I made this reservation a few weeks ago through the IHG's (their parent company) toll-free number as I am a member through Holiday Inn. BIG MISTAKE. I should have booked with the hotel directly. When I arrived, I was told that (a) my and my daughter's rooms were on separate floors. The IHG guy assured me that they would be... More

I stayed here for a couple nights during my husband's Ranger School pass. The rooms are large, comfortable, and attractive. It is very close and easy to get to Ft. Benning, especially the Harmony Church area and Ranger school area. Also close to Ranger Joe's and Commando's. The area itself is not very nice, but the parking lot is well-lit... More

My rating of the property itself is good, my rating of my overall stay/experience is very bad! Checked in on 7/24 for family day, as my son is in Basic training. Everything seemed quite nice, clean rooms, pleasant staff. The next day decided to go ahead and "reserve" 2 rooms at the front desk, for our family for when we... More

Amy394, I was personally alarmed to hear about the accounting issue which affected your card. Debit Card transactions and hotels are often confounding and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. It is not the sort of experience Candlewood Suites or I personally would ever wish our guest's to have. You and I spoke at length 31 hours after... More

We stayed at this hotel on a family vacation. The rooms were very nice and clean it's in a great location and MOST of the staff is friendly. The only problem I have with this hotel is the fact that they don't back their word. If we ever deal with another candlewood I will have everything in writing. The other... More

I opted for Candlewood based on reviews here and, as I had an early flight out of CMH, wanted a hotel nearby the airport. It offered the lowest rates of the decent chain hotels. I was not disappointed. Staff was friendly and polite, rooms were clean and quiet, space was ample for working with plenty of outlets for cell phones,... More

My family and I stayed for one night while in Columbus to go to the National Infantry Museum. This is a nice, clean, comfortable hotel. The rooms are spacious and well stocked.
