Best hotels in Gadsden area
A good number of national chains known for their high comfort and cleanliness standards are scattered around the area including the following:
Also worth considering are the Gadsden Inn & Suites and the Red Roof Inn. The Gadsden Inn is a 1970s-era property, but it’s currently in very good condition. The Red Roof Inn is near the shores of the Gadsden portion of Neely Henry Lake.
Downtown stay rating
3/10. None of the hotels listed above are in the city’s downtown. Joggers or people who enjoy city hiking could enjoy going places on foot from the riverfront Gadsden Inn & Suites. It’s only two blocks from the historic downtown found on Broad Street. Some of the riverside parks, such as The Riverwalk at Coosa Landing, are also within sidewalk hiking or jogging distance of that hotel.
The nearest vacation rentals on vrbo.com are 1.6 miles south of the historic downtown.
Other lodging options
Junior college sports at Gadsden State Community College include men’s and women’s basketball, men’s tennis and women’s volleyball. A cross country team will start competing in fall 2022. Men’s baseball and women’s softball, which were discontinued in 2011 and 2016, respectively, are expected to return in 2023 or 2024.
