“Ok place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This was our first time staying in a Candlewood Suite. Our room was nice. It was clean and comfortable which is the most important thing. Internet service was terrible. Didn't like that but we weren't in the room all that much so wasn't too much of an inconvenience. Also the pillows left a lot to be desired. Took 4 pillows to make one decent pillow! They need replaced. But overall it was a nice place. Front desk staff was very nice.

Stayed April 2015, traveled as a couple

Staying at Candlewood Inn and Suites is like coming home. You are greeted and cared for by the friendly staff. Room is clean an comfortable equipped with complete kitchenette. The pool is inviting and the workout room available 24/7. What more could one want.

I always stay here when I am in Lafayette. The rooms are always clean and the staff is always friendly and helpful. I really enjoy having the kitchen in my room. Eating out every night gets old quick. I will definitely be back next time I'm in Lafayette.

This hotel is very nice and clean. Comfortable beds and nice linens. I am very picky about my sheets but these were nice and warm but not too heavy. Loved the full size refrigerator in the kitchen and nice to not have to hunt down an ice machine. Loved the free laundry and I could do that while I worked out in wrec room. The front desk was very nice and helpful with my questions. Definitely will stay again.

Clean rooms are my priority. I really didn't need the mini kitchen but did use it for coffee & some of dishes were put away dirty. Many hotels are lacking in providing gods pay for housekeeping causing poor or below poor standards. But this hotel was clean & comfortable

It seems that there are a lot of precious folk out there expecting 5* service at what is a thoroughly decent hotel.
Example: "Check-in went smooth until I asked for a fold-up rack to place my luggage; none in the hotel - at all! Guess they want you to put your luggage on the floor."
Absolutely remarkable. Maybe it's an American thing.
For this well-travelled Brit, however, I found the Candlewood ticked all the boxes. Room is spacious and comfortable; bathroom clean with a decent shower and a great kitchenette.
The pool was closed but in this instance they allow guests to use the pool at the hotel next door. Gym was small but adequate.
All in all, it's a good option. My only small criticism is that rooms across town seem overpriced for the destination. With respect, Lafayette is hardly a choice holiday destination (I'm here to see my daughter) so I don't understand the pricing of rooms. Far too high. But this in't specific to this hotel, but a criticism of the prices in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to post such a wonderful review of your recent stay with us. We are glad to hear that our property was a good fit for you and you found it to be clean, comfortable and convenient. I'm sorry that our pool was down for repairs during your stay. It is back up and running again and looks wonderful. Hopefully next time you are here you will get to enjoy using it. We look forward to seeing you again next time you are in Lafayette!

Check-in went smooth until I asked for a fold-up rack to place my luggage; none in the hotel - at all! Guess they want you to put your luggage on the floor, because there is no countertop space, either. There was a wall thermostat that evidently didn't work; used the adjustment on the AC unit. Bed was comfortable enough. Free coffee pouches for you to make your own in the morning. Meijer's grocery store across the street so you can buy whatever and put in the fridge. No housekeeping, need to keep yourself neat. Fairly quiet location, room was opposite the freeway. Guests like to smoke right next to the entrance (hotel staff, too) so you need to walk through a smelly cloud to enter. Could be worse. Don't know why they call it "suites"; the rooms are normal size. Actually crowded because of the "kitchenette" with fridge, microwave, sink and cooktop. Internet was much slower than my iPhone "hotspot", so didn't use it. My feeling is the price was a little high for this kind of lodgings.

Room Tip: Try to get a room opposite the highway.

Dear Fred C.,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us. Candlewood Suites is named as such because we do have kitchens in all of our rooms. Most of our guests enjoy the full size refrigerator, 2 burner stove top, dishwasher, microwave, and cabinets stocked with pots, pans, plates, bowls, cups, silverware, etc that you would need to utilize the kitchen in the room. I'm sorry that you found this space to make your room more crowded. That is certainly not it's intention.

In order to respect our extended stay guests privacy, we do offer housekeeping to any guest staying 7 nights of more one time per week. Again, we have found that the majority of our guests prefer the idea that we respect their privacy.

We do hope that you will come back and see us again and that we can make your next stay a little more than "middle of the road".

Sincerely,
Christin G.
