“I could live here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

If you've stayed at Candlewood Suites before, you know the room layout. It has a comfortable separate bedroom plus a living room with kitchenette. Very comfortable and convenient. The linens were high-quality and the room was very clean. A couple quirks with Candlewood is they saved $ by putting in just one airconditioner and opening a hole in the wall with a fan to suck air into the bedroom from the living room. Also, they only clean and change linens once a week, though you can ask for clean towels if you need them. We don't mind that but some might. This location is just off the main drag, which is a divided highway, west bound on the hotel side of the street, so if you want to head east it's a little tricky but not really difficult. No free breakfast but there are plenty of options nearby -- and of course your kitchen.

Room Tip: Didn't hear any noise from the road and no great views so I don't think it really matters.

Thank you so much for taking the time to let everyone know what a great time you had at Candlewood Suites. We have several guests that choose to make our hotel their permanent homes. The suites have everything you need to make your long term or short term stay comfortable. As you know, having a full kitchen in the room makes it nice to be able to cook a nice dinner, as well as a dishwasher in the room to make it a little easier to relax after dinner. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your rest here. We do have such comfortable beds and high quality sheets. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

This place was really nice. It was about a 10-15 drive from Destin and ft walton beach, but still nice. Rooms were very clean, but didnt get cleaned everyday. Ceilings are very thin. You could here everytime someone was walking. We requested a room on the highest floor, the we got complained on for to much noise. Otherwise is was a good stay.

My company used this property to house our installers for a long period of time. The manager and his staff went out of there way to accommodate our every need. All of the rooms were very well cared for and he ammendities were excellent, especially the technical needs I had as it related to be able to carry on with the work I had to do away from the home office.

Thanks your wonderful service and thanks again for really caring about your customers.

I had the pleasure of staying at Candlewood Suites Destin, FL. for a recent business trip and what a great hotel. My room was a King Suite with a conference style desk and a mini kitchenette which made me fell like home away from home. I would definitely return to the Candlewood Suites, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the hotel is Pet Friendly.

This Candlewood Suites is expectational! Clean Jamie and other Staff are Professional but also
so accommodating you feel at home. Normally we only stay in privately owned selected Condo's
but now our first choice is here!

Best Hotel experience ever!

Room Tip: We have stayed in all types of rooms they have and they are great!
