I read all these great reviews on here that deemed this hotel #2 in the area and went ahead and booked for myself and my boyfriend. Granted, there isn't much in Elgin to begin with, so I figured our options were limited, but Candlewood looks really nice on the outside. I was totally disappointed. The price is definitely the best part. The room surprisingly smelled of stale old cigarrettes (even though its a non-smoking hotel) and moldy furniture. We kept the window open all night long. Perhaps it was just the room we were in, but it was so bad that I couldn't sleep and we decided to check out a day early. I noticed that there was a welcome bag of popcorn to be made in the microwave, so I was hoping to make popcorn, just to make the room smell better, and the popcorn bag looked and smelled old and moldy. I expected a lot better from Candlewood Suites.
