Stayed 3/28. We've found Candlewood Suites to be hit or miss with some better than others. This was a very good one. Plenty of free parking and a friendly, efficient check in by the desk clerk who seemed to take pride in their hotel. Room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Full size appliances, good furniture and work space were... More

The rooms are very clean. It is a newer hotel so everything is very up to date. My husband and I stayed for almost a week and it was the best value for us, we were able to cook dinner every night in the room, and they allow pets. Plus the staff is super friendly if you need anything and... More

For those not familiar with the brand, Candlewood properties are designed for more of a long-term stay than an overnight stay. At most if these type properties, the linens are changed weekly, no free breakfast, there is a stove, dishes are provided, etc. Many of the reviews show negativity due to the reviewers lack of research. Upon booking the room... More

After our vacation we had a lot of laundry piled up and we were so surprised to see they had free laundry offered! That really helped us keep our vacation costs down. They had 3 washers and 3 dryers, that were in... More

Shannon and Wynette were wonderful. The heat was killer that day but the selection of drinks in the cupboard really helped. Our king suite was perfect. Great shower after a long day on the bike. Right across the street is the Harley dealership. We stayed two nights to dehydrate on our way home to Houston. Superb bed! At $74/night it... More

I was traveling with pets and selected Candlewood because they are pet friendly. My dog has a full show coat, he is a Cocker Spaniel. The potty area for pets is tiny, gated and on an inline that drops off in to a drainage ditch. So, if you don't have good balance, don't go to the potty area. They do... More

Monica and the staff here are very friendly and willing to help. The rooms are amazing and the free laundry is a great bonus. Also this is a great location in Abilene, only a few minutes from lots of places to eat, and even really close to the mall. I cant recommend it enough.
