Booked the better part of a week at the Candlewood Suites by my company. The rooms are real suites--refrigerator and cooking facilities. It was good enough and probably chosen for price. Although the room was listed as non-smoking, it smelled of smoke. In addition, because other rooms had cooking facilities, the halls smelled of various fried foods. It felt like... More

We really enjoyed our stay there and plan on coming back next time that we are in town everything was great for the suite we had. This is a bonus place that we have been telling people about since our return home.

I stayed in the hotel for 7 nights. The hotel was nicely furnished. The amenities were great. The walls are paper thin. You can hear everything around you. The guests of a few other rooms were extremely noisy. At one point they were engaged in a fist fight in the room across the hall. I called the front desk several... More

My husband had to travel for business and his company put us here. We were supposed to have a suite on the third floor but the elevator was broken. Since it was cold and midnight my husband took a regular room on the first floor because we had a lot of things with us. The chairs in the room were... More

Check in was great, after a long ride to get here (hours) in some pretty rough traffic, all I wanted to do was relax. I got to my room to find the window wide open and the room temp matched the outside air temp of 42 degrees. The heat was not on in the room, yet. The room became comfy... More

We had a good stay here for 3 nights. Our room had 2 double beds with a kitchenette area. The room was very clean and comfortable. Bed was great. Staff were very helpful. I used IHG points and all that was available using points were rooms with a king bed. The manager helped me out and moved me to a... More

Spent one night here while the hotel was offering a free IHG rewards night for just 5,000 points. When we arrived, they had booked us in a room with two doubles instead of one queen, but the front desk clerk grabbed us as we were heading onto the elevator and found us a room with the one queen. He was... More

We always have a good experience with Candlewoods, but this one was exceptional. Fresh cookies every afternoon, great dog walking area, and excellent maid services. As usual, free laundry and very clean. My husband and I stayed for two and half weeks and it was a great stay! Very close to shopping too.

I wanted to love this hotel, i really did. Fresh newspapers and coffee in the morning, a crew that was psyched for life what could go wrong? Apparently the maids refuse to clean unless tipped, the manager habibi is a shady and suspicious man who said i was "smoking marijuana" when in reality i cooked bacon too much twice. All... More
