile walk. The negative really has nothing...

My husband and I enjoyed our recent stay at Columbus Street Inn and look forward to returning Christmas Eve. We stayed in the cottage and found it very convenient to have a full kitchen since we were preparing food for Thanksgiving dinner at my mother's house. The bedrooms were comfortable, well outfitted and everything was in top-notch condition. I don't...

This place is quaint and beautiful. Decorated in wood and clean whites, not overdone, it certainly the most charming type of vintage. The 3 course breakfast and service will make you wonder how they get away with their affordable prices! The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and roomy enough to give you the privacy and tranquility one needs on a...

We stayed at the Columbus Street B&B last weekend for a football game and really enjoyed our stay. Mary and Ben were wonderful hosts, the house we stayed in was clean and comfortable and Mary's breakfast was out of this world. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Tuscaloosa area, this place is greatly worth your...

The host at Columbus Street Inn could not have been any nicer. Our room was nice and the breakfast was delicious. As parents of a University of Alabama student we have found the perfect place to stay when we visit our son. The inn is located about an hour north of Tuscaloosa in a quiet town. Easy to find and...

The Columbus Street Inn is a nice place to stay. It is in a good location close to town. Mary and Ben are the nicest people you would ever want to meet. Breakfast is served at 7:30 each morning.
