Thank you Candlewood for a great stay while I moved my daughter into the University. The hotel was clean and the staff was so friendly. I will be back for several weekends while my daughter is in college. I will recommend your hotel to everyone I know who travels to Tuscaloosa.

I stayed here for a week and didnt have any complaints. From the 24 our fitness center to the free laundry, everything about the hotel was efficient and easy. I work later hours than most and the fact that i could do my laundry and work out at 3 am made things a lot less complicated.

We enjoyed our stay with Candlewood. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and quick with our check in. They told us about places to eat and things going on in the area. Our room was clean and amazing for the price. We will definitely stay with them again. Overall we were very pleased with our stay.

Newer facility with pleasant staff. Good location relative to restaurants and interstate. Quiet rooms with good AC. Negatives are hotel brand related ~ no hot breakfast and no ice machines on floor. Only ice is freezer in room. Shower heads (my pet peave) are about a 2 on a 10 point scale.
