“wonderful location just off highway 280”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

loved the space in the studio suite. the kitchen had a 2 burner range (only one pot), a convection microwave and a full size refrigerator. The coffee maker was adequate, but only made a short pot. However, there is free coffee in the mini store in the lobby, which is available all day long. The unit has an in the room a/c unit, so we were able to set the temperature exactly where we preferred it. The long desk doubled as desk for my computer (free wi-fi in the room) as well as a dining table, with the two chairs provided. The room also had a recliner that sat next to the queen size bed which was perfect for viewing the flat screen tv. This is a good room at a wonderful rate.

Stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Birmingham one night and really enjoyed it. The hotel is only a few months old, is well equipped in the kitchen, had a very comfortable room and king sized bed, and the bathroom was roomy. The decorating is very tasteful. They have a mini store in the lobby, very convenient. This hotel is conveniently located off the highway with many restaurants only minutes away.

The customer service was excellent! The maintenance person was friendly as well. I left an item in my room I called back and it was promptly mailed to me. I will be looking for Candlewood every time I travel. I also had the opportunity to recommend them to someone else.

Had a great visit in Birmingham. The Suites are clean, in a great location and very nice. Extra hot water and coffee in your room. :) The cost was very reasonable, the staff was quick to respond to every request and very friendly. The suites have a gym, a laundry room and a small store you could purchase things like drinks and food to use in your fully equipped kitchen! Free Wi-Fe and a comfy office chair if you have to work or a large flat screen TV and recliner when it's time to relax.

It was our first stay at this hotel, we love EVERYHTING about this Candlewood Suites, we would recommend this hotel to everyone that visits Birmingham, AL.
The staff were very helpful & friendly, so is the guests, that's a plus!!!
The hallways were very bright, not dark & gloomy like other hotels we stayed at, which we stayed at different hotels in different cities EVERY WEEKEND!!! The smell were wonderful, smells like the dryer sheets just came out from the dryer. The room were perfect, love ALL the ammenities in the room, especially the full equip kitchen. Bed were very comfortable. My most favorite about this hotel is, they have designated areas for smokers, not like other hotels where the smokers stand right outside by the front door, this means ALOT to our non-smokers. Thank you CANDLEWOOD SUITES!!
We will try to stay at ALL CANDLEWOOD SUITES where is available!!!!

Room Tip: higher floor view to the road & restaurant down below, that's our opinion. We want the same...
