We stayed at this hotel in October as my son was getting married at a near by venue. This hotel met all our needs, it was quite, clean and just a very relaxing place. I will be sure to stay here again when I am in the Charlotte area. It is very convenient to several main attractions and the interstate.

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Candlewood Suits. We booked third party through hotels.com and was a little disappointed there was no continental breakfast. We couldn't find very many reviews online so that made me and my mom equally uneasy. We were so pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The hotel room was extremely nice. The room has a flat... More

Stayed one night for a concert. The suite was great. It came with a small kitchen and large desk. The bed was comfortable. The front desk has movies you can borrow and there is a small store where you can purchase food. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean.

I stayed here at a great rate and was very pleased. The hotel had a lot of personal touches such as the front desk staff knowing me by name that I didn't expect. The room had a kitchenette with a stove and full size fridge. The room was spacious and I didn't feel cramped. This was a great value for... More

We began our two week road trip by staying the first night at Candlewood-Charlotte Univ. Found this property to be one of the nicest of the chain. Staff very friendly and rooms large and modern. One caution...unless you're prepared to get back into your car and drive to a restaurant, check-in early. The only sit down restaurant within walking distance... More

I came to Charlotte for a concert. I was looking for a deal on a room because I don't normally spend this kind of money to see music. I live in a place that has plenty of talent and listening rooms. This was a splurge to say the least. Loved the room renovations. I felt like it was a luxury... More

I often stay at Candlewood Suites while traveling for business because it has a complete kitchen and it's nice not to have to eat out all of the time, and enjoy leftovers. However, this was simply one of the nicest I have ever stayed at. The rooms have been beautifully updated. The beds are amazingly comfortable and the bathrooms feel... More

Our first impression of this hotel was that it was updated nicely. The kitchen had a cooktop (not an oven, so it is not a full kitchen), a microwave, and a dishwasher. The cabinets and countertops had been redone, so it looked very nice. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite, so there was a pull-out couch that we used for... More

This place is nice. Had a full kitchen, Big Flat Screen TV and comfortable bed. Make sure you ask for extra towels they don't service the room everyday so it's not a conventional hotel. Only draw back is that there weren't alot of food options within walking distance just a pizza place and seafood restaurant across the street. If you... More
