This is our first time staying at a Candlewood... it was a pleasant stay with no trouble at all and nothing but comfort when it comes to the suites. We only stayed one night, but we were impressed with the kitchenette. We could have clearly prepared meals right in the room. The loan closet is a nice feature for those... More

We are seasoned travelers who have been on the road for over 40 years. We try to stay at the Candlewood Suites whenever possible. The rooms are spacious, extremely clean and all the amenities you need or want. Staff are always gracious and knowledgeable. We have never had a problem with the hotels. This time we stayed in Homewood/Birmingham while... More

I survey roads so I am in a different hotel every night and on the road 8 months at a time without going home. This is one of the best CandleWood hotels that I have stayed in. My team has stayed there 2 other nights after the first visit. This CandleWood is very clean! Some CandleWood hotels have weird smells... More

This fairly new hotel is a welcome stay for any traveler. The staff are very accommodating and attentive to any request I made. The rooms are smart green friendly which means the lights and temperature are adjusted when you leave and come back into the room. However it is easy to forget your key when you leave it in the...

Although I often stay in IHG hotels [Holiday Inn, etc.], I had never stayed in a Candlewood, mainly because I thought the word Suites meant “limited to larger groups.” So I learned something: this was beautifully designed to accommodate everyone, from a single person to a whole athletic team! So here’s the drill: Staff—obviously proud of this newly-opened facility, they... More

Stole it online for $65/night and the room was exceptionally nice. Stayed there 3 years ago and it was very good. They have since remodeled and it is even better. Granite, fridge, dishwasher, stove, good beds. Rooms in that area are usually pretty pricey, unless you stay at a dump 10 miles away. - so if you can snag one... More

Stayed at this location in Suburb of Birmingham to visit family first weekend in March, 2013 - hotel recently opened mid February (2 weeks prior). First, we arrived VERY late on Friday night but front desk staff very kind and welcoming. HOWEVER, being Platinum Priority members we are usually welcomed and offered an upgrade in room at no additional charge... More

This property is the worst when it comes to customer service. Three quest stayed with two rooms booked. They refused to make accommodations for double beds in the second room. They said because of the third party booking they could not give me a double bed room. I even volunteered to pay the difference between the two and they refused.... More
