Stayed here while moving our daughters into their dorms at the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE!) last week. Incredibly positive experience across the board - from the cleaning crew and front desk to the GM (Cheree Slaten) and Director of Sales (Traci Channell) - as they handled our complex multi-room and -night stay. We are regular visitors to T-Town and... More

We stopped here overnight and were pleased with the comfortable accommodations, super-friendly staff (Natanya especially), and clean room. I thought the hotel was brand new but it is about five years old. Rooms have kitchenettes, desks, etc. This would work for an overnight or an extended stay. No breakfast, but with a fridge, you can bring your own.

This is the 5th different Candlewood I've stayed at and it was great. Best stocked pantry of the 5 I've stayed at. First one that does light touches in the rooms everyday along with the weekly cleaning of the room. Awesome staff and very close to all the restaurants.

We stayed here while passing through Tuscaloosa with our two kids. Staff was very courteous and check in took maybe one minute. The kids were excited to see that they had board games that could be checked out from the front desk, as well as a pool. There is also a little convenience area where you can purchase microwave meals,... More
