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

Bathroom toilet and shower were filthy. Sheets looked as if they hadn't been changed, dust all over furniture, unfriendly staff and dog feces all over grounds. I would not stay here again or suggest anyone to stay here.

Oh behalf of the staff at Candlewood Suites, we sincerely apologize for any inconveniences you experienced at the hotel. We take great pride in our staff''s attention to detail and this is one of less than a handful of poor housekeeping reviews we have ever received in our 5 years operating. However, one poor review is one is too many.... More

Recently had reason to spend one night at Candlewood Suites. We arrived late at night and everyone we came in contact with was extremely nice, friendly and helpful. The only reason for a 4 out of 5 rating is that the bed in the room we stayed in was extremely hard and the floor in the kitchen area was sticky.... More

Hi Parrothead43 and thank you for your feedback. I am familiar with this situation and we did look into your floor issue after you departed. As it turns out, it was the cleaners that were used on the floors. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and the cleaners have since been switched out. We are happy you enjoyed your stay...

This hotel is like home away from home. Hotel Staff makes it a point to know you by name. Every guest is important to them and treated like family. Your comfort and safety is taken seriously. They have a well stocked pantry. If forgot something at home they probably have it. Its a great place to stay.
