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.

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... More

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.

Very disappointed after reading such good reviews. The room size was nice along with the kitchen, but that was about it. To begin, the room stunk like Thai food upon entering. It went away after turning on the AC. The bed was supposed to be a king, but was queen. After accepting these minor flaws we went to sleep. The... More

Great location, easy freeway access, close to campus. In all my travels, hotel staff is what sets the difference in experience. I only review great stays and this was another one. Had two rooms here, over the weekend and everyone was very happy. Friendly and efficient staff, nice room layout and will definitely stay here next time were here!
