I have to give a big Thank you to the girl that worked the front desk. I believe her name is Iris, and she went above her duties to help us. The hotel in all was very quite, considering it totally booked. A few things that I didn't like was the lack of a covered area to un-load your suitcases,... More

Our family of four stayed here for six nights over the Christmas holiday week. Receptionist on arrival was friendly, however, after her we encountered others who seemed less than happy to be at work. At one stage, we went downstairs to collect extra towels, only to find the receptionist asleep at the desk. Our room was decently sized, but next... More

The ONLY downside to this place is that there isn't a breakfast option in the mornings (unless you want to buy from their convienence store?). But this room was amazing! Brought my group of students here for a two day youth conference just to stay one night, and we were all amazed at how nice the hotel was. I think... More

I am director of sales & marketing in upscale hotels in Houston, TX. Being from Lafayette, I needed a hotel for a wedding I was attending on October 17th, and I chose Candlewood, never stayed in this brand before. What I noticed and appreciated was the functionality of the hotel. I am someone that does not like to be overly... More

After being a resident of a Staybridge, I was amazed at how bad my stay here was. Not only did housekeeping not wash my floors or my bathroom sink, but sitting out in the gazebo was shortened when a rat was crawling up and down the building and crawling around the gazebo! Washing machines were broken and housekeeping staff was... More

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!!!
