Did not honor our king bed suite reservation. room smelled like smoke and was told one thing then something different why our reservation wasnt honored. I expected better as a rewards club member. Not a good hotel to stay in and will look for other IHG hotels in area.

Very friendly staff! Accommodating, helpful and knowledgable. Hotel was clean overall and suites were well appointed for an extended stay. A couple of things I noticed though that are kind of scary. 1) NO sprinklers in the rooms! For a building basically made out of plywood and/or OSB that would not take long to be fully engulfed in flames, it... More

Amid a classic COLD Midwestern snowstorm, I chose this hotel because I’ve had excellent experience with the HIE chain of hotels over many years…and this hotel gave me exactly what I was hoping for. So here’s the drill: Location: At the entrance to I-69, north and south. Staff: Friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful in many ways. Room: Clean, orderly, comfortable…not too... More

Stayed for a volleyball tourney. Room was good, but some families received a king with a pullout even though two doubles were booked. Rooms were clean, quiet and well equipped. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price was reasonable. Will stay at this hotel again in the future if 2 beds are guaranteed.

Stayed for one night on a weekend (Sat) night. Hotel was at capacity with lots of families and teams. Room was nice and dark for sleeping. Fridge and kitchen area was a good size. Considering all the people at hotel it was fairly quiet. Very nice staff. Helpful and friendly.

This is a great place a little hard to find but a great place to stay The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful and it is centrally located off the expressway. The coffee is free 24/7 in their snack bar. The hotel is very clean and the suite I was in was great.

I've stayed at the Fort Wayne candlewood suites on several occasions. The hotel and the rooms are fairly basic as far as extended stay hotels go. I travel a lot for my job and I have say the staff are the friendliest I've encountered at any hotel. Ashley and Jane in particular are great at catering to guest needs. They... More

This location has a wonderful staff from start to finish. Very clean & well-stocked w/any supplies you might need on a stay. It is very set-up to be able to cook & relax just like at home too. The bed could've been slightly more plush in the mattress department....but was adequate. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It... More

We stayed at the hotel as a sports team group. Our room was clean and the refrigerator, stove and dishwasher were nice to have in the room. The two double beds are very small and good for only one person to sleep in. I would try to get a room with the king bed and pull-out sofa bed. The hotel... More
