“Clean and Efficient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Room was clean and the location is great. Property was well maintained. We experienced no problems during the visit. The only drawback was no traffic light to get in and out, but other than that the location was great.

The overall atmosphere was wonderful. We came for the weekend and everything we were looking for was in the area.....Did not have to drive far. This hotel was child friendly and most of all SMOKE FREE. I would come back for a get away trip.

Check in took a little time but once we got in the room was nice and clean. Great space for a party of two. The kitchenette was nice but we found ourselves to be sharing the room with a couple of ants here. On the stove,desk and general kitchen area. The beds were like little clouds to lay on and the bathroom was nice as well. When entering the room there was a faint smell so we had get some febreze but was bad. The hotel service was very friendly. Very close to the shopping outlets and they offer free laundry service. The two night stay was pleasant. The bad part sounded like there was daycare on the floor above us.

Room Tip: Stay on top floor to avoid noise.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay here at Candlewood Suites. We are located in such a great spot for you to enjoy our beautiful beaches and also some great shopping! The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is only about a half of a mile away. The free laundry facilities on sight make it so convenient to wash and dry some of your clothes while you are here. Thank you for taking the time to let us know how great your stay was. We apologize for the noise in the room above you. Please let us know if you ever have another issue so that we can address it right away! We hope to see you again this summer!

I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Management and staff were extremely personable, professional and helpful. Any issues were immediately addressed. The rooms are perfectly appointed with a complete kitchen - including a dishwasher! - and comfortable furnishings. This location has a business center that I frequented day and night. The premises was completely secure and I had no qualms about using the business center, laundry (yes, free laundry!) , as well as the "Candlewood Cupboard" (a small general store) late at night. SO well-maintained; I never once saw any outstanding maintenance or cleaning issues. And that's saying a LOT because I was here during the peak of spring break and never even saw an overflowing trash can. I was in the process of moving and ended up staying for several weeks; I could have stayed elsewhere but chose not to because of the secure location and premises and remarkable staff. Highly recommend.

Thank you so much for allowing us to be your "Home Away from Home"! We are so glad to have you as part of our Candlewood family and look forward to seeing you again soon. It sounds like you were able to get some of your work done in our business center, which is conveniently located on our first floor. We hope that you were able to take a little time to enjoy our little piece of paradise. We are located half a mile from the largest outlet mall in the United States, and there are some great restaurants located there. Our employees thank you for staying with us and hope that you will be staying with us again in the near future.

First of all, the staff is wonderful. They are friendly and caring and go out of their way to make sure your stay with them is a great experience. We had a 2 room suite that was large and comfortable - even had 2 closets! Everything was very clean and well maintained. They have well stocked snack room that's on the "honor" system but no breakfast. After tasting some of the free breakfasts offered in other places, we didn't miss it. Your pet is welcome for a charge. Since this is an extended stay hotel, your room is not made up every day. Clean towels are available at the front desk - simply turn in your dirty ones. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days at Candlewood Suites.
We will definitely make this our home in Destin.

The staff here at Candlewood wants to thank you for your kind comments. Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed your time with us. We have such a great staff that goes out of their way in any way they can to help make your vacation or business trip a little better. The One Bedroom Suite that you stayed gives you so much space to settle in and be comfortable. It sounds like the Cupboard area was a perfect fit for you, as so many guests can relate. It's so convenient for anything you may have left behind, or for a snack when you are hungry. Thank you for taking the time to let us know what a great stay you had.

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.
