A great place to stay. It was our first time staying here, had an awesome room. Front desk was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Will definitely recommend this place to family and friend, and will stay here anytime we are in this city!

This property is well maintained, clean and has friendly staff. The room was well appointed and had everything required for a longer stay including toaster, cutlery, dishware, fridge with ice maker and so on. Our only complaints were the weak shower pressure and the "maze" required to navigate to reach the hotel from the highway. The hotel appears to be... More

Howard R, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am very happy to read who well your stay went with us. I can understand your frustration with the roads within the business park to get to the hotel. The hotel is easy to see but can be difficult to get to the parking lot. Hopefully we... More

I wrote a review a few months back as my monthly stays were becoming less and less enjoyable at this property. I visited this property again and am happy to report they seemed to have worked on the things that were annoying. The internet speed issues seem to have been fixed. Although speeds are not blazing, there is not the... More

We felt this was a great bang for the buck. Our room was very clean and the kitchenette was very nice. The staff was kind, and the little commons store was a nice touch. We did not take advantage of the ability to borrow a blender, or board games, but I thought it was nice to have the option. We... More

The Candlwood suites is a hidden gem in Kalamazoo. Its right off the interstate not hard to find. The suites are nice roomy and clean. The bed was comfortable but they only had 3 pillows on a king size bed. The staff (Brittany) didn't have a problem bringing up the extra pillows once we called the front desk. Overall I... More

My friend and I just spent three nights at the Candlewood Suites in Kalamazoo. The room was lovely - full kitchen, huge bathroom, two very comfortable beds and clean, clean, clean! Loved being able to get a coffee or tea anytime. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The price was very reasonable and we got way more than we expected.... More

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

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.
