The title aptly describes my feeling about Candlewood Suites. We paid $155 a night plus tax for the room. Don't expect a free breakfast given its "Suites" category, and there are cooking facilities in the room. The facilities weren't all that impressive, but they were adequate and clean. Service was okay but not exceptional. Overall, Candlewood Suites was okay, but... More

Traveling from College Station, Tx to Tuscaloosa, Al for the Texas A&M game we booked a last minute hotel. Only a one bed suite was available and we were not going to complain. Upon arrival we were exhausted and ready to rest. The front desk agent Zachary was most helpful. He was very attentive and excellent at customer service. He... More

We have stayed here a few times before. They are pet friendly and the staff is always courteous. It was a last minute stay and there was one room left with only one bed. Luckily they were able to bring down a roll away single bed for me. It is conveniently located and not too expensive. I would definitely recommend... More

When my husband and I travel to the city this is the only place we will stay. The Candlewood is very clean, smells great, and has a relaxing environment. The front desk staff is accommodating and friendly. The suites are spacious, the exterior looks great, and the rooms are keep up to date (not run down like some places there).... More

The title of this hotel on trip advisor was "Candlewood Suites Tuscaloosa University". They led me to believe this hotel was near the University of Alabama when it was actually 4 miles away. The hotel sits along a highway and isn't close to any restaurants. I had to walk 800 meters to a Chilis to get some food and was... More
