Needed room last minute. Found hotel online and was cheapest room, so I was expecting cheap. Polite staff helped get best rate. Very clean and well organized. In walking distance to multiple dining choices. Late checkouts. Worked out great.

My wife loved this hotel, so that's all that matters, right? But seriously, I found it to be very comfortable but plain and simple, and she found it to be spacious and well-decorated. Either way, it looks like a good choice, whether you just need a quick place to rest your head overnight or an extended stay. The service and... More

During a recent trip to Lafayette we chose the Candlewood Suites at River Ranch for our stay. Comfortable, quiet and conveniently located. We will certainly stay there when we return to Lafayette. The only drawback was the lack of a swimming pool, but as it turned out we were too busy enjoying the adventures in the Lafayette area.

I stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Lafayette for business recently. It has been several months since I traveled to the area. Upon arriving, I was greeted with the same warm and welcoming atmosphere as always. Great team, great accommodations, great stay!!!

I have been at this hotel for 4 nights. Internet was spotty on night one. Second night, it shut down and I spent 4 hours on the phone with the Ethostream people. They could not get either of my computers to get a connection. I spent 3 hours in the lobby where I could get a connection. The next morning... More

We have stayed here numerous times to visit family. We love the in-room kitchen, full sized frig, nice sized bath, and coffee pot. They have a little market where you can buy groceries and snacks. Best of all is the location right on Kali Saloom right by River Ranch, restaurants and shopping

I booked this hotel as I was in town to attend a funeral with my partner via Hotels.com. I booked via phone so that I would get a room that met my specific needs of a suite with a couch and separate sleeping area. When I arrived I was given a king suite with a recliner chair. I returned to... More
