Stayed only one night, but it was a very nice roomy 2 bed room with a kitchen area and desk. Nice bathroom. My friends and I will be returning to the flinthills again and will probably stay here again.

We were on a recruiting visit to ESU with our son and stayed at Candlewood Suites. It was conveniently located, right off the highway, across from Walmart, several restaurants and minutes from Emporia State. The room was clean, beds comfy, shower strong. The staff were very nice and accommodating. The only negatives were the funky smell in the room- still... More

I enjoyed my two night stay at the Candlewood Suites. It was not luxurious, but very clean and functional. I found it much better than the HIE down the road. Kitchen was a real plus as was the small store.

Stayed here on business for two nights only. The room was quiet, clean and very comfortable, especially the bed. Though not as spacious as other suite hotels I've stayed in, this wasn't bad at all. The oversize desk was a nice touch. I didn't take advantage of the extended stay features, such as the stove, dishwasher, or microwave (I didn't... More

I stayed at the Candlewood Suites for 5 days mid-July during a Kansas heatwave. I was there for a tournament. The room was clean, well suited for eat-in, cook-in living. The refrigerator was super cold a real plus because I needed to bring cold drinks to the outdoor tournament. I used the laundry facilities once. Though free, the washing machines... More

First, I have no idea what DonSanFrancisco_CA is talking about that the rooms are cleaned once a week. That is not true at all. They clean every day IF you desire them to. Of course they clean when someone checks out and they will clean your room while you're staying there if you choose for them to. Otherwise they have... More

At Candlewood Suites they clean your room ONCE A WEEK. The towels and sheets are exchanged ONCE A WEEK. You must take your dirty towels down to the front desk to exchange. However, you cannot exchange your sheets. There is no breakfast and no social area. The pillows are the lumpiest you’ll ever sleep on and the furnishings are of... More
