Booked a stay here in a pet friendly suite room as we were travelling through and it was very good. The staff was friendly, and helpful. Our reservation was spot on and we even received the room we preferred away from the elevators and on a high floor. The room had a good sized refrigerator and a nice built in... More

I've stayed in Candlewood properties several times for long term assignments and they are great. However we used it as a base for family wedding party and not so great. Lack of breakfast meant everyone got scattered each morning. No breakfast area meant no where to congregate at end of day. We took over the tiny reception area at check-in... More

The room was a good side. The pullout couch mattress was not comfortable, but they never are. The room had a full refrigerator, stove, and two flatscreen TVs. The coffee pot did not work. The hallways smelled like cigarette smoke. The room occasionally smelled of faint cigarette smoke on non-smoking floor. The hotel and room were clean.

Candlewood Suites is an absolute wonderful place to stay. This place was so clean and everyone who worked there was so courteous and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here, whether it's for one night or a week. They have a gym and laundry area as well as suites with full kitchens in them. You won't be disappointed at all.

The lobby area had me concerned when we first arrived. Not a very pleasant smell and was very simple. However, the room made up for the lobby. Spacious room and clean. Bed was too firm for my preference. WiFi never worked for either one of us, it's free and no code was required. Bathroom had cabinets, and plenty of room.... More

From the moment we arrived at the front desk until the moment we left, we enjoyed the friendly staff and the super clean, quiet hotel. The room was more than we expected and the price was right. We were facing the west, so saw a beautiful sunset and were surprised as a bonus.

This was a last of the minute choice to stay in Alabaster. Never stayed at a Candlewood Suites, but glad I did! The staff was awesome and the room was great. The bed was so comfortable and the water pressure was great. Even though I didn't use the kitchen it was well stocked and having a fridge was great too!... More

I was greeted & treated very well as the location of the hotel sits behind a very busy shopping center with plenty of things to do. Our first night we cooked in our room as my 16yr old daughter made fajitas with me for the first time - awesome. (ingredients came from Walmart a walking distance from the hotel). Overall... More

This was a fine hotel, clean, comfortable, friendly people. The breakfast was the normal, but quite adequate. The bathroom was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel and would return if ever in the area again.

My suite was very roomy, nice and clean, and the location of the hotel is away from major roads, so really quiet, but the location also made it rather inconvenient to restaurants if you prefer them next door or within walking distance, as I do. However, the hotel is situated behind a shopping center and within driving distance of a... More
