I chose this hotel because of it's location and the full-kitchen. This was my first stay at this particular Candlewood Suites. It appears to be "dated". However, my room was clean and the staff was friendly. The A/C seemed to have issues with keeping my room cool. Houston is a hot/humid city, so I was a bit disappointed that my... More

First I have to admit it was my fault for forgetting my Ipad at the hotel. I got home, realized that and immediately locked it through internet. Called the hotel 4 times to ask if they could find it somewhere in the room, laundry room, lost and found office or anywhere that if someone forgets their belongings, the hotel can... More

I booked this hotel due to its name ("Candlewood Suites" are a good brand generally, for what I am looking for in a hotel), its location closes to where my meetings were the next day, and the price (moderate, not super cheap nor super expensive). The hotel itseslf is not too bad, although there are definitely things that need to... More

Candlewood Suites nice! Weekend visit in Houston for no particular reason. Booked Priority Club Point Break booking and received a nice two bed room with a view of Westheimer Road. Late arrival and the staff greeted me by name after confirming an existing reservation. Acknowledged Priority Club status with bottled water and a bag of cookies and a thank you.... More

THis was located close to freeeways and good eating places. I didnt have any problems other than when we turned the heater on it smelled like it was burning and set off the smoke detector. I assume it hadnt been turned on in a while. CHeck in was easy and staff we encountered was nice and polite. NO other issues

It's okay for a couple of nights. Places to eat close by. There's a sort of shop (locked) that sells stuff - never went in to look Easy parking Not too difficult to find. Handy for escaping west. Easy for the beltway and routs to airport.

This was my first stay at this Candlewood. For the most part, the hotel has a convenient location -- easy access. My problem was that I felt like I was walking into a college dorm. There seemed to be college age kids everywhere. The staff seemed to keep the place clean, but the laundry room was like a sauna. The... More

Upon arriving at hotel for hubby's business trip (my 1 yr.old and i came along), we were greeted by friendly front desk personnel by the name of Wen.

The title really says it all. It's more of an extended stay kind of place in a slighty dodgy neighborhood. If you want a place with a full sized fridge -- then here you go. My other choices were sold out -- next time I won't stay here.

I was stayed here (Studio suite, ground floor, just behind the pool gazebo) 2 weeks for business purpose and I loved it. Despite that they don't clean the room everyday (every 2-3 days or so as I remember), the place is actually quite enjoyable. Things you need to know; - No breakfast served. But Waffle House & Sonic are just... More
