Dog's left in rooms barking. The Hotel needs to update. Had stayed at 3 other times and the Hotel had gone down hill. But the price has gone up. It's great to have a laundry room. The staff was friendly. But shouldn't be taking smoke breaks right out the side door

My dad likes staying here when on his way back from KW. I like it, clean and quiet. Definitely will keep coming back- price is usually right. It's obviously a chain, but so far it has been good for what we need it for.

We visit the area several times a year. We try to stay at Candlewood Suites whenever possible. Always friendly and accommodating. Close to the beach. Off the beaten path but close to everything. Like the one bedroom suites.

As stated before I wanted a 2 room suite. When I asked for the reservation to be changed, I was told that they would see what they could do. I never heard from them again. We had planned to stay for 7 days. We left early.

Stayed here at this Candlewood in 2012 fall. Charming faces of Linda, Dan , Kyle, Kim and more. That stay was excellent. Now we came back in 2015 December Adam was working at checkin, very rude guy.

This was simply an "okay" property...the front desk staff was truly exceptional and super friendly...but that is as far as I would go from there. The carpeting in the hallways could use cleaning and repair--as walls needed some maintenance in the hallways to the room. The room was classed as a suite but it was teeny. The kitchen area of...

While the advantage of the Candlewood Suites is that they have partial kitchens available, the room itself is not comfortable for two people. No sofa for two to relax side by side; one has to sit on the bed or in an office type chair, while the other sits crammed in the corner in the easy chair. This room had... More

This place is a great option if you want to spend a lot of time on Sanibel/Captiva islands. It is quick access to the islands, and the staff is friendly, and professional. It is tucked away and quiet, but only 1 minute from the main drag

This was a nice and clean hotel that is close to Fort Myers Beach. Great price, large rooms, clean and a short drive to the beach. I look forward to my next stay. Staff was extremely friendly. There is ample free parking at this hotel without the drama of being on the beach with drunks and expensive parking.
