My husband and I arrived at the Candlewood Suites about 11:00 pm. There was a line about 4 people long to check in and it took us almost 20 minutes to get a room. When we did get a room, we opened the door and the room was a mess. The smell was disgusting, there were dirty dishes all over... More

Well a first for me. I walked into a room and almost immediately walked out. Not sure why the cleaning staff didn't notice the smell when they were cleaning, but "Can't you smell that smell"? Went right back to the front desk and asked if another room was available. The guy running the desk promptly gave me another room. The... More

As first-time visitors to the Houston area, we did not know what to expect. The Candlewood made us feel right at home. We generally prefer a suite rather than a single room, and this one exceeded our expectations. It was Texas-HUGE! Bedroom, bath, living room, kitchenette were all gorgeous, well-appointed and spotlessly clean. Free on-site parking is provided, no small... More

We were very pleased w our stay. It had been recently redone (except for some repair work in the lobby) and was very nice. The bed was comfortable. The bedding was crisp and fresh. The kitchen had all new appliances, dishes, pots, etc. The refrigerator even had an maker. We loved being close to the Galleria even if it was... More

Stayed for an extended time in a 1br suite. The room was nice and much better appointed than the Extended Stay competition. The location is excellent, the rooms facing the parkling lot can be bright and hear more noise from the freeway. Ask for the non-parking lot view for a quieter room. Staff was friendly and very accomdating. The honor... More

I've stayed at this location now 4 times, typically for 2-3 days at a time. I find the location to be fantastic and the accommodations pretty good. The service and experience have been hit and miss.

The night we stayed here was during a week in which there were not a lot of vacancies in the Houston area; choices were definitely limited. But since we have generally had good experience with IHG locations and this was near the TX Medical Center, we made reservations. The location was okay, near the freeway (i.e. easy to find).

While this modern hotel has an arguably good location because it is close to the Galleria and the intersection of two major freeways in the center of Houston (US 59 Southwest Freeway and I-610 Loop), for a first time visitor to Houston, it will likely prove difficult to find, as it is otherwise in the middle of nowhere.
