“Favorite place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is my favorite place to stay when we travel to visit family in Indianapolis, IN. The pet policy is exceptional. The pool and spa area are great. The grounds are well kept and the staff are friendly. This is generally not a family hotel, it is more of a hotel for workers that need long term accommodations. Because of this, there are usually not many families or children and this suites my purpose.
The only negative I feedback occurred on the Sunday we were there over the holidays. We were told the jets were not working on the spa. I found out from another guest that the real reason the spa was not working was the management was trying to save money. I was advised to ask for the manager next time. The spa was turned on the next day when the other guest complained. The staff lied to me.

Room Tip: Try to get a double or suite room. The single queen bed room does not have very much room on the s...

Stayed there for the weekend in November. Easy off and on the interstate. Place was clean and new looking. Loved the room and way better than any hotel. Wood trim around the doors made it feel like a home. Kitchen area was clean and we were able to fix meals without any problems. Look forward to coming back and staying again.

Our stay was 10/19/12. Just an overnight as my hubby was flying out to Asia for a business trip. The only issues we had were the hot tub and shuttle service and sticky kitchen floor. The hot tub's jets all point up and are not adjustable. Water spurts up in your face no matter what area you sit in. Otherwise, clean pool and hot tub. Pool towels were so nice and soft and big! Next problem was asking about shuttle service to the airport. The book in the room states it provides shuttle service plus there is a shuttle van behind hotel. The receptionist was very nice and said that this service was stopped in the last 6-8 months d/t it being used less. But ,since the book stated it did, she gave my husband a voucher for a free taxi ride to the airport. This was very nice of her considering I would have had to get up at 5 am and take him, cry alot and come back to try to get more sleep. lol The other problem we had was the kitchen wood type floor was sticky. I made it a point not to walk on it with bare feet. Otherwise our stay was nice and peaceful.

WOW - some of the reviews scared me. We stayed on 10-13. Hotel is super clean, modern and well apointed. Staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel property was very nice, clen and well maintained. It was a great value, and only about 7 miles to downtown if that. I will stay again.

This was our second stop on a "no plans hit the road vacation". We booked this room after staying the previous night in a Candlewood in Springfield ILL. We were so impressed with the clean, friendly accommodations we thought we had found our hotel chain for the trip. Upon check in the property looked pretty nice, not as new as the previous night but still quite nice. As we got on the elevator we noticed a smoke smell. We had made sure to book nonsmoking as our daughter has problems with even the smell of second hand smoke making it very uncomfortable to breath. We figured when we got to our room it would be better.

We were really shocked to open the room door and be hit in the face with a room that definitely was NOT a nonsmoking room!!! Everything smelled. My husband went down to the front desk and talked to the super nice night desk clerk. She gave him some room spray to try and help. She said that it was definitely a nonsmoking room but sometimes people will smoke in them without their knowledge.

The spray helped as long as we kept spraying it every 3-4 minutes directly in front of the air conditioner and on the furniture and drapes. Consequently everything was damp to sit on. I went down to the desk to get a snack from the snack area and get a movie for the kids a little later that evening. While talking to the same front desk clerk I was told that they hadbecom a complete nonsmoking facility just a couple of weeks earlier. Then she told me that it was their practice to occasionally allow smoking in nonsmoking rooms when asked to do so!!!! Why would you label it a nonsmoking room if you "occasionally" allow smoking in them.
Why didn't the cleaning staff realize how badly this room smelled of smoke and either as someone to fix it or have the status changed to smoking!

The next morning all the clothing smelled like we had been in a smoke filled bowling alley all night! Even our hair smelled like that.

PROS:
Friendly staff
comfortable beds (minus smoke smell)
Good choice of movies to watch.

CONS:
Smokey smelling "non-smoking" rooms.
Area not the best
Need a car to get to any major eating/entertainment areas

We were booked to stay at Candlewood Suites for two nights. The beds were very firm and uncomfortable. we had to relocate to another hotel for the second night. Every member of my family had a rough night on the beds. I had to sleep on the recliner. Now if you like a firm bed this Is a great hotel. It was clean and the room was nice. Hotel staff was great even with our early departure and complaints.

Enjoyed staying at the Candlewood Suites near the Airport. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The pool and hot tub was crystal clear. The staff at the front desk were particularly helpful and super nice. My husband loved the warm cookies that were served in the lobby. There was a refrig, ice maker, stove and microwave in the room. The little store by the lobby had enough food choices that you could buy and heat up in your room and the prices were reasonable. Because of the Superbowl there was transportation available into the city. Otherwise the hotel is very close to the airport and a convenient car ride into the city. I'm not going to rate the hotel on value because for the super bowl everything was inflated and I have no way to compare! Indianapolis did a great job preparing the city to host the super bowl.
