Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place I enjoyed my stay and the staff is very nice. I would like to see more workout equipment for the guest. December 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consistently good service and value Clean, comfortable, convenient and professional service personnel make time spent here totally enjoyable. Surprisingly very little violation of the no smoking criteria and staff is very responsive and friendly. December 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So much more than expected This hotel was great for my family during the Thanksgiving Holiday. It is conveniently located off 280, yet very quiet. It was close to my family. The room was very clean, and the staff was very nice. And oh, we had a full kitchen, including a fridge that we could put our Thanksgiving Dinner leftovers in. December 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION The hotel is located slightly off Hwy 280, but is accessible to many types of stores for shopping and dining. I have stayed at this location more than a few times and I have never been disappointed. This particular visit; however the bathroom shelves needed a good dusting and the floors needed vacuumed, as there were dog food pebbles on the floor next to both sides of the bed. December 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff and room We had the pleasure of staying at the Candlewood Inn on Nov 21st, 2013 and it was a great stay. The staff was so very very nice, very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and spacious. It was really nice to be able to walk down the hall and be greeted by the staff and asked if we needed anything. I do not believe we could have asked for a better place to stay. Thank you so much Candlewood staff for going above and beyond. It was very appreciated. I will definitly stay there again! November 27, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Layout and location Room was a long way from elevator. Location miles from interstate. But nice being next to restaurants. There was a wheel to spin for rewards members to get special stuff but I as not offered a chance to do it. November 26, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great value but you get what you pay for OK staff but it has it's issues. The fridge did not make ice & the lobby was unbearably hot. November 24, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable stay and clean I stayed there 10/26/2013 and when I got there the young lady told me they had no rooms available without checking my reservation even after I told her I had my reservation number, which was weird to me. Then another couple came behind me and she told them the same thing without checking their reservation as well so I told her to check with someone in upper management because there were no more rooms in the city due to magic city classic in birmingham and I traveled over 3 hours and nowhere to stay. She finally done so and got me the room but it was worth it, rooms clean, comfortable, and nice. So you get a great room for a great price! The down side of this is better customer service needed for the night shift and early morning shift. October 30, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice price and location I stayed two days with my infant son. The room was clean and well stocked with home items such as silverware and glasses. The refrigerator was full size and a nice surprise. The bathroom was clean and had plenty of room for my items. It was a decent room and the hotel didn't jack its prices up for the race fans that were in town. Its location was nice and quite and away from the traffic, but close enough to places to eat. I had no issues with the staff or any other guest. The only thing that I did not like was that you could tell it use to be a smoking room, it had a smell in the carpet. It wasn't horrible, but was noticeable. I will stay here again and I do recommend this hotel if you are in the area. It was a great value and i had a nice stay. October 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly service and very clean We were very pleased with our stay. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. I would recommend this location to anyone looking to stay for one night or even an extended stay. We will stay at this location in the future. October 23, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice location but staff was lacking in personality. All was good but staff seemed indifferent. I felt like I was interrupting something else they needed to do. I didn't feel like an important guest. Pillows could use some improvement. October 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Delightful three day stay Just about all you could ask for - clean, inexpensive, functional and comfortable rooms. The employees were helpful, pleasant and available. Will stay again when in the area and recommend to all. October 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly recommend I have used this Candlewood Suite on 2 occasions and have received excellent service each time. October 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smb Stayed here 7 months. Good location with many stores and restaurants nearby. Staff very nice from front desk to housekeeping TV channel selection could be better September 27, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nice room, stinky lobby and first floor Dealt with 2 employees. 1 woman was nice and professional. The man that checked us out was on his cell phone the entire time , very unprofessional and treated me as an inconvenience to his personal call. Rooms were nice and clean. Refrigerator had seen better days, but functional. The lobby and hallways on the first floor smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. The stench was awful and was strong all four days we were there. If you aren't a smoker, and a lover of inside pets, you definitely do not want to stay at this property. I love candle wood suites and Hoover, AL but I will not return to this one. September 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything you need is in the room! Room was great! Had refrigerator , ice maker, stove, microwave, comfortable bed and nice tv! Great location outside of the city. I recommend this to anyone! September 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice Hotel was very clean and modern. Dishes and pots pans stove coffee pot and toaster all clean and ready for you. Stove top great but doesn't heat to frying temperature really well. Bathroom with deep tub.enough room for your makeup and things. Plenty of clean towels with a big mirror. Bed warm layered clean and fresh. TV moves for viewing enough light Great desk/island area Justin case you want to work Free wifi great signal Close to all shopping strips.. anything you want its there within 5 minutes Quiet area, great parking around the hotel. Cupboard excellent for snacks Great gym for a quick pick me up And free washer dryer............Outstanding Stay August 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pet Friendly hotel and great service We enjoyed our stay here very much. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. This hotel is close to everything. One of the only clean and nice hotels that allows pets in Birmingham! We would definitely stay here again :) August 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Visit to see Grand Kids We are very pleased we chose Candlewood to stay this visit. Great facility and a good value with all the room. Stayed another hotel last trip and it does not compare. We were able to have the girls over and with all the seating room and TV's no one was cramped. The kitchenette saved us tons for lunches and made a great place to have birthday cake for one of the girls. We'll be back! August 18, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not the cleanest Room was recently renovated....except for the mattress. Ants crawling in bathroom and on sheets of bed. Bed linen was not changed prior to our stay. Stains on pillow cases, blood stain on sheet near head and hair on sheets. Reported and fixed promptly. Although new carpet throughout, "old" smell remained in hallways and elevator. Lobby had a VERY strong air freshener. We stayed as simply a place to sleep on our way to vacation. Honestly, if the room wasn't free (used reward night), probably would have moved to a different hotel. August 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay This was an excellent location. IT was quiet and allowed me to get a good nights rest. August 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TRUE COMFORT I have stayed here several times while on business in Birmingham. This hotel comes the closest to any other in the area for having all the comforts of home!! An additional perk, they have just added new recliners that you want to take home because they are so comfortable! August 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TRUE COMFORT This hotel offers ALL the comforts of home. I have been staying here a few nights a week for several months now when in Birmingham for business. During that time they have made several changes that continue to increase the comforts of this hotel including new bedding and an awesome new recliner. August 1, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rather pay more for better hotel Stayed for a week because of the reviews. Wish I never made the reservation. Room smelled like mildew and smoke. Internet barely worked and the bed was itchy (still feel skin itching). I would rather pay the extra money to stay somewhere nicer. If you don't mind a smelly room with no internet access, then this might be your place. I also found a TICK in my bathroom. Yes a tick. Bad part was I complained over the internet and never received a call back or response. July 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding as usual! This review actually spans over several months. I travel with work and stay here quite often. The service and quality of my stays have been second to none. I have stayed over 30 different nights over the past 9 - 12 months, and have never had an experience that wasn't of the upmost professionalism. The hotel and rooms are always clean, and might I add very comfortable. The staff and service is professional, fun, and they all go out of their way to make sure I am we'll taken care of. When you compare these things to the price you will find that you literally can't do better than Candlewood Suites. I applaud management on a job well done! This is one of the best teams I have ever encountered in this industry. I highly recommend visiting to everyone and anyone looking to book a room in Birmingham. The location is perfect! You are within 5 - 10 minutes from many sites such as downtown nightlife, The Summit, & The Galleria. Another 5 minutes and you can be at the BJCC or The Amphatheater. There is a very simple shortcut from this location that affords you the ability to get to these locations while avoiding the high traffic areas. A+++! If you don't stay here you are really missing out! Derek July 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed clean room great service Very nice staff, great rooms would stay here again. July 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice room at a reasonable price. I travel for a living and Candlewood Suites has many amenities that served me well. The bed was comfortable, there was a great work station, a kitchen and more. All at a reasonable rate. Several restaurants are nearby. I have found a home away from home when staying in Birmingham. It would also be ideal for a family stay. Business77 July 14, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Good There was a hugh dead roach on the floor in our room on the 3rd floor, the hallway reeked of smoke, and the hotel in general needs an update including the mattress and pillows. Did not recognize me as a platinum member. May 20, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Non-Smoking Hotel yet a smoker's paradise My wife and I stayed at this hotel recently and were very disappointed. The room was decent and the staff was reasonably nice. However, there was a smoker on the second floor. We notified management but they said they couldn't find out where the smoker was. I didn't really see any attempts to remedy the situation such as going door-to-door or spraying an air freshener. The problems got worse after we complained. That was unacceptable. May 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place and beautiful area We stayed at this hotel since we had tickets to Talladega Race. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. The only thing we didn't like was that they allowed smoking in some rooms but people smoked in the hallway. Our room never smelled like that but when you opened the door you got a nice air of smoke. I would recommend putting all the smokers on the top floor. Joe's Crab Shack was below us in walking distance which was awesome. Located in a very nice area. Will most definitely stay there again!
