This was another business trip of mine. This hotel is part of MSU campus and so it's middle of green and soothing place which so quiet and peaceful. It's not exotic or 5 star types ... but staff is very friendly. Rooms are large and comfortable. The first thing you notice is the kitchen table with lots of pots and... More

Room was very nice. Clean and everything we needed. We were missing a remote control but the desk clerk was nice enough to loan us the front desk's. Bathroom and kitchenette were modern and nice style.

Room on the 2nd floor, but that is really the first in most areas, at ground level. Nice setting and room is well appointed, but no food options nearby except the $20+ per person University Club. Only coffee available was decaf. Would stay again if we had a car to go get food and coffee. Pool hours end at 9,... More

Nice hotel. Clean and comfortable. Golf course was beautiful- nice quiet location. Wish there had been a hot-tub. The supper club/lounge was hard to find, pricey, and closed at 9 weekdays. Otherwise no complaints. Planning to stay again in August.

I stayed for 3 nights with my family of 3. The location is spacious, clean and has a modest but sufficient kitchen. It is just off campus at Michigan State. We had a room with a queen bed room and pull out sofa bed in the living room that worked great for our 5 year old. I cooked some simple... More

I came to this hotel for attending my friend's graduation and it was an amazing experience. Shelby at the front desk was spectacular and very prompt to attending to guest. Moreover, Tonya was an absolute gem because her professionalism, along with her ability to make any stay a great stay is something worth sharing about!!! These two are what every... More

The hotel is good but there is not a lot around it for food and services. We were there for a course and liked it but needed to drive to everything kind of out of the way just to get the basics. I would stay here again. Shower had very low water pressure took forever to take a shower!

I arrived in Lansing after 8 pm. on a Friday night. My intention was to spend time with a daughter over the holiday weekend. I knew I would not spend a lot of time in the hotel so I wanted a decent hotel but one that was not expensive. That drove me to an discount internet hotel reservation site. I... More

First time I ever stayed at Candlewood Suites. I was highly impressed with the friendliness of the front desk. Very professional and pleasant. The room was one of the nicest ones I've ever stayed in. Very clean, especially the bathroom. Had a full-size refrigerator with a icemaker (a REAL nice benefit), coffeemaker for coffee drinkers (I'm not), sink with garbage... More

Stayed here on a recent weekend. Clean, nicely furnished, and the use of the adjoining MSU University Club is a great reason to stay here. You have privileges at the U-Club such as the exercise room and restaurant and bar. Like the fact the rooms have small kitchens and a full fridge in them. I gave them four stars instead... More
