A nice hotel with attractive well furnished suites. A little tight depending on which room you are in, but over all a good value and location of games in Tuscaloosa. I enjoyed the morning gathering for breakfast and refreshments.

We have stayed here three times in the last year when travelling with our dog. Each time, we felt that the rooms were adequate and the hotel had a nice pet relief area including waste bags. One thing to watch for is the rates. Be sure to check on line because the nightly rates vary WIDELY, based on college activities... More

My housing was unavailable from August- October of 2014, during this time I was given a room at the Candlewood Suites. I was brand new to the area and did not know anyone.

Pulled in late one night this week on way home for a funeral. Front desk staff very nice. Room was clean, spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Good parking and well lighted. Close to lots of eateries. No breakfast but they do have a pantry. Pet friendly.
