The staff was wonderful, check in and check out very quick. Stayed on the third floor in a suite. Queen bedroom and Double bed in the main room instead of sofa. Love this concept, we had four adults and this made it very nice. AC controls for bedroom and separate one for main room. Also there was a tv in...

Had a big problem with the billing. My insurance was paying for the rooms and they wanted a card on file for extra charges. The next Friday, they had charged my room for over a thousand dollars. Money was tight since I was remodeling so that took my bank account down to just a few dollars. I told them at...

I have stayed at this hotel twice on recent visits to the area for work. It is a new hotel with a friendly staff and clean, comfortable rooms with fully equipped kitchen areas for longer stays. The location makes it easily accessible off of highway 65 up on hill behind a shopping area walking distance to a variety of fast...

Booked a stay here in a pet friendly suite room as we were travelling through and it was very good. The staff was friendly, and helpful. Our reservation was spot on and we even received the room we preferred away from the elevators and on a high floor. The room had a good sized refrigerator and a nice built in...

I've stayed in Candlewood properties several times for long term assignments and they are great. However we used it as a base for family wedding party and not so great. Lack of breakfast meant everyone got scattered each morning. No breakfast area meant no where to congregate at end of day. We took over the tiny reception area at check-in...

The room was a good side. The pullout couch mattress was not comfortable, but they never are. The room had a full refrigerator, stove, and two flatscreen TVs. The coffee pot did not work. The hallways smelled like cigarette smoke. The room occasionally smelled of faint cigarette smoke on non-smoking floor. The hotel and room were clean.

Candlewood Suites is an absolute wonderful place to stay. This place was so clean and everyone who worked there was so courteous and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here, whether it's for one night or a week. They have a gym and laundry area as well as suites with full kitchens in them. You won't be disappointed at all.

The lobby area had me concerned when we first arrived. Not a very pleasant smell and was very simple. However, the room made up for the lobby. Spacious room and clean. Bed was too firm for my preference. WiFi never worked for either one of us, it's free and no code was required. Bathroom had cabinets, and plenty of room....

From the moment we arrived at the front desk until the moment we left, we enjoyed the friendly staff and the super clean, quiet hotel. The room was more than we expected and the price was right. We were facing the west, so saw a beautiful sunset and were surprised as a bonus.

This was a last of the minute choice to stay in Alabaster. Never stayed at a Candlewood Suites, but glad I did! The staff was awesome and the room was great. The bed was so comfortable and the water pressure was great. Even though I didn't use the kitchen it was well stocked and having a fridge was great too!...
