I have never stayed at a Candlewood Suites before but I was pleasantly surprised! The room was wonderful. I loved the full kitchen, it came in very handy! The staff was wonderful and the construction crew that have been staying there (aka "the thugs") were awesome as well. They helped us in choosing some great local places for good burgers!... More

Stayed here a week. The manager and staff were very helpful and nice. Price was good because of the #of days we stayed. Missed not being on the beach but is close. If you stay for a period of time you don't have daily room service. They will give you what ever you need though, if you ask.

The weekend before the 4th of July, my wife and her sister’s family went down to the coast to try and catch some sunshine. We stayed Saturday and Sunday night at the Candlewood, and were quite pleased with the stay. There’s a pool, which seems rare for the brand. The deck is a good size for the hotel, and there’s...

My family stayed here for 2 nights for a beach vacation. I loved having a kitchen to prepare meals and save money on dining out. The Target across the street was great for picking up groceries. The rooms were clean, though a little small. We had a DVD player in the living area and borrowed movies from the front desk.... More

Candlewood Suites is a very nice hotel with spacious rooms, a kitchenette, gym and a convenience store. The negative things of this hotel is that for 2 adults, the bed is somewhat small and more importantly, the parking lot and the pool area outside has too many MOSQUITOS which can turn a beautiful evening outside into a nightmare. Mosquitos attacked... More

I was scared after my company booked threw travelocity. Let me tell you, NONE of what was said has proved to be true. This hotel is new and spotless. I have never felt so at home while traveling on the road for my job. My stay was 6 nights and the front desk was nothing as described. The gentleman was... More

I recently stayed at Candlewood during a very busy time for them--a dance competition coupled with a festival downtown as well as a cruise weekend (my husband and my reason for being there). Not only did we receive a fast check in with no problems, but the wonderful girl Abigail at the front desk arranged for our parking at their... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night. We made our reservation at the very last minute, so there were not many vacancies in hotels around the area, and we ended up paying over $200 for the room. That was too much. We had a room with 2 double beds. They apparently do not have rooms with 2 queen beds, which... More
