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

We believed we were getting the room pictured on the site that separated sleeping area and family/kitchen area. When we showed up we asked the attendent after we got to our room and he said it is a suite since it has a kitchen. Beware if traveling with little ones call and clear up which room you want.

We stayed at this hotel while we were in town for deep river water park, this hotel was very clean, the staff was very friendly !!! The hotel was very conveniently located very close to all the area restaurants which was a big plus traveling with small children. : )

We stayed here for a two week period, and found out that we had bed bugs. When we confronted the front desk they did nothing about and two weeks later it had only gotten worse. There were bed bugs everywhere and the managers did nothing about it! DISGUSTING.
