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".

As a regular visitor to the Elgin IL area for business, this hotel has always provided excellent accommodations. It is a newer hotel, so it doesn't have that "well worn" feeling or cheap renovation atmosphere. These comments only relate to the less expensive "studio" and "extended" suites and not the larger "1 Bedroom" suite The room appointments are very good.... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms, and very comfy beds. Stayed on the lower level and people above me were very loud. Recommend staying on top floor. Some dishes in kitchenette were dirty.

I read all these great reviews on here that deemed this hotel #2 in the area and went ahead and booked for myself and my boyfriend. Granted, there isn't much in Elgin to begin with, so I figured our options were limited, but Candlewood looks really nice on the outside. I was totally disappointed. The price is definitely the best... More

The girl at the desk told me the hotel is one year old, so everything was new and fresh. The room was very comfortable. She gave us a handicapped-friendly room, so there was even more space in the bathroom; I think my wife would have preferred a regular room. The business model of this hotel is an extended-stay room, so... More

Our 3-night stay at the Candlewood Suites in Elgin was great. From my understanding, the hotel has only been open for about a year. The room and hotel in general were exceptionally clean. The staff was very friendly. They even have free (yes I said free) on-site laundry for their guests! Had we stayed longer, I would have definitely taken... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks over Christmas. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The entire staff, but especially Alisa, went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Our ice maker didn't work so they brought us ice several times. The room was very spacious & clean. They have a full size frig, sink, two... More
