Cons: This property is literally surrounded by cornfields and office buildings. Nothing to walk to except a far off 7-eleven. Wear and tear - it's showing it's age, and our one bedroom suite was nothing like the picture, which showed updated furnishings, and accessories that made it look homey and inviting. No pool, courtyard, or breakfast. Suite looked half finished... More

We stopped here on the way from Ohio to Madison WI. We made the reservation on the fly based on trip advisor recommendations. They were not wrong. Checkin easy. There were several baseball teams with about 10 year old boys running the halls. I was very dubious about being kept up all night. However it was very quiet. We did... More

The staff made my stay very pleasant by helping with printing directions on mapquest and the person checking me in explained where I can find items in my room and the "pet area " outside. They are pet friendly and welcomed my dog. The room was clean and I like the kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal.... More

I checked into this hotel thinking I could save a few dollars on per diem and spend more on dinners. They had good choices in the store for breakfast, it only cost $3. Quick and easy. The room had WiFi so I could get my work done and after work there is more than enough speed to watch my Netfliks.... More

My company sent me for training to the Elgin area. Since I was staying for a few days I decided to go to an extended stay hotel. I love the full kitchen to make my own healthy breakfast and dinner. All the clothes I had went home clean, they have a FREE laundry there, I just purchased detergent from Walmart... More

I just moved to the area and had to wait until my apartment was ready. The rooms are like mini apartments. If you stay for a few weeks, the rates are great and you get a full kitchen to boot. The staff is friendly and always smiling. Since this is linked to Holiday Inns, I got Priority club points. Loved... More

Life circumstances required me to make a long-term stay at this hotel. The GM treated me with great kindness, the staff was exceptional to me every day for years. I really valued my time at Candlewood Suites and definitely recommend it to people looking for an alternative to apartment living. The rates are reasonable, they do housekeeping weekly, the Cupboard... More

I stayed here with my husband for a few days while he attended a workshop. This seems to be a newer hotel or at least very well cared for. We had a studio type room that faced south and a king sized bed. Hotel staff was friendly and everyone was very accommodating. I have to take a star off for... More

Hotel is clean and friendly staff. My only criticism is the upkeep of the grounds. Weeds and more weeds. Flowers and shrubs in need of water. Cigarette butts all over the patio area and the grills are badly in need of cleaning.

Would be a wonderful place for business extended stays. Nice kitchens with dishwasher. Large closet and bathroom. Comfortable bed. If you forget anything like a comb, toothbrush, toothpaste or razor don't expect complimentary replacements. You must purchase them from the lobby "store".
