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, it’s 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 there’s 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.
