The staff was very friendly and professional. They were very accommodating and went out of their way to ensure we had the best stay possible. I was extremely impressed with Matt and Marina.

A very nice extended stay hotel and on the smaller side at this location.Fairly new. Though housekeeping is weekly with a refresh in between, they do service almost daily, though it is not needed or required. Though I'm not sure why, my only complaint is that the bath towels are not hung near the shower. I must routinely step out... More

We were moving to the DC are and anticipated an eight night stay before our home was ready. The day we got to the area, we were told our home wouldn't be ready for an additional eight days. This put us in a bit of a bind. Luckily, the management at Candlewood Suites accommodated my family (including pets) with open... More

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

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..

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.
