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

The hotel's staff was extremely accommodating and friendly for my brief stay. David was excellent with my requests in the evening. The room was quiet, clean, and had all that you come to expect at a hotel. I would recommend for anyone looking for a clean, well priced place to sleep at.
