We stayed 3 weeks here and enjoyed our stay. Very convenient location, and nice and quiet. Our room was comfortable and clean. Staff was super friendly. The USA paper (5 days) and local paper (7 days) were complimentary. Also complimentary coffee, apples and bananas, all available 24/7. Not required, or advertised, but each Wednesday evening while we were here they... More

We needed a hotel that is pet-friendly and Candlewood Suites did not disappoint. The room is spacious and the little kitchen was very helpful as our dog is a young puppy. The staff members are wonderful. Super friendly and concerned that we have a great experience. Thanks especially to Ana who behaves as if this hotel is her own home... More

My family stayed at this hotel for a visit to the college. It is close to Illinois State and Illinois Wesleyan Universities. We booked online easily. On our way we were delayed in traffic and called to say we would not arrive until after 11pm. The person answering the phone was polite, and said they would hold the room and... More

I stayed at this Candlewood for 10 months and can honestly say it was nothing short of pleasurable.

My husband is a pipeline rig welder, and that requires working away from home. April 1 I retired from nursing, sold our home and we decided full-time RV life was our dream.
