I was on a business trip to Ann Arbor and needed a place to stay for several weeks. I therefore wanted an extended-stay hotel. After doing extensive research on such places in and near Ann Arbor - including on TripAdvisor! - I chose the Candlewood Suites, and I'm glad I did. In light of other extended-stay hotels I've stayed in,... More

Our first time at a Candlewood hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A large parking lot is available at no cost and check-in was easy. There is no lobby to speak of... just a desk with employees behind it checking people in and answering phones. Our room was very large, newly renovated and had everything we could have needed....

Stayed in this hotel back in 2010, it was the first Candlewood I ever tried and the one that got me hooked on the Candlewood brand, since then I have spent countless nights in Candlewoods all across the USA. I'm happy to report this hotel is still in great condition, in fact it appears to have gone through a new... More

I would like to give this property a better review. The room was nice. The property is conveniently located to all that Ann Arbor has to offer. The reason for the low rating is the staff. After checking out and arriving at our next destination we realized we had left 2 iPhone chargers and one iPad charger plugged into the... More

The front desk staff person was very nice and efficient. I like the nice size rooms, and they've been updated and are very clean and comfy. The kitchen is great with a fridge, and stove and microwave and even popcorn. Free coffee and a nice little pantry if you just need a little something to eat. I'll definitely use this... More

I will preface this review by stating that I typically stay at Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn when I travel for business simply because you always know what you will get with these brands. Due to a promotion IHG was running I decided to branch out during a recent stay in Ann Arbor. I was pleasently suprised by this... More

Stayed here for the Winter Classic and it was great!! Clean and updated room, the bed was comfortable and the shower was spotless which was a nice change from the usual run down hotels. The snacks/drinks were overpriced but it helped to have them there when ordering a pizza on New Years Eve was impossible. The staff was very helpful,... More

We stayed here because it accepted pets and because of the kitchen facilities in the room. This hotel was perfect for us because we could leave our cat in the room while we were gone during the day without having to worry that housekeeping would mistakenly let her out.

The hotel is newly constructed. If you are looking for simple affordable hotel in Ann Arbor, this one is one of them. The frontdesk personnel is friendly. The downside is there is no complimentary breakfast available.This is not a Hilton so expectations should be different. The rooms are rather small but cooking facilities are available.

Parking lot paved, sidewalk finished. Location of the hotel is great. Clean establishment. Front office personnel were friendly. Free laundry. If you are in the area, looking for simple, affordable and customer friendly hotel this is the place.
