The suite was extremely clean especially the bathroom. Hospitality staff were welcoming and helpful. I read the reviews prior to my stay there were several comments regarding no breakfast being provided. I am not a breakfast person plus with a full kitchen prefer making something in my suite. However, I thought it was very nice that the hotel has fresh... More

Fantastic hotel with awesome, clean rooms. The staff was exceptionally helpful, including Brittany. This hotel has free laundry. Laundry is accessible 24 hours a day. You need to bring your own so or you can buy it from the hotel at a nominal price. Will stay here again if I return to Kalamazoo for business. Absolutely great place to stay.

We stayed at this hotel on our way through Michigan in late April 2014. The hotel was clean and comfortable, and full of amenities that made our stay there fantastic. We travel with our own food instead of going to restaurants all the time, so the full-sized fridge in the kitchen area was fantastic! Great layout, ideal for longer stays... More

RoboticCanine, Thank for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm happy to see that our full sized fridge helped during your travels across Michigan. The full kitchenettes are a really nice benefit for our long term guests. Hopefully the next time you are traveling across Michigan you stop in and see us again! More

We have stayed here in Kalamazoo twice now. We do a lot of laundry on the road, and while most hotels charge two dollars a load, we love the complimentary machines here. The rooms are very spacious and the kitchen is also very useful. The selection of dvds to rent at the front desk is also convenient.

We stayed at this hotel twice now. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help.

I stayed here for 30+ days after I sold my home. The staff was friendly, helpful of all requests, and respected my privacy. Housekeeping staff was friendly, respectful of my things, and were careful with my 2 cats. The hotel does allow pets for what I thought was a modest fee of $75 that pays for a thorough cleaning of...

By paying just a little more in this area I felt safe. The other hotels around there are nasty, this one is brand new. Great location and friendly service. Quiet and the beds are super nice! If you have never stayed at one of these hotels you will be very impressed. Thanks again for the stay we will be back!

We were temporarily working in the Southern Michigan. The Candlewood Suites was found on the internet as a local hotel with a full kitchen. We travel a lot for work and a kitchen was a necessity.
