I had an opportunity for a one year contract in the Northern Virginia area, but didn't want to go through the agony of leasing, buying furniture, hooking up gas, electric, water, phone as well as TV/internet service. What to do? I visited several "extended stay" suites and talked with the managers to arrange long term payment plans. After several stops,... More

The location is in a very good neighborhood, very close to food, shopping and other amenities. The room was very clean, with a new TV, and very little noise. Employees are very gracious and accommodating. I always try to stay at this hotel when I am in the Fairfax, VA area.

I read a number of positive reviews on tripadvisor about this hotel, so I decided to give it a try. I was underwhelmed, to say the least. I had to check in after the front desk had closed, but the on-call manager quickly helped me with my key. Unfortunately, it was a key to a room that was already occupied.... More

Enjoyed the small kitchen fully equipped for two. Staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Location was great for the area, close to several malls, restaurants, and express way.

I stayed at the candlewood suites this month for 4 nights. After getting lost trying to find them i was pleasantly surprised, I had gotten a really good deal on priceline so was not expecting them to be that great. The room is of a pretty decent size and looks to be recently upgraded with a flat screen TV and... More

I've stayed in 8~10 Fairfax area hotels over the past 10 years, including all the "extended suites" places; Candlewood is the best value, friendliest staff, and great location. It is close to shopping and dinning, easy access to major roads, yet tucked in a quiet neighborhood. Every single time I walk past the front desk, the staff greets me with... More

Stayed here twice over 2 weeks, start and end of the holiday. Different desk staff each time but same brilliant service. Exactly what you need at the end of a long flight - friendly and welcoming. Nice little self-serve lobby shop with all basics needed at low cost. Free 24 hour coffee in the lobby.

Due to a medical necessity my husband and I needed to be in the DC area for an extended time. We talked with staff about special needs and all of those were met.
