“Best hotel I've stayed at that is so welcoming and pet friendly!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

I LOVED this hotel! Upon checking in, I received complimentary water and candy for being a member. Just filled out quick, simple paperwork and paid a low $60 pet fee. There was a pet walking area included. Just so perfect for my little Maltese. The room was fantastic!! So clean! Had its own adorable kitchen. Pots and pans, popcorn, coffee, silverware, anything you could think of. Movies that you could rent were available at the front desk. The king sized bed was so comfy and the size of the room was so spacious. As for the bathroom, very clean and the water was odorless. All staff was incredibly friendly and so helpful. The pool was so relaxing after a day at the beach. While at the pool, there was a staff member pressure washing everything which was good to see how important maintenance is to them. This is going to be where we stay for any future vacation to Destin!!

Our entire staff wants to thank you for being one of our Priority Club Members and for choosing our hotel as your place to stay. We are so glad that you enjoyed your welcome gift at check in. I will pass on to our housekeeping staff how much you appreciate their hard work to make sure that your suite was nice and clean for you. We have such an amazing staff and they appreciate when a guest recognizes what a great job they do. It sounds like you were able to enjoy our beautiful pool area and took a little time to relax. We have quite a variety of movies for you to enjoy in your suite. It's nice to have a DVD player in your room to watch a movie after a long day at the beach. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We spent four days in Destin at the NCAA golf tournament. The rooms at the Candlewood Suites were very large and had many amenities, including a full kitchen, separate bedroom and large living area. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. Also, the hotel was quiet. We loved the convience store located just of the lobby as it had all the little snacks we wanted.

It was such an honor to have your group here for the NCAA Golf Tournament. We hope you had a great time while in Destin. The one bedroom suite that you stayed in is perfect for a group of people or a family. It gives you that "home away from home" feeling. We are so glad it was just what you needed. Everyone is so amazed when they go into our Cupboard for the first time! It has such a great variety of snacks, meals, drinks, and personal items that you may need. We hope to see you again soon! Please tell all the kids we said hello!

I only needed to stay in the area for one night and was looking for something inexpensive. I've never stayed in a Candlewood Suites before, but the price was right. The front desk was some of the nicest, most hospitable I've encountered in a long time. The room was nice and clean. They had DVDs you could borrow. And having a mini kitchen was a nice surprise (i wasnt expecting it but the fridge came in handy). I loved how cold the room was when I entered. Some hotels keep the rooms warmer snd let guests typurn down the air, but then the rooms are muggy when you enter. Not here! Since I was only there one night the lack of housekeeping wasn't an issue. But I can see how only having housekeeping come once a week would be frustrating if you were there for a longer stay. The hotel is pet friendly and walking to the elevator I heard a dog barking constantly. My room wasn't next to this room so it wasn't an issue for me and who knows, the insulation might be good enough to keep sounds out from room to room. But I would be annoyed if I had to listen to a dog barking. Overalli was very happy with my stay. The awesome front desk staff really won me over!

Our housekeepers strive on a daily basis to keep our property clean for our guests. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to let everyone know how much you enjoyed your stay here at Candlewood. We are honored to be your hotel of choice!

Overall, clean and comfortable but not alot of value for the money they charge. They justify weekly housekeeping because they are an exteneded stay hotel. You have to bring dirty towels and linens to the front desk to get new ones. Housekeepers will not replenish you off their carts. The internet speed was so slow, I thought it was 1995. The TV kept giving us a problem and the response was "you know how TV's are". Overall a nice place, but definately not alot of value for what you will pay.

Room Tip: Stay at the end of the hall near the stairs. With only one really slow elevator, it could be a long...

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.
