I am a military member who was moving from one location to another with my family. The hotel we booked was horrible. So we were driving down the street and came across Candlewood Suites. We were walk-ins, during a busy moving season, and needed to stay 10 days. Rather than being turned away, the staff welcomed us with open arms.... More

Stayed here with my wife while attending the Foo Fighters July 4th concert. Clean and newly remodeled with an attentive staff and the fine amenities I'm used to with this particular IHG chain, Only about a 25 minute drive to DC and the money saved not staying in the city was worth it. Would definitely stay here again on a... More

I had a wonderful visit to Candlewood suites during my visit to Alexandria. My stay was split over two weeks with a weekend break on between. During my 1st week I needed some help and Syeda helped me with a smile on her face. Even though it was towards the end of her shift and I was aware she worked... More

This is a good hotel, fairly new and clean. However, I was looking for something close to Old Town Alexandria, and this was 13 miles away with terrible traffic.. Good for Mt. Vernon and Ft. Belvoir, but not DC..

My husband and I stayed here in early April while visiting Mount Vernon (3 miles away). The property is quiet, very clean, and well-appointed. Our room had a perfectly adequate kitchenette. There is also free laundry!

Close to Mt Vernon for an event. A number of my group stayed there and no complaints. Rooms only have one bed, but rollaway available at reasonable fee. Staff was very helpful and responded quickly to extra bed request. No meals but coffee in restricted space for guests. Would use them again.

I stayed two nights at this hotel for a vacation centered around Mt Vernon. The location was excellent for our purpose. Check in was quick/parking was plentiful and the room was very clean and quiet. The room was a bit small - but because it contains a kitchen w/ full sized fridge/ microwave and cooktop + dishwasher. The bath is... More

Everything about our hotel stay was extremely satisfying. From the free laundry to the inroom kitchen and dining area. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Free parking and room for 5 and a dog.

A great and comfortable place to stay. Out of the center of town for a more relaxing environment, yet close enough to everything in a 20 minute drive. The wi-fi is fast and stable. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the recliner could be more comfortable. Other than that, this hotel is great.
