“Great hotel for the Value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Not a swanky hotel but it was quite good!
I was welcomed by a very friendly staff member. My check in was smooth and easy.
My room was similar to a small studio w/ stove, fridge, and cabinets included.
Very clean and quiet. Great scenery (golf course view). Minuets away from MSU.

Very clean, comfortable accommodations. Bed very comfortable, please note that all rooms are one bed. Staff very polite and helpful. Very close to campus and access to the University Club next door a real plus. High end dining with decent prices. Suites do have a sofa couch for extra space. Refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher make eating in very easy. Two golf courses next door a real plus. Will definitely stay here again if opportunity presents itself.

I have been a long time visitor to Michigan State University as a student and parent of a student.The Candlewood Suites has provided a "home away from home" many times. I especially like the one bedroom suite with a small well equipped kitchen, separate bedroom and sleep sofa in the living area. There is also an in-house mini-grocery. The staff is very efficient and it is close to the campus and attached to a seminar/banquet area perfect for weddings.

I booked this motel on priceline.When I arrived I was given a room that had not been ready .There was food in the fridge and no blankets on the bed.I called the office and a gentlemen came right down. He also was disappointed with the condition of the room.He upgraded me with a wonderful room with a view of the golf course.I really appreciated how I was treated by the staff and how swiftly they corrected the problem.The highlight of the stay was access to Mingles restaurant which is reserved for University Club members.The food there was absolutely wonderful.A true 4 star restaurant

Room Tip: get a room on the second or third floor.The garden floor is kind of a half basement

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. It was a very good location on the MSU campus. It was is a quite and very green location beside the MSU golf course. The room had a full kitchen and was well equipped. I didn't cook- but I did pop the free popcorn that was left for me.

but also being greeted cheerfully & professionally helps rate this hotel 5 stars. Great location, restaurants & our Corporate office nearby. I love the refrigerator, stove & microwave in the room... have yet to stove or refrigerator but it's there for others who may use them. Just an overall welcoming, convenient place to stay. Rooms overlooking golf course & w/it being Fall, it's a beautiful view!

Room Tip: 2nd floor is actually main floor, as you come into front desk.

Im staying here for business and it is a great location. It is 2 miles from the michigan state campus. Ahhh where my son goes to school. Also 2 miles from Hawk Island recreational area which is a great park to walk at and bike at. Picnic and lake and splash area for kids there too. Very beautiful. As for the hotel its connected to the Michigan State University Club. nice place for dinner or work out club. It is safe at this hotel. They clean during the week ok. But you have to ask for stuff sometimes at the front desk. Theres a computer and internet for use free. the desk people are pleasant. the cookies in the lobby yummy. Im going to stay here because the location is awesome.

Room Tip: get s room on the bottom floor near the desk and entrance. safe and easy access to parking lot
