The rooms were above average, and included kitchenettes. I really appreciated that there was a large variety of cooking appliances available as loaners. The only issue I had with the property was with the billing. Due to a dynamic schedule my checkout dates changed. I understand that the rate may change due to shorter duration stays, but the billing was... More

I absolutely loved my stay at the Candlewood. Contrary to some previous reviews (of things I sort of believe are out of the hotel's control. They cannot control guests once there is no one on staff and sometimes it simply isn't in the budgeted hours to have someone on staff 24 hours a day), I thought the staff did a... More

Wonderful place to stay - excellent staff, made me feel very welcome - very clean rooms - and felt safe. Plenty of places for food nearby and a grocery store within walking distance. Traveled with my bichon dog and the hotel provides a great walking area for pets.

The hotel was nice and the room was comfortable so no complaints there other than the ridiculous cable TV channel selection. My real complaint was with the poor customer service and lackadaisical attitude when issues were brought up. I requested a wake up call the first night I was there and did not receive it. Fortunately I was already awake.... More

Let me start with the great things about this hotel: free wifi which was quite fast, well maintained building and rooms, the rooms were very nice, free laundry facilities and a BBQ area available. Here's what I didn't like: walls are fairly thin and you can hear noise from other rooms but what is quite loud is the AC units... More

Our first impression of this hotel was that it was in a black hole. It has few lights outside and makes you feel uneasy about leaving your car in the parking lot. Inside was pleasant and we were going to stay here until they told us about their pet fee. Are you Ready? Seventy five bucks over the price of... More
