I had some problems when I stayed at Candlewood New Bern last week, Aug. 21, 2014. The bed was lumpy, pillows hard, electrical outlet didn't work and the air 'freshener' used to clean the room was overpowering and clung to everything, including my clothes and luggage. When I posted a review via their hotel email survey, the manager called me.... More

We have had a weekend to remember CandleWood Suites staff and hotel was as pleasant as the country air. Our elders and some youngsters were so pleased with the courtesy that was given to us over the weekend. Kelly at the front desk was a doll, she helped us through and answered all of our questions and crazy requests. The... More

Positives: Beautiful room, perfectly clean, no noise issues, great heat/ac control, desk and housekeeping staff were friendly and polite. Negative: Only one. I had a serious issue with the manager that was eventually resolved to my satisfaction. It was serious enough that I would not stay there again, but I would willingly try any other Candlewood Suites. I found the... More

Stayed for 4 nights in January. The biggest plus was the location. It is just across the street from several places to eat. IHOP, Applebee's, Papa John's, Schlotzsky's, Texas Steakhouse, China Wok, A&J Steak Subs, Waffle House... just to name a few. The food pantry has an honor system, which I really liked. You didn't need to get help in... More

Love Candlewood's in general, but this place left a bad taste in our mouths. Included in our stay were free eye rolls when asking for an extra coffee packet, a room right beside the laundry room while the hotel was basically empty - I am assuming the clerk who loved to roll her eyes at us just didn't like the...

Visted for 3 nights for a wedding. The staff was awesome and the rooms were large and spacious. They do not do daily maid service but the rooms are very clean. Plenty of places near by to eat or shop.

This is the third time I stayed here, this time for 3 nights. The receptionist remembered me (I'm not too cynical to think this was just from the computer records). If you like hotels which are cheap, clean and functional, but enough room in that you are not too cramped, this is a good choice. The absence of daily maid... More
