“Better for long term stay than short trips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Stayed for 2 nights on a business trip Starting August 5th. The room was clean and surprisingly quiet with the number of children running around at night (I didn't notice them, the front desk clerk asked me if it was an issue as I checked out). The only noise I noticed was a dog barking in the hallway in the evening. The location is ok, but there aren't very many restaurants at this exit...not nearly as many as there are at the next exit in towards Hattiesburg.

I didn't stay for long enough to have housekeeping come by (they come by once a week) though if I was staying for longer, I would have needed to get new towels from reception more often than every week. Parking wasn't an issue. I like that it is a pet-friendly property (even though I didn't have my dog) and will remember that for the future. There are even special tags to put on the door warning that there is a pet inside and to not come in. There is a good sized kitchen which would come in handy for longer stays. I didn't put it to use though. And I do like the setup of the desk area. There was a medium sized fitness room with a weight machine and various aerobic machines (treadmill, etc). As there isn't daily cleaning and this isn't a phenomenal location, I'm surprised the room rates are that close to $100/nt.

We thank you for your business, your stay, and your insightful review. The amenities which are found on our property are in fact primarily focused on extended stay guests since we are an extended stay hotel and we sincerely apologize if that was not made clear during the time of your check-in . We understand that as a transient traveler your preference for a regular hotel; but we are humbled that you gave us a shot and at least experienced our amenities. Candlewood Suites is an all pet-friendly hotel and we know that at times our friendly four-legged guests may cause somewhat of a commotion but we will work on not having that as an issue from here on out and we appreciate your notification on such an inconvenience. Moreover, though Housekeeping does only come once a week; any toiletry items, linen, or towels are available from the front desk anytime during your stay and we would be more than happy to supply them at your request. Also, if needed, we can ensure that you receive multiple housekeeping visits because we know that some of our extended stay guests may need/want a little tidying up in between their regular housekeeping schedule. With that said, we thank you again and hope that if you are ever in town and plan on having an extended stay we are to accommodate you and have you stay here with us, so that you can really get a feel of our franchise and team and become a part of our Candlewood family.

We stayed here on the way to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Rooms were dingy and bathroom could have been cleaner. I found hairs in the bed and a cockroach crawling in the sink. No continental breakfast. For the price I expected more.

Absolutely wonderful experience. Immaculate and beautifully decorated suites with everything you need for an extended stay. Free laundry, indoor/outdoor pool and fitness center. Staff is very helpful and extremely friendly.

Room Tip: The one bedroom suite is great if one is up and other is sleeping.

My check in date was in August, 2012. Checked out June, 2013. Wonderful and caring staff ... my new adopted extended family. Stayed in an one bedroom suite. They do not have a restaurant or swimming pool; however, their sister hotel 'Holiday Inn' does. The restaurant, Bapa's Bistro, delivers. Loved it. It was my home away from home.

Room Tip: Rooms on the end are much quieter. The one bedroom suites on left side is the sunniest which can mak...

Scott, thank you so much for your heartfelt review and comments. From the entire team here at Candlewood we thank you kindly. Though the circumstances for your stay were grave, we were happy to have you and get to know you. Your presence was always uplifting and we sincerely enjoyed having you here at our hotel; one of those bittersweet moments when you were gone – happy that you were able to go back home and sad that you were leaving us. But, with that said, we are extremely happy that you are settled into your new home and we hope that it brings you joy. We thank you again for your stay, your kindness, and your friendship and know that if you are to ever stay with us again, we’ll have the diet coke ready for you in the morning before work.

Our first time to stay at a Candlewood. I've looked around to find something to criticize; even the vents in the ceiling are spotless. An added desk in lobby area with internet ready computer would be nice. I recommend and would stay here again.

We'd never stayed at this franchise before so we didn't know what to expect. This room had a full-sized fridge with ice maker, two-burner cook top, sink, and even a dishwasher. Dishes and utensils were supplied. It came with two double beds, a large desk. and TV. The bathroom was spacious. The whole room was clean. There was a recliner, also, but it was a bit worn. This is probably a great place for an extended stay, but we would've preferred a regular hotel room with a free breakfast. Staff was very friendly and accommodating! Snacks and various items were available in the lobby. There was a workout room, but I did not use it. I didn't even look to see if there was a pool.
