“Felt like home”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Tuscaloosa for three nights and every time we arrived it felt like home. All of the amenities made us feel so comfortable and the staff was very friendly. The free DVDs and games allowed us to have a fun night in at no extra cost. We will definitely be back next time we come to the area.

Thank you so much for your positive review! It's very nice to hear that you felt like home. Having the DVD library and the games for guests to borrow certainly helps the stay to seem more like home. We value your feedback. Thank you for sharing your experience with others.

I can always count on a Candlewood Suites no matter where I go. Our room was very clean and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room had a very nice layout to it. We had plenty of room to get in and out of the room. Our booking was spur of the moment but there were no issues at all! Will be back again!

Newer facility with pleasant staff. Good location relative to restaurants and interstate. Quiet rooms with good AC. Negatives are hotel brand related ~ no hot breakfast and no ice machines on floor. Only ice is freezer in room. Shower heads (my pet peave) are about a 2 on a 10 point scale.

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that our team was so pleasant and that you liked our location. Thank you for your feedback about the shower heads. I will discuss this with our maintenance engineer today. You mentioned no breakfast or ice makers. As we are an extended stay hotel, our long term travelers enjoy the privacy of cooking breakfast in their own room. I understand that a one night stay may have a different preference. Thankfully IHG has nine brands now, so there is a brand that perfectly fits every traveler. We hope you enjoyed Tuscaloosa. Thank you for your visit!

The staff at Candlewood in Tuscaloosa was wonderful. They made sure our stay was perfect. The ability to cook in our room also made our budget go much farther. I will stay there every time our travels take us through Alabama.

The Candlepower in Tuscaloosa was What I called home for sixth months. The staff made me feel at home, and they were friendly, even to a yankee like myself. The director of sales is good company as well, but she didn't ever take me out to see a Crimson Tide hockey game. Guess we'll have to make it a date next season. ;).

We had a great time in T-town! The ability to cook my own food while at the hotel was a great bonus. I had a special meal planned!

It was a nice little get away from the house, much needed relaxation!

Even when I'm only traveling for overnight stays I prefer to stay in extended stay hotels. This was a really clean hotel. The room smelled fresh. Great place. This one made me feel right at home. The grocery store across the street makes the location better so I was able to cook in my room.
