Staff is amazing, rooms were great, location is prefect and is in walking to Fresh Market, Dick's Sporting Goods an numerous other stores. The rooms are large and well laid out. Complimentary newspaper was a bonus and the complimentary coffee was well received. Overall I had a great stay and will be back soon.

This was one of the nicest extended stay experiences. The kitchen was large enough for two people to navigate. The overall room was larger than average. The bath was just average in size and amenities. and we felt there could have been another towel rack for an extended stay. Staff was a real plus at this hotel. I had an... More

In the past, we stayed at Eastland Suites whenever we visited Bloomington/Normal. To save some money, we chose to stay at the Candlewood Suites. There were pros and cons to Candelwood. It was cheaper, but breakfast was not included (as it is at Eastland). The room is also much smaller than Eastland. We were traveling with an infant and there... More

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. The property and rooms are very clean and the kitchen area with stove and full fridge easily made preparing meals hassle free. There is plenty of shopping, restaurants and activities all within minutes the hotel. The Gazebo area with gas grills came... More
