“Wonderful stay....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Our stay at this hotel was a breath of fresh air. The staff was so welcoming, the rooms were clean, and the beds were super comfortable. The location was great. We would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Tuscaloosa and I can't see us staying anywhere else for future visits.

Beautiful property and excellent staff. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating.
I'm super picky about hotel room cleanliness, our room gave me nothing to fuss about! We will definitely be coming back to Candlewood next time we're in Tuscaloosa!

My stay was very comfortable - the staff was so friendly and helpful. My room was very clean and it had everything I needed already in the room. Everyone made me & my family feel welcomed. They even gave us two rooms right next to each other so we could spend time with our family that also traveled in for the weekend.

This hotel was by far a reward for me after a long drive and a week of soccer. It was good to walk in the hotel lobby that was clean and refreshing.. My room was very accommodating the staff was very helpful as well as the guest who were very friendly... It is conveniently located near the University (10-15 min away from the soccer fields)as well as Restaurants. I will defiantly be back this Candelwood in Tuscaloosa.

We really appreciate your wonderful review! You mentioned our proximity to the University of Alabama. Yes, it's only 3 miles away - very convenient! We had several families who stayed with us during the soccer camp, and everyone seemed to have a great week. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next visit to Tuscaloosa.

Candlewood Suites provided great service and was very welcoming. The environment was warm and inviting with a positive atmosphere. Convient snack shop had met the need multiple times as well as other facilities. Candlewood Suites was overall an outstanding experience.
