“Great staff, great stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Enjoyed one night here recently. Found the hotel to be in good shape, clean and very functional. The staff were what set it apart from other hotels - very accommodating, patient and helpful. Location is great, lots of dining options around the hotel, grocery store, gas stations etc. Shuttle to the airport was very efficient, on time and very friendly drivers.

Parking at the airport would have been $80.00, so we chose to search for a motel nearby in this price range. The booking online gave me a total of $100.56 which was pretty reasonable. When we arrived, we were told that this price was the room only. The park, sleep and fly was going to be a total of $146.89. The difference of $46.33 was to pay for the airport shuttle and the parking for up to 14 days. Seemed a little steep to me.

When we returned from our trip after midnight, the shuttle was waiting for us and the room was okay, if a little worn, but my wife was not impressed by a couple of small spots of blood on the sheets. She mentioned it at the front desk in the morning and they were very apologetic and we were given a couple of vouchers for the snack bar. I think we'll try another place next time.

Dear Martin V-

I want to thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I understand the reservation you booked at first was for the room only which would have included parking for the one night that you stayed. In order to leave your car you needed to book the park and fly package. This was the difference in the price. The package includes up to 14 days of parking and overnight accomidations. Parking at the airport is 8 dollars a day for outside parking and 11 dollars a day for garage parking. I aplogize that there seemed to be spots on your sheets. I have shared your comments with the housekeeping department. We would love for you to give our hotel another try if you ever are in the Syracuse area again. Thank you.

While staff was friendly and shuttle efficient, I thought the room looked a little dingy and the beds were small and uncomfortable. Parking was convenient, but for the price, I think there are much better places to stay park and fly in Syracuse. No breakfast included or available. Lobby looks messy and unprofessional.

Dear Recently Retired-

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am glad you found our staff to be friendly and efficient. I am sorry that you found the beds to be uncomfortable, with all mattresses it comes down to personal preference as to what you find comfortable and uncomfortable. Although we do not offer a complimentary breakfast we do have breakfast items available for purchase in our Candlewood Cupboard. Thank you again for your comments.

Stayed at this hotel for one night while traveling on winter vacation.

The Good:

-Reasonable price
-Polite and helpful service
-Convenient location - To both I-81 and the NYS Thruway - also lots of restaurants and other retail shops close by.
-Clean pleasant lobby

The Bad:

-Room was a somewhat dated
-Bed was small and uncomfortable
-Sleeper sofa had a thin uncomfortable mattress

Overall it served its purpose very well and I wouldn't hesitate to to stay here again. It is definitely a value hotel.

Marissa went totally above and beyond anything her job title holds for responsibilty with helping me and my family getting my mother situated in her room for weeks to come. It's a real good feeling to know she'll be there ready to help in any way she can. A true asset to Candlewood Suites. If she's not promoted to Management duties soon, then somebody in management now, is not doing their job.

We chose this location because it was close to the airport and this hotel did not disapoint us. With in a mile from the airport and prompt service made it a great stay. The room was clean and comfortable.

However their cleaning staff need some training.

We stayed at the hotel one night and found the facility suffecient and the staff very friendly. The desk staff were very nice and the airport shuttle drivers were very friendly. We were able to leave our car at the hotel for $5.00 a night while we were on vacation in Florida. The hotel is close to the airport and so for those reasons alone I would stay at this hotel again.

However like i mentioned above the cleaning staff need some refresher training.

The bathtub may not have been cleaned for several days. First thing in the am while getting ready to leave for the airport I discovered a ring around the bathtub and many long black hairs still in the bathtub. I'm not a fn of other people's hair especially in the bathtub I am about to use.

The dirt ring arpund the tub was an issue as well.

Other than that I would stay there again. Perhaps this was a one-off issue.
