We booked this hotel through corporate travel agency for a weekend stay when we were in town for a youth baseball tournament. The booking request was for a non-smoking room, however the room Candlewood booked was a smoking room that was unbearable. There was no way we could stay in that room with our young boys. The manager Ken Mobarek... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean, comfortable room at a good price. Great value. Good location near restaurants, shopping (mall next door) and the highway. Suite hotel so you have a kitchen; however, they do not serve breakfast.

I am a regular. The hotel is in great location, close to all kinds of shopping, dining out and sports facilities. It has a small but well equipped fitness room, an indoor pool with jacuzzi. The rooms are clean and has all the amenities which you can expect from Candlewood suites. The staff is friendly as well as the hands... More

Visiting family in Iowa for a lengthy stay and found this hotel provides exceptional value. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I used the exercise room, the computer stations, and the cupboard for some things like coffee and bottled water. I did notice that the towels felt damp and I am not sure if that was due to the...

I had a nice stay at the Candlewood. Service was friendly. The rooms were small but had a full size kitchen. The fitness center has some free weights and a shoulder machine with some cardio but is lacking. The ROC across the street is a nice gym. No free breakfast is a downer with 3 hotels on the same block... More

Stayed here for two weeks while working in the area. The kitchen with a full size fridge/freezer was really nice. I was able to bring meals and food from home which saved me a lot of money. Nice size room which included a recliner. Housekeeping only once a week, but that didn't bother me. No free breakfast but the kitchen... More
