We were in Galveston to attend a Christmas concert and to visit with some old friends. The hotel was very nice. The room was a one bedroom with plenty of space. We enjoy Candlewood Suites because they have a full kitchen. Service was excellent. They welcomed our dogs as well. We had a great time.

Booked 5 night stay through their central reservations. Wanted smoking room, ground floor, and we travel with a small dog. Our room was on the top floor (3rd) and overlooked the city dump. There were very few guests in the hotel. Asked for two extra pillows the next morning as the bed had three small, square, lumpy pillows and was... More

We recently took a 3 day vacation to galveston island & stayed at Candlewood suites. Extremely satisfied with the quality of service here. Would like to mention that we reached a lot earlier than the normal checkin timings. Staff couteously helped us to get a room ready at the earliest possible. I would surely recommend this place.

Location: The hotel is less than 2 miles from the main beach and the nightlife in town, but I have to say for 5,000 points per night during the Priority Club Points Break promotion, it was more than perfect and we were really happy to have been able to stay here.

We stayed there one night on a short trip to the Texas coast. The tone was more or less set by a sign that greeted us at the door when we checked in. It read (I'm paraphrasing, but this is close...) "Attention guests: For security reason [sic], we do not accept cash payment for accommodation. At all. For any reason."... More
