We stayed here for only one night while passing through Madison. We chose this hotel because of its great access to the Capital City Bike Trail. The room and facility were adequate and clean. There was plenty of parking. We liked being within walking distance of eating establishments.

I was apparently, accidentally, charged $25 at check-in. My room was already paid for, but I provided my card at the front desk at check-in to secure the room in case of damages. I noticed the charge, called in, and was told the charge was a mistake and would be reversed. Weeks passed, the charge was never reversed. I called... More

This was my first time at a property of this chain. Compared with other mid-price extended stay hotels, the room is somewhat bigger (fairly spacious), the bed was especially comfortable with excellent linens. The kitchen is full -- full size refrigerator/freezer, good equipment, dishwasher, microwave, stovetop (but no oven). Everything is nicely laid out, with plenty of space to move... More

The bathroom had peeling paint and needed to be updated. Otherwise the room was decent. The receptionist did not acknowledge my Priority Club status and I had to ask if they offered ant perks for Platinum members. I was given a bottle of water. Not a bad property just needs some up dating to the bathrooms.

The rooms are ok, nothing stands out as great, but overall are fine. My biggest complaint was that the "Candlewood Cupboard" typically full of drinks, snacks, etc. was empty. They had no bottled water, no pop, and only a few bags of chips. the worst part was that the guy working there said that was all they had and didn't... More

My wife and I stayed here over Christmas as we visited family in the Madison area. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the facility's public and private areas were very clean, despite the sloppy winter weather. Our one bedroom suite held two HD televisions, a bedroom and a living room. The kitchenette included a full sized refrigerator, a two... More

I had to check twice to see if we were paying the correct amount because I was sure the price was too low! Hardwood floors in a full kitchen (full size fridge, dishwasher, oven, microwave, sink) lead to spacious and elegant room. Clean and warm, in a beautiful and safe area. We walked to The Great Dane Brewery/Eatery and even... More

Where do you get off? Immaculately clean rooms AND friendly staff? Who do you think you are? By now, you may have guessed I am speaking ironically and have nothing but good things to say about what you do. Candlewood Suites Fitchburg, do not change a thing. (Actually, the only thing to change would be to get flatscreen tvs.)

I thought the customer service from all 3 shifts at the desk was very good. I stayed in a king suite which was spacious, had everything we needed, comfortable bed. I really liked that they have a DVD player in the room and movies at the desk to check out. The location was very ideal for our stay-closest to a... More

We didn't actually stay at this hotel, but had great customer service when we called and needed to cancel. We didn't meet the usual cancellation policy deadline, but they were very understanding and willing to work with us. We will plan to stay here in the future based on this experience.
