This was a nice hotel and conveniently located off the highway. It's very close to a good barbecue restaurant. The only problem that I encountered was an alleged phone call from corporate stating that I was entitled to a refund and that they needed my credit card info. Sounded like a scam, so be careful!

Very upscale & modern! I was expecting a mini kitchenette and got a full size kitchen with full size refrigerator. Extremely great deal for the price. The front desk staff was very hospitable. The rooms were spacious and clean. This hotel provides free DVD movies at the front desk for guests use absolutely free and no limit. The best part... More

I could have stayed a week. The room was smooth with a DVD microwave and flat screen TV. The honor system store had great supplies. There is a Walmart in the parking lot. The after noon front desk person had the patience of job.

We had 6 rooms for bridesmaids to stay. Everything was exactly as I requested! The gift baskets I left for each girl were put in their rooms and were just as I left them. The price was certainly nice too!

The hotels' location was very good for our purposes, however, it would be difficult to find your way there without GPS or knowledge of the area. We have stayed in a different Candlewood in Birmingham in a queen suite and the bedroom was a separate room from the living/kitchen area. At this property, it is all one room and not... More

The hotel is quite easy to see from the main road but the actual entrance wasn't well signposted but as the parking was free no need to dwell on getting there. We were very warmly welcomed by Gabby. Having checked in she gave us lots of information about the hotel, all pretty standard. But after she gave us directions to... More

Stayed at this hotel last week while attending a conference. I didn't realize when I made the reservation that this is "an extended stay hotel" and does not serve a continental breakfast so travelers need to be aware of that. There was a small kitchenette in the room with a two burner stove top but no oven, a microwave, refrigerator... More

Needed a quiet place to study. Since this is the only hotel in my home town, I decided to give it a try. Rates are very reasonable considering you get a suite. Microwaves, dishwasher, dishes and full size refrigerator in every room. Very quiet. Although it resides behind a major shopping area, and considering the police presence in Alabaster, this... More

This is not a review of the hotel property per se (although I have stayed there before). I wanted to commend an employee who went, in mmy opinion, above and beyond for a priority club member. I needed to fax (yeah, who does that anymore?) some papers to my financial institution. I had long since got rid of my fax... More

My wife and I just stayed three nights for a wedding. The room was clean and neat and stocked with everything we need. The only reason I'm not giving it a five star rating is because the final recliner is pretty worn. We accidentally left a blanket on the bed and when we called about it the staff immediately acknowledged... More
