I had booked a room here because the Kellogg Center was full. My daughter is a theater major and was appearing in a production the weekend I booked. Little did I know that it was not only a football weekend but it was Homecoming weekend. Be careful travelers... The prices double for home games and quadruple for homecoming weekend. When... More

Thank you for choosing the Candlewood Suites and for leaving feedback about your stay. I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion that was caused by our special event pricing. The high demand due to MSU home football games does impact our rates during the fall. While I understand your concern with the football pricing I hope that you will choose... More

The rooms were all renovated in 2014 and they were done nicely. The basic "suite" has only a queen bed but a full size refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave and two burner stove top. The décor is subdued but inviting. The lobby looks more like a cheap motel when you walk in so the rooms were a nice surprise. All amenities... More

I booked with candlewood suites for a business trip and liked the room. Nice lay out and the kitchenette is nice. They really shined when I got a flat tire in the rain. Their events cordinator Calvin went out to help change the tire in the rain. Made a bad day better.

We rented 2, one bedroom suites for 4 friends. The booking clerk suggested that ordinary suites have only one queen bed, while the accommodation we booked also had a hide-a-bed in the living room (50% more expensive). Unfortunately, the hide-a-bed isn't made up and we had to search out linens and pillows. Also, the unit is only stocked with coffee... More

The rooms have been recently updated. Very clean. Our room was spacious, bed was comfortable although a little squeaky when rolling over. Tons of storage space. Full kitchen with glass dishes, silverware, coffee maker, full size fridge with freezer, 2 burner stovetop and microwave. Staff was pleasant. Small lobby but that didn't matter to us. They also have a small... More

Previous stays at this property have been nothing but positive, from housekeeping to the general manager. So, was dismayed when the ball was dropped by several staff members during our stay this past weekend while moving our MSU girl into her apt. I'm on crutches & dad is serving in Iraq, so at a time when customer service should have... More

I Pricelined a one night stay for a trip to visit MSU. The hotel is, still, undergoing renovations and the remodeling of the rooms on the first floor was evident but not bothersome. The front desk staff were very friendly and check in was a breeze. We were given a studio suite on the 3rd floor and were SO pleasantly... More

From the outside the hotel isn't much to look at, the lobby is very plain and semi-unappealing. The room however was clean, quiet, very nicely decorated and spacious. The staff at check in and check out were pleasant, polite, and prompt (what more could I have asked of them). Sometimes it's just nice to be surprised... :-) Would recommend this... More

We were a little worried about staying here based on others' reviews but crossed our fingers for a remodeled room. We got one! We stayed in room 106. We were impressed with the spaciousness and decor of the suite. A separate bedroom with at least a full sized bed, we couldn't really tell if it was queen or not but... More
