“Excellent Choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We looked at over a dozen Tripadvisor pages and decided on Candlewood suites in Lexington, Ky for a combination of reasons--location, price, and amenities. Candlewood was easy to find, just a hop from the highway. We were delighted with the clean and spacious room. The kitchenette, we did not think we needed, but turns out to be a bonus. We brought food "home" from dining out (The scrumptious Jalapeno's Mexican is a short drive away) and enjoyed a fun evening watching movies and rewarming our midnight snack. It's nice to have a pitcher of cold water in the fridge. The staff is friendly and helpful. The beds are comfy with plenty of pillows, and our 3rd floor room was perfectly quiet. We rested well and will certainly book here again.

Very good hotel, large rooms, nice kitchenette, bathroom are spacious. Staff was wonderful. Also want to thank Shawn for his outstanding customer service. Shawn went over and beyond to help us while we stayed there. He had great suggestions about where to go eat, and other information. Would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: The rooms are great, great for your money

We had planned on staying here for 3 nights, but we left and went home after staying just one night. I have chemical sensitivity and everywhere has the smell of competing chemicals. The staff was excellent and even took me to another room to see if it was better. They credited us $20 for our inconvenience when we checked out. The rooms are great for long stays or if you want a studio. It had a small kitchen with full size refrigerator, dishwasher, and 2 burner stove (no oven) plus microwave. The little store has a good selection with coffee for no charge.

We were in town for a weekend at Keeneland, and had a great experience. Room was clean and had all the amenities we could have needed. Close to everything.
Tatiana was very helpful at check-in and then again whenever I had a need. She really bent over backwards for my comfort. Will definitely stay there again next time in Lexington.

Room Tip: Call Tatiana!

I stayed at Candlewood Suites for about a month while in Lexington on business. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and the place exceeds all expectations for any extended stay property. This was my first time here, and after an extended stay in another city recently, my expectations were not very high. I was surprised on day one with check in procedure, and soon it became obvious that this was not your typical extended stay property.

I travel to the Candlewood Suites in Lexington on a weekly basis for work. If you are looking for a clean and wonderful place to stay with a friendly atmosphere, and the most accommodating staff members Tatiana and Melanie (Front desk manager) this is the place for you. Those two ladies go above and beyond to accommodate me, as well as many of the regulars. The only way this place could get better is if they had a hot tub on the property or a breakfast in the morning. A bar wouldn't hurt either.

Room Tip: Check in when Tatiana or Melanie is working.

For the past 13 years I have traveled with work staying at many different hotels. This hotel is very nice, clean, awesome bedding etc.... But the whole reason for this review (and I usually don't do reviews) is because of one person "Titiana" that checked me in. Out of all my visits in all different hotels she went above and beyond with telling me all the amenities in a friendly way. She gave tons of information in the brief time I talked with her without trying to rush the conversation like many people do as it is was probably scripted for them. This person seems to really like her job and is GREAT at what she does. Cudos to the manager/owner for hiring this person, keep her happy.
