Stayed here for a week from Cali and loved it!! They keep everything very clean! Beds are so comfy and staff is very nice. Always see someone cleaning. The little gym and free laundry area is a really nice touch too. Road noise is a bit loud but not too bad. Needed the extra noise for my sleep anyway. Will... More

My mom and I stayed here when she visited me in Tuscaloosa last month. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly, but we found it to be incredibly loud, which made it hard to sleep at night. The full size refrigerator in the room made noises all night and made a loud boom about every hour which would... More

We had a one bedroom suite and it was very nice and roomy, plenty of space for 3 adults and a small dog. The pull-out sofa bed mattress leaves a lot to be desired as they all do but the bed in the bedroom was nice and comfortable. The sheets that go on the bed are awesome, would love to... More

Thank you for your great review! It's nice to hear how much you enjoyed your large suite with it's comfortable bedding and towel collection. I am glad your dog was able to accompany you on your trip as well. We are a pet-friendly hotel, but there is a fee for bringing your pet along. Each pet-occupied room receives a thorough... More

Our family stayed here while visiting UA for a home game. We had a great experience! David and Zach were so friendly and the hotel was very clean. We were greeted, after a long drive, with hot coffee, and a huge variety of things in the cupboard area. It is convenient to campus with taxi services available and we will... More

We stayed at this hotel since our favorite was booked and I cannot understand why this place is rated so high. It was clean but for the cost, I would expect a comfortable bed to sleep in. I kept rolling to the middle of the bed since there was a low spot in the center of the mattress.

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
